Man United vs Arsenal, Old Trafford
Wednesday 5th December, Kick-off: 20:00
– Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings
– Arsenal have won just one of the last five meetings
– Man United unbeaten at Old Trafford in this fixture in the league since 2006
– Over 2.5 goals in six of the last nine meetings
– United are winless in their last three Premier League matches
Wednesday’s clash at Old Trafford could well signal a shift in the recent history of the Premier League. In all honesty, Arsenal’s record at the home of Manchester United is fairly abysmal. Their last nine visits in the league have yielded just two points, with United dominating against their, still, bitter rivals.
Underlined by the infamous 8-2 United win in this fixture in 2011, Arsenal – under the reign of Arsene Wenger – failed to re-establish any authority in their visits here (despite a cup upset in 2015).
This Arsenal looks different. A win over Tottenham on Sunday in a heated North London derby proved to be a marker set down by Emery as he looks to continue his upheaval over this bruised side. It’s now 19 matches unbeaten for the Spaniard since their life-and-death tussle with Chelsea; only four draws in those 19 fixtures underline the improvements made in North London.
It’s a different story all together for Man United. At the start of the season a 2-2 draw against Southampton would have created damning headlines, mainly revolving around Jose Mourinho. Now, in a season that has so far seen them drop eighteen points conceding 23 goals in the process (the most in the top 15 of the league!), it seems a matter of when, not if, Mourinho is given his marching orders in a calamity of a league campaign.
However, these are the kind of matches that the Portuguese maverick thrives off. Backs against the wall, with a side looking to upset the odds and quieten the media; it’s not absurd to see that United are still considered the favourites in this match.
As much as United have struggled, they’ve only lost to Juventus and Tottenham at Old Trafford this season. The question is: is this Arsenal team on that sort of level to steal all three points, yet?
I am a big fan of Emery, but I think the answer is still no. Mourinho is looking to save his reputation as a big-game manager, and it’s unlikely this his depleted squad won’t dig him out of trouble again.
The smart money is on a draw with both sides, arguably, settling for that pre-match. Goals have followed this fixture in the past, but are expected to dry up at the goal-starved ‘Theatre of Dreams’.
