Cesc Fabregas believes Arsenal will not find things ‘easy’ at Manchester United on Sunday

Manchester United are currently enduring a miserable run of form, winning just one of their last seven league games. 

Manager Erik ten Hag is under pressure after the recent disappointing results, but he will reportedly not be sacked before the FA Cup final with Manchester City later this month. 

The Dutch boss will be hoping for an encouraging result this weekend against Arsenal, who are on a four-game winning streak in the English top-flight. 

Former Gunners star Cesc Fabregas insists Mikel Arteta’s side will not find things easy at Old Trafford. 

Fabregas told the BBC Fabregas: “I consider it a big game – Arsenal and Man United, they have always been special games.

“It’s true that Man United, at the moment, they aren’t at the level that they were in the past. We can all agree with that. I see Arsenal too strong for them at the moment.

“I do think Arsenal play by memory. They have confidence. They believe. They have the experience. They have grown over the last year and have improved. 

“So, I do think Arsenal will win that game comfortably. I will not say easy because Man United is Man United.

“The history, at the end of the day. The badge on the chest. We need to respect that. Old Trafford is Old Trafford. But I consider Arsenal too strong at the moment.”

Confidence in the United camp is likely to be very low after the shambolic 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday. 

Ten Hag will be looking for a response from his team when they host Arsenal on Sunday. 

They still have a chance to secure a sixth-place finish, but a big motivation will be to ruin the Gunners’ Premier League title chances.
