An update after today's Premier League meeting
New Year Offers
Happy New Year to all of you - 2020 is starting with a bang as Arsenal take on Leeds in the FA Cup at the Emirates on Monday 6th January, followed by Manchester United and Manchester City doing battle on Tuesday 7th January at Old Trafford for a place in the Carabao Cup Final.
Leeds will fancy their chances of a giant killing at the Emirates given the two clubs’ recent form. The fixture will see the reunion of Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa and the young star he signed when he was in charge at French side Lille - Nicolas Pepe. The story, if you believe it, is that Bielsa scouted Pepe by watching every Ligue 1 game he played for former club Angers, before checking him out in the flesh and parting with a reputed €10m. This proved to be a wise investment for Lille, as they sold him on two years later to Arsenal for a club record fee of €79m. They weren’t together long at Lille, after Bielsa’s reign came to an abrupt end, but the young forward described the Argentine coach as “special”.
Although the Carabao Cup doesn’t carry the weight of other competitions, any derby game is a hot prospect, and under the lights at Old Trafford it should be a fiery encounter - with the lure of a place in a Wembley final up for grabs over the two legs.
We’ve got some stunning hospitality packages at incredible prices for these two games, so what better way to blow off those Christmas cobwebs than enjoy these fascinating clashes in VIP surroundings at two of the country’s most impressive stadia.
