Man United 2-1 Swansea City | Match report

Man United secure their first win in seven Premier League games as they see off Swansea 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney earned the red devils the three points, easing pressure on boss, Louis van Gaal.

The first half ended 0-0 with Man United failing to play in the same manner they did against Chelsea. Jeers and groans were heard around the stadium as fans became disgruntled.

However, Man United came out in the second half showing much more intent and Anthony Martial opened the scoring in the 47th minute. Ashley Young whipped in a cross from the right, Wayne Rooney attempted and failed to head the ball but Martial was behind him to head the ball down and past Fabianski.

United gave a much improved performance in the second half but were unable to extend their lead. Instead Swansea managed to pull level thanks to a goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson in the 71st minute. Swansea sub, Barrow, made easy work of beating Matteo Darmian down the right and hit a cross into the box. The cross found Sigurdsson who looped a header over David de Gea and into the United goal.

It didn’t take long for Man United to take the lead again. This time Rooney providing the goal. The play started with Anthony Martial who ran at the defenders, taking the ball to the byline. Beating the defenders he pulled the ball back across the goal finding Rooney who scored with a clever back-heel flick completely fooling Fabianski.

Swansea reacted to going a goal down with the introduction of Jefferson Montero and Bafetimbi Gomis. Both players added strength and pace to the Swansea attack.

The Swans almost equalised twice in injury time. In the 92nd minute, Paddy McNair failed to deal with a cross and the ball fell to Ashley Williams who turned the United defender and hit a shot at goal but David de Gea was able to save at full stretch.

In the 95th minute, Swansea were awarded a corner and Fabianski joned the attack. The ball was delivered and it was the Swansea keeper who got his head on it but he couldn’t get it on target much to the relief of the United goal keeper as he could only stand and watch the ball narrowly miss the post.

The win lifts Man United up to 5th in the table, two points behind Spurs who play their game-in-hand tomorrow, away at Everton.

Man United 0-0 Chelsea | Match report

Man United’s winless streak continues after a goalless draw at Old Trafford with current Premier League champions, Chelsea.

The match started brightly with both teams getting forward and creating goal scoring opportunities, but it was Man United who went on to dominate in the first half putting pressure on the visitors.

It was Man United who had the first chance to take the lead in only the 3rd minute when Juan Mata got on the end of a Wayne Rooney pass, but the Spaniard could only rattle the bar with his left footed shot.

Two minutes later, former England captain John Terry almost put the visitors ahead with a powerful header, but David de Gea reacted quickly to save.

In the 16th minute, Man United had another chance to go ahead, but the woodwork came to Chelsea’s rescue again preventing Anthony Martial’s shot after he cut in past Ivanovic.

Another chance came for the reds in the 29th minute when Wayne Rooney unleashed a venomous shot at Chelsea’s goal from long range, but Courtois got across and palmed it to safety.

The second half, although not as entertaining as the first, did provide some goal scoring chances.

Chelsea attacked first in the 48th minute with two chances falling to Pedro and Azpilicueta respectively, but both were denied by a double save from Man United keeper David de Gea. Pedro made easy work of weaving past the United defence giving himself room to shoot only for de Gea to save. The loose ball fell to Azpilicueta who shot first time, but the United keeper was alert to the situation and saved again.

In the 56th minute Man United had a chance to take the lead through Ander Herrera. Anthony Martial crossed the ball across the six yard box but Herrera’s shot was blocked by Courtois and the ball span just wide of the post.

Then it was Chelsea’s turn again. Six minutes after Herrera’s near miss, the visitors looked like they were going to take the lead when on a counter attack Nemanja Matic found himself one-on-one with David de Gea but he took his shot too early sending the ball into the stands.

The game progressed into the latter stages with Man United searching for a winner and Chelsea seeming to be settling for a draw and in the 86th minute United were presented with a great chance to steal a possible winner. The chance fell to Wayne Rooney. The ball was played across the face of goal to the far post where Rooney was positioned, but the Man United and England captain volleyed over from close range.

The draw means Man United remain 6th in the Premier League; 5 points behind 4th placed Man city, who have a game in hand. More worryingly, United are only 3 points clear of old rivals Liverpool, who currently occupy 10th place.

Stoke City 2-0 Man United | Match report

Man United suffer their fourth consecutive defeat as they slump to a 2-0 loss away at Stoke City.

It was all Stoke in the first half as they dominated possession and played with intent, continuously playing the ball into the forwards and putting Man United on the back foot.

Stoke’s Bojan opened the scoring in the 19th minute after a poor back pass from Memphis fell to Glen Johnson. The former Liverpool right back pulled a cross back to Bojan near the penalty spot who slotted the ball past David de Gea.

The Potters doubled their lead just 7 minutes later. A Bojan free kick was deflected by the Man United wall and the loose ball fell to Arnautovic who drilled the ball into the United goal from outside the box.

In the 36th minute, Arnautovic had a golden chance to put Stoke 3-0 up when he found himself one-on-one with David de Gea but he dragged his shot just wide of the post.

The half time break saw the introduction of Man United’s Wayne Rooney. The substitution seemed to lift United and give them a little more bite but they could only manage one real goal scoring opportunity.

In the 64th minute, Fellaini had a chance to pull a goal back for the visitors. From the right hand side of the Stoke box, Wayne Rooney hit a ball across the 6 yard box which fell to the Belgian’s feet. With only the keeper to beat, his first time shot was too weak and Jack Butland was able to get down and gather the ball easily.

Man United are now without a win in 5 Premier League games and the loss against Stoke means that the red devils slip down to 6th in the league. They could end the day in 7th if Watford win away at Chelsea this afternoon.

Man United 1-2 Norwich | Match report

Man United slip out of top four after suffering second consecutive league defeat at the hands of Norwich City.

Despite a positive start from Man United, controlling the game, attacking; they were once again unable to come away with three points thanks to goals from Norwich’s Cameron Jerome and Alex Tettey, either side of the break.

The first goal came in the 37th minute following a Norwich counter attack. Jerome shook off advances from Michael Carrick in the United box and fired home past David de Gea to put the Canaries 1-0 up.

Shortly after the break, following a mix-up in the United midfield, Tettey doubled the visitor’s lead after driving the ball into the bottom left corner leaving David de Gea stood rooted to the ground.

Man United fought back and found their way back into the game on the 65th minute when an Ashley Young cross fell to Anthony Martial in the box. The French international battled past two Norwich defenders to power the ball into the roof of the net. But the goal wasn’t enough to inspire Man United to stage a fantastic come back.

During the first half, United had several attempts at taking the lead. However, none of them really caused Norwich any problems.

Captain Wayne Rooney did, however, have a goal disallowed in the 9th minute due to the flag being raised signalling that Fellaini, who played the ball to Rooney, was offside.

In the 23rd minute, Rooney played a one-two with Juan Mata and on the return pass the Man United veteran fired a shot at the Norwich goal but it was deflected out for a corner.

Late on in the second half both teams had chances to score. Man United could have equalised in the 78th minute if not for a Mata free kick being saved by Rudd and in the 83rd minute Norwich had a shot at goal bringing a save out of de Gea who was at full stretch.

Man United have now only won two out of their last eight league games allowing the teams above them to pull away and teams below to catch up.

These are worrying times not just for the fans but also for the club. If thing’s don’t improve, Man United may not only miss out on a title challenge, but also on a top four Champions League spot.

The loss means that Man United slip down to fifth with Tottenham Hotspur moving up into fourth.

Bournemouth 2-1 Man United | Full match report

Man United suffer their second defeat in a week after losing away at lowly Bournemouth.

After their victory against Chelsea last week, Bournemouth were bullish about their chances against a misfiring Man United.

Their confidence showed as they came at United and took the lead in the 2nd minute after a Stanislav corner caught the wind and ended up dropping into top corner at the back post.

Man United reacted positively by playing plenty of forward passes and creating chances. In the 24th minute they were rewarded for their efforts when Fellaini brought the scores level. Michael Carrick played a long ball over the top after spotting Memphis making a run behind the Bournemouth defence. The United number 7 chested the ball down but couldn’t get much power in his shot. The shot was saved by Boruc and Fellaini reacted quickest to score from the rebound.

Bournemouth came out in the second half full of energy and fight and in the 54th minute took the lead again from another corner. This time it was a set piece straight off the training ground. The corner was hit hard across the ground toward the penalty spot and King ran out from the back post to hit the loose ball straight down the middle of the Man United goal, leaving David de Gea rooted to the ground.

The game was played at a high tempo throughout and both teams had great chances to score more goals.

Fellaini could have equalised for Man United in the 4th minute when he struck a volley in the box but it was straight at Boruc.

And Bournemouth could have went 2-0 up just before Man United equalised when Stanislas found himself one on one with de Gea, but the Bournemouth player couldn’t get his shot off before the United keeper came out and snatched the ball from Stanislas’ feet.

At 2-1 down, Man United had several more attempts on goal but, it was Bournemouth who had the better chances which fell to Murray. He had two shots in as many minutes from just six yards out with a gaping goal in front of him but he hit them both over the bar.

The game ended with a roar from the home fans as they celebrated beating Britain’s most successful football team a week after a victory against the current Premier League champions.

Man United on the other hand have now won only 2 of their last 7 Premier League games and appear to be heading down a slippery slope.

The loss means they remain fourth in the table with Arsenal and Leicester still to play with a chance to pull away.
