A closer look as Jose Mourinho and Unai Emery go head-to-head

A closer look as Jose Mourinho and Unai Emery go head-to-head

The main fixture on Wednesday afternoon is Manchester United hosting Arsenal at Old Trafford, but there are five others on the slate offering opportunities.

It never used to be like this.

And Mourinho even texted club officials to tell them he has tried everything with Pogba to try and get the best out of him, to no avail.

The 13-time Premier League champions have laboured to several disappointing performances and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Championship side Derby County in the third round, with increased scrutiny over Mourinho's position.

He could circumvent a UEFA touchline ban by sneaking into the changing room in a laundry skip at Bayern Munich to deliver an unauthorised team talk. Do you think Mourinho is trying to match Arsenal?

The player has famously been known for having an all-out action style in which he covered every blade of grass on the pitch for his team, however, it seems he has undergone a significant physical decline as a result. Paul Pogba & Romelu Lukaku make the bench.

In recent weeks, Real Madrid have been mentioned as possible suitors for the United misfit but now it appears that Inter Milan could be taking an interest.

In 2014, Meyer had brain surgery to address a congenital arachnoid cyst , but he still deals with occasional painful headaches. As NPR's James Doubek reported , " Meyer fired Zach Smith, an assistant coach, on July 23 after learning of reports that".

Arsenal head into the game 19 unbeaten and chasing a top four place.

'I hope Unai Emery plays the side that finished the game against Tottenham, playing two up front with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette because that will cause United all sorts of problems.

"But it's nearly a different Arsenal side now, they're playing better football, they're a more aggressive team and looking at them now they're one of the strongest teams in the league".

Let us know in the comments.

Manchester United had submitted a second bid in the region of £91million for Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.

Mourinho's tactics have failed to move with the times and the sight of Marouane Fellaini being introduced in the closing stages was another sign that solutions are running short.

What else does Mourinho have up his sleeve?
