Manchester United vs Arsenal Preview

Manchester United vs Arsenal

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 29th April 2018

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

This season has seen Manchester United come under some serious criticism especially because they don’t play the most exciting brand of football.

However, some of that has to be considered harsh as they are currently 2nd in the league table and have a chance to win the FA Cup by the end of the season.

They defeated Tottenham 2-1 in the semifinal of the FA Cup last week to make it 5 wins from their last six games in all competitions.

They have also won 6 of their last 7 league games with only West Brom able to avoid a defeat in that run of games.

Arsene Wenger will be looking to end his 22 years reign at the helm of the Gunners on a high starting with a win here.

That will be easier said than done, and their 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid on Thursday would have showed him just how tough it can be to beat a defensive side.

The Gunners will most likely be looking to rotate their team here as they have given up on the top four and they have a trip to Madrid next week.

Arsenal have lost their last five away league games, winning only three times on the road all season.
