If any set of fixtures describes the farce at Manchester United over the last three years then the Reds’ games against Bournemouth last season could sum it up.

Yet, with the Reds out of Europe’s premier competition after defeat, Louis van Gaal is under pressure as never before. Two competitions down, two to go, plus an unwelcome spell in the Europa League lies ahead; the season could yet turn into a calamity. Read More
