Good afternoon – welcome to Old Trafford
It’s time for the most celebrated fixtures in Premier League history.
It’s Manchester United against Arsenal – and this one is simply unmissable.
They may not have been fighting for first and second like the days of Fergie vs Wenger between 1997 and 2008.
But there is still plenty of needle between these two sets of fans – even if they do begrudgingly show some respect for each other.
Arsenal are simply flying at the moment – after five wins on the trot.
If they clinch victory at Old Trafford today, Arsenal join an elite group of clubs including Newcastle, Chelsea (who have done it twice), Manchester City and Liverpool in winning their first SIX Premier League games.
Just think of some of the moments provided in this fixture over the past 25 years.
Marc Overmars’ title-winning winner, Sylvain Witord doing the same in 2002, Owen Hargreaves’ free kick in 2008 and Marcus Rashford’s stunning debut brace in 2015.
And who can forget Roy Keane vs Patrick Vieira, Arsene Wenger being sent to the stands, Pizza Gate, Martin Keown goading Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney’s ‘dive’ and Louis van Gaal flopping to the ground.
Now it feels like these two clubs are turning a page – allowing for the fact that Manchester City and Liverpool are the real top dogs in England at the moment.
Can either catch them? Today will be a sure sign of whether it’s possible.
