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 …

Over-Reliance on Ibrahimovic is Hindering Manchester United's Progress

United drew a game for the eighth time in the Premier League after a difficult and frustrating encounter at the Bet365 stadium on a nippy Saturday afternoon. It was in many ways, the 2016/17 season in a nutshell under Mourinho that Manchester United managed to recover after an early wobble, create more than enough opportunities to win the game, yet somehow only manage to score once, thanks to a world class strike from substitute Wayne Rooney.

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 …

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 …

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 …
