Arsenal Vs Manchester United. This is a grand rivalry that took shape in the late 90’s. Arsene Wenger revolutionised Arsenal. Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United were in their prime. That rivalry began an epic chapter of dominance between both clubs. With these 2 winning championship after championship, this became a fierce rivalry. Ever Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, this rivalry hasn’t been the same, with Manchester United enduring horror seasons under Moyes and Louis Van Gaal.

When Louis was sacked, United signed the pantomime villain in the thinking of Arsenal fans. Jose Mourinho came to Manchester United in 2016 and that has spiced up Arsenal vs Manchester United again.

On Saturday, it’s a huge clash. With Manchester City next, Manchester United must look to stay as closer as possible to them. For that, this game is a must win game. This game has all qualities to be a high octane thriller between Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal and Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho’s men had a productive November and nowhere near the mess that’s being made out. Positives from the month are Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo coming back. Results were positive.


With both teams’ form looking eerily similar and the quality of players and the managers’ history between themselves, Everything points towards one intriguing Premier League match.


I can’t wait!!
