Arsenal vs Man Utd preview

Back in September, Arsenal's hot streak seemed to be put to a screeching halt by Man Utd. The Gunners went into Old Trafford not having lost a game all season and were promptly thrashed three goals to one. While a potentially controversial VAR call potentially changed the course of the game by disallowing an early Gabriel Martinelli goal, in the end the result was still three dropped points.

It turned out that would be the last time Arsenal would drop three points in a Premier League game. Since the road loss to Man Utd the Gunners have not lost a single game — winning 10 and drawing two. They now lead the Premier League by a relatively decent eight-point margin with just over half the season to go.

But at the time it was Man Utd that felt like the ascendant side. The win over Arsenal was the fourth win in a row for Man Utd and it felt like a run of good form was guaranteed to continue. Instead, they stumbled, adding just four wins to go along with two losses and two draws prior to the World Cup break. Things seemed to hit a new low when Cristiano Ronaldo was released from the club during the World Cup.

This change turned out to be a breath of fresh air for Man Utd, and the Red Devils have been red hot ever since. Since play resumed on Boxing Day, Man Utd has won four games and not lost a single game. They now sit in third place — just eight points behind league-leading Arsenal.
