Arsenal and Manchester United meet again in a blockbuster Premier League clash on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium, and over the last few meetings, both sides have served up some exciting matches.
The most recent game between Arsenal and United was back in September 2022, and it was Erik ten Hag’s Man United team that came out on top as they won 3-1 at Old Trafford. Antony scored on his debut, but Arsenal got themselves a deserved equaliser through Bukayo Saka. Nevertheless, a double from Marcus Rashford in the space of nine second half minutes clinched all three points for United.

United and Arsenal met in April 2022, this time at the Emirates Stadium, but it was Arsenal who came out on top this time as they ran out 3-1 winners. United actually played well that day and were unfortunate to be on the losing side as goals from Nuno Tavares, Bukayo Saka and Granit Xhaka handed the Gunners all three points. Cristiano Ronaldo got on the scoresheet for United to make it 2-1 but United missed a penalty through Bruno Fernandes that could have made it 2-2.
In what was Michael Carrick’s last game as the United caretaker manager, Man United beat Arsenal 3-2 in a pulsating game at Old Trafford in December 2021. Arsenal took the lead through Emile Smith-Rowe before Bruno Fernandes equalised for United in the 44th minute. The game swung one way then the other as United took the lead through Ronaldo but minutes later Arsenal captain, Martin Odegaard made it 2-2, just two minutes after Ronaldo scored. However, Ronaldo got the winner in this topsy-turvy affair to secure a 3-2 win for United.
The next instalment between these Premier League giants takes place on Sunday, with the game kicking off at 4.30pm UK time, and let’s hope that United can pick up all three points that could potentially change the complexion of the title race
