To be sure, Ole Gunner's club has started off impressively in their pursuit of the Premier League title, winning four games and drawing one so far this season. However, his squad has only kept one clean sheet in their first five games, indicating that he still has a lot of work to do with his defensive unit.

It is clear from Liverpool's good start to the season that they are serious about winning the Premier League and are prepared to battle with Chelsea, Liverpool, and other top-tier opponents this season.

The Red Devils are currently in third place in the Premier League standings with 13 points, following their 1-2 victory over West Ham.

However, they might be knocked out of the top four by three Premier League games in October. Considering that these are major games, they should present a greater challenge than their previous contests.

The first matchup is between Leicester and Manchester United (16th of October)

Leicester City has a strong record when it comes to playing Manchester United. Last season, they were able to defeat Manchester United both at home and away. Without a doubt, Ole Gunner's men would have a difficult time in this fight.

Despite the fact that Leicester City have not had a particularly good start to the season, Brendan Rodgers' side will be eager to pick up all three points when they play Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United vs. Liverpool, game two (24th of October)

Manchester United will play host to Liverpool on the 24th of October, following their Champions League match against Atlanta.

This season, Liverpool is widely considered to be a viable contender for the Premier League title. They've won four and drawn one of their first five games this season, giving them a 4-0 record. Liverpool have only conceded one goal since the beginning of the season, indicating that they are a tenacious defensive unit.

The most recent meeting between these two teams ended in a 4-2 Liverpool victory at Old Trafford. United will undoubtedly require a victory in this match if they are to remain in the top four at the end of October.

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United (30th October)

Manchester United will pay a visit to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium towards the end of the month of October.

Tottenham began the season with a victory over the reigning Premier League champions, Manchester City. We are all aware that it is difficult to back Pep's Mancity, but if Tottenham can do it without conceding a goal, then Manchester United should be really concerned.
