Arsenal v West Ham Preview | Team News & Key Players

While Arsenal's focus may be on the Europa League at this point, the Gunners will come out with as much will to win as is humanly possible after the announcement that Arsene Wenger will step down at the end of the season. The emotions will be high in the stands and in the players. The Europa League is, rightfully, the main focus for the rest of the season, but every last game under Wenger will be a must win. West …

Newcastle United v Arsenal Preview | Team News, Key Players & Prediction

Newcastle have come alive at just the right time. The Toon have won three matches in a row moving them into the top half of the table and 10 points off relegation with six matches to play. This hot streak has comfortably pushed Rafa Benitez's men out of the relegation picture and into the safety of mid-table. At this point, Benitez's side can relax, but they would love a win against Arsenal to push them over the 40 point mark. …

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 …
Where do Aubameyang and Mkhi leave Arsenal?

Where do Aubameyang and Mkhi leave Arsenal?

Once it was realised Alexis Sanchez would not be an Arsenal player by the end of the window, it was all doom and gloom and once it became clear Man Utd was the destination, it seemed to be even worse. To lose their best player to Jose Mourinho of all people seemed to just make the situation worse. But to replace him with Henrikh Mkhitaryan now was probably the best deal they were ever going to get, considering Sanchez' attitude …
Is Henrikh Mkhitaryan good enough for Manchester United?

Is Henrikh Mkhitaryan good enough for Manchester United?

The man signed from Borussia Dortmund last season soon became a fans favourite, hailed as Manchester United's 'midfield Armenian, but the 28-year-old has begun to divide opinion. When you look past the unbelievable scorpion kick goal last season and his admittedly crucial goal in the Europa League final, the contribution of Mkhitaryan in big games, in particular, has to be put under the microscope. The United number-22 started the season all guns blazing, recording five assists in a record-breaking three …
Can Martial fill the void of Paul Pogba at Manchester United?

Can Martial fill the void of Paul Pogba at Manchester United?

Manchester United, having made a habit of scoring four goals in a football match, managed to repeat the feat - this time in chilly Russia against a CSKA Moscow side who are usually formidable at home, particularly in the Champions League. It was a result that put a bit of daylight between United and the rest of the teams in that group - almost easing the pressure off of their shoulders, with a relatively straight-forward path now laying ahead of …
Rampant Rom Runs Riot as Confident United put Four Past Joe Hart

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 …
Manchester United: 2017/18 Season Preview

Manchester United: 2017/18 Season Preview

Manchester United have had an eye-catching summer as they have made three high-profile signings to date and hope to make more before the end of the season. In his first season in charge, Jose Mourinho managed to win two trophies and has taken the club back into the Champions League, but an improvement is needed in the league if he is to secure his own position. United finished 6th last season and didn't come close to a title challenge. A …
