Manchester United’s injury situation was suddenly looking a whole lot better before the Liverpool game, but now, in typical fashion, things have changed for the worse. Anthony Martial has a minor issue, but now another forward has been hit with a more serious problem.

If stagnant rock & roll was a music genre, it could perfectly summarize the month of October for Manchester United. Rolled over at Arsenal, bossed Everton at Goodison Park and absolutely stagnant for the rest of the month. From being top to trailing the leaders, out of the League Cup in appalling fashion and somewhat uneasy ride in the Champions League.
It is a midweek game again for Manchester United. This time around it is not under the glaring lights of Champions League football, but domestic cup action. Capital One Cup duties beckon and the competition is usually seen as an ideal opportunity for the youngsters to get a game or two.
The Saints and the Devils will lock horns once again as Southampton host Manchester United. Both teams having something to prove will only add even more fuel in fiery rivalry between the two teams, making it a game you cannot miss.
Midweek Champions League nights are back for Manchester United and the Red Devils will look to do so in style against the challengers in the form of PSV Eindhoven, Wolfsburg and CSKA Moscow. First stop – a homecoming for Memphis Depay: PSV away.
3-5-2. Lingard and Januzaj as wing-backs. Tyler Blackett in defence and a woeful performance resulted in a 2:1 defeat against Swansea in Louis van Gaal’s first game in English football exactly year ago. Now, one year on, with steadier squad and bigger goals, Manchester United travel to South Wales for Iron Tulip’s 50th game in charge.
The midweek European win was accompanied by improvement in performance. Hopefully this puts an extra spring in Manchester United’s step and we see a more dazzling display for the home encounter against Newcastle.
It was not pretty or glamorous. It took an own goal and a deflection, but United have six points after two games and now it is time to shift focus to the Champions League Qualifer against Club Brugge.
Manchester United are back. And what a better way to celebrate it, than Tottenham at the Theatre of Dreams. Louis van Gaal takes control of the first game of the season, with a whole host of new faces in action, including Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Manchester United’s second summer tour under Louis Van Gaal has seen the Dutchman unveil his true character in full swing. From ordering Ed Woodward to complete Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger transfers by the beginning of the tour to wielding the axe for Valdes who was told he does not gel with the philosophy. The Iron Tulip’s presence has certainly been felt.
