Manchester United 2021-22: What to expect from the Red Devils

Manchester United announced that Ole Gunnar Solskjær has signed a new deal that will keep him at the club till 2024. One could interpret this to mean a sense of contentment and calmness in the club but nothing could be farther from the truth. For all the buzz and hype around the current Manchester United team under the Norwegian, they are yet to win a trophy and despite finishing second in the EPL last season, a lot of work still needs to be done if they are to really compete with favorites like Manchester City and Liverpool. It also doesn’t help that the club is yet to win the EPL or UCL since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson despite spending more than £1bn in that time frame and the club will be looking to fix that at any cost.

Fernandes proved he’s the most key player at United

One player who lighted up the Premier League in the 2020/21 season was Bruno Fernandes bur he appears to be an unsung hero. The Portuguese player is one of the few midfielders who have blossomed in an attacking role at Manchester United in the last decade, and this calls for some credit on his part. Bruno Fernandes can play comfortably in the middle of the park or on the right and left flanks of midfield and he has hardly fallen short when needed by the Red Devils. His performances since his arrival at Old Trafford are a pointer that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men would be in attacking chaos without his contribution. Some decent midfielders who play similar roles have come to Manchester United and failed to make a mark even after impressing significantly in their previous clubs. CH...

Guardiola and Solskjaer refuse to talk about Kane

Harry Kane's future at Tottenham Hotspur continues to be in doubt but the managers of the top clubs linked with him ahead of the summer transfer window chose to avoid transfer talks concerning the Three Lions captain. The Englishman has reportedly told Tottenham that he wants to leave after being frustrated with the club's lack of major progress in recent seasons. The likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Manchester United are the English clubs who may be able to afford the striker in the summer and have been heavily linked with a move for him. However, when Pep Guardiola was asked about Kane during the post-match interview after his side's Premier League 3:2 loss away to Brighton at the Amex on Tuesday, he replied: "Next question. He’s a Tottenham Hotspur player" Manchester U...

Solskjaer urges Man United fans to be civilized

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged Manchester United fans to be more civilized with their protests after the recent demonstration against the club's American owners was marred by violence, resulting in the postponement of the Premier League clash against Liverpool. Whilst acting as the club's spokesman on Wednesday amid the silence of the Glazer family regarding the incident, the Norwegian manager defended the right of the supporters to protest. He also admitted that there was a need for better dialogue between the fans and the leadership of the club to rebuild their strained relationship. However, Solskjaer pointed out that things went too far outside Old Trafford as police with batons clashed with fans, as some of them breached the biosecure perimeter of the stadium and got on the p...

Memorable Manchester United comebacks in history 

It's no more news that Manchester United have been impressive in the Premier League this season. The Red Devils are currently second on the table, having secured 46 points from 24 matches so far. The Red Devils recently claimed an emphatic victory against Southampton, with the Manchester side destroying their opponents by an unbelievable 9-0 score-line.

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...
