David de Gea, Paul Pogba, Michail Antonio

Manchester United will hope to forget the FA Cup disappointment and focus on the job ahead when they host West Ham United in Premier League 2019-20 on Wednesday. United were beaten 1-3 by Chelsea in their FA Cup semi-final meeting with goalkeeper David de Gea guilty of conceding the second and also allowing two more goals from the near post. Red Devils’ Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also came under the pump for tinkering with an in-form squad and leaving out Paul Pogba from the starting XI. West Ham, on the other, have saved their season with vital wins over Watford and Norwich City. Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Defends Under-Fire Custodian David de Gea.

The Hammers, coached by former Manchester United manager David Moyes, will be eyeing their first league double over United having already beaten them 2-0 in the reverse fixture in September. West Ham have also won two of their last three Premier League games against United although both of those wins have come at home. We Were Not the Best Before and We Are Not the Worst Now, Says Manchester United Midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

At Old Trafford, the Hammers are winless in their last 11 meetings and haven’t won here since 2007 and to record a win they must overcome an in-form United side, who are unbeaten in their last 12 league matches and have won four of their five games at home. As both teams clash in their penultimate league game, take a look at some key players for the Man United vs West Ham match.

David de Gea

The Spaniard has come under severe pressure after some high-profile mistakes in the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea. This is, however, not the first time that the United goalkeeper has made such mistakes. He has been prone to making silly errors for a couple of years now but at Wembley, on Sunday, it was catastrophic.

De Gea was to blame for all three goals United conceded in the semi-final. It will be a huge risk if Solskjaer still keeps him on goal against West Ham. But if he does, De Gea could be playing for his place against an in-form Michail Antonio.

Bruno Fernandes

The Portuguese looked tired against Chelsea at Wembley. But United still cannot risk resting him against West Ham in a do-or-die match. A win will still keep their Champions League destiny in their own hands and Solskjaer and United will hope Fernandes is at his best. The Portuguese has scored and assisted seven goals each since joining the club in January. He has also contributed towards 17 goals – most by any player in England since his debut in February.

Michail Antonio

The 30-year-old has been the most in-form striker since the Premier League restart in June. He has found the net seven times in his last five appearances, which includes a four-goal game against Norwich City. Antonio’s directness and physical play makes him a nightmare for defenders. He is West Ham’s leading goalscorer for this season with 9 goals and will be eager to reach double figures and lead the Hammers to a memorable win at Old Trafford.

Anthony Martial

The Frenchman has been reborn as a striker under Solsjkaer. Martial has scored 17 goals in the league and 22 times this season across all competitions. His connection with Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford has served United well at this stage of the season. Martial’s pace and dribbling ability, however, is the most devastating and he will want West Ham to get a taste of it.

Charles recently joined the team, and he writes for the Headline column of the website. He has done major in English, and a having a diploma in Journalism. He has worked for more than 1.5 years in a media house. Now, he joined our team as a contributor for covering the latest US headlines. He is smart both by him looks and nature. He is very good with everyone in the team.

Mumbai, August 8: There will be no dip in M.S. Dhoni’s form when the glitzy Indian Premier League (IPL) caravan touches base in the UAE, feels former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar. Manjrekar also said he had a chat with the iconic former India captain on the sidelines of current skipper Virat Kohli’s wedding, and the dashing wicketkeeper batsman had said as long as he is outrunning the fastest man in the Indian team, he will continue playing.

Dhoni will lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 13th edition of the cash-rich league which will be played in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah after it was postponed in March due to the COVID-19 crisis. The 39-year old has not been in action since the 2019 World Cup semi-final where India lost to New Zealand. MS Dhoni & Team Get Into ‘Habibi’ Mode As Chennai Super Kings Gear Up For IPL 2020 (See Pic).

Speaking on Star Sports’ show Cricket Connected, Manjrekar said: “I think he is going to be very good and one of the reasons that he is so successful and so consistent in the IPL as a batsman as opposed to international is that he knows that there are about four to five bowlers to handle.

“And there are some good ones and there are some not so good ones in the IPL. In international, you have got five quality bowlers, so he’s so good at picking out those guys and going after them.

“And with people like (Sachin) Tendulkar, Dhoni, these are champion cricketers. Once they are on the public stage, you will never see Dhoni ever on a public stage, like a cricket field, looking slightly unfit or unable to sprint or run.” Manjrekar said he caught up with Dhoni during Kohli’s wedding and the Ranchi man was oozing confidence.

“During Virat Kohli’s wedding, I had a little corner time with him and he said that as long as I am beating the fastest sprinter in the team, I am going to consider myself fit enough to be playing international cricket or playing high-level cricket.

“So, as a batter, with M.S. Dhoni in the IPL, I don’t see much difference. In fact, the conditions that we have, I keep saying, is just perfect for Dhoni, where it’s going to be about the mind and not just power hitting.”

Akhtar said that it was the first time he had done so on purpose and he apologised to the former Indian captain after that. “I think I had bowled a 8-9 over spell in Faisalabad.

“It was the first time in my life I had bowled a beamer purposely. I shouldn’t have done it. I regretted it a lot. He was playing so well and the wickets were so slow. However fast I was bowling, he kept on hitting. I think I got frustrated.” Shoaib Akhtar Reveals he Bowled Beamer Purposely to MS Dhoni During India Tour of Pakistan 2006.

Dhoni had scored his first-ever Test century in what was a run feast of a match that ended in a draw.
