Premier League Preview - Manchester United

Manchester United

Its looks as if it could be another season at the top for Sir Alex Ferguson’s men. Despite losing star player Crisitano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez at the beginning of last season Manchester United only finished one point behind eventual champions Chelsea.

Last season; Wayne Rooney was the star and had an outstanding season, scoring 34 goals in 44 appearances in total, while evergreen players Ryan Giggs, Edwin Van Der Sar and Paul Scholes still continued to impress with their professionalism and ability. Also the likes of Parki Ji-Sung, Patrice Evra, Darren Fletcher and Namanja Vidic all impressed last campaign and are expected for big roles this season.

This summer no major signings have been made, how the Red Devils have added young promising star Javier Hernandez, young centre back Chris Smalling and unknown Brazilian known as Bebe, to the squad as they look to the future.

Expect them to push Chelsea all the way this year.

Key Player: Wayne Rooney

The Englishman had a torrid World Cup and looked disinterested to be in South Africa. Now he’s back in Manchester and looks to build on the 26 league goals he scored last year. Everyone knows the quality and importance of Wayne Rooney to Man United, and at the age of just 24 years old, expect him to continue on the road of becoming one of the greatest players of all time.

Manager: Sir Alex Ferguson

Key Signing: Javier Hernandez

A player we preview on Real Talk Football four months ago, click to read, looks like being one of the most promising young strikers to touch down on these shores for some time. Signed a reported £7million impressed at the world cup and in Manchester United’s preseason, and is expected to cause stiff competition for Dimitar Berbatov when the Premier League starts.

Aims: Challenge for all four trophies this year

Prediction: 2nd

Manchester United are still one of the best and most experienced sides in the World, and will certainly push Chelsea all the way in the title race once again, while fending off the challenge from Arsenal and Manchester City.

First Five Fixtures: Newcastle (H), Fulham (A), West Ham (H), Everton (A), Liverpool (H)
