Says the Guardian: "Following their midweek heroics at the Parc des Princes, Manchester United’s players must “go again” for an away trip to Arsenal on Sunday, the outcome of which could have a huge bearing on either or both sides’ involvement in next season’s Champions League. For all Arsenal’s flakiness, looking at both sides’ run-ins following this encounter, it is hardly an exaggeration to say this is a “must win” game for United. Their final eight games include six against top-half-of-the-table sides , including Manchester City and Chelsea. After playing United, Arsenal face only two teams currently in the top 10, with seventh-placed Wolves the highest ranked. Theirs is unquestionably the easier run of fixtures, so United cannot afford what would be an understandable dip in performance after their midweek Lord Mayor’s show."

Fuck's sake. That's probably true.

It will be interesting to see what team Ole puts out, and how we set up.

Lukaku has become undroppable, all of a sudden.

I would take a draw now, it's a lot to ask the players to go again after such an heroic performance in the week.

Arsenal can be decent on their day so it will be difficult even if we've had recent success there.

Can't believe how much I'm enjoying the football again after writing this season off.

I can see a draw too. Arsenal looked a lot more solid against Tottenham

Their home record is extremely good, in the league at least.

I think we'll win, we have the momentum.

Bit anxious about this one, just because I think we’re due a defeat.

If we can look after their front two, I think we’ll win though.

Fred keeps his place he must be showing up in training. There's the traces of a first 11 about this team. Herrera and Martial will be easily slotted in as they get fitter again.

Ash i don't get why we're due a defeat. We're not playing like we deserve it.
