With Chelsea’s last gasp winner against Tottenham and a massive clash against the Stamford Bridge outfit looming next week, today’s game has taken on renewed importance.

Arsenal themselves are out of the title race and essentially have nothing to play for except pride, pride that has been wounded and battered in the last few months seeing them amass a record of 1 win in 9 games.

Following the game against Schalke during the week Sir Alex has reshuffled the deck, resting Giggs as he said he would with Anderson starting beside Carrick.

Starting XI: van der Sarr, Fabio, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra, Nani, Park, Carrick, Anderson, Rooney, Hernandez

Subs:¬†Kuszczak, Owen, Berba, Smalling, O’Shea, Evans, Valencia

    Afraid that the two wrong decisions at Stamford Bitch swung it in Chelseas favour. We will lose this one today and it will all be down to what we do against Chelsea in a weeks time.
    Nani preferred to Valencia will be our downfall today as Nani stops the flow of the game and lacks a football brain.

      Yet more negativity Sir!
      Getting very boring mate, do you ever think we won’t lose?

      “Swung it in chelsea’s favour”… Are you joking?? They have to rely on United losing twice… including today to a team united have only lost to once in the last 12 matches.
      Nani has an astonishing 9 goals and 18 assists this campaign. He’s the reason United are out in front… And taking into account the form of the sides in the premiership at the moment; it makes your comment even more absurd.

    I wont agree with you swede , Nani is always capable of doing amazing things against Arsenal and you will see that by yourself hopefully:)
