Arsenal v's Manchester United [ P + R ]



The strongest attack faces the tightest defence

Arsenal vs Man Utd

The words 'Arsenal versus Manchester United' leave tingling butterflies in the stomach, and Saturday's heavyweight encounter is likely to be one of the best this season.

The top-of-the-table fixture promises to be a mouth-watering 90 minutes, with both sides playing gorgeous free-flowing football at present.
United's current form is blemish-free following their 4-1 demolition of Middlesbrough last week - a victory which made it eight consecutive wins in all competitions.Arsenal, meanwhile, are unbeaten in 17 matches after coming through a pulsating tie at Anfield last week with a creditable draw.

In last season's corresponding fixture The Gunners secured a dramatic late win courtesy of Thierry Henry's last-gasp header. However, on Saturday, The Red Devils will be eyeing vengeance and a chance to stamp their authority as Premier League champions.

The post-Henry era has led to several youngsters - notably Cesc Fabregas - maturing in stature and belief at Emirates Stadium, while Sir Alex Ferguson has built on a title winning side with the acquisitions of the likes of Carlos Tevez, Nani and Anderson.


United have been afforded the luxury of a week-long rest, while Arsene Wenger took his side to Bramall Lane in midweek.

Player to watch: Cesc Fabregas

But the lack of Carling Cup action comes as no advantage to Ferguson, following Wenger's customary rotation to provide his young stars with a chance to shine.

Arsenal Team News

Gunners are still without Robin van Persie (knee) and Philippe Senderos (back), but he has no fresh injury concerns. Emmanuel Adebayor is likely to continue his lone role up front, with Alexander Hleb floating to support the Togo international. Eduardo da Silva is pushing for a start after a midweek brace, while Wenger must decide whether to break up the combination of Mathieu Flamini and Cesc Fabregas in midfield, with the experienced Gilberto Silva waiting in the wings.

United team news

For United, Ferguson has Paul Scholes (knee) unavailable, but Owen Hargreaves is set to make consecutive starts after playing his first game for almost two months against Boro.
Ryan Giggs will push the in-form Nani for a starting berth out wide, while Louis Saha and Michael Carrick both return to the squad.

I predict a 2-1 win for United.:Carlos*o:


Senior Squad
I don't know, it's going to be tough. I say 2-2 or 2-1 for Arsenal. It is played at the Emirates, and Arsenal are really strong at home.


Senior Squad
I'm picking a draw, the big premiership games fail to deliver more often than not so 0-0 seems most likely, still hope it's a good game though.


Starting XI

WTF, man? The game isn't on for another hr or so? ****, I honestly can't tell whether I've been awake through out the last 36hrs or just woke up. I'm all groggy and my mind's all fogged up and ****. I also feel extremely dehydrated, man.....also, my armpits stink like a big bucket filled with rancid dog turd.

I just might've gotten genuinely drunk for teh first time in my 22yr career on this Earth last night, man......**** don't feel good.

Anyway. Let's get tthis **** started!!!


Fan Favourite
Looks like Arsene would be perfectly content with a draw, with this lone striker bull**** and all.

EDIT: CMON, you bald faggot! That was a clean tackle right there, man.


Fan Favourite
I wonder how Anderson feels about playing in such a deep, defensive role? Is he just happy to be on the pitch, or is it eating at his core that he's not number ten-ing and playing just below the strikers?


EDIT; **** ME....VDS.....grrrrrrrrrr!!!


Fan Favourite
hmm....now im regretting having felt even an ounce of sympathy for that vile c/unt.....the way he was appealing for a card to be handed out against us like that, it was just revolting, man....he was himself deserving of a card for that bull****, man.

Lobbying for cards to be handed out against the opposition should be a cardable offense inandofitself, man. Let the ******* refs do their jobs.
