Both teams finished outside of the top 4 last season in positions 5th and 6th. 5 Arsenal P 38 W 21 D7 L10 GF73 GA51 GD+22 Pt70 6 Manchester United P38 W19 D9 L10 GF65 GA54 GD+11 Pt66 Both teams underwhelmed defensively conceding over 50 goals each, but Arsenal's attack was more productive scoring 73 goals. Both teams this season have last one of their best midfielders for free and haven't tried to replace them. But here's the difference. Arsenal have decided to spend most of their cash bolstering their attack. They have spent 80m on a forward in Pepe, while we've also spent 80m but on a CB. We also decided to go big by spending 50m on a right back, but they've chosen to go for two slightly cheaper options in defence with Luiz and Tierney. We've instead decided to cheap out in attack by spending 20m on James. Who's approach is ultimately going to prove to be more successful?
