Manchester sounds users have played their part in selecting the music that will be played at Old Trafford before United's crunch clash against Arsenal on Saturday.

As part of our recent Made Of Manchester week, fans were invited to vote for their favourite songs by bands from Greater Manchester (or with strong connections to the Manchester area).

After exhaustive counting of all the votes, we can reveal the top five songs are:

Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
Take That - Rule The World
Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection
Ian Brown - F.E.A.R.
The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony

These songs will be played immediately before kick-off, so if you're coming to the match make sure you take your seat early.

The rest of the pre-match playlist will also be packed with Manchester songs, so keep an ear out for other tunes from the likes of Happy Mondays, The Smiths, James and The Charlatans.
