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

Manchester United have a great opportunity to strengthen their position in the top four as they host bottom-placed Crystal Palace. They have been excellent at the beginning of the new season and will see this as a game that they must win if they are to challenge for the title.

Fellaini inspires Manchester United to a winning start in the Champions League

Fellaini inspires Manchester United to a winning start in the Champions League

Manchester United grabbed all 3 points on a comfortable night against FC Basel in their opening game of the group stages in the Champions League. Bouncing back from the draw in midweek against Stoke, there were plenty of positives to glean from United's win on Tuesday despite the obvious glaring negative - which stood out like a sore thumb, whose impact may be much harsher than a sore thumb. So here's my thoughts touching on some of the talking points …
It's time for Luke Shaw to justify Mourinho's trust in him

It's time for Luke Shaw to justify Mourinho's trust in him

Manchester United are off to a flyer this season - with two 4-0 wins on the spin in the opening two games. The squad has got the strength in depth - in most areas of the pitch and United are primed to push hard for their first league title in five years in Mourinho's historically successful second season at a new club.

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 …
