United have won one of their last five premier league games are are starting to come to the end of a bad run of games. They had tough games against Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Leicester in the last couple of months but now have a decent run after this game where they the likes of Norwich and Brentford. If they can get a win here it will set them up nicely going into the Christmas games.

Arsenal on the other hand have had a fairly handy run of matches recently which saw them go unbeaten for two months. However that run ended when they lost to Liverpool at Anfield a couple of weeks ago. They bounced back from that defeat with a home win over Newcastle and Arteta's men are now aiming for European football. They are currently 5th, only behind West Ham on goal difference, so they're well in the chance for fourth.

This will be a good litmus test for the Gunners as every time they've come up against a big team this season they haven't impressed and lost heavily. While United aren't doing well this season, they still have quality in their side that should challenge Arsenal.
