Arsenal, Spurs & United pay price of Premier League’s imbalance

Ahead of this game, Fernandes has been involved in a car crash. This incident took place on Monday morning.

The Athletic are reporting that no one sustained serious injuries from the crash. They add that Fernandes will be able to take part in training with the rest of his Man Utd teammates as planned on Monday.

Elsewhere, Jamie Carragher and Roy Keane have debated whether Manchester United were right to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club.

Ronaldo has scored 15 goals in the Premier League this season and he sits on 21 across all competitions.

Carragher said: “Manchester United should be buying someone who is 27 not 37 – who’s the next Ronaldo?

“It just smacked of where the club was. I always felt it was never going to push them closer to the Premier League title.

“If you watch Ronaldo and if you are judging all of United’s outfield players, he’s still been one of the best, if not the best. For Ronaldo to still play at one of the best clubs in the world at 37 and still have an impact – it’s unbelievable. But for United to buy Ronaldo, I just thought it was a joke.

“It was either a panic because they thought [Manchester] City and whether they were kidded by that or this thing about getting Ronaldo back and everyone’s excited, the social media – I thought it was a bit embarrassing.”

Keane disagreed though, as he thinks that Ronaldo was “worth the gamble”:

“I still think it was worth the gamble. At the bigger picture, you’re looking it’s not a great signing because of his age and listen, whatever. But I still think he can bring something to the party, and I think he has.”
