Manchester United are once again back in crisis mode after the loss against Watford. The result has left the Red Devils with a huge fight to even think about Champions League qualification. Chelsea have been able to open up a seven-point advantage of the weekend’s results. More worryingly, the likes of Sheffield United and Wolves have been doing really well. The defeat against the league’s bottom team raises questions about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ability to lead the club into the future. A lot of questions will be answered when his team take on Newcastle on Boxing Day.
This is the late kick-off on Boxing Day with Newcastle coming into the game after a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace. Hugo Almiron came up with a late winner in the game to give Newcastle some much needed three points. The result helped the Magpies to move into the top half of the table. The team has now registered three wins in the last four matches. The away defeat against Burnley is the only exception in this exceptional run, which also involves a win over fifth-placed Sheffield United. Newcastle do not perform well on the road and they have lost six in the last nine away trips. A visit to the former stomping ground will be a motivation for Steve Bruce. A problem for Newcastle is the absence of Allan Saint-Maximin.
Manchester United on loan signing has been tipped to be a formidable addition to the club by former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov. He stated his experience will be a huge asset for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Nigerian international joined from Chinese super league side, Shanghai Shenhua till the end of the season. He was handed his debut against Chelsea in Monday’s night Premier league match at Stamford bridge, a match the Red Devils won, 2-0 thanks to goals from Martial and Captain, Harry Maguire.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is slowly and steadily working on his rebuild. After clearing out some players last term and deciding those that should remain, the coach is marching on with the rebuild.
David de Gea’s future is finally sorted with the new deal that ties him to the club. The Spaniard gets a massive deal and has his near future sorted out. Aside De Gea, OGS extended Victor Lindelof’s deal by five years. The Swede promised to help the club achieve greater heights,and win titles.
The bond in camp is believed to be very close as a youthful, talented team bond. The rebuild is steady and even more young players are set to join. United could add James Maddison as early as January when the window opens to strengthen the midfield options.
The transfer window is up and running with a number of teams making big moves so far. One of such teams is Manchester United as the Red Devils have been busy with the signings of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Welsh winger Daniel James.
However, the Old Trafford outfit are reportedly set to make a signing that could be the talk of the transfer window. Arsenal forward Pierre-EmerickAubameyang has been rumoured to be a target for Manchester United according to reports from England.
Manchester United face Barcelona on the 10th of March in what promises to be a classic quarter-final champions league tie. The clash is one of the keenly talked about clash as it features two of the biggest and successful teams in Europe.
Barcelona are the undisputed favourite for the clash as they boast the mercurial forward Lionel Messi in their ranks and have the best team on paper. However, as United showed in the round of 16 clash against PSG count them out at your own peril.
Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has spoken of his dream of taking over the reins at Manchester United one day after being inspired by current interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The narrow 2-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion last time out handed the Red Devils their seventh win on the trot in all competitions since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the managerial berth from Jose Mourinho.
Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Dimitar Berbatov believes that the London team will have to invest in new players if they want to challenge for the title. He said that he has watched the game against Arsenal and believes that Spurs was second best throughout the game. The former Manchester United player said that they even scored against the run of play and they do not deserve to win anything from this game.
He said that Tottenham Hotspur will need to strengthen if they want to win trophies or they risk to fall further behind their rivals. He believes that the club is being hindered by the construction of their new stadium and this is why they have not been able to invest money in new players. He said that it is appearing as if the club does not have the squad to cater for both the Champions League as well as the Premier League and this is why they are struggling at the moment.

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has responded harshly to claims by David James through an Instagram post. The player posted a picture of himself on a plane heading back to his home country following the end of the Indian Super League season.
Berbatov stars for Kerala Blasters in the league with former Liverpool and Aston Villa goalkeeper James as the coach. The former England international finished his career in India and returned to lead the side from mid-season following the club’s contract termination of Rene Meulensteen.
The Blasters lost due to stoppage time goals by Bengaluru FC after 90 minutes of intense back and forth. At the post match conference, James said it was just that football is cruel for his side to not have gone through. He praised the defence of the opposition as a major factor in the game. The managers believes the strong defence and team spirit of Bengaluru FC can help them break the jinx of league stage winners not going on to be eventual champions of the ISL.
Former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurstriker DimitarBerbatov has snubbed a possible return to the Premier League to feature for Watford, according to reports.
The 36-year old is already thinking of his post retirement plans as he ignored a move to Watford for Kerala Blasters.
The Premier League legend would be heading to India later in the year to join former United coach Rene Meulensteen. The seven-time Bulgarian Player of the Year award winner is set to become the third highest earning player in the history of the ISL when he resumes with Kerala.
Watford wanted him in a player-coach capacity but Berbatov ignored them, preferring a new experience in India. He would work with Meulensteen in coaching capacity, as a mentor to the Indian players and as one of the biggest players in the 2017/18 ISL.
Berbatov would link up with two former Manchester United players in Wes Brown and Paul Rachubka.
They would help the club in their title chase this term. Seven out of eight foreigners have joined but they should be enough as the two-time ISL runners-up seek to land their first title.
Berbatov is known for his exceptional ball control and goalscoring ability. He agreed to a one year deal with the Blasters but he is expected to stay longer in coaching and mentoring capacity, alongside Meulensteen. Before the Watford link, there were reports he would join Sunderland. However, the move never materialized.
