Manchester United, who’s coming off of a 5-0 Champions League win over RB Leipzig, will take on Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.
However, their overall domestic start has been less than ideal with United yet to win at home in the league this season. There is a good omen for today though since United are unbeaten in their last 13 home league games against Arsenal.
The Gunners are looking for back-to-back Premier League victories over Manchester United for the first time since 2006-07. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will bring back several first-team regulars who have been out due to injuries, but his star defender David Luiz is still out with an injury. He will need to decide whether to stick with a three-defender system in Luiz’s absence.
United will try to come back to winning ways by focusing on their Champions League results, where they last recorded an impressive and unexpected 5-0 against German powerhouses Leipzig at Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men had previously managed to upset PSG in Paris (1-2) with Marcus Rahford being again the executioner of the French outfit.
However, Arsenal has lost three of its four league match-ups.
While Manchester United is coming off a high, the sweep wasn’t pretty. There wasn’t much between the two sides, especially during the first half, and the game was won by a flurry of late goals.
The head to head record appears to favour Arsenal having won two and drawn one of the duo’s last three league meetings while United’s last win against Arsenal was in the FA Cup in 2019.
Coming into the matchup against Arsenal, Man U is winless in the past four league meetings (D2, L2). Additionally, they are unbeaten in 13 home league games against the Gunners.
Arsenal presently at 10th place on nine points travel to Old Trafford on Sunday without Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari, Rob Holding, Calum Chambers have all been ruled out with injury. David Luiz who picked up a muscular injury against Leicester is also unsure for the game yet.
United with seven points sits at 15th place will also be without Anthony Martial still serving his domestic suspension, while Eric Bailly, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones are all ruled out with injury.
Manchester United are looking to maintain their recent run of good form as they host Arsenal at Old Trafford in the Premier League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are unbeaten across their last four matches having recorded wins over Newcastle, Paris Sasint-Germain and RB Leipzig, and drawn with Chelsea.
