Manchester United Team news ahead of the trip to the Loftus Road this weekend!!! INJURY UPDATE!!! -Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie is a doubt for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash against QPR. -The Dutchman was withdrawn during the defeat to Southampton with an ankle injury but Louis Van Gaal has told MUTV this is only a minor problem, suggesting that his countryman could still be involved at Loftus Road. "It's not worse. Only Van Persie is maybe injured but it is a minor injury. I don't think it's a great problem." Louis Van Gaal. -Ashley Young remains in the treatment room with a hamstring strain which is likely to keep him out for a few more weeks. THE PREVIOUS MEETING!! -We meet again: United are unbeaten against QPR since New Year's Day 1992 and earlier this season the Reds strolled to a 4-0 win at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and maiden United strikes for Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria. .
::: Match Review - Manchester United v Southampton ::: United 0 Southampton 1 Manchester United suffered a first defeat in 12 games and surrendered third place in the Barclays Premier League after Southampton secured a shock 1-0 win at Old Trafford with Dusan Tadic's solitary strike. The Reds controlled large chunks of the game but ultimately struggled to break down an organised Saints team that has increasingly realistic hopes of earning Champions League qualification this season. Louis Van Gaal made seven changes to the XI that started against Yeovil Town in the FA Cup third round, notably with Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind both returning from injury while Luke Shaw also lined up against his former club for the first time since joining the Reds in the summer. Midweek signing Victor Valdes took his place on the bench, although Colombian striker Radamel Falcao was absent from the matchday squad. The visitors started brightly and almost broke the deadlock in the first minute when England international Nat ...
Video: Van Gaal explains Falcao absence Louis Van Gaal has revealed why Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao was not involved in Sunday’s disappointing Barclays Premier League defeat to Southampton at Old Trafford. The Colombian had started the Reds’ last five matches in all competitions but was left out of the squad to face Saints. But as Van Gaal explained in his post-match Press Conference, the striker was omitted due to various selection dilemmas and not injury. Thanks to our colleagues at MUTV, you can now watch the manager's full response to queries about Falcao's absence by watching the video above.
Louis Van Gaal rued missed chances following Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to Southampton on Sunday, but accepted the visitors defended well in the Barclays Premier League encounter at Old Trafford. READ MORE:

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 ...
Fellaini flourishes in Van Gaal philosophy Marouane Fellaini believes his Manchester United team-mates can extend the club's unbeaten run in the Barclays Premier League and climb the table over the important Christmas period. The Belgian midfielder scored the opening goal in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Stoke City as the Reds claimed a fourth consecutive win, and says confidence and a familiarity with Louis Van Gaal's philosophy are paying dividends. “We know each other a lot better and we know the manager and the staff,” he told reporters after the midweek match at Old Trafford. “We know the philosophy of the manager. We are training hard as well so we have to continue like that. It is good to win four games in a row. We have to continue like that, to continue to play and to win. It’s important for the confidence.” United are currently fourth in the Premier League table and remain adrift of leaders Chelsea. While the Reds are focused on reclaiming a place in the top four and a return to the UEFA Cham ...

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

A new month begins this weekend with a meeting of sides who share a London borough. Club historian Rick Glanvill and club statistician Paul Dutton supply the derby details… TALKING POINTS Welcome home to Chelsea’s brilliant travelling fans, publicly hailed for their vociferous support at Old Trafford and New Meadow by Didier Drogba as well as an emotional former Blue, Juan Mata. The undefeated league leaders and top scorers are seeking to extend a perfect start to the domestic campaign at Stamford Bridge. This is our first Barclays Premier League game on the Fulham Road in almost a month and, for once, Jose Mourinho and his side have the chance to extend the advantage over the Citizens to nine points before they tackle the Manchester derby on Sunday. City lost again at home to Newcastle in midweek and have recorded just two clean sheets in their last 13 matches. The team closest to the Blues’ coat-tails, Southampton, also face a test at Hull City, who have drawn with Arsenal and Liverpool in success ...
Cristiano Ronaldo has paid Angel Di Maria a huge compliment going into today’s Barclays Premier League clash with Chelsea. The world player of the year believes that Manchester United have finally found the man to fill his boots at Old Trafford. Since United sold Ronaldo to Real Madrid for a then world record £80 million they have the lacked the goals, assists and speed on the counter attack that Ronaldo once offered. But the Portugal ace believes they have acquired this skill set in £59.7 million summer signing Di Maria and he’s excited to see what his former team mate can do in today’s clash with Chelsea. Ronaldo and Di Maria became friends during the four years they spent together at the Santiago Bernabéu, to the extent that Ronaldo pleaded with the Champions League winners not to let him leave the club this summer. Di Maria now wears Ronaldo’s old shirt number at Manchester United and so far he’s produced some incredible performances in the illustrious number seven worn by Bryan Robson, G ...

Van Gaal and Mourinho focused on victory Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have played down the significance of their impending reunion at Old Trafford by insisting Sunday’s match between Manchester United and Chelsea is all about securing three points in the Barclays Premier League. Mourinho was Van Gaal’s assistant at Barcelona in the 1990s and has gone on to become a successful manager in his own right with a host of top European clubs. This weekend, the pair will meet in opposition dug-outs for just the second time following their duel in the 2010 Champions League final. Though neither manager could resist the temptation to speak positively about one another while addressing the media, both were keen to concentrate on the game and the challenges involved... Van Gaal on Mourinho: "I don’t know him as a manager because I am never there. I know him as a person and as my assistant manager. Maybe you know that I am always a controversial person and a lot of media has written about that. I am a little ...
Preview: Manchester United vs Chelsea Date, time: Sunday 26 October, 16:00 GMT. Scene setter: Louis Van Gaal’s men have shown great promise in recent weeks, particularly in three consecutive wins at Old Trafford, though United are yet to face an opponent as formidable as Chelsea. Jose Mourinho’s men are currently top of the Barclays Premier League with 22 points from 26, rendering them favourites for the title. Form guide: United have recorded three wins, three draws and two defeats in eight league matches this term. The Reds’ last outing was Monday’s 2-2 draw at West Bromwich Albion , where second-half goals from Marouane Fellaini and Daley Blind secured a point from a difficult game at The Hawthorns. Meanwhile, Chelsea visit the Theatre of Dreams on the back of a 6-0 rout of Maribor in the Champions League and an impressive 2-1 win at Crystal Palace last weekend. The Blues are also unbeaten against United in six matches, a run that stretches back to October 2012. Team news: Michael Carrick was o ...
Manchester United v CHELSEA: BIG MATCH STATS AND FACTS William Hill: 24th October 2014 Manchester United have won only six of their last 22 Barclays Premier League games against Chelsea. Chelsea have kept clean sheets in their last two Premier League games at Old Trafford. They have not kept 3+ clean sheets in a row there since a spell of five between 1968 and 1972. United have had a man sent off in two of their last three Premier League encounters with Chelsea. The last man to score a goal in this fixture (at Old Trafford) was Juan Mata, playing for the Blues. Angel Di Maria has assisted a goal in four of his last five Premier League games for Manchester United. Cesc Fabregas has been involved in eight goals (one goal, seven assists) in eight league games for Chelsea. Robin Van Persie has scored six Premier League goals against Chelsea but all of them have come at Stamford Bridge. Only 14 players have started for Chelsea in the Premier League this season, a smaller spread than any other team, while Manch ...
Carrick eyes Chelsea return Michael Carrick insists he is over his injury "nightmare" and hopes to return to action on Sunday when Manchester United host Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea at Old Trafford. The 33-year-old suffered ankle ligament damage on the same day Louis Van Gaal arrived at the Aon Training Complex in July, forcing him to undergo surgery that has ruled him out for the first-team so far this term. But, having sat on the bench for Monday's 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, Carrick is close to making his much-anticipated comeback and can't wait to get back amongst the action with his team-mates. "It's your worst nightmare as a footballer to be out for so long and this is the longest I have ever been out," the Reds veteran told manutd.com. "I have never really had to deal with big injuries before, so this was something new for me. "The timing of the new manager coming in and me getting injured on that first day wasn't ideal, but that is something that I have got ove ...
Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has suggested Juan Mata and Paddy McNair will start Sunday's Barclays Premier League fixture against Everton. Spanish schemer Mata is favourite to replace suspended skipper Wayne Rooney in the no.10 role while McNair is set to retain his place after an impressive debut against West Ham last weekend, with Phil Jones not yet fit. The boss is hoping the injury situation clears up over the international break but is looking forward to seeing how his side performs against the Merseysiders at Old Trafford. "Juan Mata has played very well in his [Rooney's] position," stated Van Gaal at the pre-match Press Conference. "I have to choose. I will miss Wayne because he is the captain of the team but Mata can also play very well. "We still have three central defenders injured so he [McNair] shall play. He is the only player who can play in the right-sided defensive position. I chose him last week and he was very good. It's difficult for a player like him to maintain that level ...
Louis Van Gaal has 10 players unavailable - nine injuries plus the suspended Tyler Blackett - for Saturday's Barclays Premier League match against West Ham United at Old Trafford. Chris Smalling has joined fellow centre-backs Jonny Evans and Phil Jones on the injured list.
Ped Guardiola thoughts on MUFC and Luie Van Gaal Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has warned Manchester United they can't afford his best players and claimed the likes of Arjen Robben, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thomas Muller don't want to leave for the Barclays Premier League anyway. United manager Louis Van Gaal had the three Bayern stars on his initial hit list at Old Trafford but summer moves for the trio never really got off the ground. Asked this afternoon if he had to say no to Van Gaal, Guardiola nodded and said: 'They [United] didn't have enough money.
Giggs defends youth policy after Welbeck sale Ryan Giggs insists Manchester United will never abandon the club’s tradition of developing young players and turning them into first-team stars, despite the recent sale of Danny Welbeck to Barclays Premier League rivals Arsenal. The 23-year-old England international and former Academy graduate swapped Old Trafford for the Emirates Stadium on transfer deadline day with Colombian hotshot Radamel Falcao effectively replacing him in Louis Van Gaal’s squad. While it is always sad to see a local lad moving on, particularly one who has been with the club since he was a child, Giggs has quashed suggestions the Reds have given up on a famed youth policy that allowed him to graduate from the Class of ‘92’. “United will never change,” Giggs explained at Soccerex, an annual conference that has brought more of football’s movers and shakers to Manchester. “The history of the club is to play exciting football, give youngsters a chance and keep to its traditio ...

Tom Cleverley says Manchester United are "raring to go" against Swansea as the Reds kick off the new Barclays Premier League season on Saturday. Louis Van Gaal takes charge of his first competitive game as the Swans visit Old Trafford for the day's early start and Cleverley, like the rest of his team-mates, is desperate to begin the campaign with a victory. Winning on the opening day doesn't guarantee a successful season – the Reds won 4-1 at Swansea last term and went on to finish seventh – but Cleverley senses an opportunity to build momentum from the off. "We can't wait to get going against Swansea and look to put right the wrongs from last year," he told manutd.com. "This club has always been renowned for bouncing back from sticky patches and that's one of the reasons it's so loved around the world. "We started against Swansea last year but away; this time it's at home and I'm sure the fans will be the same as us: raring to go. It'll be the manager's first competitive game and I'm sure it'll be a ...
Barclays Premier League starts this Saturday, as Manchester United open the season against Swansea City at Old Trafford.
From our local columnist : THE PATH TO GLORY – PART I The air surrounding the upcoming Barclays Premier League isn’t the coolest of air to breathe, especially when one visualizes the strengths of the teams at the friendlies. It’s very rare here in Cameroon seeing a fan not supporting the Premiership trophy for his team (even if you know it is impossible for AFC Wimbledon, it is the Barclays, we all know anything can happen), but a common voice roving all around “Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool”. Who will it be? Who has that jet fuel to propel an almost invincible victory at such a peak period in the history of football? My views expressed here are not based on the fact that I have blue blood running in my arteries, but from consistent study and evaluation, examining all positives and odds. If you ask me even on the last day of the League with Chelsea at the bottom, I’ll still say, “The Blues gotta win it”. Why? The very imagination surrounding players, fans, members of the p ...
Shaw targeting the title Luke Shaw cannot wait to run out at Old Trafford as a Manchester United player for the first time as he targets Barclays Premier League glory with his new club. The 19-year-old is set to face Valencia on Tuesday night in the final fixture before the campaign starts on Saturday against Swansea City. "As a kid, it’s a dream to play at Old Trafford," he told MUTV . "It’s one of the biggest arenas in the world, you would say. "To know it’s going to be my home ground is something special. I can’t wait to get my first touch on the pitch just to relish it." When asked if everybody must be feeling positive after a fine pre-season, Shaw insisted regaining the title is on the players' agenda after a disappointing campaign last time out. "You have got to be positive and, for me personally, I have come here to win trophies," he asserted. "It is something everyone wants, not just me. Everyone in that dressing-room is looking to do it. "We want to win the Premier League. Obviously there ...
Marouane Fellani’s World Cup Campaign has practically become one big Barclays Premier League audition after it emerge that the new Manchester United Manager Louis Van Gaal has instructed the Club to sell him. Louis Van Gaal has told associates Fellaini is ‘not a United type of player’ and has instructed Chief executive Ed Woodward to sell him before the beginning of the season. Old Trafford sources have also revealed that Coach Van Gaal has been quite clear about who he wants and doesn’t want and has told Ed Woodward already. Well, i think i agree with Van Gaal, Fellaini is really not the kind of player Manchester United need..
Arsenal to host Palace on opening day Arsenal’s first game of the 2014/15 Barclays Premier League season is at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, August 16. The Gunners then travel to Goodison Park to face Everton, before finishing the month with a trip to newly- promoted Leicester City. Arsène Wenger’s side host Manchester City on September 13, before taking on Tottenham Hotspur in the first North London derby of the season two weeks later. Seven days after that they face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Boxing Day fixture will see Arsenal host Queens Park Rangers at Emirates Stadium, before travelling to Southampton on New Year’s Day. The Gunners are away at Manchester City (January 17) and Tottenham (February 7) at the start of 2015, while April will see them host both Liverpool and Chelsea. Arsenal finish their campaign with a trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United before hosting West Bromwich Albion on the final day. Scroll down this page for the full draft fixture list. To add *** ...
Toni Kroos could still end up in the Barclays Premier League after claims Chelsea are ready to join the bidding if he becomes a free agent next year. A proposed move to Manchester United may have collapsed, after new manager Louis Van Gaal decided against pursuing their interest, but the Bayern Munich midfielder remains at loggerheads with club bosses over renewing a contract that is entering its final 12 months. Even an attempt to end conjecture he may be Old Trafford- bound left the door open for other clubs to start drawing up wage offers to try and tempt him away this time next year. ‘There has been a lot of speculation, but I won’t be going to Manchester United,’ he said. ‘I can tell you for sure I will be playing for Bayern Munich next season.’ According to sources in Munich, his refusal to commit himself to Bayern beyond the one remaining season on his current contract has alerted Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who would welcome the chance to add the 24-year old’s goalscoring flair from ...
UK REPORTS: 'SERIAL WINNER' OFFERS WELSH WIZARD NUMBER 2 POSITION! Soon to be announced Man Utd boss Louis Van Gaal has offered Ryan Giggs the job of assistant coach. The pair met at a secret house in Holland Wednesday afternoon. Giggs thereafter rushed back to England in time to watch the Under-21s lose the Barclays Premier League title they were defending 2-1 to Chelsea at Old Trafford. Zambia legend Charles Musonda's whiz kid Charly Musonda junior, the youngest player on the pitch at 17 stroke Chelsea's equaliser on 22 minutes with an amazing Lionel Messi like solo effort after the Utd reserves had led through Tom Lawrence set up by James Wilson (Both Utd players were featured by Giggs in the seniors 3-1 win over Hull City with Wilson bagging a brace). Chelsea scored the winner through Lewis Baker 11 minutes from time to complete a league and FA Youth Cup double. Chelsea beat Fulham in the Cup final played over two legs with the gifted Musonda netting a goal in the first leg. Van Gaal may be confirmed ...
LONDON EVENING STANDARD Sam Allardyce was in defiant mood over his uncertain future at West Ham and insisted his record speaks for itself. A bullish Jose Mourinho was left wondering what might have been on his Chelsea return and pondering his summer options after a Barclays Premier League- concluding win at relegated Cardiff. Fulham manager Felix Magath criticised the lack of fighting spirit shown by some of his players in their Premier League survival bid. Adam Lallana wants to be challenging for the title and playing Champions League football, but the England international insists that does not necessarily mean he will leave Southampton this summer. MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS Louis Van Gaal wants his 'last' managerial job to end in glory at Manchester United. And that means major upheaval at Old Trafford - with no one safe from the axe in the Dutchman's pursuit of perfection. Manchester City hero Samir Nasri laid it on the line for the snipers by saying: "The best team won it!" Manuel Pellegrini has reveal ...
Jones hurt against Hull Phil Jones suffered an injury blow in the first half of Manchester United's final Barclays Premier League home game with Hull City. The defender, who started at centre-back alongside Chris Smalling, hurt his shoulder when colliding with Maynor Figueroa as he attempted to reach an Adnan Januzaj corner. With the World Cup finals on the horizon, England coach Roy Hodgson will be anxiously awaiting an update on the problem, which led to Jones heading straight for the tunnel. "He's gone to hospital and we will just have to *** it," explained Giggs. "But it does not look great. "I'm just saying that the reaction, he asked to come off straight away, whether it's precaution or not, from a player's point of view, you know if it's bad. Hopefully it's not too bad." The injury presented substitute Nemanja Vidic with a chance to step into the breach, to a rousing ovation, as he said his farewells to Old Trafford ahead of a summer move to Inter Milan.
In his 83 games for Chelsea Gianluca Vialli scored 40 goals, but his time at Chelsea was about much, much more than hitting the back of the net regularly. He came to Chelsea and the Barclays Premier League to experience the unique atmosphere, and fell in love with the Chelsea fans and English football in an instant. It’s a love that he still feels today. By the time he left Chelsea in 2000, he’d written himself into Chelsea folklore after taking over as manager and adding four trophies to his goal haul. Each one celebrated with the same passion he showed after scoring. Barclays popped round to his house for a cup of tea and found a man who can’t help but get animated when he talks about Chelsea. In the film he tells us why he considered himself an extension of the fans, how it felt to score the winner at Old Trafford and why sportsmanship means so much to him…
Voting is now open for Manchester United's Player of the Year and there are plenty of contenders for the Sir Matt Busby trophy. David De Gea has just been named as the Reds' star man during March and has enjoyed a fine campaign, with an impressive tally of 19 clean sheets so far. Several stunning saves have added to his growing reputation and he has arguably established himself as the best goalkeeper in the Barclays Premier League. He'll face stiff competition from Wayne Rooney, who could match Cristiano Ronaldo's achievement of winning the award three times. Notable feats this season include passing the 200-goal mark and moving up to third in the club's all-time scoring charts. He has also picked up three Player of the Month awards, most recently in December. It's been a breakthrough year for Adnan Januzaj. The 18-year-old has had a rapid rise to stardom following two goals on his first start, away to Sunderland, and looks to be one of the most exciting young prospects at Old Trafford in years. Another n ...
Man United deny rumours Beckham and Qatari royal family are poised to buy out club for £2bn after Glazer family 'lose interest' Manchester United have rubbished suggestions the Glazer Family have lost interest in the club and a £2billion Qatari bid fronted by David Beckham is poised to take over. According to reports, Beckham and his 'Class of '92' teammates Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and the Neville Brothers are involved in a bid funded by the Qatari royal family. They have approached the Glazer family - who own 90 per cent of the Old Trafford club - on a number of occasions and the price remains the only stumbling block t had been suggested in The Sun that the Glazers have become disillusioned with running the club as they lurch from one disaster to another under David Moyes. United find themselves seventh in the Barclays Premier League, having just suffered back-to-back 3-0 home defeats to rivals Liverpool and Manchester United, and have been drawn with Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals o ...
Wayne Rooney has admitted that rivals are no longer afraid of coming to Old Trafford anymore because United are simply not good enough. Asked why they had lost a sixth Barclays Premier League match Trafford this season - more than in the previous three campaigns - Rooney said : 'I don't know but it's not good enough.' 'We can't lose six homes games in a season we've to put that right and make this a place teams fear again. 'We know we've to respond. It's a bad night for us all but we've to move on.'
Manuel Pellegrini's City underlined their status as kings of Manchester after they brushed aside David Moyes' United 3-0 with alarming ease at Old Trafford. Edin Dzeko scored after just 42 seconds to put City ahead and the big striker struck again after the break before Yaya Toure rounded off yet another miserable night for Moyes. Further questions will surely be asked about Moyes' ability to bring the glory days back to United. There was no fortune about this victory from Pellegrini's team, who are now three points off the top of the Barclays Premier League with two games in hand on Chelsea. If anything, it was a minor miracle that City did not win by four or five. David Silva, Toure, Fernandinho and Samir Nasri overran and outclassed a weak United midfield and Dzeko - a surprise starter ahead of Alvaro Negredo - did the rest up front. It seems, after all, that Pellegrini had a point when he said there has been only one club in Manchester this year. United lacked confidence, tempo and cohesion. There was ...

Mata's derby mission Juan Mata says he is relishing his first experience of a Manchester derby and is determined to play his part in making it a memorable night for everyone connected to the Reds. With Robin Van Persie out injured, the Spanish international seems set to start behind Wayne Rooney in attack after the pair impressed together in the 2-0 victory at West Ham on Saturday. The triumph at Upton Park marked a return to winning ways in the Barclays Premier League and given that United's last league game at Old Trafford ended in defeat to arch rivals Liverpool, Mata wants to give the fans something to celebrate on Tuesday evening.
David Moyes is confident that he will not be sacked despite a woeful debut season in charge of Manchester United. United suffered their latest disappointment in a wretched season on Sunday when they lost 3-0 to old foes Liverpool at Old Trafford. That defeat left United seventh in the Barclays Premier League, 14 points adrift of the top four with just nine matches remaining. It is understood the United board are not considering replacing Moyes at this moment in time, but the crucial support of the club's fans will surely disappear if results and performances do not improve. Moyes came out fighting against suggestions he is living on borrowed time, telling a Press Conference ahead of Wednesday's Champions League last-16 second leg against Olympiacos at Old Trafford: "My future has not changed one bit. "I have got a great job, I know exactly the direction I want to go in." Moyes said he had not had any discussions with the board about his future, but he remains convinced United will stick by him. Recent con ...
Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart will face no further action from the Football Association following his confrontation with Hull's George Boyd. England international Hart clashed foreheads with Hull substitute Boyd during a furious exchange in City's 2-0 Barclays Premier League win at the KC Stadium on Saturday. Hart was booked by referee Lee Mason for his involvement and the FA has confirmed that - in line with the governing body's own rules - it considers the goalkeeper to have been dealt with. The FA, however, is still to make a decision on Boyd after pictures appeared to show the Scot spitting in Hart's direction. The FA is studying Mason's report before determining whether to take further action, although Hart said after the game he did not feel he had been spat at by Boyd. The flashpoint occurred when Boyd was denied a penalty after claiming to have been fouled by Hart. It has also not yet been decided whether City captain Vincent Kompany could face further disciplinary action for his reaction to ...
David Moyes believes his Manchester United players are capable of putting Sunday's defeat to Liverpool behind them and producing a stirring Champions League comeback against Olympiacos. The Reds must quickly forget the disappointing Barclays Premier League setback at home to Brendan Rodgers' side in order to focus on overturning a 2-0 deficit to the Greek champions, who have retained their title since the first leg, on Wednesday. Moyes insists his side are capable of doing that and has asked for more of the same support from the fans as United go out "all guns blazing" at Old Trafford. The manager told reporters: "The players are capable of turning it around. We're all desperate to put things right and make sure we play better to give the supporters here something to shout about. "They shouted [against Liverpool] and we didn't give them anything on the field. When we went to Greece, the Olympicos fans played their part, so hopefully our fans will roar us on. "We have to go for the throat to get the win. W ...
Steven Gerrard declared that Liverpool are ready to win their first Barclays Premier League title in 24 years after the Merseyside club embarrassed Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford. Gerrard scored two penalties and Luis Suarez added a late third goal as Liverpool rolled United over, prompting home striker Wayne Rooney to admit to one of his worst days in football.
Gerrard's goals in the game meant he became the highest-scoring opposition player at Old Trafford in Barclays Premier League history,
PREVIEW : United v Liverpool Date, time and coverage: Sunday 15 March, 13:30 GMT. The match will be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK. Follow manutd.com's live blog and MUTV Online's exclusive radio commentary. Match highlights will be available on MUTV Online from midnight GMT. Form guide: United’s assured 3-0 win over West Brom at the weekend will have done much good after only one win out of five in February. It wasn’t so much the result as the manner of it that has renewed confidence ahead of Sunday’s crunch clash, as the Reds brushed aside Albion with poise and confidence. Liverpool, on the other hand, are currently riding the crest of a Luis Suarez-Daniel Sturridge wave and are second in the league, seven points behind leaders Chelsea with a game in hand. It has been five years since Liverpool arrived at Old Trafford with a genuine chance of winning the title and longer still since United faced up against their old foes so far off the Barclays Premier League summit. However, it won’t dilute ...
SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI: Man United boss, David Moyes expects the club's board to consider offering Robin Van Persie a new contract after the striker expressed his desire to stay at Old Trafford. Van Persie has been linked with a move away from United following rumours that he was unhappy with life under Moyes. Liverpool star , Daniel Sturridge has been named Barclays Premier League player of the month for the second time this season. The 24-year-old striker won the award after scoring five goals and producing two assists in February. Meanwhile, West Ham’s Sam Allardyce has won manager of the month award, beating Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho, Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers and Hull City’s Steve Bruce. Allardyce, who guided his club to mid-table with four straight wins last month, has received the award for the fifth time in his career. Uli Hoeness has resigned as Bayern Munich president and chairman in the wake of his conviction for tax evasion.Hoeness was found guilty of evading taxes worth £22.5m ...
MATCH PREVIEW West Bromwich Albion will be aiming to claim a double over Manchester United when the teams meet at the Hawthorns on Saturday lunchtime. The Baggies stunned the title holders with a 2-1 triumph at Old Trafford in September, but the trend since then has been one of declining fortunes for the Midlanders. The subsequent 21 Barclays Premier League matches have yielded only two victories and the club have handed the reins to Pepe Mel in a bid to preserve their top-flight status. Just one point separates Mel's men from the bottom three with 18th-placed Sunderland having a match in hand. The visitors do not have any relegation issues to concern themselves with, but David Moyes' charges are in unfamiliar territory. Since the advent of the Premier League in 1992, United have finished in the top three every season, and yet this time around they sit seventh. It has been a campaign of inconsistency for the Old Trafford outfit, who have at times strung promising runs together - as evidenced by a six-matc ...
David Moyes faces a logistical nightmare this summer as he plans an unprecedented overhaul of Manchester United’s under-achieving squad. Moyes is understood to want up to eight new signings to revive the struggling Barclays Premier League champions after a disastrous season. Rio Ferdinand will follow Nemanja Vidic and Anderson out of Old Trafford, and there are serious question marks over the futures of Patrice Evra, Robin Van Persie, Shinji Kagawa, Nani and Javier Hernandez. However, implementing such a large turnaround of players will be massively complicated by the demands of the World Cup, the increasing possibility that United could be involved in Europa League qualifiers, and the club’s pre-season tour of the USA. United target Toni Kroos has already stated this week that he will not discuss his future at Bayern Munich until after the World Cup, and Moyes is likely to face a similar scenario with many of the other players he wants to sign. United’s exclusion from next season’s Champions Leag ...
CITY AND UNITED COUNT THE COST OF MISSING OUT ON CHELSEA STAR HAZARD... As the race for Eden Hazard’s signature hotted up at the start of summer 2012,1 by 1 the 2 Manchester clubs withdrew,1 more reluctantly than the other. Man United&their manager Sir Alex Ferguson simply decided the young Belgian was a little too ‘Willo the Whisp’ for his own good. 'We tracked him for a long time&thought long&hard about following the interest right through,' an Old Trafford source revealed. 'It was clear that he great ability with the ball but we did have a reservation. 'We just weren’t sure that he was going to be physically strong enough for the Barclays Premier League. 'It was either him or Shinji Kagawa. In the end,we plumped for Kagawa.' At Man City,the issues were different. Roberto Mancini&his coaching staff were convinced of Hazard’s worth but not the money – in the region of £170,000-a-week - they would have to pay him on top of a transfer fee to French club Lille upwards of £32M. 'It was a really ...
PREDICTION TIME guys!! Matchday Cardiff Kickoff:29/1/2014 time) Form guide: Four defeats including the recent 3-1 reverse at Chelsea, compounded by a penalty shoot-out exit in the Capital One Cup against Sunderland only two days later, has made it a tough start to the year for Manchester United. However, David Moyes and his players will be buoyed by the new signing of Juan Mata and will be looking to secure an important victory at Old Trafford against Cardiff. Rooted to the foot of the Barclays Premier League and in desperate need of points, the Bluebirds will not be relishing the tough trip to M16. The Welsh outfit have lost their last two league games against West Ham and Manchester City but will have been given a boost by their away wins over Bolton Wanderers and especially Newcastle United in the FA Cup. Ins and outs: Michael Carrick looks set to miss this encounter after sustaining an ankle injury against Sunderland and Nani is still sidelined with a hamstring problem. However, United could welcome b ...
Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed Manchester United can still win this season’s Barclays Premier League. His bold prediction came as Juan Mata signed for £37million and Wayne Rooney looked set to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.
Are you sure, Jose? Arsenal boss Wenger questions Mourinho's decision to sell Mata to rivals United Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has questioned Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's decision to sell midfielder Juan Mata to the Barclays Premier League champions Manchester United. The Spain playmaker is expected to complete his move to Old Trafford this week after undergoing a medical at the club's Carrington training base. United are pressing forward with the £37million deal after making a dreadful start to life under David Moyes, which sees them languishing in seventh place in the league - six points off the Champions League spots.

Manchester United could be without star striking duo Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney for their Barclays Premier League encounter with Tottenham at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
EPL Update: Midweek 18 stats- Ahead of this weekend's action there are some intriguing statistics to whet the appetite, including why Dimitar Berbatov and Jermain Defoe like playing on Boxing Day, why Theo Walcott is looking forward to faceing West Ham and why even Luis Suarez will have his work cut out to help Liverpool get one over on Manchester City. Thursday 26 December Hull City v Manchester United | Hull City have conceded only three goals in eight Barclays Premier League home fixtures this season, which is the best home defensive record in the top flight. The last time this fixture was played Wayne Rooney scored all four goals in a 4-0 win for the Red Devils at Old Trafford in January 2010. Manchester United have won 16 of the last 17 matches they have played on 26 December, with the defeat away to Middlesbrough in 2002 the exception. Hull's only previous Barclays Premier League meeting on 26 December was a 5-1 defeat at Manchester City when then-manager Phil Brown did the half-time team talk on t ...
More At The Empire Of Manchester United By HaYtHeMoViC 17 Preview: United v West Ham Date, time and coverage: Saturday 21 December, 15:00 GMT. The match will not be televised live in the UK, so follow the action via manutd.com’s live blog and MUTV Online’s radio commentary. The game will be shown in full on MUTV from midnight matchday. Form guide: United start the festive fixture programme of four Barclays Premier League outings in a week-and-a-half having won the last three games across three competitions. The defensive unit has excelled during this good run, keeping clean sheets in the wins over Shakhtar Donetsk, Aston Villa and Stoke City. The Hammers have won just once in their last eight league matches, but the stirring late comeback that knocked Tottenham out of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday will have provided a welcome boost. That said, the east London outfit have failed to score in their last five visits to Old Trafford. Ins and outs: Wayne Rooney missed Wednesday’s win over Stoke, but Da ...
Moyes has revealed that Rooney missed the Capital One Cup clash against Stoke due to a groin injury. He hopes Rooney is available to feature over the christmas period, with West Ham up next in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday at Old Trafford. [Official Manchester United Website] -M.L.
Looks like the THEATRE OF DREAMS (I mean OLD TRAFFORD) is almost becoming an ARENA OF NIGHTMARES. Two straight home defeats at Old Trafford, the first of it's kind in eleven years, and i believe things are really getting bad. Hunch. maybe, (just maybe oh) for the first time in God-knows how many years, Man United might not qualify for Europe next season. And if you are a United fan, this should ruffle some nerves. Mr David Moyes I've always believed that our team is in transition and also believed that you should be given a free hand to operate, but i also believe that you should consult a little bit and try to step up your game, because gradually fans and supporters are becoming fed up with your excuses. It is "Un-United" of us to go a four winless journey in the Barclays Premier League. I'm just sad!;
United 1 Arsenal 0 Robin Van Persie's superb header accounted for Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal and catapulted Manchester United firmly into the title race on a tense afternoon at Old Trafford. In a game of few chances, the Dutchman's first-half header from a Wayne Rooney corner made the tangible difference between champions and pace-setters, but the foundations for success were built on a magnificently dogged defensive display from David Moyes' men. The United manager opted to field Phil Jones in a withdrawn central midfield role alongside Michael Carrick, safeguarding against the Gunners' advanced midfield threat, and the move almost totally stifled the visitors' creativity in central areas. A forward four of Van Persie, Rooney, Antonio Valencia and Shinji Kagawa, meanwhile, offered United plenty of attacking menace. A cagey opening to the game yielded plenty of possession for United, but the clear mutual respect shared by the sides meant a dearth of chances. When United forged ahead, it was w ...
A review of Sunday's action in the Barclays Premier League, including shock defeats for Man City and Tottenham. Robin Van Persie downed old club Arsenal to blast Manchester United back into the Premier League title race with a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford as David Moyes enjoyed his biggest win as Red Devils manager. Van Persie rose unchallenged to guide home Wayne Rooney's 27th-minute corner to spark scenes of jubilation at Old Trafford and silence the taunts of the visiting fans. On another amazing weekend, in which Chelsea's home draw on Saturday was followed within 24 hours by shock defeats for Tottenham and Manchester City, United have now closed to within five points of Arsenal, who suffered their first league defeat since the opening day of the season. Indeed, six points now separate the first eight in the table, with Liverpool and Southampton now Arsenal's closest pursuers.
'Well, they have beaten Borussia Dortmund away, to go with victories over Liverpool, Tottenham and Napoli. Yes, they lost to Dortmund and Chelsea, but I think it just needs to be accepted now that Arsenal are an excellent team and look capable of challenging for trophies. They have another big game on Sunday at Old Trafford but perhaps the focus on what we can hope to learn should be on Manchester United instead.' 'In contrast to Arsenal, United have not taken a big scalp for David Moyes yet in the Barclays Premier League. They drew with Chelsea earlier in the campaign before losing to Liverpool and Manchester City but this is a contest in which traditionally they have done well. Slowly but surely, United are finding their rhythm under Moyes and they go into the contest on the back of an eight-match unbeaten run. Yet it is not unfair to say Arsenal will be the best side they have faced since losing to West Brom on September 28.'
Ashley Young has been branded a "diver and a cheat" by Real Sociedad's Markel Bergara, who was booked for bringing the Manchester United down for a penalty in midweek. United boss David Moyes says he rejected the chance to sign Mesut Ozil because he did not believe the club needed him. THE TIMES Jose Mourinho says the Premier League is laughing at Chelsea by making them play West Brom today, while other teams who have been in European action get an extra day's rest. Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool's top priority in the January transfer window must be signing players capable of instantly improving their first team. Daily Mail Ryan Giggs has scoffed at the idea that Arsenal are favourites for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash at Old Trafford and says the title race will only properly begin in the New Year. Three men, including a former private investigator at the firm hired by Tottenham during their failed bid for the Olympic Stadium, have admitted to 'snooping' on Karren Brady and other senior figure ...
Arsenal have won at Old Trafford three times in the Barclays Premier League era and have won the title in 2 of those seasons (97-98 & 01-02)
Chris Smalling believes Manchester United must be considered favourites for this weekend’s blockbuster encounter with Arsenal in the Barclays Premier League. “We are going into the game with a lot of confidence,” Chris exclusively told manutd.com. “We drew with Real Sociedad in the week but we had a lot of chances to win the game and I think we have gained a lot of confidence from our run of late. We are playing at Old Trafford and really looking forward to it. “I don’t think there are any must-win games at this stage but it is still obviously a massive game. We are at home and we have to be the favourites to win. We have to take the game to them and show that we are the team that wants to win and close the gap.” “We will look at the videos and see what they are doing well. As a defence, we will then work on things to minimise their impact but we won’t think about it too much. As a whole team, they are playing very well. We will find out their negatives and weaknesses, then try to punish ...
United coming good – Pallister Gary Pallister is backing Manchester United to respond to the pressure of Sunday’s “must-win” Barclays Premier League showdown with leaders Arsenal at Old Trafford. Having fallen eight points adrift of the Gunners following a faltering start to David Moyes’ reign as manager, United have stabilised their position over the last month. An eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions has boosted morale, even if it has not made much difference to their position in the table. This weekend’s clash offers the chance to land a heavy blow, and, after collecting only one point from those tough early-season encounters with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, prove the Red Devils will be among the major contenders as usual next spring. And Pallister is expecting a response. The former United defender, who was supporting the Manchester United Foundation Chevrolet Trax eBay auction, said: “Sunday is a bigger game for United. The pressure is heaped on them. “We cannot ge ...
Manchester United team news: Robin Van Persie is set to return for Manchester United's Barclays Premier League encounter with Stoke at Old Trafford. The Holland striker missed the Champions League win over Real Sociedad with a combination of niggling injuries, but has recovered and could partner Wayne Rooney. Danny Welbeck (knee) and Tom Cleverley (calf) are unlikely to figure as United look to record an 11th successive home win against the Potters. Provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Rafael, Smalling, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Fabio, Valencia, Nani, Fellaini, Carrick, Giggs, Anderson, Young, Zaha, Januzaj, Kagawa, Rooney, Van Persie, Hernandez. *aaa
Man Utd n their ojoro:The world of refereeing is still in shock at the revelations by former Barclays Premier League referee Mark Halsey of his personal association with Sir Alex Ferguson. Halsey admitted it in his soon-to-be-released book. The comments by Halsey have led to claims that Ferguson may have had undue influence on referees during his reign at Old Trafford.
Lucas Leiva hailed the impact of Liverpool forward Luis Suarez after the No.7 punctuated his return to Barclays Premier League football with a two-goal haul against Sunderland. The Uruguayan was in swashbuckling form alongside Daniel Sturridge at the Stadium of Light on Sunday, converting at the back post twice via assists from the Englishman. His match-winning performance followed the news that Suarez had become a father for the second time last week; now Lucas is anticipating another effective season from his teammate. The Brazilian told the Liverpool Echo: "Luis has just become a father again and for him to celebrate with two goals, I am very happy for him. "He is showing again just how good he is. He is a world-class player and it is so important to have players like that if you want to fight for good things this season. "Hopefully he will have another fantastic season for us like he did last year. "Luis showed today with his performance that he is really committed to the team and to the club. He just ...

Fellaini shines bright at the centre of Manchester United's midfield By IAN LADYMAN PUBLISHED 18 September 2013 Peculiarly, the official UEFA team sheet had Marouane Fellaini starting on the left-hand side of Manchester United’s midfield at Old Trafford. European Football’s governing body may run this competition, but Michel Platini and his friends don’t get to pick the teams. Not yet anyway. So it was, therefore, that United’s big summer signing began the night in the position where we will see him most, the base of central midfield. Certainly there was something reassuring about the sight of Fellaini and Michael Carrick at the heart of United’s rather traditional 4-4-2 formation (4-1-3-2 if you want to be fancy). It was rather like looking at the bolt on the back door. Without wishing to vandalise Sir Alex Ferguson’s legacy, United have long been short in this area. Too often they have spent long periods without the football and while that may win you a weak Barclays Premier League it will n ...
Dion Dublin believes Wilfried Zaha will seamlessly acclimatise to life at Manchester United - as long as the new recruit adopts the right mentality and attitude to training. 44-year-old Dublin knows exactly how hard it is join the Reds from a lower league club, having moved to Old Trafford from Cambridge United in 1992 after manager Sir Alex Ferguson plucked the towering striker from the depths of English football on the advice of U’s boss John Beck. Today, Zaha is following a similar path by swapping the Championship for the Barclays Premier League following his recent transfer from Crystal Palace. And when asked what it’s like to move up a division, or four in his case, Dublin was typically insightful in his response. “It is pretty scary, I won’t deny that,” he told MUTV. “It took me about three or four months to realise that I had moved from Cambridge United, who were in the fourth division, to Manchester United, who were the biggest club in the world. “Sir Alex was the person who wanted ...

Antonio Valencia: Having swept the board at the 2011/12 end-of-season awards, the Ecuadorian was handed the iconic no.7 shirt at United, an honour reserved for a special few. His form dipped a little last term, but a vast improvement at the business end hints at a bright future under Moyes. Ashley Young: Although i .. ...

David Moyes has completed his first signing as Manchester United manager after the Barclays Premier League champions confirmed the arrival of defender Guillermo Varela. The 20-year-old Uruguayan is moving to Old Trafford from Atletico Penarol, with United's official website reporting an undisclosed fee. Moyes, who is new to the job after replacing the retired Sir Alex Ferguson will be able to view Varela in action immediately as he is in Uruguay's squad for the Under-20 World Championships in Turkey. Varela, who played just one senior game for Penarol, is a full-back and will provide competition for the likes of Rafael and Fabio da Silva, Patrice Evra and Alexander Buttner. Moyes does not officially take up office at Old Trafford until July 1 but has been familiarising himself with the club ever since his departure from Everton was confirmed last month.

Ruud van Nistelrooy has described his fellow Dutch striker Robin Van Persie as 'top class' and acknowledged the devastating impact he has made at United since arriving from Arsenal. Van Persie collected his first Barclays Premier League winner's medal and the Golden Boot after adapting instantly to life at Old Trafford. Former Reds hitman van Nistelrooy, speaking ahead of the Red Heart United Legends match against another of his old clubs, Real Madrid, also feels that his ex-colleague Wayne Rooney is at his best when playing up front. "Robin made a massive impact in his first season," van Nistelrooy told manutd.com. "Right from the beginning. He’s been a great signing and it ended with him winning the league. "He’s a very good player in general. He scores the goals but, in nearly every goal that United score, he is a part of it with an assist or something else. He adds so much to the attacking play and will be very proud to win his first Premier League medal. "I think he is definitely an example of a ...
LikE FaTHer LikE SoN Manchester United’s U21s lift Barclays Premier League trophy Manchester United have tonight won the U21s Barclays Premier League after a thrilling 3-2 comeback against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford. After going into half time 2-0 down, Warren Joyce’s side came out in the second half and put in a brilliant display including a double from Larnell Cole including a dramatic winner late on. It means that the last game of the Ferguson era is his U21s winning the title with a dramatic comeback at Old Trafford. How fitting. The U21s have done incredibly well to win the title given that they have not had a recognised striker since January and Adnan Januzaj put in a a fantastic performance isolated up top despite it not being his natural position. It means that David Moyes will walk into a Manchester United with the champions of the Premier League, champions of the U21s Premier League and the fourth best U18s team in the country.

Manchester United’s Champions League heartbreaker Luka Modric still has his heart set on a move to Old Trafford. Real Madrid star Modric smashed in a wonder goal to help the Spanish champions beat United on a controversial night of European drama in Manchester a week ago. Now it has emerged that the 27-year-old Croatia midfielder still harbours dreams of a move back to the Barclays Premier League with United. Modric was high on the wishlist of United boss Sir Alex Ferguson two summers ago as he tried to replace Paul Scholes. But United were put off by the prospect of another summer of haggling with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, with whom they clashed over the purchase of Dimitar Berbatov in 2008. Modric eventually left White Hart Lane for Real in a £33m deal last summer but has not been a guaranteed starter in Jose Mourinho’s team and his goal at Old Trafford last week was only his second of a difficult season. He is not in a rush to quit Real but did let it be known when in Manchester last week th ...

PREVIEW: United vs Real Madrid Date, time and coverage: Wednesday 13 February, 19:45 GMT kick-off. Live on Sky Sports. Also follow it live on manutd.com with text and radio commentary. Form guide: For all the talk of Real Madrid's domestic struggles, with Jose Mourinho's side sitting in third place in La Liga, the recent form has hardly been disastrous. A 1-0 defeat at Granada was a shock but that's the only reverse in the last 10 fixtures. Comprehensive thumpings of Celta Vigo, Valencia, Getafe and Granada all came during that run. United's last defeat came in the Champions League dead rubber against CFR Cluj in early December and four wins on the spin have set things up nicely for the Bernabeu, helping to extend the lead at the Barclays Premier League summit to 12 points. Last meeting: A 4-3 win at Old Trafford ultimately proved fruitless with Real progressing 6-5 on aggregate but it was a compelling game that, legend has it, caused Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to fall in love with football. Ronaldo h ...

Welbeck savours big win Danny Welbeck enjoyed both the historical and current context as Manchester United beat Liverpool for the eighth time in nine Barclays Premier League meetings at Old Trafford. It was no Sunday stroll for the Mancunian striker and his team-mates, but after an industrious 90-minute shift in the Reds’ attack, he welcomed the fruits of his side’s labour. “Liverpool are our all-time rivals and it [the match] is a great occasion for both cities,” Welbeck said. “Obviously I know what it's like, being a Manchester lad growing up through the ranks. It's been drilled into us ever since I was a little kid. Beating Liverpool is really big for us and I'm delighted to get the three points.” Welbeck felt Sir Alex Ferguson’s tactics worked a treat, certainly in the first period when Liverpool were often pinned back and United took the lead through “a great team goal” by Robin Van Persie in the 19th minute. “We had our game plan set up and I think it really worked well in the fi ...

Paul Scholes believes there is a history to United’s rivalry with Liverpool ensuring that the match hasn’t lost its lustre, despite the fact that the Anfield club are far from being considered title contenders this season. Liverpool come to Old Trafford on Sunday and, even with an ever-evolving hierarchy in the Barclays Premier League, this remains a highlight of the fixture calendar. The challenge from Manchester City across town is undeniable as the two clubs fight for English football’s top honours.

Graham Poll: How much are referees influenced by Sir Alex Ferguson? So, does Sir Alex Ferguson influence the Barclays Premier League through his relationships with and behaviour towards match officials? Undoubtedly, Yes. Fans, players and managers have alleged, alluded and openly accused referees of being influenced by his mindgames and in doing so only serve to prove that Ferguson, as usual, has won as they have fallen under his spell. Ferguson often uses his Friday morning Press Conference to understandably talk about Manchester United’s forthcoming match, and all too often the referee is mentioned. I refereed United 57 times in my career. Thirty of those were at Old Trafford and I can say with a great deal of certainty and 100 per cent honesty that I was never in any way affected by those comments. Ferguson is quoted in my autobiography stating that wheneverUnited had a big game against difficult opponents that he expected to see my name as the referee. He was pleased to see that name but notbecause ...
Wayne Rooney has been voted the Premier League's best player in a 30,000 strong Barclays Global Fans Survey. One in five voters selected the 27-year-old as the first name on their respective team sheets out of all the current crop of top- flight stars, with the England international's Old Trafford team-mate Robin Van Persie taking second place with 14 per cent. Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard claimed third with 10 per cent, while Luis Suarez was not far behind in fifth in the survey which covered nearly 200 worldwide territories. Rooney succeeds Chelsea striker Fernando Torres, who was the favourite player the last time the survey was taken, during his playing days at Anfield back in 2008.

However, it's Red Devils veteran Ryan Giggs who scooped the accolade of best Premier League player of all-time, overtaking another ...

Losing Premier League crown to Man City on goal difference would be agony, says Young Monday, 07 May 2012 13:08 | Written by skysports.com Ashley Young fears Manchester United's season will end in agony because their failure to score enough goals will allow rivals City to pip them to the title. Roberto Mancini's side are on course to land their first championship since 1968 after Yaya Toure's brace earned an impressive 2-0 win at St James' Park.

Young is remaining positive, but understands just how tight the margin of defeat will be if United conceded their title. He told MUTV: 'It's disappointing we didn't score more goals as it looked like we could've done but we've still got to have faith QPR can do us a favour. 'It comes down to the last day now and of course it will be disappointing, especially if it goes down to goal difference, and we lose ...
