Better injury outlook: Arsenal or Utd.?

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Alexis Nunes give us the latest on Angel Di Maria's ankle injury and what it means for Manchester United's clash with Arsenal.

Given the domestic and international demands on modern players, there may be no more valuable trait at the club level than depth. Successful clubs need more than top talent to compete, as the year-round demands on players makes it a necessity to have a deep roster of world-class players who are ready to perform at a moment's notice.

In the Premier League, studies show that no two teams are more familiar with the importance of depth than Arsenal and Manchester United. Both teams are being tested this season with numerous injuries to some of their most influential players, with Arsenal facing long-term injuries to key players from last season's campaign, while new United manager Louis Van Gaal is struggling to formulate an optimal lineup due to a number of short-term player absences.

On Nov. 28, 1990, Alex Ferguson's United side visited Arsenal's old Highbury ground for a League Cup fourth-round tie ... and won 6-2.

Lee Sharpe, then a 20-year-old winger, was the Highbury hero, scoring a hat trick that put him on the fast track to stardom and celebrity as a "pop...

Man United's injury crisis, confusion continues to hurt Louis van Gaal

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Alexis Nunes give us the latest on Angel Di Maria's ankle injury and what it means for Manchester United's clash with Arsenal.

Louis van Gaal was unable to provide an answer, although not by intention. On Thursday, after a week of worry about how long Daley Blind would be out for following his medial ligament injury with the Netherlands, the Manchester United manager prolonged that wait. He said they still wouldn't know until after another scan in 10 days' time. "It shall be a long story -- but not six months or something."

At the same time, the club's official Twitter account reported it could be close to six months....
