Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur | FA Cup Semi Final Preview

It's the big game in Wembley as twelve-time champions Manchester United take on Pochettino Tottenham Hotspur in their temporary backyard for a place in the FA Cup final. It is a silly exercise to boil a season down to the outcome of one game but such has been the year for Manchester United where they fell short of what was expected of them in all the competitions this season.

Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard and Gareth Southgate's Dilemma

If Southgate was looking for a response from Dele Alli - after the midfielder was dropped out of the latest England squad, then he bloody got one on Sunday. Dele Alli has been having a mixed season for Spurs this year. In a rather eventful campaign so far that includes suspensions, diving incidents and the odd viral video or two. His performances have dropped relative to the high standards he had set for himself since stepping in for Spurs as …

Lukaku steps up against former club as United beat Chelsea

For only the second time in the last 15 occasions in all competitions, On Sunday, Manchester United emerged victorious against the Blues of West London. Both of those wins have come under the Portuguese and while United put in arguably their best display of 2016/17 against Chelsea last season, the latest win has come under much more difficult circumstances.

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 …
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.
