Owen Hargreaves admitted Arsenal have performed above all expectations so far but still considers United to be superior to their North London rivals.
The two in-form superpowers are set to lock horns on Saturday in what promises to be an enthralling game. Though I personally feel that the advantage of playing at home gives Arsenal a slight edge, Hargreaves thinks we are the better team and therefore we should win.
'Arsenal have played extremely well and are playing some lovely football but I still think we are the top team in England,' he said.
'It will be a fabulous game for the fans to enjoy but we are very confident going into it.'
Okay, reading these comments you will realise that the above headline was a shameless attempt at getting as many people as possible coming here and express their views on the matter as Hargreaves merely stated that they are confident going into the match.
But really, that's what you should do, express your view on the matter. Are United better than the Arsenal?
If you want to know my personal opinion (and if not you have the chance to simply stop reading) I believe that form-wise there's nothing between the two teams and neither of the managers can claim superiority on the basis of past meetings as they are nicely balanced.
Yet in terms of squad depth and sheer player quality, I think we have the edge, especially due to the Rooney-Tevez partnership and our embarassment of riches on the wings. Arsenal also lack cover at centre-back. Of course this does not mean that we will beat them - I just think that over a long season we definitely have a better chance.
But that's only personal opinion of course.
