Manchester United and Arsenal have both been having a tough time of late, even if for different reasons. Arsenal started the season well and gave their fans belief that they could finally win the title again. It's been 10 years since the last time they called themselves champions. But, as many predicted would be the case, they've started to fall off the pace, with both Chelsea and Manchester City looking to take full advantage. The 5-1 battering at Anfield last weekend seemed to signal the beginning of the end for them this season.
United's predicament is much worse, with the current champions of England languishing in seventh position in the league, having dropped more points at home at the weekend, following a late equaliser from Fulham. David Moyes said his side were suffering from "mental softness," which is an insult that could probably be aimed at Arsenal too. But which side will show how tough they can be on Wednesday?
