MAnchester United- Recap Week 12

Week highlights

Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers are currently under fire because of their squad’s lackluster performances in the top-flight league. Similarly, Hull is at risk of losing their Premier league status after dropping points during their Tottenham clash.

The blunders

Apparently, Arsenal and Liverpool should man up. The depth of their team form should

 

What to expect

Manchester United is showing some improvement. They’re slowly finding their way back to the top and hopefully, such change will bring more glory and prestige to the (struggling) club.
