The tenth round of the English Premier league will be opened with a derby match between Manchester United and Arsenal who is 6 points behind the club from Manchester.
But what is much more important for Man United is that in the last round in a direct experiment with the current leader Chelsea on an away match they have celebrated with 3:2, so now the gap is only one point.
For introduction in need this match,it has to be said that United have won last year in both Premier league matches,while Arsenal have succeeded to win only one of their last 10 matches against Man Utd.
Of course it is only one of the indicators that the hosts are big favorites in Saturday’s derby, no matter what the opponent on the other hand have enough motivation to achieve a good result.
However, Sir Alex Ferguson players just last weekend had shown their strength at the Stamford Bridge, when they with great help of referee´s , came to three very important points in the duel with Chelsea, so that now any spilling of points again would return them where they were seven days ago.
Certainly they are well aware of that in the United´s camp, so the experienced Scottish expert on Wednesday meeting in the League Cup, against Chelsea have sent a completely changed team, which have nevertheless been in a great opportunity to come to another great victory, but after extra time they were eventually defeated with 5:4.
For the match with Arsenal,the first team certainly will return, but still Manchester United who have a lot of problems in defence,will miss from before injured Vidic, Jones and Smalling, while the absence of Kagawa in midfield given the great form of other players from that part of the team is not so significant.
Here, most of all we think on the fleet-footed Valencia and Young, who in the meeting with Chelsea have shown a great form despite their recent troubles with injuries, while also Rooney and van Persie in attack are playing along much better, so it is expected and this time also from them to be up to the task.
Manchester Probable lineup 4-2-3-1 : De Gea;Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra;Carrick, Cleverley;Valencia, Rooney, Young;Van Persie
Unlike their rivals, Manchester United, Arsenal players have so far collected six points less , and therefore coach Wenger can not be especially pleased with the performances of his chosen ones this season.
In fact, they play a very changeable and with a lot of problems in the organization of the game, so we can safely say that on several occasions, they quite happily won a few matches.
Perhaps the best example of this was at their last Premier league match against QPR in which just sixth minutes before the end trough Arteta they have scored and won the match.Beofore that winning goal they have seemed harmless.
However, experienced Wenger has pointed out that the most important thing for them was to won three points and kept the connection to the leading teams, as well as to broke a series of two defeats in a row, from Norwich and from Schalke in the Champions League.
Otherwise, just this matches on multiple fronts, forces them in other competitions, such as the League Cup, to perform in one combined younger composition, like in the match on Tuesday when they as guests at Reading had a lot of problems, but in the end with a large dose of luck and persistence have celebrated after extra time, with fantastic 7:5.
Let us add that for the “Gunners” are still out of action injured goalies Szczesny and Fabianski,defender Gibbs and midfielders Diaby, Rosicky and Oxlade-Chamberlain, while in a meeting with QPR striker Gervinho got injured.
Arsenal Probable lineup : Mannone;Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Santos;Wilshere, Arteta;Cazorla,Ramsey, Giroud, Podolski
Match Prediction :It is a big English derby, but we must know that Man United lately is in a lot better shape than the Gunners from London, so we expect their certain victory in this match at Old Trafford.
