Premier League Analysis: Chelsea Stumbling Towards Finish Line; United Hot On City’s Heels

Six points ahead of the second-placed team, with a game in hand and with a mere nine games left to play in the season – Jose Mourinho couldn’t have wished for a better position to be in at the end of March. His team, however, haven’t looked convincing since the 5-0 defeat of Swansea in January, and the last-gasp victory at Hull City did nothing to ease the anxiety of the Blues’ faithful. Perhaps still reeling from the public opprobrium of their Champions League exit at the hands of PSG, Mourinho’s men have looked extremely suspect defensively, and are struggling to dominate games with an out-of-form pivot of Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas at the centre of the park. Arsenal, meanwhile, are the form team in the league. With Olivier Giroud seemingly scoring at will, the Gunners have registered six wins on the bounce – finding themselves a solitary point behind Manchester City. Manchester United’s season seemed to go from […] Read more »

Gareth Bale Will Turn Man United Into Serious Title Contenders, Claims Scholes

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has said that Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale would be perfect for his former club and turn Louis van Gaal’s team into serious title contenders.

Incredible Ibrahimovic Could Become Manchester United’s New Cantona – Schmeichel

One of the most high profile goalkeepers to ever play in the Premier League, Peter Schmeichel believes Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic would fit in perfectly at former club Manchester United. In the past few weeks, Ibra has been under constant media scrutiny in France where he has made some controversial statements. Yet, it is that controversial nature that Schmeichel points to when he talks about the Sweden international. “What Zlatan does with PSG is quite incredible,” he told L’Equipe. “He gives PSG so much credibility and visibility. There we rumors last summer sending him to Manchester United. I said back then that he was built to play for United.” “Why was Cantona so strong when I was there and not that strong in Leeds or France? Because it’s Manchester United,” he added. While Zlatan has very quickly squashed rumours about a move away from PSG, speculation surrounding his future continues to circulate. Over the years, the 33-year-old has been […] Read more »
