Pogba: Arsenal Lacazette absence good for Man Utd

Nemanja Matic caused panic for Manchester United fans when he went off injured against Watford, and with manager Jose Mourinho coming out after the game and claiming his star man would not go off injured or leave the field unless it was serious, things looked worrying for the midfielder.

The Frenchman will line up against the Gunners when the two sides meet tomorrow evening, hoping to close the eight point gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Wayne Rooney (3), Ashley Young (2) and one each from Ji-Sung Park, Nani and Danny Welbeck did the damage, with Theo Walcott and a late consolation from soon to be United player Robin Van Persie giving the scoreline the merest modicum of respectability.

"I can see Arsenal scoring goals against United and I find it harder to believe that United will score goals against them".

"It could do if Arsenal play as good as they did against Spurs in the north London derby a couple of weeks ago".

Then again, Mourinho has earned the right to lord it over his French rival with only two defeats in 17 matches against Wenger.

Possibly the match which provides one of the most unforgettable moments and scenes in Premier League history.

The 24-year-old recently returned to the United side and his comeback has coincided with an upturn in form for Jose Mourinho's side.

A win could lift the hosts to within a point of the Red Devils while United need to get all three points to keep up the pressure on their noisy neighbours.

In United's seven away games against the "top six" teams since Mourinho took charge at the start of last season, United have scored one goal, lost four times and haven't won a single game with three 0-0 draws the highlights. He limped off with a muscle complaint against Watford and he could join Marouane Fellaini, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Michael Carrick on the sidelines.
