Mikel Arteta reveals what bothers him about facing Manchester United

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has revealed one of the qualities in Manchester United that he needs to be careful with.

The Gunners will host Man United on Sunday in the Premier League and will have the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table.

Both teams are in great form, although Manchester United’s nine-match winning run met it’s end on Wednesday when they played out a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils will look to bounce back to winning ways on Sunday but it’s obvious that the game is complex for both teams.

United won the reverse fixture 3-1 at Old Trafford despite not having the entire control of the game and that’s one of the qualities in this Manchester United team that gives Arteta some headache.

Speaking ahead of the showdown on Sunday, Arteta said: “One of the qualities of Manchester United [is] when you are in control of the match, the game goes away from you because they have so much individual talent and good organisation. We have to be at our best on Sunday.”

On the job Erik ten Hag has done at Manchester United so far, the Arsenal manager added: “Really impressive. He’s [Ten Hag] turned things around pretty quickly.

“I think he’s implemented a clear way of playing, and the players have bought into it, credit to him and the coaching staff.”
