Manchester United take on Arsenal at the Emirates with three objectives in mind; to secure three points, to get their revenge against Arsenal and to get back to winning ways. The first half was a tough one with Manchester United going close but a superman save by Arsenal goalkeeper, Bernd Leno kept Arsenal in the game.
Emile Smith Rowe was the man for Arsenal as Tierney, Saks and Aubameyang were all missing.
Emile Smith Rowe against Manchester United in the first-half had the following statistics;
Two chances created (joint-most in the match)
Five ball recoveries (joint-most in the match)
100% pass accuracy in the attacking third.
It was all Manchester United as they had more goal threats and have majority of the ball possession. Manchester United came close to scoring through Fred but a superb save by an inform Bernd Leno pushed the ball away.
Rob holding, Xhaka and Cedric have been good so far. We might likely see new signing Martin Odegaard having some game time. Also, Lacazette will need to step up as he has been appalling physically.
