Arsenal vs Manchester United match preview

Neither Arsenal nor Manchester United have been at their best so far this season, making this weekend’s red letter fixture in the Premier League all the more intriguing.

Arsenal dropped points for the first time last weekend, conceding after just 58 seconds against Fulham, the third time in just nine home matches the Gunners have been 1-0 down inside the first minute.

Nevertheless, Mikel Arteta’s team fought back to lead 2-1, with Bukayo Saka cooly slotting home a spot-kick before, just two minutes later, Fábio Vieira’s inch-perfect cross was poked home by Eddie Nketiah.

When Fulham were reduced to ten-men with seven minutes remaining, Arsenal appeared to be proverbially home and dry, if not literally given the unrelenting thunderstorm overhead.

But, their terrible record when it comes to defending corners came back to bite once again, with the Cottagers pinching a point at the death.

Before this, the Gunners had picked up the Community Shield, defeating Manchester City on penalties at Wembley, before narrow one-goal wins over both Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace.

Nevertheless, Arsenal are still yet to show their best this season, but will the enormity of this fixture see last season’s runners-up raise their game?

Manchester United meantime are just one point below their great, historic rivals, but are certainly very lucky to have six points on the board.

While Arsenal were struggling against Fulham, the Red Devils were finding Nottingham Forest to be an even tougher opponent simultaneously, with Forest going 2-0 up inside four minutes at Old Trafford.

Nevertheless, Christian Eriksen halved the deficit from close-range before Casemiro bundled home an equaliser, with Bruno Fernandes’ penalty completing the comeback later on.

Erik ten Hag’s team have won both home games so far, very fortunate to beat Wolves 1-0 on the opening weekend, whilst putting in an abject display at Tottenham in-between, defeated 2-0 that afternoon.

Away from home, against teams who finished ninth or higher last season, Man United yielded just a solitary point from eight fixture, with this theme continuing at Spurs a fortnight ago.

The Red Devils are also winless in five visits to the Emirates, losing four of them, the other a goalless draw during lockdown.

Defeat here would see Man United lose three successive league games away to Arsenal for the first time since a sequence of seven successive defeats between 1970 and 1978.

Who will claim a statement victory, and which one of these juggernauts will be plunged into crisis just in time for the international break?

Arsenal team news

Thomas Partey has started all three Premier League matches at right-back so far, but this won’t continue as the Ghanian international is now set for weeks, possibly even months, on the sidelines.

In better news, Oleksandr Zinchenko returned against Fulham, and was exceptional off the bench, so could start this time, with Gabriel also start for his first start of the season.

Takehiro Tomiyasu is also an option, having served his one-match suspension.

Kai Havertz has underwhelmed since arriving from Chelsea, but is set to continue alongside Declan Rice and Martin Ødegaard.

Gabriel Jesus is back, coming off the bench last Saturday after suffering an injury in pre-season, but he could remain a substitute, with Eddie Nketiah leading the line, having scored in both home games to date.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Rice, Havertz, Ødegaard; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.

Manchester United team news

Erik ten Hag is experiencing something of an injury crisis right now, with Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Raphaël Varane, Mason Mount and Amad currently sidelined.

Varane sustained his injury last weekend, with Victor Lindelöf set to deputise.

In better news, Rasmus Højlund is ready to make his much-anticipated debut, while deadline day signings Sergio Reguilón and Sofyan Amrabat could also be in line to debut.

Predicted XI: (4-3-3): Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelöf, Martínez, Reguilón; Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes; Antony, Rashford, Højlund.
