Emmanuel Eboue insists Arsenal can’t fear Manchester United when they visit Old Trafford tonight.

The Ivorian believes the team should not be scared of a side that has struggled to hit top gear this season and sees no reason why they can’t get a result if they play the football that saw them go top of the Premier League last weekend.

Arsenal have won just once at United since February 2003 but Eboue is optimistic of turning that record around, citing the strong self-belief in the team after recent results.

“For me I always believe in ourselves,” said Eboue. “If we play our football and are not scared why can’t we do something?

“We always believe in ourselves and then I always believe in our team.

“We are positive for the game, we know it will be difficult not only for us but for both teams.”
