United are favorites while an Emery vs Arsenal war looms at the Emirates

The first leg of the semifinals of the 2020/21 Europa League kicked off in style on Thursday night with the home sides covering themselves in glory. The encounters on the night and the results seemed to give away the side that is favorite to emerge victoriously in this season's Europa League competition and I think it's Manchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his men covered Old Trafford in glory as they thrashed Roma 6:2 to put themselves in good stead for a place in the final. The Red Devils have been very impressive in this competition since they were knocked out from the group stages of the UEFA Champions League. Regardless, I believe their aim should be to replicate such performances in the UCL as the Europa is way below them for a club of their standard. READ: THE BES...

Man United prepare new deal for Bruno Fernandes

I guess only a handful knew about Bruno Fernandes' footballing genius in his days at Sporting CP. However, since his arrival in the Premier League, he has taken the league by storm and continues to impress. Therefore, Manchester United are readying a new offer for the Portuguese star and it is an improved contract according to numerous reports. Fernandes has been a key man at Old Trafford since joining in January 2020 and helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men finish third last season in the Premier League.  He is also playing his part nicely to ensure that they finish in the top 4 this term. It must be noted that only Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has outscored him in the league this season with 17 to  15 goals thus far. The attacking midfielder has also been a creative force for the R...

United stars don’t trust van de Beek, claims Hughes

Man United legend Mark Hughes has stated that the club's players do not trust summer signing Donny van de Beek. The Dutchman who joined from Ajax in a deal worth £40million was handed his 11th start of the season as the Red Devils toiled to progress to the next stage of the FA Cup with a 1 nil victory against West Ham at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. Van de Beek has struggled to shine for the Red Devils this season and has just 1 goal and 1 assist in 25 appearances. This was the case again as he was ineffective against David Moyes' men throughout his stay on the pitch before being replaced by Bruno Fernandes in the 73rd minute. Mark Hughes, in a chat with talkSPORT, made his opinions on the state of the player at the club known: 'You just sense… it looks like they don't trust ...

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 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...

Villa and Spurs on the beat with biggest PL Matchday 4 shockers

No one saw Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur putting six past Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's Manchester United or Dean Smith's Aston Villa putting seven past defending champions Liverpool. However, this was the case in the last two games on Matchday 4 of the 2020/21 Premier League season. This season hasn't been short of goals with lots of goals being scored thus far and shocking upsets being mounted too. Who would have thought that Everton and Aston Villa would be the only two teams with a 100% record at this point in the season? It's still early days but Carlo Ancelotti and Dean Smith deserve some credit for the performance of their teams thus far.

Man United will be a force when the Premier League returns

The Premier League has set a proposed date of June 12 for a possible return to action and we wait to see if it materializes. Regardless, one would wonder how the fans on the red side of Manchester are coping with the lack of action thus far? The Red Devils were one of the sides on the ascendency in the Premier League before action was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. They were starting a put a run together and will be looking forward to continuing the fine form if football returns to England for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

Bruno Fernandes defends teammate Paul Pogba

Bruno Fernandes has defended Man United teammate Paul Pogba adding that critics have forgotten his quality. According to the Portugal international, the France international has been attracting heavy criticism due to the high expectations on him. "We can say in football that people normally forget what you do good when you have a mistake," Fernandes told United's official website. "You can do good for 34 games, and one game you do bad and everyone will remember that. "Paul is coming from a bad moment, because of the situation. When he played also, the club and the team was not good, because the expectations are high for Paul as he is a top player and Manchester United pay a lot for him, and expectations are a lot for him.

Solskjaer pleased with Fernandes after confrontation with Guardiola

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was pleased with Bruno Fernandes' character during the Manchester Derby on Sunday despite the player's brief confrontation with Man City boss Pep Guardiola. Fernandes played his part in a 2 nil win against their city rivals by assisting Anthony Martial for the opener with a quick free-kick. He appeared to delight the Old Trafford faithful the more when he confronted Guardiola. Man United were preparing for a throw-in when Guardiola threw the ball away and the pair engaged in a heated conversation. The Portuguese appeared to 'shush' Guardiola and the gesture seemed to ask the City boss to relax before play restarted. The footage of the incident has since gone viral on social media and Solskjaer has revealed that he was pleased with the at...
