Five key questions ahead of Liverpool vs. Manchester United, by
Mark Clattenburg TO REFEREE CHELSEA VS Manchester City CLASH Mark Clattenburg has been selected to referee Saturday's Barclays Premier League title showdown between Chelsea and Manchester City. Clattenburg is considered one of England's top referees but has a history of controversy with both clubs, who sit first and second ahead of the clash at Stamford Bridge. City boss Manuel Pellegrini claimed Clattenburg cost his team victory during a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in September and the Chilean also criticised decisions made by the same official in his side's 3-2 defeat to Liverpool last season. Chelsea also have history with Clattenburg, who was falsely accused of racially abusing Blues midfielder John Obi Mikel during a league match with Manchester United in October 2012. Clattenburg is one of two English officials in UEFA's elite category along with Martin Atkinson. He was put in charge of last season's Europa League semi- final second leg between Benfica and Juventus and then the Super Cup final between Rea ...
ManUtd.com's match report from Manchester United's Barclays Premier League match against QPR on 17 January 2015.
Manager Louis Van Gaal provides the latest team news for Manchester United's Barclays Premier League clash with QPR at Loftus Road on Saturday 17 January 2015.

Louis Van Gaal discusses his dialogue with Radamel Falcao following the striker's omission from Manchester United's Barclays Premier League defeat to Southampton - but naturally declines to reveal his line-up to face QPR at Loftus Road.
Manchester United Team news ahead of the trip to the Loftus Road this weekend!!! INJURY UPDATE!!! -Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie is a doubt for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash against QPR. -The Dutchman was withdrawn during the defeat to Southampton with an ankle injury but Louis Van Gaal has told MUTV this is only a minor problem, suggesting that his countryman could still be involved at Loftus Road. "It's not worse. Only Van Persie is maybe injured but it is a minor injury. I don't think it's a great problem." Louis Van Gaal. -Ashley Young remains in the treatment room with a hamstring strain which is likely to keep him out for a few more weeks. THE PREVIOUS MEETING!! -We meet again: United are unbeaten against QPR since New Year's Day 1992 and earlier this season the Reds strolled to a 4-0 win at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and maiden United strikes for Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria. .
::: Match Review - Manchester united v Southampton ::: United 0 Southampton 1 Manchester United suffered a first defeat in 12 games and surrendered third place in the Barclays Premier League after Southampton secured a shock 1-0 win at Old Trafford with Dusan Tadic's solitary strike. The Reds controlled large chunks of the game but ultimately struggled to break down an organised Saints team that has increasingly realistic hopes of earning Champions League qualification this season. Louis Van Gaal made seven changes to the XI that started against Yeovil Town in the Fa Cup third round, notably with Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind both returning from injury while Luke Shaw also lined up against his former club for the first time since joining the Reds in the summer. Midweek signing Victor Valdes took his place on the bench, although Colombian striker Radamel Falcao was absent from the matchday squad. The visitors started brightly and almost broke the deadlock in the first minute when England international Nat ...
Video: Van Gaal explains Falcao absence Louis Van Gaal has revealed why Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao was not involved in Sunday’s disappointing Barclays Premier League defeat to Southampton at Old Trafford. The Colombian had started the Reds’ last five matches in all competitions but was left out of the squad to face Saints. But as Van Gaal explained in his post-match press conference, the striker was omitted due to various selection dilemmas and not injury. Thanks to our colleagues at MUTV, you can now watch the manager's full response to queries about Falcao's absence by watching the video above.
kata orang, betul ke Mohd Azri Atan? If Barclays Premier League was a class-room, then:- 1. Arsenal is a boy who works hard through out the year but fails to succeed. 2. Manchester City is a spoilt child who purchases all the expensive books but is never interested in reading them. 3. Liverpool is a child who is very much proud of the academic achievements of his grand father. 4. *Manchester United is a boy who just performs in the final exams and tops the class.* 5. Finally, Chelsea is a boy who fails and puts the blame of failure on his teachers and then his family finds a new teacher for him every year.

Chelsea must cure their away day Blues or the title will be Manchester City's again (By Neil Ashton for MailOnline) There are some results that you look at on paper and they are decent enough. A draw at Manchester City, a point at Manchester United and a 1-1 at Southampton, given their fine run under Ronald Koeman, are decent returns for a club with Chelsea’s ambitions. Defeat at White Hart Lane, when they were fully aware Manchester City had just beaten Sunderland at the Etihad, is not. This, it has to be said, was an absolute mauling. Tottenham’s bracing victory here will be remembered as the day the Barclays Premier League title swung back in favour of the defending champions. The quicker we cut to the chase of January 31, when Chelsea play Manuel Pellegrini’s team at Stamford Bridge, the better. Here at White Hart Lane we were supposed to witness the great recovery, the Chelsea backlash after the perceived injustice at St Mary’s last Sunday. Instead they are searching for answers to their incr ...
New Year’s Day couldn’t have been any better for a football fan as all 20 teams from the Barclays Premier League were in action on 1January 2014. Manchester United were up against Stoke City while Liverpool entertained Leicester City. Southampton awaited Arsenal and Manchester City were in action against Sunderland. But the big clash of the day was at White Hart Lane between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. The day commenced at the Britannia Stadium where the Red Devils and Stoke played out a 1-1 draw. Radamel Falcao netted the equaliser after Ryan Shawcross had put the Potters into the lead within two first-half minutes. Peter Crouch struck the upright and at the end both sides had to settle for a point. Manchester City looked to return to winning ways and they were made to toil hard for the three points at the Etihad Stadium. Following a goalless first-half Yaya Toure and Stevan Jovetic scored to give the defending champions a two-goal advantage. But Sunderland managed to draw level thanks to two form ...

Van Gaal frustrated by Tottenham draw Louis Van Gaalrued missed chances and two lost points after his Manchester United side played out an entertaining but frustrating goalless draw with Tottenham Hotspurat White Hart Lane on Sunday. Juan Mata, Robin Van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Ashley Young all went close to scoring in the Barclays Premier League fixture but could not beat Spurs goalkeeper Hugh Lloris, who was tellingly given the Man of the Match award by broadcasters BT Sport. “We lost two points I think,” reflected Van Gaal. “We had the best performance of Manchester United’s season in the first half, we could have scored four or five goals I think, but we didn’t reward ourselves. In the second half, it was more of a struggle than football. “You could see [then] that the players could not recover in two days. It was an ugly match. In the first half we played very well, but when you do not score goals then you cannot win. I said already before the matches, it is the culture of England [to ...
EPL ROUND UP Chelsea maintained top spot on the Barclays Premier League table thanks to a 2-0 home win over West Ham United on Boxing Day. The Blues recorded their 14th victory of the campaign to stay three points clear of second-placed Manchester City thanks to goals from John Terry and Diego Costa either side of the break. Captain Terry netted his second goal in as many matches when he slotted home Costa’s knockdown header in the 32nd minute before the Spanish striker grabbed his 13th of the season in the 61st minute when finishing across goal with his left foot after a dazzling run. Reigning champions City kept up pace with Chelsea by putting in a commanding performance at West Bromwich Albion to win 3-1. First-half goals from Fernando (first for the club), Yaya Toure (penalty) and David Silva gave Manuel Pellegrini’s side the advantage before a first Premier League goal for record signing Brown Ideye pulled one back for the Baggies late. Manchester United stayed third on the table, 10 points behin ...

GameCast: Arsenal VS Manchester United Arsenal forward Theo Walcott is a major doubt for today's Barclays Premier League clash against Manchester United. Walcott has a groin problem while Former United striker Danny Welbeck (hamstring) will also be assessed along with Alexis Sanchez, who was involved in a lot of travelling while on international duty with Chile. Captain Mikel Arteta has recovered from a hamstring problem while France frontman Olivier Giroud is back in contention after three months out with a broken leg. Boss Arsene Wenger is confident when Giroud and Walcott are fully match fit, the Arsenal squad will have even more firepower at their disposal to add to the impressive form of Sanchez and Welbeck. "Giroud and Arteta are both available. It is just a question of how ready they are, but they are available," said Wenger . "He (Giroud) is three or four weeks ahead of schedule. Originally we planned to have him back for competition at the beginning of next year, so he is one month ahead." ...
Jordan Henderson insists it is still a privilege for him to train alongside the man he cites as exerting the biggest footballing influence on his career to date - Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard. The two first played together on the Anfield turf during the Reds' 1-1 draw against Manchester United in October 2011 after Henderson took to the field as a substitute just prior to the hour mark in the game. Much has changed since that day, when Henderson forced David De Gea to claw over the crossbar in the final moments as he went within touching distance of securing victory over the Reds' rivals. Henderson reclaimed an England squad berth at the end of his first season with the club before emerging from a stint on the fringes of the team to become a regular during the back end of 2012-13. In the season that followed, he went from strength to strength and grew to be an increasingly vital figure as Liverpool vied for the Barclays Premier League title until the final day of the campaign. Henderson's impressive p ...

Preview: Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Date, time and coverage: Saturday 8 November, 3pm. Scene-setter: United put up a valiant display in Sunday's 1-0 defeat in the Manchester derby, but the cold truth is the Reds have 13 points from 10 Barclays Premier League matches, equalling the club's worst start to a season since 1986. Victory at Old Trafford is therefore essential as Louis Van Gaal's men seek to climb the table. Form guide: United are without a win in three outings after recording consecutive draws against West Bromwich Albion and Chelsea before losing to City at the Etihad Stadium. If you draw confidence from past records then United's is excellent against Crystal Palace, having not lost to the Eagles in the 12 league meetings since a 3-0 defeat at Selhurst Park in May 1991. Meanwhile, Neil Warnock's side were beaten by Sunderland on Monday and have not won in four games. They currently sit 17th in the table, just above the relegation zone, with nine points from 30.

Cristiano Ronaldo has paid Angel Di Maria a huge compliment going into today’s Barclays Premier League clash with Chelsea. The world player of the year believes that Manchester United have finally found the man to fill his boots at Old Trafford. Since United sold Ronaldo to Real Madrid for a then world record £80 million they have the lacked the goals, assists and speed on the counter attack that Ronaldo once offered. But the Portugal ace believes they have acquired this skill set in £59.7 million summer signing Di Maria and he’s excited to see what his former team mate can do in today’s clash with Chelsea. Ronaldo and Di Maria became friends during the four years they spent together at the Santiago Bernabéu, to the extent that Ronaldo pleaded with the Champions League winners not to let him leave the club this summer. Di Maria now wears Ronaldo’s old shirt number at Manchester United and so far he’s produced some incredible performances in the illustrious number seven worn by Bryan Robson, G ...

Carrick eyes Chelsea return Michael Carrick insists he is over his injury "nightmare" and hopes to return to action on Sunday when Manchester United host Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea at Old Trafford. The 33-year-old suffered ankle ligament damage on the same day Louis Van Gaal arrived at the Aon Training Complex in July, forcing him to undergo surgery that has ruled him out for the first-team so far this term. But, having sat on the bench for Monday's 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, Carrick is close to making his much-anticipated comeback and can't wait to get back amongst the action with his team-mates. "It's your worst nightmare as a footballer to be out for so long and this is the longest I have ever been out," the Reds veteran told ManUtd.com. "I have never really had to deal with big injuries before, so this was something new for me. "The timing of the new manager coming in and me getting injured on that first day wasn't ideal, but that is something that I have got ove ...

This weekend was not an exciting one in the Premier League, as last Sunday saw shocks, with Leicester City’s comeback against Manchester United, and then Crystal Palace won at Everton against the odds. Week six of the Barclays Premier League saw Manchester United go back to winning ways, but they had to win the game the hard way after Wayne Rooney’s sending off. Chelsea continued their title winning form by beating Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge. Manchester City were part of a six goal thriller against Hull City and lost a two goal lead, but they bounced back in the second half to take all three points at the KC Stadium. There were two derby games on Saturday which both ended in draws, as Phil Jagielka scored a stunner to earn a point for Everton at Liverpool. Then Tottenham Hotspur had to work hard to earn a draw at Arsenal. Man Utd were two-nil up after twenty minutes, and strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie scored. Rooney went from hero to zero in the second half, with the score at 2-1 to Ma ...

Asked this afternoon if he had to say no to Van Gaal, Guardiola nodded and said: 'They [United] didn't have enough money.
Dzeko: Chelsea Could Take Away Title Eden Dzeko has suggested Chelsea will post the biggest threat to Manchester City’s Barclays Premier League crown, as the Champions look set to defend their title in a competitive season ahead, according to the Mirror. Last season saw City regain supremacy from city rivals Manchester United, who had one of the worst campaigns in their history as a club in the Premier League. Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement and employment of David Moyes did not work, and United crumbled in their own then, losing to several relegation threatened teams. Chelsea were the underdogs, as Jose Mourinho continued to downplay his side’s chances of challenging for the crown. Liverpool were the dark horse in the race, but succumbed to the pressure in the end. This time around, Mourinho is well prepared, and with Diego Costa leading the attack line, Chelsea are set to fire on all cylinders to win the title once again. Fernando Torres has been sent on loan to AC Milan, and legendary striker Didi ...

Giggs defends youth policy after Welbeck sale Ryan Giggs insists Manchester United will never abandon the club’s tradition of developing young players and turning them into first-team stars, despite the recent sale of Danny Welbeck to Barclays Premier League rivals Arsenal. The 23-year-old England international and former Academy graduate swapped Old Trafford for the Emirates Stadium on transfer deadline day with Colombian hotshot Radamel Falcao effectively replacing him in Louis Van Gaal’s squad. While it is always sad to see a local lad moving on, particularly one who has been with the club since he was a child, Giggs has quashed suggestions the Reds have given up on a famed youth policy that allowed him to graduate from the Class of ‘92’. “United will never change,” Giggs explained at Soccerex, an annual conference that has brought more of football’s movers and shakers to Manchester. “The history of the club is to play exciting football, give youngsters a chance and keep to its traditio ...
Manchester United will play against newly promoted Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday 30 August, 2014. Louis Van Gaal heads to Turf Moor in search of his first competitive victory as Manchester United manager. Despite a near perfect pre-season campaign, the Reds have yet to win in the Barclays Premier League and have registered just one point from six. The boss notably rested a number of his stars for the midweek game at MK Dons, who took full advantage to secure a shock 4-0 win in the Capital One Cup second round. Saturday’s opponents, Burnley, have had a disappointing start to life in the top flight, losing 3-1 to Chelsea before going down 1-0 to Swansea City. The Clarets were also knocked out of the League Cup on Tuesday following a 1-0 loss to Sheffield Wednesday. Club-record signing Angel Di Maria could be in line for his debut after completing his transfer from Real Madrid on Tuesday. The Argentinian’s international colleague Marcos Rojo could also take his bow, if he secures a work permit in time ...
Angel Di Maria is set to make his Manchester United debut in Saturday’s Barclays Premier League meeting with Burnley, having already impressed manager Louis Van Gaal in training.
Sunderland v Manchester Utd preview Striker Robin Van Persie is fully fit and available for Manchester United's game at Sunderland on Sunday. Midfielders Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera (all ankle) are out, as is utility man Jesse Lingard, who has a knee injury, but Antonio Valencia has recovered from the leg problem that kept him out of the defeat to Swansea. Defenders Jonny Evans (leg), Luke Shaw (hamstring) and Marcos Rojo (awaiting work permit) are unavailable while doubts remain over right-back Rafael (groin) and striker Danny Welbeck (knee), who has also been told he can leave the club. Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet will welcome defenders Billy Jones and Santiago Vergini back into his squad for Sunday's Barclays Premier League visit of Manchester United. Jones missed the 2-2 draw with former club West Brom last weekend because of a troublesome hamstring, while Vergini is understood to have sat out because of an administrative problem - but both will be available this weekend. ...
Manchester United are prepared to commit as much as £100million to their pursuit of Angel Di Maria as the ailing Barclays Premier League club try to beef up Louis Van Gaal’s squad before the end of the summer Transfer Window. United manager Van Gaal is desperate for world- class additions and has told chief executive Ed Woodward to do all he can to bring winger Di Maria to the club from Real Madrid. It is understood United have told the Argentine that, with performance-based incentives, they will pay him around £200,000 a week. Over a five-year deal that would take United’s investment to £100m when a transfer fee of around £50m is included. United are also interested in Ajax’s Daley Blind, and were getting close to signing defender Marcos Rojo from Sporting Lisbon on Sunday night. The Portuguese club want to take Nani on loan in return, although he is reluctant to agree.

Tom Cleverley says Manchester United are "raring to go" against Swansea as the Reds kick off the new Barclays Premier League season on Saturday. Louis Van Gaal takes charge of his first competitive game as the Swans visit Old Trafford for the day's early start and Cleverley, like the rest of his team-mates, is desperate to begin the campaign with a victory. Winning on the opening day doesn't guarantee a successful season – the Reds won 4-1 at Swansea last term and went on to finish seventh – but Cleverley senses an opportunity to build momentum from the off. "We can't wait to get going against Swansea and look to put right the wrongs from last year," he told ManUtd.com. "This club has always been renowned for bouncing back from sticky patches and that's one of the reasons it's so loved around the world. "We started against Swansea last year but away; this time it's at home and I'm sure the fans will be the same as us: raring to go. It'll be the manager's first competitive game and I'm sure it'll be a ...

Shaw targeting the title Luke Shaw cannot wait to run out at Old Trafford as a Manchester United player for the first time as he targets Barclays Premier League glory with his new club. The 19-year-old is set to face Valencia on Tuesday night in the final fixture before the campaign starts on Saturday against Swansea City. "As a kid, it’s a dream to play at Old Trafford," he told MUTV . "It’s one of the biggest arenas in the world, you would say. "To know it’s going to be my home ground is something special. I can’t wait to get my first touch on the pitch just to relish it." When asked if everybody must be feeling positive after a fine pre-season, Shaw insisted regaining the title is on the players' agenda after a disappointing campaign last time out. "You have got to be positive and, for me personally, I have come here to win trophies," he asserted. "It is something everyone wants, not just me. Everyone in that dressing-room is looking to do it. "We want to win the Premier League. Obviously there ...

Football | Barclays Premier League ‘Vermaelen may leave Arsenal’ 01 August 2014, 18:04 Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hinted on Friday that defender Thomas Vermaelen could leave the Premier League club before the end of the Transfer Window. The 28-year-old Belgian has been linked with a move to Manchester United. "At the moment Thomas Vermaelen is here. He is injured at the moment with a short-term injury. It could happen, yes it's a possibility that he goes. If he goes we have to replace him because he's an important player in our squad," Wenger told a news conference.

is like Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League and is Real Madrid in La Liga 💁💁
Manager Jose Mourinho is confident Chelsea have assembled a squad capable of winning the Barclays Premier League next season - but also knows any of the title hopefuls could also easily end up fifth. The Blues have moved quickly in the summer transfer market, bringing in Cesc Fabregas before the World Cup, and have since added fellow Spaniard Diego Costa and also defender Filipe Luis from Atletico Madrid, as well as promising 19-year-old midfielder Mario Pasalic from Hajduk Split. Mourinho, however, understands all too well each of the other leading sides have also strengthened their armoury, while Manchester United are expected to recover and challenge again under new manager Luis Van Gaal. "Last year, if you had asked me in July, I would never have said Man United would be outside the top four. This season I will tell you one (to miss out) and I have a big percentage of making a mistake," said Mourinho, who is an ambassador and pundit for BT Sport next season and took part in a Q&A session at BT Tower i ...

Toni Kroos could still end up in the Barclays Premier League after claims Chelsea are ready to join the bidding if he becomes a free agent next year. A proposed move to Manchester United may have collapsed, after new manager Louis Van Gaal decided against pursuing their interest, but the Bayern Munich midfielder remains at loggerheads with club bosses over renewing a contract that is entering its final 12 months. Even an attempt to end conjecture he may be Old Trafford- bound left the door open for other clubs to start drawing up wage offers to try and tempt him away this time next year. ‘There has been a lot of speculation, but I won’t be going to Manchester United,’ he said. ‘I can tell you for sure I will be playing for Bayern Munich next season.’ According to sources in Munich, his refusal to commit himself to Bayern beyond the one remaining season on his current contract has alerted Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who would welcome the chance to add the 24-year old’s goalscoring flair from ...

Real Madrid could tempt Liverpool with a world record bid for Luis Suarez while Louis Van Gaal wants Mats Hummels and Bastian Schweinsteiger at Manchester United. This is Rumour Mill. Real Madrid TEMPTS LIVERPOOL FOR SUAREZ Liverpool gun Luis Suarez might have told teammates he intends to stay at the club, but will the Barclays Premier League runners up be able to resist should Real Madrid come calling with $182 million? The Daily Mail – quoting sources within the Bernabeu – claims Real will bid that figure for the injured Uruguayan should Karim Benzema, who is chasing a substantial pay rise, not agree to a new deal at the Spanish club. Former Los Blancos president Ramon Calderon added credence to the speculation when he claimed Real Madrid could indeed go after the striker – who topped the EPL scoring charts with 31 goals this season. “Karim Benzema is a good player, but it is true he didn’t score as many goals as people thought (he should),” Calderon told talkSPORT. “Luis Suarez, no doubt, ...

LONDON EVENING STANDARD Sam Allardyce was in defiant mood over his uncertain future at West Ham and insisted his record speaks for itself. A bullish Jose Mourinho was left wondering what might have been on his Chelsea return and pondering his summer options after a Barclays Premier League- concluding win at relegated Cardiff. Fulham manager Felix Magath criticised the lack of fighting spirit shown by some of his players in their Premier League survival bid. Adam Lallana wants to be challenging for the title and playing Champions League football, but the England international insists that does not necessarily mean he will leave Southampton this summer.

Match Report Sun 4 May 2014, Stamford Bridge and Norwich City's ambitions at opposite ends of the Barclays Premier League table hang by a thread after a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge. On the back of their midweek semi- final defeat by Atletico Madrid in the Uefa Champions League, Chelsea were unable to restore winning ways against their relegation-threatened opponents. Andre Schurrle and David Luiz struck a post and crossbar respectively for the hosts either side of half-time as nerves worked against an engaging spectacle. Jose Mourinho's title hopes will end if Liverpool win at Crystal Palace on Monday, while Manchester City, leaders having beaten Everton 3-2 on Saturday, will restrict them to third position if they win their match in hand against Aston Villa on Wednesday. Norwich ended a run of five straight league defeats but Sunderland's 1-0 triumph at Manchester United means that Neil Adams' side must beat Arsenal on the final weekend and hope that Sunderland, who hold a vastly superior goal difference ...
HISTORY Arsenal secured their first Barclays Premier League title in emphatic style as they overwhelmed Everton 4-0 at Highbury on 3rd May, 1998. Arsenal lost their final two matches and ended up winning the title by a single point from Manchester United. A week after the season ended, the Gunners completed the double with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in the Fa Cup final. Can they end their trophyless era against Hull City in the Fa Cup and bring back the good old days?
Jones hurt against Hull Phil Jones suffered an injury blow in the first half of Manchester United's final Barclays Premier League home game with Hull City. The defender, who started at centre-back alongside Chris Smalling, hurt his shoulder when colliding with Maynor Figueroa as he attempted to reach an Adnan Januzaj corner. With the World Cup finals on the horizon, England coach Roy Hodgson will be anxiously awaiting an update on the problem, which led to Jones heading straight for the tunnel. "He's gone to hospital and we will just have to *** it," explained Giggs. "But it does not look great. "I'm just saying that the reaction, he asked to come off straight away, whether it's precaution or not, from a player's point of view, you know if it's bad. Hopefully it's not too bad." The injury presented substitute Nemanja Vidic with a chance to step into the breach, to a rousing ovation, as he said his farewells to Old Trafford ahead of a summer move to Inter Milan.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes it would 'definitely be a bigger miracle' than Manchester United's epic 1999 Champions League final triumph if Cardiff can avoid Barclays Premier League relegation.
Manchester United got Ryan Giggs’ tenure as interim manager off to the perfect start with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Norwich in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday.

Voting is now open for Manchester United's Player of the Year and there are plenty of contenders for the Sir Matt Busby trophy. David De Gea has just been named as the Reds' star man during March and has enjoyed a fine campaign, with an impressive tally of 19 clean sheets so far. Several stunning saves have added to his growing reputation and he has arguably established himself as the best goalkeeper in the Barclays Premier League. He'll face stiff competition from Wayne Rooney, who could match Cristiano Ronaldo's achievement of winning the award three times. Notable feats this season include passing the 200-goal mark and moving up to third in the club's all-time scoring charts. He has also picked up three Player of the Month awards, most recently in December. It's been a breakthrough year for Adnan Januzaj. The 18-year-old has had a rapid rise to stardom following two goals on his first start, away to Sunderland, and looks to be one of the most exciting young prospects at Old Trafford in years.

Man United deny rumours Beckham and Qatari royal family are poised to buy out club for £2bn after Glazer family 'lose interest' Manchester United have rubbished suggestions the Glazer Family have lost interest in the club and a £2billion Qatari bid fronted by David Beckham is poised to take over. According to reports, Beckham and his 'Class of '92' teammates Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and the Neville Brothers are involved in a bid funded by the Qatari royal family. They have approached the Glazer family - who own 90 per cent of the Old Trafford club - on a number of occasions and the price remains the only stumbling block t had been suggested in The Sun that the Glazers have become disillusioned with running the club as they lurch from one disaster to another under David Moyes.

MATCH PREVIEW West Ham v HULL Wednesday 26 March 2014 | Boleyn Ground | Kick-off 20:45 West Ham United will be looking to stop a run of three straight defeats when Hull City visit Upton Park on Wednesday. Sam Allardyce's side are looking over their shoulder after a poor March during which they lost all their Barclays Premier League fixtures. Four wins in as many matches in February looked to have pushed West Ham towards survival, but since the turn of the month they have struggled, following defeats at Everton and Stoke City with a 2-0 home defeat by Manchester United on Saturday. West Ham are 14th, just six points above the relegation zone, and were overtaken by Hull at the weekend by virtue of Steve Bruce's side's 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion. Allardyce has told his players to shrug off any anxiety, admitting that pressure could be playing a part. "There's always pressure that builds when you have a run of defeats," he said. "The anxiety when it's like that is felt all around the ground You have t ...
Tonight's BPL Fixtures: Wednesday, 26 March 2014 21:45 West Ham vs Hull City West Ham v Hull City Preview West Ham boss Sam Allardyce will give winger Matt Jarvis every chance to feature in Wednesday's Barclays Premier League clash with Hull. The 27-year-old suffered a thigh injury towards the end of Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Manchester United, but Allardyce is hopeful he will be fit for the visit of Steve Bruce's Tigers. Joey O'Brien (shoulder) and Marco Borriello (calf) remain absent for the Hammers while Allardyce also confirmed Ricardo Vaz Te is struggling for match fitness after returning to training.

PREDICTION TIME guys!!! MATCHDAY-Man.Utd. v Man.City kickoff 26/3/2014 am(Singapore time) Form guide: Manchester United go into the derby in a positive frame of mind, following the 3-0 and 2-0 wins over Olympiacos and West Ham respectively within the space of the last few days. City will also be in a buoyant mood, having beaten Hull and Fulham in the Barclays Premier League since their exits from both the Fa Cup and the Champions League earlier this month. Ins and outs: Nemanja Vidic serves the second of the two-game suspension he accrued for his second red card of the season, against Liverpool. Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling and Rio Ferdinand were all absent from the squad for Saturday’s win at West Ham, but Michael Carrick acquitted himself superbly in central defence alongside Phil Jones and may be an option there once again. A knee injury has side-lined Robin Van Persie for four to six weeks. Vincent Kompany will be available for City after his own one-match ban, but Sergio Aguero has, according to Blu ...
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce will still be without defender Joey O'Brien and forward Marco Borriello when reigning Barclays Premier League champions Manchester United visit Upton Park on Saturday.
David Moyes has admitted he has felt 'ashamed' about some of Manchester United's performances this season. The Scot, who took over for legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson last summer, has endured a miserable domestic campaign, as United sit seventh in the Barclays Premier League.
Wayne Rooney believes Chelsea are playing the best football in the country as Manchester United head in to a derby game next Tuesday with neighbours City. United striker Rooney will watch today's Champions League quarter final draw with interest after Wednesday night's thrilling 3-0 win over Olympiacos and believes David Moyes' team can even go all the way in this year's competition. Ahead of next week's derby encounter with City in the Barclays Premier League, however, Rooney believes Chelsea have the upper hand in the title race. Deliberation: With all 8 Uefa Champions League quarter-finalists set to know their respective opponents after today's draw, what are your expectations?
David Moyes is confident that he will not be sacked despite a woeful debut season in charge of Manchester United. United suffered their latest disappointment in a wretched season on Sunday when they lost 3-0 to old foes Liverpool at Old Trafford. That defeat left United seventh in the Barclays Premier League, 14 points adrift of the top four with just nine matches remaining. It is understood the United board are not considering replacing Moyes at this moment in time, but the crucial support of the club's fans will surely disappear if results and performances do not improve. Moyes came out fighting against suggestions he is living on borrowed time, telling a press conference ahead of Wednesday's Champions League last-16 second leg against Olympiacos at Old Trafford: "My future has not changed one bit. "I have got a great job, I know exactly the direction I want to go in." Moyes said he had not had any discussions with the board about his future, but he remains convinced United will stick by him. Recent con ...
David Moyes believes his Manchester United players are capable of putting Sunday's defeat to Liverpool behind them and producing a stirring Champions League comeback against Olympiacos. The Reds must quickly forget the disappointing Barclays Premier League setback at home to Brendan Rodgers' side in order to focus on overturning a 2-0 deficit to the Greek champions, who have retained their title since the first leg, on Wednesday. Moyes insists his side are capable of doing that and has asked for more of the same support from the fans as United go out "all guns blazing" at Old Trafford. The manager told reporters: "The players are capable of turning it around. We're all desperate to put things right and make sure we play better to give the supporters here something to shout about. "They shouted [against Liverpool] and we didn't give them anything on the field. When we went to Greece, the Olympicos fans played their part, so hopefully our fans will roar us on. "We have to go for the throat to get the win. W ...
Moyes: Nothing went for us David Moyes was disappointed and frustrated with the way the game panned out as Manchester United suffered a 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool on Sunday. Having not conceded a Barclays Premier League penalty since December 2011, the Reds fell foul of three in one game against the second-placed Merseysiders. The second – converted by Steven Gerrard moments into the second half – came at a terrible time for United and a harsh-looking second yellow card for Nemanja Vidic only compounded matters. Gerrard's first-half spot-kick and Luis Suarez's late goal completed the scoring. "There's disappointment for everybody – all the Manchester United supporters – that we didn't get the result today, and disappointment about the goals and the way they were conceded," Moyes told MUTV.
David Moyes says Manchester United winger Nani is available to face Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League along with Rafael, Jonny Evans and Javier Hernandez.
Bayern Munich forward Toni Kroos left the door open for a switch to the Barclays Premier League in the summer amid reports Manchester United have expressed interest.
Andre Schurrle's maiden hat-trick for Chelsea was the second of his career after the three goals for Germany against Sweden last October. It was achieved in just 16 minutes and 34 seconds of the second half but was not as quick as substitute Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's treble against Wolves in March 2004, which took just 13 minutes and helped us to a 5-2 victory. Andre is the third German to score a Barclays Premier League hat-trick after Fredi Bobic of Bolton and Tottenham favourite Jurgen Klinsmann, and the last three top- flight trebles have been by Blues men. Only six other sides in Premier League history have produced three individual hat-trick scorers over the same campaign, and none as many times as the pride of London's three. Up to now only Manchester United and Arsenal and have managed four in one Premier League season… watch this space.

Manchester United rediscovered the old confidence, style and swagger in a tremendous 3-0 win at West Brom. Phil Jones headed only his second Barclays Premier League goal for the club before Wayne Rooney and substitute Danny Welbeck finished off incisive moves to lift the team into sixth in the table. The Reds were on top in the first half, even if defensive pairing Jones and Chris Smalling both had to make important tackles, with a fourth corner inside the opening 16 minutes leading to Youssouf Mulumbu clearing off the line to prevent an own goal by Chris Brunt. Ben Foster pulled off a reflex save to tip a Rafael header onto the bar from Adnan Januzaj's fine cross but had no chance when Jones powered home a header from Robin Van Persie's inviting free-kick. Jones was relieved to see Victor Anichebe fire wide after showing his strength before real controversy when Foster handled outside his box when miscontrolling Juan Mata's intended pass to Van Persie. Referee Jon Moss deemed it unintentional, so it went ...
Barclays Premier League: West Brom v Manchester United for breakfast and Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspurs for lunch...
MATCH PREVIEW West Bromwich Albion will be aiming to claim a double over Manchester United when the teams meet at the Hawthorns on Saturday lunchtime. The Baggies stunned the title holders with a 2-1 triumph at Old Trafford in September, but the trend since then has been one of declining fortunes for the Midlanders. The subsequent 21 Barclays Premier League matches have yielded only two victories and the club have handed the reins to Pepe Mel in a bid to preserve their top-flight status. Just one point separates Mel's men from the bottom three with 18th-placed Sunderland having a match in hand. The visitors do not have any relegation issues to concern themselves with, but David Moyes' charges are in unfamiliar territory. Since the advent of the Premier League in 1992, United have finished in the top three every season, and yet this time around they sit seventh. It has been a campaign of inconsistency for the Old Trafford outfit, who have at times strung promising runs together - as evidenced by a six-matc ...

LONDON EVENING STANDARD Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard was left disappointed after the Blues surrendered a one-goal advantage in their last-16 first leg at Galatasaray on Wednesday. Kyle Naughton does not think Tottenham can use their gruelling Europa League campaign as an excuse for falling off the pace in the Barclays Premier League. Sam Allardyce has refused to give Andy Carroll any guarantees he will return to the West Ham starting line-up following the completion of his ban. MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS David Moyes will use an all-new scouting system to ensure Manchester United are up to speed with the worldwide market. Joloen Lescott's contract will expire in the summer and he is keen to play a role in what could be his last final of a successful four- year stay at Manchester City. Liverpool Echo Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone are bidding to put the misery of their injury-hit season behind them - by making a symbolic return for Everton's final home game. Kolo Toure believes the transformation in Liverpo ...
MERTESACKER REFUSES TO DWELL ON UCL DEFEAT Per Mertesacker has warned Arsenal must "switch off" from the disappointment of their UCL defeat to Bayern Munich to avoid losing ground in the domestic title race. The Gunners lost 2-0 to the reigning European champions at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night in a match where club-record signing Mesut Ozil had a tame early penalty saved and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was then sent off for tripping Arjen Robben in the box. Bayern full-back David Alaba sent the resultant spot-kick against the post but there was to be no great escape for the English side as eventually Bayern's patient build-up was rewarded when Manchester United target Toni Kroos fired home a 20-yard effort and substitute Thomas Muller headed in a late second to all but kill off the tie. Arsenal must now regroup for Saturday's visit of relegation battlers Sunderland when Arsene Wenger's side will look to keep pace in the race for the Barclays Premier League title. "We will concentrate on Satur ...
Liverpool starting to believe they can 14 February By Ian Ladyman A year is a long time in football. Liverpool know this. What they don’t know is just how far their remarkable rebirth can take them in the Barclays Premier League. At the end of February 2013 Brendan Rodgers’s side were eighth, 29 points behind leaders Manchester United. They were behind West Bromwich Albion, too, having just lost to Steve Clarke’s team for the second time in one season. Twelve months on and Liverpool’s title credentials are under discussion, Steven Gerrard’s last-minute penalty at Fulham on Wednesday having announced them as a team not yet ready to disappear from the rear-view mirror of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City. On Merseyside, they are thankful. Rodgers, Liverpool’s likeable, intense manager, has given the fans their self-respect back and that, for now, is enough. It’s been overdue. But the question doing the rounds at Anfield as well as the Emirates, the Etihad and Stamford Bridge at the end of a ...
Robin Van Persie Headed Back To Arsenal? Could Happen This Summer, Says Report Robin Van Persie, the superstar Dutch striker who signed a four-year contract with Manchester United in 2012 then proceeded to propel the Red Devils to the Premier League championship in the final season for legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson, may now be on his way back to his original Barclays Premier League club , Arsenal. That’s the talk of the English football world after the January Transfer Window closed on Friday and The Daily Mail reported the rumor of Robin Van Persie’s potential reunion with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. Van Persie scored 26 Premier League goals in 2012/13 to lead Manchester United to its 20th English top flight title, and 13th since the highest level of English football (aka soccer) reorganized into the Premier League in 1992. In fact, under Fergsuon, Manchester United won that inaugural Premier League championship and never looked back. But in its first Premier League season since Ferguson’s re ...
Loans: Zaha shines Manchester United youngster Wilfried Zaha made an impressive start to his loan spell at Cardiff City by claiming an assist in their 2-1 Barclays Premier League win over Norwich City on Saturday. The Reds winger, who joined the Bluebirds for the remainder of the season on Friday, came off the bench on 38 minutes and made a near-immediate impact. Shortly after the break, Zaha set up Craig Bellamy to level the scores, before Kenwyne Jones scored what proved to be the winner a minute. Although victory for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men was not enough to take them out of the relegation zone, just three points now separate them from 12th place. Elsewhere, Federico Macheda scored a last-gasp equaliser for Birmingham City, as they held Derby to a 3-3 draw at St. Andrews in the Championship. The striker, making his first appearance for the club, was introduced on the hour mark and fired home from close range with the last kick of the game. Defenders Tyler Blackett and Tom Thorpe also started the gam ...
West Ham 2-0 Swansea Kevin Nolan scored twice to move 10-man West Ham United out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Swansea City. The West Ham captain's first-half double earned the points for Sam Allardyce's side, who played the final half an hour a man down after Andy Carroll marked his first home top-flight start of the season with a straight red card after a challenge on Chico Flores. Carroll assisted both Nolan goals with knock-downs, but his game was cut short when referee Howard Webb dismissed him after an aerial challenge with Flores resulted in his flailing arm clipping the Spaniard's head. However, despite that setback, West Ham stood firm in the face of continued Swansea pressure to record just their third league win of the season at Upton Park and go above Stoke City on goal difference ahead of their game against Manchester United. Both clubs were active in the January Transfer Window, but all three new signings named in their squads on Saturday star ...
Juan Mata believes speed is the key to Manchester United getting three more valuable points from Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Stoke.
SPORTS UPDATE: With Emmah. Schalke manager has today denied claims that Germany midfielder, Julian Draxler was on the verge of signing for Premier League side Arsenal. "I am very sure that Julian will not only play the second half of the season for us, but also probably beyond," the Schalke boss told a press conference in Gelsenkirchen. Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that he remains "active" in the January Transfer Window but denies that the club are "close" to securing a new signing. David Moyes believes that Juan Mata has increased the competition for places at Manchester United squad, citing the Spaniard's ability to fulfill different roles. Newcastle United have appealed against the sending-off of Loic Remy, which is set to sideline the Frenchman from Saturday's north-east Barclays Premier League derby match against Sunderland. Newcastle United’s bid for Lyon midfielder, Clement Grenier has been rejected by the French club, after the France international said he was unaware of a pote ...
Manchester United v Cardiff City Juan Mata has been handed his first Manchester United start for their Barclays Premier League encounter with Cardiff – and Robin Van Persie returned too as David Moyes’ men looked to kick-start their season. Mata completed his club record £37.1m move from Chelsea on Saturday, while Van Persie has missed 11 games with a thigh strain. Ryan Giggs was handed his 800th start for the club, whilst Wayne Rooney was also back on the bench after shrugging off a groin problem that has kept him out since the New Year’s Day defeat by Tottenham. Former United striker Fraizer Campbell was named in attack by Cardiff boss - and Red Devils hero – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who also handed Craig Bellamy his first start since November 9.

Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed Manchester United can still win this season’s Barclays Premier League. His bold prediction came as Juan Mata signed for £37million and Wayne Rooney looked set to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.
Moyes hoping to complete £37million deal before this end of this week Mourinho understood to have accepted Mata's wish for first-team football Juan Mata missed Chelsea training on Wednesday as a deal to take him to Manchester United for £37million could be finalised by the end of the week. Jose Mourinho was watching his first team train but Mata was conspicuous by his absence at their Cobham training ground. Talks regarding the 25-year-old Spain midfielder are so far advanced that Mata is convinced he will have a medical before the weekend. Although United are treating the deal with extreme caution after their failure to land a string of big names last summer, manager David Moyes believes the move is close to being concluded. Mata is determined to leave Chelsea after becoming frustrated with his failure to impress Jose Mourinho this season. United, who are six points off fourth place in the Barclays Premier League, are under financial pressure to qualify for the Champions League. And although the transf ...

Manchester United's Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa is acclimatised to the Barclays Premier League but admits he is still working on his strength.
it's been four years in the making but Arsene Wenger has finally cracked his central defensive quandary. Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker have provided the foundation for Arsenal’s Barclays Premier League title tilt. Monday night’s victory at Aston Villa extended a remarkable run that has seen the Gunners undefeated in every league match in which Koscielny and Mertesacker have completed 90 minutes, since a 2-1 home defeat against Manchester United on January 22, 2012. That period has included 28 games, 20 of which have resulted in victories. t is a typical case of opposites attracting. Mertesacker is uncompromising, Koscielny more polished. Mertesacker is the dressing room motivator, Koscielny the quiet, introverted professional. Together they look like the magic formula for Wenger, who hatched his plan to get them together as far back as 2009. Then, with Thomas Vermaelen, William Gallas and Mikael Silvestre as the club’s senior centre backs, Wenger decided he was missing something. He wanted m ...

Birmingham boss Lee Clark has set his sights on catching the teams in the Sky Bet Championship play-off spots after Andrew Shinnie and Nikola Zigic fired his side to a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth, while Eddie Howe was impressed with his team despite the defeat. The first-half goals ensure the in-form Blues are unbeaten in six and have now won their last three away fixtures. Scotsman Shinnie, who signed from Inverness in the summer, opened the scoring after three minutes when he swept an Oliver Lee cross high past Lee Camp. Serbia striker Zigic, a veteran of the club's time in the Barclays Premier League, then doubled the lead on 33 minutes, finishing off a neat move involving Lee and Manchester United loanee Jesse Lingard. After an indifferent start to the campaign, Clark now wants to keep the momentum going. "We are well aware of what is going on below us, we are not oblivious to that, but we do want to look at what is going on above us and try and crawl that deficit back," he said. "I knew all along wh ...
Moyes' night of *** United boss suffers shock defeat against old club Everton, the champions now sit 12 points off Arsenal in ninth - and Toffees fans chant 'you're getting sacked in the morning!' Honeymoon over. Not that everything been going swimmingly for David Moyes since leaving Everton for Manchester United. But things took a serious turn for worse after Wednesday night's encounter with the ex. Vitriol and hatred poured down from the visiting fans to Moyes's right after a late winner from Bryan Oviedo condemned Manchester United to their fourth defeat of the Barclays Premier League campaign.

United 1 Arsenal 0 Robin Van Persie's superb header accounted for Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal and catapulted Manchester United firmly into the title race on a tense afternoon at Old Trafford. In a game of few chances, the Dutchman's first-half header from a Wayne Rooney corner made the tangible difference between champions and pace-setters, but the foundations for success were built on a magnificently dogged defensive display from David Moyes' men. The United manager opted to field Phil Jones in a withdrawn central midfield role alongside Michael Carrick, safeguarding against the Gunners' advanced midfield threat, and the move almost totally stifled the visitors' creativity in central areas. A forward four of Van Persie, Rooney, Antonio Valencia and Shinji Kagawa, meanwhile, offered United plenty of attacking menace. A cagey opening to the game yielded plenty of possession for United, but the clear mutual respect shared by the sides meant a dearth of chances. When United forged ahead, it was w ...
Rene Meulensteen believes that his old side should sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan. Wayne Rooney set Manchester United a target to be top of the Barclays Premier League by January 1. Phil Neville says Manchester United are heading into the right direction after yesterday's win. RvP: Last season I respected Arsenal fans a lot and they never repaid the favor what I did so I choose to celebrate the goal yesterday.
United coming good – Pallister Gary Pallister is backing Manchester United to respond to the pressure of Sunday’s “must-win” Barclays Premier League showdown with leaders Arsenal at Old Trafford. Having fallen eight points adrift of the Gunners following a faltering start to David Moyes’ reign as manager, United have stabilised their position over the last month. An eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions has boosted morale, even if it has not made much difference to their position in the table. This weekend’s clash offers the chance to land a heavy blow, and, after collecting only one point from those tough early-season encounters with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, prove the Red Devils will be among the major contenders as usual next spring. And Pallister is expecting a response. The Former United defender, who was supporting the Manchester United Foundation Chevrolet Trax eBay auction, said: “Sunday is a bigger game for United. The pressure is heaped on them. “We cannot ge ...

Rodgers ready to ramp up Hughes interest as Liverpool fight United for Derby kid Liverpool have emerged as Manchester United's biggest rivals for Will Hughes after Brendan Rodgers installed the teenage prospect as his top target for the January Transfer Window. Already linked with Hughes, along with several other Barclays Premier League clubs, Liverpool are now ready to grasp the initiative, with Rodgers poised to ask for the necessary funding to land Derby's England Under 21 midfielder when the market opens again. Derby manager Steve McClaren effectively sounded the starting gun for a scramble to sign Hughes in the New Year by admitting the Championship club could not hope to hold on to him much longer. Derby may demand as much as £15million for the 18-year old, and while Liverpool will try and negotiate that down towards single figures, Rodgers will urge his board to pull out all the stops to bring him to Anfield. Rodgers was interested in the left-sided attacker before the last window shut and is now ...
Moyes assured financial backing Manchester United are ready to back David Moyes in the transfer market after acknowledging their squad needs strengthening. United are due to fly to Donetsk for a Champions League encounter with Shakhtar that has taken on additional significance following Saturday’s Barclays Premier League defeat by West Brom. The loss was the club’s third in six games this season. It represents their worst start to a league campaign since 1989 and has seen them slide into the bottom half of the table and pushed out to fourth favourites to retain their crown, with the bookmakers believing United will be battling Tottenham for the final Champions League place. This is not quite the transition envisaged in the summer, when Moyes walked into a club fresh from romping to a record 20th league championship by an impressive 11 points. Yet the majority of Red Devils supporters accepted it was a rather flattering outcome, and the squad Moyes inherited from Sir Alex Ferguson had clear deficiencie ...
Owen: Moyes will get it right Michael Owen insists David Moyes will come through the rocky start to his Manchester United career and prove to be the right choice to replace Sir Alex Ferguson. United have suffered three defeats in their opening six Barclays Premier League games to leave Moyes reeling. Some fans have been critical of his team selection, in particular his use of Shinji Kagawa and decision not to give new boy Wilfried Zaha any time on the pitch. Others acknowledge the squad Moyes inherited is nowhere near as strong as last season’s 11-point title win indicated, a fact the Scot himself has seemed to endorse over the weekend. In addition, Eric Steele has claimed Moyes went against the advice of Ferguson by dispensing with the services of the former goalkeeping coach and senior coaches Rene Meulensteen and Mike Phelan in the summer, denying United the continuity that could be invaluable at the present time. It has created a pretty unhappy backdrop ahead of Wednesday night’s Champions League ...

Fellaini shines bright at the centre of Manchester United's midfield By IAN LADYMAN PUBLISHED 18 September 2013 Peculiarly, the official UEFA team sheet had Marouane Fellaini starting on the left-hand side of Manchester United’s midfield at Old Trafford. European football’s governing body may run this competition, but Michel Platini and his friends don’t get to pick the teams. Not yet anyway. So it was, therefore, that United’s big summer signing began the night in the position where we will see him most, the base of central midfield. Certainly there was something reassuring about the sight of Fellaini and Michael Carrick at the heart of United’s rather traditional 4-4-2 formation (4-1-3-2 if you want to be fancy). It was rather like looking at the bolt on the back door. Without wishing to vandalise Sir Alex Ferguson’s legacy, United have long been short in this area. Too often they have spent long periods without the football and while that may win you a weak Barclays Premier League it will n ...

Put it in writing, Rooney By Ian Ladyman London – Wayne Rooney will have to submit a written transfer request if he wants to leave Manchester United. The Old Trafford forward returned to training on Wednesday with his future still up in the air. It is understood he did not have a specific meeting with new manager David Moyes about his situation. That may happen at the club’s Carrington training centre on Thursday. The two men did speak but not for long and United’s stance on him remains unchanged. They say the England forward is not for sale. Having knocked back a speculative enquiry from Barclays Premier League rivals Arsenal last week, United have not had any contact from one of the few clubs that could afford Rooney. The only way the situation will change is if the player decides to force the issue. Sportsmail revealed at the end of last season that Rooney had suggested to previous United manager Sir Alex Ferguson that a move may be in his best interests. A written request would mean Rooney would ...
Dion Dublin believes Wilfried Zaha will seamlessly acclimatise to life at Manchester United - as long as the new recruit adopts the right mentality and attitude to training. 44-year-old Dublin knows exactly how hard it is join the Reds from a lower league club, having moved to Old Trafford from Cambridge United in 1992 after manager Sir Alex Ferguson plucked the towering striker from the depths of English football on the advice of U’s boss John Beck. Today, Zaha is following a similar path by swapping the Championship for the Barclays Premier League following his recent transfer from Crystal Palace. And when asked what it’s like to move up a division, or four in his case, Dublin was typically insightful in his response. “It is pretty scary, I won’t deny that,” he told MUTV. “It took me about three or four months to realise that I had moved from Cambridge United, who were in the fourth division, to Manchester United, who were the biggest club in the world. “Sir Alex was the person who wanted ...

Jose Mourinho will warn all of his Chelsea squad to do it his way next season or leave Stamford Bridge. Chelsea secured back-to-back Barclays Premier League titles under Mourinho's last regime, not to mention winning the Fa Cup and also the League Cup twice. However, since his acrimonious departure in September 2007, the Blues have also endured more than their fair share of negative headlines - from air rifles fired in the training ground dressing room to John Terry's bust-up with former team-mate Wayne Bridge and subsequent race row with Anton Ferdinand. Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who is very close to Mourinho, often lamented the rise of player power within the modern game and the Portuguese sees no issue with maintaining the image of the club during his second tenure after agreeing a four-year deal to return following his departure from Real Madrid. "What Sir Alex says in relation to football and management is doctrine, it is the bible, so if he says that (about player power) wi ...

David Moyes has completed his first signing as Manchester United manager after the Barclays Premier League champions confirmed the arrival of defender Guillermo Varela. The 20-year-old Uruguayan is moving to Old Trafford from Atletico Penarol, with United's official website reporting an undisclosed fee. Moyes, who is new to the job after replacing the retired Sir Alex Ferguson will be able to view Varela in action immediately as he is in Uruguay's squad for the Under-20 World Championships in Turkey. Varela, who played just one senior game for Penarol, is a full-back and will provide competition for the likes of Rafael and Fabio da Silva, Patrice Evra and Alexander Buttner. Moyes does not officially take up office at Old Trafford until July 1 but has been familiarising himself with the club ever since his departure from Everton was confirmed last month.
A Manchester United XI will take on Swansea City on August 13 for Alan Tate's Testimonial. The Reds will travel to the Liberty Stadium for the Tuesday night fixture in the week leading up to the big kick-off for the 2013/2014 Barclays Premier League. Swans centre-back Tate started his career with United as a trainee and had a loan spell at Royal Antwerp before joining his current club, initially on a temporary basis. The 30-year-old spent some of last term on loan with Leeds United but is being rewarded for his stay in Wales with a night to remember against the Reds. "I'm extremely grateful to the club and Manchester United for granting me this testimonial," Tate told Swansea's official website. "I spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson before he announced his retirement and he was really supportive. "It was great to go back there a few weeks ago to say farewell, thank him and see a few old faces. I still keep in regular contact with Darren Fletcher and, in fairness, Sir Alex has always asked him how I was getting on ...
Martinez to leave Wigan Wigan chairman Dave Whelan paved the way for manager Roberto Martinez to become the next Everton boss after reluctantly accepting the Spaniard's request to leave the club. Talks had been ongoing between the pair over the last week since relegation from the Barclays Premier League followed their historic Fa Cup win. Martinez has been linked with the vacant job at Goodison Park ever since David Moyes was announced as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor at Manchester United and the Toffees made their move on Friday. That appears to have persuaded the Wigan manager the time was right to end his four-year association with the club and although Whelan will not stand in the way of the 39-year-old, he will demand compensation. Martinez remains in his post for the time being but Whelan told Press Association Sport: "Roberto wants to move on and I have got to accept it. "Everton rang me and I said they have permission to talk to him. I would never stop Roberto talking to football clubs. "We will l ...

Tony Pulis: Leaves Potters after seven years £10 completely free bet Stoke have confirmed the end of Tony Pulis' seven-year reign as manager, announcing that the parting of ways has been "mutually agreed". Widespread speculation had suggested the 55-year-old's time was up after a meeting with chairman Peter Coates on Tuesday morning. However, it took the Potters several hours to finalise the details of his departure, with confirmation finally coming at shortly before 9.30pm in the evening. In a brief statement, the Barclays Premier League club said: "Stoke City and Tony Pulis confirm that they have mutually agreed that Tony will leave the Club with immediate effect." Pulis, who following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes' move into the Manchester United hotseat was the second-longest serving manager in the country, leaves Stoke in a far better position than he found them. Within two years of taking over for his second spell in charge in 2006, he won promotion to the Premier League, wher ...
On this day: 14 May 1995 - Liverpool 2-1 Blackburn Blackburn Rovers sealed their first Barclays Premier League title on a dramatic final day of the 1994/95 season, despite losing 2-1 to Liverpool, as Manchester United fell short by drawing 1-1 with West Ham United. Kenny Dalglish's Blackburn side were two points ahead of Man Utd going in to the final day and, despite going a goal up against Liverpool at Anfield through top-scorer Alan Shearer, they handed their title rivals the opportunity to *** the title if they won as John Barnes got an equaliser for Liverpool. Sir Alex Ferguson's Man Utd team went a goal down against West Ham at the Boleyn Ground but Brian Mcclair equalised for the visitors and they were piling on the pressure for a victory that would have ensured they won their third consecutive league title. Blackburn were dealt a further blow when Jamie Redknapp stunned them with a late winner at Anfield, meaning they had to suffer an agonising wait to see if West Ham, who had nothing to play fo .. ...

He knows this!RT Petr Cech says Manchester United will win the Barclays Premier League
Separated by the maximum 19 places in the league and a point difference that could be in excess of 50 come the final whistle doesn't come anywhere close to explaining the real story when on Saturday morning at Loftus Road the runaway leaders of the Barclays Premier League face the league's bottom place team. The immense gulf in all facets both on and off the pitch renders the match between Queens Park Rangers and Manchester United as a David and Goliath encounter in the truest of senses. Then we have the diametrically opposed records and personalities of the two managers. In the blue corner we have the BPL's original barrow boy, rent a quote himself King Harold of Redknapp. The only man in the entire 150-year history of English football who in early 2012, talked his way out of the England manager's job whilst blissfully ignoring the facts - the not inconsiderable matter the name Harry Redknapp didn't even appear on the FA's candidates list. We can't get into 'Arry's alleged wheeling and dealing. A few sea ...
