The Red Devils are set to host the Gunners this Sunday at the theatre of dreams in hope of ending Arsenal’s unbeaten run in the premier league this season.
The Twitter Derby
Both the sides are in form as the league is up and running, Arsenal sit at the top of the table with 15 points who face Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United who are 5th in the table with 9 points. Arteta’s side has been playing scintillating football as they continue their rebuild , on the other hand Man United are back in form with three consecutive wins .
Erik Ten Hag’s side had a stop start to the season as they lost their first two games of the season to Brighton and Brentford but the three consecutive wins against the Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester City gave United the momentum. The Centre Back partnership of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez has acted as a catalyst for the wins, changes have been made in the left back position to as Tyrell Malacia is putting a shift in. Winning against Arsenal on Sunday would drag United in a title race which would put a feather in Ten hag’s cap. This United Defense has been as strong as a brick wall as they have kept 2 clean sheets in 3 games conceding one. Dropping Harry Maguire has worked for the dutch manager. New signing Antony is likely to make a debut against the gunners surely everyone will have eyes on him . Ronaldo and Casemiro are likely to play as they are match fit according to the manager [ stated in the press conference].
The visitors on the other hand are in form have been good attacking wise . Gabriel Jesus has been a solid signing as he has been scoring goals, the attack has been clinical from this arsenal side so it’s surely going to be attack vs defense on Sunday. Their new captain Martin Odegaard has been giving back to back stunning performances but he had a knock last game against Aston Villa and was subbed off.
