Sunderland became the latest club to upset Moyes's team in the first leg of their League Cup semifinal Tuesday, the first time since 1932 that United had lost their initial three games of the year.The two cup defeats followed a stinging home reverse in the league against Tottenham Hotspur that left United seventh in the table and 11 points adrift of leaders Arsenal. All top four teams play away from home this week, and the Premier League lead could change hands three times over the weekend.Leaders Arsenal, who are two points clear of Chelsea and one ahead of City, will visit Aston Villa Monday.A 3-1 defeat by Villa in the opening match of the season spurred the doom mongers, who had been prophesying a difficult campaign for Arsene Wenger's team, into overdrive. However, it preceded their transfer-record signing of Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil, and eight wins from their next nine games propelled Arsenal to the top of the standings.
