Arsene Wenger: Arsenal are confident about Man United game

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is not concerned by his side’s recent record at Old Trafford ahead of the FA Cup quarter-final clash between the two sides on Monday.

The Gunners have not won at Man United since a strike from Emmanuel Adebayor secured a 1-0 win in 2006.

However, Arsenal go into the clash in good form having won four of their last five games away from the Emirates.

Wenger insisted Arsenal are confident going into the game and that they will give everything to continue their defence of the Cup.

Speaking about the tie, Wenger said: ”We are confident. We go to Manchester United to qualify and give absolutely everything with hard work and team effort. I don’t believe too much in history. At the moment we are doing very well away from home so it’s down to our effort.

“It’s a special intensity because it’s between two teams with a chance of winning. We’re focused on the FA Cup.”

United fans will take heart from their good record against Arsenal but will still be wary of their attacking talent.

Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud will all pose a threat to United and Louis van Gaal‘s side will need to be on top form defensively if they are to get through the game. Arsenal dominated the previous fixture between the two sides but United scored two goals on the break to seal a 2-1 victory.
