Gunners will show United no fear

Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue has issued a rallying cry ahead of the club's big weekend clash against Manchester United.

The Gunners are all but out of the title race after suffering a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bolton Wanderers just days after a heartbreaking draw against Liverpool at the Emirates

However, Arsene Wenger's men are still in with a mathematical chance of claiming glory, and could also keep the pressure on Chelsea for runners-up spot should they claim a victory over Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

"We need to respect them and play our football, don't be scared. Play our football and we will see after the game," the Ivorian international told the official Arsenal Vodcast.


After missing out on the clash at the Reebok, the full back is hoping for a recall into the Arsenal starting line-up and could come up against one of the most decorated players in British football history.

Eboue was full of praise for Ryan Giggs, who remains one of the main men for United despite his advancing years. The 37-year-old was integral in their recent victory over Schalke, and commands respect.

"When he plays, he's like he's 20 because he's everywhere, he runs everywhere. So you have to be careful about him," the defender concluded.

Arsenal take on Manchester United this Sunday, May 1st with a 14:05 kick-off scheduled.
