Manchester United was beaten by Manchester United in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium

By playing one game more and winning, Manchester City remain six points clear of Liverpool.
Manchester United in this match did not present Christiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani due to injury, Rapahel Varane and Luke Shaw due to Covid -19.

A precise low shot resulted in the Belgian's second goal in the scramble for goal mouth. And Kevinbruyne was central to this win, putting City ahead with a fine finish and restoring the lead.

City stepped up strategy after the break then took the lead in the 68th minute. When Riyad Mahrez found De Bruyne's corner with a half-volley and beat United goalkeeper David de Gea.

After a long VAR check for offside. City provided the closing goal by Mahrez.

From the start of the first whistle as City forced to score against Manchester United, De Bruyne scored twice to give City a third, and they are in no mood to give up their title at the Etihad Stadium.

In the first half City's performance was impressive but after halftime their form was even more amazing and City were able to beat United, who at that time United were not given the opportunity to hold the ball and hold off attacks.

The ball was dominated by City, and broke through United's defense to make United lose.
This match was like a torture for United, Maguire in a position outside City looked to give the ball into the goal mouth and get the second goal.
He also got a yellow card for making a rough tackle.

The defeat in this match left United desperate for an important fourth place. This grim evidence makes winning in Europe's elite competition a fantasy with evidence of this poor game, and it is painful to watch United chase the shadows and lose every shadow.

And against City it was a bleak affair that even weighed heavily in their campaign to save their season.

Manchester maintain their grip on top four spot in Premier League

In the first game in front of the fans between the two old rivals at Elland Road since October 2003, they produced a spectacle fit to play in a flood and atmosphere that was expected to be thunderous.

What a resurgence
level with two goals in one minute, Rodrigo's cross in the 53rd minute drifted behind goalkeeper David de Gea. And the substitute sent Elland Road into joy when he sent in a cross from Daniel James

Eagles came back to seal Manchester United's win with a quiet finish two minutes from time from Fernandes' pass.

Manchester United took a tough road to a phase win - possession in the first half, quick shock then recovery to finally seal the win

Leeds showed their defensive weakness in the first half when Diego Llorente failed miserably to mark Maguire in a corner, a situation not helped by goalkeeper Meslier's hokey-cokey 'in-out' which left him in no man's land.

They were hit again when Victor Lindelof stepped out of defense to feed Sancho for a perfect cross over Fernandes' head to send a cloud of gloom over Elland Road, to accompany those who continued to pour down rain on the left field which brought water to the surface.


Manchester United out of the top 4

Manchester United out of the top 4 as Cristiano Ronaldo’s dry spell continues

Ronaldo didn't even start the 1-1 draw at last-place Burnley on Tuesday, only appearing as a second-half substitute and failing to score for a fifth straight game. That's his worst run without a goal at club level since 2010.

The problems run deeper than the scoring slump of one of the world’s great strikers, though.

The way United dropped off in the second half was alarming, just like the team did in the second half of its FA Cup game at home to second-tier Middlesbrough on Friday. United lost a penalty shootout on that occasion.

Also alarming was the defending by England center back Harry Maguire that allowed lanky striker Wout Weghorst, Burnley’s new signing, to turn him in the middle of the field and play in Jay Rodriguez for the equalizer in the 47th minute.

That canceled out the 18th-minute opener by Paul Pogba, starting for the second game after a long injury layoff and probably United’s best player in the first half.

United actually scored three times before halftime but two were ruled out, first for an offside against Maguire _ before he blocked off Rodriguez prior to Raphael Varane heading home _ and then for an innocuous-looking foul by Pogba.

United fell to fifth place, a point behind West Ham, which was a 1-0 winner over Watford on Tuesday.

“A frustrating night for us because we should have won that game comfortably,“ Rangnick said. “We scored three goals in the first half so I couldn’t blame the team for not having a killer instinct in the first half.

“In the end it was also a little question of luck. One point for a performance like this is just not enough.”

De Gea and Cristiano Ronaldo Unfollow Mason Greenwood, Because of Violence?

MDP Live - A number of Manchester United (MU) players suddenly did not follow Mason Greenwood's account on Instagram. The action was revealed after Greenwood was suspected of committing violence against his ex-lover.

Some players who no longer follow (unfollow) Greenwood are David de Gea and Alex Telles. Apart from the two, there are Paul Pogba and Cristiano Ronaldo who also unfollowed Greenwood.

Previously, a woman named Harriet Robson uploaded a photo of the alleged violence by Greenwood. In the photo, Robson's face is seen bleeding and some parts of his body are bruised.

"For all who want to know what Mason Greenwood did to me," Harriet wrote in the caption.

Not only that, Harriet also uploaded a recording of Greenwood's voice. In the recording, the 20-year-old player allegedly forced his ex-lover to have sex.

MU official statement

MU itself immediately issued an official statement. The Red Devils refused to comment further on this slanted news.

"We know about the photos and accusations circulating on social media. We will not comment further until there are solid facts. MU does not tolerate any form of violence," wrote an official MU statement.

Career Threat

If found guilty, Greenwood's career is clearly in jeopardy. Even though he started to get a place in the MU first team.

The MU academy dropout has played 24 times this season. From that opportunity, Greenwood has scored six goals.

Manchester United Failed To Get To The Champions League, Ronaldo Asks His Agent To Immediately Decide On A New Club

MDP Live - Cristiano Ronaldo is rumored to be leaving United if the 20-times English champions fail to qualify for next season's Champions League. Ronaldo is also reportedly ready to find a new club.

According to El Nacional, the 36-year-old Manchester United player has asked his agent Jorge Mendes to determine which clubs are interested in his signature ahead of the 2022-23 season.

Ronaldo is said to be returning to Real Madrid this summer. The Portugal international rejoined United from Juventus last year.

Ronaldo has impressed for the Red Devils this season. He has scored 14 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions.

The report claims that Ronaldo would love to return to Madrid. He is desperate to win more trophies before the end of his career.

Hundreds of Goals

Ronaldo scored 450 goals and registered 132 assists in 438 appearances for Los Blancos between 2009 and 2018 before moving to Juventus.

Ronaldo, who is under contract at Old Trafford until June 2023, won two La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey crowns and four Champions League trophies during his time in the Spanish capital.

Strong Criticism

Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be keeping tabs on his development. Previously, this rich club had brought in another megastar Lionel Messi.

Previously, it was reported that Ronaldo was heavily criticized for his reaction when he was substituted by Harry Maguire in the match against Brentford in the Premier League. He was substituted in the 71st minute as Manchester United were 2-0 up.


Ronaldo was disappointed by the decision of United's interim manager Ralf Rangnick to pull him out. However, the German tactician considered Ronaldo's reaction to be normal.

"That's natural. A striker wants to score, but he's just returned from a minor injury and it's more important to remember that we have another game coming up," Rangnick told BT Sport.

Best Behavior

The match, which was played at the Brentford Community Stadium, last Thursday (20/1/2022), was won by Manchester United with a score of 3-1. The three Red Devils goals were scored by Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood, and Marcus Rashford.

However, Ronaldo showed his best behavior when Man Utd faced West Ham United on Saturday, January 22. Not only that, he also played a role in Rashfrod's winning goal for the Red Devils.

Ronaldo's Revenge, Man City's Replacement Twisted MU's Target Player

MDP Live - Manchester City was hurt by city rivals Manchester United at the end of the 2021 summer transfer market. MU snatched Cristiano Ronaldo, who almost moved to City.

When Ronaldo wanted to leave Juventus in the summer of 2021, Manchester City had been very favored to get the man from Portugal. It is said that a personal agreement has been reached.

Ronaldo's move to City has not been completed only because of the problem of the transfer dowry to Juventus. In the final moments MU came to overtake City. In a short time, the Red Devils managed to repatriate Ronaldo.

MU was moving so fast. In less than 24 hours they managed to secure Ronaldo from Juventus. The Red Devils signed Ronaldo because they did not want to see him in the City uniform.

Now City have the opportunity to repay Manchester United by twisting the talented young Argentine player Julian Alvarez from River Plate. MU had been championed to get Alvarez at the beginning of 2022.


But the situation has changed, City is now claimed by journalist Hernan Castillo who has the most opportunity to get Alvarez. City's offer is considered the most tempting for River.

City are believed to be securing Alvarez soon. The price is relatively cheap. River only set a release clause of 17 million pounds considering the contract will expire at the end of the year.

Seductive Proporal

City's proposal was quite pleasing to River. The Citizens are allegedly willing to let Alvarez stay with River until June or even after the Copa Libertadores finishes in October 2022.

Alvarez is one of the most talented talents in South America today. He shone with River by making 24 goals and 15 assists from 46 appearances in various competitions.


The 21-year-old will fit the criteria of a player favored by City manager Josep Guardiola Alvarez who can play in various positions up front.

City have also just released one of their forwards, Ferran Torres, to Barcelona. Julian Alvarez is expected to be the successor to Sergio Aguero at City.

Meeting with club officials, Rangnick offers another new name for MU's target

MDP Live - Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick met with the club's top brass earlier this month. Rangnick explained a lot about the condition of the players of this Premier League club.

During the meeting, Rangnick advised United to sign Wolves defender Max Kilman, who has been in good form for the Black Country side this season.

Rangnick has actually mentioned a number of players the club should be targeting during the current transfer window. RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara's name is among them.

New chief executive Richard Arnold, who was present at the meeting, said he remains to see the submissions, and will immediately respond to Rangnick's comments.

Previously, Rangnick made a surprising statement saying that captain Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were not good enough to play.


During his presentation Rangnick did expose the team's defensive weaknesses and recommended that major changes were needed.

Rangnick insists all three players need to be replaced. MU said the German coach needed to change.


Previously, it was reported that United would offer four players as consideration for a move for midfielder Jude Bellingham. This Premier League club needs a new player in this position.

The Red Devils are looking for reinforcements in midfield, as Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are all out of contract in the summer.


According to the Daily Mirror, Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek and Eric Bailly are the three players United are ready to offer in exchange for Bellingham.

These three players have now been thrown from the first team. Martial even wants to leave Old Trafford this month or in the summer.


Rangnick took the lead at Old Trafford in November following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 63-year-old will oversee the team until the end of the season before taking on a consultant role for the next two years.

Part of his focus in the coming years will be based on talent assessment and identification. And he has properly informed the club's top brass about the players the club already has.

Refusing a new contract, Barcelona immediately sells Ousmane Dembele to Juventus or MU

MDP Live - Barcelona have received confirmation from Ousmane Dembele. The French winger refused a contract extension offered by Barca.

In recent weeks, Barcelona have tried to seek a new contract for Ousmane Dembele. As per Xavi Hernandez's recommendation, this player must be retained.

But Dembele's demands were too great. He refused to accept the offer of a pay cut and insisted on his initial request.

The problem is, Dembele also refuses to be sold this January. He wants to be sold for free when his contract expires on June 30.

This condition certainly will not be taken by Barcelona. Reportedly there are two clubs that have been monitoring Dembele, namely Juventus and Manchester United.

Dembele's Request

Dembele has rejected a new offer from Barcelona. He believes that he has become one of the best players in the world so he must be paid properly.

As reported by sport, Dembele asked for a salary of 500 million euros or 100 million euros per season plus 20 million euros for agents and 20 million euros in bonuses for extending the contract.


Barcelona must immediately find a buyer for Dembele. Based on statistics, Dembele's appearance is far from expectations.

He has only scored 1 goal in 11 matches he has played. The goal was also obtained against the weak club Linares.

He scored 2 assists and only had four shots on target. Barca certainly need more than this.

Dembele's career

Dembele is a footballer of French and Senegalese descent. The player who was born on May 15, 1997 started his career with Rennes before finally joining Borussia Dortmund in 2016.

Dembele's career skyrocketed so quickly. In just 3 years, he has been ogled by Barcelona, ​​which has kept him until now.

Rumored to leave Manchester United and play in Brazil, this is Cristiano Ronaldo's answer

MDP Live - Cristiano Ronaldo has recently been rumored to be leaving Manchester United. The Portugal star has been linked with a move to Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2022.

Manchester United are in danger of losing Ronaldo if they fail to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season. The rumors escalated after a photo of Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro, Ronaldo's mother, and the vice-president of Brazilian club Flamengo surfaced online.

The photo made fans start speculating on the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo moving to Brazil. Speaking exclusively to ESPN, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner said:

"What I can say for sure is that Brazil is a sister country. Because of the relationship I have with my colleagues, because of the culture, the Brazilians who live in Portugal."

"My sister lives in Brazil, married a Brazilian. I took nutrition courses with Brazilians. It's a country I respect a lot, I know a lot about Brazil."

Not happy

Ronaldo decided to return to Manchester United from Juventus in 2021 after leaving Old Trafford 12 years ago. However, reports say CR7 is not happy with the current performance of the Red Devils.

Ronaldo is Manchester United's top scorer so far this season with 14 goals in 23 games in all competitions. He has improved in key moments for the Red Devils, but the squad's overall performance has left a lot to be desired.

Nothing impossible

Manchester United are seventh in the Premier League standings, six points behind West Ham United who occupy fourth place. MU also faces an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League next season.

If it fails, Ronaldo can leave again. Ronaldo did not rule out playing in Brazil. "No one knows. Nobody said I would return to Manchester United at the age of 36 and here I am," said CR7.

"Playing in Brazil? I don't know. Far from my mind. But, in football everything is possible, I don't know," concluded Ronaldo.

Just a phone call, Manchester United can hijack Antonio Conte from Tottenham Hotspur

MDP Live - Manchester United (MU) is said to be able to easily bring in Antonio Conte from Tottenham Hotspur. United are on a mission to find a permanent manager to replace Ralf Rangnick.

Reported by the Manchester Evening News, Conte is on the Manchester United management's target list. But the Italian man is not a top priority.

The Red Devils - MU's nickname - are more interested in bringing in Mauricio Pochettino (PSG), or Erik Ten Hag (Ajax Amsterdam). Currently, MU management is considering the most likely options.

However, it did not make Conte removed from the list. Moreover, the possibility of bringing him is quite open.

Yes, Conte is rumored to be willing to leave if he doesn't have Spurs management support. Conte wants management to meet its target of bringing in several players.

This is considered important if Conte wants Spurs to compete for trophies next season. "Daniel Levy (Spurs CEO) if he doesn't buy a top player, Conte will leave," said former Tottenham player Jamie O'Hara.

Immediately Considered

O'Hara said United only needed to contact Conte. After that, Conte will seriously consider leaving.

"Conte will leave. I tell you. If United call him tomorrow and say, 'we want you', he seriously thinks about leaving," he said.

Can't get a trophy

Conte thinks Spurs need new players after losing 3-0 to Chelsea in the League Cup semi-final. The defeat diminished Spurs' chances of ending a 14-year trophy drought.

The last time Spurs won a trophy was in the 2008 season. At that time, they won the League Cup under Juande Ramos.

Depends on Rangnick

On the other hand, the decision about the new manager of Manchester United is said to depend on the figure of Rangnick. Understandably, after becoming interim manager, Ragnick will serve as technical director of MU.

The German manager is rumored to have pocketed a suitable name to replace him.
