Arsenal are without a win in two EPL matches, losing to Manchester City and Leicester City in the process. Manchester United on the other hand had a draw against Chelsea and won Newcastle since losing heavily at home against Spurs.
Still battling with a wobbly start to the new season, the Red Devils will be looking forward to ending their home games woes as they face Arsenal at Old Trafford in the Super Sunday match.
New Man Utd signing Alex Telles remains sidelined due to coronavirus restrictions; Arsenal regulars Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bernd Leno, Thomas Partey, and Alexandre Lacazette will return to action after having a good rest midweek against Dundalk.
Mikel Arteta is without a number of defenders with David Luiz (thigh), Rob Holding (hamstring), Pablo Mari (ankle), and Calum Chambers (knee) all missing through injury, although William Saliba is available to make his debut if called upon.
With pressure beginning to mount on Arteta, his style of play will have to improve if he is to get a good result at Old Trafford.
Both teams have it all to do and have everything to play for in this showdown. United have to regain their fans’ confidence at home after winning their last 10 away games in all competition but failing to win the last 5 at home.
KICKOFF TIME: 17:30 (WAT)
