Mourinho's game management shone as United snatch draw

Mourinho's game management shone as United snatch draw

Manchester United and Liverpool played out a rather eventful 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, as James Milner first half penalty was cancelled out by Zlatan Ibrahimovic's deft header in a hotly contested affair between the North West giants. This meant that United's impressive seven game winning run in all competitions was snapped at the hands of Sunday's visitors but they still remain one of Europe's in form sides having gone unbeaten now in 16 games - the highest active unbeaten streak …
Lee Mason Did Manchester United a Huge Favour

Lee Mason Did Manchester United a Huge Favour

Twelve months is a long time in football. United started December 2015 with a goal-less draw at home to West Ham United, crashed out of the Champions League in Germany, lost three further games in the league to then newly promoted Bournemouth, Norwich City, Stoke City on Boxing Day and ended the year with a 0-0 draw against Chelsea at Old Trafford, in a month that sucked every last ounce of hope the fans had of any potential progress under Louis …
Manchester United Reaping the Rewards of a Successful Summer Window

Manchester United Reaping the Rewards of a Successful Summer Window

Manchester United romped away with another fairly comfortable win against the returning David Moyes' Sunderland on Boxing Day stretching their winning streak to five - in all competitions. United started the game, 3 points off fifth placed Tottenham Hotspur and despite the momentum they had built up in an unbeaten run leading up to the game that had just hit double figures, the pressure was on them to improve their results at home and keep converting the advantage on the pitch …

Individual Mistakes will Cost Man United a Champions League Spot

Manchester United drew another game in the Premier League, this time at Goodison Park against Everton - dropping two more points in their Mourinho-led quest to begin their ascendancy. The latest draw not only dealt a decisive blow in their ambitions to win the league after three mediocre seasons, it has also put their chances of finishing in the Champions League positions in serious doubt. Manchester United, fresh from a rampant win against West Ham United in the EFL cup, …
Antonio Valencia Plus the Red Devils' Midfield Dominance

Antonio Valencia Plus the Red Devils' Midfield Dominance

Manchester United somehow conceded a late equalizer to Arsenal in a game that was pretty one sided until the last minute of normal time at Old Trafford - their third consecutive draw at home in the league, the first time that's happened since April 1992. After an unorthodox and patched up side that did the business against Swansea, Mourinho fielded a very strong eleven from the squad that was available to him with the midfield particularly consisting of Michael Carrick, Ander …
Should Manchester United dare not to Zlatan?

Should Manchester United dare not to Zlatan?

Football is a sport that continues to throw surprises at us and it's this glorious uncertainty that is associated with the game that everyone invests their time and money for. Mourinho's Manchester United are at the epicenter of this business in England, being completely unpredictable and at times unrecognizable from week to another. Not many would deny or even be shocked at the fact that their recent goalless draw against newly promoted Burnley football club also saw their best performance in …
Liverpool Finally Beat a Tony Pulis Side

Liverpool Finally Beat a Tony Pulis Side

Tony Pulis, the name itself evokes a sense of tedium and a bit of apprehension among Liverpool supporters. He, of the long ball game, of the extremely physical style of play and of gritty determination, brought his West Bromwich Albion side to Anfield this weekend, and the media – mainstream as well as social – was abuzz with stats about Pulis’ great record against the Reds. Pulis’ sides had not lost a league game against Liverpool since the February of …

Chelsea 4-0 Man Utd | Why It Is Not The End Of The World for United

It's never nice to lose a football match, particularly on a Sunday evening. And when the margin is big enough so that a defeat becomes an embarrassment, it's hard to come away with plenty of positives. But there are some that can be taken from this defeat, United's 3rd in the league and 4th in all competitions. Manchester United's start at Stamford Bridge was as bad as anyone could have imagined going into an away game, especially against a team …
