Beginning of the end for Manchester?

At the weekend both Manchester United and Manchester City were involved in shock defeats which has raised questions already that maybe this is the end of Manchester Domination.

Manchester United lost at home to West Brom for the first in over 20 years and have had the worst start to a premier league campaign since 1989. Despite the fact the years in between represented the Sir Alex Ferguson era; current manager David Moyes has inherited the exact same squad that Sir Alex Ferguson won the premier league with the season previous.
Not taking anything away from the incredible performance by West Brom, especially by Sessegnon who managed to single handedly command the midfield at Old Trafford. Despite this, it was clear for all to see that there was something wrong in the Manchester one-up, looking out of position on many an occasion with the strange decision to start Phil Jones in Midfield.
Despite being quite early on in the season, Manchester United will be very unhappy sitting in 12th place and right now already look very unlikely to retain their title.

Manchester City throw away a 2-1 lead away at Aston Villa to lose 3-2 with the winning goal containing a major defensive error letting Andreas Weimann to calmly dribble passed Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart and celebrate with the Aston Villa fans. Manchester City seemed to have started very well, especially after am impressive victory over Manchester United However, this loss to ASton Villa seems to have dampened to club’s spirits and go into a Champions League match in the week against Bayern Munich with something to prove; that they are a team still fighting to win the league and possibly even the Champions League.

Both Manchester clubs have definitely not performed to what the spectators were expecting: easy, relaxed victories with both clubs leading the way at the top of the table. But the Manchester City 6th and Manchester United all the way down in 12th, could this be the beginning of the end for the two giants of the game?
