Arsenal v Man Utd on 21 Jan at The Emirates

January 11, 2007 11:11am CST
Well, the big clash is coming up in 10 days time (ya, I know Blackburn is in our path before that), but I am getting quite eager for the BIG game. Arsenal have done well, very well, this season against the bigger teams (Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea) and I hope we will continue with this form on the 21st. "King" Henry is back with "recharged batteries" and Julio Baptista has suddenly bought out his shooting boots (scoring 4 in one match). In fact I dont know who will be partnering Henry (Adebayor, RV Persie or Baptista)?? The only weakness is Gallas and Ljungberg are sure-shot absentees. Rosicky has also improved tremendously so I dont think Freddie will be missed too much, but we will have to marshall our defence pretty tightly!! Ronaldo and Rooney (if his form improves) will be the main threats to us, and maybe Scholes (the way he's scored this season), if he plays!! But I instinctively feel that Arsenal will beat Man Utd (esp. that this is the first time Man Utd are coming to The Emirates, which will also mean more Home fans for Arsenal) comfortably. My guess is a 2-1 or 3-1 victory for Arsenal. What do you feel???

According to me the match will be highly tough with Arsenal. I am fan in Manchester United derby. I think that this match will be in crucial meaning on the championship. I hope a lot that it happens to take one great match and my favourite team.Sir Alex is an insidious vermin . An Arsenal is in extremely a pan but we saw what did last match,the red devils so that i expect match with a lot of heads and an one Nouri labored for Derby. My prognosis is 1:2 for United

Well arsenal has just beaten liverpool twice and scored lots of goals at anfield. they have got henry back in team and van persie is palying the best football he ever played for arsenal.its going to be a very close and pressure game and i think arsenal might overcome manu by one sneaky goal.

Yeag, I'm looking forward to this match too. I really hope Arsenal can beat Manchester United. Though Man U has seldom lost in this season, Arsenal is getting better and better. Arsenal always performs very well when they meet the big teams, moreover, the match will be in Emirates, so I guess Arsenal has better chance to win! My guess is 2 - 1, Arsenal wins!
