It`s the first of three consecutive Premier League away fixtures for United this Saturday when we make the short trip to Wigan to take on struggling Wigan at the DW Stadium. Three points, with difficult away trips to Chelsea and Liverpool to follow would go down exceedingly well.
Many people are already saying the title is ours to throw away, we`ll not make any bold statements until the fat lady sings, but our club captain, Nemanja Vidic is a little less cautious when he states ahead of the fixture,
"I am not surprised by where we are, the table shows where we should be. We don't need to bother about other teams because we are in a good position - it all depends on us."
It certainly does.
Roberto Martinez has two key players rated as doubtful. The defender Emmerson Boyce will require a fitness test on a hamstring problem whilst Callum McManaman may miss the fixture after suffering nasty cut in the recent FA Cup loss to Bolton.
Surely destined to be not plying his trade at the DW Stadium much longer, a class above the rest of his team mates.
Sir Alex Ferguson, following the dour 0-0 draw against Marseille, takes his squad to the DW Stadium without the injured Ferdinand, Anderson, Park, Hargreaves Owen and Valencia.
Still experiencing a stuttering season but that sensational overhead goal, against Manchester City, might just have kick-started his season.
The record books strongly favour Manchester United in this fixture with United having won all 12 previous fixtures with the goals tally reading as 37 for and only 4 against.
United supporters may well be hoping for a repeat of the corresponding fixture last season whereby United triumphed 5-0
Mark Clattenburg will be the man in charge of this fixture.
This is a fixture we just have to win. With difficult trips to Chelsea and Liverpool to follow, anything other than a win at the DW Stadium would give Arsenal a real boost in the title stakes. It`ll not be a stroll in the park but I see no reason why United can`t win by at least two clear goals.
Tuesday evening gives us a chance to put the final nail in the title challenge of the current holders, Chelsea, when we travel to Stamford Bridge to play a fixture that was postponed during the ice-age we experienced before Christmas.
