Manchester United v Arsenal: Match Preview, Team News, Predictions, Venue & Where To Watch Details
Once the biggest fixture in the Premier League era filled with the intensity and passion that you would see in a knockout final and grace by the legendary managers Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger and their legendary feuds, Manchester United are set to face Arsenal in what could be one of the matches that could determine the Red Devils chances of getting in to the Top 4 of the Premier League.
Manchester United have been hampered by the inconsistent form that has seen them playing out a goalless draw at home to Crystal Palace and then a 2-2 draw away at St Mary's park to bottom team Southampton. The Red Devils have not registered a single victory in their last 3 league matches.
Arsenal, on the other hand, arrives with all guns blazing with the Gunners thumping city rivals Tottenham Hotspur in their last match. The Gunners are unbeaten in their last 19 matches in all competition.
