Victor Lindelof shuts down Manchester United exit speculation

Sweden international Victor Lindelof has clarified that he is fully committed to the Red Devils and he has never considered a fresh challenge away from the club. The centre-back was frequently linked with a move to Barcelona during the summer and his agent recently acknowledged that the Red Devils turned down an enquiry from the Spanish champions.


Since then, Lindelof has penned a fresh five-year deal with the Red Devils with the option for another 12 months and he has now stated that he is clearly content with the proceedings at the club, he told Expressen: “A lot has been written, but as far as I am concerned I have a contract with the Red Devils and I am a loyal type. For me it was never a doubt, I wanted to stay at United and believe in what we do, that’s why I signed a renewal. I love to represent United and wear that shirt every day. My goal since I arrived is to win titles and do good for the fans, but I haven’t won anything yet so my big goal is to do it.”

Carragher believes Liverpool need to capitalise on Manchester City’s slow start

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes the Reds must capitalise on Manchester City’s stuttering start to the Premier League season. The Citizens have been hampered by injuries to central defensive duo Aymeric Laporte and John Stones and the former is expected to be sidelined for a significant part of the season following a knee surgery.


Speaking on TalkSPORT, Carragher said that the Citizens have been hampered by multiple injury concerns at the heart of the backline and that has contributed to the Reds gaining an eight-point advantage at the top of the standings. He added that the Merseyside outfit must not get carried away with the outcome and they need to capitalise as much as possible.

Anthony Martial speaks on blossoming partnership with Rashford

Anthony Martial has spoken about his blossoming partnership with Marcus Rashford this season. Both Martial and Rashford have scored two Premier League goals respectively this term but the former has been entrusted with the role of leading the line following the summer departure of Romelu Lukaku.


In an interview covered by Sky Sports, Martial said that there is a competition between him and Rashford in training as they seek to outclass each other with the goals scored. The Frenchman added that he does not have any concerns interchanging positions with Rashford during the game as it only increases the goalscoring threat.

Solskjaer wants more than just fourth with Manchester United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that the club won’t be satisfied with a push for the top four next season. The Red Devils were far off from competing for the Premier League title last season as they finished sixth on the table, but Ole is aiming to make amends with a strong showing next term.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Solskjaer said that the top four remains the minimum objective and United should push further for potential silverware, given the reputation of the club, he told: “We’ve got to aim for further up than fourth, we’ve got to, that’s just being at Manchester United. I’d rather be an optimist and be wrong than a pessimist and be right. I can’t say that these players won’t be challenging for big trophies because they have the quality. They do have the chance and we just need that consistency. We need a good start and we need to keep working every single day and not get our eyes off the targets.”

Jamie Carragher suggests Tottenham are guaranteed a top-four spot

Liverpool legend-turned-pundit Jamie Carragher has said that Tottenham Hotspur are assured of one of the remaining two Champions League places, considering they have the easier Premier League run-in. Only three points separate third-placed Tottenham Hotspur from sixth-placed Manchester United but Carragher has made his mind up regarding Spurs’ qualification for next season’s Champions League.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Carragher indicated that Chelsea squandered the chance to win on Monday night where they only managed a 2-2 draw against Burnley at Stamford Bridge. He added that the Blues could now tussle with Manchester United for the final Champions League place with Spurs likely to cement the third spot for the season.

GIGGS LEFT UNIMPRESSED

Ryan Giggs, one of the legends to have donned the jersey of Manchester United, was not amused by the fact that the club youngster Marcus Rashford had a cap on when he came out to address the reporters at the conclusion of the Manchester derby last night.

“I don’t know why he is wearing that cap, but that might be just me – old school, not like the modern Footballer now.” Giggs was quoted saying by METRO.

Former Manchester United ace believes Romelu Lukaku was missed against Wolves

Former Manchester United graduate Sylvan Ebanks-Blake believes the Red Devils missed the services of Romelu Lukaku during the club’s 2-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup quarter-final. The Red Devils had gone into the game following their first league loss of the turn of the year against Arsenal but their fortunes did not change with Wolves putting up a stellar counterattacking performance to outwit their backline.

Speaking to MUTV after the game, Ebanks-Blake highlighted that Lukaku was missed in the United frontline, given his form showcased over the past month under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He added that the Belgian has the additional trait of contributing towards his teammates’ goals which could have likewise proved useful against a physically-built Wolves backline.

David de Gea speaks on Manchester United’s improved defensive showing

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.

Speaking on MUTV, the Spain international was pleased with the progress made in the backline, which had been the prime area of concern under ex-boss Jose Mourinho. He added that the improvement at the back has directly contributed to the effectiveness in the frontline and hopefully the club can stretch the current winning run.

Jesse Lingard hails Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s impact at Manchester United

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.

Speaking to Soccer AM, Lingard praised the manager’s impact over the past month with the club and suggested that the Norwegian has offered the players with more freedom to express themselves, he said: “Ole has been great since he came in. He has given a lot of advice, and he has let us play free, which is the main thing.

Mourinho backs Dalot for a long United career

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.

Mourinho seemed very impressed with the kind of skills and temperament the young man has displayed in his first few fixtures, but the manager has also urged the fans and the media not to expect him to deliver the goods every game because he doesn’t have a lot of experience to show a very high level of consistency. He is new, not only to the Premiership but to the senior level Football altogether.
