Perfect start to the season! Not quite on Manchester's level but still, we're yet to concede!

A draw against Bournemouth but a perfect rest of the month culminating in a great 4-1 win away to Liverpool and a 3-0 win at home to Real Madrid in the Champions League!

Not exactly setting the world alight with goals and drawing away to both Sunderland and Newcastle sees us fall down to 3rd but we managed to beat Man Utd in the league and Chelsea in the EFL Cup where we'll now meet Stoke in the Quarter Finals. In the Champions League it's looking really close, but not for Celtic. We've also lost one of the few foreigners Edimilson Fernandes for 4-5 months with a damaged achilles tendon.

A defeat at home to Sporting but a massive win against Celtic...means next to nothing as we're 3rd with a game to go...Real Madrid away from home. In the league we're still unbeaten and just 2 points off the top but we have a disgruntled Reece Oxford who wants to join Man Utd since he doesn't think we can ever win the league.

Challenge complete! We destroyed CF Pachuca in the Club World Cup and we've qualified for the 1st knockout round of the Champions League as group winners! And we're still unbeaten in the league still! But Man Utd are looking unstoppable.

Our first league loss of the season...and then another against Fulham :( And even though we have 3 games in hand over Man Utd they're a massive 14 points clear and are scoring on average 3 goals per game!

Crash out of the FA Cup against Newcastle and a defeat away to Man Utd sees us 8 points behind them albeit with a game in hand. We look very likely to qualify for the Quarter Final of the Champions League following a 4-0 away win against Sevilla and we scrape another EFL Cup win following a penalty shootout against Liverpool.

A terrible loss away to Leicester and an away draw to Norwich who equalised in the 92nd minute further diminishes our chances of winning the league with us being 8 points behind with 7 games left.

Man Utd and Milan are the only teams I'd really be worried about, and we got Milan.

Flying through this challenge man!  I suppose the further down the coefficient table you go, the longer the saves are likely to take.  I'm looking forward to your Champions League win with St. Johnstone in 2193 ;)

Perfect month in the league but Man Utd are unstoppable and almost have triple digits for goals scored, and following our narrow win over Milan we now face Man Utd in the Champions League Semi-Final. Great.

Defeat to Huddersfield left us just one point short of our record Premier LEague points total of 88, which would have been great to beat but we wouldn't have won the league anyway with Man Utd finishing on 96 points and scoring 111! We also lost the Champions League to Tottenham who will qualify for the group stage despite finishing 9th and Newcastle qualifying for the Europa League by winning the FA Cup.

Chris Smalling - Reece Oxford (ResA) - Andre Wisdon

Nathaniel Clyne                                                                                      Danny Rose

Jack Wilshere - James Ward-Prowse

Raheem Sterling - Ross Barkley - Edimilson Fernandes

I really think that Andre Wisdom should be swapped with Calum Chambers and that Jack Wilshere should be moved to AMC and take Edimilson Fernandes' place and Harry Winks should take the now vacant MC spot.

He's nothing if not consistent, that Carlo. Must be why Brendan Rodgers calls him the Ex-Lax of managers.

A big loss against Juventus to start off and then a draw against Beitar with nothing to play for follwed up with a tight away win to Lazio, a mixed start for sure.

A really good month with the only goal being conceded being the one which cost us 3 points in the away loss to Pescara, this sees us climb right up to 4th after 6 games and we're top of the Europa League group early on!

A very mixed month, after the win away to Inter we were briefly top of the table, as you can see, that didn't last long! We're still doing slightly better than I expected after 11 games and even though we drew away to Sparta Praha we're sitting top of the group still.

Unbeaten in the league sees us stick 4th but with the best defence and a surprise loss at home to Vorskla sees us fall to 2nd with a game to go.

A draw away to Ajax was enough for us to win the group with just 9 points! :D And an unbeaten month in the league sees us tying on points with Juventus in 2nd. They may have a game in hand but it's still a great spot to be in!

We lost away to Juventus but perfect other than that and we're solidifying 3rd since we sit 5 points ahead of surprise package Empoli and 10 clear of Milan!

In the Europa League we've drawn FC Kobenhavn in the 2nd Knockout Round who seem like an easy tie but they beat Benfica 5-3.
