WHAT'S OUR RECORD LIKE AGAINST ARSENAL?
We’ve played the Gunners 230 times in all competitions – more than any other opponent – and, of those previous clashes, the Reds have won 97, drawn 51 and lost 82. Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium was first opened in 2006 and, across our 15 visits, both sides have an even share of the results, with six wins apiece and three draws. Notable wins at the stadium include a 2009 triumph in the Champions League semi-final second leg, a game-of-the-season contender in 2017/18 which we won 3-1, and last term's fourth-round FA Cup victory.
HOW DID THEY GET ON LAST SEASON?
For the first time in 22 years, the Gunners had a new man at the helm, Unai Emery, who took charge after Arsene Wenger's retirement in the summer of 2018. The Spaniard succeeded in steering Arsenal to their first European final since 2006, but the north Londoners were defeated 4-1 by west London's Chelsea at the Europa League's showpiece event in Baku, Azerbaijan. That meant they missed out on a last shot at Champions League qualification, having already fallen short of their target in the Premier League by finishing fifth, just a solitary point behind neighbours Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs also knocked the Gunners out of the Carabao Cup at the quarter-final stage, while, as mentioned above, United ended their FA Cup journey in the fourth round.
