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 …

Manchester United v Benfica Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

The Champions League is back and it feels like ages since United claimed victory in Portugal on a night when things were not exactly straight-forward, thanks to an unforced error from the 18-year old goalkeeper Mile Svilar. On Tuesday night, for the Red Devils, the pathway to the Round of 16 is clear.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: So near yet so far?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: So near yet so far?

Manchester United, at the time of writing, are running low on momentum - momentum which I argued was the buzzword under Mourinho in 2017/18, was almost willingly lost at Anfield in a draw that was devoid of everything the Red Devils were in the first two months of the campaign. Mourinho paid the price at last for snapping a series of positive and attacking displays - trading off all the fearlessness the young forward line spearheaded by Lukaku, Rashford and …

As is always the case, some clubs have enjoyed great starts, some sketchy and unsure while a few other clubs have downright disappointed going into this second international break in October.

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, …
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 …
