Arsenal coach wary of Man United forwards


Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta is expecting a fired up Manchester United when the two sides meet in a Premier League match on Sunday evening at Old Trafford.

According to Arteta, Man United’s forwards Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood have formed a solid understanding that makes them a real threat in the league.

The trio combined for 62 goals in all competitions last campaign and coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently bolstered their attack with the signing Uruguay international Edinson Cavani.

“They create really good relationships and they’re all very different. They glide together, have really good understanding and chemistry on the pitch. You can see that,” said Arteta.

“Since the lockdown, Ole has managed to improve that a lot and you can see that at the end of [last] season, the amount of goals and types of goals they were scoring. They’re a threat.

“They can play two or three different formations… they’ve been changing some things because of the opponents, because of the quality of players they have and sometimes to change the game in certain moments.

“We have to be prepared for that because they have that adaptability, they have a big squad and upfront they have a lot of options to do different things,” added the Arsenal coach.

The Gunners last won a match at Old Trafford back in 2006 in the topflight. “I want to believe we’re getting closer to getting the win there,” said Arteta.

“For sure our mindset is going to be to go there and win. That’s the approach we’re going to have and the gameplay we’re going to put in place.”

The encounter is scheduled to start at 18:30.
