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.

Louis van Gaal will not make a call on Radamel Falcao's future until the striker has an extended run in the Manchester United first team.

Despite a difficult, injury-hit start to life at Old Trafford, Falcao this week spelled out his desire to stay at the club beyond the end of the season.

The Colombian, who is on a season-long loan from Monaco, says he is settled in Manchester and happy at the club despite scoring just once in eight appearances.

Van Gaal will not be rushed into making a decision on...
