There has probably not been a better time for Arsenal to be heading into a match against Manchester United and needing a positive result, because as much as Arsenal may have a few key players on the injury list and are struggling for form and consistency, we are in a much better position than our next opponents.
The only thing Man United have going for them ahead of their trip to the Emirates is that they managed to scrape a win against Crystal Palace in their last Premier League game. But their injury list continues to grow and put Louis van Gaal under serious pressure, as the graphic below reveals.
And that is not the end of their problems by any means, because some of the players that are fit to play, such as our former captain Robin van Persie and Juan Mata are struggling for form and confidence. Then you have rumours in the press that their star man Angel Di Maria would rather have signed for the French champions PSG.

And just to put a little cherry on top of Man United’s cake of trouble, their financial figures have shown that they are down by a lot more money than they expected, and so van Gaal will not be allowed to spend big in January. Now is the chance for Arsenal to get some revenge and wipe the smiles off their smug faces. Hopefully the little boy will be crying like a little girl on Saturday.
