Manchester United travel to London on Saturday at the back of a somewhat comfortable win against Watford in midweek. But this might not be the perfect time for them to visit the Emirates simply cause Arsenal are without a doubt in their best form of the season.
The Gunners have won three consecutive games and the last team to beat them in the Premier League were leaders Manchester City.
ARSENAL VS MAN UNITED TEAM NEWS:
Arsenal has claimed that Jose Mourinho will not ‘park the bus’ during Saturday’s game and we share the same feelings with the Gunners boss. Mourinho just cannot afford another slip-up and will have to try and win each and every game. So we assume that he will name a very attack-minded starting XI on Saturday.
Both Eric Bailly and Phil Jones have been missing from action during the past couple of games but both of them are expected to be back before the Arsenal game. While Bailly might be fit enough to start the match we suspect that Jones will be on the bench.
Nemanja Matic limped off with a knock during the midweek fixture against Watford but we presume that it was just a precautionary measure and the summer signing will be back in midfield. Marouane Fellaini missed the game against Watford owing to a knee injury and remains a major doubt for the Arsenal game.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also another player who has fully recovered from his ACL injury and has also made a couple of substitute appearances for the Red Devils. But Saturday’s game against Arsenal could very well be his first start after the long injury lay-off.
ARSENAL VS MAN UNITED PREDICTED LINE-UP:
