Arsenal suffered a shock defeat against Swansea as their recent, imperious run of form came to a juddering halt.
Swansea are a decent team of course but there did appear to be a lack of urgency about Arsenal, who may have let a little complacency creep in after such a fine run.
Perhaps the most telling part of the game was that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger names the same side for the fifth consecutive game. That’s the first time in 20 years that this has happened.
So it’s a largely settled side and, despite the setback at The Emirates, perhaps we should expect Wenger to stick with his guns for a tough trip to Old Trafford. But we think a few changes would freshen things up.
United have all but qualified for The Champions League but they will be desperate to win this one in an attempt to avoid fourth spot and a tricky qualifying match early season.
So Arsenal will need to be on their game to avoid a second defeat. But they did outplay United at Old Trafford earlier this season so the omens are good.
Our one big change to the side is to oust Ozil, who has done very little since his spectacular free kick against Liverpool. Our side is more solid with the pace of Walcott to make both of Arsenal’s flank really dangerous.
