Manchester United

 By Musa Okwonga

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 'could sign Kevin Strootman from Roma in January'

Our experts weigh in on Manchester United's potential move to sign AS Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.

Manchester United could now have a strong chance of signing Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman in January due to the Serie A club's early elimination from the Champions League, Old Trafford sources have told ESPN FC.

Strootman's season only began last month following his return from a cruciate knee ligament injury sustained in March, and the Giallorossi's failure to progress from their group in Europe has led United to believe they have significant leverage to do an earlier deal for the 24-year-old.

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...

Angel Di Maria may return for United vs. Villa, Radamel Falcao could start

Our experts weigh in on Manchester United's potential move to sign AS Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.

Angel Di Maria is closing in on a return to the Manchester United team and could be on the bench for Saturday's game at Aston Villa, while Radamel Falcao could be granted his first start in more than two months.

British record signing Di Maria, 26, has missed United's last three games with the hamstring injury he sustained in the 3-0 win over Hull last month.

However, Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed that the Argentina international is back in contention as he debates whether to change...

Manchester United's Michael Carrick: I will always class myself as a midfielder

Our experts weigh in on Manchester United's potential move to sign AS Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.

Michael Carrick insists he will always regard himself as a midfielder despite his successful reinvention as a centre-back in recent games for Manchester United.

Carrick, 33, made his first appearance of the season in defence during the Manchester derby and was moved into the back three by manager Louis van Gaal during the 2-1 win at Southampton.

The England international was occasionally used in defence during injury crises by Sir Alex Ferguson, and earned praise for his composed performance as...
