Arsenal v Manchester United

  • Bjorn Borg won 11 Grand Slam titles

Paul Pogba insists he will be happy to let Ashley Young take Manchester United's free kicks against Arsenal, assuming he is feeling confident enough to try his luck again.

'To be honest, I won the foul and he just came and took the ball straight away, ' Pogba told Manchester United's official website.

"He is a big player for them and if he is not there I would say it is good for us".

Mourinho has yet to win an away game against any top-six rivals since taking charge at Old Trafford, with United's seven games at Chelsea, Arsenal, City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur yielding three points and one goal.

The United manager, meanwhile, could be without Nemanja Matic for the match at Arsenal, after the midfielder asked to be substituted in the second half of Tuesday's 4-2 win at Watford with a muscle injury. Four points and two places separate the fierce rivals but, despite their lowlier league position, Arsenal are favourites given their home advantage and the fact they haven't lost to United during Mourinho's reign.

"It doesn't matter what comes after, it doesn't matter what happened before".

In fact, should the north London club triumph it would be the first time in Premier League history that they have won three consecutive home matches against United.

It's just the game, it's Arsenal, we don't think about how many points behind - just Arsenal. United have the stronger defence and more reliable midfield, but Arsenal have a thrilling attack thanks to two truly world-class players.

"When we have the ball we'll attack with 11 players - and when Arsenal have the ball we will defend with 11".

He said: "I would always try to play the best possible team, even if the Champions League match was a must-win".

Marouane Fellaini (muscular), Eric Bailly (groin/hip), Phil Jones (thigh) and Michael Carrick (heart condition) are also missing for the match.

Dunphy told Game On on RTE 2fm that he was impressed by the Gunners in their 2-0 victory over Spurs a fortnight ago and expects a similar display to produce a similar result.
