United Lay the Foundation for Next Season at the Etihad Stadium

Until half-time, everything had panned out just as the doctor ordered. The home side and champions-elect were two goals to the good - the fireworks were being set up as Manchester City were a mere 45 minutes away from winning the Premier League against the eternal enemy in front of their own fans who have waited decades and decades for this moment. And out came a different Manchester United side to the one that went into the tunnel at half-time …

Matic - The Enabler Who Has Hit Form at the Right Time

On Sunday, Manchester United managed to overcome a robust Chelsea side to claim all three points and strengthen their position in the top four ahead of the last leg of the Premier League season. Despite starting the match very much second best to the visitors, the Red Devils steadily grew into the game gaining more control in the final third. And equally steady was Nemanja Matic's performance - as he got better and better with every passing minute, dominating the …

Is The Recent Criticism Of Nemanja Matic justified?

One of the most surprising transfers in the Premier League last summer was Nemanja Matic’s transfer from Chelsea to Manchester United as it is very rare for a player to be allowed to move from one of the biggest clubs in the country to another. Jose Mourinho was clearly a big fan of Matic during his spell with the Blues so when he had the opportunity to land the Serbian to his squad at Old Trafford, he pounced to sign …

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 …

It is the Jose Mourinho derby in West London on Sunday as his current employers make the trip down to South to his once comfortable stomping ground. No matter what happens on Sunday, Mourinho will once again hog the limelight on Sunday as his in-form Manchester United travel to Stamford Bridge to potentially spell an end to Chelsea's aspirations to defend their league title.

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 …

Why Mesut Ozil would be a good signing for Manchester United

Arsenal were left in a vulnerable position during the summer as the club had allowed a number of key players to enter the final year of their contract. Alexis Sanchez has been the focus of a lot of the headlines, but Mesut Ozil is another who has less than 12-months to run on his current deal. There wasn't much speculation about him during the recent transfer window and there was a belief that he would sign a new deal. However, …
