Team News: Arsenal vs Man Utd

I think it`s fair to say that for most Gooners of this generation the 8-2 defeat at Old Trafford earlier this season was amongst the top ten low points of the last 25 years.

Despite a number of key injuries the sheer size of the loss was enough to sink lots of fans into a deep footballing depression. However following the loss we picked ourselves up and dusted messy crap away from our red and white clothing to drag the team up to a more respectable postion.

There are three certainties in life, death, taxes and home and away games in the Premier League, and today is the day we get to attempt to rectify that result.

Of course we don`t need to embarss United the way they embarrassed us, a simple 3 points would suffice.

So with only minutes till kick off let`s look how the teams line up.

Song, Djourou, Walcott need to step up their level of performance FFS.

There you go, 1-0. Men against boys. This isn't even a great Man Utd side.

north london solidarity.. what has happened to you it looks like wenger has lost the plot and just does not know what to do. the massive plus for you is i think the young lad chambelain looks fantastic with the ball a real star there and everything walcott and lennon should of been. a bit neive but that can be coached out of him

You look at Man City and Spurs earlier and their quality of players and then you look at ours. Too much creative responsibility is being placed on Ramsey and he's too young and good, but not quite top class. This Arsenal team is crying out for a Mata/Silva type player to control possession in the opposition's half particularly around the opposition penalty area. Walcott it frankly a waste of place and offers a poor return, perhaps a good performance every 5-6 games. At least The Ox looks as though he can deliver. Look at the threat that United give: you've got Nani, Valencia, Rooney, Welbeck and even Giggs that can hurt you. Us? We have RvP and maybe The Ox. That's it!

gooner vin i disagree ramsey is capable of being at that level but i think hes putting too much pressure on himself and hes trying too hard... now thats a spurs fan telling you that an arsenal player could be top quality crazy isnt it :) i think if you put a modders, silva or mata in that midfield in his place they would not perform much better as the rest of the midfield is quite frankly useless in relation to the standard you have had in the last 10-20 years
