Arsene Wenger has always maintained that it is extremely important for Arsenal to play beautiful attractive football that will entertain the fans. He has also emphasised that he doesn’t worry too much about opposing teams tactics and sticks to playing The Arsenal Way, then winning will come naturally. It has been exciting to watch over the years but it is obviously detrimental to actually winning games, according to the man that has played under both Mourinho and Wenger for many years, Petr Cech.
Manchester United manager mentioned Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez mistakenly in an interview this week, sending social media into meltdown.
The Chilean international has been strongly linked with the exit door this summer, with his current contract having run into his final 12 months, and with a mexican stand-off having ensued.
Jose Mourinho is set to take on Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal on Sunday with his Manchester United side, and their appears to be some strange mind-games going down.
The Portuguese tactician claims that he will seemingly weaken his starting XI as he looks to prioritise the Europa League competition, in which his side hold a 1-0 advantage going into their home leg.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that he will be make a number of changes for the upcoming encounter with Arsenal, but that does not mean he will be setting his team up to lose.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has once again claimed that he will be rotating his squad for the weekend’s Premier League tie with Arsenal.
The Gunners host the Red Devils at the Emirates in the Sunday evening kick-off, in what could have a huge bearing on the race for the top-four. Despite the importance of the match-up, United are supposedly looking at weakening his side, with a view to concentrating on the Europa League instead.
There could be two very different approaches that Arsenal will face at Old Trafford tomorrow, with some fans expecting Jose Mourinho to set his Manchester United team up to stifle the space and frustrate our fluent, and creative attacking football, while some including our veteran keeper Petr Cech thinking that Mourinho will have to be more adventurous as he is already six points adrift of us and eight points off the top of the Premier League table so a draw would not be all that much use to him.
When I ask the question of whether Arsenal can do a Chelsea over Manchester United there are two ways to take it, but I think that both apply. When our Germany international star Mesut Ozil was talking about Chelsea this week however, as reported by the Evening Standard, it was clear that he was saying that the Gunners must try to produce another performance like the one against the Blues earlier in the season which saw us tear them apart and win confortably.
Arsenal go to Old Trafford tomorrow needing a win to make sure that we do not drop more than one game’s worth of points behind the current Premier League leaders, with Liverpool sitting on top of the table on 26 points, Chelsea one behind with 25 and the Gunners fourth and level on points with third placed Man City on 24.
