Lukaku's Lack of Goals at Manchester United - What's the issue?

As Manchester United lost their second game in the last three - at St. James' Park, after a performance that was as non-cohesive as it can be, got them what they deserved, which is to say, nothing. Even looking past Jose Mourinho's strangely dubious record at Newcastle, the visitors' lack of conviction and attacking plan against a side fighting to stay in the league with their previous win coming in October, was quite alarming. It was not the first time …

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

On Sunday, Jose Mourinho will take Manchester United to a stadium he has never won at, in all these years managing in the Premier League. Newcastle United are 16th in the league at this point in time - with 25 points on board, only a point away from 19th placed Huddersfield Town. In fact, ten teams in the bottom half are all so tightly packed that every point between now and the end of the season is unimaginably crucial for …

Where do Aubameyang and Mkhi leave Arsenal?

Once it was realised Alexis Sanchez would not be an Arsenal player by the end of the window, it was all doom and gloom and once it became clear Man Utd was the destination, it seemed to be even worse. To lose their best player to Jose Mourinho of all people seemed to just make the situation worse. But to replace him with Henrikh Mkhitaryan now was probably the best deal they were ever going to get, considering Sanchez' attitude …

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United Preview: Team News, Stats & Key Men

After the adventure of the FA Cup in Somerset, Manchester United will travel to Wembley to face an in-form Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. Spurs have been in fine fettle for weeks now in the Premier League winning 4 out of the last 6 games scoring 16 and conceding just 4 - accruing 14 points in the process. Yet, Spurs have rarely threatened the top two sides for weeks now and are sat fifth in the league, albeit only …
Veteran Michael Carrick is still Crucial to Manchester United

Veteran Michael Carrick is still Crucial to Manchester United

He has still got it, Michael Carrick. Though not at the grandest of stages to announce a return to playing capacity - at Huish Park against Fourth Division side Yeovil Town, in front of a capacity crowd - Michael Carrick showed Jose Mourinho and the Manchester United fans, why he is still vital to the Red Devils who have now added another potent weapon to their arsenal in Alexis Sanchez. It is a shame that he is 36 years old …
What does the arrival of Sanchez mean for Romelu Lukaku?

What does the arrival of Sanchez mean for Romelu Lukaku?

Manchester United have had an eventful January so far. Three wins in three in the Premier League without conceding a goal, FA cup progression and most importantly - the signing of Alexis Sanchez - a massive statement of intent from the club in January which has raised eyebrows for various reasons, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan going the opposite way. United now have in the ranks one of the few true world-class attacking footballers with the ability to turn a game on …
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 …

West Brom vs Manchester United Preview | Key Men, Team News & Stats

Manchester United have a trip to West Brom this weekend as they attempt to get their title challenge back on track. It looks unlikely that they can keep up with Manchester City, let alone better them, but Jose Mourinho will not want his players to throw in the towel. Their local rivals' match against Tottenham will be played on the day before and if they drop points, it will give United an even greater incentive to pick up three points …
