Arsenal vs Manchester United: 5 key battles to watch out for

Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho whose rivalry has lasted over a decade

Paul Pogba says he wants to be involved in all of Manchester United's games, despite not being 100 per cent fit.

"United aren't as good as Spurs and they are, at the back, very, very poor".

The Frenchman will line up against the Gunners when the two sides meet tomorrow evening, hoping to close the eight point gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Raheem Sterling's goal six minutes into stoppage time earned a 2-1 victory over Southampton on Wednesday, three days after the same player had scored with seven minutes to spare to beat Huddersfield Town. Man United got to an early 3:0 lead after only half an hour of play through phenomenal Ashley Young who bagged a brace against the former team, while Anthony Martial scored to give Jose Mourinho's side a huge advantage at the break.

Then again, Mourinho has earned the right to lord it over his French rival with only two defeats in 17 matches against Wenger.

The Red Devils take on Arsenal on the weekend in the Premier League.

"Man Utd is a strong team and I expect us just to cope with the problems they will give us". The magpies have lost four of their last five, overturning a two-goal deficit to snatch a point against West Brom in midweek to seal their sole point from the last 15 available.

Young will be looking to go forward at every opportunity and will come up against one of the league's fastest defenders in the form of Hector Bellerin on Arsenal's right flank. Mourinho will be without the midfielder Michael Carrick who is out with a calf injury and will not feature on Saturday, while the centre-back Eric Bailly is still struggling with a knock and will probably be unavailable for this tilt.

The bad blood runs deep between Mourinho and Wenger, with the latter yet to forgive the Portuguese for labelling him a "specialist in failure" in 2014 when he coached Chelsea.
