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. Team news: Chris Smallin ...
Van Gaal explains dugout position Louis Van Gaal has revealed the reason why he has rarely entered the touchline technical area during his 11 matches as Manchester United manager. The Dutchman's tendency to remain seated in the dugout has been noted by Reds supporters, particularly when he made his first appearance on the touchline following Chris Smalling's dismissal in last Sunday's derby defeat at the Etihad Stadium. Speaking to MUTV at the Aon Training Complex on Friday, Van Gaal explained why he is always keen to take a more considered view of games from the dugout. "I am always on the bench because my philosophy is that we have to prepare our players to play the match and when you are shouting on the sideline, there is nobody you can contact during the game - especially when we are home at Old Trafford,” the boss said, referring to noise levels inside the ground. “But at that time when I was at the sideline [against City], it was because of the red card for Chris Smalling and I had to readjust o ...
Manchester United are back in the midst of another defensive injury crisis amid fears that Marcos Rojo could be out for six weeks with a dislocated shoulder. Rojo was carried off on a stretcher during United’s Manchester Derby defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday and needed oxygen at one point. Further rests have confirmed the defender’s injury is a full dislocation and the recovery time could be six weeks or even longer. The exact timescale will depend on whether Rojo has torn or merely stretched the ligaments that usually hold the shoulder in place. Rojo’s father appeared to confuse matters last night when he told a TV station in Argentina: ‘The injury is not too severe. He will miss two or three games.’ However, senior sources at Old Trafford confirmed yesterday that the injury was a dislocation and it seems improbable the £16million signing could recover that quickly. This means United manager Louis Van Gaal will have to plan for the coming weeks of the campaign without ...
Man City fans can't fill on nights, while own Basel stadium tonight AND there in not a soul at Old Trafford tonight.
Stoke City registered their first Premier League victory in Manchester as Mame Biram Diouf's fine solo effort stunned the champions. Man City 0-1 Stoke Diouf 58′ The Senegal international and former United striker raced 70 yards before slotting under Joe Hart. The hosts could have had a late penalty but Yaya Toure was booked for diving. Stoke had lost all 12 previous league matches at the Etihad Stadium and Old Trafford and manager Mark Hughes will savour this victory at his former club. The odds were stacked against the visitors who had not even scored at Manchester City in the Premier League By contrast, Manuel Pellegrini's men had failed to hit the net in just one of their last 70 home matches and the Chilean started with Sergio Aguero, who had taken just 23 seconds to score off the bench against Liverpool, up front. The Potters had failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 12 league matches but a resolute performance from Hughes's side saw them do just that and Diouf's second-half strike capped a . ...

Breaking News David Moyes as proposed that the owners of Man United sell off Old Trafford to housing developers. Then, with half of the money earned, they can approach MCFC to ask if they can time-share the Etihad Stadium. This would free up considerable money for the Reds and give the Blues even more income. Moyes has explained that one week City would play at home, the following week it would be United; this way they would at least stand some chance of getting 3 points on the Etihad pitch :)

This season may not have gone to plan at Old Trafford for David Moyes, but Tuesday night's Manchester Derby gives United the chance to restore some pride and claim the bragging rights until next season. But in order to do that, the champions will need to overcome a Manchester City side who have overwhelmed a host of Premier League sides this season. Manuel Pellegrini has enviable quality at his disposal in a number of areas and, as a result, the Etihad Stadium outfit dominate our combined Manchester Derby XI. Nevertheless, our goalkeeper comes from the red side of the Manchester divide. David De Gea has conceded more goals than Joe Hart this season, but has been called into action more often, featuring in more games and making more saves than the England No.1, who came in for scrutiny earlier in the seaso At right-back, the ever-dependable Pablo Zabaleta gets the nod ahead of Rafael after another season of consistent performances. The Argentine became one of the first names on the team sheet under Roberto ...
Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick says that the squad are just as desperate to beat Manchester City as the Red Devils fans are. David Moyes's men were humiliated by their title-chasing rivals in the reverse fixture in September when Manuel Pellegrini's men beat them 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium but, after two consecutive victories for his side, the England international is eager to avenge that defeat. "We understand the fans and the result they want and for us as players it's exactly the same," he told The Sun. "I've been part of this club for a long time now and you know what means a lot. This is certainly one of them. "We'll go into the City game looking forward to it. It's obviously a tough game but it's a tough game for both teams." United have also been thrashed more recently by Liverpool, who won 3-0 at Old Trafford earlier in March, and Carrick admits that the pain of that defeat still lingers in the dressing room. "It was a bad day for us and we suffered just as much as the fans," he added ...
Manchester United manager David Moyes is not concerned about putting a dent in Manchester City's title bid in Tuesday's derby at Old Trafford. City head across Manchester trailing leaders Chelsea by six points, but with three games in hand and knowing their title destiny is in their own hands. Manuel Pellegrini's side thrashed United 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the season, with the reigning champions having been unable to mount a robust defence of their crown. Moyes also presided over a 3-0 home defeat by arch-rivals Liverpool last weekend and, while plans are in place for next season, the United boss is keen to improve his record against the Premier League's bigger teams. "We are building already, with my thoughts and vision for next year," said Moyes. "In every game we have to start looking to that. We need to be in there competing for titles next year. "That's what this club has done and all the other clubs have had periods where they haven't been competing for titles. "There is an added impor ...
Manchester United are set to go on a summer spending spree as they look to banish their 2013-14 Premier League struggles by making a series of big-money signings.As many as six new faces will be arriving at Old Trafford. Chelsea defender David Luiz is top of Barcelona's wanted list again as they prepare for the summer transfer window. Steven Gerrard says Liverpool consider themselves "dark horses" for the Premier League title this season and has declared: "We're in the mix." Manchester City have been granted planning permission to expand the capacity of the Etihad Stadium to more than 60,000. Schalke have admitted the £37million buyout clause of Arsenal target midfielder Julian Draxlerwill still be active this summer. Tottenham are chasing Ajax and Holland defender Joel Veltman.

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.

Top 5: Future Premier League striker legends 5. Sergio Aguero A second season blighted by injury was a disappointing follow up to a first that ended with his now legendary last second contribution to claim the title. However, when Man City keep him fit he is possibly the most dangerous goalscorer in the Premier League and continues to find the net regularly. If the Citizens can keep him at Etihad Stadium for a few more years, there is a good chance he will fire them to more trophies and break all kinds of scoring records. 4. Robin Van Persie Arsenal fans are unlikely to see the Dutchman as such since his defection to Man United, but pretty much everyone else may find it difficult to deny once his career in the Premier League comes to an end. Three seasons of astonishing goalscoring culminated in leading the Old Trafford club to a record 20th title last season and he is back to goalscoring ways this year after a stuttering start. With the kind of quality Man United have and can attract, there is little cha ...
Old Trafford, in Manchester full. Etihad stadium in Manchester empty.
The battle for Manchester resumes this Sunday, as Manchester United travel east across Mancunian Way to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City. Even though Red versus Blue may be the starkest of contrasts, both teams come into the game in similar states. Both have new managers, both secured strong opening victories in the Champions League, and each team has gathered seven points in the English Premier League, with comprehensive wins followed by stuttering performances (City’s draw with Stoke City and United’s loss to Liverpool come to mind). Although this game comes relatively early in the fixture list, with victory unlikely to amount to a fatal blow for the loser, each team will be confident of putting one over on their rivals.

Manchester Derby: Supporters of the Barclays Premier League side’s top two sides over the last two seasons will only have to wait five matches before discovering which of the two rivals may emerge triumphant in the first Manchester Derby. The Mancunian clubs will meet at the Etihad Stadium on 21 September with United aiming to win in their neighbours’ yard for the second season in succession, while Manchester City will look for a hat-trick of Old Trafford successes in the return fixture on 1 March, having won 2-1 at Old Trafford last season and 6-1 in their title-winning campaign in 2011/12. City get the Manuel Pellegrini era under way at home to Newcastle United, before taking on two newly promoted sides, Cardiff City and Hull, in Matchweek 2 and 3 respectively.

STURRIDGE It is safe to say that the January transfer window was a resounding success for Brendan Rodgers. In Coutinho and Sturridge, Rodgers turned our strikeforce that was incredibly youthful and over-reliant on Suarez into a more dynamic, clinical outfit. Sturridge could not have had a better start to his Liverpool career. Scoring on his debut, Premier League debut and Anfield debut, all tied up neatly in a bow with a five-fingered salute at Old Trafford. Against Man City at the Etihad Stadium in early February, Sturridge gave what was in my opinion one of the best centre-forward performances I have seen in a red shirt. Sturridge was positioned right on the shoulder of the centre-backs, always central, always an outlet for his teammates. No matter what kind of ball came at him, Sturridge's fabulous footwork and movement was enough to make him hold up possession and bring other players into play. Seeing Sturridge master this art with his trickery completely dismissed the preconceived ideas that you need ...
Liverpool plan £150m Anfield expansion Liverpool are set to take a major step closer to a £150 million redevelopment of Anfield by submitting a planning application before the start of next season. - Blog: A question of progress Managing director Ian Ayre has confirmed that plans are on course for the rebuilding programme, which would see the Main Stand and Anfield Road End expanded, increasing the capacity to around 60,000. That would potentially make the ground the second biggest in the top flight, behind the 76,000-capacity Old Trafford. Arsenal's Emirates Stadium is currently the next largest, as it can hold just over 60,000 fans. The plans come soon after reports emerged that Manchester City are planning to increase the size of their Etihad Stadium to house as many as 54,000 fans. Last October, Liverpool announced that they planned to stay at Anfield rather than pushing ahead with proposals for a new stadium in neighbouring Stanley Park, seeking to expand their current ground's 45,000 capacity. But ...
Isco (Malaga and Spain) HE is likely to follow Manuel Pellegrini to the Etihad Stadium after two seasons in southern Spain. Isco, an attacking midfielder, would slot into the mould with other similar players such as Samir Nasri and David Silva. His close control and ability to beat players is the envy of Spain’s La Liga — but whether he will survive in the more physical Premier League remains to be seen. He will surely aid City’s bid to fare better in the Champions League.

Keeper Casillas in Real party Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas has been named in the Spanish club's squad for Tuesday night's Champions League last-16 meeting with Manchester United at Old Trafford. Casillas has not played for Jose Mourinho's side since fracturing his left hand in their 5-0 win over Valencia in January and only returned to training on Thursday. Spain's World Cup and double European Championship winner had wrestled back his starting place from replacement Antonio Adanbefore the injury but that setback forced Mourinho into signing fellow 31-year-old goalkeeper Diego Lopez from Sevilla. Lopez looks likely to continue in goal in Manchester but Casillas could find himself on the replacements' bench with Madrid due to arrive in the north-west on Monday before training at City's Etihad Stadium to continue preparations for the second leg. Real and United drew 1-1 at the Bernabeu in the first leg after Cristiano Ronaldo cancelled out Danny Welbeck's early header. Madrid defeated arch rivals Barce ...

FA Cup sixth-round draw: Manchester United could face Chelsea Chelsea 4-0 Brentford: Mata-inspired Blues reach fifth round Feb 17, 2013 The two Premier League giants must negotiate tricky fifth-round ties before meeting at Old Trafford, while Manchester City host Barnsley as reward for beating Leeds United 4-0 Manchester United and Chelsea could meet in the FA Cup sixth round but will have to negotiate their respective fifth-round ties first before a repeat of the 2006-07 final is realised.

Manchester United's march towards a 20th league tittle is taken on unstoppable proportions it was apparent in the ruthless manner in which they dispatched Liverpool to record a home-&-away league double over their historic rivals. In truth, it has been apparent in all of United's marquee domestic tussles this season. In six matches against who most would consider their five biggest rivals, Sir Alex's team have chalked up five victories The common themes are a marquee-match mentality that was sometimes absent last season, & a cavalier approach that has yielded outstanding results. By contrast, United's 2011-2012 league campaign was memorable for the home-&-away reverses against City, the unforgettable 6-1 humiliation @ Old Trafford & the decisive 1-0 defeat at Etihad Stadium. Sir Alex's side failed to rise to the occasion in other plum fixtures last season. They drew 3-3 at Chelsea & 1-1 at Liverpool, even if they swatted aside Arsenal & Tottenham home & away. In total, they collected a creditable 20points ...
LEWANDOWSKI AGREES TERMS TO JOIN Manchester United - Sir Alex Ferguson has dismissed the possibility of Manchester United signing any players in January but one A-lister is heading for Old Trafford. Goal.com understands that Robert Lewandowski has agreed in principle to join United next summer. The deal to bring the Borussia Dortmund striker to the club is already believed to have been secured despite Sir Alex Ferguson having an embarrassment of attacking riches, with Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez already on his forward roster. The Bundesliga champions have accepted that Lewandowski wants to leave the club and link up with former colleague Shinji Kagawa at Old Trafford. The Poland international is said to have agreed the terms of a five-year contract with United and the fee, likely to be around £12-14million, will be rubber stamped at the end of the season. Sir Alex, who was at Etihad Stadium to see Lewandowski spearhead Dortmund’s attack to such effect in the club ...

Sports News Man City better than United: Mancini Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini insists his team have shown they are better than United and have plenty of time to make up the six-point deficit to their city rivals. City suffered a first defeat of the season when they lost a fractious Manchester Derby 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium last weekend. Although they now trail their neighbours by six points, Mancini is taking heart from that fact that his team made up an eight-point deficit over the course of the final six matches of last season to *** the title on goal difference. Even though his side were beaten by Robin Van Persie's late winner, Mancini believes he saw enough to believe that his team - which won the Premier League last season - is better than Alex Ferguson's side. He has called on his players to show the same kind of attitude to the Old Trafford club. But he believes that his team's lack of European football, coupled with United's Champions League commitments, will have an impact in the ...
Manchester City vs Manchester United Derby To Bring Excitement Manchester City will start favourite to win the Manchester Derby against arch rivals United on Sunday, although both sides have failed to impress in recent outings.

Manchester United enter the derby three points ahead of City, but many are backing Roberto Mancini’s team to beat the Red Devils at the Etihad Stadium and return to the top of the league. Sir Alex Ferguson’s side has been struggling to keep clean sheets recently and his backline will again be tested by a very powerful Manchester City frontline that will include Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli.

Manchester City are yet to lose a game in the Barclays Premier League this season and ...
Ferguson downplays injury concerns. Captain Nemanja Vidic and Shinji Kagawa remain sidelined while Nani, Anderson and Antonio Valencia are all expected to miss the game against Manchester City on Sunday. Midfielder Tom Cleverly is also a doubt with a calf problem after hobbling out of the midweek Champions League defeat to CFR Cluj at Old Trafford. However, Ferguson insisted he still has plenty options ahead of the short trip to Etihad Stadium and says his squad is big enough to deal with the current injury list.
Sir Alex Ferguson has questioned the number of penalties rivals Manchester City are given at home. Since the start of the 2010-11 season City have been awarded 20 Premier League spot-kicks at home to Manchester United's 13. However, last season United were given nine penalties at Old Trafford - one more than their neighbours. "If we got that number of penalty kicks there'd be an inquiry in the House of Commons," the United boss said. "There'd be a protest." Ferguson was speaking ahead of Sunday's Manchester Derby at the Etihad Stadium, with his side three points ahead in first place. Opta stats show that City have been awarded four penalties at home so far this Premier League season, scoring three. United have missed both of the two they have won at Old Trafford. In the 2010-2011 Premier League season City were given six more home penalties than United, with a total of eight. Ferguson believes the fight for this year's title is already a two-horse race between the Manchester clubs. "It would be difficult ...

The Yorkshire club had not won the league, a shaken Ferguson insisted. His side, somehow, had lost it. Like the eight goals that separated red and blue in Manchester to make City champions five months ago, the collapse at Old Trafford in spring 1992 merely proved that United were not ready to rule. And then came Cantona. King Eric's coronation year was to be United's also, after his arrival in November 1992 heralded the beginning of the most successful period at any club in English football history, in which he alone would score 82 goals in 185 games. Now, with that reign under greater threat than ever before, five miles from the Theatre of Dreams at the Etihad Stadium, Robin Van Persie has been tasked with repeating the Frenchman's glorious history. "Robin is what we have needed for the last couple of years," said Ferguson in August. "We needed a finished player. We have had several players who have been this sort of catalyst, starting with Eric Cantona. "We never thought we could get Van Persie. Even if ...

Robin Van Persie has reportedly indicated to Arsenal that Juventus are his favoured suitors from the choice of the three most prominent clubs pursuing his signature. The Italian champions have made no secret of their desire to claim the signature of the Arsenal captain, and will have doubtless been buoyed by the revelation that Van Persie will not sign a new contract. Juventus will be further boosted by the news that Van Persie has identified Turin as his preferred destination, as reported by the Independent, although the 28-year-old has not ruled out the possibility of joining either Manchester City or Manchester United. However, it is claimed, that Van Persie would rather leave Arsenal for Old Trafford than the Etihad Stadium if presented with a choice between the two, although Arsene Wenger remains incredibly reluctant to sell the Dutchman to a Premier League rival. Van Persie returned to Arsenal training on Monday following an extended holiday and will meet with Wenger and Gunners chief-executive Ivan ...

Manchester United and Manchester City may have to wait a year if they want to sign Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie. The Arsenal striker’s future has been the subject of intense speculation as his current deal expires next summer, while Roberto Mancini and Sir Alex Ferguson are reportedly keen to acquire his services. However, a report in The Sun claims the Emirates Stadium manager Arsene Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis are willing tolet him run down the remainder of the contract rather than let him go to Old Trafford or the Etihad Stadium. Samir Nasri posed Arsenal with a similar problem last year, but the North London side opted to sell to City rather than lose him for nothing this summer after he made it clear he would not sign an extension. Van Persie’s situation differs in that he is far more valuable to the side and will be almost 30 when his contract runs out – Wenger has always been reluctant to offer long-term deals to players over that age. Wenger and Gazidis are due to meet with t ...

Crazy season, crazy last minute, were the words of Roberto Mancini yesterday as the blue half of Manchester ensured that the noisy neighbors remain silent as dey go back to d drawing boards to re-strategize. A late double from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguerro ensured that the city of Manchester is officially under blue control after the most phenomenal climax to a Premier League season, there was cause for double celebration at the Etihad Stadium as City lifted the premiership, while QPR survived relegation courtesy of Bolton's draw at Stoke. As United's game came to a conclusion, the title was staying at Old Trafford after Wayne Rooney netted the only goal of the game for the Red Devils. However, as United's players stayed on the field to wait for news of City's result, the groans from the travelling faithful told d Red Devils fatefuls all they needed to know as a miraculous title triumph was snatched from their grasp. Miraculous indeed what a magnificient way to celebrate a triumphant victory captured at d ...
Manchester United defender Patrice Evra still believes his side could *** the title from rivals Manchester City on the final day of the season. United, second on goal difference, require either City to slip up at home to QPR or an improbable landslide win over Sunderland to edge back in front. "Maybe people will say I'm crazy, but I still believe," said Evra. "I know destiny is not in our hands. If we want to keep believing in the miracle, we have to beat Sunderland." Manchester City have collected 52 from a possible 54 points at Etihad Stadium this season, while QPR have lost 13 times on the road this season - more than any other side in the top flight. But, after United's 2-0 win over Swansea on Sunday, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson told fans at Old Trafford this weekend could mark "the biggest celebration of our lives". He also suggested relegation-threatened Rangers, managed by former Manchester City boss Mark Hughes, would not lack motivation to ruin the leaders' party plans. Evra believes the .. ...
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. And although United beat Swansea 2-0 at Old Trafford they need a miracle - a QPR win or draw at the Etihad Stadium - to retain the Barclays Premier League crown. 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 ...
Not since Denis Law struck for Manchester City as Manchester United were relegated at Old Trafford in 1974 has a backheeled goal appeared so unappreciated by the scorer. As Paul Scholes, born later that momentous year, flicked United into the lead with masterly expertise, there was barely a flicker of a celebration. No raised arm, no smile, no indication of joy. Not for the first time, a glance at Scholes offered an accurate appraisal of United. There was an air of resignation about the old timer, a sense that a scoring a goal, no matter how skilful, when the Premier League trophy seems headed for the Etihad Stadium was the footballing equivalent of winning a minor battle and losing a major war. But both goalscorers' reaction told a tale in themselves. Scholes was the face of realism, Ashley Young the voice of implausible optimism. When the winger doubled United's advantage against Swansea, he charged into the visitors' net, retrieving the ball and haring back to the half-way line. It was as though, even ...
Javier Hernandez insists Manchester United will fight to the bitter end before relinquishing their Barclays Premier League title. United head into Sunday's encounter with Swansea at Old Trafford knowing they are no longer in charge of their own destiny. Unless they win their final two games by improbably high scores, the Old Trafford outfit will not be able to catch leaders Manchester City if they overcome their last couple of opponents, Newcastle and QPR. However, Newcastle represent an awkward assignment for Roberto Mancini's men and even relegation-threatened QPR are likely to have plenty of incentive to win at the Etihad Stadium on May 13. So Hernandez does not see any reason why the Red Devils should give up just yet. ``We will keep fighting because there are two games left,'' he said. ``The possibility remains for us to win the title. ``Some people say the chance is very low. Some say they are high. But we will keep fighting until the end.'' Win or lose, it seems Sir Alex Ferguson is already making ...
Vincent Kompany's first-half header set City on their way to a vital three points at the Etihad Stadium, and while tensions flared between Sir Alex Ferguson and his Italian counterpart, the Scotsman was unable to inspire his side. Instead, the Red Devils were left to return to Old Trafford with their tails between their legs and their noisy neighbours are starting to become defeaning.

Man Utd gaffer fergie says Rooney was careless- -dissapointed with Rooney Wayne Rooney is hoping to surpass Dennis Viollet's and George Best's 179 goals in a Manchester United shirt. Photograph: Jason Cairnduff/Action Images Sir Alex Ferguson gave Wayne Rooney a ticking off despite his two-goal contribution to Manchester United's 4-0 win over Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday. It took him to 31 for the season but Rooney looked unimpressed when he was replaced by Dimitar Berbatov. "He was careless," said the United manager. "Wayne has to play on the edge of a game, when it is really close and competitive. "When the game gets to that casual bit, he is worse than the rest of them. He gets really casual about it. It is better when he is on the edge. Then he is a marvellous player." Despite his initial reaction Rooney echoed his manager's sentiments after the match when talking to MUTV: "It was nice to score two goals but I didn't think my performance was good enough," he said. "Obviously we were disappoin ...
