Arsenal have beaten Manchester United away once since 2006
Arteta: ‘We believe we can win, if not it’s better to stay home’
Mikel Arteta has told his Arsenal players to shed any inferiority complex when they visit Old Trafford on Sunday and aim for a win that would consolidate their position as Premier League leaders. On paper a meeting with Manchester United, who have recovered from a woeful start to win their past three games under Erik ten Hag, is the most daunting assignment of Arsenal’s season to date.
They are yet to drop a point but have won just once at the Red Devils’ home since 2006. That was two seasons ago but last December they reverted to type, losing 3-2 despite entering the game in good form and taking an early lead.
