Manchester United fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Evertonyesterday evening and as a result now sit ninth in the Premier League table, 12 points behind leaders Arsenal. TWELVE. United fans will rightly be frustrated, so here are three players who should see their places pulled from under them ahead of the club's clash with Newcastle at the weekend.
The January transfer window is going to be a huge one this time round for Manchester United - it could even be make or break for David Moyes' title hopes. With the Metro reportingthat the Red Devils will be moving for Leighton Baines, Ander Herrera and Ilkay Gundogan. But where would the trio fit into the side?
David Moyes gets the chance to get one over on his old team later today as Manchester United host Everton in what is shaping up to be a brilliant game. But while United hold the home advantage, and probably on paper as well, here is why I think Moyes and Wayne Rooney will be weeping at the hands, or feet in this case, of their former club.
The Manchester United squad, on the whole, is a very impressive one. They have two of the best strikers in the Premier League and possess a wealth of options at the back, all while a Spain international operates in goal. But there is one area of the pitch that they are notably weak in, and that's the midfield. For me, there is one man who fits the role that United are supposedly looking for, and that man is currently plying his trade with Chelsea.
Manchester United are currently preparing for their midweek fixture against Everton tonight in a fixture that will see David Moyes going up against his former club. So, ahead of the crucial clash I thought that I would go through a few options as to how the Red Devils should deal with the Toffees to gain the three points.
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?
