Timezone SAST In Progress — First half — 29′ QPR 0 - 0 Manchester United 27' Action The last time QPR took any points from United was back in the 1995/96 season when they drew 1-1. They were denied all three though by a last-minute equaliser from Eric Cantona, which proved vital in their pursuit of a third Premier League title. 25' Action We have got a slight break in play here as Zamora went down after he was caught by Rojo's arm. It was accidental though and the striker is back on his feet. 23' Action United do knock the ball around nicely the majority of the time, but they have got a tendancy to give it away in a very basic and sloppy manner. 21' Action Austin has been in great form recently and he looked sharp there. Only Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa have scored more goals than him in the Premier League this season - not bad company at all! 19' Action SHARP SAVE FROM DE GEA! The ball falls nicely for Austin just outside the area and he hits it on the half-volley, but De Gea is alert and beats t ...

Van Gaal praises Man Utd spirit 27 October 2014 Updated 07:50 GMT Manager Louis Van Gaal praised Manchester United's "fighting spirit" after Robin Van Persie's injury-time goal earned a 1-1 Premier League draw against Chelsea. Van Persie's equaliser came after Daley Blind scored in the 87th minute to salvage a point at West Brom on Monday. "The most pleasing thing is we are believing in making a goal even when the scoreline is bad," Van Gaal said. "The players are running until the 90th minute to equalise or win." The Dutchman added: "Chelsea tried to kill the game but my boys ran and fought until the end and at the end we scored and deserved it." MOTD2 analysis Peter Schmeichel: "Manchester United and Chelsea have excellent young goalkeepers in David De Gea and Thibaut Courtois but, in front of them, things are very different. Courtois plays behind an incredibly well- organised defence. In contrast, United's back four is full of uncertainty and insecurity, something that was particularly evident at set-p ...

LONDON, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal may have watched on somewhat uncomfortably as Danny Welbeck grabbed a superb Champions League hat-trick for Arsenal on Wednesday. Deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford after the arrival of Colombian Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco, Welbeck has hit the ground running in North London after Van Gaal off-loaded him for 16 million pounds ($25.8 million). Falcao, Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney have made little impact in United's worst start to a Premier League season since its inception in 1992. ...
This weekend was not an exciting one in the Premier League, as last Sunday saw shocks, with Leicester City’s comeback against Manchester United, and then Crystal Palace won at Everton against the odds. Week six of the Barclays Premier League saw Manchester United go back to winning ways, but they had to win the game the hard way after Wayne Rooney’s sending off. Chelsea continued their title winning form by beating Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge. Manchester City were part of a six goal thriller against Hull City and lost a two goal lead, but they bounced back in the second half to take all three points at the KC Stadium. There were two derby games on Saturday which both ended in draws, as Phil Jagielka scored a stunner to earn a point for Everton at Liverpool. Then Tottenham Hotspur had to work hard to earn a draw at Arsenal. Man Utd were two-nil up after twenty minutes, and strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie scored. Rooney went from hero to zero in the second half, with the score at 2-1 to Ma ...
Lampard ends Chelsea’s perfect start, Leicester stun United Emotional Frank Lampard rescued a point for champions Manchester City against former club Chelsea on Sunday while Manchester United gave up a 3-1 lead to slump to a shock 5-3 defeat at Leicester. Lampard‘s equaliser ensured a 1-1 draw against the Premier League leaders who lost their perfect start to the league season but still moved three points clear of second-placed Southampton. It seemed Jose Mourinho’s side were set for a fifth straight league win when Andre Schurrle put them ahead in the 71st minute, shortly after City had been reduced to 10 men by the sending off of defender Pablo Zabaleta. But former Chelsea great Lampard, only playing for City after being loaned to them by New York City, the club he left for at the end of last season, drew the hosts level five minutes from time following a typically late run into the box. The drama at Eastlands was as nothing compared to events earlier in the day at Leicester’s King Power Stadium ...
From Manchester United's first win of the campaign to Diego Costa's impressive start at Chelsea - all the best stats from the fourth round of Premier League fixtures By Duncan Alexander SEVENTH HEAVEN Views on how Diego Costawould do in the Premier League were definitely mixed when the Atletico Madridstriker signed for Chelsea. Some saw his bullish performances in La Liga as ideal fare for England’s top-flight, while some looked at his lacklustre displays for Spain in the World Cup and shook their heads. STAND-OUT STATS Liverpool hit only one shot on target against Aston Villa. The only team that restricted them to a single shot on target in a game last season? Aston Villa. Arsenal have already conceded four headed goals this season (one in each of their games), 25% of the league’s entire total. Crystal Palace have never won a Premier League home game in September (D4 L5). Villa did not register a single shot in the second half in their 1-0 win at Anfield. Mark Hughes actually succeeded in making cli ...
Louis Van Gaal has insisted he has no problem changing Manchester United’s 3-5-2 system after adding six players during the summer Transfer Window. The manager switched to the formation on taking over yet he is still seeking a first Premier League win after taking only two points from nine. With Ángel di María, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao arriving in the final days of the window to join Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo, Van Gaal was asked if it would be easy or difficult to adopt a new shape. “It’s not difficult I think to change the formation, because when we buy a player we also see the positions he can play in other systems,” he said. “When you see what we have bought, you can see that.” Despite the disappointing start Van Gaal denied he would change his philosophy if this form continued, though the Dutchman did concede he may change his “idea” if results did not alter after a month. “That’s another question. I’m always for evaluation, I’m not only evaluating the pl ...
PL PREVIEW FOR 13th September Arsenal - Man City 17:30 NST Arsenal won 18 of their first 22 Barclays Premier League fixtures against Manchester City, but have only won three of the last 12 (D4 L5). The Citizens have only won one of 17 previous Barclays Premier League games away at Arsenal; a 2-0 win in January 2013 (L11 D5). Indeed, that 2-0 win was also the only time Manchester City have scored more than once in 17 Premier League games at either Highbury or the Emirates. Danny Welbeck could become only the third player in Premier League history to play for both Arsenal and Manchester United (Mikael Silvestre, Robin Van Persie). The Gunners have won more Premier League games in September than any other Premier League side (48) and also have the best points/game average (2.02). Arsene Wenger's side are unbeaten in 19 Premier League games at the Emirates Stadium (W14 D5) and have won their last four in a row there. Arsenal have conceded four goals from only seven shots on target faced in the top-flight this ...
LVG named Wayne Rooney as Man United captain Louis Van Gaal has named Wayne Rooney the club captain of Manchester United for the upcoming 2014/15 Premier League season. The Dutchman had been pondering many choices for the captain's armband for the Red Devils, many believed that Robin Van Persie would've have been the manager's choice after the striker had captained the Netherlands under Van Gaal at the World Cup. However, 28-year-old Wayne Rooney has been given captaincy duties for the upcoming debut season under Van Gaal, Rooney has now been with the club for 10 years and is tasked with becoming the leader of the new era at United. Van Gaal's Statement Van Gaal made the announcement following Man United's final pre season game against Valencia, he spoke in a interview about how he came to decision over his captain, he went on to explain: "For me it's always very important the choice of captain.

Old Trafford side offer Juventus star a massive reason to consider a Premier League switch. Man United continue to pursue Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal and as well as launching a fresh £40m bid the Old Trafford side are also set to offer the Chilean a massive contract according to the Daily Express . Read more Manchester United FC news. Boss Louis Van Gaal is keen to add some creativity to his midfield and will hand the former Bayer Leverkusen man a massive £200k a week deal that would see Vidal earn the same as Robin Van Persie, with only England man Wayne Rooney being paid more at the Premier League outfit. Comments made by Juventus director Pavel Nedved would suggest that a move for Vidal was plausible with the former Czech Republic star stating temptingly; "Our strategy is clear; we want to keep all our Best Players, including Vidal and Pogba. "We don't want to sell anyone, especially Vidal. "Certainly, if there were a high bid for them, we'd have to think about it." Such a contract offer would c ...

Exclusive: Arsenal to Sell Pair Ahead Of £18m Bid to Re-Sign Robin Van Persie as Wenger Prepares to Make Room for Man United Striker.Arsene Wenger is preparing a summer bid to re-sign Man United striker Robin Van Persie following reports that the Dutchman isn’t happy with life at Old Trafford under boss David Moyes. CaughtOffside understands that Arsenal manager Wenger is to launch a bid in the region of £18m for 30 year old marksman Van Persie who appears open to the prospect of a move back to the Emirates Stadium. Van Persie is one of a number of senior Man United stars who have questioned the ability of David Moyes to lead the Premier League title holders and the very real prospect of failure to secure a Champions League berth will further fuel speculation of a possible summer departure. In his first season at Man United Van Persie scored 30 goals in all competitions and was a key member of a side Sir Alex Ferguson led to a domestic title but 2013/14 has proven a real calamity and a move back to Ar ...

Has Moneyball Worked at Liverpool? By Jon Eastwood Moneyball originated from Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A’s baseball team. The Oakland A’s lost three of their star players and they did not have the money to compete with the bigger teams in the league such as the New York Yankees. In a football sense it could compare to Liverpool trying to compete with Manchester City on a financial basis. The reason Liverpool are trying to use the moneyball system is because John W.Henry (the Liverpool Owner) is a huge fan of this system and has introduced it to the Boston Red Sox, another team he owns. The moneyball system looks at players in a different way and uses a sabermetric analysis. Sabermetric analysis looks at the statistics of the player. This system will ask objective questions, such as who is the best offensive player in the Premier League. The common answer to this could be the leading strikers are Luis Suarez, Sergio Aguero or Robin Van Persie. But the sabermetric answer would be Leigh ...

Could he be the key player for the visitors tonight? …-The Red Devils, meanwhile, have only amassed seven points from their last six league games, but have only lost one of their last 13 meetings with Arsenal in all competitions. …-There will be a lot of eyes on Mesut Ozil for the hosts, after some pretty abject performances recently.

Tonight’s game between Arsenal and Manchester United has always been a big clash in the Premier League, but only very seldom had both teams entered the game on the back of such shocking results. The Gunners' title credentials have once again come under question, following their 5-1 thrashing by in-form Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday. Manchester United, meanwhile, were also - and once again - left frustrated when rock bottom Fulham scored an injury-time equalizer at Old Trafford on Sunday. United had 80 percent possession, 31 attempts at goal, a record 81 crosses and a pass success rate of 92 percent, yet they were not able to turn quantity into quality. Despite David Moyes’ and a couple his players claiming luck as the reason behind United’s latest down-turn, Fulham manager, Rene Meulensteen, a former assistant of Sir Alex Ferguson, revealed his opponent's tactics are predictable and easy to defend. United’s form under David Moyes has seen them picking up only two victory’s out of nine games . ...
Manchester United’s good week continues, with Goal reporting that they are set to welcome four of their key players back from injury during Tuesday’s fixture with Cardiff City. Goal suggests that Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Marouane Fellaini and Rio Ferdinand could all return to the United squad imminently, having sat out the past few weeks through injury. The Cardiff game is also likely to see the debut of new signing Juan Mata, meaning that United fans may see a much changed side from recent weeks. Strike duo Van Persie and Rooney have rarely figured at the same time this season, with both men suffering injury plagued starts to the season. Van Persie has been missing since early December, whilst Rooney has not played since the New Years Day defeat to Tottenham. Summer signing Fellaini has also suffered from a catalogue of injuries this season, with his latest ailment keeping him out of the last eight Premier League fixtures. Ferdinand has also been on the long term injury list this season, but c ...

How Manchester United can sneak back into title contention The Red Devils are clearly in strife this season. When Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie aren't in excellent form, United seem just another average Premier League outfit. January could prove pivotal to their chances of European football, and even possibly, winning the title. Who they should target - Defensive midfielders and defenders Arturo Vidal, Luka Modric, Sami Khedira, Claudio Marchisio, Javi Martinez, Daniele De Rossi, Fabricio Coloccini, Ryan Shawcross, Nicolas Nkoulou and Phil Jagielka
Hull v Man Utd, 12:45 In an alternate universe where continuity is even more important there would have been a line of Former United players queuing up to be interviewed when Sir Alex walked away, but instead they all play against the side David Moyes inherited and wonder what might have been. Today Moyes faces Hull on their home turf, and although the Tigers only have one win in their last five that came against Liverpool, again at the KC, so they have a bit of form here. Having seen that game, the 9/1 on a 1-1 draw with Ladbrokes is tempting, but Hull need a bit of luck to get a draw or win today. Michael Carrick could return for United, but the away side are still missing Nemanja Vidic, Danny Welbeck, Robin Van Persie, Nani and Marouane Fellaini through injury. For the home side Sone Aluko is out, along with Robbie Brady and Steven Quinn, both of whom are near a return. Aston Villa v Crystal Palace, 15:00 There are a lot of reasons for football teams struggling in the Premier League, from tactical defi ...
Arsene Wenger Rules Out Selling Any More Arsenal Stars To Man United Gunners boss won't sell his stars to United. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that he will never sell another one of his stars to Manchester United again, talkSPORT reports. The long suffering boss let star striker Robin Van Persie move to Old Trafford in the summer of 2012 and the Dutch ace immediately paid back his £24m fee by firing the Red Devils to the Premier League title. And furthermore, the 30-year-old then punished his former club more by notching the winner against them in Sunday's clash at Old Trafford. Wenger later claimed that he did not want to part with Van Persie but the fee on offer was just too good to turn down and Rene Meulensteen, then a coach at with United, helped push the deal through. And now Wenger has seen the error of his ways and has categorically told new United boss David Moyes that he can forget about getting his hands on anymore of his coveted stars in the near future. "It was a special circum ...
Manchester United ended Arsenal's 15-game unbeaten away run in all competitions with a 1-0 Premier League win at Old Trafford. Unbeaten Barcelona moved three points clear in La Liga with a 4-1 victory at Real Betis, while Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed a hat-trick in Real Madrid's 5-1 win over Real Sociedad. Bayern Munich extended their unbeaten record to 37 games with a 3-0 triumph over Augsburg in the Bundesliga.

Robin Van Persie is joint 11th on the Premier League's all time top scorer list, along with Robbie Keane, on 126 goals!
Tottenham are considering a January move for Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez after the striker admitted he may have to leave Old Trafford to seek regular first team football. The Mexican hit-man told reporters last week that, while he enjoyed life with the Premier League champions, he is hungry for more playing time. Hernandez is a prolific scorer for United whenever he gets on the pitch but has seen his chances of regular starts diminish behind the likes of Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck. Tottenham were considering a move for the 25-year-old in the summer before securing the services of Roberto Soldado for £26million. And manager Andre Villas-Boas is considering going back to United with a firm offer when the Transfer Window reopens as he is still keen for more options up front. La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are also believed to be interested in Hernandez – who has scored 51 goals in 122 appearances for United since joining from Guadalajara for £8million in 2010

Better never than late. It was back to Premier League business after the International break as several managers put forward their claims to be the first sacking of the season (did you know that aside from Arsene Wenger no other current Premier League manager has achieved 3 years in his job), Ashley Young made a bid for the British 10 metre board Olympic squad and Jonjo Shelvey was man of the match for both teams at the Liberty Stadium. Manchester United got their title defence back on track after defeat at Anfield with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. Although still not convincing in their performance United were comfortable throughout with Palace not managing a single shot on target. Robin Van Persie came close with a typically brilliant chest-down from a Wayne Rooney through ball but his volley hit the bar. Ashley Young was rightly booked for simulation as he attempted to con the referee by initiating contact with defender Kagisho Dikgacoi but a minute into first half injury time the two clashed agai ...

Manchester United season review Final League Standing: 1st Total points gained: 89 Goal difference: +43 The 2012/13 campaign will undoubtedly go down as a landmark season United’s history as they claimed an unprecedented 20th league title. It marked the end of an era as Sir Alex announced his retirement. Ferguson began the season with controversy signing Former Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie a man who would greatly help their Premier League push. Van Persie came off the bench to make his United debut at Goodison Park, but the £24million man could not stop the Reds slumping to an opening-day defeat against Everton. The Dutchman opened his account for the club the following Saturday as Ferguson’s outfit beat Martin Jol’s Fulham.

UCL Preview Remix by Realdream's finest: Manchester United x Real Madrid, Dubbed "all guns blazing" Guess what? Saturday afternoon, it’s 2pm at Old Trafford, 3pm at the Bernabeu. The team sheets for Manchester United against Norwich and El Clasico have been handed to the press and match officials. What happened next, wasn’t entirely expected. Tuesday, without doubt is either side’s biggest game of the season. Real Madrid need the Champions League having pretty much conceded La Liga and United have coasted to the top of the Premier League, almost sealing the title in the process. This is where the shock element came into Saturday afternoon. Robin Van Persie, the main man at Old Trafford this season was substituted last weekend against QPR due to a hip injury. We all knew it was not serious but with the next fixture against Norwich at home and just 3 days before the Madrid game, everyone figured “Oh well, RVP was going to be rested anyway, Fergie just has that excuse not to use him now.

WHAT EXACTLY IS WRONG AT ARSENAL? The first answer is obvious, Wenger himself.The professor’s course is no longer relevant yet he is still teaching it. It’s like GHC in 2013,or Microsoft DOS, you cannot do much with it. Wenger’s much hyped youth project has not borne fruit in eight years.Fabregas who was 16 when it started, got tired of waiting and is set to win a La Liga winner’s medal this season. Samir Nasri left and won the Premier League in his first season away while Robin Van Persie has the potential of winning a treble with Manchester United – his head must be spinning like crazy. Wenger has for eight years been unable to engineer a trophy; really, even the Carling Cup, and just to underline the extent of the problem, he went ahead to invent his own trophy-the fourth place cup. I don’t know whether to file that under lack of ambition or inability to compete. Wenger has had the money and the scouting network to bring world class players to Arsenal,but then he turns and acquires players ...
Madrid Ambitious Boyong Chicharito Real Madrid reportedly ready to bid to lure Javier Hernandez out of Manchester United. The Sunday Mirror claims that Los Merengues will take advantage of a situation that began Chicharito marginalized by duo Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney even Danny Welbeck at Old Trafford. Madrid reportedly ready to seduce 24-year Mexican national team players were away from the Premier League this summer. Moreover, they were impressed with the speed and instincts Chicharito scored deemed appropriate character of Spanish football. Sure could sign him for around 20 million euros, Madrid reportedly made the former Chivas Guadalajara striker as the main alternative if they fail to bring Edinson Cavani, Radamel Falcao or Sergio Aguero.
Premier League - Paper Round: Real Madrid want Hernandez Real Madrid are set to make a summer move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, according to the Sunday Mirror. The 24-year-old feels he does not play enough games at Manchester United, where he is currently behind Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney in the pecking order. And Real Madrid think the Mexican, who has 15 goals from 26 appearances this season, would fit in instantly at the Bernabeu. Whether that move would benefit Hernandez is anyone's guess - Jose Mourinho is not expected to remain in charge of the club into next season, and with Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain already at the club, it is debatable whether Hernandez would play any more football in Spain than he currently does for the Red Devils. Sir Alex Ferguson is not thought to want to sell him, either - but if his planned move for Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski comes off in the summer, he may be more receptive to Real's approaches. Elsewhere Darren Bent may well fin ...
man teams: Gareth Bale's two goals for Spurs on Thursday night mean that the Welshman has now scored Tottenham's last six goals in all competitions - no other Spurs player has scored in 392 minutes of action. Manchester United star Robin Van Persie has often been called "the difference" in the Premier League title race this season, and he leads the league with 19 goals. But Manchester United are also the Premier League's highest scorers with 62 - which means Van Persie contributes just 31%. 1.

Top 10 Europa League Players To Watch This Year: Hulk - Zenit St Petersburg Zenit are currently on their winter break - they don't resume until March - but Luciano Spalletti has organised a series of friendlies to get them match-fit. One of the most imposing, unpredictable forwards in the world on his day, Hulk could tear through this competition and drag Zenit with him. Unfortunately, his stay in Russia so far has been dogged by controversy and he's yet to produce his best football in the mother land. The Europa League, a competition in which he flourished under Andre Villas-Boas, provides a great opportunity to kick-start his post-Porto career. Gareth Bale - Tottenham Hotspur The conversation for Premier League Player of the Year typically wittles down to three names - Robin Van Persie, Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale. The Spurs winger has scored all of his side's goals in the past three matches, and he's single-handedly reeling in third-placed Chelsea in the Premier League. Comparisons with Cristiano Rona ...
MANCHESTER, England - Earlier in 2012 we reported on Chevrolet becoming the official sponsor of Manchester United football club. In February 2013, players and staff received the keys to their new Chevs. The choices made were characterised by the needs and lifestyles of the players, with the Chevrolet Captiva proving to be among the most popular. Robin Van Persie, who opted for the Captiva, said: "I have two children, so this car is really good for me – it's a family car.

Premier League, Craven Cottage - Fulham 0 Manchester United 1 (Rooney 79) Wayne Rooney came up trumps for Manchester United with a late winner in a 1-0 Premier League victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage. United rode their luck in a topsy-turvy match. The woodwork was hit four times in the first half, while the league leaders twice had to clear goalbound headers off the line, including one in stoppage time. The eventful encounter was also delayed by a floodlight failure on the cusp of half time, but in the end it was a moment of composure and class from Rooney that settled the match. He pounced on a loose ball on the left 79 minutes in, then stroked a finish into the far corner beyond the dive of Mark Schwarzer. With Manchester City not in action until Sunday, United stretch their lead to 10 points in the title race. Sir Alex Ferguson named an aggressive-looking side, with Rooney and Robin Van Persie both starting, and Nani and Antonio Valencia on the wings. Fulham left new arrival Urby Emanuelson on the ...

Gameweek 22 – Weekend Wrap Up . Gameweek 22 signalled the return of Premier League football after a break for League Cup and FA Cup fixtures. With the free January wildcard available and activated by many, this was always going to be a tough gameweek to prepare for, not least because it played host to the first of our two successive Double Gameweeks. Add in to the mix a fair volume of player movement in the early stages of the Premier League January Transfer Window, and it’s fair to say there was plenty for us fantasy managers to mull over going into this one. Well, with 10 of the 11 gameweek 22 matches now played, let’s take a look back at the action from the perspective of a fantasy football manager. Games between Manchester United and Liverpool are always compelling encounters, but this one featured two of the Premier League’s most in-form strikers – United’s Robin Van Persie and Liverpool’s Luis Suarez. It was the Dutchman who came out on top, scoring from a Patrice Evra cross in the fir ...

Money back on Sunday's Premier League matches if they end in a draw Two of the biggest games of the season take place on Sunday when Manchester United host Liverpool and Arsenal entertain Manchester City. Paddy Power will refund losing first/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets if the match they are placed on ends in a draw. So let’s look at the likely goalscorers and correct scores these fixtures are likely to throw up. Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have had the upper hand in the last two league meetings with their great northern rivals, beating Liverpool 2-1 home and away, while the Reds won their 2011/12 FA Cup tie 2-1. United to repeat that score at Old Trafford is 7/1 (8.00) with Paddy Power on Sunday, while Liverpool to win 2-1 is a 12/1 (13.0) chance with the same bookmaker. It is a massive game in the fixture list and neither side will win without their big players performing. At Anfield last September, Robin Van Persie kept his nerve to blast an 81st-minute penalty past Pepe Reina, to ...

The news just broke during the Chelsea-Everton clash at Goodison Park. Sky Sports News reported that Newcastle striker Demba Ba, 27, was ready for a move to the Bridge. Despite Alan Pardew’s numerous attempts to keep him, it seems the Senegalese player is bound to leave in January. Demba Ba was thought to be moving to Arsenal but the Sky report says that Chelsea took the lead this afternoon to sign the Magpies striker. After numerous attempts to sign big-name strikers like Falcao or Cavani, it looks as if the Blues are ready to settle for an easier and cheaper target by getting Demba Ba. But it’s important to note that Demba Ba will be cup- tied for the Europa League this season, as he played for Newcastle in the competition. The ex-Hoffenheim striker has a £7M release clause in his contract, which becomes active in January. This season Ba has scored 13 Premier League goals in 20 appearances, which makes him the second best goal scorer : 1 goal behind Robin Van Persie. Sky reporter Phil Forster repor ...

Anfield boss interested in Old Trafford forward. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgershas reportedly taken an interest in young Man United striker Federico Macheda. The Italian Under 21 international has struggled to force his way into the Old Trafford first team picture afteran explosive start to his Man United career and his agent hastalked up the possibility of his client looking to move on and could well be tempted by the possibility of a move to Anfield. The 21 year old Man United forward spent unsuccessful loan periods at QPR and Sampdoria though it is worth noting that the Rome born marksman didn’t get all that much time to impress during either spell. Macheda exploded onto the scene three and a half years ago when he scored a cracking winner on his Premier League debut against Aston Villa, he then scored the following weekend away at Sunderland but then struggled for form and has seemingly fallen well down the pecking order following the signings of JavierHernandez and Robin Van Persie and seen youngst ...

A classic Premier League rivalry is renewed on Sunday afternoon, as Manchester United travel to Newcastle. Sir Alex Ferguson will be looking for a response from his side after they lost to Tottenham in their last Premier League fixture, although Robin Van Persie inspired a Champions League victory in midweek. Alan Pardew will play his first home match since being awarded an 8-year-contract, and is expected to start with the leagues most in form striker Demba Ba for the visit of United. Ba opened the scoring in the corresponding fixture last season, with a superb half volley. Newcastle ran out 3-0 winners that night, in a match that eventually had a huge baring on where the title ended up. Pardew named a strong side for the midweek win over Bordeaux, but the fact the likes of Ba, Ben Arfa and Davide Santon remained unused substitutes suggested they will start Sunday’s clash. Defenders Fabricio Coloccini (hamstring) and Steven Taylor (calf) and Ryan Taylor remain unavailable. United have a long injury lis ...

Scott Wootton admits his Birkenhead background is unusual for a Manchester United player. Wootton had a rather unconventional route to the United first team in that he hails from Birkenhead and was initially on Tranmere Rovers' books. However, it was not long before Liverpool were showing an interest and he moved to their academy. ... United always kept in touch though, and when Wootton hesitated over signing scholarship forms with the Anfield outfit, the Red Devils made their move. "I wasn't too sure whether I was going to sign (for Liverpool)," said Wootton. United invited me down for a week's trial and said they wanted to sign straight after that. It was really good." He was among the Manchester United away fans cheering Robin Van Persie's penalty winner at Anfield a fortnight ago. He came on for Evans in the win over Cluj, six days after a first senior start in the Capital One Cup against Newcastle. Now he is in line for his Premier League debut if Jonny Evans is ruled out of Sunday's trip to Newcastl ...

London glory will come at high price John Brewin There will be sighs of relief at Emirates Stadium as Didier Drogba will not line up for Chelsea It is set to be the most expensive game yet staged in Premier League history. That is not a reflection of Chelsea's latest spree on players, and it could hardly be Arsenal's. Instead, it is the man on the street, the punter, who will be paying through the nose for the first meeting of the season between London's pretenders to the title crown. Arsenal's new grading system of matchday prices places the capital-city derby as a minimum £62 admission price. Adding all the eye-watering prices together - and let's repeat that £62 is the minimum cost - then Arsenal are set to yield £6 million from a single fixture. That's a figure that may even have met Robin Van Persie's wage demands, had he been minded to stay at the Emirates but the Dutchman was not. He departed a club once known as the 'Bank of England club' to one in Manchester United in hock to several banks in ...

As exclusively revealed by Goal.com in June, the Premier League champions tried to sign Falcao in the summer and are willing to pay a record fee for the Colombian in the New Year, with Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes attempting to broker the move. A summer move failed to materialise as the club were unable to offload Edin Dzeko despite interest from AC Milan and Bayern Munich, while Carlos Tevez's return to form saw him return to favour under Roberto Mancini. Chelsea are also huge admirers of Falcao, who has scored 42 goals in 53 appearances for Atletico Madrid including a stunning hat-trick against the Blues in his side's Uefa Supercup victory in Monaco last Friday. THE VIEW FROM SPAIN Radamel Falcao's departure is a time-bomb for Atletico Madrid. At this point, it seems a question of when he will leave, rather than if. He is too good for a team that will never be able to fight for a title in Spain and that hasn't been able to qualify for a Champions League in the last years. That doesn't mean that A ...

City forced to wait for Aguero scan results LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will know in a couple of days whether the knee injury sustained in the opening 3-2 Premier League win at home to Southampton on Sunday is serious. The Argentine striker, whose last-gasp goal against Queens Park Rangers sealed the title for City in dramatic fashion back in May, was carried off on a stretcher after 13 minutes. City's top goalscorer last season looked in severe pain after a tackle before getting to his feet and then dropping to the floor again. "I think we need to wait two days for the scan," City manager Roberto Mancini told Sky Sports. Any long-term absence for Aguero would be particularly agonising for City having missed out on striker Robin Van Persie, who opted for Manchester United after leaving Arsenal. A dip into the market with two weeks left in the Transfer Window is always possible for the club, although City proved they have goals throughout the team in the comeback win over promo ...

"Robin Van Persie pindah ke Manchester United dengan transfer 20 juta pounds " Robin Van Persie is closing in on a sensational £20million-plus move after Arsenal officially began negotiations with Manchester United. The Mirror can reveal the two clubs spent Tuesday night talking about a deal which could now be pushed through before the Premier League kick-off this weekend. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is likely to settle on a fee of just above £20m as United prepare to increase their offer for the Dutch forward, who is currently on international duty but won't be in the starting line-up when Holland play Belgium on Wednesday night. It is understood the clubs are very close to agreement on a fee. Fergie made direct contact with Wenger earlier in the week to try to push the deal through after weeks of posturing.

Robin Van Persie: Transfer Timeline Will he, or won't he? Robin Van Persie poised for sensational Arsenal transfer u-turn A few weeks ago, Robin Van Persie appeared determined to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer. With Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus all vying for the signature of last season's Premier League top scorer, the 28-year-old Dutchman's future looked like it would be played out anywhere but North London. Arsene Wenger has always remained positive about Arsenal's chances of retaining the services of their influential captain, though, even after the loss of key players like Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas in seasons gone by.

interview that covered all the key areas at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners legend return to the club on loan last season, memorably coming off the bench to score the winner against Leeds United in an FA Cup third round tie. Henry will be remembered for his more memorable eight years under Arsene Wenger between 1999 and 2007, scoring 174 Premier League goals before leaving for Barcelona and then the New York Red Bulls. Currently enjoying a third season in the MLS, the French legend certainly hasn’t taken his eye on life in North London, and is glued to the newspapers to see how the Robin Van Persie saga plays out in the coming month.
Aston Villa new boy Ron Vlaar has admitted Robin Van Persie played a central role in convincing him to move to England. And he has urged the Arsenal striker not to quit the Premier League, insisting his departure would be a huge loss.

Open Letter to Robin Van Persie from a Gooner Dear RVP, I would like to congratulate you on your remarkable achievement last season. You finished the campaign unscathed, carted away numerous individual awards, and broke several club and Premier League records; a feat that will go down in Arsenal history books. You brought harmony, peace and respect to the squad on and off the pitch. Big man, big responsibility; You handled it very well, even much more than I expected. As an Arsenal supporter, I have seen many great players and I have to confess, You are a bottomless pit of creativity with “genius” written all over you. But, on the 4th of July 2012, you dropped the bombshell that turned Arsenal into turmoil, when you released a statement declaring your intention not to put pen to paper on the contract the club has offered you. Who am I to tell you what to do? But I know one thing for certain, Arsenal it was, Arsenal it is and Arsenal it will be. Many people have criticized us for lacking ambition, that ...
Just one last time, I can't believe Robin Van Persie hasn't signed a new contract at Arsenal. After the amount of time the club persevered with him through his own personal uncertainty (I am of course referring to his injury problems and issues with his temperament) they stuck with him and moulded him into one of the best strikers in the world, only for him to turn round and stick his middle finger up at us after his one exceptional season, exactly the same as Nasri did last year. Thank you Robin, for single handedly carrying us in terms of goalscoring last season, but surely Euro 2012 will have proven to you more than anything that without Song, Walcott, Gervinho, Arteta and the team to assist you, you are nothing. I hope for your sake you go on to pastures new outwith the Premier League, because I don't think I'll be able to take seeing you in a Man City or Chelsea shirt next season. I guess that makes Thomas Vermaelen our captain for next season then? Swet. The Verminator.
The first big transfer of the summer was agreed in April when Arsenal snapped up German striker Lukas Podolski from Koln. After a season in which the North London club relied heavily on Robin Van Persie for goals, Podolski will be a welcome addition to Arsene Wenger's squad. As he showed in yesterday's game against Denmark, Podolski should be a real threat in the Premier League. The German likes to drift out wide to the left before arriving late into the box. With the attacking players Arsenal have at their disposal, this should make Podolski extremely hard for defenders to pick up.
Robin Van Persie, Oliver Giroud, Lukas Podolski all scored over 100 goals combined last year. Premier league watch out

Patrick Vieira believes Arsenal FC have left it too late to keep Robin Van Persie at the club next season
Robin Van Persie, have helped Arsenal salvage what remains of their pride in English Premier League, by clinching the last automatic Champions' League slot, a feat nobody gave them any quantum of chance to achieve, given how the started the just-concluded season. Methinks it's now Arsenal's turn to reciprocate the gesture and help RVP, as the Dutch striker is fondly called, realize his dream of lifting trophies in a commensurate measure with his prowees as a prolific Net-shaker. Arsenal should make a louder statement of intent that goes beyond the signing of only Luckas Podolski. The arrival of the likes of Yann M'vila- a French(from Renne) Jan Vertonghen- a Belgia (from Ajax) and Jhon Hoilett -a Canadian (from Blackburn Rovers, would go a long way in assuring RVP, that Arsenal are willing to shed their toga of an also-ran team, and assume that of, not only a tittle contender, but also that of trophy winner. Other wise, I see no reason why they would not continue to serve as a feeder team to the like of F ...
