Manchester United vs Arsenal
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
Arsenal’s tough schedule continues as they travel to Old Trafford on Wednesday, looking to build on the great 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur with another terrific second half as well as a three-game winning streak across competitions – where they also beat Bournemouth and Vorskla.
Gunners still sit eight points behind Man City at the top of the table but they’ve now made the top 4 cut and we’ll surely see them very motivated to build on the success, where beating Man United comes off as an essential task for Unai Emery and his men. They’ve had no troubles playing on the road and now promise a great challenge in Manchester.
Red Devils have been more unpredictable and the 2-2 draw at Southampton, where they conceded two very early goals, proves to the points. They’ve earned just one win in last four games again and two points in three league outings have Jose Mourinho in the hot seat whether he likes to admit it or no, despite seeing his men regularly scoring goals.
