Arsenal welcome Manchester United to Emirates Stadium and both teams have yet to hit full gear this season which makes this an interesting encounter for both sides.
Arsenal have a superb record against Manchester United at home in recent years and will be looking to continue that on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners have scored 5 goals so far this season, two via the penalty spot with Eddie Nketiah (2) and Saka scoring the goals from open play. Arsenal dropped two points last weekend which will frustrate Mikel Arteta given then clawed themselves back form a 1-0 deficit at half time to lead 2-1, only for a sloppy goal conceded from a corner with a few minutes left against Fulham.
Arsenal fans are calling for the return to the back four who did so well last year and we wait and see whether Mikel Arteta will bring back Gabriel to centre back, to partner with William Saliba and then Ben White can revert to his right full back position. This will also benefit Bukayo Saka, who has a brilliant relationship with Ben White down Arsenal’s right hand side.
Eddie Nketiah will be itching for another Premier League start after coming off the bench and scoring on Saturday and Fabio Vieira couldn’t have done much more himself after coming on at half time last weekend, so assist and win a penalty.
Prior to two dropped points, Arsenal beat Nottingham Forest at home 2-1 on the opening day, albeit had a little scare towards the end of the game and then on the road against Crystal Palace, Arsenal won 1-0, but didn’t look convincing in front of goal.
Against a Manchester United side who have also yet to kick into gear Arsenal need to find the attacking flair which won then so many plaudits last season.
For Manchester United, they have 6 out of 9 points this season, but like Arsenal, have been way off the pace. A bit of luck against Wolves saw them win 1-0, with Wolves having lots of chances to score and then VAR not given them a clear penalty.
Then Manchester United got beat 2-0 at Spurs and after being 2-0 down to Nottingham Forest at home, they came back and won 3-2.
Manchester United will have to improve their away from to have any chance of a result at Emirates Stadium.
