Why Zlatan will Deliver the Premier League Title to Man United

There have been a number of sensational summer transfers in the Premier League but few have made a similar impact as Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Manchester United. The tall Swede has adapted to life in the Premier League fairly easily and already he has made a huge impact on the squad.

Goals, Golden Boot and the Race for Europe

2016/17 has been a campaign littered with bright patches of high quality football, plenty of goals and teams in the top seven places going toe to toe in the rat race to win the pot of money that comes with qualifying for the next edition of the Champions League. It should not come as a surprise, given the influx of managerial talent, the new 5.1 billion TV deal, that has brought with it an assemblage of superstar footballers attracted by astronomical wages. …

Mkhitaryan's Growing Influence and Mourinho's Questionable Stance on Martial

Manchester United beat Leicester City for the third time this season - an emphatic and largely comfortable stroll-in-the-park 0-3 victory at the King Power Stadium after goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata. United started with a similar line-up to the one that demolished the champions at Old Trafford back in September, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcos Rojo this time in place of Jesse Lingard and Daley Blind.

Over-Reliance on Ibrahimovic is Hindering Manchester United's Progress

Over-Reliance on Ibrahimovic is Hindering Manchester United's Progress

United drew a game for the eighth time in the Premier League after a difficult and frustrating encounter at the Bet365 stadium on a nippy Saturday afternoon. It was in many ways, the 2016/17 season in a nutshell under Mourinho that Manchester United managed to recover after an early wobble, create more than enough opportunities to win the game, yet somehow only manage to score once, thanks to a world class strike from substitute Wayne Rooney. A record 250th goal …
How Bad was Paul Pogba Vs Liverpool?

How Bad was Paul Pogba Vs Liverpool?

Stats and ratings can be really cruel on players. When a player plays well, he will be made to look quite good through stats and ratings but when he has a bad day, those stats and ratings will make you look like the worst player on the planet. Although the disproportionate emphasis on the negative side is due to perception bias in the minds of the fans, it can feel pretty real for the players too. Ask Emre Can. Or, …

Five Positives From Jose Mourinho's time at United so far

It has been a positive start for Manchester United in 2017, pretty much picking up from where they left off in an impressive December, after winning their 6th Premier League game in a row at the London Stadium - coming through the festive period with maximum points and a bundle of confidence and could now turn the focus on to the cup competitions at least for the next ten days before they lock horns with arch rivals Liverpool at Old …

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

On Boxing Day, Manchester United welcome David Moyes back to Old Trafford as his Sunderland side prepare for a match with vital importance for both teams, but for two totally different reasons. Manchester United have hit a good run of form, after their abysmal start to the season.  Their three straight Premier League wins leave them just four points off the top four.  But after the poor start to the season they had, every point is crucial, especially points available at …
Man United Swept by a Tidal Wave of Optimism under Mourinho

Man United Swept by a Tidal Wave of Optimism under Mourinho

If there is one thing that is absolutely certain with football, it is change. Not long ago were Manchester United facing some serious questions about an identity that was supposedly lost - both on and off the pitch, particularly the reaction to the 4-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge ranged from panicked frenzy to a foregone conclusion that Jose Mourinho's days as a world class manager were coming to a screeching halt. Fast forward to Christmas, United may not have actually climbed …
