Arsenal Plan 2-Game Pre-season Tour of Malaysia and China

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis stated, “Everyone at Arsenal Football Club is excited to be visiting both Malaysia and China.”

“The club has a tradition of playing in Malaysia going back to the 1960s. This will be our fourth visit to Malaysia, having last visited Kuala Lumpur in 1999.

“We are also looking forward to returning to China, where we last played a pre-season friendly in Beijing in 1995.

“It will also be a wonderful experience for the club and our players, many of whom will be visiting Malaysia and China for the first time.”

Arsenal v Manchester United – Tickets

Arsenal v Manchester United – Tickets

Manchester United’s clash with Arsenal on Sunday will be a treat to their fans. The two teams have battled at the top of Premiership all season.

Arsenal’s defeat to Bolton last week did not rule the Premier League out for the Gunners.

Having hoped for a treble, Arsene Wenger’s men may end up without a trophy.

Surely, Wenger will be determined to defeat his old foe Sir Alex Ferguson, whose side are getting close to the title and UEFA Champions League final appearance.

Their 2-0 win over Schalke was a game-changer – giving Man Utd a solid foot in the door for the Champions League trophy.

A six-point lead over Chelsea means just a few more points are needed to bring home a record 19th title in the Premiership.

United has won six of their last seven against the Gunners, boasting an excellent record at the Emirates, having not lost there since 2007.

Dimitar Berbatov will return to the United squad having missed the last three matches with a groin injury sustained in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester City.

Arsenal’s Paul Scholes serves the last of his three-match ban following his dismissal in the FA Cup semi final defeat to Manchester City.

Arsenal: Sczeszny, Sagna, Koscielny, Djourou, Clichy, Song, Fabregas, Nasri, Walcott, Arshavin, Van Persie.

Man Utd: Van der Sar, O’Shea, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Nani, Giggs, Carrick, Valencia, Rooney, Hernandez.
