Dave saves, RVP skill, United passing & more GIFs from the Fulham game

Manchester United opened up a 9 point lead at the top of the Premier League thanks to a hard fought victory versus Fulham at Craven Cottage (and City drawing with Liverpool).
United recalled Antonio Valencia and Nani to the wings and Thomas Cleverley came back into midfield to partner Michael Carrick. Nemanja Vidic was rested with the game v Everton in mind (expecting a an aerial battle).

The game got off to a frantic start, both teams forcing good saves from the respective keepers as well striking the woodwork. The game was decided with just over 10 minutes to go, Wayne Rooney who was a threat all game calmly finding the corner as he strode into the Fulham area.
The Reds withstood the late Fulham pressure to put themselves in a brilliant position with 13 games to go.

There was lots of quality on show, here are my Top GIFs…

Brilliant RVP Skill, Rooney Pass & more GIFs from the Southampton game

Manchester United took full advantage of rival Citys’ dropped points with a hard working 3 points against a spirited and lively Southampton side.

United made their customary start it woul seem this season by allowing the opposition a 1 goal lead, even handing it to them on a plate as a poor back pass allowed the Saints to score within 2 minutes. The Reds didn’t waste much time to level thanks to a superb pass from Shinji Kagawa and a calm  Rooney finish. Rooney scored again thanks to a brilliant assist by Patrice Evra and went into the 2nd half looking to kill off the game. The 3rd goal never came and Southampton to their full credit pushed for an equaliser that United managed to avoid.

“Champions win games when playing badly” Yup, it was one of those.

Still, there were plenty of United highlights, here are my GIFs of the game…

[GIFS] Zaha’s best goals and stunning assists for Palace this season

Manchester United today confirmed the signing of Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace. The deal is expected to reach £15-20m including add ons and the 20 year old England winger will join the club in July 2013, spending the remainder of the season at the Championship Side.

So how good is Wilfried Zaha?
Having only seen him play once, in Palace’s shock win at Old Trafford in the League Cup and a handful of highlights videos, I’m not best placed to say.

I have however put together this collection of his goals and a couple of assists for Palace this season. They certainly wet the appetite of the kind of player he is and how much potential he has to light up Old Trafford next season.

Is David de Gea that bad? His best GIF moments of the season so far…

With talk all over the media and twitter about David De Gea and his Manchester United future, I thought I would share some of the moments of brilliance he has produced this season.

I’m not saying he is perfect, and at 22 years old still has a lot to learn but for me, there has been improvement in his weaker areas this season as well as his continued excellence at shot stopping and his distribution from feet.

Here are some of his best moments so far this season…
