As Manchester United travels down south to play Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday, manager Louis van Gaal is hoping to inflict more pain on the Gunners while cementing the Red Devils place at the top of the Premier League table.
Arsenal has won just two of their last five games, and are coming off a humiliating midweek 3-2 home loss to Greek side Olympiacos in the Champions league, and while Gunners chief Arsene Wenger should have been popping open the champagne to celebrate his 19th year in charge of the club, he has been busy reading his players the riot act following their dismal performance against a supposedly lesser opposition.
Add to this the fact that Arsenal has not beaten Manchester United at the Emirates since 2011 has led to LVG taunting Wenger by saying he is expecting another win.
The Dutchman said: “I think you have to believe always in this and I think the balance in our selection is much better than last year.
“But the most important thing is not only that I believe, but that the players are believing in that we can win the title – and WHEN we win at Arsenal, then the belief shall rise a lot.”
