The Manchester United vs Arsenal clash on Monday is sure to grab some eyeballs despite the two sides not being at the top of their game.
A couple of years ago this match was one of the most talked-about affairs in English football but recently the Manchester United vs Arsenal encounter has lost its shine as the likes of Man City and Liverpool have taken over the top spots in the league table.
But speaking before the clash, Arsenal boss Unai Emery explained that his team will give everything they have in order to pick up a win at Old Trafford since the whole world will be watching this match.
“It’s an amazing moment, an amazing match between these two teams in the past, the present and the future,” said Emery.
“Each match when I watched in Spain, Arsenal v Manchester United, Manchester United v Arsenal, was a special moment.
“I think Monday at eight o’clock, all around the world, if someone wants to watch a football match, it’s this one.
“We really want to play matches where we can do something important. We are preparing well. The players are wishing to play the next match – we know it’s a very big opportunity for us to get three points.
“Solskjaer has experience, he was a player at Manchester United, he knows the club perfectly.
“He knows the high competition, the high level and he has now very good players. His challenge is also to achieve the consistency and performances that will get them in the top four.
“We are going to fight on Monday the first time of this season and it’s how we can respond, us and them.”
The London outfit are currently the favourites to pick up a win during the Manchester United vs Arsenal clash simply because the home side are currently dealing with a number of injuries.
The likes of Martial, Rashford and Pogba are all injury doubts on Monday and we could very well see Solskjaer depending on youngsters to pull the game through. And if this happens then Man United will surely be playing the fixture into Unai Emery’s hands.
