Arsenal v Manchester United the teams and the home v away form

By Bulldog Drummond

I’m having to write this some way in advance of the match, because of my convoluted travel arrangements to the game, but even though there will have been a result on saturday evening after my writing of these notes the general point still applies.

While Arsenal and Manchester United remain one point apart in the league, when we turn to looking at Arsenal at home and Manchester United away a different picture emerges

Here is Arsenal at home; yes Liverpool has a game in hand but we are streets ahead of Chelsea and Man United.

Pos Team Pld W D L GF GA GD Pts
1 Manchester City 16 15 0 1 53 12 41 45
2 Liverpool 14 12 2 0 40 7 33 38
3 Arsenal 15 12 2 1 35 12 23 38
4 Chelsea 14 9 4 1 28 9 19 31
5 Manchester United 14 8 5 1 28 18 10 29

However Manchester United away are no mean slouches

Pos Team Pld W D L GF GA GD Pts
1 Tottenham Hotspur 16 11 0 5 32 19 13 33
2 Liverpool 15 9 5 1 24 8 16 32
3 Manchester City 14 9 2 3 26 9 17 29
4 Manchester United 15 9 2 4 30 20 10 29
5 Chelsea 14 8 1 5 21 21 0 25
6 Crystal Palace 15 6 2 7 25 24 1 20
7 Watford 16 5 5 6 23 25 -2 20
8 Arsenal 14 5 4 5 26 27 -1 19

But what we can notice is their goal difference is only plus 10 away from home against our plus 23 which gives hope to Arsenal.

This year’s league matches reveal

Date Game Res Score
01 Jan 2019 Arsenal v Fulham W 4-1
12 Jan 2019 West Ham United v Arsenal L 1-0
19 Jan 2019 Arsenal v Chelsea W 2-0
29 Jan 2019 Arsenal v Cardiff City W 2-1
03 Feb 2019 Manchester City v Arsenal L 3-1
09 Feb 2019 Huddersfield Town v Arsenal W 1-2
24 Feb 2019 Arsenal v Southampton W 2-0
27 Feb 2019 Arsenal v AFC Bournemouth W 5-1
02 Mar 2019 Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal D 1-1

That is six wins, two defeats and a draw – not a bad run.   For Manchester United it has been…

02 Jan 2019 Newcastle United v Manchester United W 0-2
13 Jan 2019 Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United W 0-1
19 Jan 2019 Manchester United v Brighton and Hove Albion W 2-1
29 Jan 2019 Manchester United v Burnley D 2-2
03 Feb 2019 Leicester City v Manchester United W 0-1
09 Feb 2019 Fulham v Manchester United W 0-3
24 Feb 2019 Manchester United v Liverpool D 0-0
27 Feb 2019 Crystal Palace v Manchester United W 1-3
02 Mar 2019 Manchester United v Southampton W 3-2

With just two draws among the wins, their results under the new management has been senstational, and includes a perfect away record in the league – which should be a warning to Arsenal given the recent defeat to them in the cup.  Indeed Manchester United’s last two games at Arsenal Stadium have resulted in 3-1 victories.

But against that we are unbeaten in the last 14 home league games winning the last eight.

  • A draw today Will feel like a win

  • Sue

    I didn’t see Mkhi in the training pictures yesterday… was hoping he’d play
    I’m a little nervous about the match

  • Gord

    Oliver sure had to tilt the pitch to get Chel$ea that tying goal.

    Wolves apparently had 14 fouls to 8 of Chel$ea, so Wolves needed 4 yellows to 1 of Chel$ea. There was a single treatment in the game, to a Wolves player.

    I would have been happier if Chel$ea would have lost. 🙂


    Sokratis Koscielny Monreal
    Maitland_niles Ramsey Xhaka Kolasinac
    Lacazette Aubameyang

    Beach: Cech Elneny, Iwobi, Mustafi, Suarez, Guendouzi, Nketiah


  • ARSENAL 13

    Xhaka bomb…. yyyeeeeaaahhhhh

  • Gord

    How to go Xhaka, assist to Lacazette


  • GoingGoingGooner

    Quite a swerve on that ball

  • ARSENAL 13

    What! Lukaku thinks hez Ozil!!!…

    Bounce shots….don’t even try.

  • ARSENAL 13

    Ok…not offside there Ozil.

    Niles Niles Niles

    Come on ARSENAL

  • ARSENAL 13

    Smalling climbing over Kolasinac…no foul!!!

  • Gord

    No surprise to see Arsenal get the first card.


  • ARSENAL 13

    Controlled by the hand….no foul!!!!

  • Gord

    Another treatment to an Arsenal player. Sure, it’s in the laws, that you can kick Arsenal anytime you want to. No problem.


  • Menace

    The Rashford tackle that injured Xhaka was a red card offence. The tackles from behind that Moss the corrupt allows is sinful.

    Lukaku & Pogba use brute force and fall like pussies when touched. Sokratis was booked for an attempted tackle that did not make contact yet Rashford almost destroys Xhaka’s career & gets nothing. In fact there was an advantage to be played that Moss the corrupt ignored.

  • Menace

    Lukaku has a whole leg offside but then the Laws for Arsenal say its on side if it is an opportunity for United.

    Beglin the commentator is an absolute biased moron.

  • ARSENAL 13

    No yellow for Pogba!!!!

  • Menace

    wtf was that Moss – right in front of you and no card!!!

  • Menace

    pigmob laughing with their paymasters in the United dugout – shameless corruption.

  • ARSENAL 13

    Such a soft penalty we got…

    What an incompetent referee

  • ARSENAL 13


    Finally we get one.
    Never evens out though…

    Come on ARSENAL

  • WalterBroeckx

    there is a live match report by the way

  • Menace

    @Josif laca one on one with deGea and he uses the inside of the boot & the ball spins away from goal. The outside of the boot (same foot) would have been a goal.

  • Gord

    We got another penalty?

    How to go putting that spot kick in the net PEA!

  • Gord

    I see that Arsenal has now required 3 treatments this game. Just another day of kick Arsenal all over the park.


  • GoingGoingGooner

    That’s called grinding out a result
