Doesn't seem as daunting after Watford. The same approach would be good, the right balance between defence and attack. And the world class Young has to start.

Jose said he was shocked Pogba allowed Young to take the freekick.
Has Pogba ever scored from a freekick for us?

I didn't think it was about him actually scoring a goal, more getting a few close ups of his latest hairstyle and Pogba brand boots. If he scores it's a bonus.

If he scores, he's missed the crossbar

If we're going to put up a genuine title challenge, we need a win and a performance from this. Make a statement.

We lost this fixture last season 2-0. But on the whole Mourinho has a great record against Wenger. I think he's only lost to him twice in about 16 games.

But because it's so good, and because of all of the "specialist in failure" personal shite between em, the worry is Mourinho will try and protect his personal record v Wenger and park the bus, rather than letting us attack. That was the accusation last season. Lets see if it's different this time.

One hope is that we finally found a good balance between defence and attack against Watford. But it relies on players taking their chances and the average shite like Young stepping up.

I don't think Young is getting the credit he deserves here... he's not what we want, but, considering the state of our left back spot, Young has been excellent... he's been for Mourinho, what Valencia was for Van Gall... whether or not he can maintain this form like Valencia has, we'll have to see, but for now, I'm glad he's here...

Arsenal should be an interesting game... still one of the better attacking outfits, and their defence has improved a lot over the past 2 seasons... but it's still Arsenal, and Mourinho knows how to beat Wenger... but if we can't beat Arsenal, we've no chance against City...

Form generally goes out the window in a derby Alf..( I hate that fuckin cliché). But Joey has a bit of a headache now with the Matic injury. Surely he has to pack out the midfield for protection. I think we are going to need every swinging dick we can muster. Watford were strolling through it last night when Matic went off. Herrera, Mata and Mikki are seriously struggling. Surely McTominay must be worth a look at. He's brave and puts it about.

Yeah we could be in trouble if Matic's not available. Our midfield has looked shite when either him or Pogba is missing. It's funny because Herrera did a decent job as a harrying defensive type last season.

Ferguson would stick someone like Jones in as DM in a situation like this, but Jose hasn't seem inclined to make those kind of changes. Actually Lindelof looks like he could be a good man for that, he's good on the ball.

Only caught the highlights because I thought we were playing on Wednesday - never crossed my mind it would be a Tuesday game (yeah, stupid...).
Going by the look on JoMo's face he wasn't expecting Young to take the free kick - if Young can slot them in like that then he should be taking more of the free kicks.
Agree with Alf, Young deserves a lot more credit than he tends to get. Not a superstar, but a real pro who just gets on with it. Respect.
