Angel Di Maria holds the key to defeating Chelsea's midfield

Huge game this weekend in the Barclays Premier League, as the past greats of English football, Manchester United, take on the champions-elect, Chelsea. Ian Fiveankles explains EXACTLY what happens in this match, so you don't even have to watch it.

Well, here it is: the first formidable test of Manchester United's season, and one that finds them in uncertain health. Chelsea, their visitors, arrive in a mercifully weakened state, with both of their best forwards -- Diego Costa and Loic Remy -- diminished by injury.

While Remy looks likely to miss out on Sunday's game at Old Trafford, the state of Costa's fitness remains unclear. The Spain international, who has nine league goals already this season, was rested for his team's 6-0 victory over...

Manchester United-Chelsea reunites Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

When Britain's football writers held a gala dinner in honour of Jose Mourinho this year , Louis van Gaal stood up to pay a handsome tribute to the talent and loyalty of his old Barcelona sidekick.

At that stylish evening in a swanky London hotel, Van Gaal had only the Netherlands and the World Cup on his mind. Little did we know then that the two friends would soon be locking horns in an Old Trafford confrontation between Manchester United and Chelsea.

The only safe bet is that they will share a...

Real Madrid prepare to sign Javier Hernandez to permanent deal

With three goals in just four league outings, Chicharito has convinced Real Madrid to loosen the purse strings...

Wait, the transfer window is closed? That's news to the Transfer Talk crew. There are still plenty of transfer-related rumours around the world!

Carlo signs off on Chicharito

After just four appearances in their famous white kit, Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid have been sufficiently impressed with Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez to want to tie him down to a permanent deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Daily Express says that there is an option-to-buy clause in the Manchester United man's loan deal...

Angel Di Maria and Juan Mata set for reunion with Mourinho

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

Manchester United have broken their record transfer fee twice in 2014, with vastly different levels of success. Juan Mata has rarely sparkled since his 37.1 million-pound move from Chelsea in January, but Angel Di Maria has been in impressive form, having been signed for 59.7 million pounds in the summer. Jose Mourinho, who visits Old Trafford with Chelsea this weekend, might have predicted how things would go.

Mourinho, of course, has coached both, and his perception of the duo tallies closely...

Manchester United can beat Chelsea if Van Gaal makes tough call

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea are off to their best start to the season since, well, Jose Mourinho's Chelsea in 2005. Manchester United, on the other hand, have made their slowest start since Russell Beardsmore roamed the right flank of Old Trafford and Mal Donaghy was the great hope from the summer transfers.

Chelsea are heavily favoured to win in Manchester on Sunday, but there is precedent for United beating the odds.

The situation was not dissimilar the day after Guy Fawkes Night in 2005. Mourinho's...

Man Utd's failure to land Fabregas signals shift in balance of power

Cesc Fabregas could have had a similar impact at Old Trafford, had he joined.

It was in the middle of July in 2013 and a flight was suddenly required to transport Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward back from Australia to England. "Urgent transfer business" was the designated reason and, a few days later, it became clear why, as Cesc Fabregas was duly announced as United's record signing.

Woodward and David Moyes had demonstrated that the club's pulling power remained intact despite the departures of David Gill and Sir Alex Ferguson. The new manager looked...
