As the dust settled on derby weekend, Lee Judges revealed his belief that the big test for league-leaders Arsenal arrives next weekend as Mikel Arteta’s side take on Manchester United. 

Judges lauded the Arsenal performance from Sunday, specifically in the first half, where he compared it to Arsene Wenger’s invincibles.  

Meanwhile, Manchester United fan Adam McKola revealed that he is losing faith that Arsenal will be caught this season; he did, however, add that they have to play current holders Manchester City twice, in fixtures that will be viewed as pivotal in the title race. 

Judges retained his belief that he saw enough in Arsenal’s performance against Tottenham Hotspur to indicate they have what it takes to go all the way – heaping praise on the defensive strength of the Gunners. 

The debate also raged over who is the best of the in-form defensive midfielders, as Judges admitted Casemiro has ‘transformed the way Manchester United play’, which is a big deal for the club.  

It comes as Manchester City prepare to host Spurs on Thursday evening, with both sides looking to bounce back after poor displays in their respective derby games.
