    WHEN IN ROME

    Juventus are eyeing a shock free transfer for ex-Manchester United flop Henrikh Mkhitaryan, according to reports.

    The Roma ace has regained the form that saw him earn a switch to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund in 2016.

    Mkhitaryan, 32, joined the Italian side in August last year from Arsenal and has been a key figure as Roma push for a Champions League spot.

    He has scored nine and assisted eight in 20 Serie A appearances with his side sitting fourth in the league.

    His contract expires at the end of the season and reports in Italy claim their rivals are ready to take advantage.

    According to Calciomercato, Juventus are prepared to offer him a surprise deal if contract negotiations hit the rocks.

    Roma and Mkhitaryan are locked in talks but Juve have close links with his agent, Mino Raiola.

    LATE SERG

    Manchester United have recalled goalkeeper Sergio Romero back into their Premier League squad to add further pressure on David De Gea.

    The Argentina international, 33, was linked with a move away from Old Trafford during the January transfer window after falling down the pecking order.

    The long-term deputy to De Gea was replaced by Dean Henderson as the club’s No2 and wanted to leave for first-team football.

    His contract with the Red Devils expires in the summer but he did not plan on sitting around with no chance of a game.

    A host of MLS clubs are keen on the ace, with the American transfer window still open, but so far a move has failed to materialise.

    And after being allowed home to South America to spend time with his loved ones, he is now back at United training alongside both De Gea and Henderson.

    OL DECIDE

    David De Gea has been warned his place is not safe at Manchester United following his latest blunders.

    The Spaniard was blamed for two of Everton's goals on Saturday as they twice came from behind to earn a 3-3 draw at Old Trafford.

    Solskjaer is adamant past reputations count for little with him as he warned the stopper:“Every player has to earn his place. We’re a squad with competition and that applies to every single one in the team.”

    Dean Henderson, 23, is chomping at the bit for regular starts following his two-year successful stint at Sheffield United.

    PRICE OF SUCCESS

    Manchester United supporters flooded social media and demanded new signings after Sunday night's Super Bowl.

    Red Devils fans watched their team owners, the Glazer family, hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy aloft after Tampa Bay Buccaneers' win.

    The Buccaneers dominated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 to win the Super Bowl in their home Raymond James Stadium.

    Their title run was sparked by signing Tom Brady last summer and an incredible defensive performance on Sunday.

    And the irony of Tampa Bay's strong defence was not lost on Man Utd fans.

    A tweet read: "The Buccaneers defence was fairly tidy, a CB loan deal until the end of the season for Man Utd. Glazer fam you listening? We can really use a CB."

    MORNING, UNITED FANS

    Bruno Fernandes claims defensive blunders are threatening United's title tilt – while Jamie Carragher believes they have "almost bottled it".

    Key man Fernandes blasted it "can't be possible" United let Everton recover from 2-0 and 3-2 down for a draw with the last kick of the game.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are now five points off neighbours City, after amassing just five points in their last five matches.

    And Fernandes said: “We are making many mistakes in the last few games. 

    "We can’t keep conceding more goals like that. We have to be more focused, we need to have the same desire to score and to defend our goal.

    “Every time we make goals and score goals, we have to be the same way to not concede — and I think we need to learn from this."

    Meanwhile, Sky Sports pundit Carragher said: “I think Man United have been so excited they’re there and have almost talked themselves out of it with the last few results.

    “I don’t think there’s much belief there.”

    But Solskkjaer has backed under-fire keeper David Gea, who some blamed for two Everton goals.

    The Norwegian told Sky: “I wouldn’t blame anyone on the goals but we know we could have done better as a team on all of them."

    FERNANDES BLASTS 'MANY MISTAKES'

    Bruno Fernandes tore into his Manchester United team-mates for blunders that are costing them a title tilt.

    United twice surrendered the lead to let in an injury-time leveller in Saturday’s 3-3 home draw with Everton.

    They are now five points behind Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

    Fernandes said: “We are making many mistakes in the last few games. We can’t keep conceding more goals like that. We have to be more focused, we need to have the same desire to score and to defend our goal.

    “Every time we make goals and score goals, we have to be the same way to not concede — and I think we need to learn from this.

    “It already happened a lot of times, so it is more than a bit disappointing.

    “We can talk about everything that is going on — but it is also about learning and making it better.”

    ‘POWDER-PUFF’ GUNNERS

    Rio Ferdinand blasted Arsenal’s “powder-puff” 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa.

    Ollie Watkins punished poor defending inside 74 seconds, with Mikel Arteta claiming his Gunners’ side dominated but failed in both boxes.

    And Manchester United legend Ferdy told BT Sport: “They started off on the worst possible footing, mistake, lack of concentration and they definitely didn’t recover for the rest of the first half.

    “Second half they were much improved but without that cutting edge. 

    “They didn’t have that cutting edge. The attacking players that have been doing really well for them in recent weeks… they just didn’t turn up.”

    NO JOKE TO DRINK COKE

    Ryan Giggs has admitted he laid into Cristiano Ronaldo for drinking Coke at breakfast.

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previously claimed angry Giggs pinned a young Ronaldo up against the wall over the incident.

    When asked if the now Juventus star’s conduct was not acceptable, the Wales manager replied: “Maybe. I don’t know if I pinned him.

    “I might have told him, ‘We don’t do this’ and then he went and scored a hat-trick! ‘I drink what I want, Giggsy!’”

    UTD LABELLED TITLE 'BOTTLERS'

    United have 'bottled' the fight to win the Premier League title, according to Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher.

    The Red Devils' hopes of winning the Prem for the first time n eight years suffered a huge blow as Everton fought back to snatch a 3-3 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday

    Dominic Calvert-Lewin's stoppage-time equaliser saw United miss the opportunity to go level on points with table-toppers Manchester City, who extended their lead at the summit of the table on Sunday with a 4-1 win over Liverpool.

    And Carragher believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's troops were overcome by the magnitude of the opportunity.

    He told Sky Sports: "I think Man United in the last few weeks have almost bottled it, they’ve got there and have been so excited they’re there and have almost talked themselves out of it with the last few results they’ve had.

    "I don’t think there’s much belief there."

    KEANE RAP FOR LIVERPOOL

    United legend stuck the boot into Liverpool after their 4-1 home loss to leaders Manchester City and sneered: "They have been bad champions."

    Keane slammed the mentality of Jurgen Klopp’s players and the stream of excuses which have come from their manager.

    Keane, working as a Sky Sports pundit, said: “They’re making a lot of excuses.

    "They’ve been bad champions and I don’t just mean this game.

    “There’s a way to get beat. They all believed their own hype over the last year.

    “The players weren't talking about doing it again and now they’re talking all of a sudden about being in the top four.”

    NO NEED FOR GEA CHANGE

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defended David de Gea after the Manchester United keeper came in for criticism for his mistakes against Everton.

    He told Sky Sports: “I wouldn’t blame anyone on the goals but we know we could have done better as a team on all of them.

    “We played some good football in the second half but conceded three goals from three shots on target. When you do that it is disappointing.

    “We reacted well after their two goals but then why was there four minutes added in, we had to get the ball in the corner and see it out. Poor goals to concede.”

    Yet the facts remain that De Gea’s howler against Everton was his fourth error leading to a goal since August 2019.

    RING-MOAN

    Gary Neville has mocked Jamie Carragher after the Liverpool legend squirmed live on air when Alisson made a huge blunder in their defeat to Manchester City.

    Speaking about the hilarious moan by his colleague, Neville said: "You may have heard Carragher yelp, and he's on his knees next to me here!

    "That noise will be my ringtone for the next week. Can you do it again?"

    IRON BRU

    Bruno Fernandes has vowed Manchester United won't 'surrender' in their bid to win the Premier League title following their setback against Everton.

    A dejected Fernandes tweeted: "Gutted with the result… we’re very disappointed but we’ll never surrender!"

    The Portuguese midfielder – who has been United's star man since joining the club in January 2019 – insists he and his team-mates will 'learn' from their latest setback.

    He added: "Learn, work harder and improve!"

    ZLAT'S THAT

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic reached 500 club goals in just the resounding way you would expect of such a legend.

    The Swede's two strikes were as nifty as ever at the age of 39 as he put AC Milan back on top of the Italian top-flight with his sixth Serie A double this season in a 4-0 win over bottom side Crotone.

    The former Manchester United, Barcelona and PSG striker has won 11 domestic titles in Europe, not including two Juventus had erased for the Clciopoli match-fixing scandal.

    ICYMI

    Aston Villa are reportedly set to offer Jack Grealish a new deal to keep him at the club beyond the summer.

    The 25-year-old only penned a new contract last year, but 90min claim the Villans are keen to offer his fresh terms.

    They state that they want to make Grealish one of the highest paid English players in the Premier League.

    A contract in the region of £200,000-a-week is said to be on the cards.

    Both Arsenal and Man Utd have been linked with a possible move for the Three Lions international.

    STORM BRU-ING

    Bruno Fernandes has blasted Manchester United's defending and claimed Everton's 3-3 comeback draw 'can't be possible'.

    He told Premier League Productions: "We are conceding goals every game, we are conceding goals a lot of times and at home we concede too many goals.

    "Too many bad results at home and this can’t be possible.

    "I think we have to win this game after being 2-0 up.

    "It doesn’t matter how. You concede two goals and you come again and you score again.

    "It’s impossible to concede another goal again, from a free-kick in the half of the pitch, we concede a goal from there and the way we concede."

    DEVILS DOWNED

    Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has stated Manchester United have 'bottled it' in their Premier League title chase.

    The Sky Sports pundit said: "I think Man Utd have bottled it now they've got there, they've almost talked themselves out of it."

    Before adding: "Listening to the comments of the Manchester United manager… Man Utd just seem happy to be involved – I cannot believe it.

    " It's a unique season; Liverpool have no centre-backs, City have had no strikers and [Kevin] De Bruyne has been out.

    "We were saying last season that City were off the boil; they're only three points better off so it shows they're still not the City of two, three years ago."

    ABOUT TIME

    Man Utd legend Roy Keane has called on Jurgen Klopp to stop making excuses for their struggles this season.

    "What we don't want to hear from Liverpool is excuses. I think there's been plenty of excuses coming out from Liverpool over the last few weeks. 'City have had extra break', 'fixture pile-up'.

    "There've been plenty of excuses coming from the manager.

    "Listen we've said from day one they've had injury problems of course that have affected them. But we could say that without Man City.

    "Liverpool have done brilliantly the last few years. They need a response today. Football always gives you an opportunity to respond.

    "Whatever about league titles, they need to turn up today. And as I said, no more excuses."

    TOP GEA

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defended David de Gea after the Manchester United keeper came in for criticism for his mistakes against Everton.

    "We reacted well after their two goals but then why was there four minutes added in, we had to get the ball in the corner and see it out. Poor goals to concede."

    Yet the facts remain that De Gea's howler against Everton was his fourth error leading to a goal since August 2019.

    The former Atletico Madrid star has now made the third most amount of mistakes in that time, only behind Jordan Pickford and Martin Dubravka

    TAKE ZLAT

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to escape punishment for alleged racist comments he made to Romelu Lukaku in last month’s Milan Derby.

    The AC Milan hitman was involved in a heated clash with his former Manchester United team-mate during the Coppa Italia quarter-final tie.

    A fired-up Ibrahimovic called his Inter counterpart a ‘little donkey’ and urged him to ‘call your mother and do your voodoo s**t’.

    But according to Football Italia, the Swede has explained to the FIGC (the Italian Football Federation) that his comments were in reference to a particular story about the Inter forward.

    In January 2018, Everton’s majority shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, claimed Lukaku opted against signing a new deal at Goodison Park because of voodoo – a religion practiced in west Africa in other parts of the world.

    IRN BRU

    Bruno Fernandes believes the players have themselves to blame after they drew to Everton late on as Dominic Calvert-Lewin cancelled out Scott McTominay's header.

    The Portuguese playmaker told MUTV: "I wish we had played a little bit worse in the second-half and maybe don’t concede the goals and score more.

    For me, it doesn’t matter how we play, we have to win the games, we have to understand the moments.

    "In the second half when we scored the third goal we have to understand that we have to not give away nothing, not to give them chances and to keep trying to score and press them.

    “We don’t do that and unfortunately we concede the goal in the last few seconds.”
