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. However, the highflying Premier League side have failed to take full points against Everton and West Ham since then and this has dampened the festive mood around Old Trafford. Even though Manchester City are 10 points clear at the top, many still believe that Manchester United can win the league title this season. If you also think so, then it is a good opportunity to avail the bet9ja promo 2021 and place your bets on the Red Devil...

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...

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...

Man United vs Chelsea – Will the Red Devils get their first home win?

Manchester United will welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford this weekend in what should be an entertaining Premier League fixture. The Red Devils are coming off the back of a 2:1 win against Parsis Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes in the UEFA Champions League while Chelsea played out a barren draw against Sevilla at Stamford Bridge in the same competition. The Red Devils should be the more confident side coming into this game having won their last two games in all competitions, 4:1 away to Newcastle, and the recent defeat of PSG.  Chelsea, on the other hand, gave away a 2 nil lead and eventually settled for a 3 all draw against Southampton at Stamford Bridge in their last Premier League game before the barren UCL draw against Sevilla. This will be Man United's third Premier Lea...

Van der Vaart hails United’s move for Van de Beek

Former Dutch international Rafael van der Vaart has praised Manchester United's swoop for Donny van de Beek and added that the Dutchman is needed at Old Trafford and fully deserves the move to the Premier League as reports have indicated. According to Standard Sport, a £40million deal that will make Van de Beek the first signing under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United this summer is close to completion. Transfer talks between the two clubs progressed steadily and significantly over the weekend. Manchester United have had eyes on the Dutch international for a while and considered making a move during the January transfer window before eventually settling on Sporting Lisbon's Bruno Fernandes. Van de Beek has established himself and carved a niche for himself as one of the ke...

Solbakken – Copenhagen must be perfect against Man United

Danish outfit Copenhagen will be looking to cause a major upset when they face Manchester United in the Quarter-finals of the competition in Cologne on Monday. Manager of the side Stale Solbakken has noted that they need to be perfect to stand any chance of upsetting the Red Devils. They beat Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir in the last 16 to progress to this stage with a 3 nil at home last Wednesday, thanks to goals from Rasmus Falk and Jonas Wind. Regardless, Solbakken acknowledges the quality of the opponents and pointed out that his side must embrace perfection if they are to upset the Red Devils who had lost just once in their last 23 games. "In order to [beat United] we have to play perfect, we need a bit of luck. We maybe need a United that doesn't fire on all cylinders," h...
