Let’s hope Ole Gunnar Solskjær and his Manchester United charges weren’t caning it on New Year’s Eve, as they’re back in Premier League action away at Arsenal on Wednesday evening. If we think our season’s been ropey so far, it’s nothing on theirs: Arsenal have already sacked one manager and replaced him with rookie Mikel Arteta, who has picked up just one point from his first two games.
United, on the other hand, head in buoyed by the confidence of back-to-back wins over Burnley and Newcastle. United will still be without Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot, Scott McTominay and possibly Paul Pogba, but Arsenal too are plagued by injury problems. Calum Chambers, Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolašinac are all out; Granit Xhaka, Dani Ceballos, Sokratis, Gabriel Martinelli and Héctor Bellerín are all doubtful.
