It's been more than 48 hours since Manchester United altered the dynamics of the title race by comprehensively beating runaway leaders Chelsea 2-0 at Old Trafford on a day when simply everything went to plan. Jose Mourinho went with a side that was as unconventional as it has been in his brief time at Old Trafford so far - with the usual suspects Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Michael Carrick and Henrikh Mkhitaryan on the bench and Ashley Young taking the armband off Marouane Fellaini …

The Importance of Fringe Players at Manchester United

Manchester United managed to successfully book themselves a trip to play Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park in the FA Cup after they beat Warren Joyce's Wigan Athletic in the fourth round at Old Trafford.

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.
