Juan Mata vs Aston Villa | Player Performance Analysis

Juan Mata vs Aston Villa | Player Performance Analysis

After a convincing derby defeat in mid-week the pressure at Old Trafford was reaching boiling and spurred the infamous airplane banner protest during the first few minutes of the game. It meant Manchester United needed someone to step up and Juan Mata put in his best performance since his move in January. Moving to Manchester United to play in his favoured (and best) position behind the striker, Mata encountered the same problem with Rooney and Van Persie’s places in the …
The Cleverley Debate | Compared to Henderson, Wilshere, Noble, Carrick & Huddlestone

The Cleverley Debate | Compared to Henderson, Wilshere, Noble, Carrick & Huddlestone

A lot has been written in a negative sense about Tom Cleverley in these past few months, much of which in my opinion has been very unjust. Tom Cleverley is a very, very good footballer who Roy Hodgson, his national team manager, likes for good reason. To have people starting and then over 10,000 people signing a petition to not have him playing for his national team is not only pathetic but also a damning reflection on the mindset of …

With Manchester United losing their last two consecutive Premier league games, both at home, an away trip turned out to be a relief as the red devils claimed a 3-0 win at Villa Park, an important 3 points closing the gap between them and spurs to only 2 points.

Manchester United: Season So Far | Stats Analysis

The struggles of Manchester United have been well documented this season, so it’s no surprise the champions have obtained fewer points against the teams they’ve faced this season compared to the last campaign. In total the team have dropped 8 points, most notably against Liverpool, Manchester City and West Brom, and only improved on the results against Swansea (a) and Chelsea (h).

Premier League Prediction Model: Week 11 Forecasts | United Vs Arsenal

Round one of the results prediction model went ok, so here we go with my numbers for Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th November. I've been making a few small changes to the model based on last week - nothing too drastic, but it's encountering some new problems with shortages of data that I didn't have last season. I first started building these models in the second half of last season so there were always at least 20 games worth of …

Jonny Evans and Phil Jones are starting to show the fans that they are the future of this great football club.
