Liverpool thrash shambolic Man Utd to pile pressure on Ole

Ten-man Manchester United suffered one of their worst defeats in recent memory as rivals Liverpool piled pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 5-0 thrashing at Old Trafford. United's performance was nothing short of a shambles as Liverpool feasted on some inept defending and questionable tactics, going ahead after five minutes through Naby Keita's low finish having been released through on goal. Diogo Jota made it 2-0 (13) at the far post from Trent Alexander-Arnold's centre after miscommunication between Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw, before Mohamed Salah scored for the 10th straight game in all competitions, converting near post from Keita's pass (38) Image:Salah celebrates with Virgil van Dijk, right, after scoring his Liverpool's third goal vs Manchester United ...

Hause the hero after Bruno penalty howler

Bruno Fernandes missed a stoppage-time penalty as Aston Villa prevented Manchester United moving top of the Premier League with a deserved 1-0 victory at Old Trafford. Just when it seemed a catalogue of missed gilt-edged chances would cost Villa a first win at Old Trafford since 2009, defender Kortney Hause broke the deadlock two minutes from time with a brilliant near-post header past a helpless David de Gea. In a dramatic late finale, Hause went from hero to villain in the space of three minutes when he was adjudged to have blocked substitute Edinson Cavani's header with his arm in added time. VAR upheld the contentious on-field decision but Villa justice was served when penalty specialist Fernandes - having kept the ball from Cristiano Ronaldo - blazed woefully over the targe...

EPL: Moyes reacts to Mark Noble’s missed penalty against Man Utd

West Ham manager, David Moyes, has defended his decision to bring on Mark Noble, to take a stoppage-time penalty against Manchester United. With virtually the last kick of the game, Noble was introduced from the bench to take the spot kick, after Luke Shaw was punished for handball. The midfielder saw his poor effort saved by David De Gea, as United won 2-1. Moyes has rejected talk that their recent record of four misses from their last five came into his mind when he made the decision. Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “The thinking behind it? Look at his record. “I’d have been more disappointed if I hadn’t made the decision. “I made the decision, and it didn’t quite work today. I was more influenced by Noble’s record, rather than West Ham’s record.”

De Gea reacts after saving late penalty in Man Utd’s 2-1 win against West Ham

Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, has expressed happiness after saving a late penalty in Man United’s Premier League 2-1 win against West Ham United on Sunday. De Gea was suddenly thrown into the spotlight in the final minute of the match at the London Stadium when the Hammers were awarded a controversial late penalty. Man United had only just taken the lead with Jesse Lingard’s brilliant 89th-minute strike before referee Martin Atkinson pointed to the spot following a handball from Luke Shaw after consulting the TV monitor. De Gea eventually saved Mark Noble’s penalty to give Man United all three points against the hosts. “It was a bit crazy at the end, a great goal of Jesse, a stupid penalty, lucky penalty for them at the end of the game,” De Gea told MUTV. “Th...

Solskjaer demands new contracts for five Man Utd players

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, wants the club to tie down five players to new and improved contracts, the UK Sun reports. The Norwegian feels players like Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw should get pay rises. Solskjaer is also optimistic that Paul Pogba will sign an extension with United. The Red Devils boss wants his core group of players to be on similar wages, to protect dressing-room harmony. Fernandes’ salary of £100,000-a-week pales into comparison to some of his teammates, with David de Gea on £375,000 and and Pogba on £290,000. Maguire, Rashford and Shaw all earn around £190,000-a-week and will likely be offered similar terms to Fernandes, who scored a brilliant Premier League hat-trick during the 5-1 thrashing of L...
