Out of the Champions League and who knows when United will be back? David Moyes has admitted that Wayne Rooney's fitness was not up to standard as Manchester United were knocked out of the Champions League quarter-finals by Bayern Munich. United suffered a 4-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern after Moyes had decided to take a gamble by fielding Rooney after he had a painkilling injection in his left foot.

Wayne Rooney starts for Manchester United as they attempt to book a last four spot at the expense of holders Bayern Munich. TEAM NEWS Bayern will be without three key midfielders for the quarter-final second leg, evenly poised after last week's 1-1 draw. Bastian Schweinsteiger is suspended following his first leg sending-off, Javier Martinez also misses out through suspension, while a third key midfielder, Thiago Alcantara, is out injured. Manchester United have doubts over the fitness of Wayne Rooney, although the striker has travelled to Bavaria despite his injured toe, which was heavily bruised in last week's first leg at Old Trafford. Ashley Young is also doubtful after picking up a hand injury in the weekend's win over Newcastle in the Premier League. But experienced left-back Patrice Evra has indicated he expects to be fit enough to return to the side after missing the first leg through suspension and despite struggling with a knee problem.

Moyes enjoying away days (AFP) Saturday 5 April 2014 Share David Moyes feels Manchester United are making the most of playing without the extra pressure Old Trafford brings after sealing a tenth Premier League away win of the season. The reigning English champions climbed to sixth by maintaining their impressive form on their travels, which is the best in the top flight, by comprehensively defeating Newcastle 4-0 at St James's Park on Saturday. The result, achieved despite eight changes and without the injured Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie, was the perfect preparation for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg with Bayern Munich. United, level with the holders after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, know how difficult it will be in Germany, but Moyes believes his players are enjoying greater freedom when they are not playing on home soil. "Maybe there is a big expectation at Old Trafford to be a bit more gung *** and we have lost games by narrow margins," the United manager said. "Wherea ...
News : Manchester Utd: Wayne Rooney may miss Bayern Munich tie Wayne Rooney is a doubt for Manchester United's Champions League quarter-final second-leg trip to Bayern Munich on Wednesday because of a toe injury. The 28-year-Old England striker, who suffered the injury in Tuesday's 1-1 first-leg draw, will miss Saturday's Premier League game at Newcastle. Manager David Moyes said: "He's got a badly bruised toe. It could be a problem for the Munich match."We'll get him treatment all over the weekend and see if we can speed it up." Rooney's absence would be a big blow to United's hopes of progressing. Along with Robin Van Persie, who has a knee injury, he is the club's joint-top scorer this season with 17 goals, two of which were in the Champions League. It is not the first time Rooney has been injured after the first leg of a Champions League quarter-final tie with Bayern. Previous United manager Sir Alex Ferguson ruled the forward out of the second leg in 2010 after he suffered an ankle injury in the open ...
(continued) Salahmade the breakthrough with 31 minutes gone, firing home an excellent first-time effort after good work down the left from Nemanja Matic. An offside flag denied Ivanovic Chelsea's second when he headed in Lampard's cross just before the break. TOP OPTA STAT Salah has scored as many goals for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge (2) as he has against them at the stadium (both for Basel). The visitors made a determined start to the second half and, with Chelsea struggling to assert themselves, Mourinho introduced Hazard from the bench. The Belgian immediately had an impact, playing a neat backheel into Salah inside the box, where the Egyptian was brought down by half-time substitute Andy Wilkinson for a Chelsea penalty. Lampard'seffort was initially saved by Begovic down to the goalkeeper's right, but the England midfielder responded first to tap the loose ball into an empty net. The midfielder is the fourth highest-scoring Englishman in Premier League history, moving level with Wayne Rooney on 171. T ...
NEWCASTLE v Manchester United (Kick-Off 3:00 UK & Nigeria) Newcastle's injury woes continue, with Moussa Sissoko joining their lengthy list of absentees with a thigh strain. He joins the likes of Tim Krul, Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy on the sidelines. Manchester United duo Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans are back in training and available to play but Wayne Rooney is out with an injured toe while fellow striker Robin Van Persie remains out. Rafael and Ryan Giggs are doubts, but Alex Buttner is fit, while Juan Mata and Patrice Evra return. MATCH PREVIEW It's unusual for this fixture, at this stage of the season, not to be one of importance towards the top of the Premier League. However, make no mistake, it's hugely significant for both of these clubs in their current predicament. In Manchester United's rollercoaster season of transition there have been small signs of hope and recovery at times, only to then be followed by another negative result.

Joey Barton says English are players 'not world class' Use accessible player and disable flyout menus QPR midfielder Joey Barton says English players are "not world class" and thinks fans "get sucked into the hype of the Premier League". Barton believes foreign players in Premier League teams make Englishmen "look better than they are", and compares the "mentality" and "discipline" of Wayne Rooney unfavourably with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo. You can listen to Barton's full interview with Sir Clive Woodward on Thursday on BBC Radio 5 live at 19:30 BST. No subject is off limits as he opens up about his troubled childhood, the "weak" managers he has worked under and talks about his own ambition to become a leading coach. Barton also discusses England's chances at the World Cup and the FA's development of players, and recounts what happened before his infamous sending-off against Manchester City at the Etihad in the final match of the 2011-12 league season.
Bastian Schweinsteiger scored a vital away goal as Bayern Munich drew 1-1 with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, and was later sent off. Nemanja Vidic opened the scoring with a brilliant second-half header but United's shock lead did not last long, with Schweinsteiger's crisp volley soon levelling proceedings. The Germany international would not finish the game, however, as he shown a second yellow card late on after a rash challenge on Wayne Rooney. He will, therefore, miss the second leg on April 9, along with his defensive team-mate Javi Martinez, who picked up a booking of his own for a cynical foul on Javier Hernandez. The hosts were under the cosh for almost the entire match but captain Vidic grabbed the opening goal 13 minutes into the second half as Europe's premier club competition continued to represent a bright spot in United's otherwise troublesome campaign. Despite their fall from grace domestically, the Premier League champions had won all four of their European ties at Old ...

'All the coaches around the world do not want to be favourites before the tie. I have to accept that we are. Last season Bayern won everything and this season we were 25 points ahead of our opponents and we won the title seven games early. But I know in the deep of my heart which team we are going to play against. 'Maybe they have not played a good season in the Premier League but they make a good season in the Champions League. When I see Wayne Rooney, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Chicharito, Danny Welbeck, I know the quality these player haves. For one game or two games, they can make the best performance of the season and beat us.'

Manchester United's senior hierarchy is “evaluating all possibilities” as it attempts to arrest the club's steep descent under David Moyes. Contrary to public statements that Sir Alex Ferguson's successor will definitely be granted at least a second season as manager, Moyes' dismissal is prominent among those possibilities. Though Tuesday's humiliating 3-0 home loss to Manchester City ensured that United's first post-Ferguson season is statistically the club's worst in the Premier League era, the review of potential candidates to replace Moyes should not be regarded as a knee-jerk reaction. Key decision-makers within the Old Trafford board have been assessing potential replacements as manager for several weeks and further talks are planned. Having already sanctioned a spend of over £60 million on two headline transfers, handed Wayne Rooney a club-record contract renewal, and approved an unprecedented recruitment spend for this summer, the Glazer family is said to be concerned that the Scot will con . ...
TOP TEN MOST RICHEST PLAYERS IN EPL There are some well known reports on who is the highest paid player in the Premier League as Wayne Rooney recently signed a colossal £300,000- a-week deal at Manchester United. Of course whilst earning high wages at a club does contribute towards overall wealth, footballers have several other avenues through which they can make money. So here are the 10 richest players currently plying their trade in the English top tier. 10. Sergio Aguero, Manchester City - £24m Arrived at the Etihad Stadium in 2011 for a whopping £38m and is said to earn around £9.6m a year with the Citizens and is midway through a five- year deal with the club. Therefore this fortune is only set to go up - especially if the Argentine can score goals as important as the last minute winner that earned them the title in 2012. 9. Yaya Toure, Manchester City - £25m Aguero's City team-mate now and a midfielder who upon first arriving in England in 2009 from Barcelona was reported to be the highest pai ...

'Pedestrian. Predictable. Man Utd were a mess' 26 March 2014 Updated 07:01 GMT By Phil McNulty - Chief football writer, BBC Sport The sight of a line of Old Trafford stewards guarding "The Chosen One" banner draped over the Stretford End since the appointment of David Moyes as Manchester United manager suggested the mood has started to sour. And the sound of loud and mutinous voices - not too many but enough to be noticed - raised against Moyes and even in the direction of Sir Alex Ferguson, the man who did the choosing, in the directors' box as Manchester City inflicted the latest embarrassment on the fallen Premier League champions carried even greater significance. Liverpool winning 3-0 at Old Trafford less than a fortnight ago was arguably a greater shock to the system than City winning by the same margin on Tuesday as the Merseysiders have barely appeared in United's rear view mirror in title terms in recent years. But there was a difference. United's supporters stayed in place in a noisy show of def ...

Football - Moyes: Rooney strike is derby boost Manchester United Manager David Moyes claims his players will carry "vital belief" into Tuesday night's derby after Wayne Rooney's wonder strike set up victory at West Ham. PA Sport Report – 21 minutes ago Rooney's 58-yard goal spurred United to a 2-0 Premier League victory at Upton Park, and title-chasing Manchester City are next up for Moyes and his men at Old Trafford. The 28-year-old's eighth-minute opener evoked memories of Beckham's famous halfway-line lob against Wimbledon. Former England captain Beckham was a conspicuous face in the crowd as Rooney mimicked his long-range effort from that 3-0 Wimbledon victory back on August 17, 1996. Beckham's wry smile spoke volumes of Rooney's immediate contender for goal of the season, and United manager Moyes suggested the strike can breathe confidence through his revitalised Red Devils. "It was a great goal by a top, top player: technical ability, and awareness to know exact where the goalkeeper was," said Moy ...
Wayne Rooney on the half line takes control of the ball and smashes the ball from his shoelaces as he finds the goalkeeper off his post and what do you know, it's Wazza's day as the ball calmly bounces into the net and Manchester United are ahead! It was Wayne's day as not only did he score the goal which probably is Premier League's goal of the season but he also etched his mark in United's history as the third highest goal scorer displacing the legendary Jack Rowley :) It was also wonderful to see Juan Mata play in his preferred position and Shinji Kagawa making a start. Rooney doubled the lead and sealed 3 points for David Moyes! All in all 'Wazza day it was!' GGMU :) PS: Get well soon, Robin Van Persie.
Champions League : Van Persie hat-trick fires Manchester United into quarter-finals Van Persie Robin Van Persie scored a rousing hat-trick as Manchester United booked their place in the Champions League last eight with a breathless 3-0 win over Olympiacos at Old Trafford. David Moyes' side had trailed 2-0 from the first leg in Athens three weeks ago, but produced a stirring comeback with Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and goalkeeper David De Gea returning to the levels of form that led United to the Premier League crown last season. Van Persie slammed a penalty into the net for the opening goal on 25 minutes before he tucked a Rooney pass beyond visiting goalkeeper Roberto for the second goal a minute into added time in the first period after a lovely ball over the top by Giggs to find Rooney. The Dutch forward added number three and the winning goal six minutes into the second half when he lifted a free-kick over the Greek side's wall and into the net with Roberto left dismally out of position. Oly ...
Robin Van Persie's hat-trick lifted the gloom surrounding Manchester United and Manager David Moyes as the English side beat Olympiakos Piraeus 3-0 to overturn a 2-0 first-leg deficit and reach the Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday. United, mounting a dismal defence of their Premier League title in Moyes's first campaign since replacing Alex Ferguson, kept alive their last remaining hope of lifting a trophy this season. Asked to show character by their manager, United responded with Van Persie showing a clinical edge that has been missing of late while the recalled Ryan Giggs was also instrumental on his first start since late January. Van Persie began the Old Trafford comeback with a 25th-minute penalty, awarded after he had been shoved in the back by Jose Holebas. The Dutchman levelled the tie on aggregate in first- half stoppage time, steering in Wayne Rooney's cross and Van Persie completed his hat-trick with a free kick six minutes after the break that left Olympiakos keeper Roberto rooted ...
he new Manchester United contract Wayne Rooney signed last month has made him the fourth-highest earning player in the world, according to France Football magazine. • MP: Rooney wages justified Rooney, 28, put pen to paper on a five-and-a-half year deal at Old Trafford in February that reportedly took him beyond the 300,000-pound-a-week barrier, making him the first player to do so in the Premier League. Estimated to make 24 million euros in total this year by the weekly French magazine, Rooney's annual salary of 19 million euros is actually the highest of any player in the top 20 of the rankings, though he still trails the top three, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar, due to his lower endorsement revenue. Messi, who topped the chart for three successive years before being deposed by David Beckham in 2013, weighs in at a global total of 41 million euros. A sizeable 26 million euros of that comes from endorsements, with boot supplier adidas providing him with some eight million annually alone. R ...
Diego Maradona thrust his "Hand Of God" into the air and smiled in approval. If there was a moment that confirmed Liverpool's right to be taken seriously as Premier League title contenders, this was it. The legendary Argentina World Cup winner, sharp suited and sporting deafeningly loud ear-rings, was in attendance in Old Trafford's directors' box on a day of huge and contrasting significance for Manchester United and Liverpool. And Maradona, looking like a well-dressed pirate, will have savoured the quality in Liverpool's display on a day when the secret was well and truly out. Manager Brendan Rodgers, in the shadow of Chelsea and Manchester City, has shaped a side that can win their first title since 1990. Maradona will have appreciated the movement and menace of his fellow South American Luis Suarez, whose partnership with Daniel Sturridge shone a harsh light on the seemingly dysfunctional footballing relationship between Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie. The Argentine will have noted the relentless w ...
United slipping into mediocrity 17 March By Zoran Milosavljevic Conceding three penalties to Liverpool at Old Trafford would have usually triggered a furore among Manchester United fans, players and management under any other circumstances but for the humiliating manner in which they lost Sunday's derby. Not even the fiery Wayne Rooney questioned referee Mark Clattenburg's decisions on an afternoon the England striker described as one of the worst days he ever had in football, after a crushing 3-0 defeat left United with only a forlorn hope of finishing in the top four in the Premier League. Rooney's post-match comments underlined a gulf in class between the two teams this season, with the balance of power swinging back towards a Liverpool side transformed by Brendan Rodgers from mid-table underachievers into title contenders. United, shockingly for their fans, seem to be heading in the opposite direction - at least in the short term. The mauling United suffered at the hands of their bitter rivals actuall ...

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has revealed that Manager David Moyes was influential in his decision to stay at the club. The 28-year-old signed a new contract with the Premier League champions last month that will see him remain at Old Trafford until June 2019. "David Moyes's influence on me signing the new contract was absolutely massive," he told The Mirror. "Certain issues did arise last season that I wasn't happy about. But out of respect to Sir Alex Ferguson, I won't talk about what went on because as far as I'm concerned it's all in the past. "When David Moyes took over, he made it clear to me straight away that he wanted to draw a line under last season. And the key thing was when he assured me that he had total belief in me. Just as important, he also told me things that I probably didn't want to hear. "He told me I had lost something from my game and that I needed to get back to basics. The boss reminded me about the player I was. He wanted to know what had happened to all my aggression. ...

Manchester United boss David Moyes can take just a handful of positives out of the season so far - with the Premier League champions failing to compete against the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City for the title. Wayne Rooney's return to form and the fact that he has committed his long-term future to Manchester United, the signing of Chelsea's Juan Mata and Robin Van Persie's recent admission that he is happy at Old Trafford are just a few of the plusses from Moyes' first season at the club. Another huge bonus this season has been the form of Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj. Few had heard of the 19-year-old teenager this time last year as Januzaj was making strides in Manchester United's development side - rather than in front of thousands at the Theatre of Dreams.
Manchester United face Liverpool this weekend in one of global football’s most enduring rivalries and, as ever, there is far more than pride at stake for each team. Three points for Liverpool at Old Trafford can reinforce their position as genuine contenders for the Premier League title, with the Reds having ascended into second position, ahead of Arsenal by virtue of goal difference. Manchester United may have already relinquished the trophy they won last season, and their focus has now moved to secure a place in the coveted top four positions. Victory against Liverpool would go some way to achieving that for David Moyes’ side. There is, of course, also the added incentive for Manchester United to quash any title ambitions Liverpool may have and, in doing so, remain on top of the English football perch to which they have climbed, with 20 league championships to the 18 won by their greatest of rivals. This rivalry is one that means more to Wayne Rooney than most, with the born and bred Evertonian havi ...

Wayne Rooney has admitted that it is hurting to see Liverpool challenging for the Premier League title.
Rooney: Liverpool success hurts Wayne Rooney says he is hurting from seeing bitter rivals Liverpool fight it out for the Premier League while Manchester United are an afterthought in the title race. Rooney went on to say. "To see City doing well, and particularly Liverpool, is really difficult," Rooney told club magazine Inside United. "It's not nice when we know we are capable of being up there challenging and we haven't been doing that this season. "However, it means we have to step up and get back up there because the feeling we've had this season is not a nice feeling at all to have. "We have to keep working, keep progressing and finish the season stronger." However Rooney has placed the blame squarely on the players' shoulders. He said: "As a group of players and a team we haven't been good enough this season and we have to put that right. "After Sir Alex being here for 26 years, there was always going to be a change whoever came in and, in fairness, I think the players have to do better. "Hopefully ...

Premier League shared the following link and had this to say about it: FULL-TIME West Brom 0-3 Man Utd Goals from Phil Jones, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck hand Manchester United all three points at The Hawthorns
Manchester United kept their slim hopes of a top-four Premier League finish alive with victory at lowly West Brom. A Rafael header was tipped onto the crossbar before United took the lead when Phil Jones powered in a header. The Baggies exerted some pressure in search of an equaliser and striker Victor Anichebe angled a shot wide. However, United secured the win when Wayne Rooney headed in from close range and Danny Welbeck provided a cool finish after a well-worked move.
£15.6m - Wayne Rooney's annual wage eclipses the reported salary of Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo (£14.25m) and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, whose reported wage is £12.08m a year, according to the 2013 Forbes rich list. £160,000 - The figure he will have to spend once tax and national insurance contributions have been taken off his £300,000-a-week wage. £30,000 - The average weekly wage of a Premier League footballer in 2011-12, according to statistics compiled by Deloitte's sports business group. £517 - The national average weekly wage of a person working in the United Kingdom.

Wayne Rooney says players are to blame for Man Utd's poor Premier League form
Wayne Rooney says won't be satisfied without tasting Champions League glory again: Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has reportedly said that he would not be satisfied if he finished his career without tasting the Champions League glory for another time. Rooney has lifted the trophy in the competition with United in 2008, before finishing on the losing side in the final against Barcelona in 2009 and 2011. On the eve of the first leg of United's last 16 tie away to Greek champions Olympiakos, Rooney said that one always wants to win the trophy, adding that to win is never enough, especially at the club, News 24 reports. The striker further said that a player wants to win it every year, but that is impossible, adding that if they go into the finals, it would be great as it would be an opportunity to win another trophy. According to the report, United haven't looked like potential European champions this season, falling 15 points off the pace in the Premier League and crashing out of both domestic cup c ...

David Moyes and Manchester United remain bullish for Olympiakos tie • Manager believes United can win Champions League • Wayne Rooney says strikeforce is working hard in training From David Moyes and his Manchester United players the message is clear: no one is giving up on the Champions League. Wayne Rooney, Darren Fletcher and Nemanja Vidic all echo the manager's bullishness that a fourth European Cup is not beyond United despite the side standing sixth in the Premier League, 11 points from qualifying for next season's contest. To tout themselves as able to win a tournament that includes the holders, Bayern Munich, who are more formidable this year, and the gilded Barcelona team of Lionel Messi, Xavi and Neymar, sounds fantastical. Yet this is a cup competition and Moyes spoke at the weekend of "doing a Liverpool", who triumphed nine years ago as underdogs, while Chelsea in 2012 also somehow pulled off the trick of lifting the trophy when deeply unfancied. United's quest continues in the last 16 at ...

Old Trafford star strongly linked with amazing Emirates Stadium return in a £15 move Man United striker Robin Van Persie has been linked with a truly shocking possible return to Arsenal with the Daily Mail claiming that Old Trafford boss David Moyes is planning a mass summer clear-out. 30 year old Dutch forward Van Persie is said to have been upset at seeing Sir Alex Ferguson retire at the end of last season and is now considering his future at Man United, with the veteran manager's presence at the Premier League side one of the main reasons he was willing to make the controversial switch from the Emirates Stadium in the first place. Van Persie is also said to be unsettled in his new surroundings and misses London and is none too impressed with Man United's new training regime and should Man United manage to tie Wayne Rooney down to a new long term contract they could be willing to sell the experienced marksman. Arsene Wenger is said to be ready to welcome Van Persie back, despite his age, and would be o ...
By their own standards, Manchester United are officially in a mess It's been said before, but we might as well say it again: What has happened to last year's Premier League champions? The fact that Charlie Adam banged in two goals in a 2-1 win that made Stoke City the eighth side to down United tells you what kind of a state David Moyes' side are in. Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie all started, but United might as well have fielded the reserves for all the difference it made. The title went up in smoke weeks ago, but things have gone way beyond that point now - the way things are going, they'll be lucky to earn a Europa League spot. Unless there is a marked response at Old Trafford to end these continuing relapses, United's run of 17 consecutive seasons enjoying Champions League football - a greater number than any other club in Europe, including Real Madrid - is about to come to an end.
Juan Mata: New Man Utd signing keen to link up with Rooney Manchester United's record signing Juan Mata cannot wait to link up with new team-mate Wayne Rooney. It has been reported that Mata's £37.1m move from Chelsea could lead to a potential summer switch for Rooney in the opposite direction. But Rooney, 28, is now in talks with United to extend his contract. Spain forward Mata, 25, said: "For me, he's one of the best players in the history of this country. He's an unbelievable player. Mata, who has signed a contract understood to run until summer 2018, could line up alongside Rooney for Tuesday's Premier League game at home to Cardiff City.

United slump, Sunderland out of relegation 01 February 2014, 20:35 Charlie Adam scored twice as Stoke City beat Manchester United 2-1 on Saturday to show the flailing Premier League champions it will take more than one big- money signing to improve their fortunes. The optimism created by Juan Mata's transfer from Chelsea drained away as United were beaten for the third time in their last five league games, losing ground on rivals Everton, who beat Aston Villa 2-1, and Tottenham Hotspur who drew 1-1 at Hull City. United, who fielded Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Mata in a mouth- watering forward line, were again undone at the back. Adam rifled home a spectacular winner in the second half, after Van Persie cancelled out his deflected opener, to leave United seventh on 40 points, five adrift of Everton in fifth and four behind Spurs. Elsewhere, an Adam Johnson-inspired Sunderland recorded a thumping 3-0 win at derby rivals Newcastle United while West Ham United striker Andy Carroll set up both goals but ...
There is a new sense of optimism in the Manchester United camp ahead of Saturday's match at Stoke City. Tuesday evening's 2-0 win against Cardiff City at Old Trafford not only earned the Red Devils a welcome victory - only their second in seven league and cup outings - the match also featured an impressive debut by club record signing Juan Mata, plus the return of star strikers Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney from lingering injuries. Spain midfielder Mata, who moved to United from Premier League rivals Chelsea last weekend for a club-record fee of 37.1 million pounds ($61.2 million), was applauded off the pitch on Tuesday after being substituted after 85 minutes. Netherlands striker Van Persie, who missed 11 matches due to a thigh problem, started against Cardiff and headed United in front after only six minutes. England forward Rooney came on as a 63rd-minute replacement for Van Persie after a five-match absence with groin trouble. Ashley Young scored a second for United just after the hour mark. Unite ...
Talksport Exclusive Louis Saha has told talkSPORT Manchester United will not make the top four despite signing Juan Mata from Chelsea and Wayne Rooney penning a new contract. Spanish winger Mata's club-record £37million arrival has got Red Devils fans excited but their former French striker warned the club not to rely only on the midfielder to help the ailing side. Asked if the Premier League holders, who are seventh in the table, could yet make a Champions League place, Saha told Drivetime: "I doubt it. Obviously there will be changes. Mata will bring them something new but it will take them a big, big run to catch the fourth spot." But the ex-France international added that Mata's arrival and Rooney's extension indicates things are improving at Old Trafford. "The style of play is not right and a player like Mata is going to have the same sort of impact as [Mesut] Ozil did for Arsenal. I really hope straight away it's a good thing for the team because they desperately need some creativity in there. "Roo ...

The Glazers, not David Moyes, are responsible for Man Utd's struggles this season, says Jeff Stelling. Defeat to Tottenham on New Year's Day has left Manchester United 11 points adrift of Premier League leaders Arsenal and it's now going to be a struggle for the champions to make the top four, let alone defend their crown. I hold my hands up because at the start of the season I thought they'd win the title. Not for the first time I'm going to be wrong. There's a lot of finger pointing going on at the moment and David Moyes, the man who has the poisoned chalice of replacing Sir Alex Ferguson, has come in for criticism while others are questioning whether the players are good enough. I understand that but maybe the focus of attention might be better served on the owners. When the Glazers arrived in 2005, United were feared across Europe. When there were big transfers out there United were the big players - Rio Ferdinand, Juan Sebastian Veron, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney. Wen there was a big name going ...

Post match quotes from the manager. "Norwich put on a great show today, but we did as well. We kept it quite tight at the back.

Ross Barkley's stunning late free-kick helped Everton beat Swansea and move into the Premier League top four. The 20-year-old midfielder missed a chance early in the second half and hit the bar from 20 yards before whipping the winner in off the crossbar. In a frenetic second period, Seamus Coleman gave Everton the lead from 25 yards, before Dwight Tiendalli's volley was deflected in off Bryan Oviedo. Everton, now 10 games unbeaten, sit two points off leaders Liverpool. Analysis Ross Barkley Image of John Hartson John Hartson BBC Radio 5 live "That free-kick reminded me of Wayne Rooney's goal against Arsenal for Everton many years ago. Magnificent technique from the young lad. Pure brilliance." Toffees manager Roberto Martinez, who played for Swansea before guiding them to League One promotion as manager in 2008, said returning to south Wales brought back "great emotions" ahead of kick-off. Barkley's winner will have sent the Spaniard back to Merseyside in similarly upbeat mood. Everton, whose defenders h ...
Manchester United: Title rivals will be nervous as momentum builds Manchester United did not make a complete case for normal service being resumed by beating Arsenal - but a glance at recent results and the Premier League table suggests the obituaries can stay locked in the drawer. The noise levels around Old Trafford, and the joy that greeted the final whistle, were an accurate measure of this game's significance to United and David Moyes. United needed three points to stop Arsenal extending their lead over them to difficult, if not quite impossible, proportions. Their still relatively new manager needed a victory in a game of such status after previous opportunities against Chelsea, Liverpool and -desperately and embarrassingly -Manchester City yielded only one point. And both duly arrived courtesy of Robin Van Persie's soaring 27th minute header from Wayne Rooney's corner. If the striker is, as Arsene Wenger suggests, still "an Arsenal man" then he has a funny way of showing it. Van Persie scored in bo ...

Newcastle United ended 41 years of hurt at Old Trafford. Alan Pardew became the first man to win against Manchester United in their own backyard in Premier League history while Yohan Cabaye scored the crucial goal to seal the deal. And they deserved it. Forget the fact Man United didn't have Wayne Rooney, this victory came after United edged possession and had more shots at goal throughout the contest.

Wayne Rooney at the double as England stars get amongst the goals: Premier League round-up
Goals from Kyle Walker and Sandro for Spurs cancelled out by two from Wayne Rooney resulted in a draw in the Premier League
Wayne Rooney salvaged a 2-2 draw for Manchester United at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday but the Premier League champions lost further ground as Chelsea and Manchester City offered further evidence that they will lead the pursuit of Arsenal. Chelsea recovered from going behind after 13 seconds to beat Southampton 3-1 at home with John Terry scoring on his 400th league appearance for the club and free-scoring Man City climbed to third after spanking Swansea City 3-0. City, for whom Samir Nasri netted twice, have now scored 16 goals in their last three home matches. Liverpool began the day in second place but faltered, losing 3-1 at Hull City.
Rooney saves United, Liverpool stunned 01 Dec 2013 18:09:39 Wayne Rooney scored twice to help Manchester United stretch their unbeaten run to 12 games in an entertaining 2-2 Premier League draw at Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool were upset 3-1 at Hull City on Sunday. Rooney twice levelled for United in a captivating game at White Hart Lane, showcasing his poacher's instinct to cancel out Kyle Walker's opener before firing home a penalty after a Sandro thunderbolt had put Tottenham back in front. Champions United remained eighth on 22 points, nine behind leaders Arsenal, with Tottenham a further point back. Hull, who had never beaten Liverpool, opened the scoring on 20 minutes thanks to a huge slice of good fortune, Jake Livermore's shot from distance cannoning off the boot of Martin Skrtel and looping over keeper Simon Mignolet. Liverpool levelled thanks to a curling free kick from Steven Gerrard but their lacklustre performance was punished in the second half when David Meyler latched on to a loose ball ...

Wayne Rooney claims Manchester United could be top by the New Year via
Rooney vows United can be top by the New Year, but which of the eight teams they face until then are most likely to trip them up? After helping Manchester United kick-start their title charge following their 1-0 win over league leaders Arsenal, Wayne Rooney has backed the Red Devils to be top come the New Year. The striker, who helped assist Robin Van Persie's winner against the Gunners at Old Trafford on Sunday, claimed after the match that the club aims to be 'top or thereabouts' at the turn of the year as they bid to retain their Premier League crown. United have a busy set of fixtures between now and then, playing nine top-flight games, including home and away clashes with rivals Tottenham. But how likely is it that United could reach the Premier League summit heading into 2014?

Wayne Rooney says Manchester United targeted the height of the Arsenal team during their Premier League clash
FULL MATCH UPDATE BETWEEN Manchester United 0-0 Arsenal 90’ MATCH SUMMARY It wasn't perhaps a classic in the mould of past Manchester United vs. Arsenal clashes, but there was no denying the battling endeavour of both sets of players, with league leaders Arsenal finding themselves enveloped in a war of attrition with a proud United side keen to show they're still serious about retaining their Premier League title. From the off, the red shirts got stuck into their opponents with Phil Jones enjoying a supreme first half as he looked to drive forward play from midfield, and tackling tirelessly in defence. Robin Van Persie gave United the lead on 26 minutes, powering a header beyond Szczesny from Wayne Rooney's corner, and the home side deserved it, having comfortably stifled their visitor's creativity - £47 million-man Mesut Ozil had a particularly ineffectual afternoon. Nemanja Vidic had been bullying Olivier Giroud in the first-half, but was taken off at half-time after being caught by David De Gea's kn ...
Manchester United FC overcame Premier League leaders Arsenal FC 1-0 and climbed into fifth place after both Manchester City FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC fell to surprising defeats. RELATED ITEMS Liverpool close gap Arsenal establish cushion Arsenal and Liverpool win Arsenal stay top, United held Arsenal back on top In a game of few chances at Old Trafford, Robin van Perise proved the difference by registering against his former employers for the third consecutive match. Wayne Rooney was the provider, whipping a corner to the front post for the Dutch international to glance in with his head. Rooney had a chance to put the game to bed midway through the second period but dragged a left-footed shot wide. The Gunners' lead at the top now stands at two points.
Head-to-head The Red Devils have lost just one of their last 12 league and cup games against the Gunners (W9, D2, L1). This will be Arsene Wenger's 50th game against United as Arsenal manager. He has won 15 of the previous 49 (excluding penalty shoot-outs). Manchester United - The Red Devils have won back-to-back Premier League games for the first time under Manager David Moyes. Fourteen of United's last 19 league goals have been scored or assisted by Robin Van Persie or Wayne Rooney. Patrice Evra will become the third Frenchman to make 250 Premier League appearances, following in the footsteps of Arsenal duo Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira. Arsenal - Victory would give Arsenal their highest ever points tally after 11 Premier League matches. Arsenal are the only Premier League club to have scored in every game this season. The last team to shut-out the Gunners was David Moyes' Everton in a 0-0 draw at the Emirates on 16 April. Prior to this weekend, only five players had assisted four or more Premier Lea ...

Just take a Look at the Premier League table. Consider how Arsenal are playing. The evidence is pretty clear, even if many at the club are reluctant to say it: Arsène Wenger and his players are bang in the mix for the title. Yet an equally clear sign might have come on Wednesday, from a streetwise scouser, whose comments also reflected his own return to form and confidence. It was big-man-back-in-town talk from Wayne Rooney and when the Manchester United striker offered his view on Arsenal's staying power, or his perception of the lack thereof, he knew how it would be picked up and thrown at the London club, as they prepared for Sunday's visit to Old Trafford. Rooney noted that Arsenal, who sit five points clear at the league's summit, were "doing brilliantly at the minute" but he also highlighted how they had "been in the top two until February or March [before] and faded away". If it was OK with everybody, he would prefer to reserve judgement on their credentials until March. Rooney could not have been ...

Wayne Rooney doubts Arsenal's real chances of winning the Premier League
Wayne Rooney has cast doubt on Arsenal’s Premier League title chances. After extending their unbeaten run to eight matches in all competitions with Tuesday night’s goalless Champions League draw with Real Sociedad, Manchester United’s focus is now trained on Sunday’s showdown with Arsene Wenger’s men. Despite negative pre-season expectations around a club that has won nothing since 2005, Arsenal have shot out of the blocks. Not convinced: Wayne Rooney is not sure if Arsenal can win the title The arrival of Mesut Ozil who Rooney once advised Sir Alex Ferguson to sign from Real Madrid appears to be a masterstroke and with all their rivals making a faltering start, the Gunners have already established a five-point cushion at the top. But Rooney is remaining cautious about their threat. For there have been plenty of times in the past when Arsenal appeared capable of mounting a sustained challenge, only for it to peter out when the pressure starts to be applied later in the campaign.

I keep saying he's still the best team player in the Premier League by some distance.

Sports Media 101: Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney is Looking for His Teammates to Take Their Champions League...
Robin likely fitness to face will be a major boost for as the striker's excellent scoring rate against Saturday's visitors could answer manager David call for more goals. The Dutchman, who missed the midweek win over because of toe and groin injuries, has netted eight goals in seven league matches against who conceded an 89th-minute equaliser at home to last weekend to draw 1-1, have not got off to the best of starts in their title defence and have yet to string together back-to-back wins in the league. They beat Sociedad 1-0 on Wednesday but despite many chances to score, particularly for Wayne Rooney, the victory was the result of an own goal and Moyes is keen for his players to start finding the net more often. "It's a big part of the game that you don't want to concede any goals but in the same breath we'd like to score more goals so (we are) not putting ourselves in that position," Moyes told a news conference on Friday. His side host the Premier League's least productive team in front of goal, with ...
Manager David Moyes has confirmed Robin Van Persie should be fit to return for Manchester United when the Premier League champions entertain Stoke. Van Persie sat out Wednesday's Champions League victory over Real Sociedad with a combination of niggling problems. But it appears the Dutchman's absence will be a brief one. "Robin has a good chance," said Moyes. "He had a problem with his toes and a little bit with his groin. But he has had a little bit of training as well and he should be okay." Moyes confirmed experienced defenders Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand were also progressing well. However, England duo Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley remained on the sidelines. "Danny has fluid on his knee," the Scot said. "Tom is still recovering from his calf." Moyes refused to comment on reports United were set to offer striker Wayne Rooney a contract extension. However, the Scot did admit Rooney was in top form at present. "It's been great working with Wayne because he's an excellent footballer," he said. "I've ...
Manchester United moved a step closer to the Champions League knockout stages with a narrow victory over Real Sociedad. Inigo Martinez's second-minute own goal - which also owed much to superb work by Wayne Rooney - ensured United maintained their unbeaten record in the competition this season. United Manager David Moyes will have made three points his sole objective after the disappointing 1-1 Premier League draw at home to Southampton on Saturday and in a week when their European campaign has been reduced to a sideshow by revelations in former manager Sir Alex Ferguson's new autobiography. And on the night when United gave a trial to Old Trafford's new 'singing section', they at least had something to celebrate - unlike the 6,000 colourful visiting fans who followed Sociedad.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was glad on Wednesday former manager Alex Ferguson had now backtracked on comments that triggered months of speculation over the player's future. Before bowing out after winning a 13th Premier League trophy of his almost 27-year reign at Old Trafford in May, Ferguson said the England international had asked for a transfer and his words led to a close season of rumours that Rooney was on his way out.

Alex Ferguson made a career out of bullying referees, opposing players and anyone who crossed his path. Now he's hidden behind a ghost author to attack the players who won him trophies... David Beckham, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Keane, Hargreaves, Wayne Rooney... (well he would, wouldn't he...) Redknapp has put out a book and already been called a liar by Billy Bonds, Julian *** Steven Gerrard. The Premier League is a genuinely better place without them.
In terms of goals and action it has been an unremarkable start to the season for Southampton, but the unspectacular has been the basis for an opening two months that sees them milling around the Champions League qualification spots after eight matches. Robin Van Persie's goal against Saints at the weekend, in the build-up to which Wayne Rooney might even have been flagged offside, was only the third they have conceded all season, giving Mauricio Pochettino's side the second-best defensive record in the top five European leagues this season behind Roma (1). Key to that record and at the heart of that defence has been their only two ever-present outfielders, Dejan Lovren and Jose Fonte, who rank first and third in WhoScored.com's statistically calculated ratings amongst Premier League centre-backs this season, with respective ratings of 7.67 and 7.48. Saints impeccable 'goals against' tally is the result of the players' nigh-on perfect implementation of Pochettino's pressing game, rallying in attacking area ...
Premier League - Fergie: I'm not settling old scores The eagerly-awaited update to "Managing My Life", his first extensive view on the world, published in the wake of United's historic 1999 Treble-winning campaign, landed on Tuesday morning. Ferguson then spoke for 45 minutes at a press conference in central London. All the expected topics were raised. Indeed, chapters have been devoted to Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Liverpool, David Beckham and Wayne Rooney, all of whom Ferguson fell out with at some stage of his magnificent career. It makes grim reading for some at times. And Ferguson was equally forthright under wider questioning afterwards. But he insisted it was only a summing up of events of significance he felt United fans deserved to read about. "You talk about the number of players I have had," he said. "There are bound to be one or two issues and you have to deal with them. "It is not a matter of settling scores. It is a matter of explaining why I had to make certain decisions. "For all the ...
