Nasri turns down MANU factor

Samir Nasri , Arsenal's ace wide forward has turned down the impression that MANU would pose serious threat ahead of their clash later on Monday. He claims that the Gunners would take down the United , as they have lost the charm of past teams.The Gunners are currently leading the table at the moment, following Manchester City and Manchester United which is a point behind Arsenal.
"Manchester United is not the same team as before, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Tevez it was a little bit scary to play at Old Trafford," he commented.
This came as a counter statement by Nasri when United defender Evra claimed earlier this week that Arsenal were in  crisis.On the other hand Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger are trying to diffuse the tension ahead of the big clash.
"We could lose to them but then what? There is nothing [for them], there will be no trophy, nothing," said Evra.
Arsenal are a great club but it has been five years since they won anything and that for me is a crisis."
Arsenal after winning at Old Trafford in 2006 have won five away matches this season, inclduing 3-0 win over Man City.
"The difference when we play away is that we defend much better. Our discipline and shape is more efficient when we play away," Nasri added.
Wenger did not comment directly on the remarks of Nasri, but said he would leave the other to decide who's right and who is not.Ferguson on the other hand has called upon his supporters not to promote offensive chanting as they had been making in earlier clashes against Arsenal .United have had a almost flawless record in 2010-11, where they won seven and drew 1 of their eight Premier League matches.
So it will be all in the hands of next coming few hours that who will do what, and will have to look under the hood, and ask from themselves. Ferguson or Wenger - your choice.
