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

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...

Manchester United 2-0 Crystal Palace: Young Reds dispatch the Eagles with ease

The kids are alright. José Mourinho kept good on his promise to play the kids in Manchester United’s last league match of the season, fielding the youngest ever United starting XI in the Premier League era. Only Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Paul Pogba, Wayne Rooney, and Jesse Lingard of the regular seniors started against Crystal Palace, with four academy graduates making their full debut. With just fifteen minutes gone, one of those debutants made a dream impact. Paul Pogba’s raking through ball found Josh Harrop on the left of the box. The young attacker cut inside to beat his man,...

Manchester United 2016-17 Player Report Cards: Phil Jones

Jones showed promise, but couldn’t stay fit. Hang on...what year is this? In many ways, this season has been a microcosm of Phil Jones’ Manchester United career. There has been the tantalizing promise that somewhere inside that gormless bundle of limbs lives a very good central defender. There has been the occasional near-disastrous performance that is so lumbering and graceless that it is enough to give credence to the idea that Jones is actually a mastiff puppy, hopped up on Qualuudes, trapped inside a man’s body. And of course, there have been the injuries. Around the mid-point of...

Manchester City vs. Manchester United 2017 live stream: Time, TV schedule and how to watch Manchester Derby online

It’s Manchester’s own El Clásico. Except not as good. Manchester United’s biggest Premier League game left this season finds José Mourinho’s men limping into the Manchester derby. Paul Pogba is the latest to fall victim to injury, and he joins (*deep breath*) Zlatan Ibrahimović, Marcos Rojo, Juan Mata, Phil Jones, and Chris Smalling on the sidelines. Eesh. At least Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia are available again. The Manchester Evening News have confirmed the 19 man traveling squad: David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Joel Pereira; Antonio Valencia, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Matteo...
