Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has claimed that champions Manchester United are very much weaker without Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez.
Mark Hughes went on to say that United have lost two significant players from last season and that any team would be affected by that. Hughes also added that a team cannot afford to lose players of that standard and not replace them.
Mark Hughes also said that he watched a number of United’s matches and don’t think that they are playing as well as they did last season.
He ended by saying that United’s performance against Tottenham in their 3-1 victory was their stand-out performance and that they have been below par prior to that.
