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...

Fan favourite Juan Mata aiming to prove his worth at Man United

Despite Liverpool having the majority of the chances against Manchester United, Louis van Gaal's side propelled themselves to their sixth consecutive league win, led by David de Gea's stunning display in goal.

This time last year Manchester United were being linked to signing Juan Mata from Chelsea. As much as supporters wanted to believe it was true, even the most optimistic among them struggled to view it as a credible rumour.

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...

Ander Herrera: My conscience is totally clear over Liga match-fixing probe

ESPN FC's Spain correspondent Sid Lowe explains the match-fixing probe ongoing in Spain.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera says his "conscience is totally clear" after being named in an alleged case of match-fixing in Spain.

Herrera, Atletico Madrid captain Gabi and Japan coach Javier Aguirre are reportedly among the 41 defendants named by Spanish prosecutors investigating a La Liga game between Levante and Real Zaragoza on the final day of the 2010-11 season.

Herrera, 25, posted a message on his Facebook account on Tuesday saying: "In an on-going legal process involving Real...

Can Manchester United win the Premier League this season?

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.

After six consecutive wins, Manchester United are third in the Premier League and trail leaders Chelsea by just eight points. It's prompted some to wonder what Louis van Gaal's side is capable of this season. We asked bloggers Scott Patterson and Mark Payne for their view on what might be possible.

Can Manchester United win the Premier League title this season?

Scott Patterson: It's a possibility but not very likely. Come the end of the season, maybe it will be a close-run thing and United will be...
