Today, Jose Mourinho visits the Emirates with his Red Devils aiming to grab at least a point from Arsenal.
Wenger’s Gunners basking from a 5-0 bashing of Huddersfield on Wednesday will hope to continue their impressive home run with another win over Manchester United.
The 5-0 victory came at the expense of a groin injury to Lacazette who opened scoring early in the game. Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil were the other goal scorers.
Olivier Giroud scored twice from the bench in the 5-0 routing of Huddersfield and could lead the line today against the Red Devils. In Lacazette’s absence, Wenger will opt for Giroud or Welbeck to lead the attack. Don’t be surprised to see Iwobi in the mix with Sanchez the false 9.
It used to be a tale of “Wenger’s inability to get a win over Morinho” that was laid to rest last season. Will Wenger consolidate with another win today?
Expect United to sit back and look for the counter, limiting passes to Meaut Ozil and crowding him. Mesut the magician can find a pin in a haystack and would need to be at his best to bamboozle the Red Devils.
Arsenal must win this game to secure top four spot and ignite any hope of finishing above 4th. Victory against Manchester United is always a good tale to tell.
Can the trio of Koscienly, Mustafi and Monreal keep another clean sheet and secure another victory? Bellerin will need to be more clinical in the final third. Same is said of Kolasinac who could have gotten a goal for himself on Wednesday.
A 13th consecutive home win will not be bad. We can. Watch out for Aaron Ramsey.
