Arsenal v Manchester United

"In France, they were very big - they had a lot of French players", he told Football Focus.

"Lacazette is injured but they should be able to field a strong team".

"I play a game at a time and I think it's the way to do it", he said. If they play with the vigour and confidence and the pressing game they played against Spurs, they should beat United.

Under normal circumstances, Manchester United leaving the Emirates with a point would go down as a good result.

"I can see Arsenal scoring goals against United and I find it harder to believe that United will score goals against them". Man United got to an early 3:0 lead after only half an hour of play through phenomenal Ashley Young who bagged a brace against the former team, while Anthony Martial scored to give Jose Mourinho's side a huge advantage at the break. Lingard received a pass in his own half and ran at Watford's defense that was unable to stop him, so the English global made a decision to go for glory and succeeded.

Pogba, 24, has played 90 minutes in United's last two Premier League clashes.

With Saturday's game against the Gunners a must win for United in order to keep the gap between them and league leaders Manchester City to eight points ahead of next Sunday's Manchester derby at Old Trafford, Mourinho will be hoping one of Ander Herrera or Marouane Fellaini can ably deputise for the missing Matic, who is targeting a return on the 10th December clash against neighbours City. The magpies have lost four of their last five, overturning a two-goal deficit to snatch a point against West Brom in midweek to seal their sole point from the last 15 available. Mourinho started with Lingard and Martial on the wings behind Lukaku and that paid off against Watford as he left Juan Mata and Mkhitaryan on the bench (the Armenian wasn't even included into 18 players that visited Vicarage Road), and the gaffer could opt for the same names at Emirates.

Young will be looking to go forward at every opportunity and will come up against one of the league's fastest defenders in the form of Hector Bellerin on Arsenal's right flank.

The special one takes on a "specialist in failure".
