Under-Par United Still Too Good for Villa

aston villa man utd

1. Manchester United were not at their best against Aston Villa at Villa Park but they still managed to register a comfortable win. Another three goals scored and an important clean sheet were a couple of positives at the end of the match, and they should have scored more. Nevertheless, the team did not perform […]

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

greenwood brighton

Its incomprehensible how all five Premier League meetings played before this match, between Brighton and Man Utd have been won by the home side with Brighton winning 100 per cent of the time. United could not risk losing any points, as victory for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side was necessary to leapfrog Wolves into fifth place in […]

Man Utd vs Sheffield United: Man of the Match

United played their first home game in over three months,  when Scott McTominay’s strike from distance had then sealed a deserved 2-0 victory for the Reds in the Manchester derby. Before the start, the Blades were only two points behind United in the Premier League table after losing 3-0 away to Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon and the […]

Man Utd v Man City – Man of the Match – Manchester is Red!

So once again the bookmakers got it all wrong. How could United, playing at home, be 4.5 to 1 outsiders to beat City, when City had already lost twice against United this season, losing in the Premier League and League Cup? Was it was because United had lost their last three home games against Manchester […]

Manchester is RED – United at the Double!

1. Martial’s goal for United is every manager’s dream. A move straight from the training ground. When you have a technical maestro like Fernandes playing for your team, then a manager can prepare those tactical free kicks. Bruno’s pass from the dead ball was sublime. He literally put it on a plate for Martial, although […]

United Move to 5th Place After Beating the Hornets at Old Trafford

1. United produced a good laboured performance against a Watford side that made it difficult for the United players with their pressing high up the field, particularly in the first half. Indeed, United had a couple of scary moments in the first 15 minutes, as they couldn’t get out with the ball from a packed […]

Chelsea v Man Utd – Man of the Match

Not even the bookies had given United much of a chance. In fact those of us who put 10 euro on a United win came out smiling with 43 euro. Maybe Manchester United were not seen as favorites as this was surprisingly a first-ever double over Chelsea since the start of the Premier League. This […]

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 […]

Man Utd v Wolves – Man of the Match

So it’s the third clean sheet in a row, all credit to our defence and to keeper David De Gea, who incidentally is now only the third goalkeeper – after 40 years – to have played 300 league games for United. However United’s failure to score means that not only are they still six points […]

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 […]
