Mkhitaryan is key to Mourinho's Man United Evolution

Manchester United have been breaking records this season under Mourinho, but a lot of them, worryingly dubious.

Is Phil Jones Mourinho's Most Ideal Defender at Manchester United?

Phil Jones usually comes across as an interesting footballer and an incredibly boring human being. Interesting footballer because there are not many players at Manchester United that divide opinion as much as this 24-year old center-half does, purely in footballing terms.
