Mikel Arteta’s side have scored five wins out of five games so far, perhaps helped by the fact that they haven’t yet played a team that is guaranteed to finish in the top half of the table this season. A trip to the North West of England for Sunday’s famous match could reveal how far the young Gunners have progressed since last season and if, perhaps, they are ready for a title challenge this season.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Manchester United v Arsenal.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Live Analysis! – By Joe Prince-Wright
Arsenal supported by that beautiful counterattack on their no goal. United are sitting a little deeper now. Saka causes Malacia a lot of trouble here.
NO GOAL! Just as United looked so dangerous, Arsenal thought they had taken the lead thanks to a fine finish by Gabriel Martinelli on the break. Wait, though. The VAR took a look and Martin Odegaard clearly used his hands to push Christian Eriksen in the rear to set up the attack. Difficult to argue with that goal canceled by the VAR. And it’s not a goal after referee Paul Tierney looked at the sideline monitor. Nice play by Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli on that goal disallowed, however.
CHANCE! Beautiful cross from Dalot after a clever maneuver by Antony and Christian Eriksen arrives at the far post but shoots wide. Good things from United.
KICK OFF! Old Trafford is booming. Both teams tried early with Diogo Dalot entering the box but none were at the end. Gabriel Jesus is shot down by Lisandro Martinez. Punishment at Arsenal.
What a clash this will be at Old Trafford today as Erik ten Hag’s United host fiery Arsenal with both teams aiming to score a scorer early in the season. Buckle up, people!
United have won three straight games after opening the season with two shocking defeats and their recent success has been built on newfound defensive resilience. On the day of the $ 100 million maturity, Antony’s signing enters the starting lineup to make his debut, which will thrill United fans around the world.
However, Arsenal are leaving almost everyone thrilled with them as Mikel Arteta’s young side won five out of five to start the season. With key players (Odegaard, Zinchenko and Ramsdale) shaking off injuries to get ready for this clash, let’s see if the young Gunners are the real deal and can stay perfect.
Key storylines and protagonists
13 goals scored, four conceded. Even more impressive than the numbers is the ease, fluidity and artistry with which Arsenal unleashed every side they faced. Three different players have already scored three Premier League goals, with Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard leading the way. Jesus also has three assists, although Erling Haaland has nearly mended his “signature of the season” after scoring nine goals in his first five games for Man City, who passed by Jesus in the summer to make way for Haaland. On Sunday, however, Arsenal will face a team that represents a real danger to go to the other side if they lose the ball and do not return to defend quickly and sufficiently sharply.
As for Manchester United, Erik ten Hag needs to see continued progress from a team that have won three straight games (having lost their first two, including a 4-0 embarrassment to Brentford) and made a couple of key purchases in the last days of the summer market (Casemiro and Antony). Cristiano Ronaldo remains at the club after failing to secure an away transfer as he had requested, potentially complicating matters even more for Ten Hag, whose side appeared much more functional and balanced when the Portuguese superstar is off the pitch.
