A Manchester City fan who lost a Manchester derby bet was forced to sing 'Glory, Glory, Man United' after watching his team lose. The Norwegian City fan agreed a bet with his lecturer two days before the derby in that should City win his lecturer would have to teach in a full City kit and if United won the student would have to sing a rendition of Glory, Glory, Man United. The pride stakes were set high and with City 2-0 up at half-time thanks to goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan the City fan was feeling confident that not only would his team be crowned champions but he had won the bet. That was until goals from Paul Pogba and Chris Smalling gave United a dramatic victory and the City fan was forced to perform the United chant in front of 250 students. And to add insult to injury he did it on his 25th birthday. Speaking to MEN Sport, he said: "At half-time I was even more convinced of victory but then when Smalling scored the winner I couldn't believe it. "After the … [Read more...] about Man City fan suffered ultimate embarrassment after losing Manchester United bet

A fortnight after booking their place in the FA Cup semi-finals, Manchester United return to action looking to extend their Premier League winning run to four games when they host Swansea City on Saturday. Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic sealed safe passage to Wembley when United saw off Brighton 2-0 last time out, while Swansea visit Old Trafford coming off the back of an FA Cup quarter-final of their own – losing 3-0 to Tottenham, who United face in the semis. The sides last met on their second Premier League outings of the season, as three goals in four second-half minutes saw Jose Mourinho’s men secure a second successive 4-0 win to open the campaign. While Swansea need points to continue their push for Premier League survival, United will be determined to keep confidence high prior to the Manchester derby next weekend – when they will look to stop rivals City being crowned as champions right in front of their eyes.

Manchester United will return from the international break looking to consolidate second place in the Premier League table. The Red Devils have won seven out of their last nine games but face the prospect of arch rivals Manchester City winning the title in the derby next week, no matter what the result at Old Trafford tomorrow. Even with a game in hand the club are just two points ahead of Liverpool, and with Chelsea facing Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge, will no doubt understand the significance of the game. Swansea City meanwhile sit 14th, just three points outside the relegation zone in what is becoming one of the tightest races to stay up in years. Yet under Carlos Carvalhal the Swans have lost just twice, while big wins over Liverpool and Arsenal will bring hope to fans come the final few months of the season. Where and when is the game? The game is on Saturday, March 31 at Old Trafford- kick off is at 3:00pm. What channel is the game on? The match isn’t live on TV … [Read more...] about What time is Manchester United vs Swansea?

Phil Jones is being tipped to become the latest player to be launched in the seemingly never-ending rally of ‘transfer tennis’ between Everton and Manchester United. The defender is being backed for a summer move to the Blues on what is the Premier League’s most-trodden transfer paths – the two-way street that exists from Goodison Park to Old Trafford. While Liverpool haven’t done any direct business with the Red Devils for over half a century, Everton have no such qualms and a string of stars have turned out for both in the Premier League era alone. Wayne Rooney of course moved twice between the clubs – directly both ways – while Morgan Schneiderlin, Tom Cleverley, Darron Gibson, Louis Saha, Tim Howard, Phil Neville, Jesper Blomqvist, John O’Kane and Andrei Kanchelskis all moved directly from United to the Blues in the Premier League era. Going the other way were Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini while ex-Old Trafford favourite Mark … [Read more...] about Phil Jones backed to make transfer to Everton from Manchester United
"I trust in you." These were the four simple words Didier Deschamps uttered to Paul Pogba as the buzzer went in the away dressing room in the bowels of the Amsterdam Arena back in October, 2016. Despite being three-and-a-half years into his senior international career, the United midfielder was still searching for a statement performance for Les Bleus and his own manager had not held back after yet another patchy display just three days previously. "(Pogba) alternated between good things and less good things. Paul can and must do better. He knows that," he told reporters after France's 4-1 win against Bulgaria. Like most managers, Deschamps tends to only speak to the media when he has to, at press conferences during international breaks, so his words carry extra credence - particularly when Jose Mourinho refused to criticise his record signing at the time. Tired of questions about Pogba's role, best position and whether he could do more to get more out of him, the France boss vowed … [Read more...] about Manchester United shown how to get the best out of Paul Pogba
