Manchester United head to north London for a crunch Premier League encounter with a resurgent Arsenal

Arsenal v Man Utd
Published: Saturday, 30th January 2021 at 4:00 pm

Manchester United will hope to put their dismal defeat to Sheffield United behind them as they continue their battle in the Premier League title race when they rock up at old foes Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.


United have surged to the top of the table after going unbeaten in their Premier League fixtures since a loss to Arsenal in this reverse tie at the start of November.

However, a shocking 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford to the Premier League's bottom club may have dented confidence across the board.

On the flip side, Arsenal are unbeaten in the league since Christmas, having a youthful exuberance about their forward line and can cut the gap on the top four with a win here.

And for fans watching at home, this game promises much more of the attacking drama that was sadly missing in the previous meeting between the two sides. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Arsenal v Man Utd on TV and online.

Arsenal v Man Utd team news

Arsenal: Mikel Arteta is sweating on late fitness tests for Pablo Mari, Dani Ceballos and Kieran Tierney, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may again miss this game due to what Arteta described as “personal family reasons”.

Thomas Partey is rated 50/50 for the encounter but there is less hope that Emile Smith Rowe will feature after the playmaker suffered a muscle injury in midweek.  

Man Utd: Defenders Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones remain out, while Brandon Williams and Eric Bailly are doubts, but apart from that Solskjaer has a fully-fit first team to choose from.

Anthony Martial has come back under pressure. Edinson Cavani could lead the line here.

Our prediction: Arsenal v Man Utd

Arsenal are enjoying football once again but should Aubameyang and Smith Rowe not feature here then their job is going to prove extremely tough against a United defence that has greatly improved since these sides last met – for the most part – but that Sheffield United result could hurt them.

United hadn't feared anyone recently until midweek, and Arsenal need Partey in the middle of the park to stop the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba weaving their magic.

This game should produce goals at both ends but it could be United who snatch it late on if they react well to their recent defeat. Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani and Martial all have the ability to turn a game in a flash – and this is what might undo Arsenal eventually on Saturday.

Our prediction: Arsenal 1-2 Man Utd (10/1 at bet365)
