Manchester United welcome unbeaten Chelsea to Old Trafford and Louis van Gaal’s side need a win in order to close the gap at the top of the table. Both clubs will be looking to capitalise on Manchester City’s loss at West Ham United yesterday, however – Chelsea are sitting comfortably at the top of the table with 22 points, whilst United are in eight position with ten points less. Jose Mourinho has only lost once at Old Trafford, which came in the 2005/06 season following those disastrous matches against Middlesborough (the 4-1 defeat that promoted Roy Keane’s reaction in the now infamous MUTV interview) and in the Champions League against Lille (United were eliminated at the group stage). Darren Fletcher scored the winner that day and Louis van Gaal will hoping for more of the same come 4pm this afternoon. United of course have looked very leaky in defence and the backline was all over the place for WBA’s second goal last Monday. There are doubts that joint Premier League top goalscorer Diego C ...
Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has paid tribute to former teammate Park Ji-sung. Park played his last match in professional football at the weekend. The South Korean icon received a hero's farewell during Friday's K League Classic All-Star Game and scored his last-ever goal before predictably winning the Man of the Match award following an entertaining 6-6 draw at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. “I remember him as a big-game player,” Fletcher told manutd.com. “When the big games came around, against the likes of Arsenal and the big Champions League sides, he always stepped up to the plate. He was a great team-mate and a real humble lad in the dressing room. He just went about his job diligently. “For such a big star in Asia – and he really is a superstar there – he never acted that way at all. He was always professional and a great player. I’d say he was an underrated player, too. People talk about his work-rate but technically he was very good as well. “He could use his left an ...

Darren Fletcher believes the arrival of Juan Mata has been the shining light in an otherwise disappointing season for Manchester United. The Spaniard, who swapped Chelsea for Old Trafford in January, netted twice as United cruised to a 4-0 victory over Newcastle on Saturday. Despite their win at St James' Park at the weekend, defending champions United remain a lowly sixth in the Premier League standings. However, Fletcher believes the addition of playmaker Mata stands them in great stead for next season, even if David Moyes will be without his star signing on Wednesday as they travel to Germany for a Champions League quarter-final second leg against holders Bayern Munich. "There is so much quality in that dressing room and players are going out there with a point to prove," said Fletcher in the Daily Star. "Of course, it's a shame he can't play against Bayern, but we always knew that. "It's been a disappointing season but he has come in and been fantastic." Fletcher is convinced the £37.1million signing ...
Bayern Munich vs Manchester United: Team News and Injury Updates Manchester United travel to Germany on Wednesday night with the knowledge they need to score at least once to advance to the next stage of the Champions League. United showed they were no pushovers in the 1-1 draw between themselves and Bayern Munich last week, but they will need an even bigger performance to topple the European Champions on their own patch. They will, however, be boosted by the news that Wayne Rooney trained on Tuesday after bruising his toe, with the forward expected to start the game. Marouane Fellaini and Rafael missed the session and both remain doubts for the match, with Robin Van Persie definitely out after picking up an injury against Olympiakos in the last round. In Fellaini's absence, manager David Moyes could opt for Phil Jones in midfield to offer the necessary energy to close Bayern's creative players down, though Darren Fletcher could be in contention to partner Michael Carrick instead. Juan Mata is ineligible ...

Midfielder Tom Cleverley has been struggling with a calf injury and missed training on Tuesday. Striker Danny Welbeck was also absent from United's final training session ahead of the Group A tie.

Can it really be a full decade since we first saw Darren Fletcher in a United shirt, arms pumping with characteristic high elbows and leggy lope carrying him to all four corners of the pitch? Well, it is. And although his playing career is on hold for now, in commemoration of this milestone here are 10 matches that define Darren's career. Fletch, we salute you... 12.03.03 United 1-1 Basel, Champions League Fletch’s senior debut and he was in from the start in the Champions League – no League Cup run-out or late sub appearance for the prodigious 19-year-old.

Manchester United - Chelsea Preview: Both sides looking to bounce back from European defeats- The Red Devils will be out for blood after their controversial Champions League exit, while the Blues go to Old Trafford having not scored an FA Cup goal at the ground since 1963 Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to make a number of changes to the side that lost to Real Madrid on Tuesday, with Wayne Rooney – surprisingly dropped against Los Blancos – expected to come back into the starting XI. Don't Miss Chris Smalling has started all of Manchester United’s FA Cup matches this campaign, and could partner Jonny Evans in the centre of defence. Antonio Valencia, Anderson and, hat-trick hero against Norwich, Shinji Kagawa should also all return to the side.

United changes a certainty Sir Alex Ferguson is certain to make changes for Manchester United's Boxing Day encounter with Newcastle.United's failure to beat Swansea saw their advantage in the Premier League title race trimmed to four points. Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez, Chris Smalling and Darren Fletcher will be amongst those hoping to be involved, while Rafael needs to shrug off the hamstring injury that kept him out of the Liberty Stadium encounter. Jonny Evans remains wary of Newcastle's African jewels despite the Magpies' woeful recent form.Alan Pardew's men secured only their second win in 12 games with an unconvincing display against QPR on Saturday. Whereas last season they were scoring goals for fun, this time around it has been far harder, and rather than challenging for a Champions League spot, they have been nervously looking over their shoulders at the drop zone.But Evans does not feel that is a reason for Manchester United to take it easy at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

"Alex Ferguson will be without Anderson, Antonio Valencia and Nani through injury. Tom Cleverley is almost certainly out with the calf injury he sustained during the Champions League defeat to Cluj. With Shinji Kagawa also still unfit, Ferg uson has Phil Jones, Ryan Giggs or Paul Scholes to start alongside Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher. It is a far-from-ideal preparation for United as they seek to avenge the misery inflicted upon them in the league by City last season."

Fletcher the father figure Darren Fletcher is preparing to help Manchester United’s youngsters through what’s bound to be a memorable experience in Istanbul on Tuesday night. At 28, the Scotland captain is far and away the Reds' most experienced player in the 21-man squad Sir Alex Ferguson selected for Tuesday’s Champions League Group H tie against Galatasaray. With United already assured of knockout phase football, the manager left the likes of Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Robin Van Persie in Manchester, opting instead to travel to Turkey with a squad laced with youth. Indeed, of the 21 Reds in Istanbul, only Fletcher, Michael Carrick and Anderson have started more than 20 European games for United. And Fletcher, who made his Reds debut in a Champions League match aged just 19, says he’ll gladly play father figure to the younger lads. “I’m 28 and one of the most senior players in the squad,” he told MUTV. “But it’s a role I’m used to with Sco ...

The Scotland international, who is away with Craig Levein's squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers, has made great strides in coming back to football after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Although figuring in both Champions League ties and the Capital One Cup win over Newcastle, the last time the 28-year-old was on the pitch in the league was back in November 2011 when he came on as a substitute at Swansea's Liberty Stadium. "It's what it's all about," he told MUTV. "Getting as many games as possible. "I know the manager has got such a big squad now, especially in the midfield area, and there is a lot of competition for places. I have to be patient and wait for my chances but, hopefully, one will come around sooner rather than later. "I think my general fitness is fine, it's just match fitness - the sharpness, reaction times, things in your head ...
