The beginning of a remarkable demise for Manchester United was the 0-3 defeat against Arsenal in October. As you'd expect, especially in England, the manager is the one taking all the flak, and on this occasion, rightly so. To be frank, Louis Van Gaal and Manchester United were never made for each other.

The Gunners trail the Foxes by five points in the standings heading into this meeting but they do boast the claim as one of the only two teams to hand Leicester City a defeat this season from when they won a 5-2 decision back in September.

Arsenal will receive big boost when Santi Cazorla returns from injury

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil are Arsenal's big guns (I'd also probably add Petr Cech as well), there is no denying that. The dynamic offensive duo are major talents and have been brilliant during the current campaign. Alexis has netted 10 total goals on the season, despite missing a chunk of games due to a knee injury and Özil is within shouting distance of breaking former Gunner Thierry Henry's Premier League season assist record.
