Before analysing Manchester United’s December fixture for the 2015-16 Premier League, let me first touch upon the current situation at the club that has caused a consternation among the fans and the pundits.
I seriously do not understand the clamour of United being a boring club under Louis van Gaal. Starting from former players, to bloggers, to football pundits – it seems like a majority of United followers are frustrated with the football being deployed under Louis van Gaal.
Let me give you a stat – 7 out of 9 points being picked up in November, 3rd in the EPL table with just one point behind Manchester City, high chances of qualifying for the knock-out phases of the Champions League – what more the fans want?
Ok, I get the point that United were always a free-flowing attacking team under Sir Alex Ferguson, but that doesn’t mean the new manager will have to carry on the same tradition.
Moreover, LvG is not here for the long term. He wants to win at any cost and he is ready to do it by playing ugly. When did the United fans become so obsessed with the style of football a la Real Madrid supporters? When did the brand of football become the first priority over winning matches?
Manchester United 2015-16 December Fixtures
Premier League: Manchester United vs West Ham / 05 December 2015
Champions League: Wolfsburg vs Manchester United / 08 December 2015
Premier League: Bournemouth vs Manchester United / 12 December 2015
Premier League: Manchester United vs Norwich / 19 December 2015
Premier League: Stoke City vs Manchester United / 26 December 2015
Premier League: Manchester United vs Chelsea / 28 December 2015
December presents an easy fixture list for the Red Devils and presents a golden opportunity to pick up as many as 13 points from possible 15.
For a side challenging for the Premier League, they should win against the likes of West Ham, Stoke City, Norwich and Bournemouth.
The Chelsea fixture could prove to be tricky, especially if Jose Mourinho can manage a good run of results heading into the fixture, but United will enjoy the home advantage, where they haven’t lost a single game at Old Trafford this season.
