Arsenal went to Old Trafford today hoping to end a 10 year wait for a Premier League win away at Old Trafford and we had a great chance to do so against a Manchester United side weakened significantly by the absence of key players like Ibrahimovic, Bailly, Smalling and Fellaini.
Manchester United have apparently given the number 8 shirt to Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the coming season, meaning that Jose Mourinho looks set to demote Juan Mata for the second time.
The midfielder was Chelsea’s Player of the Year for two years running before Mourinho returned, and instantly promoted Oscar ahead of the Spanish international.
What on earth was Mike Dean thinking today? The referee has regularly been talked about as having a bit of a penchant for making decisions that hurt Arsenal, like the infamous Diego Costa, Koscielny and Gabriel incident in our game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players are well aware that there is still a long way to go as we chase the Premier League title this season, despite all the pretend outrage from the football media after the players had the temerity to take a happy looking team photo in the dressing room after beating Leicester with a last second winner.
There you go Arsene Wenger, there is no need to waste your time making complex plans about how Arsenal should go about facing the current Premier League leaders at the Emirates tomorrow. The Gunners know how to create and score goals anyway, so as long as we can cope with the attacking threat from Manchester United, victory should be ours.
Obviously Arsenal will need to play a lot better against Manchester United on Sunday than we did against Olympiacos on Wednesday in order to get anything out of the game, but you would certainly expect a reaction from the Gunners and it seems clear that Arsene Wenger is treating the Premier League as his main objective this season and so will actually pick his strongest Arsenal line up.
Arsenal face big troubles against Man United by KM
Hi guys. So the Champions League week two of the group stages is gone and the clubs from Manchester rescued some of England’s pride at the competition after London failed miserably. Yesterday I watched the United game, because they are up next this Sunday at the Emirates and things do not look good for us.
When Arsenal signed Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid last summer, it was enough to convince Jose Mourinho to pull the plug on the deal that was in place for us to loan Demba Ba from Chelsea. His former manager from Real Madrid called Ozil the best number 10 in the world, but these days people are saying he is not even the best number 10 at Arsenal.
