INJURY-HIT Arsenal and Manchester United have agreed to field only five players each for tomorrows game.No swearing or the manager tells you off
The match, which has been moved from the Emirates Stadium to the nearby York Hall Leisure Centre, will be played indoors on a wooden surface with both teams wearing plimsolls.
United currently have 12 first-team players injured while Arsenal have lost key players Ozil and Koscielny with a further six presenting notes from their mothers saying they are too ill to play.
Arsene Wenger said: These excuses are undoubtedly authentic, as all our players are extremely enthusiastic about playing for the club this season.
If forced to field eleven players we would have had to select under-12 players, members of the catering staff and Yaya Sanogo.
The game will have a strict no tackling policy and will finish after 55 minutes so everyone can have one of the Lucozades and packets of McCoys Ryan Giggs brings along.
An FA spokesman said: Technically this is in breach of rules.
But weve okayed it because whichever way it goes, this match will have no impact on the outcome of the Premier League whatsoever.
