It’s one of the biggest matches in the EPL this season as Manchester United hosts Arsenal. The live blog will begin about 10 minutes before kickoff or at 2:50 PM USA Eastern and 7:50 PM local UK time (GMT).
Manchester United (last 6 EPL matches – WWDDWW)
The Red Devils are the only unbeaten team in the EPL and could go on top of the table with a win. They have a 7-1-0 record at Old Trafford and +18 goal difference. Injuries to the squad include Hargreaves (hamstring), Owen (hamstring), and Valencia (ankle).
Arsenal (last 6 EPL matches – LWWLWW)
The Gunners are top of the table heading into the match and can extend their to three points with a win. Arsenal is 5-2-1 in away matches and won their last four. Injuries for the match are Almunia (elbow), Diaby & Gibbs (both ankle), Frimpong (knee), and Vermaelen (Achilles). Captain Cesc Fabregas could be available for the match and will face a late fitness test before kickoff.
Arsenal’s form has dropped a bit in recent weeks while the Red Devils are always very tough at Old trafford. A narrow in for Man U seems most likely (2-1) but it wouldn’t be a shock to see Arsenal sneak out a win.
