Manchester United fans have been quick to criticise David Moyes following a series of poor performances by the reigning Premier League champions this season, and defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium tonight will undoubtedly turn up the heat further on the under-fire manager.

After a disappointing 2-2 draw with Fulham at Old Trafford on Sunday, it's important that the Red Devils get back to winning ways as quickly as possible, but face the rather daunting task of defeating the Gunners on their own patch.

In the build-up to Wednesday's crucial encounter - which could see Arsene Wenger's side return to the top of the table with victory - talkSPORT have mocked up a hilarious tactics board (above), poking fun at Manchester United's manager.

The spoof picture makes reference to Moyes's troubles in the transfer market, citing reports that he's not happy with his back four, and also alludes to Manchester United's ridiculously high cross count in the recent clash against Fulham.

Wayne Rooney and Adnan Januzaj are highlighted as the visitors' 'only hope' of getting a positive result, while Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has been picked as the weak link in the hosts' side.

Judging by this, it's Arsenal who appear to be the favourites to claim all three points, and bounce back from Saturday's 5-1 drubbing against Liverpool at Anfield.
