As the Christmas period is fast approaching, Manchester United are set to host AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday night - under the lights at Old Trafford. A disappointing derby defeat was made even worse given the reports of post match bust ups for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United who now find themselves a whopping 11 points behind their neighbours at the summit.

Manchester United v Manchester City: Preview, Stats & Key Men

The 175th Manchester derby is upon us and it could just be the most important fixture these two sides have had in the Premier League since December 2012. Manchester United have been phenomenal at home. There's been question marks early on as to whether the Portuguese could ever really imprint his style on Man United but with a 40 game unbeaten streak at home that stretches back to September 2016 (a club record), Mourinho has quite evidently answered it in …
The battle at the bottom of the Premier League

The battle at the bottom of the Premier League

This weekend's Manchester derby will obviously take the headlines, with many sharing the opinion that should the blue side of the city take the three points on Sunday, the title race could be as good as over. It isn't the only derby this weekend, as Everton travel to Anfield in the Merseyside derby, to face a currently-rampant Liverpool. Those two games, however, are surely going to overshadow three fixtures that are of a paramount importance at the other end of …

The Emergence of Demarai Gray under Claude Puel

Since taking charge of Leicester City at the end of October which resulted in a comfortable 3-0 win over Everton, Claude Puel has picked up 11 points out of a possible 18 as the Foxes currently find themselves in 9th position in the league. Puel has made various changes since taking charge that has led to his relative success early on, one of which has been his faith in 21-year-old Demarai Gray. Following his arrival during the January transfer window …
Why Jesse Lingard is crucial for Manchester United over the Christmas period

Why Jesse Lingard is crucial for Manchester United over the Christmas period

Manchester United have a lot of attacking talent in their squad, but the player to make the headlines in recent weeks hasn’t been one of the usual names. Jesse Lingard has emerged as a good supporting act in recent seasons. He produces important goals and provides healthy competition for the attacking places in the first-team. Few have seen him as a potential starter for United, but he has scored three goals and contributed one assist in his last two matches. …
Victor Lindelof is going to shape Manchester United's December

Victor Lindelof is going to shape Manchester United's December

Sometimes, all we need in life is a little push. In Victor Lindelof's case, it was a crunching sliding tackle. When Manchester United ended the transfer window with three new signings in the bag, the excitement and relief was palpable. This was Manchester United utilising a window to properly address their long-term weaknesses in the first team. A solid defensive midfielder to fill the void that Roy Keane's acrimonious departure had left. An out-and-out number 9 to boost the goal …

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

It's one of the great rivalries in British football - as Arsenal welcome Manchester United - and with the managers on the touch-line who themselves share an animosity that has come to define the Premier League in the last fifteen years, the expectations around this game have rarely been higher. Arsenal have firmly got themselves back in the mix. The Gunners will go into this game as one of the most in-form sides in the league - with five wins …
