With Manchester United lining up against Arsenal tomorrow afternoon it’s fairly certain that plenty of eyes will be on north London. More specifically the Emirates Stadium.
In truth neither of the perennial Premier League title challengers have come quickly out of the blocks this season, and the recent injury crisis has done very little to ease the burden on both managers. It’s difficult to say who has the biggest selection headache ahead of tomorrow’s kick off, but if anything it merely adds to the excitement.
Naturally, as is always the case, tensions are running high prior to the fixture, and the fact that just one point separates the two sides heading into the game makes it all the more enthralling.
Who will win?
So will it be Arsene Wenger, with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck all serious doubts for the match, who comes out on top? Or will Louis van Gaal strike first blood in a fixture that has great historical significance?
It would be foolish at this stage to attempt to predict it. Yet with Wenger’s admission this morning, which if completely valid will significantly weaken the home team, United might just have an unlikely advantage.
What we’ve decided to do is pick the three occasions on which the Red Devils have gone to north London in the past and shown up the hosts in their backyard.
The fixtures we’ve chosen aren’t confined to the Premier League, but if you’re a supporter of either side you shouldn’t have too much trouble recalling them.
