Marouane Fellaini and Wayne Rooney start for Manchester United against Chelsea

Marouane Fellaini, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata start for Manchester United as they play Chelsea in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge. Manchester United start with the absolutely awful Marouane Fellaini, who unfortunately recovered from his injury suffered against Stoke. Fellaini is partnered by Michael Carrick, with the same team chosen as started in the previous match. Borthwick-Jackson, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian are ahead of David de Gea. In attack, Wayne Rooney is supported by Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard on the wings, with Juan Mata at number 10 against his...

Manchester United bid £23 million for Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi

Manchester United made a £23 million bid for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi. The Guardian says that Louis van Gaal believes the speculation over his job, and specifically Jose Mourinho replacing him is 'hurtful nonsense.' It's not nonsense - talks are ongoing. It might be hurtful, but he could have kept all this at bay by being a less awful manager this season, and stopped being so unambitious and cautious. It is often tempting to have sympathy for Van Gaal, as it clearly isn't a happy experience for him right now, but he does play Marouane Fellaini every match. In the Mail, Oliver...

Leeds, Pogba and Di Maria: here's what people ask about Manchester United

According to the BBC, these are the five most popular questions that people ask Google about Manchester United. No, "Marouane Fellaini - why?" doesn't feature. It's all a bit quiet out there. Manchester United's competence at the weekend, coupled with the closure of transfer window, has left a large hole where either anger or speculation should be, and so the Busby Babe must do what all forelock-tugging English subjects do in such dire situations. We turn to the BBC. Over on the BBC website is a quite interesting list entitled "What are the top questions asked about your club?" Essentially...

Michael Carrick and Matteo Darmian return as Manchester United take on Stoke City

Louis van Gaal has made two changes from the team that beat Derby County in the FA Cup. Manchester United have made two changes from the team that beat Derby County in the FA Cup on the weekend, with Matteo Darmian and Michael Carrick coming in for Guillermo Varela and Morgan Schneiderlin respectively. United's big new January signi ... oh, no, sorry, we didn't make one. Oh well! Marouane Fellaini is, of course, still in the team, with Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera having to settle for a spot on the bench. Stoke City line up with what seems to be quite an offensively-minded team. Their...

How should Manchester United line up against Stoke City?

Will Manchester United choose Wayne Rooney and Memphis to play against Stoke City in their Premier League match? It's fair to assume that Louis van Gaal will continue to make terrible decisions with his team selection and oversee another useless performance, this time against Stoke City at home. Let's face it, Marouane Fellaini will again turn up in central midfield and stink the place out. Wayne Rooney will continue to be able to do nothing but shoot, and the rest of the side are so depressed they'll be awful. The defence, including the plainly bad Daley Blind and Chris Smalling, will not...

Marouane Fellaini starts for Manchester United against Derby

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has chosen Marouane Fellaini to start against Derby Country despite him being utterly useless. Louis van Gaal deserves to be sacked, for yet another crime, this time choosing Marouane Fellaini as a starter against Derby County. The decision comes despite Fellaini being obviously the very worst player in the United squad (Nick Powell has joined Hull City on loan to end the debate). Anybody who is watching the match tonight and who is not being paid to endure it is either self-harming or deluded, and with most Manchester United fans these days, you'd...

Manchester United vs Southampton, 2016 Premier League: Time, TV schedule, team news, online and live stream

Manchester United vs Southampton, 2016 Premier League: Time, TV schedule, team news, online and live stream Manchester United play Southampton with the chance to finish as high as fourth, as long as results go their way. United will probably be without Ashley Young - out for a long time, according to Louis van Gaal - Bastian Schweinsteiger, Phil Jones and Nick Powell. Marouane Fellaini is likely to partner Morgan Schneiderlin in midfield, though Michael Carrick could be brought back. Jesse Lingard struggled against Liverpool, so Juan Mata or Memphis may come from the subs' bench to take his...

Edinson Cavani approaches Manchester United over transfer

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani wants to move to Manchester United and has spoken to the club. Adnan Januzaj is expected to be back in the squad against Southampton. Jesse Lingard is the player at risk from being dropped - Marouane Fellaini should be, too, but won't be - so he could be back in action relatively soon. You can read about that in the Guardian. In the Mirror, United have a trophy! Glory, glory! United will apparently reach the top of football's rich list. Just not anywhere near the best on the pitch, so questions might be asked of Ed Woodward by fans, if not the...

Liverpool 0-1 Manchester United: five taking points from Anfield | Jamie Jackson

Louis van Gaal’s side will have to play better to make an unlikely title charge, Marouane Fellaini does little to win over his detractors, and Jürgen Klopp gets his tactics wrong against a United team there for the takingThe victory on Sunday at Anfield made it four wins from the four times Louis van Gaal has sent out his Manchester United side against Liverpool. It may quieten the multitude of Van Gaal naysayers who support the club – for a week at least – and more importantly it lifts United to within two points of a Champions League place and seven off the top of the Premier League....
