Arsenal draw luck MU in the top 4

The 1-1 draw in the first match in MU was taken in the 7th round of the Premier League, bringing Arsenal back to the top 4 teams in the rankings.


However, the “Gunners of London” still received a lot of public pressure because again encountered unsatisfactory results when marching to Old Trafford.

Scott McTominay opened the scoring for “Reds” with a beautiful free kick in the 45th minute. But in the 58th minute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang punished the mistake of young defender Axel Tuanzebe to help Unai Emery’s army avoid Old Trafford’s defeat at Old Trafford, thanks to the help of VAR (Video Assist Video Technology) determined he was not offside when scoring.

A point of departure from Manchester helped Arsenal have 12 points equal to rival London – West Ham but more than “Sledgehammer” on the sub-index to occupy fourth place in the English Premier League rankings when the round 7 closed. However, the sad historic milestones still fill Arsenal’s name after the difficult match with MU recently.

“Gunners of London” has extended 13 games in a row without winning host MU when guests at Old Trafford in the framework of the English Premier League for the past 13 years since they won this great rival 1-0 in September in 2006 (lost 8, drawn 5 matches afterwards).

Arsenal also could not beat MU in the league in 42 years when marching to the “Theater of Dreams” and have received a goal since this North London team won 2-1 here in 1977.

The outstanding individuals in the recent heroic battle of the two former British football kings have also made memorable milestones in their careers. Scott McTominay had the first goal at Old Trafford for MU after 25 times the Scottish midfielder played in all the arenas.

With Aubameyang, Gabon became the first person to score 7 goals for Arsenal after the first 7 rounds in a season in the Premier League since the case of Dutch legend Dennis Bergkamp 1997/98 season.

Another Arsenal player, Bukayo Saka – the British 18-year-old winger who became the youngest player in history to start the Premier League match in the confrontation between MU and the “Gunners”.

West Ham vs MU: Lanzini is very dangerous

United as a guest of West Ham in the 6th round of the Premier League and one of the biggest threats from the host is Manuel Lanzini.


Despite spending £45 million to buy Sebastien Haller and 25 million to buy Pablo Fornals, it is Manuel Lanzini’s return that is considered the most important factor that can help West Ham make a difference.

After missing most of last season due to a tendon injury and many other injuries, Lanzini is rediscovering his best form. He created 15 chances for his teammates after 5 games of the new season, only less than De Bruyne (19 chances) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (21).

In West Ham’s 4-1-4-1 diagram, Lanzini is one of two people playing the “No. 8” role with Mark Noble. Supported by his teammates, he was able to freely occupy gaps. Not good at tackling but Lanzini played hard, determined, ready to steal the opponent’s ball and launched sharp passes for teammates.

MU must be very wary whenever holding the ball in 1/3 of the field. West Ham this season holds an average of 47.4% of the ball, ready to let the opponent hold the ball more and then sneak the opportunity to exploit the opponent’s mistake. Before MU, Lanzini and Noble will find opportunities to steal the ball, along with Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko on the wings of the counter-attack.

Lanzini tends to have a wide kick near the edge, helping West Ham to create a large number of players near the boundary and thereby make it easier to move the ball upwards instead of being forced to cross the border, slowing the pace up the ball. Not only has a good mind when passing the ball, Lanzini also has the ability to move at high speed, helping him easily exploit the gaps exposed in the opponent’s defense.

Thanks to his ability to pass people in hand-to-hand situations, Lanzini makes the opponent tend to stand a meter away from him to guard instead of approaching. As a result, he has room to make a deadly pass or launch a cross on the bottom third of the opponent’s field. That’s exactly what happened when Lanzini assisted Anderson to score in the match against MU last season.

Another problem MU must be very wary of the threat from Lanzini is the fixed situation, especially the corner kick because the player of The Hammers is capable of dangerous free kick. Quick free kicks from the wings. Of the 15 chances Lanzini has created since the start of the season, nine come from live balls. The remaining 6 chances are created from dangerous free kicks into the local ban.

MU: Where is David Moyes’s first squad now?

Coach David Moyes has accepted an impossible task to replace Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester. Since then, MU has undergone three coaches and has yet to win the Premier League championship.


The departure of Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the saddest days in United’s history, although he has informed the club of his successor, coach David Moyes. At that time, David Moyes was considered the perfect choice for United’s manager. In contrast, MU has also put all his faith in him when deciding to sign a contract for 6 years.

Coach David Moyes opened his term at the Old Trafford Stadium by winning the Community Shield in 2013. However, MU’s results have gradually worsened over the length of the season. Finally, coach David Moyes was dismissed by MU after only 10 months of appointment.

Below is the fate of the first MU squad under Coach David Moyes.

David de Gea

The Spanish goalkeeper kept a clean sheet in the debut match of manager David Moyes, when United won 2-0 against Wigan in the 2013 Super Cup. Since then, David de Gea has played a role as the pillar and has over 300 appearances for MU.

Rafael

Joining MU in 2008, Rafael is considered the first choice at the right-back position before he dies. He signed a new 4-year contract in 2012 and was awarded the iconic No. 2 shirt. However, he was sold to Lyon by MU in 2015 for an undisclosed fee. Currently he is still in Lyon shirt and has a total of 120 appearances, scoring 2 goals and 11 assists.

Phil Jones

The British defender is still playing for MU. Although considered the future of MU defense, Phil Jones has failed to win the official position because of injury and deterioration.

Nemanja Vidic

David Moyes’s first season was also the last season of Nemanja Vidic with United. After winning 300 appearances for MU, the Serbian midfielder moved to Inter and competed in two years. Now he has retired and wants to take a coaching career. After retiring, Nemanja Vidic wants to become a coach.

Patrice Evra

Patrice Evra will be remembered as one of MU’s best left backs after joining Monaco in 2006. Like Nemanja Vidic, David Moyes’s first season is also Patrice Evra’s last season with MU. He then joined Juventus and returned to the Premier League to wear West Ham in 2018. In July 2019, he announced retirement.
