Terrible Manchester United booed off against PSV

Manchester United were booed off by their fans after a 0-0 draw with PSV Eindhoven in their Champions League match Manchester United fans booed their side off the pitch after a miserable 0-0 draw with PSV Eindhoven. United are now at risk of falling out of the Champions League. If PSV win their game against CSKA Moscow in the next round, and Manchester United fail to win their match, they will drop down into the Europa League. Louis van Gaal started the poor performance by brining the wretched and awful Wayne Rooney back into the game after he missed the victory against Watford. Juan Mata,...

Manchester United 0-0 PSV: Toothless performance puts qualification in doubt

It was another dull night at Old Trafford, as Manchester United failed to create many chances and failed to score any of them. Manchester United singularly failed to do what they needed to do last night, and could only manage to draw 0-0 with a well-organised but entirely unspectacular PSV Eindhoven side. Both Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial missed presentable chances, but it will be the limp surrender in the second half that lingers longest. The first half was 45 minutes of largely unthrilling competence. But though they failed to score, United weren't quite at their tedious worst: Wayne...

Manchester United confirmed their team to play PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League, with Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial returning to the side.

Herrera is replaced by Rooney, and Juan Mata is dropped in favour of the returning Martial. Goalscorer Memphis retains his place. Marouane Fellaini makes a return to the...

Manchester United need to rediscover the art of late goals

Last Saturday, with a little help, Bastian Schweinsteiger scored Manchester United's first important late goal of the season. It's a habit the team desperately need to rediscover. Let's start with some definitions, shall we? That's always fun. Let's says that a late goal is any goal that comes once the clock has ticked around to 80'. And let's say that a late, important goal is one that turns a losing position into a drawing one, or a drawing position into a winning one. So, for example, the 1999 Champions League final had two late, important goals: Teddy Sheringham's equaliser, then Ole...

Bastian Schweinsteiger and Ander Herrera miss training ahead of PSV match

Manchester United midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger and Ander Herrera missed training ahead of their Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven. Luke Shaw has been excused from attending the PSV match tonight, as he is due a check-up on his injury to see how it is progressing. As well as that, Louis van Gaal said Shaw was 'fed up' recently, and so Van Gaal has decided to give him four days off. The memories of the team that broke his leg, and the slog of recovery may be hitting now. It's just hard work with no end in sight for months, so it would hardly be a surprise if he was feeling...

Jesse Lingard is "the English Andrés Iniesta", says ex-Manchester United coach

According to former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen, United's latest first-teamer could be go on to be one of the best in the world. Rene Meulensteen's managerial career didn't go particularly well, but during his time at Manchester United he was a generally well-respected coach, and so when he says something that sounds on the surface to be completely ridiculous, we should always remember that he knows better than we do. That said, come on: Rene Meulensteen discusses Jesse Lingard's progress with #UnitedReview - out on Wednesday! https://t.co/h4OcyuAWa0...

How should Manchester United line up against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League?

Manchester United play in the Champions League against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League - which players should they use? Manchester United take on PSV Eindhoven as they look to secure Champions League group stage qualification. PSV have been the only side to beat United in the Champions League this season, and when the two sides played one another in the Netherlands, it was Hector Moreno's ridiculous tackle which broke Luke Shaw's leg. United's injury list has continued to grow, with Phil Jones and Ander Herrera likely unavailable for Wednesday's match. Anthony Martial's knock,...

Manchester United target Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale from Real Madrid

Manchester United are interested in securing one of Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. Real Madrid have a terrible manager and a worse set of fans. Their president is a complete fool and an egotist, some might think. Anyway, they seem happy to be getting rid of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, and there's a chance that Gareth Bale could be sacrificed with the press out to criticise him. It's true neither of them have been up to the standards of last season, but they are managed by Rafael Benitez. The Mirror thinks United could be in for either of them. Also, according to...

Louis van Gaal wants Cristiano Ronaldo and Arjen Robben, and many more January signings

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal wants Bayern Munich forward Arjen Robben in January and Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid next summer. Juventus central defender Daniele Rugani has been linked with Arsenal and Manchester United, according to the Mirror. Now, let's have a think, if Arsene Wenger wants to buy a defender then there's a 99% chance that he is absolutely terrible. Avoid. In the Manchester Evenings News, Louis van Gaal has said United are having a 'lousy period' with injuries, and are going to struggle to have Phil Jones or Ander Herrera ready for the midweek Champions...

Video highlights: Watford 1-2 Manchester United

Watch Memphis and Bastian Schweinsteiger fire Manchester United to a 2-1 victory over Watford in their Premier League match. Manchester United briefly went top of the Premier League table with a late 2-1 win over Watford in the Premier League. Leicester leapfrogged them with a win away to Newcastle United, but United are now the form side of the traditional challengers for trophies in England. Untied took an early lead when Ander Herrera's cross from deep was skilfully side-footed past Heurelho Gomes in the Watford goal, and United appeared in control and likely to take an easy...

Watford 1-2 Manchester United: Player Ratings

Player ratings from Manchester United's 2-1 win at Watford where Bastian Schweinsteiger's late intervention and Memphis's early goal were enough. David de Gea - 8 One excellent save from Almen Abdi's deflected shot kept United ahead towards the end of the match, and there was little that he could have done from the penalty. He dived the right way, but Troy Deeney's penalty was just behind him and too well hit. His consistency is remarkable, and his weaknesses are so slight as to be of little concern. Ashley Young - 6 He was aggressive in attack, sending in plenty of crosses and taking on...

Video: Louis van Gaal says he is a 'happy coach' after Manchester United beat Watford

Manchester United coach Louis van Gaal said he was a 'happy coach' after watching his side beat Watford 2-1 with goals from Memphis and an own goal from Troy Deeney. Louis van Gaal continued his lucky streak of alighting on solutions to problems through luck in having in hand forced by injuries. This time Memphis was called into action as a striker, where he scored the opening goal for Manchester United against Watford in their 2-1 win. He then claimed that he had identified Memphis's best position, despite not trying him there all season while Wayne Rooney utterly stank out the whole side...

Watford 1-2 Manchester United - United go top with smash-and-grab victory

Memphis and Herrera start as Manchester United take on Watford

The lineups are out for Manchester United's clash with Watford, with Memphis Depay and Ander Herrera both included. The teams are out for Manchester United's early Premier League clash against Watford, and the big news is that Memphis Depay has been given the nod up top. James Wilson, who was the other option to start as the lone striker, hasn't even made the bench. Marcos Rojo's long trip back from South America has cost him his place in the starting lineup, with Daley Blind filling in at left-back instead. Youngsters Sean Goss and Marcus Rashford join the Italian international in warming...

Watford vs Manchester United, 2015 Premier League: Time, TV schedule, team news, online and live stream

Watford vs Manchester United, 2015 Premier League: Time, TV schedule, team news, online and live stream Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is expected to start out-of-favour Memphis as injuries start to mount. In attack, Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney are both injured after international duty, and Marouane Fellaini has been unable to recover from an injury which prevented him playing for Belgium last week. Antonio Valencia is out for several months after a foot operation, and Luke Shaw continues his rehabilitation from a broken leg. The midfield is not spared from problems, with...

Manchester United expected to start Memphis against Watford

Manchester United forward Memphis is expected to start against Watford with Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial both injured. Louis van Gaal has said he expected more from Memphis so far this season. It's fair enough. While few expected him to match the number of goals and assists he got in the Netherlands last season, he's a very exciting talent, and it's therefore surprising to see his decision making being quite so naive at Manchester United. Anyway, he's young, and could be one of the options to play in attack as Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney are both injured. You can read more in...

Match Preview: Watford vs. Manchester United

Manchester United travel to Vicarage Road for Saturday's early Premier League kickoff. Here's what to watch out for. Praise the footballing gods, for domestic action is about to return. Manchester United will look to bounce off the international break with a win away at Premier League newcomers Watford in Saturday's early kickoff -- though that may well be easier said than done. Louis van Gaal's men haven't conceded a league goal since a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal back in early October, though they've found scoring a rather tougher task. Meanwhile, the Hornets may well have only won promotion...

Manchester United striker crisis: Rooney and Martial both injured

We don't know who Manchester United will be playing up front against Watford, but it won't be Wayne Rooney or Anthony Martial. There is an ancient Chinese curse that says: he who embarks on a Premier League season without sufficient depth at striker, must not be surprised when he ends up with no teeth. And the truth of this maxim has been proved once again, as Manchester United will return from the international break in something of a state. Louis van Gaal tells #MUTV Carrick, Martial, Fellaini and Valencia are all injured, while Rooney is ill. All will miss Watford. — Manchester United...
