Manchester United will look to carry the momentum from their 3-1 win over Swansea City when they face one of their favourite opponent in Arsenal. But things will not be nearly as easy as all the previous statistics speak. Jose Mourinho might have changed clubs but it is given that his animosity with Wenger will have been carried along with a change in the club.

Although Jose might want to start the mind games well and early, Wenger would know it will be a defense mechanism more than anything else this time around. The Special One hasn’t settled in Manchester properly and the matters on the field have certainly not helped him in that regard whatsoever.

Mourinho still has to decide on his best eleven and the inconsistent nature of the performances from his players has made it tougher. He is not happy with the commitment and desire shown by some of the players but over the international break, things must have been sorted out at some level or the other.

United need to be unified if they are to harbour any hopes of cracking the top 4 in the near future and then take it from there. With the blockbuster signings they have made, anything less will be a total disaster for them.

T4O’S PREDICTED MANCHESTER UNITED LINE-UP VS ARSENAL (4-2-3-1)

DEFENCE

David De Gea will be their custodian and it is anybody’s guess which keeper will come out on top after the end of 90 minutes.

Darmian is likely to get another chance to impress with no date fixed for Valencia’s return as of yet. Bailly’s injury has been a big blow for them along with Smalling’s who is a massive doubt to play.

In that case, Jones and Rojo might line-up at centre-back. Luke Shaw will hope he doesn’t face the aftereffects of last week’s outburst by Mourinho. United need him at left-back. And he needs the manager’s confidence.

An ardent sports lover who loves to sleep, eat and watch Manchester City play. In that order.
