Manchester United vs Arsenal

After West Bromwich Albion were knocked out by local rivals Aston Villa this weekend, the stage is set for two more Premier League titans to battle it out for a place in the semi-finals.

Manchester United and Arsenal were the ‘top two’ teams from the late 90’s into the mid 2000’s. Although Arsenal slipped down that pecking order slightly earlier than Manchester United (last PL trophy 2003-04 season), United now find themselves looking up to Manchester City and Chelsea as the teams to surpass. In the current Premier League standings, Arsenal sit 3rd and Manchester United in 4th place with one point separating them.

Ferguson on Wenger and Arsenal

“They say he’s an intelligent man, right? Speaks five languages? I’ve got a 15-year-old boy from the Ivory Coast who speaks five languages,”

“He’s a novice. He should keep his opinions to Japanese football.”

“They are scrappers who rely on belligerence – we are the better team”,

Wenger on Ferguson, Man United, and Fergie’s wife!

“Ferguson does what he wants and you [the press] are all down at his feet. He doesn’t interest me and doesn’t matter to me at all. I will never answer to any provocation from him any more,” he said.

“He has lost all sense of reality. He is going out looking for a confrontation, then asking the person he is confronting to apologise.”

“Everyone thinks they have the prettiest wife at home”
