Man United star hailed as 'absolutely magnificent' ahead of Arsenal trip

Jose Mourinho focusing solely on Arsenal clash

Arsenal vs Manchester United: Mourinho speaks ahead of clash, gives injury update

Matic, who arrived at Old Trafford from Chelsea at the start of the season, was substituted after 55 minutes of United's 4-2 win at Watford in mid-week with Mourinho saying the Serbia global had a muscular problem.

Manchester United are now preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Arsenal at The Emirates on Saturday evening as they bid to try and keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the table.

"Lacazette has a groin problem and will certainly be out for Saturday's game", Wenger said after seeing his side demolish Huddersfield Town 5-0 on Wednesday night.

Borg and McEnroe met 14 times in tour matches between 1978 and 1981, winning seven each, with their contest in the 1980 Wimbledon final, which Borg eventually won in five sets, considered by many experts to be one of the greatest clashes in tennis history.

Dunphy told Game On on RTE 2fm that he was impressed by the Gunners in their 2-0 victory over Spurs a fortnight ago and expects a similar display to produce a similar result.

"Borg's coach was telling him that all the time: "One point at a time; think about just one point".

"We don't think about how many points ahead of them we are or how many points ahead the leaders are". It's just this game. We don't think how many points we are in front of them, how many points we are behind the leader.

And Mourinho subsequently hit out at England's treatment of the player, specifically that Jones had been given six painkilling injections in order to feature in a friendly.

However, the last meeting, United's visit to the Emirates in May, saw Wenger finally register a league victory over a Mourinho team at the 13th attempt, triumphing 2-0.

It was then suggested to him that he was like McEnroe and Wenger like Borg, to which Mourinho replied with a smile: "No".

"I've played three games in a row. I don't play tennis". Since taking over at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016 he has seen his side draw three and lose four of their matches on the road against the Premier League's big boys.

Mourinho added: "When we have the ball, we are going to attack with 11 players because even the goalkeeper needs to know what to do when we have the ball".
