Gameweek 15 is knocking at the door. And for the first time, Mourinho will be facing a flourishing Arsenal side since his turn in the Premier League without Arsene Wenger at the dugout.

This fixture calls for an epitome of luxury in the Table, but recent games give Arsenal the edge, as they search for their first win at Old Trafford in 12 years. For Manchester United, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling, Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian and Marcus Rashford are all doubtful as they face late fitness tests after missing the Saints game with minor injuries. On the contrary, Arsenal have managed to garner 24 second half goals in the past 14 Game Weeks, labeling themselves as the new comeback kings. Although the stage is set for Arsenal to get their first win in years, it’s a game that Mourinho will hate to loose and will fight until the final whistle.

Eddie Howe had an excellent start to the season, but recent results have pushed them down the pecking orders. A loss this midweek could push them out of the top half of the table, keeping in mind the fact that Huddersfield have had a turn in results in recent weeks. David Wagner was left furious with Steve Mounie’s red card in Huddersfield’s 2-1 home defeat to Brighton on Saturday, that he wants to move forward with this situation and wants a convincing win this time. Although it might look like an easy game for Bournemouth to pounce upon, it’s far more from over even before the ball has been kicked.

Liverpool will be looking to build to their last-minute goal from Divock Origi which almost no one believed it to be a winner as they take on struggling Burnley this late night game. Sean Dyche’s men have gathered just 1 point in the last six games, and are winless in the last seven games. A danger run to the fact remains that the four of the next five games in the League are against contenders who are currently in the top-6 of the table. On the contrary, Jurgen Klopp will be looking to push into his squad depth as Mane and Robertson remains doubt before the game as both were injured after the game concurred.

Manchester City will have the chance to move 5 points clear of Liverpool for at least 24 hours if they get a win this evening. Watford had a brilliant start to their season as they won their first four games on a go. But for some reason they’ve slipped off the pecking order, something that they had managed to pull off last season and most of their fans are in fear of that repeat. Guardiola’s side will be looking for a seventh successive league win on Tuesday night, while they are now unbeaten in 20 matches which include 17 victories and three draws. City have not even conceded an away goal since August and have let in only one in a seven-match streak which dates back to April. It will be a huge ask for Watford to pull out anything from this game.

West Ham United 2-1 Cardiff City
Bournemouth 2-0  Huddersfield Town
Brighton 1-1 Crystal Palace
Watford 1-2 Manchester City
