How Bad was Paul Pogba Vs Liverpool?

Stats and ratings can be really cruel on players. When a player plays well, he will be made to look quite good through stats and ratings but when he has a bad day, those stats and ratings will make you look like the worst player on the planet. Although the disproportionate emphasis on the negative side is due to perception bias in the minds of the fans, it can feel pretty real for the players too. Ask Emre Can. Or, …
Ander Herrera - Analysing Manchester United's complete midfielder

Ander Herrera - Analysing Manchester United's complete midfielder

Manchester United may be in 6th position, but they have showed signs of being a really good team in recent weeks. The general consensus is that they have the quality to finish in the top four and if they maintain their recent performance level, it should only be a matter of time before they start climbing the Premier League table. Jose Mourinho has found his strongest starting eleven and one key player for him this season has been Ander Herrera. …
Manchester United v Hull City Preview: EFL Cup Semi-Final

Manchester United v Hull City Preview: EFL Cup Semi-Final

Manchester United will host Hull City in the first of two legs, at home, to book a place in the League Cup final at Wembley, where the Red Devils have been quite successful in 2016 winning the FA Cup and the Community Shield. United are on a great run, their best winning streak (eight on the spin) since they were crowned champions and there is a real upturn in confidence and belief. They go into this game on the back …
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. After an unorthodox and patched up side that did the business against Swansea, Mourinho fielded a very strong eleven from the squad that was available to him with the midfield particularly consisting of Michael Carrick, Ander …
Ander Herrera - Should he be a regular starter for Manchester United?

Ander Herrera - Should he be a regular starter for Manchester United?

Manchester United were excellent in their convincing win over the champions Leicester City and Jose Mourinho was vindicated in his decision to drop Wayne Rooney from the starting eleven. The side were less predictable and the build-up play was a lot quicker than it has been in recent matches. Ander Herrera came back into the starting eleven and was one of the best performers on Saturday. He was asked to sit deep, providing a shield for the defence. This deeper …
Why Mourinho is dead right about Schweinsteiger

Why Mourinho is dead right about Schweinsteiger

Former German International Bastian Schweinsteiger has been the lone subject of controversy in what has been an abundantly positive transfer window for Manchester United. The 32-year old has been reportedly told that he was not in the plans of Jose Mourinho - which has culminated into the German veteran training with the club's under-23 squad since the Portuguese took over the club in July. This has quickly become the most divisive topic among Man United fans as to whether or …
How Manchester United Could Line Up Under Mourinho

How Manchester United Could Line Up Under Mourinho

With Jose Mourinho keen on giving Manchester United the very best – case in point: Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan – it becomes arguable as to where Rooney will find himself in the new squad. There is no need to illustrate further on how Ibrahimovic is the ideal number 9 as he has already proven it multiple times. Interestingly, Anthony Martial’s suitability was also displayed last season and with the emergence of Marcus Rashford, Rooney’s importance in the team looks …
Top Four Hopes Fade Away as United held to Another Draw at Home

Top Four Hopes Fade Away as United held to Another Draw at Home

It was a game of four quarters rather than two halves. United played the better football in the first ad final quarter while champions-elect Leicester City edging the other two. The visitors came to Old Trafford knowing a win would secure an historic title and one of world's most unbelievable sporting stories in recent memory. But Ranieri's men will have been the happier manager to return home with a point meaning only a win for Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge …
