Arsenal seek to reverse United trend

50-50 Challenge

Victor Valdes living in sad exile at Manchester United

The ESPN FC crew look at Victor Valdes' difficult situation at Manchester United.

Victor Valdes says that goalkeepers are always alone, emotionally and physically distanced from their teammates.

He admits he's shy, an introvert who likes solitude, and that one of the reasons he loves windsurfing is the feeling of being out there on the sea a long way from land where no-one can bother him except the occasional fish swimming past.

Yet the scene was still a sad, lonely one -- even for him -- and the message felt a little like a cry for help. Or for comprehension at least.

David Beckham's Manchester United career should have ended differently

Alex Ferguson and David Beckham will return to Old Trafford together for the first time in over a decade.

To this day, former Real Madrid coach Carlos Queiroz has been unable to figure out why David Beckham and Roberto Carlos became such good friends while at the Bernabeu.

"David doesn't speak Spanish and Roberto doesn't speak English," recalled current Iran manager Queiroz. "Yet they'd speak for one hour a day, they'd spend a lot of time together. I still can't work out what they were saying."

"They were probably talking about girls," laughed a former teammate when he heard that one.

Beckham surprised...

Man United's Morgan Schneiderlin should be a key player in starting XI

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says an average Manchester United side just couldn't keep up with a reformed Arsenal squad in this week's Premier League action.

It might be a coincidence that Morgan Schneiderlin didn't feature in either of Manchester United's recent defeats against PSV Eindhoven and Arsenal, or it could prove what his value is to the side.

Either way, it is clear that manager Louis van Gaal didn't believe it was a good idea to start the 25-year-old in the shocking 3-0 rout at the hands of the Gunners last weekend. Instead, he went for Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger, who have a combined age of 65, to try to press high and interrupt...

Man United must move past Arsenal defeat and address defensive concerns

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti praises Arsenal's performance against Manchester United and believes Louis van Gaal made a few tactical errors.
The ESPN FC panel discuss Manchester United's Premier League chances and whether or not they have the right squad to be title contenders.

Matteo Darmian could have been forgiven for thinking, "Oh, not again" as Manchester United were torn apart in the first 20 minutes by Arsenal, who eventually won 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium. It had been a while, but the full-back won't have forgotten the last time he came face-to-face with Alexis Sanchez.

Back in February 2011, Sanchez was the Udinese star coveted by every major club in Europe, including both Manchester teams. Darmian was a 21-year-old right-back on loan at Palermo from AC Milan.


Schweinsteiger highlights Manchester United's woes as Arsenal run riot

Three early goals saw Arsenal past Manchester United, with Alexis Sanchez producing two pieces of magic to stun United.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley discusses Arsenal's 3-0 win over Manchester United, with under-pressure Arsene Wenger's men putting in a convincing performance.

A thrilling 20-minute opening propelled Arsenal to a 3-0 win at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday to seal only their second victory in their last 14 league fixtures against Manchester United.

The Gunners cut through the visitors with the kind of sharp and intricate passing that so pleases Arsene Wenger. The elusive Mesut Ozil created the opener and converted the second, while Alexis Sanchez struck twice in a first-half display that is likely to have left defender Matteo Darmian sleepless.

Bastian Schweinsteiger...

Rodgers' sacking and Arsenal's Man United rout highlight Prem weekend

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reacts to Brendan Rodgers' sacking as Liverpool manager following a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby against Everton.

The weekend's Premier League action was packed with plenty of drama and Iain Macintosh reviews the best and worst of week eight.


It's over, but by thunder, it was one hell of a ride. Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked by Liverpool on Sunday, had his faults and they will be well documented elsewhere in the next 24 hours, but he was rarely dull.

He nearly won the title with a team that shipped 50 goals, he was open and engaging, he sought to play stylish football and he was passionate about...
