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

As the Christmas period is fast approaching, Manchester United are set to host AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday night - under the lights at Old Trafford. A disappointing derby defeat was made even worse given the reports of post match bust ups for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United who now find themselves a whopping 11 points behind their neighbours at the summit. Not only were United beaten comprehensively for the first time since September 2016 at home - but there cannot …

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: So near yet so far?

Manchester United, at the time of writing, are running low on momentum - momentum which I argued was the buzzword under Mourinho in 2017/18, was almost willingly lost at Anfield in a draw that was devoid of everything the Red Devils were in the first two months of the campaign. Mourinho paid the price at last for snapping a series of positive and attacking displays - trading off all the fearlessness the young forward line spearheaded by Lukaku, Rashford and …

Manchester United won another game of football, on Saturday at Old Trafford by a scoreline which is all too familiar now - after witnessing it for the sixth time in all competitions in eleven competitive games of the season so far. Jose Mourinho's side started the game on the front foot like they have, on a fair few occasions this season, scoring inside three minutes of the first half (Remember the 4th minute opener against Everton? I do too.), thanks …

Can Martial fill the void of Paul Pogba at Manchester United?

Manchester United, having made a habit of scoring four goals in a football match, managed to repeat the feat - this time in chilly Russia against a CSKA Moscow side who are usually formidable at home, particularly in the Champions League. It was a result that put a bit of daylight between United and the rest of the teams in that group - almost easing the pressure off of their shoulders, with a relatively straight-forward path now laying ahead of …

Two sides that enjoyed important opening round victories - CSKA Moscow and Manchester United will face each other this Wednesday, on a typically cold night in the Russian capital. CSKA Moscow have started their European campaign on a hugely positive note with a smash and grab win in Lisbon and will now count on their usually solid form at home - to keep the momentum alive. The Russian side, came from behind, thanks to Vitinho's neatly converted spot kick followed …

Mourinho, Martial and an unbeaten United in pre-season

Two of the biggest and most popular football clubs in the world - Real Madrid and Manchester United, engaged in a friendly bout in the States as a dress rehearsal for the European Super Cup encounter which is scheduled to take place in two weeks for the first piece of silverware of the season. The game ended 1-1 and the Reds somehow stumbled on to a win - through a frankly, comical penalty shootout - where seven out of ten …

On May 14th, Tottenham host Manchester United in the final match at White Hart Lane. Tottenham were hoping to still be alive in the title race by the time this match came around, but their loss to West Ham United last Friday all but ended their chances at the title.  They will still look to give White Hart Lane a good send off with a win over arguably the biggest team in England.  Prior to their loss to West Ham, Spurs …
Manchester United Labour to a Tenth Stalemate at Old Drawfford

Manchester United Labour to a Tenth Stalemate at Old Drawfford

Manchester United played Premier League football at home this Sunday and the most predictable outcome this season - the 1-1 score draw repeated itself once again at the 'Theatre of something definitely not dreams'. If I were to rank the performances in the 10 draws at home under Jose Mourinho and 14 overall - a Premier League record, the drab and almost inevitable nature of Sunday's bore-fest would be the equivalent of Sunderland - soul-less for the most part and …
