Manchester United vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester United and Arsenal meet on Sunday with the two Premier League giants in the bottom half of the table.

Manchester United have enjoyed a good run of form since the international break and thrashed RB Leipzig 5-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

They were held to a goalless draw at home by Chelsea last weekend though, a game where both sides struggled to create chances.

Arsenal were surprisingly beaten at home by Leicester City, conceding a late Jamie Vardy winner at the Emirates.

They bounced back to beat Dundalk in the Europa League, scoring three goals in a six minute period either side of half-time.
