Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher believes Arsenal's move to Emirates stadium has hurt the team.

He said: “We will look to recover from the efforts in Glasgow as quickly as we can and target a win against Arsenal.

“They are a top-quality side. I am quite sure with Manchester United coming to town they will be right up for it.

“They have maybe had a couple of indifferent results of late but you don’t often see Arsenal going on a poor run.

“They will present a big challenge for us on Saturday — but we’ll be trying our best.

“There is great history attached to an Arsenal fixture. I remember playing at Highbury and that was one of my favourite away grounds.

“Now we are heading to the Emirates and it has all changed down there.

“It really is quite different in many ways from Highbury.

“The old ground was something special in my opinion and maybe the move has taken something away — we’ll see.”
