Arsenal derby win over Tottenham leaves Manchester United fans worried


In 2011, Manchester United embarrassed Arsenal at Old Trafford with a famous 8-2 victory.

As the same fixture approaches seven years on, United fans fear being on the wrong end of a humiliation when the Gunners visit in the Premier League.

United were poor in the 2-2 draw at Southampton, needing Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera goals to recover from a 2-goal deficit.

Injuries to Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling meant a makeshift defence at Southampton consisting of Phil Jones, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay. Ashley Young will also miss the Arsenal game thanks to a late booking at St Mary’s.

Arsenal, meanwhile, were in imperious form in the North London Derby on Sunday, beating Tottenham 4-2 in a performance full of character, desire and passion.

The results moved Unai Emery’s side up to fourth in the table, eight points above United after 14 games, and fans were fearful that the gap could increase after the midweek round of fixtures if both sides were to replicate their performances over the weekend.
