Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera have been passed fit for the crucial trip to Manchester City on Thursday night (27 April) as Manchester United look to keep the pressure on their neighbours in the race for the top four. Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo, Juan Mata, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones will all miss the game due to different injury concerns. United currently sit in fifth, only one point behind City, after securing a 2-0 win over Burnley at the weekend thanks to goals from Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial. Valencia was rested at Turf Moor as Jose Mourinho made a number of changes in his line-up in to keep some legs fresh following Thursday's Europa League win over Anderlecht. Herrera and Pogba started in the middle of the park and both set alarms bells ringing ahead of the Manchester derby after suffering injury scares, with the France international forced off and replaced by Michael Carrick late in the game. Mourinho has delivered mixed news in the press … [Read more...] about Paul Pogba ruled out for Manchester City vs Manchester United, Antonio Valencia returns

Jose Mourinho has been handed a massive boost as Antonio Valencia is expected to return to action when Manchester United face Manchester City for the derby clash at the Etihad on 27 April. The Ecuadorian international missed the Red Devils' trip to Turf Moor as they registered a 2-0 victory over Burnley last Sunday. He also missed two league fixtures against Everton and Sunderland, with fatigue being cited as the reason. According to ESPN FC, the 31-year-old will return to action to face Pep Guardiola's side as United push for a place in the top four. He featured in his side's 2-0 victory over Chelsea, a clash that was sandwiched between the two legs of the Europa League quarter-final clash against Anderlecht. United progressed to the last four of the Europa League and Valencia played the full 120 minutes against the Belgium outfit in the second leg.

The Blues and Reds had lined up the Royal-Memorial Stadium in Austin for the milestone match, which is to take place on July 20 as part of the US leg of the International Champions Cup. But that fell through due to a scheduling clash and the venue for the friendly clash between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho is still to be announced. The 100,000-capacity stadium, which is part of the University of Texas, was pencilled in as the venue, with the game originally earmarked for July 19.

The dropped points have done nothing to dampen the rumours that Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann will join the club in the summer however. The midweek lapse did see the Reds lose more ground as they aim for a Champions League place though and that could be a deciding factor on whether Griezmann does actually make the move to North West England. Whatever happens this weekend, there is no scenario where United can break into the top four as they currently sit four points behind Manchester City in fifth place.

Louis van Gaal believes there are similarities between Jamie Vardy and Ruud van Nistelrooy - the man whose record the Leicester striker is attempting to break this weekend. Vardy will break Van Nistelrooy's 12-year Premier League record on Saturday if he scores in his 11th consecutive match when the Foxes face Manchester United. When Vardy was playing non-league football three-and-a-half years ago, few would have predicted he would have been likened to one of the greatest strikers seen on these shores in recent times. Van Nistelrooy is the 11th highest scorer in United's 137-year history, netting 150 goals in 219 matches for the club. The Dutchman won league titles in England, Spain and Holland, while Vardy's biggest achievement to date is helping Leicester get promoted to the Premier League in the summer of 2014. But there is no sense of snobbery from Van Gaal when it comes to Vardy's recent scoring run. "More or less, Van Nistelrooy is like Vardy," the United manager said. "He is … [Read more...] about Leicester City vs Manchester United: Van Gaal says ‘nasty’ Vardy is just like Ruud van Nistelrooy

Manchester United were forced to settle for a point against Leicester City on Saturday evening after Bastian Schweinsteigers header cancelled out Jamie Vardy's opener - a goal that allowed the striker to set a new Premier League record. The Leicester forward stole the limelight when he scored in the 24th minute to get his 11th goal in consecutive league games - which meant he by-passed former United star Ruud van Nistelrooy to set a new record in the English top-flight. The goal had come about following some poor defending from the visitors but, despite Leicester's hold on the game and indeed United's struggles to adapt to their new formation, Schweinsteiger headed the visitors back into the match on the stroke of half time. The German midfielder superbly outmuscled Shinji Okazaki during a corner kick to restore parity and then threatened to score the winner in the second half but saw his header saved.

After missing out on his first Manchester United goal last weekend, Bastian Schweinsteiger came up with the goods to deny Leicester City on a record-breaking night for Jamie Vardy. The England international put the Foxes ahead in the first half to score for the 11th Premier League match in a row, and with it breaking the 12-year record set by former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy. And Leicester deserved their lead. The season’s surprise act caught their visitors napping with a swift counter attack to take the lead, as Louis van Gaal’s decision to play three-at-the-back backfired in the King Power stadium. With Paddy McNair struggling for match fitness, United were left needlessly stretched by the tactical switch, and allowed Vardy and Co to exploit the abundance of space in the channels with relative ease.
