Arsenal v United: Essential information

Manchester United will aim to ring in the new year with our third Premier League victory on the spin, as the Reds travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal.

It has been a fruitful festive period so far, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side moving to within striking distance of the top four with victories over Newcastle United and Burnley.

Our next test comes in the form of an Arsenal side who are hoping to rescue their season, after appointing former player Mikel Arteta as their new head coach.
