Wenger: This is the player Mourinho will use to hurt us

Arsene Wenger has picked out the player he believes Manchester United’s biggest threat could be in this weekend’s showdown at Old Trafford.

Arsenal are heading into the clash with the Red Devils on the back on an impressive unbeaten run which has seen them avoid defeat in 16 games in all competitions.

The Gunners will be looking to go one step closer to setting a new club record on Saturday against a United side which is missing several key players including star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

However, Wenger, who watched his team lose 3-2 in this fixture last season, insists Jose Mourinho has another goalscorer who could do more damage than the absent Swedish star.

“Look, certainly they would prefer to have him [Ibrahimovic] but, let’s not forget, last year the guy who killed us was [Marcus] Rashford. So let’s not speculate on any weakness of Man United.” the Arsenal manager said on Thursday

“Yes of course [Rashford was a surprise] but to me less because I watched him against a Danish team [earlier that week] and he scored and I could see straight away that this guy could be dangerous.

“On crosses his movement was good, the way he moved in the box was strong. He took everyone by surprise because no one knew him in England.”
