Manchester United will play Arsenal in their English Premier League campaign at the Old Trafford, Manchester on Sunday, Feb. 28, starting 1 PM GMT.
The month end clash is one of the anticipated games this season as Arsenal are being touted as hot favourites to push for a win at Old Trafford. As per the Skyports reports, “the Gunners are 7/5 to win at Old Trafford with Sky Bet, while United are 2/1 to pick up all three points against the side currently 10 points above them in the Premier League.”
Arsenal are only trailing table toppers Leicester City by two points and will like to go on top by making most out of Sunday night’s game. Though Danny Welbeck featured in a 2-1 win in the FA Cup sixth round match last year, Arsenal have not won a premier league game at Old Trafford since 2006.
Arsenal lost to Barcelona 2-0 in their Champions League match earlier this week with Lionel Messi outclassing the opponents with his sheer brilliance. Messi scored two in 12-minutes to seal the fate for Barca.
As per the Guardian reports, Manchester crushed Danish team FC Midtjylland 5-1 to win the Europa League 2nd Leg match at Old Trafford. The aggregate score stood at 6-3, after United lost to Midtjylland 2-1 in the first leg.
United did pull off a “Horny” performance against Midtjylland, last Thursday, as directed by their manager, Louis Van Gaal.
The Dutchman admitted that players were getting affected by the criticism directed towards him. He responded back by saying that the United have a “match of their lives” ahead and they should be able to produce a “Horny” performance at Old Trafford.
“A lot of times I use the word ‘horny’ to my players,” Van Gaal said.
“They showed fight against Shrewsbury but every game is different and every game players and managers want to fight for the victory. But we are human beings also. You are not always in the same shape and form.
We have to wait and see how United perform against league rivals Arsenal on Sunday.
