Ahead of Sunday afternoon’s game between Manchester United and Arsenal, Mikel Arteta has sung the praises of our attacking line.
Speaking at the press conference, Arteta has hailed the versatility and chemistry between United’s forwards.
They create really good relationships and they’re all very different. They glide together, have really good understanding and chemistry on the pitch. You can see that.
Since the lockdown, Ole has managed to improve that a lot and you can see that at the end of [last] season, the amount of goals and types of goals they were scoring. They’re a threat.
They can play two or three different formations… they’ve been changing some things because of the opponents, because of the quality of players they have and sometimes to change the game in certain moments. We have to be prepared for that because they have that adaptability, they have a big squad and up front they have a lot of options to do different things.
Arsenal haven’t beaten us at Old Trafford in the league for 14 years, with United winning eight and drawing five since.
Arteta reckons that Arsenal are getting close to claiming a result away to United and says he is setting his team up to win.
I want to believe we’re getting closer to getting the win there. For sure our mindset is going to be to go there and win. That’s the approach we’re going to have and the gameplay we’re going to put in place.
