After securing a 3-0 win in the Europa League against Dundalk on Thursday, Mikel Arteta has stated that his team will go to Old Trafford at the weekend to win the game.

Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock, and Nicolas Pepe were all on target for the Gunners in the easy win to give the club a perfect record in the Europa League this season.

The North London outfit will now face a crucial Premier League game against the Red Devils on Sunday with the hope of continuing their winning streak. The Gunners have lost their last two league games against Man City and Leicester City and cannot afford another this weekend.

Mikel Arteta, who spoke after the Europa League game, urged his players to turn their attention to the weekend trip to Old Trafford against an unbeaten Man United team for the last four matches.

“After losing the way we lost against Leicester, it was painful at home and took us a few days to digest that defeat.

“But you have to react straight away with a win with this type of attitude and let’s get ready

“We go to Old Trafford and we try to win against them” he concluded.

Mikel Arteta hailed his team for the easy win on Thursday night, stating that ir was made easy with discipline and seriousness noting that any opponent can cause damage if they aren’t 100 percent.

However, the North London outfit cannot boast of that record of wins against Man United at the Old Trafford but with the new system and attitude under the Spanish boss, much more can be expected from the game.

The North London outfit will seek to regain their respect from the Red Devils and that makes it a game to look forward to with the Gunners now having the presence of Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes in the team.
