Arsenal’s first real stern test of the season comes on Sunday when they travel to an in-form Manchester United side.
Manchester United have won three in a row, including a narrow 1-0 success away at Leicester City on Thursday evening.
Jadon Sancho scored his second goal of the season in the win, a result that moves United into fifth.
Arsenal sit top of the Premier League having won all five of their matches so far, most recently a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.
The Brazilian pair of Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli scored the goals, extending Arsenal’s excellent start to the campaign.
Premier League form: Manchester United W3 D0 L2; Arsenal W5 D0 L0
Premier League top scorers
Manchester United – Jadon Sancho 2 goals
Arsenal – Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard 3 goals each
Both sides won the home meeting last term, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring twice in a 3-2 win at Old Trafford for Manchester United.
The win was United’s sole success in the last eight league meetings between the two.
Last five Premier League meetings
Arsenal 3 Manchester United 1 – 23/04/22
Manchester United 3 Arsenal 2 – 02/12/21
Arsenal 0 Manchester United 0 – 30/01/21
Manchester United 0 Arsenal 1 – 01/11/20
Arsenal 2 Manchester United 0 – 01/01/20
Casemiro could come in for his first start since joining Manchester United, in what would be the only change.
This would result in another substitute appearance for Ronaldo.
Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard both suffered minor injuries in the win over Villa, but should be fine here.
Oleksandr Zinchenko didn’t train on Friday and will probably miss out, along with Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny.
Expected starting XI’s
Manchester United (4-3-3): De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, McTominay, Eriksen; Fernandes, Rashford, Sancho
Arsenal (4-3-3): Ramsdale; White, Gabriel, Saliba, Tierney; Lokonga, Xhaka, Odegaard; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli
Both sides are in decent form and there could be little to separate the pair at Old Trafford
Correct Score: 1-1
Both teams scored in the meetings last year and a score draw looks a decent bet
Anytime Goalscorer: Gabriel Jesus
Incredibly he never scored against Manchester United when at former club Manchester City, but he has made an excellent start to his Arsenal career
