Leicester vs Manchester United

Pre-Match Analysis Leicester vs United. A crucial game for both teams and one that is key for the top position in the league. Leicester, who are currently on 28 points and are incredibly 1st in the league, have stormed the league with sublime form in recent games. Their 3-0 away win against Newcastle United moved them up as leaders of the league, however Manchester United are not far behind. Currently in 2nd place, United are out for a win. Their most recent game against PSV in the Champions League did not go according to plan but none the less, Manchester United have proven on several occasions, just how great of a side they are. The clash between the top teams in the league will be one of the most important matches of the league and with both teams being in good form we can almost definitely expect goals. With players like Jamie Vardy and Chris Smalling being on incredible form, the game will be no doubt be one to watch. The real question everyone will be asking is whether Leiceste…

Manchester United vs PSV

Pre-Match Analysis: Tonight's game sees Manchester United take part in the Champions league group qualifying round against PSV Eindhoven. After playing 4 games, United sit top of the table with 7 points whilst their opponents PSV are currently second with 6 points. Group B is definitely the tightest group where only 3 points separate the top and bottom teams. CSKA versus Wolfsburg is the other fixture to be played tonight in Group B so keep an eye out for the scores in that game.

United are in a comfortable position so far but ideally would want to win the group so a win today is required. At the very worst, a draw would not be a terrible result but after the reverse fixture of losing 2-1 against PSV, the Red Devils will be looking to bounce back win a solid win. The game was dominated by the horrific injury caused to our left-back Luke Shaw, who is making tremendous progress to get match-fit. Goals from Moreno and Narsingh cancelled out Memphis Depay's opening goal. Hopefull…

Watford vs Manchester United

Pre-Match Analysis: The Premier League is back after the International break and today’s early kick-off is between United and 11th placed Watford. With 16 points to their name, Watford will be a tough opposition.
Previously, Watford lost 2-1 to Leicester City and as a whole they have struggled to attain any real form. Teams enjoy playing against us and trying to cause an upset so Watford will definitely be looking to come to the Theatre of dreams today and get a win. Their captain Troy Deeney is their talisman and carries their team forward. He will be looking to push on and get some more goals for his team. He scored in their last league game too from the penalty spot so we will need to watch him carefully. His strike partner, Ighalo is playing some good football at the moment too and the two forwards have built up a promising partnership. Former Tottenham man Capoue is in their midfield and offers something extra for them. Their weaknesses are in their defence although they have a …

England vs France

Pre-Match Analysis:Football, Faith and Family Today's game is a special one, filled with many emotions. Football unites people together across the world. The precious game that we all love is a celebration of the family of football.
On Friday, the horror of the Paris attacks shook the world and brought us together as one nation. Today we will be observing a one minute silence at Wembley Stadium in memory of the innocent people that lost their lives and their families that are grieving. Also, in the stadium, the French national anthem will be displayed on the screens so that all the fans can sing along and pay their tributes. This is a great sign of how Football is more than just a sport. It is important to remember that there was a possibility that the game today would be cancelled. Now this fixture holds even more importance.

Despite their previous loss to Spain, there were flashes of play to suggest that Hodgson's men have formed a good relationship between them. However, the…
