Team News

Man Utd
  • Manchester United are in terrible shape ahead of Wednesday's welcome of Arsenal, particularly in defence. Jose Mourinho was forced to play Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay at the back against Southampton at the weekend after being left with just one fully fit centre-back.
  • Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling both missed out at the weekend through injury and Mourinho will be desperate to recover at least one of them here, particularly as Phil Jones could now also be sidelined. Marcos Rojo made the bench against Southampton but only returned to training at the end of last week and has not featured for United at all this season. Mourinho may have no choice but to risk him in midweek.
  • Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian are also doubts, while Ashley Young serves a one-match ban. One of the aforementioned duo may have to play through the pain or Diogo Dalot could be chucked in at the deep end for his full Premier League debut.
  • Mourinho was reportedly left reeling from Paul Pogba's performance against Southampton and it would not be a shock if the United manager benched the Frenchman against Arsenal.
  • Granit Xhaka is suspended for Arsenal after picking up his fifth booking of the campaign in Sunday's 4-2 win over north London rivals Tottenham. Matteo Guendouzi will push to deputise.
  • Mesut Özil did not feature against Tottenham and his relationship with Unai Emery appears under strain. The German playmaker has only featured in one of Arsenal's last five matches.
  • Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey will hope to start at Old Trafford after making big impacts from the bench against Tottenham.
  • Shkodran Mustafi came off with an injury against Tottenham and his absence would force Arsenal to revert to a four man defence. Laurent Koscielny is not ready to deputise after suffering a setback in his recovery on Tuesday.


  • Manchester United are 16 points off first and eight behind Arsenal in fourth ahead of the midweek Premier League fixtures. Jose Mourinho's side are already out of the title race and a defeat here would surelt end their hopes of a top-four finish before Christmas.
  • Arsenal will be high on confidence after crushing Tottenham 4-2 in Unai Emery's first north London derby. The Gunners are unbeaten in all competitions since August and Emery has done a fantastic job since replacing Arsene Wenger in the summer.
  • Arsenal haven't won a Premier League match at Old Trafford since September 2006 but have a golden chance to change that here. United are in disarray and Mourinho's time at the club appears to be coming to an end.

  • Yellow card, error leading to goal, own goal. How did Rojo even get a 5?

  • @Nico1 To be fair the OG was a superb solo effort

  • Fellainho easily MOTM

  • @GioMonaldo Old joke

  • So arsenal laughed at Spurs on Sunday only to see them fall straight out of top 4 to 5th in 2 days and Spurs back in 3rd��������������

  • @Valak also seem to remember some Arsenal fans saying that Tottenham's 3-0 win at Old Trafford earlier this season wasn't a particularly impressive result.

  • @Valak meanwhile Unired never laughs ������

  • why is the Mkhitaryan not credited for assist to Lacazette goals ??

  • @sarcin Don't understand your post ...

  • @sarcin it was own goal. At least officially (from EPL site). And sorry, but I accidentally press "report" button on your message. :D

  • @DuncanIdaho It came off Lacazette and was counted as an Arsenal goal so it should have been counted as an assist too. If it wasn't a goal it would have been a penalty.

  • @stiop hey, I just say to @sarcin why it is not counted as assist. To my mind it shouldn't count as own goal too, but EPL is the boss.

  • The defending is really bad which makes for an entertaining game.

  • 2 already! Bookmakers are so bad!

  • Missed the first 10 mins bc I had to take a dump.

  • @GioMonaldo that is nice,. I am about to take one now. Hopefully I don't miss out on anything special

  • @MacGoreth you will miss some great defending from United

  • @GioMonaldo I am constipated so as you can guess I messed out on the goal

  • @MacGoreth LOL you need to work on your fiber game, more fiber = more shots on target

  • I have a funny feeling that United might pull their finger out for this one. United 3-2 Arsenal

  • 3-2

  • A very predictable 2-2 draw.

  • @SeuneMilmas that was predictable to you? lol, please tell us every obvious game to go for ����

  • @SeuneMilmas Finally

  • Man U to park the bus. Morinho to throw water bottles win or lose.

  • @Lukicks accurate

  • 0-3 :DDDDDDDD oh come on, this is impossible

  • @martinkamenarski Umm, you act like Man U is a good team....

  • @FutbolEZ no theyre not but whoscored acted like Arsenal is a good team ��

  • Who the HELL predicted that result ?!?!?!!

  • Total is a JOKE!!! Aresenal will score at least 3 in the 2H!!

  • @FutbolEZ nope

  • Ladies & Gentlemen tips for today: Tottenham win @1.36 / Lyon win @1.50 / Fulham 1X @1.48 ....Total odds @3.00 , this is a sure win bet for high stake , Good Luck Guys

  • @Cannavaro69 - Wasn't a bad shout, Lyon should have taken Rennes.

  • Arsenal are a different animal under Emery and Jose is not facing Wenger anymore. He is facing a manager with a set of players playing productive and positive football that are also in a devastating form. Forget about the past. United are a poor side right now and have beaten Arsenal with luck in recent games. You can’t ride your luck forever. I believe Arsenal will have too much for United coming into this game and I see only one winner here. That is Arsenal that will pile more misery on Jose!

  • I would normally go for a draw in this kinda game but then arsenal are scoring goals infact more goals....with the defensive issue of man utd i think it is either a draw or arsenal win....or another good bet here is over 2.5 goals....

  • Pause or Final X

  • United will triumph 2-1

  • Going for a low scoring game with a 1-1 draw as a likely result

  • Under Mourinho, United haven't lost a PL match when they've scored first.

  • if it was Wenger I'd go for a United win all day but Emery is no fool, close defeat for United

  • @rram So what do you mean ? at least respect Wenger he spend more than 20 years in the club , you should show some respect to him and not call him a fool please

  • @Cannavaro69 He is right though. Wenger is a fool. Should have retired in 2015.

  • good odds for an Arsenal win

  • Obamablood and Lacabloodcazette are gonna dominate once again! 1-3 for COYG

  • @stefanm smh how do you feel when you look in the mirror

  • @stefanm Cringe

  • 2-2 or 3-2, over 3,5 and united 1x

  • 2-1 Martial

  • It's been always a great result, winning matches when lose 1st half. But something had to be addressed. Could it be something related with leadership issue. Emery must solve this problem! Sell Oezil, his wage had been toxicated Arsenal best players, then open a fresh sincere contract talk with Ramsey.

  • Based on whoscored ManU players rating, Pogba is 2nd best, Darmian 1st but only play 2 match. So if Pogba is the best ManU player, but had an inconsistent performance issue, that would meant that none ManU players had a consistent performance. And if there is only one fully fit CB, I've been wondering, what kind of bus that Mou will park? Mou had a big problem, or Mou is part of the big problem? ManU fans better expect Woodward will find Mou replacement ASAP.

  • No reason to use the 3-4-2-1 formation, even if Mustafi is fit, 4-2-3-1 makes the most sense. Oezil's blagged back spasm injury at the weekend wasn't fooling anybody, especially after his previous omission against Bournemouth. Ramsey gives us a drive which you don't get with Mesut in the #10 and he is a better presser. The Utd CBs, literally every one of them, are poor on the ball when put under pressure and I'm sure Aaron will find success in this regard. I said on previous matchday pages that he shouldn't play too big of a part in first team proceedings but that was under the proviso that Oezil would. Clearly there is something wrong there and Aaron could take advantage short-term. I think Utd have some good players but Mourinho has never been able to develop a stock formation/system. After a brutal display against Tottenham where we should have won by 4 or 5, I expect us to get all three points here. Going for a conservative 2-0 Gunners win.

  • 0-4

  • 2:4 final score

  • The askari (Torreira) score's again!

  • MNU 3:1 ARS , United hate Arsenal that much that they will turn up for this game

  • I can't believe that Whoscoreds predicted team for United (De Gea, Darmian, Rojo, Smalling, Dalot, Fellani, Matic, Herrera, Martial, Lukaku, Lingard) has only managed 1 assist between them this season! That is outrageously bad.

  • Strong prediction from Whoscored! Fair play to them though if it comes off

  • MAN U 0:3 ARS

  • X all day

  • lol settle down whoscored, Arsenal are not winning 3-0

  • @mIKe9441 4-0 then

  • A pretty bold prediction by whoscored it's fair to say considering Arsenal have not won at Old Trafford since 2006..I personally think it would be a close match.

  • I would love this score, but this prediction is a bit extreme :D I think Arsenal won't win here: 1X (0-0,1-1, 2-2, maybe 2-1). And not because MU is so good, but because they'll have a but luck now (not as if they didn't have luck against Soton).

  • Manchester united 1-0 Arsenal
