Paul Ince Predicts Manchester United’s Fate Next Season

  Former Manchester United player, Paul Ince, has predicted that the Red Devils will face many issues next season. Ince stated this following Man United’s goalless draw with Leeds United in the Premier League over the weekend. Man United have been handed a headache ahead of the transfer window opening this summer. However, with several players set to leave Man United, Ince believes that spending money will be crucial to avoid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side drop in form. “They [Man United] are not as far off as we thought two years ago,” Ince told Sky Sports. “They are progressing gradually. “But on that performance [against Leeds], they are a long way, they have been so inconsistent this season it is hard to judge. “They need money, they need a striker.

Werner Reveals Team-mates’ Prediction as he Ends Chelsea Goal Drought

The Germany international had not scored in 14 games for club or country before his winner at London Stadium Timo Werner says Chelsea team-mates Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham predicted he would score after the German ended his 12-game goal drought with the winner at West Ham.

It was Werner’s ninth goal in all competitions for Chelsea this season but his first since a 2-0 win over Newcastle in February, with the striker celebrating by pointing to Hudson-Odoi and Abraham on the substitutes' bench.

Europa League: Peter Crouch predicts whether Arsenal, Man United could win trophy

Former Liverpool striker, Peter Crouch, predicted that he wouldn’t put money on Arsenal beating Manchester United or Roma in the Europa League final this season.

Mikel Arteta’s side will face Villarreal in the Europa League semi-final next week, while Manchester United will take on Roma in the other Europa League semi-final fixture. “They [Arsenal] will not be qualifying for Europe through the Premier League. “I look at them sitting in ninth, with 46 points, and I don’t see how any Arsenal fan could say the domestic season has been positive.

Super League: Why this Idea Will not go Far – Wenger warns Arsenal, Chelsea, Others

  Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has said the idea of a European Super League is a bad one. Wenger had predicted a breakaway European league almost 12 years ago and condemned the idea back then. Now that the plan has become reality, the Frenchman is still against the proposal. “I would say that it’s a bad idea,” Wenger told talkSPORT. “Football has to stay united. That is the most important thing and based on sporting merits and overall to respect the history of European football.” England’s ‘top six’ clubs including Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have all signed up for the Super League. But Wenger warned: “I believe personally that this idea will not go far.”

Gary Neville Predicts Likely Outcome of Liverpool vs Real Madrid

  Former Manchester United star, Gary Neville has predicted that Liverpool will be knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid on Wednesday evening. Liverpool were beaten 3-1 in Spain by Real Madrid in the first leg of the quarter-final ties and now have a mountain to climb at Anfield in the return leg. Although Jurgen Klopp’s side won their weekend Premier League clash 2-1 against Aston Villa, Neville believes Liverpool’s injury-time victory against Villa suggests that they will be unable to pull off the rest they require to knock Zinedine Zidane’s side out of Europe. Neville said on Sky Sports, “They [Liverpool] were really poor in Madrid in midweek, and they’ve given themselves a lot to do and I’m not sure they have got it in them to do it because at Anfield ...
