    Train fears for Prem giants

    Chelsea and Manchester United supporters are facing travel chaos for their respective fixtures at Liverpool and Arsenal this week.

    That is due to Avanti West Coast delaying the release of advance tickets between London and the North West.

    The train company announced earlier this month that engineering works would have a huge impact on travel between all routes to and from London’s Euston station.

    That engineering work has prevented fans from booking tickets for this weekend as the train timetables have yet to be finalised.

    From SunSport reporter Neil Custis

    Erik ten Hag insisted that his team celebrated the Manchester derby victory to keep "energy" in the ranks.

    Ten Hag said: “I think every win you have to celebrate. You work so hard for such momentum and every win is so great in top football and if you can’t celebrate you kill the energy as well.

    “So we have to celebrate but after it we have to settle down after 24 hours and move on to the next game. You have to get in the right rhythm every third day and we have to deliver.

    “The players have to get in the right rhythm from a physical point of view but also mentally – be ready for the next game.”

    Depay 'wants Atletico over United'

    Memphis Depay is not thinking about a return to Man Utd and instead wants to join Atletico Madrid from Barcelona.

    Fabrizio Romano told Soccernews: “Memphis Depay 100% wants to leave Barcelona and he will leave the club in January. Atletico Madrid is his first priority at this moment in time.

    "They are really looking for a replacement for Joao Felix, so Atletico Madrid are now focusing on Depay.

    “Inter Milan was also a possibility and of course Manchester United as well. But now that Man United signed Wout Weghorst I don't think that they are going to sign another striker.”

    Gunners warned off AWB move

    Ray Parlour has warned Arsenal not to make a bid for Man Utd right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

    He told Lord Ping: "I don’t think Arsenal need a right-back. They have Tomiyasu, who’s an excellent player.

    "I see Wan-Bissaka has been given his opportunity again for Manchester United, he's done nothing wrong.

    "But at the moment I don’t think Arsenal will be going down that road."

    Ronnie to lead against Leo

    Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly captain a Saudi All-Stars side against Lionel Messi's PSG this month.

    The ex-Man Utd man will line up for a star XI boasting players from Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal in a friendly against the French champs.

    That means Ronaldo will come face-to-face with arch-rival Messi yet again.

    And the veteran Portugal legend is reportedly set to be given the captain's armband for the occasion.

    Elanga tipped for loan exit

    Anthony Elanga could get a fresh start this month… at Borussia Dortmund.

    The winger has slipped down the ranks at Man Utd following the signing of Antony and the emergence of Alejandro Garnacho.

    TalkSport now claim Dortmund are keen on signing Elanga for the rest of the season.

    But there is also interest from Everton should the Sweden international wish to remain in the Premier League.

    United trio up for sale

    Man Utd are ready to offload three fringe players this month as Erik ten Hag looks to trim his squad.

    Footy Insider claims Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe and Tom Heaton will be shown the door to free up space and wages.

    Jones is pocketing £110,000-a-week despite being an emergency back-up, with Tuanzebe also on the fringes.

    As for Heaton, he is surplus to requirements after United swooped for Jack Butland as their new No2.

    Moyes reveals huge Fergie secret

    David Moyes has revealed he was told to keep the news he was being appointed Manchester United manager a SECRET.

    The Scot replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but was sacked less than a year later.

    Now-West Ham boss Moyes said: "The biggest problem I had, is that he [Fergie] said you couldn't tell anybody that I'm retiring. He said that nobody knows.

    "He said tell your wife but no one… so I couldn't tell my kids, I couldn't tell my dad, couldn't tell my dad that I was getting the job, so that for me was how it happened."

    Midfield duo risk Arsenal suspension

    Casemiro and Fred could miss Man Utd's crunch clash with Arsenal.

    That's because the pair are just a booking away from suspension.

    And Erik ten Hag will warn his midfielders to be on their best behaviour against Crystal Palace tomorrow night.

    Mike Arteta will be keeping a close eye on proceedings as he plots revenge, with United the only side to beat Arsenal so far this season.

    Newcastle line up McTominay swoop

    Newcastle boss Eddie Howe is reportedly eyeing a move for Man Utd misfit Scott McTominay.

    The Telegraph claims Toon are keen to take advantage of the midfielder's situation at Old Trafford, with McTominay last in Erik ten Hag's pecking order.

    The Scotland ace is said to be concerned by his lack of action for the Red Devils.

    And Newcastle could offer an escape route as they battle United for a top four finish… and potentially the Premier League title.

    Morning, United fans

    Marcus Rashford could land a new five-year contract, United have moved for Denzel Dumfries and Newcastle fancy Scott McTominay.

    That's the top player talk around Old Trafford as the Red Devils prepare for Wednesday's Premier League clash at Crystal Palace.

    United are willing to hand England striker Rashford, 25, a 50% pay rise to £300,000 a week.

    But club chiefs are anxious not to go above that mark, despite their leading earner David de Gea picking up £375k.

    Meanwhile, it's claimed the Red Devils have stolen a march on Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs by launching talks over Dumfries.

    Inter Milan would reportedly consider selling the Holland right-back, 26, for around £53million.

    Sweden attacker Jesper Karlsson has also been linked to United.

    The 24-year-old is tipped to leave Dutch club AZ Alkmaar this year. 

    But United's one-club man McTominay could be tempted away by top-four rivals Newcastle. 

    The Scotland midfielder, 26, is understood to want more game-time.

    Finally, the Red Devils and United are said to be monitoring Real Betis winger Luiz Henrique.

    Rice at ‘centre of £80m transfer fight’

    Declan Rice has been identified as Arsenal’s top summer transfer target, reports suggest.

    West Ham star Rice is entering the final year of his contract at the London Stadium this summer – although there is an optional extra year – and with their recent struggles, Rice may finally opt to jump ship.

    A number of top clubs are interested in the 24-year-old, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal.

    This summer is set to see a bidding war for the Englishman, which could see him eventually leave for £80million.

    However, according to The Times, Arsenal believe they are in the strong position to sign Rice because they are the Premier League leaders.

    The report indicates the Gunners remain keen on a new midfielder, and consequently have made Rice their priority.

    Rice fits the mould of player targeted by Mikel Arteta in recent windows. He is young, aggressive, and has a burning desire to play in the Champions League – something Arsenal look all but certain to be able to offer next season.

    Arsenal did prioritise signing a new winger this month but saw their efforts to land Mykhailo Mudryk fail after Chelsea threw a colossal package at the Ukrainian.

    ‘Most Utd fans disappointed by Antony’

    Paul Parker believes £85.5million winger Antony “seems very immature on the pitch” and has “disappointed” most Manchester United fans.

    The ex-Old Trafford defender claims the Brazil ace, 22, recruited from Ajax in August, has yet to adjust to English football.

    Former England star Parker told Soccernews: “Antony has done okay for Man United.

    “He hasn’t been amazing but he is also young and needs to adapt to the Premier League.

    “But honestly, I think that the vast majority of the fans have been disappointed by him.

    “They expected a different kind of player. They expected him to be very quick and run past defenders but he hasn’t really done that.”

    “I personally think that he is thinking too slow and he seems very immature on the pitch. He needs to beat people more and believe in himself because he has the abilities to be a very good winger for Man United.”

    Ronaldo set to be skipper vs Messi's PSG

    Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly make his Saudi Arabian debut as CAPTAIN as he prepares to face off with old rival Lionel Messi.

    Ronaldo and Messi have been at the forefront of world football for well over 15 years.

    Both continued to reach new heights, including dominating the famous Ballon d'Or trophy from 2008 to 2017.

    However, Ronaldo finally called time on his European career after signing for Saudi side Al Nassr following the mutual termination of his deal at Manchester United.

    Ronaldo signed a record-breaking £173million-a-year contract at the club.

    And now, according to Marca, Ronaldo will make his debut in an exhibition match against Messi's Paris Saint-Germain.

    Rashford in talks over new 5-year Utd deal

    Manchester United are in talks with Marcus Rashford over a new five-year, £300,000-a-week contract.

    But the Red Devils will not bust their new pay structure for him.

    The club do not want to go above a £300k ceiling as they aim to move away from the days when players like Alexis Sanchez earned £500,000-a-week.

    United also had issues with huge wages for former stars Paul Pogba and Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Rashford, 25, is currently on £200,000-a-week and will be offered a 50 per cent pay rise with incentives on top of that.

    The current top earner at the club is goalkeeper David de Gea on £375,000-a-week.

    But with his deal running out in the summer, they will only offer the 32-year-old reduced terms of around £275,000.

    ‘Red Devils battle Gunners for Luiz’

    Arsenal and Manchester United have joined the race to sign Real Betis winger Luiz Henrique, according to Fichajes.

    Ten Hag is an 'angel' blessing the Devils

    Erik ten Hag is "the best thing that has happened for Man United for many, many years" -an "angel" for the Devils.

    That's the verdict of ex-United defender Paul Parker after the Dutchman guided them to third in the Prem.

    Parker told Soccernews: "He has arrived like an angel with the purpose of blessing the club.”

    “Even the ones that doesn´t like Man United must say that he has done incredibly well since he arrived.

    "I think that people were expecting the Man United circus to continue but he has proved to be an excellent manager.”

    “He has first of all brought discipline to the club.

    "There are no longer being spread weird stories and rumours from the locker room and I think we need to give him credit for that.”

    “His record is amazing with the club and he became the fastest Man United manager ever to get 20 wins. But you can not compare his stats to Sir Alex Ferguson because it was a different time.”

    Forest confirm Danilo coup

    Nottingham Forest have seen off competition from Manchester United, Arsenal and Barcelona to land Brazilian wonderkid Danilo.

    Steve Cooper has pulled off an £18million coup to sign the 21-year-old Palmeiras defensive midfielder, with the help of his former team-mate Gustavo Scarpa.

    Danilo, who will wear the No28 shirt, has signed a six-and a-half-year deal which commits him to Forest until the summer of 2029.

    After completing his move to The City Ground, Danilo said: “I’m really happy to be fulfilling my dream of playing in the Premier League and playing for Nottingham Forest.

    “I learnt a bit about the history of the Club and saw they had won two European Cups.

    "I spoke to Gustavo Scarpa as well, and he told me that Nottingham is a great city and Forest have a quality squad with really good staff.

    “I will show a lot of determination and a strong desire to win and will always look to do my best on the pitch to achieve positive results.

    “I’m excited about getting started and meeting my new team-mates.”

    ‘Exciting ‘Garnacho tipped to grow with Utd

    John Barnes has singled out “exiting” 18-year-old Alejandro Garnacho for fast-improving United.

    The Red Devils were trailing 1-0 win when the Argentinian winger came on after 72 minutes of Saturday’s 2-1 comeback home win over neighbours City.

    Ex-Liverpool and England wideman Barnes told BonusCodeBets: “Garnacho is a great talent and he has great potential. 

    “He’s quick and exciting on the ball.

    “However, you shouldn’t look to these young players to be the guys to ensure United finish in the top four.” 

    The Red Devils are currently third, five points clear of Tottenham in fifth.

    Utd face Casemiro & Fred dilemma

    Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag faces a selection headache ahead of Wednesday’s Prem clash at Crystal Palace.

    Midfield enforcers Casemiro and Fred face being BANNED for Sunday’s trip to Arsenal if they are booked against Palace.

    United make the trip down to Selhurst Park on Wednesday and Ten Hag will be desperate for the Brazilian duo to be on their best behaviour throughout.

    They both picked up a yellow card for their efforts in the comeback victory in the Manchester derby – with Casemiro providing an assist for Bruno Fernnandes’ controversial opener.

    However, it means both now sit on four yellow cards for the season.

    Premier League rules dictate players who receive five yellow cards within the first 19 games of the season will be slapped with a one-game ban.

    Following the derby, United have played 18 league games.

    And this means Casemiro and Fred face a ban if they are unable to keep out of the referee’s book.

    Guehi positive for United visit

    Crystal Palace centre-half Marc Guehi says Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea has not knocked their confidence ahead of Wednesday visit of Manchester United.

    He told the Eagles’ club website: “We showed that spirit and togetherness in the game and it’s unfortunate that we didn’t come away with at least a point.

    “Football is a harsh world. It comes down to the details, to both boxes, and in the end they were just better.

    “We competed well, we definitely stayed in the game. We created a few chances ourselves – at half-time we felt good.”

    Weghorst is ‘ten Hag’s signing’

    Rio Ferdinand believes Erik ten Hag is responsible for the signing of Wout Weghorst, and the Dutch tactician could get the best out of him for United.

    “I think this is a Ten Hag signing, and it is actually just is going against what United were doing before. We were buying [Radamel] Falcao, Zlatan [Ibrahimovic],” he told 90min.

    “We were buying names maybe before going ‘does this guy fit the way we want to play?’. This is very much not a fashionable signing, it’s not one that rolls off the tongue.

    “But I think if you look at Ten Hag’s history, you look at Ajax, he took [Sebastien] Haller, who no one was taking in the Premier League, off of West Ham, and he becomes one of the most feared strikers in Holland.

    “But also in Champions League football, he was up there with the top strikers in terms of goals in the couple of seasons he was there. That type of player, a Weghorst, suits the way that Erik ten Hag wants to play if you look at Haller as the one example, so you can see why he would bring him.

    “He’s got to have something about him. I don’t think you can judge him by the Burnley cameo, and I just think it’s about styles for Erik ten Hag, would he be able to fit into the way we play? In the way I want to play? Yes.”
