Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Thanks to a 3-1 win at Swansea City Manchester United rejoined the race for the title. The Red Devils impressed in the victory over the South Wales side, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a brace for Jose Mourinho’s troops. The Swedish superstar will have enough time to rest for the Arsenal game as he retired from international duty and, no doubt, he will pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Manchester United have already dropped a number of points in the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign, meaning that they will go for a win in Saturday’s football match. Arsenal played out a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby, but they extended their goal-scoring run and, taking everything into account, we predict that both teams will score in the Old Trafford showdown. A man to watch in the away team will be pacey Chilean ace Alexis Sanchez.
Highlighted Player (Anthony Martial):
Anthony Martial is a French football player born on the 5th of December 1995 in Lyonnais. Martial started playing for CO Les Ulis before Olympique Lyonnais picked him up. After only 1 season playing for Olympique AS Monaco signed Martial for 3 seasons. After 2 seasons Manchester United transferred Martial for 50 million euro which makes Martial the most expensive teenage football player in the world. Right after Martial’s transfer to Manchester United he made his debut for the French national team on the 4th of September 2015. Martial is known for his speed and agility and being an easy scoring striker. Despite not having a lot of experience on the highest level of football Martial is showing to be very secure about his qualities. After the first couple of games playing for AS Monaco, Manchester United and the French national team Martial is showing to be able to handle the pressure. Anthony Martial didn’t won any big prizes for any of the teams he played for. If the young French striker continues his current form he will be one of the biggest football players in the upcoming years.
Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title.
Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since.
Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
