Arsenal host Manchester United on Sunday striving to go six games unbeaten to their rivals at Emirates Stadium. So, here is everything you need to know like how to watch.

The Gunners have produced a strong run against their rivals in north London in recent years. Manchester United last won away to Arsenal back in January 2019 whilst Unai Emery stood at their helm. Mikel Arteta has since claimed four wins and one draw in each of his fixtures.

Manchester United even have to go back to December 2017 to find their last win at Arsenal in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer oversaw a 3-1 win at Emirates Stadium against Emery’s Gunners team in the FA Cup. Arteta beat Erik Ten Hag’s Red Devils 3-2 last season.

Why Pele Is Overrated.

Eddie Nketiah scored Arsenal’s winning goal against Manchester United in the 90th minute this January. He also drew the Gunners level on 24 minutes after Marcus Rashford broke the deadlock. Bukayo Saka (53’) and Lisandro Martinez (59’) also hit the goal in the second half.

Arteta will hope Arsenal go six games unbeaten at home to Manchester United this Sunday. The Gunners lost some early ground in the title race with Manchester City after drawing 2-2 with Fulham. So, here is everything you need to know about Arsenal vs Manchester United.

Arsenal team and injury news

Arsenal received some positive injury news ahead of facing Manchester United with Gabriel Jesus returning from his injury against Fulham last week. The Brazilian missed their first two games of the term against Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace after needing knee surgery.

The striker underwent a minor operation on the eve of the season after feeling discomfort in his knee. It was the same knee that Jesus injured at the 2022 World Cup and needed surgery on. But Arteta would afford the 26-year-old a brief stoppage-time cameo against Fulham.

Jesus’ return gave Arsenal an almost clean bill of health with Jurrien Timber and Mohamed Elneny their only long-term absentees. Timber’s ACL injury suffered against Forest is likely to sideline him for most of the season. Elneny is yet to return after his knee surgery in January.

The Evening Standard has also played down any suggestions that Nketiah suffered an injury against Fulham. Arteta introduced his striker at the break and reaped the rewards as the 24-year-old scored. But exaggerated fears rose after the match that he sustained a knee injury.

Prediction: Arsenal (2) vs (1) Manchester United

Arsenal will welcome the Red Devils to Emirates Stadium confident of claiming another win against their rivals. The Gunners have not been overly convincing through their matches so far this season. But they have offered more promise than the Old Trafford side have shown.

Ten Hag’s team struggled to secure a 1-0 win against Wolves on the opening day of the term at home. Tottenham Hotspur also beat Manchester United 2-0 in rather comfortable fashion in north London. Nottingham Forest then stole a 2-0 lead inside four minutes at Old Trafford.

Manchester United responded to edge the Reds 3-2, with Bruno Fernandes converting a late penalty against 10 men. Yet their performance highlighted the Red Devils’ fragility over their ability to bounce back. Hardly the response needed after a limp defeat away to Tottenham.

If Arteta can address his side’s defensive shortcomings before Manchester United visit north London again, the Gunners will believe they can return to winning ways after drawing against Fulham. Jesus’ return from injury can also inject fresh life into their attack at the ideal time.
