Manchester United vs. Ajax lineups: Blind, Fellaini and Mkhitaryan all handed starts

The lineups are out for the Europa League final. José Mourinho has named the team with which he has trusted Manchester United's entire season, and that will face Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm in an hour's time. There have been three big calls: Chris Smalling and Daley Blind form the central defensive pairing, with Phil Jones made to settle for a place on the bench; Marouane Fellaini is preferred to Michael Carrick in the centre of midfield; and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is preferred to Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. Clearly he hasn't listened to the great unwashed of...

Fluent Tottenham upset Man United's man-marking plan with set-piece goals

Craig Burley credits Spurs for their performance in their White Hart Lane finale, but says Man United look to have given up. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho tried an unconventional man-marking system in a bid to stop Tottenham, but Mauricio Pochettinos side still ran out 2-1 winners in a fitting White Hart Lane farewell. Hampered by heavy rotation ahead of the Europa League final, Manchester United followed a tailor-made defensive plan. Instead of marking zonally, Michael Carrick and Axel Tuanzebe tracked Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen respectively, while Jesse Lingard protected the...

On this day: Manchester United lift the 2006-07 Premier League trophy

That team turned out to be alright, didn’t it? “Remember when is the lowest form of conversation.” With all due respect to Tony Soprano, we’re feeling a bit nostalgic today. Ten years ago today, Manchester United lifted the Premier League trophy after a three year drought. It was the first full year of Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidić and that now legendary defense. It was Michael Carrick’s debut season at United, playing alongside Paul Scholes in a midfield that was light on muscle but heavy on elegance. It was of course, Cristiano Ronaldo’s first world-class season, and (*Paddy...

Wayne Rooney may play in midfield against Swansea

Desperate times, desperate measures. Hello, reader. If you’re reading this, and you can do a decent job in midfield, please report to Old Trafford as soon as possible. Manchester United needs your help. Marouane Fellaini got himself stupidly suspended, Timothy Fosu-Mensah dislocated his shoulder, and Paul Pogba remains injured. As such, the only warm bodies available are Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick, the latter of whom is in no shape to be playing twice in four days, particularly if he is to be called upon next Thursday as well. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Assuming...
