Former Arsenal youngster, Kristoffer Olsson thinks that Manchester United lack leadership, after defeating them 2-1 with FC Midtylland.

Speaking after the game, the midfielder told reporters that he hadn’t any real opinion on United before going on to give a real opinion on United.

“They play a little slow. It’s hard to have an opinion when it’s the first time I play against them, I don’t know how they usually are, but I felt that they didn’t have any real leader,” he said.

“There was a lot of negativity, but I don’t know if it was more than usual. We knew that they were feeling low and took advantage of that.”

Still only 20, Kristoffer arrived at Arsenal in 2011 but was gone by 2014 as he looked for more regular playing time. On leaving the club, Kristoffer tweeted

Meanwhile, Arsenal fans might have been hoping that David de Gea would be out for their game against United on 28th February but it seems as if the knee injury that he picked up during the warm up is not serious enough to rule him out that long. It is believed that United expect him to be back in time for either the return leg against FC Midtylland or the Arsenal game.

Not that we wanted to see him out with a serious injury, but we’d have taken a little three-week strain.
