Arsenal vs Manchester United: 5 key battles to watch out for

Wenger: Ozil Showed What He Is Capable Of

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has given an update on whether or not Nemanja Matic is available to face Arsenal tomorrow.

Both Arsenal and United have won their last three games on the trot and with their respective managers (Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho) having no love lost for the other, Saturday's tie promises to be a fiery one.

"Yesterday I was watching an interesting movie, Borg vs McEnroe and Borg coach was telling him that all the time, one point at a time, think about just one point and I tell my players just think about the game". It doesn't matter what comes after or what happens before. "I say it's hard enough for you to be not focused and thinking about other things".

Paul Pogba insists he will be happy to let Ashley Young take Manchester United's free kicks against Arsenal, assuming he is feeling confident enough to try his luck again.

A staggering scoreline. An already weakened Arsenal team, suffering from injuries and suspensions, were torn apart by a rampant United - who apparently showed no mercy until manager Sir Alex Ferguson quipped after the game "We could have scored more but you don't want to score more against a weakened team like that".

"When we have the ball, we are going to attack with 11 players".

San Francisco 49ers name Jimmy Garoppolo starting QB
Beathard started the past five games after replacing Brian Hoyer , who began the season as San Francisco's starting quarterback. The one-win San Francisco 49ers will be changing things up to try and get another "W" against the Chicago Bears .

"It could do if Arsenal play as good as they did against Spurs in the north London derby a couple of weeks ago". Since taking over at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016 he has seen his side draw three and lose four of their matches on the road against the Premier League's big boys.

United travel to Arsenal this weekend and host Manchester City later on in the month.

Victory over Arsenal - unbeaten at home in the Premier League since losing to Watford in January - would not only be another humiliation for Wenger but for Mourinho it would be United's first away win in eight attempts against top-six opposition. Although they are not in the mix for the title at the moment, Wenger's team is looking to secure the Champions League football next season, and a win here would boost their morale and chances of doing so.

"I play a game at a time and I think it's the way to do it", he said.

"Matic is a doubt", said Mourinho, who is also without the injured Eric Bailly, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jones.
