Manchester United vs. Arsenal / Premier League – Even though they were not at the very top in the previous seasons, duels of Manchester United and Arsenal, are always derby matches. It is no different in this 15th round of Premier League, where Arsenal comes in a better mood after a great victory over Tottenham. Manchester United, on the other hand, has failed to celebrate in the previous three games in the championship and it is no wonder they are only seventh with eight points less than the fourth Arsenal. United has managed to win placement in the round of sixteen of Champions League and we will watch Arsenal at the knockout stage of Europa League. Last season Manchester United celebrated at Old Trafford with 2-1 over Arsenal.
Manchester United vs. Arsenal begins 05.12.2018 at 21:00 CET
Manchester United is not doing very well this season and the fact that they are not better ranked than the seventh place, clearly shows how they are playing in the championship. They have struggled a lot in the Champions League, but first they managed to defeat Juventus in Turin with 2-1 and then the weak Young Boys on their field with 1-0, after a goal in the very finish. They have qualified in the round of sixteen and they can now turn to the championship where they have not defeated anyone in the previous three rounds.
They have lost a city derby from Manchester City with 3-1, after which they played two draws. It was against Crystal Palace on their stadium and it ended without goals, while the second one ended with 2-2 against Southampton. They were losing with 2-0 and they managed to reach it by half-time, but they did not completely reverse the result. Coach Mourinho is having a lot of problems with injuries, while A.Young will be absent due to yellow cards.
Probable lineups Manchester United: de Gea – Dalot, Smalling, Rojo, Darmian – Herrera, Matić, Fellaini – Lingard, R.Lukaku, Martial
Arsenal has lost two derby matches at the very beginning of the championship, first from Manchester City and then from Chelsea, but after that nobody has managed to defeat them. They have played 12 championship matches in which they were not defeated and they only recorded three draws in that series. They can regret that draw with Wolverhampton on the side and especially the one with Crystal Palace at home, because those points would have brought them even closer to the top. But now, the leading team is eight points away, however, the fourth place is not so bad, especially if they continue their series without defeat. We should also include five European League matches, in which they only have one draw.
They have easily won placement in the knockout stage, but they made their favourite win on Sunday in the championship. They finally celebrated in one derby and defeated their angry city rival Tottenham with 4-2 after a brilliant overturn. They were losing with 2-1 and they reversed the result in the second half, although they were not complete again and they had to play without midfielder Ozil, defenders Koscielny and Monreal. Now they cannot count on the suspended midfielder G. Xhaka for this match.
Probable lineups Arsenal: Leno – Mustafi, Sokratis, Holding – Bellerin, Torreira, Guendouzi, Kolasinac – Ramsey, Lacazette – Aubameyang
