Tottenham entertained Manchester United this afternoon in a clash that ended 2-2. Here are five things that we learned from the fixture at White Hart Lane.
Manchester United have travelled to Germany ahead of their Champions League tie with Bayer Leverkusen this evening, but I really do fear for the Red Devils. With Cardiff landing the latest blow to David Moyes' men and the injuries that the squad currently have, as well as the scintillating form that the Germans are in, I am certain that they will be travelling home without a share of the spoils. However, here are a few things that I would suggest the former Everton boss tries to make that statement false.
Manchester United currently have Antonio Valencia, Wilfried Zaha, Nani, Ashley Young and Adnan Jaznuzaj to choose from the the wings, as well as Ryan Giggs and Shinji Kagawa who can both play there, but Sports Direct News are reporting that another two wide men are now top of their priority list. The duo are Real Madrid's Angel Di Maria and Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez, but where they fit into the set up?
The Mirror say that Manchester United are watching former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic as they look to strengthen the middle of their squad, so I thought that I would take a moment to run through their current options and have a look where the Serbia international would fit in.
It's fair to say Manchester United aren't having the greatest season to date. They have already lost three and drawn three from their opening 12 games and sit seven points behind Arsenal in the Premier League, and some fans are starting to grow frustrating. But how can David Moyes kick-start their season into action and find some continuity in the form?
Manchester United's title hopes took another blow today when they drew at Cardiff City, but here are five things that we learned from the clash.
Manchester United fans, fear not. Your season may have seen a mixed bag already and you may be in the middle of an injury 'crisis', some of you may even be worried about your season ahead, but the Daily Mail are reporting that a move for Cristiano Ronaldo is not yet dead in the water. But should David Moyes get his mitts on the Real Madrid forward, then where would he fit into the current set up?
Manchester United travel to Cardiff this afternoon in the latter part of 'Super Sunday' and while most expect the Red Devils to pick up a routine victory in the south of Wales, my money is going on the not-so-blue-birds to pick up a result. Here's why.
Born in Cardiff, Ryan Giggs will naturally want to be involved with Manchester United's clash with the Welsh outfit on Sunday. The 39-year-old has managed to rack up a tally of 951 games for United in his 23 and a bit seasons with the Old Trafford outfit, but he has never had a run out against the club based in the city of his birth, but this could change at the weekend.
When I was eight years old, football was about the entire team rushing to the ball in order to get a touch to impress the proud parents on the touchline. A lot of the time it was one-touch football, merely because none of us had the technical facility, or in fact an awareness of what we were doing, and it was all kick and rush. Bad coaching, perhaps, or just the fact that were only eight. However, astonishingly, the Mirror are reporting that Chelsea and Manchester United are fighting for the signature of Claudio Gabriel Nancufil, who at just eight years of age is being likened to Lionel Messi.
When Paul Pogba upped sticks and left Manchester United last year it was seen as a backwards step in his early career by some. Fast forward 18 months and the Frenchman is taking the world by storm, piece by piece. His time at Juventus is going swimmingly and he is conjuring up interest from the elite of European football, including numerous Premier League clubs. However, the Daily Mail are reporting that Pogba will reject the advances.
Nemanja Vidic is a real warrior of a player and has served Manchester United admirably over the years. He arrived from Spartak Moscow in 2006and has since established himself as a fan favourite - playing 276 games for the Old Trafford club and scoring 18 goals. And now, alongside Michael Carrick, he has signed a contract extension according to the Daily Star, which is my opinion could be David Moyes' best move since taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson.
