Manchester United’s eagerly anticipated clash with Arsenal is drawing closer. Jose Mourinho will be back on the touchline to face his old foe after sitting out the Swansea City match due to a ban. However, this game at the weekend is set to be a close one.
Ahead of that match, the Manchester Evening News have provided some welcome injury-related news for us – with Wenger set to be without two hugely important players – boosting United’s chances at taking all three points.
Hector Bellerin will be unavailable for the next month which is massive. He is the one player who would have been able to keep up with both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in terms of pace. Now, that task will be handed to either Carl Jenkinson or Mathieu Debuchy which could be interesting.
Santi Cazorla still hasn’t recovered from his injury issue either meaning they are another key player down in a vital area of the field.
There is better news for The Gunners regarding Alexis Sanchez, with the Chilean expected to be fit.
