Manchester United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Sunday and if the game is anything like last Sunday’s, then we’re in for a cracker. Sir Alex Ferguson’s side edged a controversial 3-2 thriller in West London and once again United’s attacking talent bailed the side out.
Arsenal were involved in a 7-5 win at Reading during the week that left Arsene Wenger a little greyer. Having gone 4-0 down, Theo Walcott inspired a comeback to force extra-time where another four goals were scored. The defending in the opening 45 minutes was Sunday league quality, as has some of United’s during the opening part of the campaign. United have conceded ten goals in their past four outings to suggest the floodgates could open once again on Saturday lunchtime.
Football fans will likely recall that there were ten goals scored in the Gunners’ most recent trip to Old Trafford, while there were three in the corresponding fixture.
