MU is expected to beat Arsenal in the battle that has an important influence on the top 4 race. Defeating the “Gunners” at Old Trafford, Solskjaer’s army will have the opportunity to squeeze into the Champions League group.
MU did everything possible to defeat Arsenal. However, when the final whistle sounded, the result was that each team only earned 1 point. Solskjaer’s army started a better start, with Scott McTominay’s goal in the 45th minute.
The thought that with the goal at the end of the first half, “Reds” will play better in the second half. But no, the mistake of young player Tuanzebe has ruined the ambition of winning the red half of Manchester. And the score of 1-1 was maintained until the end of the match, in which many times MU seemed to have become a loser.
Hard to leave Old Trafford with 1 point, but that much could be considered a success with Arsenal. Because, after round 7, “Gunners” has 12 points, synonymous with fourth place. Unai Emery’s army is 9 points behind leaders Liverpool, Man City 5 points and third-ranked Leicester is only 2 points.
Meanwhile, MU dropped deeply – forever up to the 10th place – ie in the middle of the rankings. MU’s recent rounds are very bad, earning only 5 points in the last 5 matches. With 9 points after 7 matches, “Reds” are only 4 points lower than the relegation group. Anyway, the gap between MU and Arsenal’s fourth place is only 3 points, and the situation is not so bad with the Old Trafford team.
In the middle of next week, MU will march to the pitch of AZ Alkmaar within the framework of the second round of the Europa League group stage. After that, MU will have 2 very difficult rounds when they march to Newcastle’s stadium in the 8th round, before welcoming Liverpool at Old Trafford in the 9th round. Unless 6 points are won in both rounds, equal to No MU will not be able to return to the top 4 in the Premier League.
