5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 2-0 Swansea City

By Matthew Jones 1. The next big thing Adnan Januzaj is a star in the making. Manchester United fans have probably been excited about him since the start of the season.

5 Things We Learned: Aston Villa 0-3 Manchester United

By Piers Barber 1.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City

By Chris Mortlock 1. Phil Jones: The only positive If there’s something we’ve learned about Phil Jones since he arrived from Blackburn in 2011, it’s how versatile he is. Whatever position he’s asked to play, he nearly always excels; whether that’s at right full-back, centre-half, or putting out fires in central midfield. Still just 20, [...]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 1-0 Reading

By Chris Mortlock 1. An all important three points, but maybe one to forget Should we do the inevitable and go on to lift our 20th title, few will remember Saturday’s game against Reading. The reverse fixture in December was one of the most entertaining games of the season; Saturday’s was anything but. City’s pathetic [...]
