Benfica v Manchester United | Champions League Preview

In midweek, Manchester United will play their second game on the road as they make the short trip to Lisbon to take on the biggest club side in Portuguese football. United and Benfica have storied histories in this competition with arguably United's 4-1 win against a Eusebio-led Benfica in 1968 - the most memorable, making Manchester United the first English club to win the European Cup. But today, Benfica are on a sticky wicket - both in Portugal and outside …

Liverpool vs Manchester United: Time for Klopp to make a statement

Liverpool host Manchester United at Anfield on Saturday in the fixture of the Premier League weekend, with supporters who are keen to stream the game live able to get 15% off with Now TV.

Liverpool: 'It's The Hope That Kills You'

Liverpool: 'It's The Hope That Kills You'

I've been trying to understand why it is that fellow Liverpool supporters are in a state of constant anxiety and despondency in the current season. It really has gone to a whole new level of low. As a friend of mine often tells me : "When it comes to Liverpool, It's the hope that kills you" He's right, but this season its gone that little bit extra. That last bit of hope has somehow already been kicked out of us …

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

Liverpool and Manchester United will resume their rivalry on Saturday with United on a roll and Liverpool in a rut. Going into the last international break Liverpool were on a roll after just demolishing Arsenal 4-0.  While that break may have been a curse, this one was much more of a blessing.  They have only won one of their matches in all competitions since the last international break and they'll be hoping this break reverses their fortunes back the other …
The Undervalued Role Of Fernandinho At Manchester City

The Undervalued Role Of Fernandinho At Manchester City

Manchester City face Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium this Saturday, looking for their sixth-straight Premier League win. Consecutive thrashings of Liverpool, Watford and Crystal Palace were followed by their biggest statement of intent so far; a dominant 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Pep Guardiola has no shortage of stars at his disposal and his attacking players have rightly garnered much attention in recent weeks.  Yet, sitting just behind this abundance of flair is Fernandinho, probably the first name on Guardiola's team-sheet every week. Instant Impact …
Liverpool and Manchester United face off at a strange time in the EPL

Liverpool and Manchester United face off at a strange time in the EPL

It's that time of the year again. Liverpool at Anfield - it does not come much bigger than that, for Manchester United in the Premier League. The media love it, the fans dread it but look forward to it at the same time, it's a fixture that is steeped in history and a fierce rivalry that has almost defined two of the most culturally significant cities in the North of England. With that comes a suspicion, that has always existed …
Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Always highly anticipated, often living up to the hype. Last season, leading into this fixture, Liverpool were absolutely flying. The Red Devils not so much, so Jose Mourinho parked the bus (no surprise there, actually). This season though, its a whole different story. The Media, pundits, analysts, statisticians, commentators( and the referees),  all believe that this is the year that Mourinho will bring United back to the pinnacle of English Football. It would be hard to disagree on current form …

Decoding Manchester United's Start to the Season - What Can They Achieve in 2017/18?

The Premier League has taken another of those brief breaks, which provides us all with a window to reflect on how different clubs have fared so far in the opening seven games of the new season. As is always the case, some clubs have enjoyed great starts, some sketchy and unsure while a few other clubs have downright disappointed going into this second international break in October.
