Why A Mkhitaryan & Sanchez Swap Deal Would Benefit All

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has become a central figure in this January transfer window, as reports suggest he holds the key to Alexis Sanchez's future. It had been expected that the Chilean would leave Arsenal for Manchester City. However, Manchester United have jumped ahead of their local rivals in the queue to sign the 29-year-old and hope the offer of a straight swap deal will get a deal completed. Sky Sports report that any possible switch to Old Trafford is hinged on …

Sanchez to Manchester United: What Would He Bring?

Sanchez to Manchester United: What Would He Bring?

'You can never enough world class players at a football club' - goes the saying. It is easy to see why a whole host of teams would want to have a talent like Alexis Sanchez in their ranks. To be able to field a footballer who is always up for a fight on the pitch - to be the leader and take responsibilities in a way he has done at Arsenal could prove vital for any football club, especially at …
Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

The story of Jesse Lingard, a Warrington-born boyhood Manchester United fan going from being the perennial scapegoat that symbolised United's seeming mediocrity to the match-winning hero that the supporters did not quite deserve - is a remarkable one. What the now 24-year old has experienced in the last few weeks is an occupational evolution - paraphrasing Mourinho's words - and for humans that may not have had a Pokemon experience in their lives, that may sound a bit weird. But …
Is The Recent Criticism Of Nemanja Matic justified?

Is The Recent Criticism Of Nemanja Matic justified?

One of the most surprising transfers in the Premier League last summer was Nemanja Matic’s transfer from Chelsea to Manchester United as it is very rare for a player to be allowed to move from one of the biggest clubs in the country to another.

Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

One of the criticisms in a long list that Jose Mourinho has faced throughout his career is his lack of trust in young players. Although in 2017/18 with his continued faith in Marcus Rashford, shrewd management of Anthony Martial and outstanding use of Jesse Lingard (young, in terms of top-flight experience) - the Portuguese is proving them all wrong. And rather quietly so. It has been a weird campaign for the Red Devils, I called this spooky in November and …

Everton v Manchester United Preview: Team News, Stats & Key Men

On the 1st of January 2018, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United will make the trip to Merseyside to face an Everton outfit still getting used to the business of Sam Allardyce. Everton, remarkably, have yet to find their feet in the Premier League this season. However, since the appointment of Allardyce, the results in the blue half of Merseyside have looked reasonably better although that is not saying much given the state they were in before the former England manager took …

Manchester United v Southampton Preview: Team News, Stats & Key Men

As 2017 draws to a close, the Red Devils will be all set to welcome Pellegrino's Southampton in its final Premier League encounter of the calendar year. From the outside, United have had a pretty successful 2017 - winning two trophies, qualifying for the Champions League in the first half to reaching the knock-outs and placed second in the league, albeit 15 points from the summit, in the second half. There is no denying that Manchester United under Mourinho are …
