United are playing their 100th game under Ole Gunner Solskjaer.
In the 7th round of the English Premier League, Ole Gunnar will host Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. It is too early. But it is still very strange that both teams are at the bottom of the table. Arsenal are 12th with 9 points, and United are 15th with 7 points.
Alex Teles has not yet recovered from the Coronavirus. So, he will miss the third match in a row. Instead, Anthony Martial has completed his 3-match disqualification and will return to the Premier League.
Bruno Fernandez, Scott McKinney and Marcus Rashford were not in the starting line-up for the game against Leipzig, yet Rashford scored the first hat-trick of his career at United. This trio will most likely return to the starting lineup. The hosts will miss Bailey and Lingard due to injuries.
Solskjaer is making his 100th appearance as a United boss. The Norwegian won 55 of 99 matches and finished with 21 draws. By the way, this result is better than the first 100 games of Sir Alex Ferguson, but far behind the result of Jose Mourinho (62% wins, the 2nd result in the history of the club).
The visitors ‘staffing problems are serious – Arteta has already said that David Lewis’ game is highly questionable. The Londoners are having such a hard time defending, maybe Shkodran Mustafi will have to play. Cannot play Chambers, Martinelli, and Holding. Instead, Willian and Dani Ceballos recovered. Maybe Willian still can’t “throw out” Nicolas Pepe.
– Manchester United have not lost in 17 of the last 19 rounds of the Premier League.
– Less than 2.5 goals have been scored in the last three confrontations between these two teams.
– Manchester United have not lost their last 6 home games against Arsenal.
– For the first time since the 1972/73 season, Manchester United have won none of their first three home games.
