Can Manchester United Be First To Halt Arsenal?
In a fascinating clash between two of the best teams, Manchester United will visit Arsenal on Sunday.
Despite winning its last three games, Mikel Arteta‘s Man United is currently the only undefeated team in the division. Prior to the match at Old Trafford, Brighton & Hove Albion will play bottom-of-the-table Leicester City and try to retain their strong start to the season.
Mikel Arteta believes that since he has already achieved success at Old Trafford while serving as our manager, any psychological obstacles he may have previously faced when playing Manchester United at their home ground have long since vanished. The Gunners triumphed 1-0 on the red side of the city in November 2020 under Arteta’s leadership to earn their first league victory there since 2006. Furthermore, Arsenal had already eliminated Manchester United from the FA Cup in 2015. In the Premier League era, the stadium hasn’t been a particularly friendly hunting ground for Arsenal , but in their last eight matches against the Red Devils, Arsenal have only lost once, albeit in Manchester last season.
In my opinion, even though United have recruited in the right areas, they still can’t halt Arsenal’s winning streak owing to Arsenal’s team spirit and form. Furthermore, Mikel Arteta changed his midfield double pivot three times this season because of injuries, and they still came out on top. He’s used Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka, Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka, and Lokonga and Granit Xhaka.
It could not have come at a better time for Manchester United to play Arsenal, who have won all of their Premier League games so far this season. Everyone glanced at the United schedule after the Brentford game, and a sense of dread descended. With Liverpool at home, Southampton and Leicester away, and then Arsenal returning to Old Trafford, there were worries that things would get nasty.
