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

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 […]

Man Utd v Norwich City: Man of the Match

This was Marcus Rashford’s 200th appearance for United and the 22 year old celebrated by scoring twice. The England striker now has 16 goals in his past 20 games for United, together with four assists, 19 goals in the season in total. Marcus must have been dreaming of a hat trick. No United player has […]

United Stroll to Easy Win against Bottom Side Norwich

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 […]

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 […]
