Gunners Host The Red Devils This Saturday At 20:30

Arsenal host Manchester United this weekend at Emirates Stadium at exactly 2030 hours East African time.

This is perhaps the football highlight of this weekend since both teams are on great form.

Manchester United’s performance during their mid-week match was meticulous.

The rampaging Reds struck four times in a game for the eighth time so far this season and kept up the pressure on leaders Manchester City at the top of the table in a breathless spectacle at Vicarage Road.

Ashley Young netted twice with Lingard and Martial both scoring one goal each.

These four goal were enough to cancel Abdoulaye Doucoure’s poke in from close range and substitute Troy Deeney’s score from the penalty spot.

Arsenal on the other side managed to score 5 against the composed Huddersfield.

Alexandre Lacazette had opened the scoring after just three minutes, but the real fireworks came in the second half. Mesut Ozil was at the heart of it all, creating two – for Olivier Giroud and Alexis – and scoring the other himself.
Giroud later scored a second to round off Arsenal’s biggest win of the season.
Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla remains a long-term absentee with an Achilles injury and recently suffered another setback in his recovery which saw him undergo surgery for ninth time.
Wenger is likely to field Alexis up front in place of the injured Lacazette while he faces a choice between Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck in the front three, although the latter remains more likely to start against his former club with Mesut Ozil starting in the No.10 role.

Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac will start in the wing back slots and the back three of Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal will remain unchanged.

Mourinho is likely to deploy a three-man defence for the game on Saturday while Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make his first start since injury.
