Four Reasons Why Manchester United Will Beat Arsenal This Weekend

Fresh off a much needed win against Wolfsburg on Wednesday, 20 time EPL winner Manchester United will lock horns with familiar foe Arsenal on Sunday in what promises to be a hell of a cracking match. The Red Devils have found themselves on top of the table in what could be said to be a lifetime away from that position. United will be looking to avoid any disappointment as a loss or a draw could see the Red Devils drop from that position and I am very sure the Red Devils will be eager to stay on top of the table. There are a lot of positives for United to secure a win over the Gunner on Sunday and we analyse these positives.

Manchester United’s form – The Red Devils are in a very good form having notched up three emphatic wins against Southampton , Sunderland and Wolfsburg  unlike Arsenal who just recently lost a must win match at home to an Olympiacos team that had not beaten them in a very long time. The Red Devils are on quite a roll and they should have no problems adding Arsenal to their list of conquered.

Arsenal injury woes – The Gunners are going to be without a lot of important first team players for their match against United. French defender Laurent Kocielny is expected to be out after picking up an injury on Tuesday while the likes of Coquelin , Welbeck , Flamini , Arteta and Wilshere are also ruled out for clash which reduces Arsenal’s firepower ahead of the United clash.

United’s confidence – United’s confidence and morale will be brimming on a whole other level at the moment due to their recent success. The Red Devils find themselves on top of the Premier League table, secured an emphatic away to Southampton and also secured a momentum and much need win against Wolfsburg which should sky-rocket their confidence. Meanwhile, the manner in which Arsenal lost the match against Olympiacos and the difficulty faced in qualifying from their group should do a lot of damage to their confidence.

United’s attack – The quality of United frontline cannot be denied, French teenager Martial has silenced critics with his mind-blowing performances in his first few games for United and has shown he has what it takes to succeed at the club. Then comes in the brilliance of Mata, the Spaniard or little magician as he called put Wolfsburg to sword on Wednesday with a master class of a performance and Gunners should be wary of him. And lastly Memphis Depay, the Dutchman has not quite gotten off the mark for United but there have been a few flashes of brilliance which shows there are much to be expected from him. Depay finally got his first Premier League goal in United’s last match against Sunderland and the goal could give him the much needed confidence to kick-start his United career.
