United show title credentials by going top of the Premier League

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have gone top of the Premier League with 17 games played and this, I can daresay was not envisaged by many folks at this stage of the season, even amongst Man United fans. They beat Burnley 1 nil at Turf Moor in their outstanding match on Tuesday night through a goal by Paul Pogba and this pushed them to the summit of the Premier League table. The Red Devils started the season on an average note with a terrible form at home in the Premier League while they were ruthless away from home. However, in recent months they've found a solution to the poor form at Old Trafford and have won 4 and drawn 1 of the last 5 games at home. Their away form remains flawless with 7 wins and 1 draw in 8 games and has no doubt contributed to their current position at the t...

Man United and PSG eye Romain Faivre

Man United and Paris Saint-Germain are eying Brest midfielder Romain Faivre after his improved and impressive performances in Ligue 1 this season. The 22-year-old joined Brest from Monaco in July 2020 in a deal worth £400,000 after failing to impress at Stade Louis II. The business was a shrewd one from the point of view of his current club and is paying off. Romain Faivre has made 19 appearances for Brest in Ligue 1 with 4 goals to his name thus far. He has caught the eye of big clubs with his performances this season and has also been called up to represent France at the Under-21 level where he has garnered 4 caps and scored 2 goals. Faivre plays as a left-winger and can also play on both flanks. He has also been deployed as a forward occasionally this season. According to...

Former coach outlines weaknesses of Man United’s new boy

Manchester United's new boy Amad Diallo has been asked to bulk up and improve his heading if he's to establish himself as a star at Manchester United. The 18-year-old's former coach Denis Cerlini is of this opinion. Diallo moved from Atalanta to Manchester United in the January transfer window in a deal worth £37million and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is excited about the youngster's arrival. It can be recalled that the Red Devils were eager to sign Jadon Sancho in the summer transfer window but Joel Glazer deemed the England international too expensive and asked Ed Woodward not to meet Dortmund's £108million valuation of the player. The Red Devils decided to look elsewhere and agreed a fee with Atalanta for Diallo. Solskjaer is impressed with the signing but his former coach Cerlini has...

Keane – Fernandes must do more in the big games

Bruno Fernandes has been bossing the middle of the park for the Red Devils under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer since he arrived from Sporting Lisbon last season. The Portugal international has been compared to talismanic former player Eric Cantona due to his ability to inspire the team to victory. However, he was on the low as Man United were eliminated from the EFL Cup semifinal stage after a 2 nil loss to city rivals Manchester City on Wednesday night. Former United player Roy Keane has now called on the Portuguese to do more and inspire the team in big games when they come calling. The result on the night ensured that the Citizens reached their fourth straight final courtesy of goals from John Stones and Fernandinho.

Solskjaer – Silverware can convince Pogba to stay

Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed in a chat with ESPN that his squad can also play their part in convincing Paul Pogba to stay put at Old Trafford by proving that they can win trophies. The Frenchman's agent Mino Raiola has publicly stated that his client wants to leave Manchester United next summer or when his current contract runs out in 2022. Solskjaer described Pogba as an ambitious player and stated that he can win trophies with him. The Frenchman has already been linked with the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid. "There's always a demand at Man United to win trophies and the more you win trophies, the more players are going to want to play for us and then there's a higher standard you've got to set yourself," Solskjaer said in an interview with ESPN.

Preview of Man United vs Man City – The fight for derby glory

The first Manchester Derby for the 2020/21 Premier League season comes up this Saturday as Manchester United host Manchester City at Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Pep Guardiola will lock horns against each other on the sidelines again. This derby is coming at a time when both sides can be said to be in form although they've had disappointing moments this season. Therefore, it promises to be a cracking Manchester United vs Manchester City fixture. Manchester City have been favorites on paper in the Manchester Derby in recent times but will be the side seeking revenge in this game having lost both home and away to the Red Devils in the Premier League last season. Just 1 point separates the sides in the Premier League presently and the game looks evenly poised. Regardless, t...

United have already lost more home games this season than they did last season

I made a post yesterday stating that Manchester United players must understand that beating PSG away from home doesn't automatically translate to a win for them when the Parisiens come visiting, and this was eventually the case. Thomas Tuchel and his men did themselves a lot of good and enhanced their chances of making it to the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League round of 16 by beating the Red Devils 3:1 at Old Trafford on Friday night. The Red Devils have been far from impressive at Old Trafford this season as the venue is gradually becoming a successful hunting ground for sides who know what they are about on the field of play. Yesterday's result saw the Red Devils overtake an unwanted record as PSG got the win via a brace by Neymar and one goal by Marquinhos. The Red Devils' only go...

PSG under pressure but must take the game to United

Manchester United have finally gotten their first Premier League home win of the season. They will be looking to consolidate on their home form with a win against Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League and this will see them automatically book a place in the round of 16 with 1 game to spare. It's a wise game to spare too as it will be an away game to RB Leipzig in Germany. Meanwhile, PSG currently sit second in the group and know that a loss at Old Trafford will be disastrous for them. It can be recalled that the Red Devils beat them 2:1 at the Parc des Princes when they met in the first leg but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his men will be wise enough to know that winning away doesn't translate to an easy win at home.

Solskjaer not getting carried away by thrashing of Basaksehir

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not getting carried away by Manchester United's 4:1 victory over Istanbul Basaksehir which enhanced their chances of making it to the UEFA Champions League round of 16. The Red Devils have already beaten Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig and are three points clear at the top of Group H. They lost on the last matchday against the Turkish outfit but redeemed themselves at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. The Red Devils will be sure of a place in the next stage with one point from the next two games, all thanks to the contributions of Bruno Fernandes with a brace, a penalty converted by Marcus Rashford, and a goal by Daniel James after coming on as a sub. A point doesn't seem like much but they'll welcome PSG to Old Trafford next week before traveling to Ger...

Van de Beek – I’ve proven that I can improve Man United

Manchester United new signing Donny van de Beek has stated that his time is coming at Old Trafford. The Netherlands star has not started any game for the Red Devils in the Premier League since he arrived from Eredivisie giants Ajax at the beginning of the season in a deal that could rise to £39 million. The 23-year-old has played in the Premier League for a combined 75 minutes thus far and has 1 goal to his name. He has started twice in the UEFA Champions League and twice in the Carabao Cup this term. He played his part for the Netherlands by scoring in the friendly 1 all draw with Spain on Wednesday. When asked about his situation at Manchester United, he said he was happy and that he has shown the potential to make a positive contribution to the Red Devils. "It sounds cliche...
