Manchester United vs Arsenal LIVE: Premier League updates, MUN vs ARS, team news, preview – SportsMediaz


Welcome to Sportstar’s live blog of the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Arsenal, being played at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, England.

This is Neeladri Bhattacharjee bringing you the pre-match build up and minute-by-minute updates of this high-voltage clash.

Manchester United will look to record four successive wins in the Premier League for the first time since April 2021 when it faces table topper Arsenal at the Old Trafford on Sunday.

Erik Ten Hag’s men have made a comeback since its horrific beginning with two opening losses against former Championship sides Brentford and Bright & Hove Albion.

The first win since the loss, came against Liverpool at Old Trafford – the spot for another derby on Sunday.

Arsenal, on the other hand, is the only club with a 100 percent win rate in the Premier League and sits on top of the table with 15 points after five matches.

Gabriel Jesus – who left Manchester City after the arrival of Erling Haaland – has been in red-hot form and will be leading the attack against United.

He has been directly involved in six goals in his first five Premier League appearances for the Gunners, a club record in the competition, overtaking Mesut Özil (five).

For the Red Devils, their recent signing Antony might just be the attacking solution for Erik Ten Hag along the wings.

Head-to-Head

Manchester United and Arsenal have faced each other 60 times and United has come out victorious 25 times, while the Gunners have won 17 times. The remaining 18 games have been draws.
