As a club, Manchester United has a history and tradition of having faith in homegrown talent and giving youth a chance. This is the foundation upon which the club was built, started by Sir Matt Busby who won the First Division in 1956 with a squad the average age of just 22 years. The media dubbed his squad the 'Busby Babes' and that generation of players has laid the foundation for what the club believes in and stands for today.

Danish goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has risked facing the wrath of manager Louis van Gaal after he missed watching ‘El Classico’ with his teammates. The Dutch master tactician revealed that 17 of his 18 man squad to face Chelsea were seen watching the clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona but refused to name the missing player. However, English newspaper Daily Mail broke the news that the missing player was indeed Lindegaard who was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in January 2011.

With two home wins in their last two games at Old Trafford, Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United hopes to make it three home wins in-a-row as they welcome Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to the North West. Having dropped out of the top four due to their draw on Monday at West Brom, the Red Devils will be looking to seal three big points this Sunday in their toughest test of the season.

For over two decades the Old Trafford faithful has witnessed one man, Sir Alex Ferguson, running things in the dugout and replacing such an icon was always going to be tough. David Moyes was the‘Chosen One’ but failed miserably to keep Manchester United competitive and ended finishing 7th last season. It was shocking to the football world as the Red Devils failed to secure Champions League Football and faced a tough challenge of recruiting top players to the club.
