"Itâs generally a good month for us,â Sir Alex says in the new issue of Inside United, out 5 December. âWe usually get ourselves to the New Year in a challenging position, and thatâs where you want to be. When you have the second half of the season in front of you, you know full well that pressure can affect everyone, thereâs no question about that. We tend to do not too badly.
"The start of the month, with City away, is a hard one, but then weâve got Sunderland, Reading, Swansea, West Brom â weâve got a reasonable programme, so we should be expected to gather some points there.â
