South America is now the home of world class strikers. The best in the world. Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa are Premier League leading lights - the main reason is desire Hunger. It is the word that is consistently used by managers and fellow players. Desire. That is another – as is drive. And passion. And fight. Above all, in fact, it is fight. The highly-charged language chosen to refer to the South American strikers who are dominating the Premier League is increasingly dramatic and spoken in awed terms.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United showed their rivals no seasonal cheer on Friday as they consolidated their positions in the Premier League table with one-sided Boxing Day victories.

City followed suit with a 3-1 success at West Bromwich Albion and United kept pace by beating Newcastle United 3-1, with Wayne Rooney scoring twice and making one. Chelsea continue to lead City by three points, with United seven points further back, while West Ham's loss allowed Southampton, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Swansea City and Liverpool to make up ground in the race for the top four.

Arsène Wenger says Arsenal's solidarity will help the club through difficult spells on the pitch. Disappointing results against Anderlecht, Swansea City and Manchester United either side of the international break have sparked negative headlines ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund. "In the 18 years I have been here I have shown that I can take criticism," said Wenger. "Everybody has the right to have an opinion. What is important is how close we are together inside the club and how much we can respond to people who question our quality Arsène Wenger "Having said that, we have values at this club. The first one is when we go through a difficult patch, we show solidarity. That is a very important one. The second one is that, when you have something to say to each other, we say it face to face. We don’t need to go to the newspapers. "I don’t take [criticism] personally at all... but when you’re from this club, you’re from this club. You’re in or out, you cannot be b ...
Mikel Arteta knows Arsenal must be more ruthless after a defeat to Manchester United that the midfielder described as "not fair".United were 2-1 winners at the Emirates Stadium to move above Arsene Wenger's side in the Premier League table on Saturday. Arsenal lost by the same scoreline at Swansea City before the international break and are down in eighth place after the first 12 top-flight games. Captain Arteta felt the defeat was harsh on Arsene Wenger's side, but realises they must make the most of their dominance in matches if they are to challenge for honours. "I'm shocked," said the Former Everton man. "I think we played our best game this season in terms of what we demand of ourselves - the quality in the way we attacked, how we won the ball back, how consistent we were throughout, the amount of chances we created. "When you are in the box and you can't manage to score in that many situations, you can't expect to win. "It's not fair for the players and the fans. How can I explain the result? I can' ...
THE QUOTE “We’re strong at home. We’ve learned to be patient and to wait for our chances without losing our shape. That will be vital against Manchester United.” - Arsène Wenger THE SET-UP Arsenal v Manchester United. Wenger v Ferguson. Vieira v Keane. Keown’s roar, Rooney’s tumble, Henry’s masterpiece. Tunnel showdowns, heightened tensions, magical moments - this is the glamour game that has it all, and it’s back. No matter what the circumstances, it remains a fixture that demands attention. A fixture that leaps off the calendar. There is no getting away from the fact that this particular clash finds its two protagonists some way off the heights they scaled around the turn of the century. Saturday evening pitches sixth in the table against seventh, with neither side at full strength and both still searching for their best form. But the Gunners have a point to prove. Having gone into the international break on the back of disappointing results against Anderlecht and Swansea City, this mat ...

Defeat for United's Dutch duo Manchester United's Dutch players suffered a shock 2-0 defeat as the Netherlands lost to fast-improving Iceland in Group A of the Euro 2016 qualifiers. Robin Van Persie captained the side and Daley Blind also played the full 90 minutes as the World Cup semi-finalists were beaten in Reykjavik. Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdsson converted a 10th-minute penalty and doubled the advantage before the break. Van Persie had a shot blocked following an Arjen Robben pass and moments later Blind's centre led to Robben spurning another decent chance when he headed wide just before the half-hour mark. Although firing over the bar five minutes after the break, the skipper was unable to inspire his troops on a disappointing night for the Dutch. Blind supplied a couple of dangerous crosses as the visitors chased a comeback, one of which just failed to find a clean connection from Van Persie after an Iceland defender partially intervened. This was the second defeat in the opening three qualif ...

Clyne & Shelvey win England call-ups 2 Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne has won his first England call-up for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia. Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs and Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey are recalled to the squad. But there are only three strikers in the squad, with Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge out with a thigh strain. England play San Marino at Wembley on 9 October before travelling to face Estonia on 12 October. BBC Radio Solent sports editor and Southampton commentator Adam Blackmore on Nathaniel Clyne: "Clyne's biggest strength is his pace, allied to his desire to get forward down the right wing. While he lacks height at set-pieces, his speed makes him hard to get behind and enables him to recover quickly when beaten." Arsenal's Danny Welbeck, Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Liverpool's Rickie Lambert are the only three forwards in Roy Hodgson's 21-man squad. Sturridge has missed Liverpool's last six games since being injured on England d ...
Diego Costa maintains his residence in the heroes column with a hat trick versus Swansea City, while Queens Park Rangers' entire defence earns villain status for a woeful display in a 4-0 loss to Manchester United. HEROES Jack Wilshere's recent performances with Arsenal had brought savage criticism not just from journalists but also from ex-players like Paul Scholes and Tony Adams. After this weekend, everyone now knows why. His display for Arsenal against Manchester City -- powerful, aggressive, incisive and ruthless -- was a reminder of why people were so excited when he broke through in 2008. Wilshere has it in him to dominate the biggest games, to lead his club and his country by example, but he hasn't done it often enough. Saturday's game was his best in months. You shut your critics up by playing like that, not by pleading with them to shut up. Chelsea's Diego Costa might as well just set up camp in this section. Until he gets injured or suspended, he's not going anywhere. Like Cesc Fabregas, also d ...

Burnley, Manchester United draw Manchester United’s record signing Angel Di Maria was unable to inspire his side to victory as the Red Devils were held to a goalless draw by Burnley at Turf Moor. The new No.7 made his full debut for the Red Devils but lasted only 68 minutes as Louis Van Gaal replaced the Argentina international with Anderson. Having failed to beat Swansea City or Sunderland prior to a midweek League Cup humbling at the hands of MK Dons, Van Gaal's men produced another disjointed display and could have few complaints with the result despite being denied a late penalty when substitute Ashley Barnes appeared to handle a shot from Ashley Young. Indeed, Burnley had opportunities to emulate the 1-0 victory they memorably secured when the sides last met at Turf Moor in August 2009, with David Jones coming the closest to a goal when striking the crossbar early on. Sean Dyche's side will surely take heart from claiming a first Premier League point of the season, following defeats to Chelsea and ...
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 ...
Louis Van Gaal has hit out at criticism following Manchester United's opening defeat to Swansea City and maintains the club are set for a "difficult three months."
Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal says he will win the Premier League title in the next three years. After David Moyes took the 2012-13 champions to seventh place last season, Van Gaal has been tasked with rebuilding the Red Devils. However, his tenure got off to a disappointing competitive start with a 2-1 home defeat by Swansea City last weekend, leaving fans begging Van Gaal so strengthen his squad. With money at his disposal and the club's youth players to work with - having shown a propensity to do just that during his managerial career at the likes of Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich - the Dutchman is expected to return United to the top of the English game. In an interview with Telegraph columnist and former United defender Gary Neville, Van Gaal has declared that while it will take time to mould the current squad in his image, by the time his contract expires at the end of the 2016-17 campaign, United will be far stronger. "I have said from the beginning – I have not shouted - ‘We shal ...
Cardiff City are setting their sights on a new defensive transfer target after Manchester United decided to keep Michael Keane at Old Trafford for the new season. The Bluebirds were hopeful of securing a loan deal for the 21-year-old centre-half as they looked to strengthen their defence ahead of the Transfer Window closing on September 1. But after United’s 2-1 opening-day Premier League defeat to Swansea City, Van Gaal has opted to keep the youngster in his thoughts. United, having parted company with Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra, are short of defensive numbers, and Van Gaal sees Keane as a vital squad member. He was full of praise for the England U-21 international during United’s summer tour. Despite the setback, it is thought Bluebirds’ boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may still be looking elsewhere, having watched potential targets in the UK and Europe over the past month. If they were to recruit a new defender, it would Cardiff’s ninth signing of the summer after Javi Guerra, Fede ...
Sturridge's streak, Van Gaal laid bare & Aguero tops scoring charts - Opta's Weekend in Numbers Van Gaal HAS IT ALL TO DO So the International Champions Cup isn't quite the barometer that some people thought it was. Manchester United's serene progress to victory in the United States in July was given a context injection as Swansea City left Old Trafford with all three points on Saturday lunchtime. No team scored more than twice on Saturday and Sunday and if neither Burnley nor Chelsea score three or more on Monday night it will be the first time since 1912 that no team has scored three on the opening weekend. 102 years of hurt. It's not all doom and gloom for Manchester United. There have been three instances in Premier League history of a team losing their opening game and going onto win the league, with United the successful team in each instance. Leicester new boy Leonardo Ulloa scored on his Premier League debut and in doing so became only the fifth player with a surname starting with the letter 'U' t ...
Latest News : Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney more than happy with armband Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney insists that leading the club is something he was born to do. Rooney took on the armband from Nemanja Vidic for the first time in United's opening day defeat by Swansea City. Rooney scored United's goal in the 2-1 loss and, while he admits he did not play well, he has no regrets about taking on the honour given to him by Louis Van Gaal. "I just had a bad game and I was the first to say that when I got into the dressing room," said Rooney. "Only time will tell whether I can be a successful captain but I will certainly be giving everything I can to help this club win trophies." Wayne Rooney "I didn't play well. You have those days. But being captain is always a responsibility I have had in me, especially on the pitch. "It will be a little bit different now off the pitch with new responsibilities. But I have always felt I am a leader on the pitch so it won't be a major difference on the pi ...
United eager to include unwanted Nani as makeweight in deal for Rojo... AND will pay most of flop's wages! MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - AUGUST 16: Dwight Tiendalli of Swansea City competes with Nani of Manchester United during the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester United and Swansea City at Old Trafford on August 16, 2014 in Manchester, England. (Photo by Alex Livesey/Getty Images) Manchester United have held discussions with Sporting Lisbon about including Nani as a makeweight in their attempt to finally land Marcos Rojo.
SERIOUS ISSUES AT Old Trafford Louis Van Gaal has banished Nani, Anderson and Wilfried Zaha from Manchester United’s first-team squad in a brutal show of power, reports Steve Bates in the Sunday People. The 63-year-old Old Trafford chief has turfed the £60million trio out of his inner circle, forcing them to train at different times to the main squad, eat away from first-team stars ­including Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin Van Persie, and excluded them from team briefings and game play strategy sessions. It is a major blow for young England star Zaha and Portugal international Nani who both hoped to play a part under Van Gaal after a difficult campaign when David Moyes was in charge last season. But it underlines the sheer ruthlessness and single-minded focus of Van Gaal, who has made it clear who is a part of his squad and who is not. Van Gaal’s season got off to a miserable start with a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford to Swansea City yesterday – and he was forced to call Nani on to the subs’ ben ...

LOUIS THE DOUBTER. Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal has conceded that his side may not be capable of winning the Premier League title, but insists he knew that before the defeat against Swansea City. Asked if the players at his disposal are good enough to win the title, Van Gaal replied: "That is not the question because I know that before this game. But also with other players it's also a question of if they can play like a team and if they can reach the level." '

Manchester United 1-2 Swansea City: Sigurdsson condemns Van Gaal to opening day defeat The Iceland international struck late on to give Garry Monk's men a famous victory, despite Wayne Rooney cancelling out Ki Sung-Yueng's first-half opener with an acrobatic strike Gylfi Sigurdsson's smart finish saw Swansea Cityclaim a surprise 2-1 win at Manchester United as the Louis Van Gaal era started in defeat. Sigurdsson bagged the winner 18 minutes from time on Saturday as Van Gaal - tasked with improving the fortunes at Old Trafford after David Moyes' disastrous spell in charge last term - endured a day he will want to forget in his opening Premier League fixture. The Dutchman's 3-4-1-2 system did not appear to suit United despite being used in pre-season and they found themselves behind when Ki Sung-Yueng scored from 20 yards just before the half-hour mark. Van Gaal, known for his tinkering, swapped to 4-4-1-1 in the second half and it appeared to be the tonic for United's response, led by new captain Wayne R . ...

English Premier League 2014/15 SEASON BEGINS No fixture is considered easy as the English Premier League kicks off today with 20-time champions Manchester United facing Swansea City and Arsenal hosting CrystalPalace in a London derby. Both United and Arsenal will be in the spotlight for the most part of the season following their dramatic campaigns last season. United, who were aiming to defend the title they won in the 2012-13 season, had flopped under manager David Moyes and had finished the season 7th in the log, a position that was as strange to the Red Devils as falling to their ‘noisy’ neighbours twice in the season; the second being a 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford. Arsenal also had one of their most embarrassing campaigns in recent time, losing on wide margins to Liverpool and Manchester City, and finishing fourth, again, after staying atop the league for most weeks of the season. Unlike how Arsenal started the league last season when they lost 3-1 to Aston Villa, they are favourites to win today ...

Manchester United's pre-season performances have been encouraging but rehabilitation under new manager Louis Van Gaal begins in earnest on Saturday when they kick off the new Premier League season at home to Swansea City. Dutchman Van Gaal, whose managerial haul includes league titles in the Netherlands, Spain and Germany, faces arguably his toughest task to date in restoring United quickly back to the top of English football's pecking order. United's 20th league title in Alex Ferguson's farewell season was followed by a slump to seventh - their worst showing in recent years as Ferguson's successor David Moyes found himself horribly out of his depth. The only way is up, it seems, under Van Gaal, though how fast and how high depends on him quickly implementing his own style on a squad that still looks thin on a quality in several areas despite 56 million pounds ($93.52 million) of spending. A home lunchtime clash with Swansea, starting their fourth season in the Premier League with long-serving defender Ga ...
Manchester United v Swansea City: Van Gaal set for Premier League bow 14 August 2014 17:46 For the second season in a row, Manchester United kick off their Premier League campaign against Swansea City and under a new manager. After 27 years with Alex Ferguson at the helm, the Old Trafford club dismissed successor David Moyes just 10 months into his contract as they careered towards a seventh-placed finish in the Premier League last term - their lowest in the competition's history. Ryan Giggs saw out the season in the United hot seat on an interim basis, but the onus now falls on former Netherlands coach Louis Van Gaal to lead the club out of what are - by their own exalted standards - dark times. And the experienced coach, who led his country to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Brazil earlier this year, has brought a new sense of optimism to the 20-time English champions.
Only 2 days to go and it all starts off here in the Haworth Arms with Manchester United taking on Swansea City at 12:45, can Louis Van Gaal bring the glory days back to United? Then its Arsenal vs Crystal Palace at 5:30, can Arsenal get that title they crave so much ?

Swansea City will be boosted by the return of wingers Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge for the start of the Premier League season.The duo were absent for the Welsh club's closing pre-season friendly against Villarreal, which ended in a 3-0 defeat, but are back in contention for the trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Saturday. Dyer's wife went into labour prior to Saturday's match and the couple were then able to celebrate the arrival of their new son Shea. Routledge, meanwhile, missed out with a minor foot injury, but is back in training after having an injection to cure the problem. The pair face renewed competition for places in Garry Monk's starting XI this season following the arrival of Ecuador World Cup star Jefferson Montero.

Louis Van Gaal takes charge of Manchester United at Old Trafford for the very first time on Tuesday night, when the Red Devils' play their final pre-season friendly against Spanish giants Valencia. The veteran Dutch coach is expected to stick with the 3-5-2 formation which served United so well on the club's tour of the United States. The Premier League giants secured the International Champions Cup last week, beating AS Roma, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and fierce rivals Liverpool along the way. Indeed, the team Van Gaal picks to start against Valencia on Tuesday evening is likely to be the same side that starts against Swansea City in United's opening match of the 2014/15 Premier League campaign on Saturday afternoon. But, for any players on the fringes of the first team along with those reportedly on the Old Trafford axe list, this will be one final chance to impress Van Gaal before the season gets underway.

Rory Mcilroy says he is playing "the best golf" of his life and enjoying a summer beyond his "wildest dreams" after securing the US PGA Championship. The Open champion, 25, landed his second major in as many months - and says he will celebrate at Manchester United's opening Premier League match. "I've got a week off now and I'm going to enjoy it," McIlroy told BBC Sport. "I don't know if I can parade both the Claret Jug and the Wanamaker Trophy at Old Trafford on Saturday. I'll try!" McIlroy, a United fan, will watch them play Swansea City fresh from winning his fourth major. He said the manner of his latest victory was particularly satisfying. "I gutted it out," McIlroy, who wrapped up victory in the gathering gloom by one shot, explained. "It was different from my previous major wins. "To win my second major this year and a fourth by the age of 25, it's just incredible. "I'm going to celebrate and share it with the people who are close to me. I'll be back home in Northern Ireland at the end of the week. ...

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.

Tottenham Hotspur have entered the race for Southampton Dejan Lovren. Mauricio Pochettino is eager to add the centre-back to his squad, and is prepared to rival Arsenal and Liverpool for his signature, according to the Daily Star. Arsenal are looking at as being a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen, who is expected to join Manchester United, while Liverpool hope landing Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from Southampton will tempt the 24-year-old to follow their footsteps. But Tottenham have other ideas, and aim to continue their recent history of signing Croatian players, having previously signed Luka Modric, Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka. If Lovren did move to White Hart Lane, he would most likely be a regular and form a defensive partnership with Michael Dawson. Meanwhile, Tottenham look set to add another addition to their defence, as Ben Davies is expected to sign from Swansea City for £8million. The left-back, who has impressed over the last two years in the Premier League, will be Pochettino’s fi ...
We’re counting down to the new campaign with plenty of hope and expectation. Louis Van Gaal has boldly stated that he wants “to make history” as the new manager of Manchester United, while his assistant, Reds legend Ryan Giggs, urged fans “to keep supporting us and the good times will be back soon”. With the big kick-off for 2014/15 less than two months away – against Swansea City at Old Trafford – both men will soon be aiming to make good on their promises.

Chelsea Linked With £25m Move to Sign ‘New Didier Drogba’ byMr ComfortJune 1st, 2014 Stamford Bridge side chase Liberty Stadium ace. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has earmarked a move for Swansea City forward Wilfried Bony as he seeks to find an ideal partner for incoming signing Diego Costa according to the Daily Star. Read more Chelsea transfer news. The Ivory Coast international has long been compared to fellow countryman, and Blues legend, Didier Drogba and this could well act as an incentive for the former Vitesse Arnhem man to pursue a move to the west London club this summer. Bony netted 25 goals in his debut season in the English top tier, 16 of which came in the Premier League, and the powerfully built forward has more than proven himself able to make an impact at the highest level. Perhaps tellingly many of Bony’s goals came against top teams last term with the 25 year old netting against Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Everton.

Manchester City will look to compound Arsene Wenger's woes when they visit the Emirates Stadium this weekend, knowing a win would take them closer to the Premier League title and inflict a potentially fatal blow to Arsenal's chances. Wenger's side have capitulated in recent weeks and a win for Manuel Pellegrini's team in London would almost certainly leave the battle for the Premier League crown as a three-way race between City, Liverpool and Chelsea. Arsenal, humiliated 6-0 at leaders Chelsea and held to a 2-2 home draw by Swansea City after conceding a last-minute equaliser on Tuesday, would have hoped for an easier match to revive their ailing title bid. City lie third with 66 points, three behind Chelsea but with two games in hand, and they will look to build on their impressive 3-0 win at bitter local rivals Manchester United on Tuesday.

Scholes takes a dig at Arsenal - 26 March 2014, 13:12 Once one of Arsenal's chief tormentors on the pitch, Paul Scholes dissected the Gunners with a withering verbal assault after a home draw with Swansea City on Tuesday ended any hope of a late Premier League title charge. The former Manchester United midfielder was known for letting his boots do the talking during a glittering Old Trafford career but when asked to pick over the pieces of Arsenal's season, he held nothing back. "It was a typical week for Arsenal really," Scholes, who was working for Sky Sports as a pundit, said after the Gunners drew 2-2 with Swansea City, three days after a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Chelsea in Arsene Wenger's 1 000th game in charge. "They capitulated at Chelsea and it seems to be a similar theme again at the top teams. "It happened at Liverpool. They conceded six against Man City and for one reason or another players seem to go missing... "It seems like they go on the pitch with no discipline. "It's as though four, f ...

Liverpool - Swansea City Preview: Sturridge closing in on Van Nistelrooy scoring record. Daniel Sturridge will become only the second player in Premier League history after Ruud Van Nistelrooy to score in eight consecutive games if he finds the net for Liverpool against Swansea City on Sunday. The former Manchester United striker currently holds the record for the longest Premier League scoring streak - a run of 10 games between March 2003 and August 2003 - but Sturridge is closing in on the Dutchman’s achievement and could equal it at Old Trafford March 16.

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 ...

England international Rooney is poised to sign a £300,000-a-week contract to remain at Old Trafford until 2018.

Man United in crisis? Ex-players, fans and pundits have their say. January 2014, and Manchester United are booed off by their own fans, heaping more pressure on manager David Moyes, after losing in the third round of the FA Cup to Swansea City. Defeat was one thing, but the manner of the display – so lacking in the attacking verve associated with Moyes' predecessor – was quite another. At the same stage of the competition in 1990, a beleaguered Alex Ferguson famously – allegedly – escaped the sack from United by the finest of margins: a Mark Robins goal against Nottingham Forest gave Ferguson a reprieve. Three years later, Bryan Robson hoisted the Premier League trophy aloft, Robins’ goal paving the way for Ferguson to build the greatest dynasty English football has ever known. Robson had signed for United for a then British record fee of £1.5m in September 1981. Then, the club still held a place in the nation’s hearts in the wake of the 1958 Munich air crash, which claimed the lives of 23 pe ...

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher says David Moyes' tactical nous was key to Saturday's win over Swansea City.
After three consecutive losses, Manchester United have finally managed to *** a win to lift the spirits of David Moyes and the fans. The roars are still rumbling at Old Trafford. There were deep concerns ahead of the game, United having lost to Swansea just last weekend, sending them out of the FA Cup with their heads held low. It was speculated that Swansea would be able to defeat David Moyes’ side once again. Well, Swansea City defended well for the first half, holding Manchester United to a 0-0 draw going into the locker room at half time. Unfortunately, they were unable to do the same in the second half. Goals from Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck in the early part of the second half led the Red Devils to the win at Old Trafford against Swansea. The first goal came from Valencia’s shot off the rebound of Gerhard Tremmel, who made the save against Kagawa’s header but couldn't reach the second shot. Welbeck put away the second goal with half-an-hour left to seal the deal. But what made the di .. ...

The Reds started brightly and could have taken an early lead through Nemanja Vidic, who volleyed over from six yards, before the impressive Adnan Januzaj struck the crossbar with a delicious free-kick moments later. With just over half an hour on the clock, a lovely passing move on the edge of Swansea's area led to Darren Fletcher slicing high and wide, before Welbeck dragged another effort wide of goal, missing the first half’s best chance following some neat approach play from Valencia and Rafael. David Moyes didn’t make any changes at the break, though his side returned for the second half with renewed urgency and immediately scored via Valencia, who slotted in at the far post after Shinji Kagawa’s header was ...
Adnan Januzaj proved pivotal once again as Manchester United beat Swansea City 2-0 at Old Trafford to register a first win of 2014. *

GOAL! Manchester United 1 (Wellbeck, 59) Swansea City 0 AND .. Antonio Valencia has scored a league goal at Old Trafford for Manchester United for the first time in 700 days.
David Moyes is under increasing pressure at Manchester United after three successive defeats, but rumours suggest his replacement has already been lined up. Moyes has endured a tough start at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils particularly struggling for results at home. United have lost to West Brom, Everton, Newcastle, Tottenham and Swansea City at home this season, form which was unheard of in the Sir Alex Ferguson era. And despite reportedly having a huge amount of cash to spend this month, it seems Moyes is insisting on waiting until the summer Transfer Window to bring in new recruits, which is again frustrating the United fans who can see that the team needs new blood now, not just in six months. Whilst Sir Alex Ferguson was apparently the man who chose Former Everton boss Moyes as his successor, reports coming out of Italy suggest that the legendary ex-United manager has already sounded out a potential replacement for Moyes, should his recent struggles continue – which could be seen as a surprise ...

Roberto Mancini in for Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez has become unsettled by limited opportunities at Barcelona Mancini wanted to buy winger Sanchez after he caught the eye for Chile in the 2010 World Cup finals.

City have struggled for creativity from the flanks this year followingthe sale of Adam Johnson to Sunderland and Scott Sinclair’s failure to hold down a first-team berth following his move from Swansea City last summer. Without natural width, City have been predictable at times this season and Mancini is to make rectifying that a priority.

Manchester United have made a sensational £30m bid for Swansea City ball boy, Charlie Morgan, for his ability to hold on to a football under pressure.
Manchester United's outfield players will not be giving David De Gea the benefit of the doubt and nor will his manager. Photograph: Carl Recine/Action Imnages David De Gea is the latest No1 to squirm under the harsh glare that shines upon Manchester United goalkeepers. Fresh debate has emerged after two points were dropped on Sunday at Tottenham Hotspur, when the Spaniard weakly punched a Benoît Assou-Ekotto cross, allowing Aaron Lennon to set up Clint Dempsey, who equalised deep into added time. Since moving from Atlético Madrid in the summer of 2011 for £18.9m, De Gea has found that the theatre of dreams can be a nightmare arena for United stoppers. The argument centres on whether his lightning reflexes and supreme shot-saving ability compensate for his continuing vulnerability under the high ball and the weak parries that lead to goals, as they did in the 2-1 win over Liverpool the previous Sunday and in the late December 1-1 draw at Swansea City. According to Gary Neville, who as a former trusted l ...

This is a process I have to go through. I am glad I have managed to play after three months. It is nice to be on the pitch and playing games. Hopefully I can."

Fulham will be desperate to find some fresh form in the New Year when they visit West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday lunchtime. Martin Jol's team are in relegation shape after winning just one of their last 12 Premier League games to fall to 14th position in the table. Remote Record Saturday's defeat by Swansea City at Craven Cottage was a latest setback and the home fans booed their team off at half-time in the game. Jol therefore knows he needs to ease the pressure with a win against a West Brom club who first brought him to England as a player in the 1980s. But it will not be easy at The Hawthorns, where the Baggies have won seven games this season to match the record of defending champions Manchester City. Steve Clarke's side did lose at table-topping Manchester United at the weekend in what was their fourth defeat in seven league games in part of a slide to seventh spot. But West Brom have still enjoyed an excellent season and Clarke will want to avenge the 3-0 setback at Fulham in September.

Swansea City hold Manchester United to a draw: from This is South Wales
Swansea City .1. Vrs .1. Manchester United . (Full Time) Wayne Rooney did not have the best of games come to think about it i personally think it was one of his worst games as United struggled to overcome a brilliant Swansea City team... Swansea at times could have scored more and take all 3 points at the Liberty Stadium. Patrice Evra gave United the lead on the 15th minuet with a header from a Robin Van Persie Corner. Michu scored the equalizer on the 29th minuet with brilliant passing from Swansea where Agustein had his shot saved by De Gea only for the Spaniard to tap in the rebound for his 13th League Goal of the season which now makes him the Leagues top scorer. Sir Alex Ferguson was going crazy on the touchline at Rooney and subbed him soon after. The last time i seen Alex go that crazy was in the Champions League Final a few years ago where United lost to Barcelona and that saw the end of Cristiano Ronaldo's time at the club... Could the same happen here?? In the end a draw seemed to be the correct ...

Leeds United have signed Swansea City central defender Alan Tate and West Brom midfielder Jermone Thomas on loan until January. 30-year-old Tate joined up with his new teammates today (Nov 22) to train for the first time in readiness for Saturday’s Elland Road clash with Crystal Palace. He joins the club having made a handful of Premier League appearances this season. Tate was a trainee at Manchester United and spent a short spell on loan at Royal Antwerp, but he went on to have two loan spells with Swansea before joining the club permanently in February 2004.

Sorry to friends if I hurt you guys feelings yesterday~ I was so emotional about Chelsea FC drawing with Swansea City fc.. But know this, I do not like to make fun of, especially by Manchester United fans, coz they only bark when they win, and they always win a controversial win, suited by the name Mancheater United~ We lost the top spot to them, but enjoy it while it last, coz it won't be long until we triumphed into the in the league again~ Roberto Di Matteo did a tactical change which is disadvantage in my opinion yesterday, whereby instead of subbing Fernando Torres., he subbed Moses, thus losing the possession of midfield.

Carlos Tevez lifted reigning champions Manchester City to victory on Saturday which will leave manager Roberto Mancini happy to walk away with three points and move just one point behind Premier League leaders Chelsea. After a low-key first hour, Carlos Tevez stunned the crowd at Etihad Stadium with a 25 yard strike past keeper Michel Vorm who could not stretch far enough. The Swans from Swansea City would not die though. After two injuries in regulation time, City had to kill off 12 minutes of injury time, but they would pull through. With Manchester United playing Chelsea tomorrow, Manchester City could find themselves in sole position of second place in the Premier League or they could sit one point back of leaders Chelsea. Either way, City will look ahead to an easy match next week against West Ham while cross-town rivals Manchester United will have a tough match against Arsenal. Just thought I'd inform you.
