We are in for a fascinating match on Friday night as the Gunners take on a rampant Man United, who have won every game since Ole Gunnar Solksjaer took over at the helm. But Arsenal have turned the Emirates into a fortress in the League since our opening day defeat and the home crowd seems to be having a big effect on the team’s performances so we should also be very confident.
Emery is looking forward to the big game between the two teams that have won more FA Cups than any other team. This is what he said when Arsenal.com asked him what he thought about Man United: “Good afternoon. It’s a different team. It’s the same players but they’re playing with a big performance now. I was watching their last matches and and each player has a lot of confidence, with big performances, and now they are very dangerous.
“For us, it’s good because it’s a very big test for us in this competition. Manchester United and us have played 20 finals in the FA Cup, and we’ve won 13 and they’ve won 12. For this competition, it’s the best match to play. We are looking forward to playing this match on Friday because it’s at our stadium, the Emirates, in front of our supporters. We feel very well in front of them and we want to create a new atmosphere over 90 minutes on Friday, together with our supporters.”
The home support certainly worked brilliantly against Chelsea on Saturday, and it would be a real boost if we can follow that up by knocking United out of the FA Cup as well.
Come on You Gooners!
