Arsenal will be looking to make it seven league games without defeat whilst Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will be hoping his side can bounce back from their poor performance in midweek as these two English giants meet at the Emirates.
Saturday’s hosts come into this game sitting 10 points behind the visitors but Mikel Arteta’s side will be looking to reproduce the form they’ve showed in previous meetings with United which have seen the Gunners win their last two encounters.
Manchester United are winless in all four Premier League games against Arsenal under Solskjaer with the Norwegian having the unwanted record of being the only United manager to face Arsenal more than once and be winless.
Arsenal come into this game on the back of an impressive 3-1 win away at Southampton, a result they secured without the services of key men, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kieran Tierney.
They will also take confidence in the improvement they have made at the back with the North London side conceding just twice in their last six Premier League games whilst also boasting the second best defensive record in the league.
The Red Devils can look towards their stellar away record in the Premier League for some much needed confidence heading into this fixture. A win on Saturday would mean United would have taken 26 out of an available 30 points on the road this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Eric Bailly will be traveling to London with the squad following a knock he picked up in training that kept him out of their defeat to Sheffield United on Wednesday night.
January signing, Martin Ødegaard could be in line to make his first Arsenal appearance after arriving on loan from Real Madrid on Wednesday.
