Arsenal vs Manchester United
2 December 2017
Kickoff 19:30 (CAT)
There’s no love lost between Arsenal and Manchester United, especially when it’s another meeting between Arsène Wenger and José Mourinho.
Arsenal have won the last two meetings between the sides at Emirates Stadium in the Premier League. However, you have to go back to May 1991 for the last time The Gunners beat United in three consecutive league encounters at home, which was Highbury back then.
Arsenal are still without the unfortunate Santi Cazorla who must undergo ankle surgery yet again. Impressive new signing Alex Lacazette, picked up a groin injury against Huddersfield and will miss out, while minor doubts remain over the involvement of Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott. For United, Nemanja Matić picked up a muscle tear in midweek against Watford and is a major doubt, as are Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Marouane Fellaini. Midfielder Michael Carrick is definitely out.
Arsenal midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Özil are hitting their straps and pulling the strings. United’s star duo of Paul Pogba and Zlatan are back. Expect fireworks, goals and entertainment at The Emirates.
Zlatan at 1.40
Giroud at 1.35
Özil at 2.70
Pogba at 2.85
Valencia at 10.25
Kolasinac at 6.00
