Arsenal – Manchester United (Premier League)

Arsenal and Manchester United face each other this sunday afternoon, at Emirates Stadium, in a match referent to the Premier League’s 36th round. By the time this game kicks off, Arsenal could be 9 points adrift of the top four, with Manchester City having a, theoretically, easy game against Crystal Palace, what will only ramp up the pressure on Arsène Wenger’s men. Manchester United, on their turn, arrive here after a very important win in the first leg of the Europa League semi-finals, against Celta de Vigo, and José Mourinho has already confirmed he will rotate heavily in order to focus on the 2nd leg of the Europa League.

Arsenal are 6th placed in the Premier League table with 60 points, result of 18 victories, 6 draws and 9 defeats, with 65 goals scored and 37 goals conceded. As usual for Arsenal, this was just one more season where they ended up not being unable to enter in the title race, but less usual is the fact of the Gunners being further and further away from their usual 4th spot, where they are used to finish every season. The only alternative for the french coach to take something positive from this season is to win the FA Cup, where they have already qualified for the final and will face Chelsea.

Yet, until there, the Gunners must focus on winning this game and in getting closer to the 4th spot, which grants access to the Champions League play-off. Besides they might being 9 points adrift from the table’s top 4 when this game kicks off, Arsène Wenger has never beaten José Mourinho in a competitive game. At home is where the Gunners are stronger, having lost only 1 of their last 5 games in the Premier League, winning 3, scoring 9 goals and conceding 4 in the process.

In their last 5 official games, Arsenal won 3 games and lost the remaining 2. This sequence of results started a 3-0 away defeat against Crystal Palace. This result was followed by a 1-2 away victory over Middlesbrough, 2-1 home win against Manchester City, for the FA Cup, 1-0 home win over Leicester City, and in their last clash, a 2-0 away defeat against Tottenham. Cazorla, Xhakha and Lucas Pérez are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Cech – Paulista, Koscielny and Mustafi – Chamberlain, Ramsey, Coquelin and Monreal – Sánchez and Ozil – Giroud.

premier-leagueManchester United, on their turn, are 5th placed in the Premier League table with 65 points, result of 17 victories, 14 draws and 3 defeats, with 51 goals scored and 25 goals conceded. Manchester United are, along with Tottenham, the team with less defeats in the Premier League. However, they draw too many games, which is complicating their task of reaching a Champions League spot. The Red Devils are motivated with their away win in Spain, at Celta de Vigo’s home ground, where they won for 0-1 with Marcus Rashford scoring the solitary goal of the clash, which left the Manchester side with a good chance of securing a place in the Europa League’s final.

In spite of the fierce rivalry between José Mourinho and Arsène Wenger, the portuguese coach has already confirmed that he will rotate his squad on order to concentrate in the Europa League, since in case he wins the competition he will be automatically qualified for the next season’s Champions League. Even when they are playing away from Old Trafford, the Red Devils are a very tough to beat, since they haven’t lost an away game, for the Premier League, since October 23, and they have won 4 of their last 5 outings, scoring 11 goals and conceding only 1 in the process. This is the team with the 2nd best defense of the english championship, what will be a huge test for the Arsenal’s offensive sector.

In their last 5 official games, Manchester United won 3 games and draw the remaining 2. This sequence of results started with a 2-1 home victory agains Anderlecht, for the Europa League. This result was followed by a 0-2 away win against Burnley, 0-0 away draw against Manchester City, 1-1 home draw against Swansea City, and in their last clash, a 0-1 away victory over Celta de Vigo, for the Europa League. Luke Shaw, Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo, Fosu-Mensah and Ashley Young, injured, and Fellaini, suspended, are all out for this clash.

Probable Lineup: Gea – Darmian, Smalling, Jones and Blind – Carrick and Pogba – Mata, Mkhitaryan and Martial – Rooney.

Manchester United has only won 2 of their last 8 meetings, draw 3 and losing the 3 remaining.
