Arsene Wenger is aware that Jose Mourinho has been talking about putting out a weakened Man United side when they face Arsenal tomorrow, but Le Prof thinks that it is up to his side to turn up with a much improved performance than we have been seeing lately.
In last season’s meeting between the two sides, Arsenal came flying out of the box and the game was as good as over by half-time. Wenger would love to see that again, but he doesn’t care as long as we get the all important three points. “Ideally you would like [to start like] that, but no matter when you can score the goals that win you the game, you just want to win the game,” he said on Arsenal.com. “Even if you have to suffer, we are ready to do it, we just want to win the game.
“We want to respond after a disappointing performance, sometimes there is no better way to do it than in a big game.
“We know [United] are on a strong unbeaten run, but they are not too far from us, that means they have had many draws. All the games are very tight so we just want to focus on our performance.
“Let’s not focus on what they do or what they have done. Let’s just focus on us. We know we can beat any team if we turn up with a strong performance.”
Yes we know we CAN, but will we show a bit of fight for a change?
