Mikel Arteta’s former player and a new manager at Arsenal continue as the Gunners man united manager kick-off 2020 at home to Manchester United.
Mikel took over at Arsenal last week, replacing temporary manager Freddie Ljungberg who had stepped in after Spanish coach Unai Emery‘s sacking in November 2019. Arteta’s performance has so faraway seen his side arsenal win just one point from two matches, drawing with Bournemouth vs. Arsenal(1-1) before losing to Arsenal vs. Chelsea (1-2).
Those results have extended Arsenal’s poor record to just one win from the last 12 Premier League matches and seen the gunners drop to 12th place on the table.
United had a likewise slow beginning to the 2019/20 campaign but have turned things around to sit fifth, just four points behind 4th-placed Chelsea. Man United have lost just one point of their past nine Premier League matches and have a very impressive performance against Best Six sides of this season.
