Jose Mourinho is entering into his third season as the manager at Old Trafford and there will be pressure on him to perform. Meanwhile, Claude Puel needs to start well after a disappointing second half of the season.

Lindelof's World Cup offers Hope for Manchester United

The World Cup in Russia, against odds, has been objectively fascinating to watch: with a myriad twists and turns - goals and heartbreaks - altogether packed in two and a half engrossing weeks of football. As we head to the final leg of the tournament - with only four games left, it is fair to say that the England National Team and English clubs, in general, have a lot to be positive about themselves and the promising future that lies …

Yeovil Town v Manchester United FA Cup Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

As the world's oldest cup competition resumes this Saturday, Manchester United will continue their journey on Friday - with a trip to Yeovil on the cards to face League Two's Yeovil Town.

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 …

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.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: So near yet so far?

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 …
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 …
