Just 11 games have been played in the Premier League but Manchester United are already in a position where they cannot afford defeat against Arsenal if they want to maintain realistic ambitions of mounting a title challenge this season.
While Jose Mourinho ‘s side are eight points adrift of leaders Liverpool, Arsenal head into the game at Old Trafford with the opportunity to move to the top of the standings before the remainder of the weekend’s games.
The Gunners have not suffered a defeat in any competition since losing 4-3 to Liverpool on the opening day of the season.
