Why A Mkhitaryan & Sanchez Swap Deal Would Benefit All

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has become a central figure in this January transfer window, as reports suggest he holds the key to Alexis Sanchez's future. It had been expected that the Chilean would leave Arsenal for Manchester City. However, Manchester United have jumped ahead of their local rivals in the queue to sign the 29-year-old and hope the offer of a straight swap deal will get a deal completed. Sky Sports report that any possible switch to Old Trafford is hinged on …

On Monday Night, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United will host a struggling and manager-less Stoke City side at Old Trafford - with 3 points on the line. Football had taken a back seat at Man United - with all the noise around the apparent pursuit of Alexis Sanchez, a player who Jose Mourinho described as "phenomenal" in his pre-match press conference.

Sanchez to Manchester United: What Would He Bring?

Sanchez to Manchester United: What Would He Bring?

'You can never enough world class players at a football club' - goes the saying. It is easy to see why a whole host of teams would want to have a talent like Alexis Sanchez in their ranks. To be able to field a footballer who is always up for a fight on the pitch - to be the leader and take responsibilities in a way he has done at Arsenal could prove vital for any football club, especially at …
Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

The story of Jesse Lingard, a Warrington-born boyhood Manchester United fan going from being the perennial scapegoat that symbolised United's seeming mediocrity to the match-winning hero that the supporters did not quite deserve - is a remarkable one. What the now 24-year old has experienced in the last few weeks is an occupational evolution - paraphrasing Mourinho's words - and for humans that may not have had a Pokemon experience in their lives, that may sound a bit weird. But …
Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

One of the criticisms in a long list that Jose Mourinho has faced throughout his career is his lack of trust in young players. Although in 2017/18 with his continued faith in Marcus Rashford, shrewd management of Anthony Martial and outstanding use of Jesse Lingard (young, in terms of top-flight experience) - the Portuguese is proving them all wrong. And rather quietly so. It has been a weird campaign for the Red Devils, I called this spooky in November and …

Leicester City v Manchester United Preview: Team News, Stats & Key Men

This weekend will see another frantic round of fixtures where Claude Puel's Leicester City will aim to pile more misery on Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. The Foxes have enjoyed an upturn in form since the Frenchman took over from Craig Shakespeare. Leicester have won 5 of the last 10 games, drawing 2 and losing 3 - they sit comfortably 8th in the league - only five points separating the 2015/16 Champions and Tottenham Hotspur. However, they will go into this …
Lukaku and Lingard keep Manchester United in the Chase

Lukaku and Lingard keep Manchester United in the Chase

Out of all the ways that a football match could be won, Mourinho's Manchester United characteristically picked out the most tedious and nerve-wracking one out there at the Hawthorns on Sunday evening. Against a West Bromwich Albion side who have yet to win a Premier League encounter since August, United started the game, probably rightly so, in second gear. After some deliberation in the middle of the park, the visitors scored off what now seems like a routine well-mastered attempt …

Bournemouth Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

When Liverpool last visited the Vitality Stadium – a little more than a year ago – they were flying high. They were strong title contenders and were scoring goals for fun. This season, however, as they prepare for a visit to Vitality on Sunday evening, it would be fair to say that the Reds have had multiple disappointments already. Jurgen Klopp has had to recalibrate targets and rotation plans as his team has gathered six fewer points than they did …
