Manchester United are Concerned Over Scott McTominay Ankle Injury

scott-mctominay

Manchester United got their second goal, in their win over Brighton & Hove Albion yesterday, off of a free kick sent by centre midfielder Scott McTominay. The final touch came off Brighton midfielder Davy Propper, and thus it was ruled an own goal.

Later, the young Scotsman, who’s been a solid mainstay for a midfield in disarray, injured his ankle, and now there are fears he could be out of commission for awhile. According to Metro.co.uk, United fear that McTominay “could miss around four weeks of action after an initial diagnosis.”

Mohamed Salah Re-Occurring Ankle Injury Causing Concern for Liverpool

MO SALAH

As both Graeme Souness and Jose Mourinho have pointed out, there’s only one thing that can stop Liverpool from winning the Premier League title this season– a full blown injury crisis. And by that we mean, several, not just one or two, key players being out of commission for awhile due to injury.

Superstar winger Mohamed Salah has been playing through the pain of a chronic ankle problem, and it has something that Liverpool “has major concerns” about, according to an ESPN report.  After scoring Liverpool’s second goal in the blockbuster 3-1 win over Manchester City yesterday he was hit by a strong challenge from Fernandinho.

Injured Liverpool Fan Sean Cox Makes First Visit to Anfield Since Attack

Yesterday’s 3-1 win over Manchester City at home was a glorious moment for Liverpool FC and their supporters. The victory put them firmly in the driver’s seat, with both hands clasping the wheel, in the Premier League title race. For injured Liverpool supporter Sean Cox though, the day was about so much more than just football or sport.

Cox, who was brutally attacked by AS Roma ultras while in Rome for a 2018 UEFA Champions League semifinal match, was back at Anfield for the first time since the vicious assault. It took 18 months of treatment and then 12 weeks for Sean Cox to make it back to this point.

With a resounding 3-1 win at Anfield today over Manchester City, Liverpool FC are firmly in the driver’s seat of the 2019-2020 Premier League title race. The win brought them eight points clear of second place Leicester City and third place Chelsea heading into the international break.

They are an even more astounding nine points ahead of reigning back-to-back champions Manchester City. Without a doubt, it’s their title to lose now. Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that Liverpool will take the title now, barring some kind of serious injury crisis.

Man United Finally Find Front Line Consistency in James, Rashford, Martial

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer first took the wheel at Manchester United, he found that his best attacking trio consisted of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard. Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez were not a part of that first choice front line, and now both have moved on to Inter Milan.

United did not replace either of those players, who were both essentially a bust at Old Trafford. However, they did acquire winger Daniel James from Swansea City this summer, a pick-up that flew under the radar at the time. Today, in 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, we saw United play some exciting, energetic, great paced attacking football.

Manchester United News: Martial, Rashford, McTominay

Congratulations to Manchester United, who won 3-1 against Brighton & Hove Albion today, in a match that they easily should have won 5-1. Marcus Rashford scored, but he had some missed opportunities and easily should have had a brace, if not a hat trick in this one.

Rashford has brilliant potential, but he needs to work on finishing more clinically. He’s had his best when alongside Anthony Martial (two assists today), whose presence takes his game up a couple notches. This sequence here below is making the internet rounds; for obvious reasons.

Ashley Young Says Teammate Anthony Martial Deserves France Call-Up

Manchester United team captain Ashley Young will get his break started early, as he is suspended for tomorrow’s Premier League fixture at home against Brighton & Hove Albion. The match precedes the final international break of 2019, and reigning World Cup champion France will resume competition without United forward Anthony Martial as part of their roster.

Young thinks that is an absolutely wrong decision on the part of French manager Didier Deschamps, noting the fine form of the French forward and the huge difference Martial has made when he’s been in the lineup.

No One Can Afford Kylian Mbappe, Says Jurgen Klopp

kylian mbappe

So much for that Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool FC transfer narrative.

Wait, what Mbappe to Liverpool was a thing?

Apparently, yes that was a transfer rumor floating about; as ridiculous as the concept sounds. It’s a moot point anyway as Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ruled it out during his news conference ahead of the blockbuster fixture this weekend at Manchester City.

Christian Pulisic Continues Hot Streak, Proving Early Doubters Wrong

Patience is a virtue. So many were quick to write off Christian Pulisic as his start at Chelsea began nightmarishly. He just couldn’t get into the team at first, and the depth chart situation looked bleak as the Blues are/were stacked at winger. However, Pulisic produced when given the chance as he racked up the assists when called upon.

Now he’s getting the goals to go along with it. He’s absolutely on fire right now. Capt. America scored his fifth goal in three games today, converting in the 79′ of Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Ander Herrera Implies Business, Not Football Comes First at Man United

ander-herrera

For the #WoodwardOut and #GlazersOut crowd, the commentary of former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera will be music to their ears. For anyone who takes the stance that MUFC is a more or less a corporate branding/merchandising/marketing organization that also plays some football, Herrera’s comments will essentially back up your stance.

It’s kind of like a whistleblower in a way. Ander Herrera was certainly a man who played for the badge when he was at Old Trafford. No one took the Manchester derby rivalry more seriously and he won the club’s player of the year award during his stint there. Now having moved on to Paris Saint-Germain, transferring over on a free this past summer, he spoke about the differences between PSG and MUFC.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Ready for the Brandon Williams show, Manchester United supporters? The youngster has racked some nice statistics and looked impressive in the Europa League competition. The promising academy graduate should likely start on Sunday against Brighton & Hove Albion, as United look to get a Premier League win before the next international break ensues.

Williams is pressed into action as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is forced down the depth chart at left back. Depending on last minute fitness situations, he may be forced to play third choice guys in midfield and defense as well. The good news is that maybe United have found something, a formula that kind of works in their 3-0 win at Partizan Belgrade last night.
