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 …
Champions League Group A Showdown: Man United v CSKA Preview

Champions League Group A Showdown: Man United v CSKA Preview

The group stage of the 2017/18 Champions League are approaching the end with teams across the eight groups scrambling to seal their place in the knock-out rounds next calendar year. In group A, Manchester United welcome CSKA Moscow - needing a point to ensure progression to the last 16 - as winners of the group. If you had told me after the dull defeat to Basel on matchday five that Manchester United would go on to win their next three …
Manchester United 2017/18: Weird and Spooky

Manchester United 2017/18: Weird and Spooky

At this moment in time, it is pretty well established that Manchester United have shown progress. When Mourinho took over the reins - precisely the day after United won the FA Cup for a then record equalling 12th time, that had been the immediate objective. However, the long-term aim for a manager of Mourinho's calibre has to show consistent improvement on and off the pitch; to 'Make United Great Again'. Well, if Manchester United are not objectively 'great' yet - …
Swansea City v Manchester United: League Cup Preview

Swansea City v Manchester United: League Cup Preview

This midweek, the League cup (now called Carabao cup) will see the holders Manchester United take a trip down to South Wales to play Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium in the round of 16. This will be United's second trip to Wales this season following an impressive 4-0 win at Swansea in the league in August. The Swans have endured a difficult start to the new season under Paul Clement after remarkably escaping the clutches of relegation last campaign. …
Benfica v Manchester United | Champions League Preview

Benfica v Manchester United | Champions League Preview

In midweek, Manchester United will play their second game on the road as they make the short trip to Lisbon to take on the biggest club side in Portuguese football. United and Benfica have storied histories in this competition with arguably United's 4-1 win against a Eusebio-led Benfica in 1968 - the most memorable, making Manchester United the first English club to win the European Cup. But today, Benfica are on a sticky wicket - both in Portugal and outside …
Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Always highly anticipated, often living up to the hype. Last season, leading into this fixture, Liverpool were absolutely flying. The Red Devils not so much, so Jose Mourinho parked the bus (no surprise there, actually). This season though, its a whole different story. The Media, pundits, analysts, statisticians, commentators( and the referees),  all believe that this is the year that Mourinho will bring United back to the pinnacle of English Football. It would be hard to disagree on current form …
3 Thoughts as Manchester United Set the Pace in the Premier League

3 Thoughts as Manchester United Set the Pace in the Premier League

As the dust settled and final whistle blown, United emerged victorious in another Premier League game, a vital 2-0 win at Old Trafford against the 2015/16 Champions Leicester City. On the whole, United deservedly took home all three points as Mourinho's side improved their points tally to nine, out of nine available - and will go into the international break with confidence as high as it can be. Here are my three thoughts as Mourinho's inspiring substitutions made all the …
Lukaku and Rashford 'could' be United's new Yorke and Cole

Lukaku and Rashford 'could' be United's new Yorke and Cole

Ambitious title, isn't it?  When Lukaku and Rashford started together for the first time at Manchester United, in a fairly historic event - the first Manchester derby held outside of UK and the first time the two sides faced each other after the horrific terrorist/suicide bomber attack in May, there was as much excitement among the United fans as there was respect from both sides, on the pitch and the terraces in Houston, who made it nothing less than a …
