Pogba: Arsenal Lacazette absence good for Man Utd

02 December 2017

Paul Pogba says he wants to be involved in all of Manchester United's games, despite not being 100 per cent fit. I just expect us to be ready to recover now [after Wednesday's win over Huddersfield Town]. Giroud, Sanchez, Ozil, and Ramsey will be the players to watch for the hosts as they are in good form at the moment and any of them could turn out to be a match victor.

Since taking over at Old Trafford in May 2016, former Chelsea manager Mourinho has failed to win any of his seven away Premier League matches against the rest of last season's final top six -- Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal.

Matic, who arrived at Old Trafford from Chelsea at the start of the season, was substituted after 55 minutes of United's 4-2 win at Watford in mid-week with Mourinho saying the Serbia global had a muscular problem.

Asked by reporters if that would affect his selection plans for this weekend, Mourinho replied: "I think I would always try to play the best possible team, even if the Champions League match was a must-win match".

However, he has rejected claims that he is too conservative with his tactics in big away matches.

"When we have the ball we'll attack with 11 players - and when Arsenal have the ball we will defend with 11". United have the stronger defence and more reliable midfield, but Arsenal have a thrilling attack thanks to two truly world-class players.

Manchester United played 22 games in this campaign, recording 16 victories, two draws, and four losses, with a goal difference of 49:13, which is 2.81 goals per contest on average.

Mourinho also confirmed defenders Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are not available for selection after missing their last three league matches due to injury.
