The captain of Manchester United and of England, Wayne Rooney believes that his teammates of Manchester United have been benefiting from the winning mentality of Louis van Gaal as the Dutch coach is only happy when his team wins and this determination has affected the rest of the players in the team who are now aiming to win every single match even if that is a friendly match or the finals of a big tournament, winning is everything that Louis van Gaal wants to achieve.

Ander Herrera, MarouaneFellaini and Wayne Rooney all managed to find the back of the net as they scored goals against Preston North End in their FA Cup match which concluded with a final scoreboard of 3-1.

This season the Premier League has been lit up by two former Barcelona players. These two players have been Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez.

Sir Alex Ferguson might not have enjoyed a great relationship with Wayne Rooney in the last couple of years of his stint at Manchester United, but, the Scot still rates the striker very highly.
According to Ferguson, Rooney is one of those players who can shake the back of the net from nowhere.
Rooney was believed to have got so fed up of Ferguson in 2013 that he had asked the Manchester United top brass to let him go to some other club.
West Bromwich Albion's biggest local rivals might be Wolverhampton Wanderers but few Baggies fans would claim to have a soft spot for Aston Villa either.
With the Hawthorns and Villa Park less than four miles apart, West Brom's fans have long looked to get one over on their big city neighbours but they have to go back to October 2011 to find their last win over the Villains (2-1 with goals scored by Jonas Olsson and Paul Scharner).

The speculation surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Real Marid shows no signs of abating anytime soon after it was claimed he is dissatisfied with life at the Bernabeu.
Former Real president Ramon Calderon, who signed Ronaldo for £80million from Manchester United in 2009, says the Ballon d’Or winner is considering his options after a frustrating couple of transfer windows and a poor start to the season that has left Real Madrid 17/10 in the Paddy Power football betting odds to win La Liga.
