Arsenal manager Unai Emery is eager to win the contest when his team facesManchester United in the 30th week of the English Premier League at Emirates Stadium on Sunday. However, the hope is certainly not to be obtained in an easy way.
Arsenal and Manchester United last met on January 26 at the FA Cup. At that time, Arsenal were humiliated 1-3 by Paul Pogba and colleagues infront of their own supporters.
Moreover, the Red Devils are in high confidence after beating Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the 2018/19 Champions League Round of 16 stage. The mentality of the Manchester United players are now considered necessary to watch out for North London forces.
"We know that on Sunday there is a difficult match. For everyone, the match will run amazingly with very good players," said Unai Emery.
"We will play at home, we need hard work from each player and work tactically like a team. However, I am also wary of Manchester United with every player, who has enormous confidence after beating PSG," he continued.
However, with the support of loyal supporters, the Spanish coach hopes to achieve sweet results against Manchester United.
"With our supporters, we want to create a great atmosphere, a positive atmosphere, and help us to provide the best support in the match," said the former PSG coach.
It's just that, Arsenal has a less good record when they meet Manchester United. Of the 110 meetings, the Gunners only won 34 times, 29 times ended in a draw, and 47 others matches have ended in a victory for the Red Devils.
