One of the much awaited clash between two premier league giants in the top four is set to take place this weekend when Arsenal to face league leaders Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The Red Devils have eased their way into the No. 1 place, and Gunners will need to make some noise if they want to elevate themselves onto the same tally with a win in this game. 

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney struggled during the early weeks of the season featuring as club’s lone striker, but since the arrival of Anthony Martial has now seen the United skipper gets back to his more skilled role as the 29-year-old suits has been better in form and given the lack of coverage the Gunners midfield offers the team's defence, Rooney will be able to find a lot of space and play his best of the season so far.

United manager Louis Van Gaal knows that if United keep up their stellar away form then the Premier League title will definitely returning to Old Trafford this season.

The Dutchman still have minor issues in their defence for the trip to the north London. The defender Luke Shaw has been ruled out with a leg injury, and Marcos Rojo has been sidelines because of a hamstring injury he suffered against Southampton last weekend.

Therefore the Italian defender Matteo Darmian could be shifted again in the left-back role, meaning Antonio Valencia will likely to fill void right-back position.

The Red Devils could be able to take advantage of Arsenal’s recent performance at Champions League group stage. Gunner’s defence should be vulnerable in this action, as they are always weak on the counter-attack, and the Old Trafford club have some pace to exploit that with the likes of Depay and Martial. 

Arsenal do still have some offensive players to keep them in any game, which could end in a dramatic fashion 1-1 draw.
