Jose Mourinho must bounce back after Chelsea woe, winless City at WBA

ESPN FC's Stewart Robson explains why Jose Mourinho may have lost some confidence after the first month of the season.

Manchester United need to bounce back from last Sunday's 4-0 embarrassment at Chelsea when Burnley come to Old Trafford this Saturday.

Jose Mourinho's men managed to get back on track after beating Manchester City in the EFL Cup in midweek but they have won just once in the league since Aug. 27.

City, meanwhile, are in trouble. Pep Guardiola travels to West Brom having not won in six matches. Elsewhere, last season's two title rivals Leicester and Tottenham face each other, Sunderland host Arsenal...

Pep Guardiola says Man City's six-match winless run is part of coaching, but is confident his side can recover.

With Manchester City now winless in six matches, Stewart Robson says questions could be asked of Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola is not the type of manager who will blindly subscribe to clichés about English football, as a comment at a recent press conference demonstrated.

Pep Guardiola, in worst slump of his career, will stick to his plan at Man City

With Manchester City now winless in six matches, Stewart Robson says questions could be asked of Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola was treated like footballing royalty when he arrived in England. Manchester City had got their man and surely success was only a heartbeat away. Here was the coach whose style and sophistication on and off the pitch would make City the envy of their rivals.

In fairness, Pep himself was the first to say it was not going to be that simple while other managers -- notably Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp -- warned him that the Premier League was a more demanding beast than most.

Pablo Maffeo and Aleix Garcia boost Guardiola in Man City's winless run

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether Pep Guardiola is under pressure at Manchester City.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola might be sick of only taking positives out of his side's defeats recently, but until results improve that's the best he's going to be able to do.

Wednesday evening's 1-0 loss at rivals Manchester United in the EFL Cup will have left him feeling pretty low, as the Catalan's slump to six games without a win at his new club marks his longest winless streak of his managerial career.

The EFL Cup was his fourth priority of the season and his starting lineup suggested...
