  • Arsenal v Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said he is ready to take the Bjorn Borg approach to chasing down Manchester City. Arsenal is now in the 4th position in the Premier League with 28 points, 12 behind the league leaders Manchester City.

"I think Arsenal have a great chance of beating them if they turn up and that's the question".

'The one who is feeling it the most, ' Pogba added when asked who will take responsibility should a similar situation arise against Arsenal on Saturday.

Speaking after Arsenal's 5-0 thrashing of Huddersfield Town on Wednesday, which moved the Gunners to just four points behind second-place United in the table, Wenger doesn't think Mourinho will "park the bus" as he has done away from home against other rivals this season.

"No, I don't play tennis", he said. "Yesterday I was watching an interesting movie, Borg v McEnroe". Borg's coach was telling him that all the time.

Either he starts Alexis Sanchez at the tip of the Arsenal attack like he did in a game against Manchester City or he plays the Chilean in his usual role on the flank with Giroud leading the line as a traditional striker. It's just this game.

Belgium favourites in World Cup group, says England boss Gareth Southgate
England was also drawn to face Belgium and Panama in Group G , but Southgate said he won't underestimate any opposition, given England's recent history.


Saturday's tie at the Emirates is the highlight Premier League clash of the weekend, for not only have the sides produced classics in the past, they are among the most in-form sides in the English top-flight.

"It's just Arsenal. We don't think about how many points we are ahead of them or behind the leader. We focus on this".

It was then suggested to him that he was like McEnroe and Wenger like Borg, to which Mourinho replied with a smile: "No. I love tennis, I don't play tennis". "I don't play tennis".

"I remember big matches". I always say this. "When you see him play, one thing you can not question is the way he wants to play for the team".

Ashley Young has been one of United's stand out players in recent weeks and proved yet again that he is all but finished when he netted a brace in a 4-2 win over Watford at Vicarage road during midweek. Mourinho will be without the midfielder Michael Carrick who is out with a calf injury and will not feature on Saturday, while the centre-back Eric Bailly is still struggling with a knock and will probably be unavailable for this tilt.
