Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have a chance to answer their critics when they face a fellow top-four rival

Manchester United will seek to put their recent struggles behind them when they host Arsenal in the Premier League on Monday.

If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thought that a Carabao Cup encounter against Rochdale would prove a nice distraction from the club’s travails in the league, he would be wrong as an unconvincing victory on penalties has only heightened the tension around Old Trafford.

The Gunners, meanwhile, approach this clash off the back of three successive victories in three different competitions.

The momentum is in favour of Unai Emery’s side, but can they keep it going?

Match Preview

Manchester United find themselves eighth in the Premier League ahead of their home encounter against Arsenal on Monday, with doubts increasingly voiced over the capability of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

While the Red Devils made it clear there was to be a youthful regeneration of the squad at Old Trafford this season, two wins from seven competitive games is far from the standard that is expected, and the announcement that the club has received record revenues over the last year simply adds to the frustration of the fans.

Wednesday’s Carabao Cup match against Rochdale was a missed opportunity to show the potential in the team. Instead of sweeping their League One opponents aside, an outfit marshalled by Paul Pogba for the duration of the 90 minutes was taken to penalties by a side beaten 6-0 by Peterborough just 11 days previous.

“Go 1-0 up, get the second. That is a learning curve. At this club you don't just sit back and think one is enough,” Solskjaer grumbled after the match. 

The last time United managed more than a single goal in a game this season was on its opening day in the thumping 4-0 home success over Chelsea – a result and performance that the team has subsequently failed to live up to.

Certainly, against Arsenal, their standard will need to be significantly higher.

While Unai Emery’s side have not necessarily been convincing themselves, they are finding a way to get results – something United are consistently failing at.

Last weekend, the Gunners trailed 1-0 to Aston Villa and were down to 10 men, yet they scored twice in the last 10 minutes to secure an unlikely 3-2 success. 

Then their youths showed their United counterparts how it should be done by dismantling Nottingham Forest 5-0 in the Carabao Cup, with Garbiel Martinelli netting twice.

With a treatment room that is starting to clear – Hector Bellerin, Kieran Tierney and Rob Holding have all played competitive football this week – Arsenal are gaining momentum just as United flounder to try to rediscover theirs.
