Manchester United defender reckons the Red Devils are going to make Arsenal’s job difficult on Sunday.
Speaking before Manchester City knocked United off the top of the table after beating Newcastle 6-1, the defender revealed that the Manchester team are in a ‘good mood’ going into the tie and aim to make the Gunners’ day as hard as possible.
“They want to set something right but it’s difficult for them as we are in a good mood now,” Blind said.
“It’s always a good feeling to go somewhere and you are the league leaders. It’s a special feeling.”
He continued, “We have to move on from that and keep strong going there but we have to be prepared.
“Arsenal will come out strongly so we have to make sure we get the three points – that would be nice.”
Arsenal’s form in the Premier League has been fine, with our most recent fixture against Leicester ending 5-2 to us thanks to a hat-trick from the newly in form Alexis, and goals from Theo and Giroud.
However, it’s our Champions League results that are looking decidedly shabby. On Tuesday, a loss to Olympiacos at the Emirates threw a major spanner in the works going into this huge clash against United.
Hopefully we can recover and continue our good form in the league. If we’re truly going to be title contenders, we have no choice.
