With three wins in a row Arsenal stayed in the race for the Champions League, but it drew in the previous round. They faced Tottenham away and it was an important match in which they managed to take a lead and maintain it for a long time. The home team equalised and they Arsenal got a great chance. Penalty was awarded to them which Aubameyang failed to turn into goal and the result remained tied. They are certainly still sorry about the match as they could have got very close to Tottenham.
Last Thursday they went to Rennes and they opened the match well given that Iwobi scored very early. Problems started to pile up at the beginning of second half when Sokratis was sent off. They received a goal in the second half and now they have to chase backlog of 3-1. The team was refreshed and Ozil played in the midfield, just like Torriera who is suspended now. Kolasinac is back on the left flank, while Remsey will play in midfield.
Probable lineups Arsenal: Leno – Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Koscielny, Kolasinac – Guendouzi, G. Xhaka – Mkhitaryan, Ramsey, Iwobi – Lacazette
Manchester United was a big story in recent days. They made a great surprise in the Champions League but not because they are much weaker team than PSG but due to circumstances under which the match was played. Since Manchester United got new manager and that is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer it played weakly only one match and that was right the 1st leg of the Champions League round of 16 with PSG. The United lost by 2-0 to team that was weakened at the moment but in rematch it was the United which was decimated by injuries.
Result of the 1st leg realistically gave very slim chance to the team from Old Trafford to reach the quarter-finals. Despite having odds against them they succeeded and it is almost unnecessary to state how huge it was boost to their self-confidence. The United won Southampton in the previous league round thanks to goal scored in the very finish of match for the final 3-2. R. Lukaku is now the team’s best scorer as he scores at each and every match after he recovered from multiple injuries. Manchester United is still very weakened but compared to match with PSG it will be stronger for Pogma and he will be a great refreshment in midfield. Due to absence of other players there will be no further changes.
Probable lineups Manchester United: de Gea – A. Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw – Fred, McTominay, Pogba – Pereira – Rashford, R. Lukaku
