Matija Nastasic vs Jonny Evans | Stats Comparison

With 9 weeks to go before the end of the Premier League season, it looks an absolute certainty that Manchester United will have wrapped up a 20th title. It would take an even more dramatic twist than last season’s last minute drama for Manchester City to retain the title and for Betfred to be embarrassed for a 3rd time, by paying out early on a Man United title win. However, this season has been anything but dramatic at the top. …

Anderson's Redemption | A look at the Manchester United midfielder

Anderson's career at Manchester United has been inconsistent. He made just ten appearances last season, less than half of the twenty four he made after joining the club in 2007, and has struggled to hold down a first team place. He arrived as a tricky flair player, slight in build but fast, agile and keen to take players on. Today he plays a more conservative role. Anderson has been shaped into a powerful, intelligent passing midfielder. It's different to his …
No Need for Nani? | Statistical Comparison with Ashley Young

No Need for Nani? | Statistical Comparison with Ashley Young

When Nani joined Manchester United in the summer of 2007, many viewed this as the signing that would push the Red Devils over the top. Manchester United were coming off a season in which they had won the Premier League, beating runners up Chelsea by 6 points. However, with their previous title occurring in the 2002/2003 season, Sir Alex desperately wanted to strengthen his team for long term success. With one of the world’s best players in Cristiano Ronaldo and …
