Mourinho, Martial and an unbeaten United in pre-season

Two of the biggest and most popular football clubs in the world - Real Madrid and Manchester United, engaged in a friendly bout in the States as a dress rehearsal for the European Super Cup encounter which is scheduled to take place in two weeks for the first piece of silverware of the season. The game ended 1-1 and the Reds somehow stumbled on to a win - through a frankly, comical penalty shootout - where seven out of ten …

Tottenham vs Manchester United Preview | Team News, Key Players & Prediction

On May 14th, Tottenham host Manchester United in the final match at White Hart Lane. Tottenham were hoping to still be alive in the title race by the time this match came around, but their loss to West Ham United last Friday all but ended their chances at the title.  They will still look to give White Hart Lane a good send off with a win over arguably the biggest team in England.  Prior to their loss to West Ham, Spurs …
Manchester United Labour to a Tenth Stalemate at Old Drawfford

Manchester United Labour to a Tenth Stalemate at Old Drawfford

Manchester United played Premier League football at home this Sunday and the most predictable outcome this season - the 1-1 score draw repeated itself once again at the 'Theatre of something definitely not dreams'. If I were to rank the performances in the 10 draws at home under Jose Mourinho and 14 overall - a Premier League record, the drab and almost inevitable nature of Sunday's bore-fest would be the equivalent of Sunderland - soul-less for the most part and …

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

After the dour Manchester derby on Thursday night, both the Manchester clubs face relegation threatened clubs on Sunday. Just like City and United, Middlesbrough and Swansea are in two consecutive positions in the table but at the other end of the table – 19th and 18th. While City go to Riverside stadium on Sunday afternoon, Manchester United host the Swans at noon on Sunday and the fixture congestion that Mourinho has complained about the whole season is now starting to …
Anthony Martial's Emphatic Response Keeps United in the Hunt for Top Four

Anthony Martial's Emphatic Response Keeps United in the Hunt for Top Four

Wasn't that the perfect week in a very long time for Manchester United and Jose Mourinho? Or is it too little too late? Either way, you would struggle to write the script if you tried. Following the trouncing of Chelsea and  a nail-biting finish in Europe, United win a Premier League game without hassle on a weekend for a change, when their rivals for a place in the top four failed to improve on their current points tally. It was …
The Two-Faces of Manchester United this season

The Two-Faces of Manchester United this season

Much like Harvey Dent of the Batman Universe, the chances of Manchester United making it to the top four of the Premier League do fluctuate with an evil randomness that one could associate with it, the probability distribution of guessing the right outcome of a coin toss multiple times in different conditions. Following Sunday, the general consensus is they can still finish in the top four, at least mathematically - by assuming that the Manchester United that turned up at the …

Sunderland Vs Manchester United Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

On Sunday, Jose Mourinho takes his Manchester United team to face their ex-manager David Moyes’ Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Both the teams are perhaps fighting to save their pre-season goals. Sunderland would have hoped to stay up in the league despite their quality issues, while Manchester United would have aimed at least for a top-four finish at the start of the season. It is increasingly likely that both the teams will miss out on these pre-season aims and …
Could Perisic Improve Manchester United?

Could Perisic Improve Manchester United?

One of the few things that is universally accepted by football fans from all backgrounds is the fact that international breaks are painfully boring. And if there is anything that makes them even more tedious to follow than the actual football itself, then it is the truck load of transfer rumours that get discussed across the media to keep the plate spinning. Recently, one of those rumors saw Manchester United linked with a summer transfer of Croatian Attacking Midfielder Ivan Perisic, …
