Editor’s View- Why The Result And Who Will Have The Advantage

Time for both teams to go all guns blazing, though Mourinho always looks for a draw generally in his away fixtures and hopefully he pushes for a win this time around, as the two English giants need to catch up with Manchester City at the top of the points table. If the match does indeed end in a draw, it will only extend the advantage that Pep Guardiola’s side has at the moment, which will mean more joy for the Citizens and probably hurting the ambitions of the Portuguese boss and Arsene Wenger.

The team selection and the current form of both teams will surely play a key role in determining whether things work out for either manager or not.
