Well-respected Phelan plots an unlikely win for Hull vs. old club Man United

Mike Phelan says Paul Pogba must rise to the occasion at Man United with his expensive price tag.
Anthony Richardson recaps an epic weekend in the Premier League, where Hull City and Mike Phelan are in the spotlight.
Jose Mourinho insists there will be no more arrivals at Manchester United this transfer window.

Hull City's caretaker manager Mike Phelan spent 19 years at Manchester United, the team he'll face on Saturday. Both sides have won their two Premier League matches so far, with those of Hull far more surprising than United's victories.

Phelan, 53, was a United first-team player between 1989-94 and, having returned after a five-year absence, a coach for 14 years until 2013; when Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down, his successor David Moyes decided against retaining Phelan.

Klopp's Tottenham test, Tigers for Mourinho as Wenger battles Hornets

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol has his say on Daniel Sturridge's position problems at Liverpool.

Liverpool's trip to Tottenham is the headline match from the final round of Premier League fixtures before the international break. Jurgen Klopp's men will be looking to bounce back following their shock 2-0 defeat at Burnley last time out.

Elsewhere, Manchester United travel to Hull City, who are surprisingly defending a 100 percent record in the Premier League so far. That's not the case for Leicester, though, with the defending champions hosting Swansea still searching for their first win of...

Mike Phelan could scoop Hull City job with win over Manchester United

Anthony Richardson looks at Hull City's surprise start in the Premier League.

When Mike Phelan was given the chance to lead Hull City back into the Premier League, he will have hoped a caretaker reign would extend to two attractive fixtures at the front end of his diary.

After the looming international break there is a trip to Phelan's boyhood team Burnley, where he spent his formative years as a professional footballer, but first, on Saturday evening, comes a date with the club that went on to define him.

Manchester United was where Phelan spent 19 years as a player and...

Raheem Sterling, Zlatan Ibrahimovic impress in Manchester; Liverpool poor

The FC panels discuss Zlatan Ibrahimovic's impact on Man United thus far, and if he's already meeting expectations or not.

Iain Macintosh casts his eye over the best and worst of the action from the Premier League this weekend.


Behold the 100 percent club. The greatest managers in Europe, perched at the top of the Premier League, bound together by their own perfection. Their names will echo throughout history. Pep Guardiola. Jose Mourinho. Antonio Conte and ... Mike Phelan. The Hull City caretaker manager -- and surely he'll be given the job for real soon -- has won more games in the first seven days of the season...

Hull City defy expectations as Maloney and Hernandez strike at Swansea

Caretaker boss Mike Phelan gave his verdict following Hull City's 2-0 win at Swansea.

Hull City continue to defy expectations after making it six points from six in a hugely encouraging return to the Premier League. Despite again having just 13 senior professionals available, they again found the resolve and defensive strength to grind out a 2-0 victory at Swansea on Saturday.

The hosts saw more of the ball and camped in their visitors' half for long periods but the Tigers always looked a threat on the counter. The late goals from Shaun Maloney and Abel Hernandez were the icing on...

Hull City still in crisis mode despite win over champions Leicester

Mike Phelan praises Hull City for their performance despite their limited first team squad members.

Hull City opened the Premier League season by beating champions Leicester City 2-1 at the KCOM Stadium last weekend but, in truth, the club is in near-suspended animation.

Two of the 13 senior players currently available to caretaker manager Mike Phelan, filling in after manager Steve Bruce resigned on July 22, are goalkeepers. Until current owners the Allam family are able to sell the club, with a Chinese consortium reported to be close to making an offer, then no incoming transfers are expected,...
