Manchester Utd vs Arsenal

Manchester United expect new interim manager Ralf Rangnick to be on the stands as the side renew old rivalry with Arsenal tonight in the English Premier League at Old Trafford.

He is taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was sacked recently and with Michael Carrick in temporary charge.

The German is expected to turn around the fluctuating fortunes of United to steady the ship.

These two clubs dominated the game in England and were fierce rivals with fiery encounters during matches.

The managers then Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger often had spat from the news conferences to the dug out while fiery encounters ensued between players like Patrick Vieira and Roy Keane,.

But that seemed a long time ago as both sides are struggling in the past seasons and have allowed Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool to seize the initiative.

Meanwhile, Gabriel Martinelli should start against Man Utd, according to Jonathan Greening.He told MyBettingSites: “I like Gabriel Martinelli a lot. He was sharp when he came on at the weekend.

He took the finish for his goal superbly; it was a brilliant run with a composed finish, and he’d only been on the field for a few minutes.  “Martinelli had a terrible injury a few years ago. I’d watched him a lot before that and I thought he’s brilliant, energetic, can take players on and he can score goals.

It took him a while to get back from the injury, and he looked like he was lacking fitness prior to the weekend.  “Why shouldn’t Arsenal throw him in against Manchester United? He’s everything the United defenders don’t like. He’s pacey, they don’t like trickery or someone with his type of movement.  

“He’s got great potential at a good club with a manager who likes young technical players. He has excellent coaches who can teach him the game and the ins and the outs of his position.”The best thing is, he can play down the left and the right or even through the middle.  “The key for him will be staying injury free and getting a run of games. He could be a top player for Arsenal.” 

Ahead of the match, Arsenal’s utility player Bukayo Saka could miss out with injury he copped against Newcastle United on Sunday.
