Arsenal Team News, Updates and Facts
Arsenal Team News
Mikel Arteta will have an even bigger injury list now as Callum Chambers was added to the likes of Sead Kolasinac, Gabriel Martinelli, Hector Bellerin, Dani Ceballos, Rob Holding, Sokratis, and Kieran Tierney during Sunday’s loss to the Blues at the Emirates.
Arsenal Key Man
Right now, it’s hard to see where the quality is going to come from in regards to the Gunners besides Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He scored again, and looked to have set them on their way over Chelsea on Sunday, making it 13 goals on the season in the PL and giving his team a bit of hope. Elsewhere, a thorough examination of Bernd Leno has to be made here. He made one huge error in their loss to the Blues, and he didn’t do tremendously well on the second goal, either, leading you to wonder if he’s the right choice in goal.

Manchester United Team News, Updates and Facts
Man United Team News
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keeps on having defensive injuries, meaning that Axel Tuanzebe, Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly, and Tim Fosu-Mensah remain out. Scott McTominay is also out in the midfield area.
Man United Key Man
Two games, two goals for Anthony Martial, and two wins for United. It doesn’t get a whole lot better for the Frenchman or for United, and they will know they need him to strike for them if they are to keep up this form and slowly climb up the table to where they want to go. His fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba is another to keep an eye on. He was not even in the squad on Saturday, so if he’s fit to play he’ll be fresh and ready to bring his best to proceedings.
Man United Team Form
