There’s something wrong with Rashford, Greenwood – Roy Keane

Manchester United legend, Roy Keane has expressed his concerns over Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood and says ‘something is amiss’ with the trio. Rashford has made a frustrating start to the season, returning from an injury that kept him away for a long period, limiting the 24-year-old to just three starts in all competitions. For Greenwood, the youngster impressed in the early stages of the season, netting three times in August, but has only found the back of the net once since. Keane told ITV, “Every case is different, Sancho hasn’t been getting many minutes recently. “The issue I suppose with Rashford and Greenwood is that whenever they’re selected it seems to be an issue. “I know they’ve had injuries, I understand that but we know their quality and whe...

Leicester end Man Utd run in 4-2 thriller

Leicester came from behind to win 4-2 against Manchester United and end their opponents' 29-game unbeaten run away from home. Mason Greenwood had opened the scoring with a stunning strike but Youri Tielemans produced one of his own before Caglar Soyuncu put Leicester ahead late in the game. Marcus Rashford looked to have salvaged something but Jamie Vardy immediately restored the advantage before Patson Daka ensured the result in stoppage time. It was no more than Leicester deserved as Brendan Rodgers' side played the more proactive football throughout to end a run of four games without a win. The defeat leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under further scrutiny as United's own winless run extends to three games as they continue to look less than the sum of their expensive parts.

The defeat against Arsenal means Tottenham are now six points behind fourth-placed West Ham with seven games remaining. “It’s a really sad afternoon. I am really not bothered about the goal,” Son told Tottenham’s website. “I really wanted to win, especially after the last game [at Newcastle] when I came on, back from injury, we were leading and drew. “I don’t know what to say – I’m reall...

Solskjaer Talks on Chances of Catching up with Man City, Identifies Problem with Pogba

  Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he has a ‘gripe’ with midfielder, Paul Pogba after the Frenchman missed an excellent chance in their 3-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday. Son Heung-min of Spurs fired the home side ahead a few minutes to half-time after Edinson Cavani’s goal was ruled out for a foul. But the Red Devils came from the break scoring three goals through Fred, Cavani and Mason Greenwood to secure a 3-1 win. Pogba had a clear-cut chance in the second half to extend their lead but opted for an elaborate backheel which was blocked. And the Norwegian boss said he would continue to pester Pogba until he starts making use of chances in front of goal. “Yeah, he’s getting better and better, excellent,’ Solskjaer told beIN Sports. “He...

Tottenham vs Man United: I’ll Starve my Son if he Acts as Son Did – Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lambasted Son Heung-min for the role the South Korean played in Manchester United’s disallowed goal during their 3-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday. Manchester United legend, Roy Keane had earlier slammed the South Korea international for acting embarrassingly. Solskjaer and his men thought they had taken the lead 10 minutes before the breakthrough of Edinson Cavani but the goal was ruled out after a VAR check that showed that Scott McTominay put his hand in Son’s face. Son then scored for Tottenham before half time but United came back very strong in the second half with Fred, Cavani and Mason Greenwood all scoring to give the Red Devils all three points. However, Solskjaer was not happy with the reaction of Son and Spurs’ players for the disallowed ...

Man United Come From Behind To Beat Tottenham Hotspursm, Stretch Unbeaten  Away Run

Manchester United came from behind to beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 away in Sunday’s Premier League clash and strengthen their place in second position. The win at Spurs means Man United are now unbeaten in 23 consecutive away Premier League games – the second-longest streak in English top-flight history. Second half goals from Fred, Edison Cavani and substitute Mason Greenwood avenged Man United’s 6-1 scandalous defeat to Spurs at Old Trafford earlier in the Season. The Red Devils remain in second on 63 points while Spurs missed the chance to go close to fourth place West Ham as they are in seventh on 49 points. Man United thought they had taken the lead on 33 minutes through Cavani who finished off a neat pass from Paul Pogba but the goal was disallowed after Scott McTominay...

Man Utd Suffer Big Injury Blow after Brighton win Ahead of Granada Clash

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted he was forced to withdraw Marcus Rashford during their 2-1 victory over Brighton due to an injury concern. Rashford made it 1-1 after former United forward Danny Welbeck gave Brighton an early lead. Mason Greenwood sealed the comeback win with an 83rd-minute header, but Rashford was already off the pitch having been replaced by Daniel James. Speaking after the victory, Solskjaer said: “I’m not sure. He got caught with a tackle so he had to come off. “Let’s see how he goes again. Marcus doesn’t want to miss any games or any minutes, but he had to come off. “It’s one of them again. Your fingers are crossed and you hope he’s going to recover from it. He had to come off but he’s a tough one.” Rashford...

Dean Henderson Names Man United’s Best Finisher

Manchester United goalkeeper, Dean Henderson, has named Mason Greenwood as the club’s best finisher ahead of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. According to Henderson, Greenwood is up there with Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane. The Red Devils shot-stopper said this ahead of Man United’s Premier League clash with Brighton on Sunday. Asked if Mason Greenwood is certainly the ‘best finisher’ at Man United, Henderson told the UMM YouTube channel: “Yeah, by far… By far. “Both feet as well. He is up there with Harry Kane, you know. Kane is the best finisher I have ever seen in my life.” Greenwood has endured an underwhelming 2020/21 season at Old Trafford so far. The 19-year-old was terrific during the 2019/20 campaign, scoring 17 goals in all competitions for Man U...

Fred Attacked after Man Utd’s 3-1 Defeat to Leicester City

  Manchester United midfielder, Fred, was the target of racist trolls on social media, following their 3-1 defeat at Leicester City on Sunday. Fred’s error led to Kelechi Iheanacho making it 1-0 for the hosts. The Brazilian was then brushed aside by Youri Tielemans, who made it 2-1 after Mason Greenwood equalized for United. After the game, Fred’s Instagram account was filled with comments racial in nature. The Brazil international is one of several United players to be subjected to abuse in recent weeks. Marcus Rashford posted a statement about comments directed at him in late January, while Anthony Martial and Axel Tuanzebe were also targeted. Manchester United have previously condemned abuse directed at their players by “mindless idiots”.

What Solskjaer Said about Fred after Man Utd’s 3-1 Defeat at Leicester

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, refused to single out Fred for his errors during their 3-1 defeat to Leicester City in the FA Cup quarter-final on Sunday. Goals from Kelechi Iheanacho (twice) and Youri Tielemans secured the win for Brendan Rodgers’ men. Mason Greenwood netted what proved to be consolation for the Red Devils. Iheanacho’s first goal was as a result of sloppy backpass from Fred that left Dean Henderson stranded as Iheanacho rounded him to score. But Solskjaer refused to play the blame game. “We want to build from the back and want the players to be confident – sometimes it doesn’t work and that’s one time it didn’t. “When we win, we win together and when we lose, we lose together. “We’re not pointing fingers and blaming,” So...

Iheanacho Scores 2 Goals To Knock Man United Out Of The FA Cup

Leicester City moved into the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1981-82 as they eliminated Manchester United at King Power Stadium courtesy of 2 goals from Kelechi Iheanacho and one from Youri Tielemans. The Foxes took the lead when United midfielder Fred's backpass was intercepted by Kelechi Iheanacho, who went around goalkeeper Dean Henderson to score his fourth goal in two games. However, United equalised just before half time as Mason Greenwood steered the ball past Kasper Schmeichel after Donny van de Beek had dummied Paul Pogba's low cross from the left. But Youri Tielemans restored Leicester's lead with a low strike from the edge of the penalty area following a one-two with Iheanacho, who sealed the semi-final spot with a header 12 minutes from full-time.
