Arsenal will play hosts to Manchester United at the Emirates in the marquee Premier League fixture of the weekend, with a lot riding on the game for both sides.
Mikel Arteta and his men have been on a resurgent run in the Premier League in the past month or so, having gone on a six-game unbeaten run, with five of those results being wins.
All of this has meant that the Gunners are now up to 9th in the standings.
The Red Devils went into their midweek fixture versus Sheffield United on the back of a fighting 3-2 win over bitter rivals Liverpool last weekend and were perched atop the table.
However, a paltry display against the Blades did not just pave the way for another home loss but also saw them drop down to second on the Premier League table, behind neighbours Manchester City, who also have a game in hand.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are the only unbeaten team on the road in the competition and have dropped points just twice in 10 outings.
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Luiz, Soares, Xhaka, Elneny, Saka, Willian, Pepe, Lacazette
Man Utd XI (4-2-3-1): Gea, Bissaka, Lindeloef, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford, Cavani
Kick off is at 18:30 (GMT +1).
