Arsene Wenger has predicted that Jose Mourinho's Manchester United will attack Arsenal on Saturday rather than simply "park the bus" and is confident that Mesut Ozil will not be affected by the interest in him from his former manager. With Manchester City eight points clear of their neighbours and twelve ahead of the fourth-placed Gunners, defeat for either club at the Emirates could be a fatal blow if City maintain their unbeaten start to the season with victory at home to West Ham on Sunday.

"It could do if Arsenal play as good as they did against Spurs in the north London derby a couple of weeks ago". Wenger has not had a sound relationship with Mourinho ever since the latter stepped on English soil and tempers are expected to flare as two of the Premier League's all-time heavyweights go head to head on Saturday. Phil Jones is doubtful to play with a hamstring injury, so in case he is not ready to perform, the "Special One" could go with Lindelof, Smalling, and Rojo at the back again. Mourinho will be without the midfielder Michael Carrick who is out with a calf injury and will not feature on Saturday, while the centre-back Eric Bailly is still struggling with a knock and will probably be unavailable for this tilt.
