Arsenal will aim to continue their perfect start to the 2022-23 Premier League season when they travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
A fixture set to create a buzz is set to be the first major test for Mikel Arteta’s high-flying gunners.
The Gunners were all over Aston Villa at the Emirates on Wednesday evening but could only scrape a 2-1 win, as Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli struck either side of Douglas Luiz's equaliser direct from a corner.
Having now won five from five in the 2022-23 Premier League campaign, Arsenal continue to lead the way at the top of the table, but injuries are now starting to bedevil Mikel Arteta. With Captain Martin Odegaard and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale joining the existing list of injuries Mikel Arteta is faced with.
Manchester United on the other hand with what is more like a new-look side will hope to end their recent terrible run against Arsenal and will be counting on new signings Casemiro, Anthony, and now a fully settled Cristiano Ronaldo to run riot against the gunners.
Erik ten-hag who gradually is finding his feet in the premier league will be counting on his center-back partnership of Raphael Varane and player of the month Lisandro Martinez to stop blazing Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus.
With little or no significant injury to worry about, Erik ten-hag’s soldiers appear ready for this stern test.
Manchester United is further bolstered by the return to form of marquee midfielder Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese was key for the devils in their victory against Southampton and Erik ten-hag will hope he can continue his stellar form.
Despite suffering from injuries, the gunners appear to have just enough to get another victory over Manchester United, this owing to the fact that the bulk of Erik ten-hag’s key players appears to be the new signings. Though the test against Liverpool was stern, but it appears the visit of the gunners to the ‘theatre of dreams will be even more difficult, as the gunners experiencing their best start to the season since the era of the invincible.
On this premise, we expect the confidence of Arsenal to count a lot, and we expect an away victory alongside both teams finding the back of the net in Manchester come Sunday.
