Jose Mourinho confirms quadruple Manchester United injury blow ahead of trip to Arsenal

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed a nightmare piece of injury news ahead of his side’s trip to take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.

The Red Devils will have to take on the Gunners without Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly, all of whom are definitely out of the game.

As well as that, Mourinho does not expect Nemanja Matic to feature against Arsenal, though the Serbian will at least travel with the squad in case he makes enough of a recovery.

United have not fared well in recent games away to top six sides, with Mourinho himself also currently on a torrid personal run in that regard, dating back to his time in charge of Chelsea.

Arsenal have won 12 in a row at the Emirates and will be tough opponents in this form, especially with so many important figures missing.

United will be counting on Mourinho using all his nous to get one over old nemesis Arsene Wenger once more, having only ever lost one Premier League match to the Frenchman.
