download (1)As William Shakespeare brilliantly put it, all’s well that ends well.

That was very much the case on Saturday night, as United clinched their first away win of the season and their first against a top four side – admittedly on tradition, rather than current form – since they beat the very same opponent a little over than a year ago.

PAY-Arsenal-v-Manchester-UnitedChris Smalling has conceded that Manchester United should be higher on the table but insisted that, after clinching their first away win of the season, things were looking up for Louis Van Gaal’s side.

Time for United to shed the inferiority complex

Tag: Match Preview @ 10:46 am

Man-Utd-v-EvertonWhile we wait to find out whether Daley Blind’s knee injury will keep him out for six days, six weeks, six months or six years, proper football makes a welcome return as the third international break in as many months is finally behind us.

As it’s becoming the norm this season, United are decimated by injuries and confidence isn’t exactly sky-high ahead of a testing trip to the Emirates. A last minute draw against Chelsea was followed by a somewhat unfortunate defeat against City and an unconvincing win against Crystal Palace, which has left United a point behind Saturday’s opponents and just two adrift of fourth place.
