What numbers say ahead of Arsenal v Man United

Enjoy

Arsenal have won their last two Premier League matches against Manchester United, last winning three in a row in September 1998 under Arsène Wenger.

Manchester United are winless in all four Premier League games against Arsenal under Ole Gunnar Solskjær (D1 L3) – the Norwegian is the only Red Devils manager to face Arsenal more than once in the top-flight without winning a game.

Arsenal are looking to record a Premier League double over Manchester United for only the fourth time – the Gunners have won the league on two of the previous three occasions they’ve done so (1997/98 and 2001/02), also managing it in 2006/07, finishing fourth.

Manchester United haven’t lost three consecutive away top-flight games against Arsenal since May 1991 – the Red Devils last lost three away league games in a row against any single opponent versus Brighton between 1982 and 2018.

Arsenal have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three home games in all competitions, as many as they had in their previous 19 at the Emirates. The Gunners last recorded four consecutive shutouts at home in April 2019, a run that included a home win over Manchester United.

Manchester United are unbeaten in 17 Premier League away games, their joint-longest run without defeat on the road in their top-flight history (also September 1999). The Red Devils have won 26 points away from home so far this season, more than any other Premier League side (W8 D2).

Arsenal have won five of their last six Premier League games (D1), one more than they had in their first 14 this season (W4 D2 L8). The Gunners have netted 14 goals in these six games, two more than they had in their opening 14 (12).

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is looking to become the first ever Gunners manager to win his first three league matches against Manchester United, and only the fourth to win their first three Premier League games for any club against the Red Devils, after Carlo Ancelotti, Manuel Pellegrini and Garry Monk.

In all competitions, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored in four of his last five games against Manchester United, scoring the winner earlier this season at Old Trafford. The last Gunners player to score home and away in a league season against Man Utd was Mesut Özil in 2015-16, while the only player to score the winning goal in both top-flight matches for Arsenal vs Man Utd in a season was Jimmy Brain in 1925-26.

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka has been involved in seven Premier League goals this season (5 goals, 2 assists), more than any other teenager this term. The last teenager to be involved in more goals in a league campaign for Arsenal was Cesc Fàbregas in 2006-07 (2 goals, 11 assists).
