Anthony Martial's Emphatic Response Keeps United in the Hunt for Top Four

Anthony Martial's Emphatic Response Keeps United in the Hunt for Top Four

Wasn't that the perfect week in a very long time for Manchester United and Jose Mourinho? Or is it too little too late? Either way, you would struggle to write the script if you tried. Following the trouncing of Chelsea and  a nail-biting finish in Europe, United win a Premier League game without hassle on a weekend for a change, when their rivals for a place in the top four failed to improve on their current points tally. It was …
Nil and Niller: Europa League is the Only Remaining Basket for Man United

Nil and Niller: Europa League is the Only Remaining Basket for Man United

Manchester United made absolute arses of themselves yet again. Another two points dropped at Old Trafford, another opportunity to capitalise on a favourable game-week squandered, another game where the home side almost managed to score and another game where the opposition goalkeeper played a blinder. The Red Devils have drawn their eleventh league game this campaign, a whopping eighth at the Theatre of Dreams which has reached a stage where calling it the Theatre of Draws wouldn't raise any eyebrows. Mourinho's …
Lingard Launches United Closer to the Top Four in the Premier League

Lingard Launches United Closer to the Top Four in the Premier League

Manchester United managed to shake off fatigue concerns to overcome a stubborn Middlesbrough in Riverside on Sunday, which saw them ascend the Premier League table for the first time since game-week 11. Mourinho fielded a back three again - for the third consecutive game this season, not to mention against a team that has massively struggled to score goals, his decision was slightly perplexing. The visitors looked a hastily assembled side at least on paper, clearly a consequence of injuries …
Holders Crash Out as Mourinho Prepares for the Run In

Holders Crash Out as Mourinho Prepares for the Run In

It was very predictable in the end. Manchester United clinging on to avoid embarrassment at Stamford Bridge staring at the prospect of only their third defeat since late October - a result that would deny them a fifth trip to Wembley in under a year. United fielded a back three for the second game in row - probably just the second time in Mourinho's managerial career stretching roughly across 800 odd games in all competitions. With Rashford and Mkhitaryan playing …
Arsenal's defeat to Liverpool left more Questions than Answers

Arsenal's defeat to Liverpool left more Questions than Answers

It was Forrest Gump's Momma that said "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get". She could actually have been talking about Liverpool; such is the unpredictability of Jürgen Klopp's side. Who else could go from insipidly losing at Hull to convincingly beating an in-form Tottenham, to then shambolically losing to a down and out Leicester City, only to respond by beating fellow top four hopefuls Arsenal? Liverpool under Klopp are still the box of chocolates that Forrest Gump's …
Man United Travel Back in Time to Drop a Further Two Points against Bournemouth

Man United Travel Back in Time to Drop a Further Two Points against Bournemouth

If anything, it was déjà vu for Manchester United at Old Trafford. A score draw when it seemed they could finally permanently climb the league table where they've stayed sixth for the last 138 days and as a result, will continue to do at least until they play their next Premier League game in two weeks' time. It was arguably the weirdest game Manchester United have played under Mourinho so far. Never short of controversies, the game saw a sending off, player …
Mata, Makeshift Full-Backs & Man United Marching On

Mata, Makeshift Full-Backs & Man United Marching On

Manchester United have made it to the last 16 of the Europa League, thanks to a 1-0 win (4-0 agg) at St.Etienne and will therefore remain in the hat for the draw which is set to take place in Nyon on the 24th of February. Mourinho stood by his word as he fielded a eleven that was not far from his best - with the front three of Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata. Paul Pogba also played the whole ninety …
Pogba and Ibrahimovic Remain the Key Men at United

Pogba and Ibrahimovic Remain the Key Men at United

If a single game epitomized the 2016/17 of Manchester United, it was Blackburn away in the cup. United fielded a side with seven changes from their previous game at Old Trafford, with one eye on the second leg in France - despite their more than sufficient three goal lead on aggregate gained from the first leg in Manchester. The Red Devils, lived up to their recent reputation of not playing to their full potential in the first half, and duly …
