Arsenal set to edge

Arsenal will aim to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season when they welcome Manchester United to the Emirates Stadium this evening.

The two sides are separated by just one point in the table after three games, with fifth-placed Arsenal leading eighth-placed Manchester United.

Can Mikel Arteta’s men remain unbeaten? Or will the Red Devils spoil the party in North London?

Arsenal head into Sunday’s showdown on the back of a 2-2 draw with Fulham, despite racking up 19 shots while enjoying 72% possession last weekend.

Second-half goals from Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah saw the Gunners come from behind to lead the Cottagers, but Joao Palhinha equalised on 87 minutes.

Arsenal kicked off their campaign with a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest before claiming a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace on Matchday 2.

Having surrendered the title to Manchester City last season, the Gunners will be determined to go one better this time around.

Meanwhile, Manchester United came from 2-0 down to beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 last weekend, producing a memorable turnaround at Old Trafford.

After conceding twice inside the opening four minutes, Christian Eriksen and Casemiro found the back of the net before Bruno Fernandes scored the winner following Joe Worrall’s red card.

Despite facing a barrage of 23 shots on the opening weekend, the Red Devils managed to secure a 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, Man Utd’s defensive frailties were exposed on Matchday 2 as Erik ten Hag’s men conceding 17 shots while suffering a 2-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal set to edge

Head-to-head: Across their past six Premier League meetings, Arsenal and Manchester United have both picked up two wins, playing out a couple of draws.

When you look at the bigger picture, however, the Gunners have lost only two of their previous 10 Premier League encounters with the Red Devils.
