Manchester United v Burnley Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

This boxing day Manchester United will welcome high-flying Burnley to Old Trafford as the two sides face each other for the first time in 2017/18 after 19 games. United are 13 points below their neighbours in the league table at the moment which suggests that barring an almighty collapse even by Manchester City's standards, there is little United could do to stop the league title heading towards the blue half of the city. But what they could do is not …

Why Phil Neville is Wrong about Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Before going on to do the objectively right thing and look at why Phil Neville was wrong about the now seemingly exiled attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan at Manchester United, it is vital to evaluate how the 27-year old has fared so far at Old Trafford in 2017/18. Mkhitaryan started the season - arguably the brightest, picking up from where he had left off in the season before scoring vital away goals in the Europa League run, culminating in a night …

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

This weekend will see another frantic round of fixtures where Claude Puel's Leicester City will aim to pile more misery on Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. The Foxes have enjoyed an upturn in form since the Frenchman took over from Craig Shakespeare. Leicester have won 5 of the last 10 games, drawing 2 and losing 3 - they sit comfortably 8th in the league - only five points separating the 2015/16 Champions and Tottenham Hotspur. However, they will go into this …
Five potential transfers in the January window

Five potential transfers in the January window

January brings resolutions and new starts – and it’s no different for the top-flight clubs who are desperate to change their fortunes. Which sides need some more goals to avoid a nervy relegation battle? Whose defence is leaking like a rusty sieve? It’s time to splash the cash and plug those gaps… but how? With many big names from the Premier League such as Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Yaya Toure, all having contracts expiring in the summer, some big …

Lukaku and Lingard keep Manchester United in the Chase

Out of all the ways that a football match could be won, Mourinho's Manchester United characteristically picked out the most tedious and nerve-wracking one out there at the Hawthorns on Sunday evening. Against a West Bromwich Albion side who have yet to win a Premier League encounter since August, United started the game, probably rightly so, in second gear. After some deliberation in the middle of the park, the visitors scored off what now seems like a routine well-mastered attempt …

West Brom vs Manchester United Preview | Key Men, Team News & Stats

Manchester United have a trip to West Brom this weekend as they attempt to get their title challenge back on track. It looks unlikely that they can keep up with Manchester City, let alone better them, but Jose Mourinho will not want his players to throw in the towel. Their local rivals' match against Tottenham will be played on the day before and if they drop points, it will give United an even greater incentive to pick up three points …

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

As the Christmas period is fast approaching, Manchester United are set to host AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday night - under the lights at Old Trafford. A disappointing derby defeat was made even worse given the reports of post match bust ups for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United who now find themselves a whopping 11 points behind their neighbours at the summit. Not only were United beaten comprehensively for the first time since September 2016 at home - but there cannot …

Manchester United v Manchester City: Preview, Stats & Key Men

The 175th Manchester derby is upon us and it could just be the most important fixture these two sides have had in the Premier League since December 2012. Manchester United have been phenomenal at home. There's been question marks early on as to whether the Portuguese could ever really imprint his style on Man United but with a 40 game unbeaten streak at home that stretches back to September 2016 (a club record), Mourinho has quite evidently answered it in …
