It’s been a strange start to the new Premier League season. That’s why the Super Sunday clash between Manchester United and Arsenal, will be a mid-table heavyweight clash.
The random start of the season has seen Arsenal lose three times and Manchester United suffer two losses. In 11th, the Gunners need a win badly in this game after losing two on the bounce – against Manchester City and Leicester City. If the recent head-to-head record between the two sides is anything to go by, Arsenal will be looking forward to this clash.
The Red Devils have been unable to defeat the Gunners in their last four league meetings. While Arsenal won two, the other two ended in draws. As this is incentive for Mikel Arteta’s side, it’s also motivation for Ole’s squad.
Having failed to find the back of the net in two of those four games, Man. Utd will target the goals in this clash of the titans.

Having scored 11 in their last three games, they’re a threat to the Arsenal defense which has conceded an average of one goal per game so far this season. As the home side, the advantage of having the home crowd cheering will not be there to spur them on. But there’s something else they look at and find some confidence boost for this game.
Although they’ve not defeated Arsenal in their last four league games, they have a solid record against Arsenal at home.
They have not lost in their last six against the Gunners at home. While all these games saw both sides score, United won two, with the rest ending in draws.

This clash is not a fight for the title. The league, which is just seven MatchDays old, is still very much young. However, bragging rights are at stake. For the players and the teams, this game holds three precious points necessary for the climb back to the top of the Premier League table.
