Top Five Manchester United Moments in 2016/17 (Part 1)

Every club has its moments - good and bad, in a football season. Manchester United are not an exception to the rule and while the Premier League campaign was largely uninteresting and uninspiring, there have been some interesting narratives and flash points that have featured across the 62-game slug-fest as Mourinho saw off his first campaign with two trophies (he could argue 3) and Champions League qualification. I would like to share my top five in two parts - this …
Manchester United vs Ajax | Europa League Final Preview

Manchester United vs Ajax | Europa League Final Preview

On May 24th, Ajax and Manchester United will meet at the Friends Arena in Stockholm for the Europa League final. Manchester United essentially have their season riding on this match.  They failed to get into the Champions League places after a bitterly disappointing league campaign saw them finish sixth.  They did win the EFL Cup, but a loss in this match would see this season end as a failure.  Manchester United cannot afford to miss out of the Champions League for …
Win against Palace shows a glimpse of future at Old Trafford

Win against Palace shows a glimpse of future at Old Trafford

Manchester United won their final game of the Premier League at home against Crystal Palace - the sort of team they usually came up short against, over the course of the season, which has played a significant role in derailing their ambitions to at least finish in one of the Champions League positions. The Red Devils have, as a result, finished outside the safety net that is top four for the second successive campaign in a row - and below their …

Manchester United v Crystal Palace Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

As another Premier League season comes to an end, Manchester United host Crystal Palace to play what is the quintessential definition of a dead rubber. Premise  United are guaranteed to finish, yes you guessed it right, 6th in the league, regardless of the outcome of Sunday's football match. The Red Devils have put all the eggs in the Europa League basket and paid the price for a lack of complete focus on the Premier League games which has made a …
Mourinho’s Europa League Gamble Could Prove Expensive for Manchester United

Mourinho’s Europa League Gamble Could Prove Expensive for Manchester United

In the last few days, we have heard some very interesting things from Premier League managers. Pep Guardiola had a “Big Club” gaffe when he said that Barcelona or Bayern would have sacked him for a trophy-less season. Last week, Jurgen Klopp was found wondering why Southampton seemed to have relaxed against Arsenal after giving Liverpool a very tough game. When this was followed by Liverpool thrashing West Ham 4-0 at London Stadium, Arsene Wenger wondered aloud about whether some …
Mourinho's United signings: The good, the bad and the ugly

Mourinho's United signings: The good, the bad and the ugly

It's no secret that Manchester United spent big in the summer in an attempt to recapture the success which had made them one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Jose Mourinho was appointed as manager in May 2016 and he got straight to work, signing Eric Bailly in the hope of improving United's central defence. He followed it up with big-money moves for Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as well as a high-profile signing in Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, Mourinho's four …

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 …

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 …
