NEW online casinos for UK players in February 2023 Stay up to date with all the latest from Old Trafford… Jack FiggToday, 07:21Good morning Man Utd fans Erik ten Hag has told Harry Maguire he will get plenty of chances to regain his first team slot after blocking Inter Milan’s bid to take him on loan. Inter hoped to offer Maguire a route back to regular action in Serie A, but Manchester United boss ten Hag refused to let him leave. The centre back has started only four league games this season, with Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane the manager’s first choice partnership. Yet Ten Hag told Maguire this week that he will have lots of openings over the second half of the season, as United chase silverware on four fronts. The Dutchman has been impressed by Maguire’s attitude in training and how he has reacted to losing his place in recent weeks. And Ten Hag has reassured him that United’s hectic fixture schedule in the second half of the season will offer more opportunities to play.Meanwhile, Man Utd could sell SIX players this summer as Erik ten Hag plots a major clear out at Old Trafford, according to reports. The Dutchman has worked wonders on the pitch with United on course to qualify for the Champions League and end their six-year trophy drought. United’s improvements under Ten Hag have been built on his ruthlessness both on and off the pitch. And he’s set to continue with that attitude with the Mirror claiming that a mass exodus could happen at the end of the season. Harry Maguire could be the first out the door having fallen behind both Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez pecking order. Midfielders Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek will be joining them with the former starting once in the Prem since the Manc derby on 2 October, while the Dutchman’s time at Old Trafford has been a nightmare. The report also claims that Anthony Martial, who’s struggled to stay fit this campaign, will also be moved on. Martial has scored six goals in only 722 minutes of action this season, but he’s lost his place in the team to Marcus Rashford and Wout Weghorst. Meanwhile, loanees Eric Bailly and Alex Telles are also likely to have played their last games for United. Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag has slammed referee Andre Marriner for the dismissal of Casemiro. He said: “The player from Crystal Palace takes a big risk by this foul – that he get badly injured – by pushing him over the line.“Everyone is reacting, Crystal Palace players and Man United players, and not only Casemiro. “There was one of the players, he did even worse than Casemiro. You have to be consistent.” Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 22:34Maguire will get a chance Erik ten Hag has told Harry Maguire he will get plenty of chances to regain his first team slot after blocking Inter Milan’s bid to take him on loan. Inter hoped to offer Maguire a route back to regular action in Serie A, but Manchester United boss ten Hag refused to let him leave.

Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 22:10Greenwood ‘not wanted’ Man Utd stars do not want Mason Greenwood in the dressing room this season — because they fear it will disrupt their progress. The striker, 21, has been told he no longer faces charges of attempted rape, ABH and coercive and controlling behaviour. United bosses are still investigating his behaviour after images and audio were posted online by his alleged victim. While that continues, Greenwood is suspended on £100,000-a-week pay and not eligible to train or play. He last played in January 2022. A source said: “The players are open to him returning to the team but the scrutiny could be massively distracting. “The dressing room is the happiest it has been for ages and no one wants to rock the boat.” Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 21:34United clearout Man Utd could sell SIX this players this summer as Erik ten Hag plots a major clear out at Old Trafford, according to reports.

Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 20:40Rashford’s shirt plea Marcus Rashford has appealed to Manchester United fans to put him in contact with a fan he celebrated with. The in-form attacker hugged one United support after scoring his side’s second goal against Crystal Palace. Rashford now wants to be put in contact with the supporter so he can give him his match shirt. He posted an appeal on his Instagram story for his 14 million followers to look at. The post had a picture of the celebration along with the caption: “Whoever this guy is that I’m hugging, I would like to give him my shirt. “Tag him in the pic that I have just posted on my main page so I can sign it and get it to him.” Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 20:34De Gea riddle Fans urged David de Gea to speak his mind after the Manchester United keeper posted a curious clip of Jose Mourinho after Casemiro’s red card. United’s key midfielder Casemiro earned what could be a costly ban for “choking” Crystal Palace’s Will Hughes as the Red Devils won 2-1. And De Gea later put out a clip of ex-United boss Mourinho saying: “If I speak I am in big trouble, big trouble. And I don’t want to be in big trouble.” The Spanish stopper didn’t spell out his meaning – but many fans believed it was a reference to the Casemiro decision, given on VAR. Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 20:05De Gea praises team-mates David De Gea praised his Man Utd team-mates for their reaction after Casemiro was sent off. The Spanish keeper told MUTV: “It was tough, especially after the red card. I think we controlled the first half well, we scored an early goal, similar in the second half, we started really well, scored a second but after the red, it was really tough. “We fought until the end and I think the team did really well because they put players in front, good players, and we defend really well. We concede one goal but we won a massive three points today. It’s not easy to lose a big player like Casemiro. “Then they start to attack and there’s still 15 minutes to go, so I think we showed massive spirit today, great character, the whole team and the players from the bench have been amazing, so that means we’re doing really good things as a team. “We defended really well, the manager made good changes and we felt solid at the back. We fight a lot as a team.” Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 19:24Ten Hag slams ref Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag has slammed referee Andre Marriner for the dismissal of Casemiro. He said: “The player from Crystal Palace takes a big risk by this foul – that he get badly injured – by pushing him over the line. “Everyone is reacting, Crystal Palace players and Man United players, and not only Casemiro. “There was one of the players, he did even worse than Casemiro. “You have to be consistent.” Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 18:31Stat alert Erik ten Hag has made history. The Dutch tactician has taken the least amount of games in the to win 25 games for Man Utd. Ex-Ajax boss ten Hag has managed it in just 34 games. Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 17:43Fortress Old Trafford The Red Devils are on fire at the moment. Manchester United have won their last 13 home games in all competitions. It’s their longest run at Old Trafford since a run of 20 between December 2010 and September 2011. It’s becoming a fortress. Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 17:01United have held on Ooh that was a nervy finish! But Man Utd have clung on for three vital points against Crystal Palace. It looked like they were cruising at 2-0, but a Casemiro sending off followed by a Jeffrey Schlupp provided a tense final few minutes.

And Marcus Rashford continued his hot streak in front of goal, doubling United’s lead with just under half an hour to go. But eight minutes later, disaster struck as Antony tried to beat his man before being wiped out – sparking a huge brawl between the two teams. Casemiro stepped in to try and hold Palace’s Hughes back. But the Brazilian had placed his hands around his fellow midfielder’s neck, resulting in a red card. Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 16:38Palace fans taunt Utd Crystal Palace fans have taunted Manchester United in their first game since Mason Greenwood had his attempted rape charges dropped. As the two teams faced off at Old Trafford today, Palace fans could be heard singing unsavoury chants including “Mason Greenwood he’s one of your own”. It comes as Greenwood missed training yesterday after the charges against him were dropped. Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 16:252-0 Man Utd have taken a 2-0 lead against Crystal Palace. Luke Shaw whips in a cross, and it’s that man – Marcus Rashford – who has scored the goal. This man can do no wrong at the moment. Jon Boon4th Feb 2023, 16:11Glazers could delay sale The Glazers could reportedly delay the sale of Manchester United following the on-pitch success of Erik ten Hag, which could see the price of the club rise to over £8billion. The Red Devils chiefs revealed in November that they were willing to listen to offers for either a stake in the Premier League giants or an outright purchase. But United look to be on an upwards trend. Ten Hag’s Man Utd are in the Carabao Cup final, which they will contest later this month against Newcastle, and they’re well in the race for a top-four finish. And according to ESPN, due to Ten Hag getting a tune out of the Red Devils, the Glazers could delay the sale of the Old Trafford club. Some within the ownership group believe that the value of the club could skyrocket if Ten Hag steers his team into a lengthy successful patch. Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 16:00Half-Time It’s been a dominant first-half for Manchester United who lead Crystal Palace 1-0 at the break. The only disappointment for Erik ten Hag will be that the Red Devils have not scored more in that first-half. Bruno Fernandes’ early penalty after a Will Hughes handball has set United up for a 12th consecutive home victory in all competitions. Follow all the second-half action with our live match blog here. Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 15:43Missing Man Anthony Martial has been dealt a fresh injury blow with the Frenchman missing from Manchester United’s match day squad for the Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.  The 27-year-old has been plagued with injuries this season. He has missed 18 games this term, mostly through muscular injuries. Martial was due to return to action for Man Utd on Saturday in the home Premier League clash with Crystal Palace. But according to The Athletic, the winger has suffered a fresh setback and will miss the game. The latest injury blow will not be good news for Martial, who will have been hoping to impress new boss Erik ten Hag after returning from a loan spell at Sevilla last summer. Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 15:16Early Lead Manchester United have an early goal at Old Trafford as Bruno Fernandes converts a penalty against Crystal Palace. Having scored against the Eagles 17 days ago, Fernandes has done it again after Will Hughes was judged to have handled the ball by VAR. Follow all the action here. Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 15:08Game Underway After both sides paid a respectful tribute to victims of the Munich air disaster as we approach the Feb 6 anniversary, the game has gotten underway. Follow full coverage of the game at Old Trafford here. Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 14:47Chance for Revenge A late goal by Michael Olise – followed by a late goal by Eddie Nketiah a few days later – effectively ended United’s title challenge before it even began. That draw at Selhurst Park was only 17 days ago but this afternoon’s game gives the Red Devils a chance to respond. United have only won one of their last five against the south London club but will be confident about continuing their sizzling home form. They have won 12 in a row at Old Trafford in all competitions, last failing to get victory at home in mid-October with a 0-0 draw with Newcastle. Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 14:17Four Changes for United Fred has come in for the injured Christian Eriksen in one of four changes for Man United from last week’s FA Cup win over Reading. Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw also take their places back in defence against Crystal Palace. New signing Marcel Sabitzer is on the bench. Erik ten Hag is looking for his Man United side to keep up their brilliant 2023 form Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 13:58’Massive Thank You’ Jadon Sancho has paid tribute to fans on Instagram after returning to first-team action in midweek. After a difficult few months for the winger, he has thanked everyone for support as he returned to social media. Sancho will be hoping for brighter months ahead after coming off the bench against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 13:26Feeling Blue Chelsea are ready to continue their spending spree with a mega-money summer move for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, writes SunSport’s Dan King. The Blues’ new owners believe the Nigeria international could be the final piece in a puzzle having already spent more than £600m. And they would be prepared to break the British transfer record of £107m they have just set for Enzo Fernandez in order to land Osimhen. The striker, 24, is set to be one of the most in-demand players in the next transfer window. Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are among the clubs also in the hunt for Osimhen, whose 14 goals in 16 Serie A games have sent Napoli to the top of the table. Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 12:53Bringing Back the ‘Winning Culture’ Erik ten Hag has underlined his intentions to take Manchester United back to the summit of English football. Ahead of today’s clash with Crystal Palace, the Dutchman said: “What we want is for good to not be good enough, we want to bring that winning culture to this club which was previously the case for a long time, which is why it won so many trophies in the last decades. “Obviously, the last years it has not been so much and we have to get back to those days and that is only possible when you have the right structure and strategy. “And that is the way and direction we want to go in. Finally, it has to come that we are winning trophies again.” Kiro Evans4th Feb 2023, 12:24No Zaha Former Manchester United star Wilfried Zaha will be absent for Crystal Palace today as the London side head to Old Trafford. Ten years ago last week, the winger agreed a £10m move to join United. He would make only four appearances before being sent out on loan and then eventually returning to Palace. The 30-year-old is injured for the game in what will be a boost for United. But Michael Olise reminded the Red Devils that Patrick Vieira’s side have threats all over the pitch when the two met just weeks ago.
