Arsenal v Manchester United

  • Wenger doesn't expect United to park the bus

Next up for Arsenal during the congested winter months is Manchester United, and this writer is sort of hopeful about the game.

So, Manchester United defeated Arsenal in a Premier League fixture that went down at the Emirates Stadium.

Victories over Burnley and Huddersfield Town have lifted the confidence levels in north London but they face a stern test at home this weekend.

Wenger said the forward had been struggling with a minor hamstring problem, but should be OK for the United clash. Given Mesut Özil's brilliance in the last two matches, though, as well as the rest of the team's recent form, I don't think it's unreasonable to hope for a goal or two.

Tesla Powers Up World's Biggest Battery
Lithium-ion batteries have a greater charge cycle than conventional lead-acid batteries, and can respond within seconds. The battery is said to be capable of powering 30,000 homes, said Yuen Low, an analyst at Shore Capital.

Wenger also voiced his sympathy for his team following a fantastic performance that received no reward: "We have produced an excellent performance, but we conceded three goals and we had at least 10 chances and we were not efficient enough in the box".

Arsenal will unfortunately be without Alexandre Lacazette tomorrow.

Alexander Lacazette suffered the injury during Wednesday's 5-0 win over Huddersfield, while Alexis Sanchez is a doubt for the game. The Gunners will also still be missing Santi Cazorla for the foreseeable future.

The Arsenal manager also admitted to not knowing what injury Shkodran Mustafi sustained following the defender limping off during the first-half of the defeat to Manchester United: "I don't know what's wrong with him at all". He limped off with a muscle complaint against Watford and he could join Marouane Fellaini, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Michael Carrick on the sidelines.
