Premier League 2016/17

Old Trafford, Manchester
Manchester United Team News & Preview
Manchester United will look to get their Premier League campaign back on the right track after two successive draws. The Red Devils are progressing well in the domestic cups as a Wembley final for the EFL Cup awaits.
This will be United’s third game against Hull City in January, having already faced the Tigers in the EFL Cup’s two-legged semi-finals. United won the home leg 2-0 before suffering an inconsequential 2-1 defeat at the KCOM Stadium. The top four all failed to collect three points last night, hence this game is an opportunity for the Red Devils to close in on the teams above them.
In football, like in many other areas, you need to invest if you want to be successful. The more you are willing to invest, the more likely it is to succeed. José Mourinho knows that full well. Despite the fact that the club’s transfer policy has been criticised, we hope that spending all that money will take the club where it belongs – at the very top of English and European football.
Manchester United have confirmed that Louis van Gaal has been sacked as manager of the Old Trafford club after two years in charge.
The experienced Dutchman arrived in England as the Red Devils were undergoing major changes following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson and a disastrous period under David Moyes.

Wayne Rooney has been left out of the Manchester United squad for Thursday’s Europa League last 32 first leg against Danish champions FC Midtjylland, with the striker out with a knee injury that, some media outlets are claiming, could see him miss two months of football.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Louis van Gaal revealed that the United captain was indeed injured, as it had been reported, but did not comment on how long he would be sidelined for:
“You can never say [how long he could be out for]. He has a knee problem so we have to wait and see. “He scores a lot of goals so he is very important for us. We know that but we have to cope with that.”

Sunday afternoon sees the first instalment of the Manchester derby this season, as United host City at Old Trafford knowing a win would take them top of the table.
Last season United won the corresponding fixture 4-2, taking a crucial step towards securing a top four finish and securing their first league win at Old Trafford against their local rivals since 2011.
Back in September Leicester City pulled off one of the upsets of the season as they came from 3-1 down to beat Manchester United 5-3 at the King Power Stadium.
This result meant Louis van Gaal had won only one of his first six games in all competitions as Manchester United manager and many had started to write off their chances of UEFA Champions League football next season.
With this in mind you are probably confident of a Manchester United victory this weekend. Which may interest you in putting some money on them. You may wish to do so using any of the betting sites listed here.
