The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are optimistic about this weekend’s clash against Man Utd…
Typically, games between the two are often explosive and highly competitive – but this game has a touch of added significance.
For the first time, Jose Mourinho will face Arsenal from the Man Utd dugout – and he will be looking to reignite his rivalry with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
The pair have a long and storied history together, stretching back to Mourinho’s first spell with Chelsea – and it came to blows during the Portuguese’s second tenure with the London giants.
Arsene Wenger will no doubt be looking forward to getting one-up his arch rival, but the stats do not make good reading for the Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern.
As per OptaJoe on Twitter, Arsene Wenger has yet to win any of his 11 Premier League games against Jose Mourinho, with a record of 6 draws and 5 defeats.

This has made the Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern very nervous. Arsenal have looked very good this season, but they fear that Mourinho’s Wenger curse may strike once again.
Our landlord is backing Wenger to turn it around, though – especially considering how poor Man Utd have been this season.
