Arsenal vs Manchester United Match Preview
Mikel Arteta has yet to make an impact as Arsenal manager and will hope to start turning things around when his out-of-sorts side host Manchester United on New Year’s Day evening.
The Spaniard is still getting to grips with the mess left by his compatriot Unai Emery and there is clearly no quick fix, as his caretaker predecessor Freddie Ljungberg also found – a run of only one win in 15 matches is simply dreadful form for a club such as the Gunners.
The latest blow was a 2-1 home defeat by Chelsea after leading for 70 minutes and even though Arteta is a managerial rookie, he knows he needs to start reversing the decline quickly or the road back to the top, where Arsenal feel they belong, will become even harder.
Manchester United, after improving their results, especially away from home, are the obvious bet here – but it may not be that simple. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have a decent record at the Emirates under the lights since 2014 and their counter-attacking game is ideal for this fixture.
But United are not a rock-solid proposition here by any means. They have had some dismal results on their travels, including losing 2-0 at bottom club Watford recently, and been beaten 2-0 or 3-0 on three of their last four league visits to this venue – all of which were on Sunday afternoons, which may or may not be a coincidence.
Arsenal’s players must surely benefit from Arteta’s arrival soon, or else the board have made a huge mistake in hiring him, and they may just be worth backing to grind out the first victory of the new era.
