The Premier League weekend concludes with historically one of the biggest rivalries in the game as the Gunners put their 100 per cent record to the test against Erik ten Hag’s resurgent side. It is Mikel Arteta’s first real test of the season and a sixth win on the bounce will see their title credentials taken seriously.
United appear to have found their rhythm after dropping captain Harry Maguire and wantaway talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, with three wins on the bounce, though performances are not entirely convincing. The Gunners are impressing every week, but Arteta will know his team have largely faced teams they were expected to beat.
United could hand a debut for Antony, and a first start for Casemiro, while the Gunners are hopeful over the fitness of trio Martin Odegaard, Aaron Ramsdale and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Follow the game LIVE with our blog below.
Man Utd team news: Antony debut?
Antony could be involved in the United squad after completing his huge move to Old Trafford on deadline day, although it seems unlikely he will start.
Elsewhere, Anthony Martial will likely continue to miss out, although Victor Lindelof returned to the bench for the win over Leicester on Thursday night.
Casemiro is pushing for his first start, potentially replacing Scott McTominay given the tight turnaround in games.
