Arsenal vs Manchester United: 5 key battles to watch out for

02 December, 2017, 01:27 | Author: Hannah Francis
  • Jesse Lingard scored twice against Arsenal

Lingard has been in good form for the Red Devils so far this season and has scored one goal and made three assists in the Premier League. It has now been revealed that the former Chelsea man suffered a knock serious enough to rule him out of this weekend's crucial clash against Arsenal, at the Emirates Stadium.

It's just the game, it's Arsenal, we don't think about how many points behind - just Arsenal.

He was in impressive form on Tuesday night and will be hoping that his display can help to earn him a place in the starting line-up against Arsenal at The Emirates on Saturday.

Paul Pogba says that he and Ashley Young won't "fight" over who takes free-kicks for Manchester United.

"I've played three games in a row".

'The one who is feeling it the most, ' Pogba added when asked who will take responsibility should a similar situation arise against Arsenal on Saturday. We don't think how many points we are in front of them, how many points we are behind the leader.

"I don't know if he can play", Mourinho said at United's news conference yesterday.




"Borg's coach was telling him that all the time: "One point at a time; think about just one point".

Lukaku began his United career with 11 goals in his first 10 games following a £75 million move from Everton in the summer, but the 24-year-old has scored just once in his last 11 appearances and missed a golden chance during the second half of the 4-2 win over Watford on Tuesday. "They were really outstanding", he said.

"When we have the ball we'll attack with 11 players - and when Arsenal have the ball we will defend with 11".

"I remember big matches".

"So for me you can say what you want, my keeper needs to know what to do when his team has the ball, how to attack, and my striker needs to know how to defend and what to do, this is simple".

Marouane Fellaini (muscular), Eric Bailly (groin/hip), Phil Jones (thigh) and Michael Carrick (heart condition) are also missing for the match.
