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

On Saturday, Premier League football resumes as Manchester United make a short trip to Turf Moor to face a Burnley side suffering a dip in form. After a largely impressive first half of the season, the Lancashire club have struggled to see games through in the Premier League. Sean Dyche's men have yet to win in the last 7 games - losing 3 in the process and although they are seventh in the division, punching way above their weight - …
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 …

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 …
Lukaku and Lingard keep Manchester United in the Chase

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 …
Win at Watford for Manchester United – What next?  

Win at Watford for Manchester United – What next?  

In a week where six points could be an incredible boost ahead of the usually hectic period just on the horizon, Manchester United completed phase one of their operation and quite remarkably so. Not only did they secure three vital points against a decent Watford side away from home, but they went about their business in style and suave. United score four (or more) goals in a game not for the first, second or the third time – but for …
3 Thoughts as Manchester United Set the Pace in the Premier League

3 Thoughts as Manchester United Set the Pace in the Premier League

As the dust settled and final whistle blown, United emerged victorious in another Premier League game, a vital 2-0 win at Old Trafford against the 2015/16 Champions Leicester City. On the whole, United deservedly took home all three points as Mourinho's side improved their points tally to nine, out of nine available - and will go into the international break with confidence as high as it can be. Here are my three thoughts as Mourinho's inspiring substitutions made all the …
Lukaku and Rashford 'could' be United's new Yorke and Cole

Lukaku and Rashford 'could' be United's new Yorke and Cole

Ambitious title, isn't it?  When Lukaku and Rashford started together for the first time at Manchester United, in a fairly historic event - the first Manchester derby held outside of UK and the first time the two sides faced each other after the horrific terrorist/suicide bomber attack in May, there was as much excitement among the United fans as there was respect from both sides, on the pitch and the terraces in Houston, who made it nothing less than a …
