Arsenal team news

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta may well elect to stick with the starting XI that eased to a 2-0 win at Tottenham in their most recent outing.

The Gunners have now kept three clean sheets in a row in all competitions and centre back partnership Gabriel and William Saliba will be tasked with keeping out what has been an impressive Man Utd attack in recent weeks.

Fringe player Mohamed Elneny will be assessed after missing the north London derby with a knee problem, while Arsenal are yet to announce imminent new signing Leandro Trossard - he could feature if registration papers were submitted by 12:00pm on Friday.

Gabriel Jesus and Reiss Nelson remained sidelined.

Arsenal vs Man Utd score prediction

Sunday afternoon's clash promises to be a hugely entertaining affair between two sides who have shown rampant attacking streaks this season.

Arsenal's statement victory at Spurs has them five points ahead of Manchester City in second having played a game fewer, though here they will have to deliver a similarly emphatic performance to beat a United side well into its groove under Erik ten Hag.

The Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by Palace in midweek due to Michael Olise's stunning free kick, but had previously won their last nine games. The absence of Casemiro is a huge blow for the visitors and the game may well hinge on how well United cope without the Brazilian.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-2 Man Utd
