Arsenal travels to their fierce rivals Manchester United in a must-win game at The Theatre of Dreams as they continue to push first-placed Leicester City in the Premier League. Can the Gunners overcome their Old Trafford hoodoo and win? Or will United put a massive dent in their great rivals title aspirations? Click down for the live stream!
Before Manchester City and Chelsea came along with their billionaire owners and bought all the best players, United vs. Arsenal was always the game that many considered the title decided. Throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, these two teams fought some great battles and this promises to be just as intriguing as previous encounters.
Although mis-firing United has dropped to 5th place in the Premier League, they need to get a win to get back into the Champions League places. They may have conceded the Premier League title is out of their reach, but they will still work darn hard to make sure Arsenal can’t win it.
After beating Leicester City 2-1, Arsenal’s title push is back on track. They sit joint-second with Tottenham Hotspur, only two points behind Leicester who are still top. But they need to keep up the pressure with a win at United, something they haven’t done in the Premier League since 2006!
However, Arsenal were victorious at Old Trafford last season in the FA Cup, and in the league game it ended a 1-1 draw, so they’ll feel this could be their best chance to break that bad spell. And with Wayne Rooney a casualty, don’t forget he has been the scourge of Arsenal for years, it could be a lucky omen for the Gunners.
Given United’s injury problems, Arsenal can win this. But they will need their big players Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to show their mettle in big games.
HollywoodLifers, do you think United’s hoodoo over the Gunners at Old Trafford will continue? Or will the Arsenal be victorious? Sound off your predictions below!
