Post-Match Hangover: Manchester United Rout Swansea in Style

Four goals scored, none conceded and 3 more points. Again. It's been as good a start for Manchester United as they have had in not just one year, or five or even fifty - this is the first time the Red Devils have scored eight Premier League/top flight goals or more in the first two games in about 110 years. So it's rather safe to assume that there is something special brewing within this side. Mourinho would call it confidence. …

Swansea City vs Manchester United Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Swansea City welcome top of the league Manchester United to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, where the Swans will look to knock the Red Devils off their perch. Swansea took a point from their first match of the season, but it was hardly a convincing performance. They failed to get a shot on target in 90 minutes and were outshot 29 to four in total.  The Swans now have to find a way to stop the full throttle attack that …

Rampant Rom Runs Riot as Confident United put Four Past Joe Hart

If ‘Philosophy’ was the buzzword for Manchester United under Louis van Gaal – ‘Confidence’ is winning the race under Mourinho so far. From first whistle to the last, the result was never really in doubt – but it’s rather hard to find what has changed from last season when in November – United drew 1-1 against Slaven Bilic’s West Ham despite peppering the goal 17 times and scoring once with a 5% conversion rate. On Sunday however, a very similar …

It is here at last. The curtain rises. Premier League football is back and is about to consume our lives one game at a time for the next nine months.

Mauricio Pochettino had a few things to say a couple of weeks back about other people’s opinions about his club. While his comments in this case were mostly directed towards Antonio Conte, who had suggested that it would not be a ‘tragedy’ if Tottenham failed to win the Premier League next season, one got the sense that he was addressing the vast majority out there who think that the lack of incoming activity at Spurs means that they’ve already fallen …

Chelsea v Burnley Preview - Conte's men begin Title defence

Defending Premier League champions Chelsea will face Burney in their opening fixture of the season at Stamford Bridge, and after Sunday's defeat to Arsenal in the Community Shield, Antonio Conte will expect his side to take all three points and get their campaign off and running in style. Last season the Blues faced Sean Dyche's side in their third game and came away 3-0 winners, which made it three wins in three for the Italian in charge. The Clarets were tipped for relegation but …

Manchester United ended up on the losing side of a cup final for the first time in close to 14 months - after an inspired performance from Real Madrid ensured their fourth Super Cup win and a remarkable second (consecutive times) under Frenchman Zinedine Zidane. Even though the result was always under the control of the Spanish and European champions on a sweltering hot evening in Skopje, thanks to a battle comfortably won in the wide areas, the Red Devils …
