Arsenal v Man Utd Xmas treat for eir Sport customers


Arsenal's Premier League game against Manchester United at the Emirates on 2 December is the pick of the Christmas treats for eir Sport subscribers this December.

The managerial rivalry between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho rivalry is renewed as Arsenal and Manchester United face off at The Emirates on 2 December, live on BT Sport 1 [kick off 5.30pm]

The pair have clashed repeatedly over the years, with then Chelsea boss Mourinho showing little love for the Frenchman when he labelled the Gunners' boss "a specialist in failure" on Valentine's Day 2014.

The pair also almost came to blows during a game at Stamford Bridge in October 2014, with Wenger angrily pushing the Potuguese away from his technical area.

And time hasn't healed the rift. 

In September 2016, Spanish sport newspaper Marca reported that Wenger refused to let Mourinho sit next to him during Sir Alex Ferguson's opening speech at an elite coaches' conference in Nyon.

In other highlights, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City entertain title rivals Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, 16 December, Manchester United host Southampton on 30 December, while Irish viewers can watch Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick, Jon Walters, Stephen Ward and Kevin Long in action as Burnley take on Tottenham at Turf Moor on 23 December.
