Match Preview: Man Utd vs. Arsenal
For those of you who watched both Arsenal's incredible performance against Spurs and Man Utd's turgid 2-2 draw at home to Southampton, all evidence would suggest that this should be a comfortable game for the Gunners. But delve a little deeper and you can see that Man Utd always seem to have the edge on Arsenal at Old Trafford.
The last time the Gunners were able to beat Man Utd away was a 1-0 win in September 2006. Even during the Moyes years Arsenal seemed to falter under the Old Trafford lights. They are currently undefeated at home against Arsenal in 14 of their last 15 matches. Then you look at Mourinho's record against Arsenal the Portuguese has only lost 2 out of his 19 matches against them.
On current form though Arsenal will head into this match the more confident team. They were impressive in their 4-2 win over spurs and showed some of the character that was lacking under Wenger.
Man Utd are in complete disarray at the back with Lindelöf definitely sidelined with Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling are both carrying knocks. Phil Jones could also be out for this match whilst Marcos Rojo is just getting back to match fitness. Shaw, Valencia and Darmian are doubts and Ashley Young is suspended.
Apparently Mourinho was incredibly displeased with Pogba's performance against Southampton though it's believed that the Frenchman will be dropped for this game.
Xhaka is suspended for this match after picking up his fifth booking against Spurs. Özil will likely miss this match due to back issues.
The bookies have Man Utd as the slight favourites but it's a really close one to call. History would suggest that Man Utd won't be beaten by Arsenal at home but current form and recent performances suggest that Arsenal have the best chance in a long time to beat Man Utd at Old Trafford.
