Arsenal beat Leicester 5:2 in the final round and climbed to 4th position in the standings with a total of 13 points. During the week, however, the mood in the team once again dropped after “The Gunners” lost for the second time in the Champions League. After the defeat away to Dinamo Zagreb, now alumni Arsene Wenger were outplayed at home by Olympiakos with 2:3.
Arsenal have only one win in their last four households in all competitions. They recorded a win against Stoke City with 2: 0 in their last household in the Premier League. In other meetings Arsenal lost to West Ham United 1:2, made a draw with Liverpool (0:0) and as was already mentioned prevented the loss of Olympiakos.
United did against Arsenal has only one win in their last six meetings in London. This statistic is even more daunting for Arsene Wenger, who will succeed in the league against Louis van Gaal.
In the team of Arsene Wenger with injuries still Danny Welbeck, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere. As we add them and recently received injuries Mathieu Flamini and Laurent Koscielny, then absent in the composition are not a few.

During the week, “The Red Devils” recorded a fourth consecutive victory in all competitions, beating Wolfsburg 2:1 in the Champions League. The team of Louis van Gaal was lagging in the lead, but goals from Juan Mata and Chris Smalling came to the first win in the group stage of the race.
After the defeat of Suozni in Premier League at the end of August, “The Red Devils” made three consecutive victories over Liverpool and Sunderland Sautyahmptan. The most difficult was the success over the “saints”, which was 2:3 “St. Mary’s Stadium.” With two goals then distinguish new signing Anthony Marcial, who has three goals in three games in the Premier League.
In the upcoming match Louis van Gaal will not be able to count on the injured Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw. The specialist will again trusted the known composition, led by Juan Mata and Rooney up front.
Manchester United team is definitely in better shape. “Red Devils” have the advantage in recent matches against Arsenal. Of “Emirates” United play a strong lately and I expect to continue with his good performances this season.
