In the Football Transfer Tavern, we have been thinking about how both Manchester United and Arsenal have been under par in recent years. Neither side has won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson left United, indicating a problem for both English titans.
They have had varying problems, as the Gunners’ long-serving manager Arsene Wenger has been unable to revolutionise his approach enough to lead the club to a league title.
United, meanwhile, have so far failed in their attempts to bring in a manager and players capable of winning the Premier League.
The Red Devils will be determined to figure out ways to make up for their previous shortcomings and will feel that they will be able to to do so on their own.
Still, it could help them along the way if they were to look at their rivals.
In fact, the North London giants could serve as both an inspiration and a warning to the Manchester giants in equal measure.
Do you agree with these picks and what do you think Manchester United need to learn? Let us know.
