Man Utd 2 Liverpool 1 | Opta Stats Report

After the plain ridiculousness of handshakegate, there was actually a football match played on Saturday at Old Trafford. The game wasn’t the greatest spectacle for a worldwide TV audience. In fact, the first half may as well not have happened. With the exception of a good chance for Paul Scholes, and Suarez further endearing himself to everyone congregated at OT that didn’t wear Dalglish’s tinted specs, there really wasn’t anything to shout about. United got off to a flyer in …

Welbeck adds ammo to United's arsenal

Welbeck adds ammo to United's arsenal

At the start of this season, no one could have anticipated the impact that Danny Welbeck would have on United’s season. After been brought back from a reasonably successful loan spell at Man Utd reserves (Sunderland) he was expected to slot into the fourth or even fifth spot in the striking pecking order at Old Trafford. Rooney, Hernandez, Berbatov and probably Owen were all above him, and as with Macheda a lot of United fans were expecting to see Welbeck …

Arsenal 1 MUFC 2 | Wenger Outwitted

Arsenal succumbed to their third defeat in a row in the Premiership, despite equalising through Robin Van Persie, as United rather comfortably overcame their opponents. Sir Alex Ferguson lined his team up in the counter-attacking style he normally deploys against Arsenal. Their exploitation of the wings paid dividends and Ferguson's quick reactions to any changes Wenger made ensured his team came away with the victory. On Arsenal's right flank, John Djourou had a nightmare of a game against the tricky …

Man Utd 3 Bolton 0 | Match Stats Report

  Man Utd took another step towards retaining the Premier League title as they stopped their two match losing streak.  While the headlines will go to the return of Paul Scholes, scoring the opener and recording 69' of pitch time before being replaced by Ryan Giggs, Scholes was not the most influential player on the pitch. At least, not according to the numbers. Between the stick, Anders Lindegaard may have regained his form and composure after allowing three against Newcastle; he …
