Manchester United Rocked By Huge Injury Blow Ahead Of Arsenal Game

Wenger: Ozil Showed What He Is Capable Of

"His ability to keep making those runs in behind is incredible, I played a similar position to him, and you don't realise the athleticism it takes to keep making those runs".

The often outspoken Portuguese manager Mourinho's comments, perhaps surprisingly, suggested he sympathised more with the low-key personality of Borg, a five-time Wimbledon champion, than the demonstrative and controversial McEnroe, a victor of seven Grand Slam singles titles.

Mourinho has emphasised he is focusing just on Saturday's match rather than the title race as a whole - and likened the one-game-at-a-time approach to how tennis great Bjorn Borg was coached.

"I don't know if he can play", Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference.

"I always tell my players to think just about the game". Ash just scored the goal at Watford so if he feels it then fine, or I feel it then I will tell him.

During Tuesday night's 4-2 Premier League victory over Watford at Vicarage Road, Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic left the pitch after 54 minutes to be replaced by Ander Herrera.

Man United is now in the 2nd position in the Premier League with 32 points, four more than the Gunners, but eight fewer than the city rivals Man City, and a potential defeat here would likely see the Citizens going 11 points clear of the Red Devils.

"It doesn't matter what comes after, what happened before". It is Arsenal, and that is hard enough without us being focused on other things. "I love tennis, I don't play tennis".

Mourinho, however, insists he will always aim to field his strongest side, regardless of the concerns about balancing his squad for the coming matches. "I want him to, he wants to, but I can not guarantee".

Mourinho also suggested he will not simply set out his side to contain Arsene Wenger's side.

United travel to Arsenal this weekend and host Manchester City later on in the month.

"We won the title in Manchester" is a chant still sung to this day by Arsenal fans, who saw their team famously take the Premier League title from Manchester United at Old Trafford, when keeper Fabian Barthez could only parry a Freddie Ljungberg shot into the path of Arsenal's enigmatic French winger Sylvain Wiltord, who put the ball away, cuing scenes of delirium amongst the travelling Arsenal faithful.
