Having been the best of enemies during the Sir Alex Ferguson versus Arsene Wenger years or should we say Roy Keane versus Patrick Vieira era, our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern think the Manchester United against Arsenal rivalry has gone soft somewhat.
Having previously seen Martin Keown jump on Ruud van Nistelrooy’s back, Ryan Giggs gallivanting down the Villa Park touchline all hairy chested and who could forget Pizzagate, encounters between the great English duo don’t seem to have been so memorable in recent times.
All of that said of course, both sets of supporters still hold a great sense of resentment against one another in the stands and in one of the classic north versus south encounters in English football, getting the big three points is still huge in terms of prestige and bragging rights around the office come Monday morning.
We saw in the summer transfer window that both sides were eager to land a world class forward but with strikers such a rare commodity this time around, both sides struggled to land reinforcements with the Red Devils eventually having to shell out a whopping £36 million for Anthony Martial.
Both clubs won’t like hearing it but Manchester City and Chelsea’s squad still seem to be better than both the Gunners’ and Red Devils’ ranks at the moment with some squad shortfalls seemingly still apparent.
With this in mind, we’ve devised a list of five Arsenal players who could be deemed a perfect fit for Manchester United.
All metaphorical of course because otherwise, it could all kick off here by the bar!
