Manchester United have won their first Premier League game since the opening weekend of the season following their win over Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils had not won a game since beating Chelsea 4-0 in week one.

Marcus Rashford scored two goals during that Chelsea game and he was responsible for the only goal of the match as Manchester United returned to winning ways with the 1-0 win at home to Leicester City.

England international Rashford scored the winning goal from the penalty spot as early as the 8th minute after he was brought down by Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu.

David De Gea made some saves to have Manchester United a much needed win for the first time in four games.

Manchester United drew with Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers and also lost to Crystal Palace after the opening day win over Chelsea.

The win for Manchester United ended the unbeaten start to the season for Leicester City.

The Foxes had recorded eight points from the first four games of this Premier League season.

Leicester City started the season with two successive draws against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea before the consecutive victories over Sheffield United and South Coast outfit Bournemouth.

Crystal Palace Reject £25m Move For Liverpool Striker

Crystal Palace have rejected reports that they are set to sign young Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster in a £25m deal.

Earlier this week, Sky Sports had claimed that the Eagles have reached an agreement with Liverpool for the signing of the England u-21 attacker.

It was disclosed that an agreement to sign Rhian Brewster for £19m was made plus £6m in add-ons thus making it a total of £25m.

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has been vocal about the reported interest in Rhian Brewster as he denied it before asking Sky Sports to take down the report.

Rhian Brewster has been garnering a lot of interest from other Premier League teams this summer after the success of his loan spell at Welsh club Swansea City in the second tier of English football.

He scored 10 goals in 20 appearances for the Welsh club as he fired them into the Championship playoffs despite signing on loan in the middle of last season.

Rhian Brewster is back at Liverpool after his successful loan spell with Swansea City but he’s not guaranteed playing time due to the form of the front three and the recent signing of Diogo Jota.

Sheffield United, West Brom and Aston Villa have shown interest in him in recent weeks.

Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster is set to join Premier League side Crystal Palace according to reports from popular English newspaper The Sun.

It was revealed that the Reds want to clear out the fringe players in their squad and young Reds attacker Rhian Brewster could be the first to leave the club in the bid to sell the aforementioned set of players.

Crystal Palace want to sign Rhian Brewster and Liverpool are keen to insert a buyback clause and a sell-on clause into the deal.

Apart from Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and Premier League newcomers West Bromwich Albion are also in the running to sign Brewster.

Rhian Brewster impressed during his loan spell at Swansea City at the end of last season after he scored 10 goals to fire the Welsh club to the Championship playoffs.

The England u-21 international could not prevent Swansea City from losing to Brentford in the semi-finals.

Apart from Rhian Brewster, Liverpool also want to sell other fringe players like Divock Origi, Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic.

Origi is surplus to requirements after the £45m arrival of Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.

Harry Wilson spent last season at Bournemouth on loan, while Marko Grujic was at German Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin on loan last season.

Gary Neville

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has urged the club to strengthen a key position in the team on the back of the humiliating defeat suffered at the hands of Crystal Palace.

Gary Neville talked about Manchester United and what they need to do in the transfer window on Sky Sports at the weekend.

The former Red Devils skipper was hugely disappointed as Crystal Palace claimed a second successive away victory at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

He said that Manchester United need to sign a new centre back during this transfer window if they are to achieve their targets for this season.

Gary Neville urged the club to sign a new centre back to partner skipper Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence.

His defensive partner Victor Lindelof was culpable for the three goals scored by Crystal Palace in what was the opening game of the season for Manchester United.

Crystal Palace had beaten Manchester United 2-1 at the same venue and they repeated the same outcome of an away win in week two of this season’s Premier League campaign.

Former Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha was the star of the game as he netted two second-half goals to give Palace a 3-1 win over their hosts.

Fellow winger Andros Townsend had given Palace an early lead before Zaha added a second goal from the penalty spot in the second half.

New Manchester United signing Donny Van De Beek pulled one back to give his team a lifeline before Zaha sealed the points some minutes later.

English Premier League club, Arsenal are also part of the suitors, interested in the signature of QPR star Eberechi Eze, alongside others.

QPR are expecting to part ways with the Nigerian international this summer window having learned a lot of interest in the player from English Premier League sides.

The latest report now reveals that Crystal Palace have gone ahead of the North London outfit with a £16m bid but it was rejected with the Hoops hoping to get a better deal for the player.

The Eagles are keen to strengthen their attack ahead of next season and see Eze as a perfect option after seeing him excel in the Championship this season.

However, the development remains a major hope for the Gunners who are also interested in the signature of Eberechi Eze and it gives the club more time to prepare a bid for the quality forward.

It is now unclear if the Gunners value Eberechi Eze more than £16 million and will be ready to invest such an amount for his signature because of the less need for attackers in the team.

With Arsenal hoping to keep Gabon international striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the club for more seasons, there is no way they will seek to invest in another striker.

Sunday, January 26

Europa League holders Chelsea have reportedly made an enquiry for one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League over the last two seasons.

Crystal Palace shot-stopper Vicente Guaita signed for the Eagles at the start of the last campaign following his transfer from Spanish La Liga side Getafe and he has proven to be one of the best goalkeepers in the English top flight.

The 33-year-old goalkeeper is a target for both Manchester City and Chelsea as reported by Football London.

The interest of Chelsea in Vicente Guaita was first reported by Spanish newspaper AS who disclosed that the Spanish shot-stopper has showed his quality in the Premier League in the last 18 months and that has attracted the Blues to his signing.

Vicente Guaita is the second goalkeeper to be linked with Chelsea in the past few days after England and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

The links to Premier League goalkeepers have cast doubt on the future of Kepa Arrizabalaga at Chelsea following his series of errors at the club this season.

Kepa Arrizabalaga became the most expensive goalkeeper in history after Chelsea splashed over £71m on his transfer from Athletic Bilbao at the start of the last campaign.

The recent resurgence of Arsenal under new manager Mikel Arteta will be tested when the Gunners take a short trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace in the London Derby for the early game on Saturday in the Premier League.

Arsenal have won their last two games in all competitions as Mikel Arteta starts to turn the fortunes of the Gunners around after a difficult first half of the season.

The Gunners won back-to-back games for the first time in three months and they have not won two games in a row in the Premier League in six months.

Since the opening two league fixtures against Newcastle United and Burnley, Arsenal are yet to repeat the feat as they have struggled under both Unai Emery and Freddie Ljungberg who came in as a caretaker manager shortly after former Sevilla and Valencia manager Unai Emery was sacked.

The Gunners could make it two league wins in a row against Crystal Palace whom they have not beaten in three Premier League meetings since the 4-1 win at home in January 2018.

Crystal Palace are injury hit as manager Roy Hodgson could be without 12 players.

According to Squawka, Arsenal will be forced to a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace.

EPL: Arsenal Receives Huge Boost Ahead Of Crystal Palace Game

Crystal Palace won’t be able to field anything close to their best XI when they welcome fellow London side Arsenal to Selhurst Park for their second Premier League meeting of the current season.

The two teams shared four goals in the first league meeting at the Emirates Stadium in October as Crystal Palace came from two goals down to secure a point.

According to Crystal Palace manager, his team is down to the barebones and he needs help from the club bosses in terms of new players.

It doesn’t seem like help will come in form of big-money signings and the former Switzerland national team manager has told Crystal Palace officials to concentrate on loan signings or free transfer signings.

After the FA Cup loss to Derby County of the English Championship, Roy Hodgson told reporters that Max Meyer and Jairo Riedewald have joined the lengthy injury list at the club.

He also lost midfielder Luka Milivojevic to suspension after that game as a result of the red card given to him during the Derby County game which Crystal Palace lost 1-0 thus prompting the Rams to progress into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Crystal Palace have appealed the red card given to Luka Milivojevic who has always been a thorn in Arsenal’s flesh with five goals in the last six games against the Gunners.

Man Utd Convinced, Finally Show Interest To Sign £90m-rated Player

Wilfried Zaha

Manchester United are still interested in signing Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha according to journalist Ian McGarry who told Reach plc’s Transfer Window Podcast.

According to him, the Red Devils have an interest in their former player Zaha who didn’t have the best of careers at Old Trafford.

He joined Manchester United from Crystal Palace as a young and raw winger in the summer of 2013 months after his transfer had been finalized.

His transfer was the last one conducted under the managerial reign of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Crystal Palace and Manchester United agreed a £15m deal for him in January 2013 but the England-born Ivorian international player didn’t live up to the hype that came with his transfer to Old Trafford.

He was then sent on loan to current Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Cardiff City before the Ivorian player secured another loan deal to boyhood club Crystal Palace.

Zaha impressed during that loan spell at Palace and that prompted the Eagles to re-sign him permanently.

He had been their main man at Crystal Palace since returning to the South London club permanently in 2015.

Wilfried Zaha is presently rated at £90m by Crystal Palace and Manchester United won’t have any problems with that transfer fee as long as they have reached the decision to sign him.

The likes of Arsenal and Everton had issues with his valuation as they both failed to pursue Zaha away from Crystal Palace mainly due to the high transfer fee slapped on him by Eagles chairman Steve Parish.
