6-1 losers Man United and Van Persie’s Arsenal in Carling Cup action tonight

October 25, 2011 By Angela Asante
It’s time for football fans of the English game to switch their attention from last weekend’s incredible round of matches in the Premier League to this week’s Carling Cup action.
What almost everyone has been talking about since Sunday afternoon is Manchester United’s terrible 6-1 loss to local rivals Manchester City. How Fergie could seat down to let his side suffer helplessly in the hands of the Sky Blues for a full 90 minutes is alarming.

Manchester United commenced their season so well and their 8-2 triumph over Arsenal can be seen as the highlight of their marvelous early form. Lately, however, they stumbled against consistency.

It’s started with their 1-1 draw in the league away to Stoke City in which Wayne Rooney didn’t play. In the UEFA Champions League, Manchester United surprisingly failed to beat FC Basel.

They bounced back, however, with an unconvincing 2-0 defeat of Galati before dramatically falling against the might of Manchester City last weekend.

Anti-Manchester United fans are hoping for this derby defeat to signal the beginning of the end of the Red Devils’ reign in England. But Fergie wants to turn the page as quickly as possible.

Tonight, Manchester United will test their fate in their Fourth Round fixture against Aldershot Town in the Carling Cup. The moment to bounce back has come.

An upset will push football pundits to declare an early end to Man United’s authority in England. What the Red Devils want to do is to continue life as if the Manchester City trouncing was “just another game” or a wake-up call to get even stronger.

In London, Arsenal will host fellow Premier League side Bolton Wanderers. The Gunners are expected to face this battle with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ju-Young Park.

On-fire Robin van Persie, meanwhile, is set to begin the match from the bench to avoid a “burn-out” for playing too much. Arsene Wenger is eying a positive result against Bolton Wanderers tonight. The Frenchman has confidence in his team as he told the press:

“There is hunger in this team no matter what competition. I don't question the hunger of my team, they have an exceptional attitude. You can see now at the Emirates our fans are behind the team because the attitude of the players is right.”

In other games on Tuesday night, Crystal Palace will host Southampton and Burnley will be away to Cardiff City. Manchester United's encounter, however, is expected to attract the most followers especially after what happened against City last weekend.
