Manchester United had submitted a second bid in the region of £91million for Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly. With 15 Premier League games played Unai Emery's side are still yet to lead at half-time. This is not the United of old and if they somehow managed to get in the top four they'd be pulling up trees'.
However - like in the first half - United found an immediate equaliser.
Quite simply, nothing he tries is coming off, and Wednesday's 2-2 draw vs. Arsenal was the latest example.
"Sunday's north London derby was the flawless script for Arsenal, where they started well, found themselves 2-1 down but came back with a massive bang", Lawrenson told BBC Sport.
Those were the days when Mourinho could try nearly anything and come out the victor. The move was noteworthy due to their names, though in fairness to Mourinho, neither player has done much in recent weeks to justify his place in the team.
It's a misty evening in Manchester, but Arsenal are in full spirits!
"A lot of people would say it's a good time to go to Old Trafford", Winterburn added.
Now for Arsenal! Ramsey starts after impressing from the bench in the North London Derby, Mattéo Guendouzi replaces Granit Xhaka who is suspended tonight.
Which, er, could prove something of a problem for the Manchester United manager, with his side suffering a full-blown injury crisis at centre-half ahead of their clash with Arsenal.
Earlier today, we asked you who will win tonight between Manchester United & Arsenal.
"I told that without saying one single name, and I am going to say exactly the same without saying any names".
Reports suggested the United manager gave Pogba a dressing down in front of his team-mates after last weekend's 2-2 draw at Southampton, as Scholes suggested France boss Didier Deschamps handled the midfielder better as he shone at last summer's World Cup finals. Stick around, this promises to be must-watch blogging!
