Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players should be well aware of the potential dangers that we may face from the Manchester United and England international forward Marcus Rashford, as it was the Gunners that were United’s opponents when Rashford made his memorable Premier League debut last season.
Arsenal will not have to face our Premier League title rivals Manchester United until after the next international break, but when the Gunners do travel up to Old Trafford for the match on the 19th of November, one of the players that could prove to be the keys to an Arsenal victory is the France international star Laurent Koscielny.
After the Arsenal forward Theo Walcott missed out on the England squad for the disappointing Euro 2016 tournament in the summer, which was a result of his poor form at club level in the second half of last season, he seems to have got his act together and has been producing some great performances for the Gunners.
This game used to be one of the biggest matches of the season between the two favourites for the title every year, but since Alex Ferguson left Old Trafford, both David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal have struggled to make United back into the powerhouse we expect to see.
What Arsenal really wanted to see from the Europa League clash between Manchester United and the Danish club FC Midtjylland at Old Trafford last night was an exhausting match that went to extra time and penalties. And a confidence destroying early exit against an unfancied club would have been nice as well but we cannot always get what we want.
