Arsenal vs Man Utd head-to-head record

The Red Devils have failed to register a goal in their previous three visits to the Emirates Stadium, suffering a pair of 2-0 defeats.


Arsenal vs Man Utd score prediction

The Gunners' record against big six sides this season doesn't make for pretty reading, although their 4-2 success away at Chelsea is bound to give Arteta's men belief heading into this weekend.

United have not fared well in their trips to the red side of north London in recent years, and much will depend on the availability of Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.

Arsenal's ability to gain control within games could be critical, and the Gunners could edge it on the day.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Man Utd
