Arsenal vs Manchester United
Date: 2nd December 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
Both Arsenal and Manchester United produced impressive attacking displays in mid-week announcing their head to head clash on Saturday evening at Emirates in the best possible fashion.
The Gunners will be hoping to close the gap on their Manchester rivals by extending the fine run of form at home in this term.
Arsene Wenger’s men have been impeccable at Emirates so far in the season winning each of previous seven league outings in North London.
Nonetheless, apart from their city rivals Spurs, Arsenal did not face a top-half opposition at home in this term.
All of the wins, including the 5-0 thumping of Huddersfield Town on Wednesday, will thus count for little when the Gunners come face to face with the second-placed side in the competition this Saturday.
United lost ground on the runaway leaders Manchester City after some unexpected slip-ups (primarily the one against Huddersfield Town on the road).
Jose Mourinho, however, managed to raise the spirits in mid-week when his men notched an impressive tally of four goals away at Vicarage Road against an in-form Watford side.
Ashley Young and Nemanja Matic played their best games of the season, while the likes of Anthony Martian and Jesse Lingard also got their names on the scoresheet later on.
Nevertheless, we have to mention that the Red Devils have been struggling with their form on the road where they lost three of last five matches in all competitions.
