Arsenal summer signing Thomas Partey has revealed that the Gunners will beat Manchester United if they stick to their plans, battle for points and put a lot of pressure on the Red Devils.
Man United are back in Premier League action when they take on Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday for the first time this season.
Manchester United are in their last four matches in all competitions, including their 5-0 win over RB Leipzig at home in the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have been poor in recent weeks, losing two Premier League matches in a row. Their performances in the Europa League, like their 3-0 win over Dundalk, have seen them endured mixed performances this season.
Despite the Gunners’ recent blip of form, Partey, who moved to the Emirates Stadium from Atletico Madrid in the summer, believes his side can get a win over the Red Devils.
‘Manchester United are a great team with great players and important players,’ Partey told Arsenal’s official website.
‘If we do our work well, if we go in and fight for points, if we put a lot of pressure on them, we’ll be able to win.’
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is also eying a win at the Theatre of Dreams after his side’s 3-0 triumph over Dundalk in the Europa League.
‘After losing the way we lost against Leicester, it was painful at home and took us a few days to digest that defeat,’ Mikel Arteta told BT Sport after Dundalk win.
‘But you have to react straightaway with a win, with this type of attitude and let’s get ready.
‘We go to Old Trafford and we try to win again.’
