By Joe,


There will be one English finalist in this year’s Champions League final and one of the team will come form this tie. For the third time in a roll, there is an English encounter in the semifinals and this time it will not feature Liverpool or Chelsea but instead Manchester United and Arsenal. The Battle of Britain’s 1st epic will be stage in Old Trafford and this tie will certainly bring out the best of Arsene Wenger and Alex Ferguson old rivalry back into the Europe Scene.

Manchester United won their weekend game against Spurs in fashion. Their epic comeback from a 2-0 down at halftime was turned in the 2nd half to 5-2 victory. This is their second time in 2 weeks to do a comeback and on that front, Manchester United is on course to lift the Primer League title.

Arsenal beat Middleborough 2-0 last weekend and is looking forward to the midweek tie. Arsenal’s form has come good at the right time. However, the injury list is growing and Arsene Wenger is definitely not happy having his physio working flat out to get his players back to fitness. Wenger will be without Bacary Sagna, Johan Djourou, Robin van Persie, Tomáš Rosický, Eduardo da Silva and William Gallas. Even without the few of the starting line up players, Arsenal still plays wonderful pass and football moves. It has delighted their fans and brought some confidence back to the squad. The team has seen their captain Cesc Fabergas , Emmanuel Adebayor and Theo Walcott returning from injury and give Arsenal the clinical finish that they have longing for. This can prove important on the night.

As for Manchester United they will be without Gary Neville, Wes Brown and Darren Fletcher but right-back John O’Shea could return. Although no matter what team goes out to compete, Ferguson will have to attack in order to take an advantage in the Emirates next week.

Anyone think Arsenal can win this? They might be missing some core players but they have that hunger to get to Rome. Ferguson will be desperate for that back to back win of the Champion League but Arsenal will come good on the night to exploit Man U’s weaknesses. Arsenals has beaten Manchester United before this season and watch out for the second one on Wednesday night, mybet is offering 4.60 for a home win. Read more about mybet here.
