These are not the best of times for Manchester United as they host an in-form Arsenal team at the Old Trafford in one of the midweek English Premier League fixtures.
United have recorded just 12 points from a possible 21 in their last set of games and it is believed in some quarters that Jose Mourinho is on the brink of a sack
United are currently languishing in the eighth position on the log and are also eight points adrift of the Gunners who on their part have been enjoying a good run of form under the reign of Unai Emery.
After losses against traditional top Four teams, Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal got it right against their London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, over the weekend and they would be hoping to sustain the tempo against United.
In their last three visits to Old Trafford, Arsenal have drawn once and lost twice.
It is yet to be seen if Mourinho’s men will use Arsenal to revive their season or it is Alex Iwobi and his teammates that would compound the woes of United.
