If Manchester needed another eye-opener to make one and all realize how the power has shifted in recent times, the results of the weekend gone by would serve as perfect examples.
Manchester City played like Champions and thumped their opponents Huddersfield Town 6-1, with Sergio Aguero scoring a hat-trick.
However, the red half of Manchester put in a performance to forget, as they went down to Brighton with the scoreline reading 3-2.
The negativity surrounding Jose Mourinho and his coaching tactics at the club have been heavily criticized in the past few months, and this result was perfect for the world to turn their eyes on the Portuguese boss once again.

Ed Woodward was present to witness this disastrous result unfold before his eyes, and he could not stop himself from visiting Manchester United‘s room after the game ended.
According to various reports, especially those coming from Manchester Evening News, Woodward is believed to have spent five minutes with his players and staff before leaving the ground.
The Chief of United generally pays the players a visit with the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton or Sir Alex Ferguson beside him, but this time, he decided to go there without company.
While Mourinho was not one to criticize his squad for the loss, captain Paul Pogba admitted to him and his teammates not being at their best, and hence, failing to get the desired result.
Times are tough for one of England’s biggest clubs, and making matters potentially worse is their next fixture, Tottenham Hotspur. Harry Kane has scored in August and United have lost already. Recipe for disaster?
