The Two-Faces of Manchester United this season

The Two-Faces of Manchester United this season

Much like Harvey Dent of the Batman Universe, the chances of Manchester United making it to the top four of the Premier League do fluctuate with an evil randomness that one could associate with it, the probability distribution of guessing the right outcome of a coin toss multiple times in different conditions. Following Sunday, the general consensus is they can still finish in the top four, at least mathematically - by assuming that the Manchester United that turned up at the …

Sunderland Vs Manchester United Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

On Sunday, Jose Mourinho takes his Manchester United team to face their ex-manager David Moyes’ Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Both the teams are perhaps fighting to save their pre-season goals. Sunderland would have hoped to stay up in the league despite their quality issues, while Manchester United would have aimed at least for a top-four finish at the start of the season. It is increasingly likely that both the teams will miss out on these pre-season aims and …

Why Mourinho Should Seek a Fabregas Reunion

On Sunday, Jose Mourinho kept himself some good company by becoming the third manager to win the EFL cup four times, after the great Brian Clough and Sir Alex Ferguson. Incidentally, it was also United's 42nd major accolade in English football, officially making them the most successful club in the land. The Portuguese has instilled a winning culture at United and he deserves a lot of credit for that, given the two failed regimes before him still fresh in memory. With only …

Come Sunday, Manchester United and Southampton will lock horns to see who gets their hands on the first major trophy on offer in this campaign.

Mata, Makeshift Full-Backs & Man United Marching On

Manchester United have made it to the last 16 of the Europa League, thanks to a 1-0 win (4-0 agg) at St.Etienne and will therefore remain in the hat for the draw which is set to take place in Nyon on the 24th of February. Mourinho stood by his word as he fielded a eleven that was not far from his best - with the front three of Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata. Paul Pogba also played the whole ninety …

Manchester United vs Watford Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Manchester United host Watford on Saturday and it is important they return to winning ways at Old Trafford as they have dropped too many points at home this season. Their main problem is that they aren't killing matches off and they have collected too many draws. The Premier League is tight at the top this season and draws against teams outside of the top six are no good, especially at home. This is why Manchester United aren't currently in the …

After the hectic hustle-bustle of  December and January, the Premier League now enters relatively more placid times of February and March. There are only three game weeks in February, the first of which beckons us over the next two days. While the marquee London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea will be the center of attraction on Saturday, on Sunday two of only three managers who have won the Premier League and are currently managing in the league, go head to …
