Gunners beaten by late Fellaini header at United 0

Posted on April 29, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal suffered a late 2-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford, courtesy of a stoppage-time winner from substitute Marouane Fellaini.

United offered the first threat on goal on four minutes, as midfielder Paul Pogba fired an effort wide of goal. Arsenal saw their first effort on goal was a long-range low effort from youngster Reiss Nelson, which David De Gea saved comfortably.

The home side took the lead soon afterwards. Pogba started the move by playing the ball to Romelu Lukaku in the area. Alexis Sanchez headed the Belgian striker’s far post cross towards goal, only for Hector Bellerin to deflect the effort on to the post. However, Pogba followed up to volley past David Ospina in the Gunners goal.

This afternoon, Arsene Wenger will face Manchester United for the final time as the manager of Arsenal Football Club. Over the last two decades he has been the constant in this fixture, and for many years to come, fans will look back and remember some of the iconic clashes that went down between two of the greatest clubs in the history of English football.

Prior to this afternoon’s encounter, however, we thought it’d be interesting to analyse the recent history between the two clubs. Contrary to what some may believe things haven’t always been quite so one-sided when they meet, and now that the Mourinho vs Wenger rivalry will be renewed for one last time, things have become even more interesting.

On This Day In 2009: United gain UCL advantage over Arsenal 0

It’s that time again for us to take another trip down memory lane, and ironically enough, Arsenal will be playing the very same team today that they did nine years ago on this day. We are, of course, referring to Manchester United, but back in 2009 it wasn’t your run of the mill Premier League clash between the two giants of English football – it was a UEFA Champions League semi-final.

By the end of the season, The Red Devils had won the PL once again whereas the Gunners finished in 4th, but regardless of that, all eyes were always going to be on this two-legged tie to determine who would play Barcelona in Rome.

On Sunday, Arsenal travels to Manchester United’s Old Trafford, as the Gunners attempt to end a terrible run of form on their travels in the Premier League.

Manchester United heads into this clash second in the top-flight table, three points clear of Liverpool in third with a game on the Merseysiders. Jose Mourinho’s team have been in good form of late in the league winning six of their last seven games in the top-flight, while also finding the net twice or more in all six of the victories.

Courtesy of bet365, it’s time to take a look at some of the best betting odds available to fans ahead of this weekend’s Manchester United vs Arsenal clash at Old Trafford.

As Arsenal prepare to take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, it will certainly be an occasion for Alexis Sanchez. The ex-Gunner will be playing against his old club for the first time since his move in January. He praised Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman made his decision to leave at the end of the season public last week, calling him a ’legend and a gentleman’.

Sanchez claims he’s still adapting to life in Manchester, and adds that United have more history than Arsenal and aim to win trophies next season – a classic case of trying to look good for your new employers, it seems.

Analysing van Gaal’s track record as a manager 0

The always divisive Louis van Gaal is set to return to the world of football management after confirming that he’s received an offer he simply can’t refuse, as reported by Sky Sports. Now while that may seem a little bit vague and we probably shouldn’t be reading into it too much, it’s easier said than done – especially when it comes to Arsenal as the rumour mill continues to turn regarding who will replace Arsene Wenger as the club’s new manager.

Arsenal’s big missed opportunity 1

Posted on April 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

As reported by The Times, it seems as if Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has recently been interested in a move down to North London. The 22-year-old has been on the fringe of superstardom for what feels like forever at Old Trafford, and despite built up as the ‘next big thing’, he hasn’t quite burst into life as many fans were expecting him to.

Would Anthony Martial be a good signing for Arsenal? 0

Posted on April 18, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Times, via the Metro, Manchester United’s French forward Anthony Martial wanted to join Arsenal in January as part of the deal that saw Alexis Sanchez head for Old Trafford.

However, reportedly United boss Jose Mourinho blocked the move and Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved to north London instead. The former Dortmund star has enjoyed a decent start to life with the Gunners.

Frustrated young talent

Martial is no doubt a top young player with immense potential. However, the 22-year-old has struggled for regular first-team football this season, especially since Sanchez’s move to the Red Devils.

Marcus Rashford is not the answer for Arsenal 0

Posted on April 11, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The rumours regarding Marcus Rashford’s immediate future have been circulating for a few weeks now, as the 20-year-old weighs up his options regarding where he wants to ply his trade over the next few years of his career. A few pundits have suggested that he moves abroad meanwhile others have suggested he remains at Old Trafford, but one thing remains certain in our mind: he shouldn’t move to the Emirates.
