Tomorrow’s game between Manchester United and Arsenal won’t just be a tough game between two great Premier league managers, but it is a match which will see players come up against their former employers.
Former Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez switched to the Old Trafford outfits in the winter transfer market and he is in line to face the Gunners for the first time.
The Chilean striker didn’t hit the ground running as expected for the Red Devils in his first seven matches for the club but the 29-year-old is in great form and he would be hoping to dent Gunners hope of qualifying for next season’s Europa League competition.
While reacting to the prospect of playing against his former player, Arsene Wenger reveals that he felt uncomfortable coming up against the Chilean but he has no other option.
The Frenchman also revealed his reason for selling the player to Manchester United, who are known as Arsenal’s greatest rival, according to him Sanchez refused to renew his contract prompting the Gunners to sanction his move to Old Trafford so as to avoid losing him on a free transfer.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is another player who would be facing his old club in tomorrow’s game. The Arsenal player would face United, hoping to prove Mourinho wrong for letting him go.
