Louis van Gaal, Man United must maintain momentum by beating Villa

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Shaka Hislop and Steve Nicol discuss whether or not Manchester United are Premier League title contenders after winning six consecutive league matches.

Manchester United enter the Christmas season in a position reassuringly familiar to many of their supporters. They lie third in the league, having surged there on the back of six consecutive victories. What's more, for all their woes over injuries to key defenders, they have the fourth-best defence in the league: They have conceded 17 goals, behind only Chelsea and Southampton (13) and Manchester City (14).

Given that Louis van Gaal's teams have often been accused of inattention to detail at the...

Manchester United inspired by the heroes of 1996 as title talk grows

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Shaka Hislop and Steve Nicol discuss whether or not Manchester United are Premier League title contenders after winning six consecutive league matches.

"When they sold Mark Hughes we knew something was happening," recalls Manchester United hero Gary Neville. Hughes was an icon among United supporters in the mid-'90s and enjoyed a position almost as feted as Bryan Robson in the eyes of fans. At the end of the 1994-95 season, though, Alex Ferguson (not yet a Knight of the Realm) sold him without ceremony. But he had a plan.

The departure of Hughes along with Paul Ince and Andrei Kanchelskis sent shivers down the spines of nervous fans. These three...

Manchester United's fortunes have changed since last visit to Villa Park

Louis van Gaal talks about the future of Radamel Falcao as he prepares his in-form Manchester United side for trip to Aston Villa.

In the 15th minute of Manchester United's visit to Villa Park last year, Adnan Januzaj leapt higher than anyone else in the area to meet Antonio Valencia's cross and thump a header against the post. Danny Welbeck gratefully slotted home the rebound, but nobody was in any doubt as to who deserved the credit.

A year on and Januzaj's future is looking far from certain.

Last December the cracks were beginning to show in David Moyes' reign at United. The champions had already lost to West Bromwich Albion...

For Manchester United, Villa Park has been a happy hunting ground

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Shaka Hislop and Steve Nicol discuss whether or not Manchester United are Premier League title contenders after winning six consecutive league matches.

While Manchester United will be expected to record their seventh straight win at Aston Villa on Saturday, they're unlikely to score seven as they did against the same opponents in March 1950.

Four of the goals -- including three penalties -- in a 7-0 win that day were scored by my great uncle Charlie. An ever-present for United that season, he scored a total of 16 goals from outside-left -- an astonishing return for a winger. He took particular toll on Villa, with that quartet following a double...

Radamel Falcao vows to fight for his place at Manchester United

Radamel Falcao has started just three games for Manchester United since arriving from Monaco on loan in the summer.

Some people think the festive season is about counting down December's days until Christmas morning, but we all know the real fun begins on Jan. 1 -- keep connected with all the build-up with Transfer Talk...

El Tigre wants to stay and play

I'll tell you what he wants, what he really, really wants... Radamel Falcao is desperate to stay at Manchester United despite becoming a bit-part player for Louis van Gaal, and determined to earn a starting role at Old Trafford.

The Colombian has started just...

How David De Gea has become one of the Premier League's best goalkeepers

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal refused to discuss the future of David de Gea, after the Spanish goalkeeper starred in the team's 3-0 win over Liverpool in the Premier League.

Hopefully, David De Gea's right leg will still be slightly sore following the save he made from Mario Balotelli towards the end of Manchester United's 3-0 victory over Liverpool on Sunday. For one of De Gea's predecessors in the Manchester United goal, that pain represented one of the best feelings as a goalkeeper.

Peter Schmeichel remains the man every Manchester United goalkeeper is compared to, and he was famed for spreading his body, using every part of his anatomy to deny opposition strikers...
