Manchester United Dominance Coming To An End?

There is no club in the premiership with enough pedigree as Manchester United, but could we be seeing the end of their dominance in the English premiership.

Since the departure of their long time couch, Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United has been struggling to make it to the top four of the most prestigious league in the world, continuing with this season where it is likely they will come below fourth at the end of the season with their week to week performance.

Uefa Team Of 2015

UEFA named its Team Of The Year and as usual the two Spanish Giants Real Madrid and Barcelona dominate the starting XI - without any surprise no player from the Premier League has been included in the Starting XI for 2015 even Eden Hazard was left out;what will Zidane think now.

Alexis Sanchez was also no where to be seen even after his outstanding performance for Arsenal and winning the Copa America with Chile.Bizarre decision by UEFA to include James Rodriguez in place of Alexis.

Will this add to the already pilling pressure on Van Gaal to leave?
