WHAT'S OUR RECORD LIKE AGAINST ARSENAL?
There have been 230 competitive meetings so far, with the first match taking place in the old Second Division back in October 1894. In all competitions, United have 97 wins to Arsenal's 82, while there have been 51 draws. In the Premier League, the clubs have met 54 times with 24 wins for the Reds, 16 draws and only 14 victories for the Gunners.
Last season, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were on the scoresheet as the Reds twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw against the Gunners at Old Trafford. United then faced Arsenal away twice, winning 3-1 in an Emirates FA Cup fourth-round tie in January before losing 2-0 in the league in March.
HOW DID ARSENAL 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 retired in the summer of 2018. The Spaniard succeeded in steering Arsenal to their first European final since 2006 but losing the Europa League showpiece 4-1 to London rivals Chelsea in Baku, Azerbaijan, meant they missed out on qualifying for the Champions League. They had already fallen short of that target in the Premier League, finishing in fifth place, just a solitary point behind neighbours Tottenham Hotspur. It was Spurs who knocked the Gunners out of the Carabao Cup, in the quarter-finals, while, as mentioned above, United ended Arsenal's FA Cup journey at the fourth-round stage.
