Having gone unbeaten in the league for 13 games since Arsenal beat Manchester United at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be wanting to recapture that excellent form that propelled us momentarily to the top of the table in Saturday evening’s fixtures.
The clubs’ fortunes were largely reversed after this point, with Arsenal losing five of the seven games that followed. But their form as been much better recently, albeit with the blip that saw them knocked out of the FA Cup by Southampton last weekend.
United lost their first game since that Arsenal defeat in a shock result against Sheffield United during the week. While several key decisions went against us, our performance was poor and we need to offer lots more against this in form Arsenal side today.
