There aren’t many Manchester United fans going in to this game against Arsenal with any expectation of a positive result. Ralf Rangnick was particularly damning in his press conference yesterday, suggesting he’s unhappy with the way they train and their inability to follow instructions on the pitch. Aside from the lack of quality on the pitch, United players don’t appear to have any spirit left in them. It’s hard to believe this is the same group of players who went a season unbeaten away in the previous campaign, who would come back fighting every time they went a goal behind and more often than not turned the result around.
Arsenal come in to this game on a high after an impressive 4-2 win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. Having lost three games on the bounce before then, they picked themselves up and will be up for this one too.
