Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United preview

It has been a miserable few days for Manchester United after crashing out of the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich and being knocked off the top of the table by Chelsea last weekend. With Chelsea in the FA Cup and Arsenal having a rest ahead of their trip to Spurs next Wednesday, United have the chance to return to the top of the Premier League.

The Rooney Bayern comeback fairytale

WARNING: There are reports appearing in a number of newspapers, including usually highly respected ones, which had they been published a few days earlier would have certainly been regarded as nothing more than April Fools jokes. Please, DO NOT BELIEVE any stories which suggest that Manchester United’s super striker Wayne Rooney may make a miraculous comeback in Wednesday night’s Champions League quarter final return leg against Bayern Munich.

Midfield partners agree that experience is the key

In form midfielder Darren Fletcher believes that the experience of Manchester United’s older players will guarantee them the Premier League crown again this season – and one of those veterans completely agrees. 35 year old Paul Scholes has no doubt that the champions can win all their remaining seven games to ensure that the title remains at Old Trafford.
