Louis van Gaal and his Manchester United squad are yet to register their first back-to-back wins in the 2014-15 season of the English Premier League, but after winning over West Ham United (2-1), the Red Devils could finally string up two straight wins should they overcome Everton on October 5 at 19:00 (GMT+8). Everton rendered Manchester United scoreless the last time these two sides meet, Everton pocketing the 2-0 win.
Aston Villa head back home after a 3-0 defeat to Chelsea, and it seems that the nightmare is just starting for the team as they host Manchester City on October 5, 00:30(GMT+8). Christian Benteke the one to give Aston Villa the killer instinct they lacked recently? Manchester City are struggling at home after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea, but it looks unlikely that they will capitulate against Aston Villa.
Inter Milan being manhandled by Cagliari (1-4) illustrate Inter Milan’s persisting defensive woes as they succumbed to their first defeat of the 2014-15 Serie A season. Walter Mazzarri's side conceded just one goal this season prior to the Cagliari match, only to allow four goals from a lower-ranked club. The host is looking at equalling and possibly even overtake leaders Juventus and AS Roma in Serie A. Visiting Fiorentina on October 6, 02:45(GMT+8), how will Inter respond? Icardi and Osvaldo upfront maybe?
