Manchester United v Arsenal Premier League

Premier League Manchester United v Arsenal

Great test for the team of José Mourinho who comes to this game after a sequence of three games without winning the championship, ie in the last four only won – with a goal in the last minute – Young Boys, in a triumph that earned the qualification for the knockout round of the Champions,

in a season that has had tremendous excitement around Manchester United, who finishes here in 8th place in the Premier table, with only 22 points in 14 games, eight of which are now well into the millions.

In the last round, United conceded a 2-2 draw in their trip to Southampton in a game that echoed again many criticisms of how the Portuguese coach has managed the way the team performs on the pitch.

There have even been some public news in the last hours that give an account of the alleged new chat between Mourinho and Pogba, who will have openly criticized his coach’s options.

Victor Lindelof, Alexis Sánchez and Ashley Young are in doubt as Romelu Lukaku, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia are all in doubt.

Arsenal have evolved not only in terms of football produced, but above all in terms of mentality, this if we compare with the previous season with Wenger and these first few months with Émery in charge.
After 14 matches, the Gunners are fourth in the standings with 30 points from Tottenham and have lost only twice in this tournament, curiously in the first two matches against Manchester City at home and Chelsea out.

In a big way, Arsenal come to this game after three consecutive wins against Bournemouth (2-1), Vorskla Polava (3-0) and Tottenham (4-2).

They are confirmed as casualties Konstatinos Mavropanos, Danny Welbeck, Nacho Monreal and Granit Xhaka, while Mesut Özil, Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscileny are in doubt.

There are many differences in quality and soul between Manchester United and this Arsenal.

Eternal classic full of history in England, I think this will be a good moment for the Gunners have achieved something they have not achieved in the last direct duels against the red devils: win.

Unai Émery’s team is very motivated after the excellent turnaround against Tottenham in the London derby of the last round, Mourinho is under a lot of pressure after losing again points for the championship, following several games where the team’s display level has been harshly criticized by local media.

With several important pieces in doubt, I think it will be even more help for Arsenal to add a good result, to remain undefeated if we ignore the first two rounds, where the London team was still assimilating processes and faced the already defunct champion and a Chelsea also under construction, but to play at home and that was and has been much stronger than this United. If José Mourinho manages to win this game, it will be a great surprise for me, which I believe until he loses, in an Old Trafford stadium that should not frighten an Arsenal player who comes very strong and motivated.
