One of the best football battles of old seems to be coming alive as EPL leaders Arsenal welcome eternal rivals Manchester United to the Emirates.

A football duel that seemed to have lost some meaning as they years progressed is now alive in this top of the table clash.

Arsenal are at the top of the English Premier League table with 47 points in search of a first title since 2004.

Meanwhile, Man United are in third place on the log with 39 points, setting this up to be a cracker of an encounter.

United were 3-1 winners at Old Trafford the last time these sides met in the league and Arsenal won the match prior to that by the same score line.

Arsenal have won five of their last seven league games at home against Man United and this is only the third time they host United as league leaders.

The Gunners have also won 11 of their last 17 top flight matches against United that have been played out on a Sunday.

Newcastle ended Arsenal’s 10-game winning streak at the Emirates earlier this month, but they have not conceded a single goal since the turn of the year.

Not since being thumped 4-0 by Brentford in August have United failed to score away from home, and only two of their nine road games since have ended in defeat.

The visitors have scored in their last 16 games and this will boost their confidence ahead of the trip to North London.
