Arsenal v Manchester United talking points

Arsenal v Manchester United talking points

Arsenal were dealt a massive blow to their preparations for their crunch Premier League clash with Manchester United as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger confirmed in-form striker Alexandre Lacazette will miss Saturday's tie with a groin injury.

"Matic is a doubt", said Mourinho, who is also without the injured Eric Bailly, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jones. Ash just scored the goal at Watford so if he feels it then fine, or I feel it then I will tell him.

Asked if tomorrow morning's fixture was a must-win to keep the title race alive, he replied: "I tell my players just to think about the game".

Matic, who arrived at Old Trafford from Chelsea at the start of the season, was substituted after 55 minutes of United's 4-2 win at Watford in mid-week with Mourinho saying the Serbia worldwide had a muscular problem.

A final 10 minutes of madness from flamboyant French goalkeeper Fabian Barthez cost United a point at least, as he gifted United tormentor in chief Thierry Henry two goals to hand Arsenal a win. Man United got to an early 3:0 lead after only half an hour of play through phenomenal Ashley Young who bagged a brace against the former team, while Anthony Martial scored to give Jose Mourinho's side a huge advantage at the break.

I am anticipating an interesting clash with goals on both ends, as each team has excellent forwards, so I would be surprised if they fail to produce goals on this one. "Let's see the feeling before the match, let's see the warm up, I hope he can (play)". "I want him to, he wants to, but I can not guarantee". Given the history between Wenger and Mourinho, will either really set their teams up to be open and expansive but vulnerable on the counter?

"It doesn't matter what comes after, what happened before".

"We don't think how many points we are in front of them, how many we are behind the leaders". It's just this game, so now it's Arsenal. "I love tennis, but I don't play tennis".

"Mesut Ozil was involved in three goals (goal and two assists) in one game for the first time in his career against Huddersfield on Wednesday and the Gunners will not lack in confidence for what promises to be a cracking game".
