Next up in the league, Arsenal travel to Manchester United as they look to put pressure on the league leaders.

While Manchester United have made a comparatively slow start to the season and have been slightly hit and miss, it still represents a big challenge for Arsene Wenger, as Mourinho is renowned for his tactics in these games.

We look at three ways that Arsenal can ensure a victory at Old Trafford this Saturday:

Play On The Counter Attack

As seen recently in their defeat to Fenerbahce, this Manchester United team are extremely vulnerable to the counter attack against pacey players. Perhaps it is because they’re not used to playing on the front foot, but this represents an excellent opportunity for Arsene Wenger.

With the pressure on Manchester United playing at home, this may force Mourinho to be a little bit more adventurous. It is one thing going to Anfield and setting up to defend, but if he does this at home to Arsenal it simply won’t be tolerated by the fans at Old Trafford.

On the counter attack, Arsenal are blessed with quick players capable of passing incisively, cutting opposition defences to shreds. And with space to play into, it is difficult to see the Manchester United defence living with the Arsenal attack.
