Two of the biggest clubs in England go toe-to-toe as Arsenal welcome Manchester United to the Emirates on Sunday morning (AEST).

The international break gave the Gunners time to regroup after slumping to a 2-1 loss to a rejuvenated Swansea side. Injuries have plagued Arsene Wegner’s side this season, with Olivier Giroud, Mikel Arteta and Mesut Ozil all featuring on the club’s long absentee list. Danny Welbeck lines up against his former side for the first time since his big money off-season move, and he has been enjoying life in North London so far. The young English striker has scored five goals in 12 games for his new club, and he’s to find the net first on Sunday.

United head into this clash off the back of a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace a fortnight ago. Juan Mata, who has been speculated to leave the club in January, was the hero on that occasion, and he may well have to step up again against the Gunners. Manchester United have suffered several injury blows ahead of this clash, with Marco Rojo, Daley Blind and Angel Di Maria all under injury clouds. Big money signing Radamel Falcao has missed the past month of football with a niggling knee injury, but it’s likely the Colombian will be given the green light by Louis Van Gaal for the crucial encounter.

Home advantage and an injury-plagued United line-up sees Arsenal head into this fixture as clear-cut favourites. The Red Devils have been the Gunners’ bogey team in recent years, however, with Arsenal winning just one of the past 14 matches between the sides.
