Match start: 18:30 (GMT+1)
Three most titled clubs in the history of English football are MU (20 titles), Liverpool (18) and Arsenal (13). That is why, every new battle of three historical grandees is considered to have the status of a national derby.
The forthcoming derby at London Emirates is extremely important for both teams. Prior to new 15 round the gunners and the Mancunians are included into the TOP 4 best clubs of the season:
Manchester City: 40, MU – 32, Chelsea – 29, Arsenal – 28, Liverpool – 26;
Arsenal London (the head coach Arsène Wenger)
Three last matches of the calendar season the Gunners had won over Tottenham (2:0), Burnley (1:0), Huddersfield (5:0). But if the victory over Burnley was gained only due to very doubtful penalty shot that was given by the match’s referee during the injured time, then during the last meeting against the debutant the advantage of the team of Arsène Wenger was obvious and was presented by 5 unanswered goals. The double was scored by the French center forward of the hosts Olivier Giroud.
Man United (the head coach José Mourinho)
The grandee from Manchester has also spent very good calendar season. United in Watford at Vicarage Road had scored 4 goals to the gates of Watford football club having missed only two (2:4).
After every new victory the head coach of MU José Mourinho notes that his team wants to fight against Manchester City for the champion’s title. But also the only leader of the English season is gained 3 points in every new round.
And that is why the current 8 matches distance between the teams Josep Guardiola and José Mourinho is constant. By the main hope the coaching staff of MU has put on two forthcoming derbies in Manchester (on the 10th of December and on the 7th of April).
According to the experts the forthcoming battle at Emirates Stadium has no bright favorite. Both the Gunners and the Mancunians are able to win. And that is why it would be wise to forget about the figures of main outcomes and to bet on scored goals by both teams.
