Paul Pogba Deems Man United vs. Arsenal “a big one”



Boasting a plethora of major storylines, Arsenal at Manchester United is no doubt the headliner fixture in the Premier League this weekend. Or as United midfielder Paul Pogba says “it’s a big one.” Tomorrow will see Arsene Wenger make his final trip to Old Trafford as Arsenal boss, and with that hopes he will have a peaceful end to his personal rivalry with United manager Jose Mourinho.

On the other side, Mourinho expressed his regrets about his past rows with Wenger, and legitimately believes the two men can somehow become friends someday. Then you have the struggling Alexis Sanchez facing his former team for the first time.

On top of all that, both sides will approach this match with one eye on the game/league standings and the other eye on their cup competitions/securing a trophy this season.

United are looking to hold off Liverpool and finish runner-up to Manchester City this season while at the same time, making sure they stay healthy and right for the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 19. For Arsenal, they are trying to fend off Burnley and lock down sixth place, which would at least give them Europa League qualification next season.

“It’s a big one. We need points. They have a big game against Atletico so maybe that might help us if they are a bit tired,” Paul Pogba said in an interview with MUTV.

“We know it’s going to be a hard game, it was a very hard game against them earlier in the season. But we had a very good team performance and David was amazing.

“We need that again and we need everybody to be at their best because when that happens it moves the team up. We’ve been great in the last game with the team performance and against the top teams you always have to produce that.”
