Mourinho is in his 'zone' at United - Is that a good thing?

Mourinho is in his 'zone' at United - Is that a good thing?

When Mourinho joined Manchester United as a wounded individual, his pride hurting after the sack, a reaction was expected. A reaction and response that would entail both on and off the pitch shenanigans, backed up by good results. He did not disappoint, looking at the larger picture. Mourinho won two trophies and a shield in his first season - continuing the now growing winning mentality at the football club. The club finished sixth in the league, but the signs of …

Manchester United v Benfica Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

The Champions League is back and it feels like ages since United claimed victory in Portugal on a night when things were not exactly straight-forward, thanks to an unforced error from the 18-year old goalkeeper Mile Svilar. On Tuesday night, for the Red Devils, the pathway to the Round of 16 is clear.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: So near yet so far?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: So near yet so far?

Manchester United, at the time of writing, are running low on momentum - momentum which I argued was the buzzword under Mourinho in 2017/18, was almost willingly lost at Anfield in a draw that was devoid of everything the Red Devils were in the first two months of the campaign. Mourinho paid the price at last for snapping a series of positive and attacking displays - trading off all the fearlessness the young forward line spearheaded by Lukaku, Rashford and …

Benfica v Manchester United | Champions League Preview

In midweek, Manchester United will play their second game on the road as they make the short trip to Lisbon to take on the biggest club side in Portuguese football. United and Benfica have storied histories in this competition with arguably United's 4-1 win against a Eusebio-led Benfica in 1968 - the most memorable, making Manchester United the first English club to win the European Cup. But today, Benfica are on a sticky wicket - both in Portugal and outside …
