#OnThisDay 22/09/07: #ManchesterUnited welcomed #Chelsea to #OldTrafford on match-day 7 of the 2007-08 #PremierLeague season!
Both team's could not have had farther contrasting fortunes heading into this clash, despite both sitting on 11 points after 6 games. #CFC had just sensationally sacked Jose #Mourinho following their 1-1 draw with Rosenborg in the Champions League just 5 days earlier; a game which was their 3rd without victory in a row in all competitions. #MUFC on the other hand, were on a 4 match winning run having navigated a difficult start to the camapaign, and knew with a win over the arch rivals, they could firmly entrench themselves into the top 4.
Avram Grant, the man deputising as #TheBlues head coach would see his side relegated to 10 men after just 32 minutes when Jon Obi #Mikel was given a straight red card! Their misery would compound further on the stroke of half-time as Carlos #Tevez scored his first goal for #ManUtd to make it 1-0 to the home side! A late Louis #Saha penalty would seal a 2-0 win for the defending #PL champions, as they ended the weekend in 3rd place following that impressive win!

El equipo de The Line Breaker presenta el octavo número de la Revista The Lines. Una edición que marcará una nueva era para el proyecto.

Entrevistas con @judithobaya, la primera mujer en atravesar el desierto del Sahara; Gustavo Ferrín, el uruguayo que comandó a la selección de Angola; y @nlarcamon el entrenador argentino que viene pisando fuerte en el fútbol chileno. Además, un especial a grandes “8” que nos deleitaron hasta hace muy poco, una mirada a la crisis social que afecta al deporte venezolano y un cuento futurista que, por muy poco, pudo ser realidad.

Thoughts on @alexis_officia1 dissapointing form? We all know what he can do and bring to a team but he just isn't doing it for Man Utd atm. Imo i think he tries to force things way too much. Martial deserves to play over him at the moment but Jose thinks differently, i think Alexis should be an impact player off from the bench for a few games, at least till he restores some faith by putting in some good performances.
🇧🇷: Quando tudo ia bem, o Manchester United tropeçou novamente em casa contra o Wolverhampton. O resultado da partida foi um 1-1 e os gols foram marcados por Fred (MUN) e João Moutinho (WOL). Essa temporada do Manchester United vai sacramentar a queda de Mourinho?
🇬🇧/🇺🇸: When the thing was well, Manchester United drew against Wolverhampton. The score of the match was 1-1 and the goals were scored by Fred (MUN) and João Moutinho (WOL). This season, will be the last season of Mourinho at the Old Trafford?
🇪🇸: Cuando todo iba bien, el Manchester United perdió puntos valiosos en casa ante el Wolverhampton. El resultado del partido fue 1-1 y los goles fueron hechos por Fred (MUN) y João Moutinho (WOL). ¿Esta temporada, será la última de Mourinho en Old Trafford?
Well, let's about this game. Obviously most of you are angry, disappointed and some might say that a point was what we deserved. Well my thoughts on the game was, we played a very good Wolves side and I don't know how exactly we scored that first goal because Wolves were dominating when we scored the goal. And the situation was the same when they scored the equaliser - we were dominating the game at that point and Pogba (I think) was caught in possession and they scored. However the last 10 minutes, it really did excite me and the problem was there were too many shots outside the 25 yard box. We have to win this type of games to avoid falling out of the title race. Anyways, Luke Shaw, Pogba, De Gea, Fellaini and Smalling played good. Imo, their goal wouldn't have been scored if Fellaini stayed back and was in the same position he was playing in, in the first half. I think we went a bit more direct, getting the long balls to Fellaini and lukaku upfront which left the defence exposed. I would also like to highlight how Shaw kept Costa silent until that one goal and kept Traore from causing us any trouble when he came on, because when he gets running it's very hard to stop him especially when you're legs are a bit tired. Anyways, that's it from me and what are your thoughts on the game?❤
Jose Mourinho has warned fans not to get carried away with their unbeaten run.
United are unbeaten in four games with three wins and draw and Mourinho said: "For sure, a difficult season. I don't change that because we won two matches in the Premier League. "You see the level of the teams. You see the Liverpool squad, City squad, Chelsea squad, Tottenham squad, Arsenal improving. It's going to be difficult. "I'm not saying we are going to have more points than last season because last season we collected a very acceptable level of points. "I think we are going to be a better team. We are going to play better than we did, but I think it's going to be a very difficult season. I am optimistic, but a difficult season, yes." [Source: triballfootball.com]

Alexis Sánchez não vive boa fase no Manchester United. Pela Premier League, não marca desde 31 de Março de 2018, contra o Swansea chegando a essa marca de 831 minutos. Em todas as competições, são 759 minutos, já que ele marcou em 21 de Abril de 2018, contra o Tottenham pela FA Cup. Desde a última vez que Alexis Sanchez marcou, essas coisas de impacto aconteceram no mundo do futebol: 🏆Real Madrid foi campeão da Champions League pela 3º vez seguida ➡CR7 e Zidane saíram do Real Madrid 🏆 França foi campeã Mundial ➡Buffon saiu da Juventus
Mourinho: “Kami tidak cukup kuat dalam bertahan kami membiarkan mereka bermain, kami tidak menekan dengan cara yang intens, kami memberi mereka terlalu banyak waktu.
Mourinho :" Kami tidak kreatif atau cukup dinamis di sepertiga terakhir. Banyak pemain yang tidak tajam
