When Arsenal take on Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow it will be just the third game of the month and there will still be three games left for the Gunners to play in November, so to say that we have to beat United tomorrow in an away game we have not won for 10 years in the Premier League to avoid this being another nightmare month may seem a bit harsh.
But there is that well publicised and much talked about record that we have in this calendar month and that will be in the minds of the players if we fail to win tomorrow. So far you could say that it has been a decent month, with a Champions League away win against Ludogorets Razgrad and a point from the north London derby, but you could also say that we threw away a lead in that derby and failed to capitalise on Tottenham’s poor run of form and that we were lucky to stay on top of our UCL group after conceding two early goals.
With the group decider against PSG coming up on Wednesday I think it is vital for us to get a win at Old Trafford to stop those fears of another horrible month creeping into the minds of the players. The door swings both ways though, and if we bring all three points back to London I see us going on to beat PSG or at least getting the draw we need to keep us in pole position.
So what is it to be this November Arsenal?
