Why you should support Arsenal

The Gunners have been excellent at both ends of the pitch, scoring the second most goals (42) and conceding the second fewest (14). They haven’t missed a beat since Gabriel Jesus went down with an injury, which Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard has raised its game. They are number four in the league in terms of goals/passes, with Odegaard getting eight goals and five assists and Saka scoring six and setting up seven. Odegaard creates just under five shots per game, third most in the league. Saka is number four in goal-creating actions per 90 (0.82), and both are top-seven in key passes.

Arsenal are 4-2-2 in their last eight meetings with United, with both losses coming at Old Trafford. The Gunners have a plus-14 goal difference at the Emirates, where they are 7-1-0 this season. United are 5-2-3 and minus-4 away from home. Arsenal also held the ball in 61% of the last meeting, outscoring the Red Devils 16-10. United managed to put six on target, but the Gunners have allowed just 52 attempts on net for the season, second fewest in the league. The Gunners will be much more rested and the Emirates faithful will surely give them a huge boost to avenge their solitary blemish.

Why you should support Manchester United

The Red Devils have played with supreme confidence and will be eager to get back on a winning streak. They also know that this match could decide whether they are in the league title race. They had better chances against Palace on Wednesday and controlled the game, but conceded the equalizer from a 91st-minute free-kick. Marcus Rashford failed to score for the first time in nine games in all competitions. He scored twice in the win against Arsenal in September and is playing at a higher level now. Rashford has eight league goals, four in the last five games.

Bruno Fernandes curled home a feed from Christian Eriksen to give the Red Devils the lead on Wednesday, and both are critical to the attack. Fernandes has four goals and three assists, while Eriksen has seven assists. Fernandes is third in the EPL in both key passes (49) and shot-making actions (88). United put 36.5 per cent of their shots on target, and Arsenal are one of the league’s worst teams at warding off shots and passes. The Gunners are last in blocks (168) and 19th in interceptions (121). Man U goalkeeper David de Gea is third in the league with eight clean sheets.
