United beat Chelsea For The Third Time This Season

1. United have generally played well and obtained results this season against top ten opposition. This was United’s third win against Chelsea this season and two of those came at Stamford Bridge, a stadium which for a long time going back to the peak of the Ferguson’s teams we seemed unable to perforate.  Credit to […]

United unable to break down a well-drilled Wolves side at Old Trafford

man utd v wolves

1. When you are against a side like Wolves which have played with the same system for two and a half years, have the players to play that system and have been so successful at it, you cannot be as disorganised and disjointed as United were in that first half of this match. Looking at […]

Man City v Man Utd – Man of the Match

So near yet so far. Wembley Stadium that is. United faced an uphill battle to reach the Carabao Cup showpiece at Wembley in March after their chastening 3-1 home defeat to Pep Guardiola’s men in the semi-final first leg three weeks ago. Having so many injuries to top players certainly did not help. Paul Pogba and Scott […]

United Stunned by Burnley at Home

1. These post-match articles have become really difficult. I am generally a very positive person but it’s hard to find any positives from this match, from a United perspective.  I got a lot of stick from fellow supporters after the article post-Liverpool match at the weekend, because I highlighted a will to battle it out […]

Liverpool v Man Utd – Man of the Match

liverpool man utd

As they say, its goals that win matches. United had a bright start and even had the majority of possession, but then yielded to a soft goal from a corner, even if Captain Harry Maguire appeared to be fouled allowing Virgil a free header. This was the eighth time in the Premier League this season […]

United lose at Anfield despite a spirited performance

1. This is normally one of the two fixtures that I always look forward to in a season. Liverpool home and away. This season, Liverpool away was the fixture I dreaded because of the form they are in and conscious of the fact that this United team is work in progress. We lost but at […]

Wolves failed to win the first tie at Molineux due to a VAR decision deciding that the ball had glanced off the arm of Doherty before finding itself in the net. Yesterday, at Old Trafford, United once again were favoured by VAR when a Wolves goal was ruled out after once again as it had […]

1. These are a big 10 days for United’s season, make no mistake. Norwich at home is followed by Wolves in FA Cup also at Old Trafford, Liverpool away and City away in the return leg of the Carabao Cup. Certainly, they started well against the Canaries. United played well and it could have been […]

‘The worst we have played this season.’ So stated United boss Solskjaer after this first-leg loss at Old Trafford. In truth this match revealed the serious shortcomings of this United side, and City could have had many more before the break, Raheem Sterling being the main culprit. This even with Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus […]

Arsenal v Manchester United: Man of the Match

‘Two steps forward, one step backwards’. So reported the TV commentator at the end of United’s match with Arsenal. Although United had won their first league game of the year in each of the last four consecutive years, no team had won more Premier League games on New Year’s Day than Arsenal. This win now […]
