Arsenal: Hell hath no fury like a Manchester United scorned



Arsenal: Hell hath no fury like a Manchester United scorned

Will History yet again go against Arsenal at Old Trafford?

Breathe, sigh and breathe again, today is the day Arsenal faces Manchester United at Old Trafford, and it could perhaps be the day the Gunners lose complete grasp of the premier league title.

A lot of fears and a lot of pressure faces the North London side as they visit the famous Old Trafford in what stands their penultimate game of the season. Sitting currently 2nd in the premier league table, Arsenal can get over the top placed team, Manchester City though with a game played ahead, if they get a positive result against Manchester United.

However, therein lies the philosophical problem.

The Red Devils despite having a mixed season in the current 2023/24 campaign, still pose a serious challenge that could derail whatever dreams Mikel Arteta or Arsenal hold dear this season even before it reaches the final match day.

Of all Manchester United’s failings this season, their defeat of Liverpool in the FA Cup and twice holding a formidable Merseyside Reds team to a draw will remain one of the highlights of what they can be capable of if their team turns up.

Currently sitting in 8th place in the premier league table, Manchester United in the face of glory and shame, will still aim with at least one final push to make it to the European spots no matter how impossible the papers may make it seem. The Red Devils having a final say on how the premier league title ends this season will put Erik ten Hag’s era into the Golden lights of English League history.

For Arsenal however, a defeat or any result other than a win against Manchester United, will mark a dark day in Arsenal’s history yet again. The Gunners have so much to fight for and to lose at the moment aside pride or bragging rights. A 20-year barren run lingers for Arsenal in their current English Football history. Can they change fate and turn their season around?

Well, contrary to the saying that says ‘Destiny lies in thy hands’, the North London side’s destiny does not lie in theirs’ however the illusion makes it seem. Their fate lies in the hands of Manchester City and a Manchester United who feel their defeat earlier in the season to Arsenal at the Emirates was unfair to them.

And of course, going into the game comes at a worse time for the Gunners who will experience a Manchester United who were scorned by a 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace last Monday.
