    Excellent work Andrew as usual.
    A penalty for Arsenal looks almost impossible with Marriner over the last years. But that is not exclusively down to Marriner on his own as last season we almost got none.

    The importance of this game to both Arsenal and Man Utd FCs is so much and as such Mr Mariner and his 2 assistants including the 4th official MUST jettison any temptation by any of them to be partial in this game against Arsenal or Man Utd during the playing of the match.

    Wrong or inappropriate decision making by any of the match officials during this big match will be tantamount to bringing the PL into disrupt. And should this happens both Arsenal and Man Utd will not accept any flagrant misinterpretation or abuse of the rules & laws governing the game by Mr Mariner and his 2 assistants. Therefore, I implore Mr Mariner and his assistants to raise their heads above waters and do their jobs correctly to the letter.

    No news yet or latest update on Sanchez fitness by Le Prof to know if Sanchez is passed fit to play for us tomorrow or not. But let’s assumed he’s fit to play which I believe he will be. And if Walcott has no any hamstring alert scares, our 1st team starts which have been conformly patterned by Le Prof as we all know them will start the Man U game. And this is very good as this patterning can only mean stability in our 1st team starts and this is confidence building in the rank & file of our patterned starters save 2 unavailable changes done to them.

    My starts, bench & final scores:
    Cech
    Jenko Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
    LeCoq Xhaka
    Walcott Ozil Iwobi
    Sanchez.

    My bench:
    Ospina Niles Gabriel Gibbs Ramsey Oxchambo Giroud.

    Final scores:
    Man Utd 0-3 Arsenal.

    And less I forget, I am expecting the Gunners to play this match with absolute confidence as soon as they step on the Old Trafford, the Red Devils’ playing dungeon field to play. And 1st and foremost bind all the arch Red Devils in the rank & file of the Red Devils team Army which Jose Mourinho will send out to confront them they the Gunners in this battle for all 3 points that could worth 6 later on if gotten. And shouldn’t forget to cast all the arch Red Devils away after bidding them into that secret bottomless pit that is only known to them they the Gunners and not to any one else.

    By the way, who told Real Madrid that Arsenal will not mind selling Aaron Ramsey in the coming January window? And for a paltry sum of £25m? Or has Ramsey secretly informed Madrid that he will force his way out of Arsenal if they are ready to sign him and increase his weekly pay packet from the £90k/w he’s currently earning at Arsenal according to report, to whateve?. And also guarantee him a starting role in Madrid’s 1st team?

    Although Ancelotti managed Real Madrid did sell Ozil to us and he didn’t seek for any Gunner from Arsenal in retrospect before he left Madrid. Otherwise, Arsenal might have considered doing him and Madrid a favour for the earlier favour Madrid did to us.

    However, the now Zinedine Zidane’s managed Real Madrid has refused to continue with the cordial transfer relationship that came into existence between Arsenal and R Madrid during Ancelotti’s regime at Madrid. But instead jettisoned it by bluntly refusing to obliged Arsenal when they wanted their Alvaro Morata in the summer despite Arsenal were willing to meet Madrid’s possible reasonable asking price.

    One good turn deserves another. Had Zidane obliged Arsenal by selling Morata to us, of course Le Prof will feel heavy in his heart to refuse Zidane but oblige him with Ramsey to partner Bale as Zidane wants it. But not at that ridiculous proposed transfer fee of £25m being reported in the media. Maybe Arsenal will consider taking £45-50m before they allow Ramsey to move on.

    But it’s not late, if Madrid are ready to sell Morata to us, but that depends if Le Prof still wants him, Madrid may wish to do a Morata exchange move to Arsenal plus cash payment deal for them to have Ramsey.

    I have to admit to questioning the facts of this article and even checked elsewhere.

    Michael Oliver………..31 years old!! He must worry a hell of a lot cos he looks about 50!!

    I do quake in my booties when I hear we’re playing Marriner. Especially against “big” teams.

    Remember the 1st half hour at South Fulham? I do.
    That’s Andre’s MO.

    I wonder what Dogface would make of the appointment! (Hope all’s well DF. I miss you, and wish you & yours well).

    Great report, ref team.

    Hope FIF is not right about this ref and Utd, but as ever I wish him and his officials a good game , and an improvement in our last couple of officials in the EPL…..and let’s face it, that is not asking a lot
    But I fear the worst in this game, a dodgy red card/ penalty would not surprise me. Coq , Xhaka, kos, mustaphi you have been warned

    So, Rooney to get sent off today. Still fuming at the “nearly leg breaker tackle he pulled on Sagna” ages ago without any card or caution.

    Well i can hope, but no, I want Arsenal to beat them with all their 11 players on field.

    Come on Arsenal, it’s been building up for a while now, time to put them to bed for the new age.

    I just can’t trust Marriner ever since he sent off Gibbs wrongly against Chelsea a few years ago! But let’s go Gunners! Expecting a physical and defensive game today, hope we are too quick for them!
