United's next game after the Arsenal assignment is the Champions League home game against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday, when the Reds only need to avoid a heavy defeat to progress.
"He was brought in to score goals in the games which United were drawing last season".
One player who could get a chance to impress Jose Mourinho with Matic set to miss the game is Ander Herrera, with the player the key cog in the midfield last season, only to see his place in the side diminished after the Chelsea man arrived. We don't think how many points we are in front of them, how many points we are behind the leader.
"It could do if Arsenal play as good as they did against Spurs in the north London derby a couple of weeks ago".
I am anticipating an interesting clash with goals on both ends, as each team has excellent forwards, so I would be surprised if they fail to produce goals on this one.
Mourinho added: "When we have the ball, we are going to attack with 11 players because even the goalkeeper needs to know what to do when we have the ball".
"I play a game at a time and I think it's the way to do it", he said. Everybody has to defend and attack, especially in modern football, so for me you can say what you want.
In United's seven away games against the "top six" teams since Mourinho took charge at the start of last season, United have scored one goal, lost four times and haven't won a single game with three 0-0 draws the highlights.
"I remember big matches". Mourinho will be without the midfielder Michael Carrick who is out with a calf injury and will not feature on Saturday, while the centre-back Eric Bailly is still struggling with a knock and will probably be unavailable for this tilt. If there is a way to get at Arsenal and Manchester City then it is by really going at their defences.
