This might be the match of the week as Manchester United hosts Arsenal. Manchester United needs the win against Arsenal on Sunday. Anything less than a win and the Red Devils can kiss any chance of playing in the Champions League next year goodbye. The soccer match between Manchester United and Arsenal is scheduled for Sunday, February 28, 2016, at 9:05 a.m. at Old Trafford. The matchup will be televised on NBC Sports Network.
Manchester United hasn’t won three straight Premier League games since September. Fifth place Manchester United have only 2 victories in last 6 games. Manchester United tried their best against both Midtjylland and Shrewsbury last week, but didn’t look great in either match. The list of injuries is just too long right now for Manchester United. Without forward Wayne Mark Rooney, the offense doesn’t look good. If goalkeeper David De Gea can’t play in this one, there could be issues in this next match.
Arsenal might not be in great form, however the injury front is improving. Santiago Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere will still be out for at least a couple more weeks. Winger Mesut Ozil and striker Olivier Giroud should have a nice day up front against a beaten up Manchester United. We think the sight of a wounded Manchester United team is going to set Arsenal on the right track. This could end up being the difference on the road.
