We won at OT last season in the FA Cup against a strong Man United team. I dont see the difference between a league and FA Cup when both teams wanted to win and fielded strong teams. Its simply, if we can win at Old Trafford in the FA Cup, then we can win their in the league.When you haven't won a league game at a ground in nearly 10 years, and you posses zero bottle, then it's hard to be confident of us winning. We couldn't beat Chelsea when they were giving away points for fun, so I expect this to be similar. The fact is that in league games against them with Moyes and van Gaal as manager, we have P5, W1(Home this season), L2, and D2.Doesn't really matter does it?? He hasn't exactly been pulling up trees over there. I've just got that sickening feeling, the way we have been playing the last 2 months, that no matter who they put out there........Martial is not playing in United's match tonight as he has pulled a hamstring in the warm up. I don't know how bad is is or if he will play on Sunday.
I call this the 'spider syndrome'. I.e, the spider is more scared of you, than you are of it. Thus, Man United are more scared about facing us, than we are of facing them. Their fans are just as pessimistic, as some fans on here.
The bookies have us as favorites, and for the right reason - we are a better team, and depsite our patch form, United;s is much worse.
Its simply a must win game that I expect us to win. After the naive performance against Barcelona, Wengers needs to prove his worth by making sure the team wins. I can tolerate the naivity in Europe. but I will not tolerate losing to Man United when they are in this dire state
