Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has spoken about the improvement showcased in the defensive front since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as the caretaker boss. The Red Devils have conceded just five times in the eight matches under Ole and this remains a drastic improvement on the 13 allowed from the preceding eight.
Glory Glory Man Utd!Welcome
Manchester United attacker Jesse Lingard has hailed the impact made by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since he took over the managerial reigns at the club. The Red Devils had struggled to secure regular wins under the guidance of ex-boss Jose Mourinho earlier in the campaign but the arrival of Solskjaer has changed their fortunes with eight straight wins in all competitions.
Jose Mourinho thinks that the teen-aged defender Diogo Dalot, who is also his compatriot, has a bright career ahead of him and he can go on to serve the Red Devils for a long period of time. Dalot was bought by United during the pre-season transfer window and he probably would have made his debut in the Premiership much before, but because of an injury he sustained, his debut was delayed and he finally got the first look-in versus Southampton FC.
Former Tottenham Hotspur star Micky Hazard believes Toby Alderweireld should decline the prospect of joining Manchester United, given the contrasting fortunes of both sides this term. The north London club are currently experiencing their best-ever season in the Premier League era while United are enduring the complete opposite with their worst beginning to a campaign.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has praised the efforts of young graduate Scott McTominay following the club’s 3-1 Premier League defeat at the hands of West Ham United. The Scotland international was handed a surprise start for the Red Devils in the central defensive role over the weekend and though, his performance was pretty average, Mourinho was pleased with his contribution.
Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera has hinted that he could sign a new Manchester United contract. The 29-year-old has been with the Red Devils since the summer of 2014 and though he has not been a regular starter, he has managed to rack over 160 appearances for the Mancunian giants across all competitions.
Manchester United are keen on bridging the gap with their more balanced city rivals this summer. Coach Jose Mourinho has been constantly criticized for his defensive tactics and safe way of play that does not even get the results a lot of time.
Premier League side Watford has fired its manager Marco Silva. The club felt the manager’s focus had shifted so they took the step to hopefully cut short the run of poor results. Watford are unhappy that Silva was open to an earlier move to Everton when an opportunity presented itself.
Manchester United are still on the Leon Goretzka chase, according to reports. The club wants the Schalke star to boost their options but the player is taking time to decide on his next career move. The 22-year old star has refused to put pen to paper in a new deal with the German side so the Bundesliga club has now given him a deadline to make a decision.
The midfielder is carefully considering his options but with time a limited resources, Schalke chiefs have asked him to decide his next move before the end of the month. His current deal expires at the end of the season and he has been heavily linked with a move away from the club. Schalke want him to renew terms or allow them negotiate terms of transfer else they’d lose him for free at the end of the season.
The last time when Manchester United had visited Watford, it had not turned out to be a good visit for them. They had been beaten by a margin of a couple of goals.
It was probably one of their worst days on the pitch under Jose Mourinho and ideally they would like revenge when they step on to the Vicarage Road Ground this Tuesday, but Mourinho doesn’t think it’s going to be any easier than the previous season. In fact he reckons if anything, it will be even more difficult.
