This Is Paul Pogba's World, We're Just Living In It

In Manchester United’s 2-0 victory against Chelsea, Paul Pogba put on a show. Displaying why he is the world’s most valuable midfielder, the Frenchman delivered an assist to Ander Herrera and even bagged a goal of his own.

In a match that more closely resembled a Lion tormenting a baby gazelle, Pogba was the brain behind United’s ferocious potency.

The Greatest Teams in Football History - Week Four: Manchester United ('95-'01)

The Greatest Teams in Football History - Week Four: Manchester United ('95-'01)

In the two-decade purple patch of arguably the greatest club in English history, determining the peak of their success proves challenging. Based on trophies, players, and legacy, the seven years from 1995 to 2001 are tough to beat.

Yes, in 2003, United signed Ronaldo and in 2004 they signed Rooney. The two forwards led the charge for a new United that saw the emergence of club legends Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Nani, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, and Edwin Van der Sar. This new generation, however, came about in an era of Arsenal’s “invincibles” and Abramovich’s Chelsea. Manchester United was no longer alone at the top of English football…

Premier League Predictions: Matchday 22

Premier League Predictions: Matchday 22

The Ole Gunnar Solskjaer regime faces its first challenge with a tricky trip to Wembley to face Tottenham.

The Red Devils will be facing a red hot Tottenham side that features Harry Kane, who has scored in each of his last 6 games in all competitions, and Son Heung-min, who has contributed to 12 goals in the premier league since the start of December.

Manchester United, however, are on quite the run of form themselves. The club has looked reinvigorated under the Norwegian, and a win against Tottenham would inflame hopes of a top-four finish. United have won 5 from 5 under caretaker manager Solskjaer, scoring 16 goals altogether. Rashford, Pogba, and Lukaku have regained peak form and are scoring as they did in previous seasons.

Zinedine Zidane’s Manchester United: A Tactical Review

Zinedine Zidane’s Manchester United: A Tactical Review

Zinedine Zidane has been heavily linked with a summer move to Manchester United to replace caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and bring back glory to the historic club. 

It comes as no surprise that his name has been mentioned so frequently in connection with the club – few managers have been as successful in such a short period of time. During his time at Real Madrid, the Frenchman averaged a trophy every 97 days. The most significant of these were his three consecutive Champions League victories. An absurdly difficult feat made even more impressive considering he won them in his first three years of top tier management. These accolades don’t even include his achievements as a player. A player who won the World Cup, the European Championship, the Champions League, and, in 1998, the Ballon d’Or.
