Arsenal and Man Utd in title race showdown

Adjust Comment Print

Arsene Wenger has predicted that Jose Mourinho's Manchester United will attack Arsenal on Saturday rather than simply "park the bus" and is confident that Mesut Ozil will not be affected by the interest in him from his former manager.

"United aren't as good as Spurs and they are, at the back, very, very poor". Arsenal is now in the 4th position in the Premier League with 28 points, 12 behind the league leaders Manchester City.

"I've played three games in a row".

First half goals from Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp sandwiched a Ryan Giggs strike to give Arsenal a 2-1 half time lead, despite United thudding the Arsenal bar through Wayne Rooney. They won the previous two H2H duels in London, scoring five and conceding none in return, so the Red Devils will have a lot of work to do to escape Emirates undefeated on Saturday. Most alarmingly, in those seven matches United have managed just one goal.

"We won the title in Manchester" is a chant still sung to this day by Arsenal fans, who saw their team famously take the Premier League title from Manchester United at Old Trafford, when keeper Fabian Barthez could only parry a Freddie Ljungberg shot into the path of Arsenal's enigmatic French winger Sylvain Wiltord, who put the ball away, cuing scenes of delirium amongst the travelling Arsenal faithful. Man United is a strong team and I expect us just to cope with the problems they will give us. Phil Jones is doubtful to play with a hamstring injury, so in case he is not ready to perform, the "Special One" could go with Lindelof, Smalling, and Rojo at the back again.

One player who could get a chance to impress Jose Mourinho with Matic set to miss the game is Ander Herrera, with the player the key cog in the midfield last season, only to see his place in the side diminished after the Chelsea man arrived.
