Arsenal Message Board
Over the last several seasons we have distinctly underperformed against Man U and that is IMO a mental issue as a result of having been out managed in the past. So often our players look afraid or below their best against Man U.
But with Wenger having crowded the midfield with 5 players to tighten-up our defense we have been a bit less generous in conceding goals. Ramsey in this respect has been usefull. Going forward we have been poor, partially as a result of having sacrificed a wide player to be able to fit Ramsey into the squad. Giroud has shown (so far) not to be a big game player so now that he is out I hope that perhaps Podolski might get a chance and take it.
This is the best set of circumstances we can hope for whilst playing United, with them having nothing to play for. I hope we can get a result and feel slightly more hopeful than than in previous encounters.
I would take a draw and party if we win.
If United field their 'usual' team, Arsenal stand a good chance of a win, but United may well field players who feel they have something to prove, and that could make it harder for the home side.
