Neville: Arsenal to attack from the start
Man United skipper Gary Neville believes Arsenal will attack United from the kickoff till the end of today game. He thinks the game will be a tough test for us.
He told manutd.com: “We’ve had some great games against them over the years and last season especially. We’re very aware of their qualities – they’ve got a good history and play good football like us. So they’re always great games and it should be another on Saturday.
“There’s always been good football and goals whenever we’ve played each other. There’s been the odd 1-0 here and there, but generally there have been a few goals with open, attacking football.”
Gary Neville also suggests that United should improve their record against the top four this season. Manchester United could only collect five points from Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal games last season.
“Yes, some seasons we’ve won those games and lost the league and other times we’ve lost those matches and won it. Last season for instance we lost twice to Liverpool, drew against Arsenal at home, lost away at the Emirates and drew away at Chelsea.” Neville told manutd.com.
“So they didn’t play too much importance last season. It’s about being consistent over the whole campaign, but obviously if you can take points off your major rivals it can only be good, especially when the games are later on in the season. If the matches are early you have at least got time to recover, but as we’ve seen winning them doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to win the league. Saying that, of course, we want a good result on Saturday.”
