Very interesting news tonight from England where Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward (no, not Ed Wood) has said that “We’ve seen amazing growth in India, China is still a massive opportunity but the US is becoming the No1 opportunity for us.”

The news comes hot on the heels that Manchester United is opening a US-based office in New York City. United sees the United States as a ripe market based on a few factors: 1) The opportunity to sign lucrative sponsorship deals with big spending US companies, 2) the sudden rise in popularity of the sport in America, 3) lockouts in national sports in the United States are making soccer more popular from the grassroots to the mainstream TV ratings.

Here are tonight’s Premier League news headlines:
