Nemanja Matic caused panic for Manchester United fans when he went off injured against Watford, and with manager Jose Mourinho coming out after the game and claiming his star man would not go off injured or leave the field unless it was serious, things looked worrying for the midfielder. In fact, should the north London club triumph it would be the first time in Premier League history that they have won three consecutive home matches against United.
Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho has finally named the price at which he is willing to sell out of favour English left-back Luke Shaw. However, given the form Manchester City are in, said outcome would likely leave United 10 points adrift of their noisy neighbours ahead of their derby clash.
"I play a game at a time and that is the way to do it", Mourinho told reporters on Friday. I just expect us to be ready to recover now. "They will not only defend", Wenger said. I just want to focus and to prepare well my team, and give my team a good chance to win the game.
Then again, Mourinho has earned the right to lord it over his French rival with only two defeats in 17 matches against Wenger.More news: Pakistan court rejects plea to extend JuD chief Hafiz Saeed's detention

I am anticipating an interesting clash with goals on both ends, as each team has excellent forwards, so I would be surprised if they fail to produce goals on this one.
Speaking after Arsenal's 5-0 thrashing of Huddersfield Town on Wednesday, which moved the Gunners to just four points behind second-place United in the table, Wenger doesn't think Mourinho will "park the bus" as he has done away from home against other rivals this season. Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Aaron Ramsey, and SeadKolasinac contributed with three goals to their respective names, while the Welsh worldwide Ramsey is the most creative individual at Emirates with seven assists at the moment.
