Gerard Pique to make Man United return, Mou says no to January needs

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that he has cooled his interest in signing free agent goalkeeper Victor Valdes.
Gerard Pique once called Old Trafford home. If the latest rumours about the Barcelona defender are true, he may be making a Manchester United homecoming very soon.

January will be here before you know it! To tide us over until then, here's today's batch of rumours and gossip.

Pique making United return?

He only played 12 league games for Sir Alex Ferguson during his four seasons with Manchester United, but if the latest from The Daily Star is true, Gerard Pique could pad those stats very soon.

Louis van Gaal and Manchester United are still looking for help on defence (they could have used it on Monday vs. West Brom). Now the 27-year-old Pique is tops on...

Average Manchester United saved by Marouane Fellaini

The ESPN FC team analyse Manchester United's disappointing performance against West Bromwich Albion.

Louis van Gaal's team have yet to win away in the league, a record that at least the beleaguered David Moyes could point to with some pride last season. Here, though they scored two very fine goals, they were undone with disconcerting ease on the break and struggled for fluency throughout. A point at the Hawthorns, on balance, is not a poor result, but it is not the stuff of which pushes for UEFA Champions League places are made -- particularly with such stern challenges immediately ahead.

Three Points: West Brom vs. Manchester United

Manchester United fell behind twice but fought back to earn a 2-2 draw on the road at The Hawthorns.

WEST BROMWICH, England -- A trio of observations on West Brom and Manchester United's 2-2 draw in the Premier League.

1. Blind saves blushes

Louis van Gaal's Manchester United were yet to score beyond the 63rd minute of any Premier League game. Lead by then and you had the formula for success against the misfiring millionaires.

This time, though, Daley Blind bucked the stats. With a calm swipe of his left foot in the 87th minute, he prevented another away-day disaster. West Brom fans dreamed...

West Brom tempt Twitter fate with Marouane Fellaini tweet

I'll show you, social media critics!

Oh, person in charge of West Brom's twitter feed, what were you thinking when you posted this about Manchester United substitute Marouane Fellaini?

Two minutes after half-time, of course, the Belgian scored.

Clayton, Edwards and Man United's historical English Midlands links

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal talks about his first three months in charge and the ESPN FC crew discusses the upcoming game between West Brom and Manchester United.

Manchester United play in West Bromwich on Monday, the town which is part of an area of the English Midlands known as the "Black Country," which produced Duncan Edwards, one of the club's greatest ever players.

Had the game not been on a weekday evening when motorway traffic will be heavy, more United fans would stop off in nearby Dudley, to pay their respects at his statue in the town centre, his grave in the cemetery or the two stained-glass windows commemorating Edwards in St. Francis' Church.

Post-break fixture the perfect time to give Januzaj a shot

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says his side are not "in balance" ahead of their Premier League trip to West Bromwich Albion.

When David Moyes gave Adnan Januzaj his debut 12 months ago he was repaid with two goals and one of the brightest starts a United player has had in years. "In all my time he is one of the best young players I have worked with," Moyes said recently. But has Januzaj been marginalised by United's summer spending spree?

In recent weeks, Januzaj has had to content himself with life in the under-21s, for whom he scored a hat trick before the international break, and life on the bench at Old Trafford....
