Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview
Manchester United prepare to lock horns with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this weekend. The Manchester Reds enter this game on the back of a 3–0 victory over Bolton Wanderers at their Old Trafford home last Saturday, while Arsene Wenger´s men suffered a close 3–2 defeat against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
After going down narrowly 1–0 to fellow league title challengers Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the corresponding encounter last campaign, Sir Alex Ferguson´s Manchester United quite simply outclassed the North Londoners to the tune of 8–2 at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture earlier this season. Manchester United defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are both expected to return to action for this fixture after training this week and the defending league champions should at least manage to get a point from this vital clash. Manchester United Squad: David de Gea, Anders Lindegaard, Ben Amos, Chris Smalling, Rafael, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Fabio, Michael Carrick, Paul Scholes, Paul Pogba, Antonio Valencia, Ji-sung Park, Luis Nani, Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Dimitar Berbatov, Javier Hernandez.
