Man of the Match: Tottenham vs Manchester United (Premier League)

A win that was so immensely satisfying not just because United played superbly, particularly in the second half, or that United came from behind to win, but mostly due to the satisfaction of having won following the gross injustice of that disallowed first half  goal. The benchmark had been set earlier when Rashford was elbowed in the face in the penalty […]

Man of the Match: Manchester United vs Brighton (Premier League)

Manchester United have now won each of their last six meetings with Brighton in all competitions.

Poor United Play Out A Drab Goalless Draw At Selhurst Park

I am lost for words at the end of a very poor performance by United against Crystal Palace away from home in this mid-week fixture. On a misty night in London – a manager of another club would have certainly made the conditions as an excuse – it was almost incredible the lack of cohesion […]

Man of the Match: Chelsea vs Man Utd (Premier League)

United were seeking to win four consecutive matches at the Bridge in all competitions, United having won the last three away games against Chelsea, with those victories coming in the Emirates FA Cup in February 2019, the Carabao Cup in October 2019 and the Premier League in February 2020. No mean task as since the […]
