Van Gaal TO WIELD THE AXE? Radamel Falcao, Robin Van Persie, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Rafael Da Silva could all leave Manchester United this summer as manager Louis Van Gaal prepares for another mass clear-out, according to the Guardian. All six players have entered the final 18 months of their contracts at Old Trafford and have yet to sign new deals at the club. David De Gea is also among the players to have entered the later stages of his contract, but United are confident he will commit his future to the club. They are not confident, however, over the futures of Van Persie, Evans, Jones, Smalling and Rafael. The club expect this summer to feature another exodus of players, similarly to when Van Gaal arrived at the club in July 2014 where 15 players were either sold or allowed to leave on loan. Falcao’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has added to the uncertainty surrounding his client’s future. He said: "What we do know is that he will play in one of the very best clubs in the world next se ...
London: Manchester United lost further momentum in the Premier League title race after drawing 1-1 with Stoke City at a windy Britannia Stadium on New Year’s Day. Radamel Falcao equalised for the visitors after Former United trainee Ryan Shawcross had scored the first Premier League goal of 2015 in the second minute, but it was a third draw in four games for Louis Van Gaal’s side. Stoke caught United cold by taking the lead inside second minutes, with Shawcross volleying into the net from close range after Peter Crouch had helped on a corner. Mame Biram Diouf, another United old boy, then spurned a glorious chance to extend Stoke’s lead when he bundled his way past Jonny Evans, only to curl wide with his left foot. Falcao equalised in the 26th minute, hooking home left-footed at the back post after Wayne Rooney’s corner had been flicked on by Michael Carrick to register the third goa ...
Manchester United have been held to a 1-1 draw by the 10 men of Aston Villa in a keenly-contested game at Villa Park this afternoon. The result has brought an end to a six-game winning streak for Louis Van Gaal's side, but they remain in the top three of the Premier League. Man Utd saw much of the ball in the opening 15 minutes but couldn't create any chances with their superior possession. Their lack of creativity came back to haunt them in the 18th minute as Christian Benteke bent a measured shot inside the far post from inside the box after Jonny Evans was unable to deal with a deep free kick. United were soon on the front foot again as they penned the hosts inside their own half, but a wall of claret and blue shirts prevented them from carving open any opportunities. After a Villa counter attack broke down, Man Utd almost got a goal back as Ashley Young's inswinging cross evaded everyone inside the box, but Brad Guzan clawed it away just as it looked to be creeping inside the far post. Radamel Falcao ...

Manchester United swept historic arch-rivals Liverpool aside with a fine 3-0 win to record the Reds’ sixth consecutive victory. Goals from Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata gave Louis Van Gaal’s side the comfort of a two-goal lead before half-time, with Robin Van Persie clinching all three points after the break. But United were once again indebted to goalkeeper David De Gea, who made the first of several crucial saves seconds before Rooney’s opener. A magnificent effort to touch a Mario Balotelli shot onto his bar at 2-0 kept the frustrated visitors at bay, and even after Van Persie had sealed the game, De Gea was using his body and feet to prevent any kind of consolation goal for the Merseysiders. Injuries to Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo forced Louis Van Gaal to again make changes in the United backline and he opted for the experience of Michael Carrick, Phil Jones and Jonny Evans. They faced a Liverpool side playing without a recognised striker - Raheem Sterling operated as a “false nine” - and wi ...
Jonny Evans could start for Manchester United after replacing the injured Chris Smalling during the first half of Monday's win at Southampton. The quintet of Angel Di Maria, Luke Shaw, Rafael, Phil Jones and Daley Blind remain on the sidelines. Liverpool's Adam Lallana is available despite having two cracked ribs, while Kolo Toure (groin) should be fit. Mario Balotelli has returned to training and could be involved after a six-match absence with a groin injury. Many wise old sages have stated that it's better to be a lucky manager than a good one, and Manchester United's latest win at Southampton on Monday will have had some thinking that in Louis Van Gaal, they might just have both together. His record shows he's good - very, very good - but to see his team win with a performance the Dutchman put mildly himself as "not good enough" suggested being somewhat blessed too. Others went much further, and the numbers backed them up: United had three shots on goal - their fewest in a league game since Opta start ...

Louis Van Gaal has confirmed Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is fit to play against Southampton on Monday evening after recovering from the knee injury that ruled him out of the midweek victory over Stoke City. Argentinian playmaker Angel Di Maria will not feature at St Mary’s Stadium, though, so that he can recover from the hamstring injury sustained in the first half of last weekend’s Barclays Premier League win over Hull City at Old Trafford. While speaking to MUTV about Di Maria's injury, Van Gaal gave a positive update on the no.7: "It's not a bad injury, but I am not a doctor. I have to say it like a manager, not like a doctor. But I think he shall recover very quickly." Continuing the Team News theme, Jonny Evans is fit for action and Phil Jones has returned to full training but the manager suggests the latter may have to play for the Reserves before returning to the first team. "Evans is coming back. He is fit to play. Jones is coming back but not fit to play. He needs training sessions ...
Manchester United v Hull (Kick-Off 3:00 p.m. UK / 4:00 Nigeria) Manchester United pair Radamel Falcao and Marcos Rojo could return from calf and shoulder injuries respectively to face Hull on Saturday. Jonny Evans played for the reserves this week but is expected to remain on the sidelines with Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, Rafael and Daley Blind. Hull forward Abel Hernandez will miss the trip to United in order to be at the birth of his child in Uruguay. The suspended Gaston Ramirez is the only other absentee for Hull. Match Preview It was interesting to listen to Ryan Giggs this week talking to BBC Radio 5 live about the similarities between Louis Van Gaal and Sir Alex Ferguson in terms of intensity and preparation, and how Van Gaal demands the same sort of intensity in training as in a game. "He sets standards and if you drop below them he is not happy," Giggs said. I don't doubt that for one minute, but he'll have been happy enough to have seen his injury-hit team win at Arsenal last week with an inexperienc ...
Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has said striker Radamel Falcao and defender Jonny Evans "are not ready" to start against Hull on Saturday 29 November but the duo may feature in the 18- man squad. Van Gaal stated during the press conference ahead of the Hull game that they may be included in the squad alongside Marcos Rojo.
Five questions in advance of Arsenal vs. Manchester United By Nick Miller Nick Miller looks at five key talking points regarding Saturday's clash between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates. 1. Who is going to play in defence for Manchester United? United manager Louis Van Gaal must be wondering what he did to anger whichever cruel god has cursed his Manchester United side this season. United's defence has been shaky at the best of times since he took over, but Van Gaal will go into Saturday's game with Marcos Rojo definitely out, and major doubts hanging over Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Luke Shaw and Rafael. Van Gaal might be forced to play a winger in Antonio Valencia at right back, central defender Tyler Blackett at left back, and in the middle, two of Chris Smalling, Paddy McNair or Michael Carrick. Smalling has looked little short of a liability at various points this season, McNair is a teenager with a handful of games under his belt and Carrick is a midfielder, who actually might be required ...
Jonny Evans could go straight back into the Manchester United startling eleven against Crystal Palace next Sunday [telegrap…
Your challenge is to name a more unlikely, ill-fitting and patched-up Manchester United back-four than the pair of midfielders and two 19-year-olds who ended up defending David De Gea’s net against the league champions and noisy neighbours on the other side of town. Antonio Valencia, who started right-back here, is a right winger. Michael Carrick, who came on as an emergency centre-back, is a holding midfielder. And Luke Shaw and Paddy McNair are both teenagers. Necessity, of course, once Chris Smalling had decided that one aberration really ought to be followed up with another (injuries are another mitigating factor). But how the club of Steve Bruce and Gary Pallister, of Jaap Stam and Rio Ferdinand, have had to embrace such extreme ad-libbing is now the most pressing question in Louis Van Gaal’s jerky first campaign. LVG, as we know him, was without Rafael, Phil Jones and Jonny Evans. With respect to those players, it would hardly compare to Chelsea losing John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivano ...
Louis Van Gaal has confirmed that Antonio Valencia, Jonny Evans and Paddy McNair are all still not ready to return for Manchester United.
Louis Van Gaal doubts whether Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans are good enough for Manchester United.
Manchester United have been put on red alert over Arturo Vidal as Juventus claim he's no longer "unsellable" Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil to miss games against Manchester United and Dortmund at the Emirates with knee injury Koke : Ronaldo is an athlete but Messi is a god Costa scored 36 goals for Atletico Madrid last season and has bagged 9 in 9 games for Chelsea this season Belgium are confident Chelsea duo Thibault Courtois and Eden Hazard will feature in their two Euro 2016 qualifiers Ander Herrera,Chris Smalling,Jonny Evans, Phil Jones & Michael Carrick will all be available for mufc's next match vs WBA
More injury snag for United as McNair ruled out for three weeks Manchester United defender Paddy McNair has been ruled out three weeks with a hamstring injury. McNair, 19, deputised at centre-back in the recent Premier League victories over West Ham and Everton at Old Trafford after a defensive injury crisis hit United. The youngster, who excelled in both games alongside Marcos Rojo, was expected to be handed a Northern Ireland call-up ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifiers with Faroe Islands and Greece. It leaves United boss Louis Van Gaal in a real predicament after summer signing Luke Shaw also picked up a knee injury on Sunday, although he is expected to have at least one of Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and Phil Jones available for their next clash at West Brom. Tyler Blackett also returned from suspension as a late substitute against Everton

Chris Smalling has joined Phil Jones and Jonny Evans among the injured center backs at Manchester United.
Manager Louis Van Gaal said Manchester United have only one senior centre-back available for Saturday's Premier League game against West Ham. Marcos Rojo is fit, but Chris Smalling (leg), Phil Jones (hamstring) and Jonny Evans (ankle) are injured and Tyler Blackett is suspended. Van Gaal said: "All three of my right- sided centre-halves are out, so I'll have to go to the youth system." Potential candidates to play include Tom Thorpe, 21, and Paddy McNair, 19. Neither under-21 captain Thorpe nor McNair, who joined United as a midfielder three years ago, have played for the first team. Smalling limped out of training on Wednesday and, with Luke Shaw expected to make his debut at left- back following his £28m summer arrival from Southampton, Rojo is likely to move to centre-half against the Hammers. "I won't take risks with players - they have to be fit," said Van Gaal, who is without nine players in total through injury. Midfielders Daley Blind or Darren Fletcher could be employed as centre-backs by United ...

5 Realistic Defensive Targets for Manchester United Manager Louis Van Gaal: Is a partnership of Jonny Evans an...
United were on course for a win when a Robin Van Persie header and a magical Angel Di Maria chip put them ahead. Leonardo Ulloa's header reduced the deficit before Ander Herrera's back heel extended United's lead. But Leicester hit back through a David Nugent penalty and Esteban Cambiasso equalised before Jamie Vardy and an Ulloa penalty secured the win. Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal will need to urgently address his team's defensive issues after their second-half capitulation, but he may have to do without both Tyler Blackett and Jonny Evans for their next game, against West Ham. Blackett was sent off for the foul on Vardy, which led to Ulloa's late spot-kick, and will be suspended on Saturday, while Van Gaal must await the result of a scan on Evans after the centre-back was forced from the field in the 30th minute and left the stadium on crutches. Whether the Northern Irishman would have been able to stem Leicester's incredible turnaround had he remained on the field is open to question. But ...
FOOTBALL NEWS. Louis Van Gaal's miserable start to life as Manchester United boss continued with a massive cup shock at the hands of League One MK Dons. Playing in the League Cup second round for the first time in 19 years, United were mauled by an energetic and clinical performance from the side two divisions below them, who were playing in front of the biggest crowd in their 10-year history. Four-time winners United did not register a shot on target until the 72nd minute against the team who were only founded in 2004. Will Grigg scored after a Jonny Evans mistake and then chested in an audacious second after the break. Benik Afobe, on loan from Arsenal, added two of his own to complete an embarrassing rout for the Premier League giants. Having finished seventh in the league last season, the Red Devils entered the second round for the first time since 1995 and with no European football this season, Van Gaal's only chance of silverware this season will be in the FA Cup and Premier League. But after a defe ...
Van Gaal's first Premier League game with Manchester United tomorrow. His back 3 consists of Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.
Louis Van Gaal feels he will need far longer to turn Manchester United's fortunes around despite completing the pre-season with six wins out of six. United rounded off their schedule of pre-season fixtures with a 2-1 win over Valencia on Tuesday, giving the Dutchman, who took over after leading the Netherlands to third place at the World Cup last month, victory in his first match as Red Devils boss at Old Trafford. They now face Swansea in their Premier League opener at home on Saturday but Van Gaal is unsure whether Jonny Evans, Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia, who sat out Tuesday's match through injury, will be available. With those three sidelined, Van Gaal had Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Tyler Blackett at centre-back, with Ashley Young and Reece James playing as wing-backs and Michael Keane the only defender on the bench against Spanish side Valencia. Left-back Shaw and midfielder Ander Herrera have been the only new signings so far this pre- season, although United are widely reported to have made ...

Manchester United beat Inter 5-3 on penalties after their International Champions Cup clash finished goalless. The Red Devils scored each of their penalties, with captain Darren Fletcher converting the decisive kick after Marco Andreolli rattled his effort off the crossbar. Manager Louis Van Gaal made four changes to the starting XI that played Roma on Saturday, with Anders Lindegaard, Chris Smalling, Fletcher and Ashley Young returning to the line-up. United came close to breaking the deadlock in the 10th minute with defender Phil Jones, he stooped low to direct his header towards the bottom corner of the net but Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic got his hand to the ball and denied Jonny Evans on the rebound in a goal-mouth scramble. There were few clear-cut chances throughout the first half, though Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Danny Welbeck cut the Italians apart with a thrilling passing move, only for Mata’s low cross to be cut out before it reached Rooney. Wilfried Zaha was the only player in United ...
Manchester United's successful Tour 2014, presented by Aon, continued with a penalty shoot-out victory after Louis Van Gaal's men were held to a goalless draw by Inter Milan. Ashley Young, Javier Hernandez, Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa and Darren Fletcher all converted from the spot to complete a full set of kicks for the Reds – playing in the new blue third kit for the first time – while Marco Andreolli's miss for Inter proved pivotal at the FedEx Field, home of NFL legends Washington Redskins. Van Gaal started with his three senior centre-backs all on the pitch, with Chris Smalling and Phil Jones switching to the middle and right respectively, while Jonny Evans retained the left-sided role in which he began the tour against LA Galaxy. Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia took up the wing-back positions, with Ander Herrera and again-captain Darren Fletcher allowing Juan Mata to support Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck. The man who Evans, Jones and Smalling are all striving to replace, Inter's new no.15 Ne ...
Arsenal's Thomas Vermaelen following Luke Shaw to Manchester United with £11m offer MANCHESTER UNITED are closing in on an £11million deal with Arsenal to sign Belgium defender Thomas Vermaelen. United are understood to have had an initial bid of £6m rejected but are ready to go back with an increased offer after third parties revealed Vermaelen is keen to move to Old Trafford once his World Cup duties with his country are over. Vermaelen, who has only one year left on his contract, lost his starting place with the Gunners last season when Arsene Wenger preferred Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny at centre-back. Following the departures of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, Van Gaal needs an experienced defender to help Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans. If the deal goes through, it will take United’s spending to £70m after the signings of midfielder Ander Herrera and left-back Luke Shaw.
Nemanja Vidic believes the future of Manchester United's central defence is secure with Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans ready to fill the void.
Manchester United want to bring in Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels to replace the outgoing Rio Ferdinand .Hummels went on the record saying he would rather win one championship as a key player than four championships as a part- time player , something which would have ruled him out of a move to United but now that Ferdinand and Vidic are both set to leave United this summer, there is certainly a place for Hummels in the side. Chris Smalling , Phil Jones and Jonny Evans don’t give United enough quality at the back and we’ll need to bring in a world class centre back if possible. Borussia Dortmund did not enjoy the best of campaigns this season and neither did Hummels but quality stands the test of time and he is still a great centre back with the potential to get better. A ball playing defender like Ferdinand was in his pomp, Hummels is not afraid to bring the ball out of defence and play it out from the back, something which would help United no end. If Ferdinand or Vidic had stayed on, United woul ...
Wayne Rooney looks set to miss Manchester United's final home game of the season after Ryan Giggs confirmed exclusively to MUTV that the striker is "struggling" with his fitness. The England international missed Saturday's defeat to Sunderland after illness and injury last week. Giggs revealed on Friday that Rooney was one of a number of players suffering with a bug and also confirmed that the forward had a tight hamstring. In an exclusive interview with MUTV on Monday, United's interim manager revealed: "Wayne is probably struggling for the game. He's not quite recovered. We'll continue to monitor him." When asked about the fitness of Jonny Evans and Rafael, Giggs said that Evans probably won't play again this season, but added: "Rafa has trained in the last few days and looks good. He could be involved in the remaining two games."
PICTURE: Jonny Evans ruled out for the rest of the season for Manchester United
What United means to me Jonny Evans is a lifelong Red who came through the ranks and has played 181 games for the club. Here, he explains the impact United has had on him... My first recollections of Manchester United would be going way back, probably in my granny's house having these little figures of United players. Even before that, I got a United poster for Christmas when I was five years old. My bedroom was all done out in Manchester United stuff: bed covers, posters... so it goes back to when I was just a kid. Joining the club actually happened over a number of years. When I was nine years old, a scout had come over to watch me play in Northern Ireland and asked me if I wanted to join the Manchester United centre of excellence. So, for me, that was a massive thing. I was fortunate in that my dad had been at Chelsea when he was younger. He'd moved to London when he was 16, so he'd gone through that process and knew that I was still a bit away, even though I was only nine and I was getting really exci ...

Ryan Giggs marked his first match in charge of Manchester United by leaving out David Moyes' two major signings for Saturday's clash against Norwich. Giggs was appointed as interim manager on Tuesday following Moyes' sacking just 10 months after the Scot arrived at Old Trafford. And the 40-year-old immediately dropped Spanish midfielder Juan Mata, who cost a club record £37.1 million from Chelsea in January, as one of six changes to the team beaten 2-0 at Everton in Moyes' final game last weekend. Mata was named on the bench at Old Trafford, but there was no place in the matchday squad for Belgian midfielder Fellaini, who has endured a miserable season following his £25 million move from Everton. Fellaini had been on the bench at Goodison Park, but he was missing as Giggs recalled Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Antonio Valencia, Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck. Mata, Chris Smalling, Alexander Buttner, Jonny Evans, Nani and Darren Fletcher were the players who made way. Vidic, Ferdinand, Cle ...

NEWCASTLE v MANCHESTER UNITED (Kick-Off 3:00 UK & Nigeria) Newcastle's injury woes continue, with Moussa Sissoko joining their lengthy list of absentees with a thigh strain. He joins the likes of Tim Krul, Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy on the sidelines. Manchester United duo Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans are back in training and available to play but Wayne Rooney is out with an injured toe while fellow striker Robin Van Persie remains out. Rafael and Ryan Giggs are doubts, but Alex Buttner is fit, while Juan Mata and Patrice Evra return. Match Preview It's unusual for this fixture, at this stage of the season, not to be one of importance towards the top of the Premier League. However, make no mistake, it's hugely significant for both of these clubs in their current predicament. In Manchester United's rollercoaster season of transition there have been small signs of hope and recovery at times, only to then be followed by another negative result. Their midweek Champions League draw with Bayern Munich defie ...
Manchester United have been handed a potential boost ahead of the Bayern Munich match with Jonny Evans returning to training. Evans has been out injured for two months, injured against Stoke City on February 1 in the 2-1 loss at the Britannia. The centre-back has been nursing his calf injury ever since, but was pictured today back in full training with the first team squad ahead of the Bayern clash. Chris Smalling was back in training too, meaning David Moyes has a full complement of centre-backs to choose from, including Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Phil Jones. Evans may therefore not expect to go straight back into the first team, but a spot could open up for him due to Rafael Da Silva missing training. The Brazilian is hoping to be back to take on Bayern, but should he miss out, either Jones or Smalling could shift to right-back, while Jones remains an option should Moyes decide to pack the midfield. Should the match with Bayern be too soon, Evans is likely to play an important role in the Premier ...
Team News Nemanja Vidic is available after suspension for Manchester United, but fellow defenders Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans remain doubts with respective hamstring and calf problems. Striker Robin Van Persie is still sidelined with a knee injury.
Manchester United manager David Moyes would not confirm the fitness status of defenders Jonny Evans, Rio Ferdinand and Chris Smalling. However, United are definitely without captain Nemanja Vidic, who completes a two-match suspension. City boss Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed Matija Nastasic and Sergio Aguero remain absent with knee and hamstring injuries respectively. Skipper Vincent Kompany returns after his one-match ban.
Getting ready for tonights match ... Who do you think will win? Moyes has refused to reveal whether any of his injured centre-halves will be available for Manchester United's crunch derby. Chris Smalling (hamstring), Jonny Evans (calf) and Rio Ferdinand (back) sat out the 2-0 win at West Ham on Saturday, but manager Moyes was giving no clues away regarding their fitness when questioned on the matter at his pre-match press conference. Winger Antonio Valencia (eye) is a doubt but defender Nemanja Vidic (suspension) and striker Robin Van Persie (knee) are definitely unavailable.

The potential departures of experienced players such Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra added to Nemanja Vidic and the lack of quality in central midfield mean there are some key alterations that need to be implemented. United have a core of quality that requires a few adjustments. Goalkeeper: There are no issues regarding David De Gea at number 1 for Manchester United. Anders Lindergaard provides suitable quality to back up the spaniard. There is no need for change in the goalkeeping department. Defence: United are strong in defence with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling able to challenge for a spot in their favoured centre-back position with the exit of Vidic and perhaps Ferdinand. They will be joined by Jonny Evans and the return of Michael Keane will add depth the central defensive department. At right-back Rafael Da Silva has made the position his own and United could perhaps add an understudy for the Brazilian, but the position does not require urgent attention. Depending on Patrice Evra's decision come the en ...
Manchester United shared the following link and had this to say about it: Javier Hernandez (knee) will miss Saturday's match against West Brom, while Jonny Evans (calf) is unlikely to feature. David Moyes has also revealed that Marouane Fellaini is a doubt with a back spasm, adding: "I've got to check he's okay. It could be a problem."

Last Monday, the official Manchester United website released an article publicising the possible candidates for the role of captain from the season 2014/15. The article consisted of 5 possible candidates: David De Gea, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher. At first reaction, it seemed brutal in seeing Robin Van Persie as a main nominee, but as Leonardo Di Caprio so timely proved on Sunday night at the BAFTAs, something as little as a blown kiss to the camera seals the win for just being that fantastic, even without a prize to showboat at the end of it. Similarly, Robin Van Persie has also proven that a trail leaving the words ‘awe-struck’ visible on foreheads sometimes can be just as phenomenal, even if it means that he may not be the leading man at the end of the tunnel, hand on hips, first to absorb the warmth of the Old Trafford crowd. And then I read: “The opinions expressed in this article are personal to the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of Manchester ...
Manchester United Injury Updates: . Moyes says Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Rafael will be assessed later today but could be available.
Manchester United have released the list of nominees for the next captaincy role, now that it's confirmed current skipper Nemanja Vidic is to quit the club at the end of the season. It's a common that more senior players like Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Ryan Giggs are to follow Vidic out of the club come season end. It might seem strange to others that Robin Van Persie is not on that list of nominees. The nominees are Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones, Darren Fletcher, Jonny Evans and David De Gea.. In your own view, who deserves the famous Red Devil arm-band at Old Trafford once Vidic le
Who shall be the next captain of Manchester United? With the news of our captain Nemanja Vidic leaving us in the summers and well as Rio Ferdinand, who do you think should be our next captain? The options picked by the official Man Utd site are: David De Gea, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Darren Fletcher & Wayne Rooney. And of course, Wayne Rooney is the favourite as of now. What is your choice?
Moyes sees no immediate need to enter the market for a new centre-half. He said:"We've got three at the club who are all young yet all quite experienced,after the World Cup I think England will probably be looking at Chris Smalling and Phil Jones as their next centre-halves, and we have them here at Manchester United and Jonny Evans as well. The big thing we will miss with Vida going is his leadership, his warrior qualities. I do think that Evans, Jones and Smalling have been pushing through for their place though, and that's the way you want it.
Speaking ahead of Manchester United's Premier League match with Fulham at Old Trafford, David Moyes gives a positive update on Phil Jones but rules Jonny Evans and Marouane Fellaini out of action.
News: Rio Ferdinand Rio Ferdinand may yet have a future at Old Trafford, with David Moyes hinting the veteran central defender remains in his plans. Rio had looked a dead cert to leave Manchester United when his current deal runs out in the summer, with LA Galaxy looking the most likely destination. He has played just once in the league since September having fallen behind Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and skipper Nemanja Vidic in the pecking order. But with Evans and Jones in the treatment room after the loss to Stoke, Ferdinand – who is now over a recent knee problem – could soon be back in action. "Rio has made a great contribution, especially in the first half of the season, I played him in nearly all the opening eight to ten games. He was a big part in helping me to settle. "He has competition at centre-half but he is very much valued and looked at as one of the senior players. We will continue to use Rio at the right times and the right moments."

It was a day to forget for Manchester United at the Britannia Stadium as the reigning Premier League Champions fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of a Stoke City side trapped in a relegation dogfight. It was the first time United boss David Moyes was able to start Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie and Juan Mata together since signing the Spaniard from Chelsea, and despite the new and very exciting attacking prowess United have at their disposal, it was defensive frailties which yet again cost them three points. First half injuries to both centre halves Phil Jones and Jonny Evans saw Michael Carrick fill in alongside Chris Smalling. Despite Carrick being a midfielder who plays in a deep role – one thing he certainly isn’t is a central defender – and Stoke capitalised on this. Although there was a huge element of luck with the opening goal after Charlie Adam’s shot from distance took a wicked deflection off Carrick to wrong foot David De Gea; there was nothing wrong with Stoke’s second which was a bli ...
Premier League ROUND UP Manchester United slipped to another defeat as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed his first Premier League win as a manager and Sunderland claimed the north east derby honours. Everton got their Uefa Champions League qualification hopes back on track with a home win over Aston Villa, but Tottenham Hotspur were held by Hull City. West Ham United picked up an important home victory over Swansea City, but Fulham tumbled to the foot of the table after being blitzed by Southampton. Stoke City enjoyed a first league win over Manchester United since Boxing Day 1984 after Charlie Adam's double clinched a 2-1 victory at the Britannia Stadium. Former United striker Mark Hughes' side took the lead in fortunate fashion on 38 minutes when Adam's long-range free-kick deflected off Michael Carrick and wrong-footed United keeper David De Gea. Moments later, United lost a second centre-half as Phil Jones joined Jonny Evans in being forced off through injury. But United responded positively to equalise tw ...
Peter Staunton, a Goal.com International writer had this to say about Manchester United ouster from the League Cup by Sunderland- ''Javier Hernandez pulled the classic gutless move. He took out his shinpads and rolled down his socks. The only other thing he could have done was take off his boots altogether. Those visual indicators tell the manager: "I don't fancy it." David Moyes legislated for Hernandez's shirk-job in the aftermath of Manchester United's penalty shootout defeat to Sunderland in the League Cup by saying the Mexican was injured. Didn't Cesc Fabregas once take, and score, a penalty for Arsenal with a broken leg? Whatever ailment with which Hernandez was hit while celebrating his extra-time goal could have been surmounted. Nonetheless, United's other senior players when the time came were in dereliction of duty. Patrice Evra, Antonio Valencia and Jonny Evans - over 150 international caps between them - not to mention the near 700 United appearances they've made, were content to stand in the ...
Manchester United's desperate season met with fresh degradation on Wednesday as they sensationally lost on penalties to Sunderland in the League Cup semi-finals at Old Trafford. Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, United levelled the tie through Jonny Evans's 37th-minute header, only for Phil Bardsley
Team News Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has been sent for warm weather training to help quicken his recovery from a groin injury. Jonny Evans is a fitness doubt, having been substituted with a back injury in the midweek defeat by Sunderland. Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is without wingers Pablo Hernandez and Roland Lamah due to hamstring and abductor problems respectively. Goalkeeper Michael Vorm is not yet ready to return from a knee operation. Match Preview "Your job now is to stand by our new manager. That is important." They were almost the last words from Sir Alex Ferguson to the millions across the world who claim Manchester United as their team. Those words were cheered by the throngs at Old Trafford who were celebrating yet another title and who reacted to Ferguson's challenge as though they were taking part in some mass pledge of loyalty. Some Manchester United fans have kept to their word, some have not. Football is a fickle business and no club or manager should take loyalty for grante ...

Premier League Jonny Evans admits he took the soft option and headed for the dug-out when a ferocious hail storm caused referee Mark Clattenburg to call a temporary halt to Wednesday night's Capital One Cup tie at Stoke. Evans insisted there was no option - because no-one could see. "It was crazy conditions," said the Manchester United defender. "The wind was blowing hailstones into our eyes. They were the hardest hailstones I have ever felt. "You couldn't keep your eyes open, which meant you couldn't see."
FINALLY US MAN U FAN WE HAV SOMETHING TO SMILE Champions League - David Moyes Manager David Moyes is confident his Manchester United side are good enough to win this season's Champions League. The 1999 and 2008 winners have suffered from indifferent form in the Premier League, but have impressed in Europe and finished top of Group A after a 1-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk. "I think we could be classed as one of the favourites," said Moyes. Another Ryan Giggs milestone Ryan Giggs Ryan Giggs became the 10th player aged over 40 (and the fifth outfield player) to feature in a Champions League match "We'll have to improve in order to progress.

Article on whom to keep and whom to let go...(ESPNFC) After another defeat left Manchester United stagnating in mid-table at the weekend, David Moyes was once again a target for criticism as he continues to struggle to get the best out of a group of players that won the Premier League title last season. There is, however, only so much that Moyes can do sitting in the Old Trafford hotseat. His players must shoulder some of the blame and it is clear that among the unquestionable talent at the club, there is also plenty of deadwood. Reports on Monday suggested Moyes could be ready to wield the axe, so who would escape with their United careers intact and who would be moved on to pastures new? David De Gea One of the best young keepers in Europe, talk that Sir Alex Ferguson was thinking of ditching the Spaniard not long after buying him looks even sillier now than it did at the time.

Manchester United vs. Newcastle United- PLAYER RATINGS! By Azeem On December 7, 2013 In Football News After a poor run of form in the league and losing to Everton FC in an important game during the midweek, Manchester United were expected to go all guns blazing in the game against the Geordies. But no creativity in the midfield made United lose another game 0-1 with scoring no goals in 2 home games this season. Following are the player ratings: David De Gea – 6/10 Couldn’t do much about the goal. But some shaky distributions throughout the game. Wasn’t at his best. Rafael – 6/10 Still didn’t look match fit. Needs to get in rhythm. Did Struggle against Santon who could be a tough player. Nemanja Vidic – 7/10 One of United’s better players, the Serbian centre-half put in a number of crucial tackles and interceptions. Jonny Evans – 6/10 Questionable at times. But did well in tricky situations. Couldn’t distribute well to the fellow team mates. Patrice Evra – 4/10 Its about time Evra calls ...
David Moyes' woes continued as Manchester United were beaten at home for the second time in four days, losing 1-0 to Newcastle United. The Premier League title holders lost 1-0 against Moyes' former club Everton on Wednesday and were beaten again on Saturday by a Newcastle side who picked up their first away league win at Old Trafford since 1972. Yohan Cabaye was the man on target for Newcastle, with the France international scoring after an hour. He calmly finished inside the area after being played in well by Moussa Sissoko to inflict consecutive home league defeats on the hosts for the first time since 2002. Alan Pardew's side had a slice of luck, however, as Vurnon Anita looked to handball an effort off the line at 0-0, before Robin Van Persie saw what would have been an equalising goal ruled out for offside. Moyes made one change in defence, bringing in Jonny Evans to replace Chris Smalling while making wholesale changes in his midfield. Nani, Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley and Adnan Januzaj were all brou ...
Tottenham shook their goal-scoring struggles to twice take the lead, but they could not shake the visitors as a double by Wayne Rooney gave Manchester United a share of the spoils at White Hart Lane by a 2-2 scoreline. Both sides began early working their right offensive flanks. Shinji Kagawa for United and Lennon for Spurs saw the most work in their respective midfields in the first 10 minutes. The game’s first shot didn’t come until the 11th minute, when Lennon popped off a low effort comfortably saved by De Gea. The opener for Spurs didn’t come from open play, but they’ll certainly take it. After a late challenge by Jonny Evans on Paulinho on the edge of the penalty area, Kyle Walker bagged the goal in the 18th minute as he cannoned a low free-kick below the United wall and past De Gea. Just before, Everton goalkeeper and guest NBC commentator Tim Howard had urged De Gea to trust his wall and cover the far end of the goal, but his wall got it wrong as they all jumped above the low blast by Wal ...
PARIS: Manchester United and Real Madrid, with a dozen European titles between them, powered into the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday as in Russia holders Bayern Munich produced a record-breaking show in the snow. Joining United and Real in the knockout stages of Europe's premier club competition were French champions Paris Saint-Germain with five sides - Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City - already qualified. That leaves the identity of the final eight last 16 contenders to be determined at the final throw of the first round dice in mid-December. United produced the performance of David Moyes' short reign as manager since he succeeded Alex Ferguson, who beamed down from Leverkusen's stand as goals from Antonio Valencia, Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, Nani and an own-goal from Emir Spahic left the Bundesliga side bemused.

Super-sub Hernandez heads United to win over Stoke Premier League, Old TraffordManchester United 3 (Van Persie 43, Rooney 78, Hernandez 80) Stoke City 2 (Crouch 4, Arnautovic 45) Manchester United scored two late goals to claim a dramatic but unconvincing 3-2 win against Stoke City at Old Trafford. David Moyes’ side fell behind in comical circumstances as Jonny Evans and Patrice Evra cleared the ball against each other before the ricochet went in off Peter Crouch. United levelled when Robin Van Persie finished after Asmir Begovic parried a Wayne Rooney header, but Stoke took the lead again when, after Phil Jones gave away a needless free-kick, Marko Arnautovic swung it in off the bar. United were booed off at half-time and the second period was a dirge, with no real chances until Rooney met Van Persie’s corner with a fine header. Two minutes later Javier Hernandez headed the hosts ahead for the first time, unmarked as he met Patrice Evra’s cross. Those goals came after Adnan Januzaj was introdu ...

2011: United 1 City 6 Even the most optimistic of City fans couldn’t have been expecting this scoreline when the Blues visited Old Trafford in 2011. On a glorious afternoon, Roberto Mancini’s men inflicted a humiliating defeat on Manchester United as they ran rampant on the Reds’ own turf. Mario Balotelli was quick off the mark with the opening goal, and after Jonny Evans was dismissed the Blues couldn’t stop scoring. A second for Balotelli, a Sergio Aguero strike, plus a late goal for David Silva and a brace for Edin Dzeko ensured that neither set of fans would forget this one in a hurry…

Manchester United's Jonny Evans escapes punishment for off-the-ball incident with West Brom's Markus Rosenberh
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson could hand a start to either Jonny Evans or Chris Smalling at West Ham on Wednesday.
Manchester - Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson hailed goalkeeper David De Gea after his superb late save against Chelsea kept the Premier League leaders in the FA Cup. United led 2-0 after 11 minutes of Sunday's quarter-final but Chelsea hit back to level the score in the second half and the hosts were left hanging on in the dying stages. Chelsea could have snatched a winning goal in the last minute of normal time, when Juan Mata cushioned a high ball and stepped inside Jonny Evans before blasting a shot at goal. However, De Gea intervened, spreading himself to divert the ball wide of his right-hand post and thereby keeping United in a competition they last won in 2004. "It was a very good save," said Ferguson. "I saw the replay and it was terrific at a very important time, because there was no doubt we would be out if they had scored at that time." United had appeared to be cruising into the semi-finals after early goals from Javier Hernandez and the recalled Wayne Rooney put them in control on a w ...
Second-half goals from Eden Hazard and Ramires ensured that Chelsea remains in the FA Cup as a comeback equaled first-half Manchester United goals from Wayne Rooney and Chicharito. The first half was dominated by the Red Devils as Chelsea endured a torrid first 10 minutes, with Chicharito opening the scoring with a header, before Rooney extended the lead with a fortuitous free kick. It was truly a tale of two halves though as Chelsea controlled the second period, eventually getting its just rewards with a stunning effort from Eden Hazard and a smart finish from Ramires The Blues were unable to complete the comeback despite some late pressure. Sir Alex Ferguson chose to retain the bulk of the side that fell to a disappointing Champions League exit on Tuesday, though he made four changes as Jonny Evans, Shinji Kagawa, Wayne Rooney and Chicharito came in, at the expense of Nemanja Vidic, Danny Welbeck, Ryan Giggs and Robin Van Persie. Rafa Benitez, meanwhile, made wholesale changes as only Petr Cech, David L ...

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.

Ashley Young, Paul Scholes and Jonny Evans were also training, meaning Sir Alex Ferguson's squad will be at full strength for their trip to Spain. However, by opting to remain in Manchester for their final training session, as they have done all season, Ferguson was aiming to keep his plans for the game secret.

Manchester United - Real Madrid not all about Ronaldo, claims Evans Ferdinand: Ronaldo will get fantastic reception from Manchester United fans By Oladimeji Ayodeji Dejlas The Red Devils center back believes there is more to Los Blancos than the Portugal star and that both clubs have a lot of expectations to live up to ahead of their clash this week Jonny Evans claims that Manchester United's game against Real Madrid is not all about Cristiano Ronaldo facing his former club. The Northern Ireland international believes that the clash is the highlight of the round due to the history between the two clubs and not just the Portuguese star.

Rooney turns spotlight on rivals February 2, 2013 type:image caption: Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez celebrate the former's winning goal ENDRooney's solitary goal turned the spotlight on Manchester United's Barclays Premier League title rivals after they beat Fulham in a Craven Cottage match interrupted by floodlight failure.

Team News: Nani & Valencia start for Manchester United's clash against Fulham Sir Alex Ferguson gives his two wingers a start with Rio Ferdinand and Jonny Evans returning in defence for the trip to London to face Martin Jol's men
Wayne Rooney's late winner at Fulham helped Manchester United extend their Premier League lead to 10 points. Rooney surged forward after 78 minutes to meet a Jonny Evans long ball and send a cool finish into the far corner for his 10th goal in as many games. The striker had earlier hit the post in an open match in which both teams threatened, with Fulham's Bryan Ruiz also denied by the woodwork. Ruiz also had a header cleared off the line before Rooney won it. In a frantic finale, Fulham were denied an equaliser when United striker Robin Van Persie cleared a Philippe Senderos header off the line. And with the home side exposed as they pushed for a leveller, Javier Hernandez broke clear and only some smart goalkeeping from Mark Schwarzer denied the United forward. The visitors survived the remainder of stoppage time to secure a victory that puts extra pressure on second-placed Manchester City, who play Liverpool on Sunday.

The Mexican international took his tally in Latics clashes to six goals in six games with his pair of clinical finishes separated by half-time. Chicharito also helped to create the first part of Robin Van Persie's double, providing his strike partner with an intelligent pass just before the break. Sixty per cent of fans responding to ManUtd.com's online poll picked Chicharito as their star man, while Van Persie finished as runner-up with 29 per cent.

Fergie Labels Pardew A Hypocrite  Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has aimed some harsh words at Newcastle and Alan Pardew following their dramatic clash at Old Trafford on Wednesday. United eventually triumphed 4-3 in the Boxing Day encounter with Javier Hernandez's last-minute winner handing them victory. The awarding of Newcastle’s second goal resulted in furious touchline reaction from Ferguson as he believed an offside Newcastle player had interfered with Jonny Evans as the defender turned the ball into his own net. The Red Devils manager remonstrated with the match officials and even ventured onto the field to have his say but Mike Dean opted not to mention the incident in his match report. The decision to let Ferguson escape unpunished prompted Pardew to criticise the official and call on the Football Association to ban the United manager for his actions. Ferguson responded by saying that Pardew is amongst the worst offenders when it comes to harassing officials and dredged up an incide ...
Arsene Wenger believes that the FA should have punished Sir Alex Ferguson following his angry confrontation with referee Mike Dean on Wednesday night. The Scot raged at Dean's decision to overrule his linesman and allow Jonny Evans's own goal to stand, despite Papiss Cisse being flagged offside. Ferguson, who also remonstrated with the fourth official, escaped FA punishment for his actions, but Wenger believes that he should have incurred some sort of sanction. "If he didn't behave like he should have done, then yes [he should have been punished]," Wenger told reporters. "Whether it's me or Fergie or anyone else in the world, the rules are the rules. It is not rules for one person and rules for another. It's the same for everybody." "Should you behave like that? No. I did not always behave as I should and you can call that a bad example, yes. So when you go overboard, you have to be punished." Manchester United went on to claim a dramatic 4-3 win over Newcastle United.

How are these clowns seven points clear? |EUROSPORT| How is it possible that a football team as crassly inept as Manchester United can be seven points clear at the Premier League's halfway stage? Despite two largely shambolic displays over Christmas, they are thundering towards 2013 bolstered by a Rik Waller-sized cushion over City. United have 46 points - at this rate they'll finish on 92 - more than any team since Mourinho's Chelsea juggernaut plundered 95 in 2004/05. In theory we are looking at one of the best teams ever. And yet look at them. Really, look at them. Goalkeepers: A highly-promising but error-prone youngster with a dodgy beard who keeps getting dropped for a limited understudy whose only purpose seems to be to erode the other guy's confidence. Defence: The biggest collection of crocks this side of a First World War sanatorium. It comes to something when a papier mache model of Rio Ferdinand has played more games than any other centre-back. Midfield: United fans have been calling for Fergi ...

Avi Creditor: Holden's return to training important, but temper immediate expectations Bolton's American midfielder has returned to training on a limited basis, and while it is a vital step in his progress it is important to allow his comeback to happen organically. About 15 months ago, Stuart Holden returned from a lengthy injury layoff, and the hype machine went into overdrive. Widely thought of as a starting-caliber midfielder in the U.S. national team player pool and one of the brightest Americans playing abroad as winner of Bolton's 2010-11 Player of the Year honors, Holden had spent six grueling months on the sideline after yet another major injury setback before he could step back onto the field. Manchester United defender Jonny Evans' tackle in March 2011 ripped a gash in Holden left thigh about a year after Nigel de Jong derailed Holden's breakout season with a tackle in a Netherlands-USA friendly that broke his leg, once again putting Holden's promise and U.S. fans' collective dream of seeing hi ...

Manchester United made yet another come-from-behind win as they beat QPR 3-1 at Old Trafford. Jamie Mackie gave QPR a shock lead with his second-half tap-in but headers from Jonny Evans and Darren Fletcher turned the game on its head before Javier Hernandez completed the scoring for the Red Devils.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) Manchester United fought back to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-1 on Saturday, provisionally reclaiming top spot while condemning the bottom-placed team to the worst start any Premier League side has made after 13 games. New QPR manager Harry Redknapp was watching from the stands at Old Trafford as Jamie Mackie gave the London club hope of a first win of the season by scoring the opener. But United responded with three goals in less than 10 minutes, leaving QPR roote to the bottom with just four points. Jonny Evans pulled the hosts level before Darren Fletcher marked his first league start in a year with a goal and Javier Hernandez scored a third. United went two points ahead of Manchester City, which is at Chelsea on Sunday. Initially, QPR had a sense of purpose and stuck to its defensive duties with diligence, even though the visitors were assisted by the lackluster nature of United's display. Stand-in manager Mark Bowen might even have had a goal to celebrate after Mackie converted ...

Norwich v Manchester United Team News: Wayne Rooney and Jonny Evans doubts - Daily Post North Wales
Manchester United once again had to come from behind but showed incredible spirit to win 3-2 at Aston Villa with Javier Hernandez the hero. Andreas Weimann struck either side of half time to hand Paul Lambert's team a shock two-goal advantage but Javier Hernandez was introduced at the break to score a brace himself and force the equaliser off Ron Vlaar. Robin Van Persie twice hit the bar in a matter of seconds, leaving it to Chicharito to earn the plaudits by heading in the ex-Arsenal star's free-kick. Chris Smalling started his second successive match after returning from injury due to Jonny Evans' absence and Paul Scholes was asked to dictate the play in midfield. Yet the Reds appeared laboured from the outset in low-key first period, only enlivened by Weimann's strike at the end of the half. Although Michael Carrick had a header from a Van Persie corner comfortably clutched by Brad Guzan early on, the American keeper was not required to make another save until easily handling Wayne Rooney's ambitious l ...

4. How to ruin the the most anticipated EPL match Match: Liverpool vs Manchester United Referee: Mark Halsey Here Halsey got practically every major call wrong. Daniel Agger was hauled down in the box but nothing was given. Jonjo Shelvey chopped down Rafael. Again, no card was given. If these incidents had been punished, the subsequent ones may not have occurred. Shelvey and Jonny Evans both leap into a full-blooded tackle and Shelvey got the ball. His follow-through caught Evans, who then rolled around on the ground. Evans, for his part had jumped in two-footed. Six of one, half a dozen of the other? No, Halsey shows Shelvey red card but Evans gets away scot-free. Another game-spoiling decision. And led to Shelvery's rant against Fergie. Halsey got the Manchester United penalty decision right. Antonio Valencia made the most of limited contact but contact there was. However, Luis Suarez was clearly tripped in the penalty area by Jonny Evans, and nothing was given. Robin Van Persie joined the fun and was l ...

Chelsea need to look at their own players when it comes to explaining Sunday’s 3-2 defeat against Manchester United. Let’s get a few things straight about Sunday’s game at Stamford Bridge. Referee Mark Clattenburg was officiating what is always a feisty encounter between two teams desperate not to lose against one another. We should also appreciate that diving has been on the agenda practically since the season began, with referees now looking to punish simulating players. Clattenburg should be forgiven for brandishing a second yellow card to Fernando Torres after minimal contact from Jonny Evans in the second half. It seems as though everyone forgets that Torres’ first yellow card was for something resembling a drop-kick on Tom Cleverley towards the end of the first half which could have seen the Spaniard receive his marching orders. If Di Matteo is going to be balanced with his criticism, why not point the finger at his striker for an inexplicable foul after Chelsea had got themselves back into ...
Manchester United centre-back, Jonny Evans believes Chelsea and La Roja forward,Fernando Torres took a dive on Sunday.
That's why they call them the Blues Few of us like Monday, but The Fifth Official does, for it brings with it a chance for him to point the finger and laugh. Here he pulls out the pretty, the puzzling and the downright pig-ugly from a week brimming with potential victims. Clatt's life What a good decision it proved for Sir Alex Ferguson to rest Howard Webb and bring Mark Clattenburg in for Manchester United's trip to Stamford Bridge. The Geordie referee played a blinder, infiltrating a classic top-flight match to such an extent that all the talk afterwards was about him and not the football. No wonder Chelsea lodged an official complaint against him post-match, after he'd sent off Fernando Torres for having the temerity to invite Jonny Evans to rake a boot down his shin, reducing them to nine men, then allowing Javier Hernandez's winner even though the Mexican scamp was half a yard offside. All *** broke loose then, as a shower of coins rained down on Chicharito and a steward hit the turf with a knee inj ...
Jonny Evans has backed referee Mark Clattenburg for sending off Fernando Torres in Manchester United's 3-2 win at nine-man Chelsea in what was a controversial encounter at Stamford Bridge.
Manchester United defender Jonny Evans believes that referee Mark Clattenburg was right to send off Chelsea's Fernando Torres for diving
Chelsea ref fury adds fire to United return - 29 October 2012, 11:50 Chelsea have made a formal complaint about the language, reportedly racial, allegedly used by referee Mark Clattenburg to two of their players during the controversial 3-2 home defeat to Manchester United. The dramatic development, which came after a stormy top of the table clash at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, will add fire to Wednesday evening when the two sides meet again in London in the League Cup. "We have lodged a complaint to the Premier League match delegate with regard to inappropriate language used by the referee and directed at two of our players in two separate incidents during today's match," said a Chelsea statement. "The match delegate will pass the complaint to the Football Association. We will make no further comment at this time." Sky Sports News claimed late Sunday that one of the players involved was Chelsea's Nigerian star John Obi Mikel. It was reported by the Daily Telegraph on Monday that Mikel accused Clattenburg ...
Man United beat 9-man Chelsea with Chicharito offside goal, Chelsea accuse ref of racial abuse. Two questionable red cards and an offside goal helped Manchester United to their first win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League since 2002. After an entertaining first half that began with a David Luiz own goal in the fourth minute, a Robin Van Persie goal to put Man United up 2-0 in the 12th minute and a brilliant Juan Mata free kick just before halftime to give Chelsea an injection of confidence, referee Mark Clattenburg made himself the star of the match after a Ramires goal equalized for Chelsea in the 53rd minute. First, Clattenburg showed Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic a straight red when Ashley Young went down as he was breaking towards goal in the 63rd minute. Just five minutes later, Clattenburg booked Fernando Torres for a second time for going down even though Jonny Evans caught Torres' shin with his boot. That got Torres sent off just as Chelsea were preparing to sub him out ...
In the meantime, two definitive decisions are already in on Clattenburg’s performance yesterday: wrong to send off Fernando Torres and wrong to allow Javier Hernandez’s offside winner to stand. It was Mr Muddle day for some of the country’s leading referees at Goodison Park as well as Stamford Bridge, although it should be said this is a bloody hard job they do. But great games – and yesterday's at Stamford Bridge was a great game – deserve exacting officials, and all the drama and controversy cannot compensate for teams suffering from bad decisions. Chelsea were down to 10 men already, with the dismissal of Branislav Ivanovic, when Torres was sent off for a ludicrous second yellow card. They may well have conceded a third goal anyway, but they deserved to do so with 10 men on the pitch, not nine. The beauty of this game before the second red card for Chelsea was that it was so finely balanced. To start: a frantic break-out by Manchester United down Chelsea's vulnerable left flank and two goals ...
Manchester United moved back into the title hunt with a 3-2 Premier League win at Chelsea that was marred by two poor officiating decisions. Chelsea had fought back from 2-0 down and were in the ascendance when Branislav Ivanovic was correctly dismissed for fouling Ashley Young en route to goal. But referee Mark Clattenburg showed Fernando Torres a second yellow card for diving when Jonny Evans caught him with a poorly-timed lunge as the Chelsea striker raced towards goal, the Spaniard apparently punished for overplaying his fall. That error was compounded when Javier Hernandez scored the winning goal from an offside position, as the assistants failed to spot that he was behind the last defender when diverting Rafael’s cross-shot. It was a shame that a great advertisement for the Premier League should be spoiled by poor decisions – many argue that goal-line technology in itself is not enough and that football should adopt tennis-style HawkEye challenges. On this evidence it is hard to disagree. Before ...
