Man Utd vs Arsenal LIVE: Stream, TV channel, team news and kick-off time for Premier League grudge match at Old Trafford | The Sun

WE are just hours away from the biggest Premier League fixture of the weekend – Manchester United versus Arsenal.

United beat Leicester in the Premier League on Thursday and go into this clash after three wins on the bounce, but that is nothing to match Arsenal's FIVE victories so far this season.

The Gunners have lit up the Premier League with their incisive attacking and water-tight defence so far.

And Mikel Arteta's side sit proudly atop the table this weekend, looking to make it six from six in the top flight.

It was the sixth game of the 2003-04 season when Arsenal drew 0-0 at Old Trafford and went on to finish the season undefeated – and now we are in the sixth game of this season.

Team news

Mikel Arteta spoke of the injury Martin Odegaard picked up in the win over Villa.

"He got a bad kick," he said.

"He was struggling. It was very recent, so we'll have to see over the next few hours how he recovers."

Aaron Ramsdale also picked up a thigh injury in the win, but he managed to play the full 90 minutes.

Arteta said: "I think he felt something, I don’t know what exactly. He managed to finish the game, but he’s another we’ll have to assess."

Arsenal will be hopeful Oleksandr Zinchenko will be back for the United clash, having missed the last two with a knee sprain.

United could give Antony his debut after signing for £85million.

Likely line-ups

Manchester United could start Casemiro alongside Fred or Scott McTominay in deep midfield roles, if Erik ten Hag decides to play his tried-and-trusted 4-2-3-1.

Or he could opt for a better playmaker in Christian Eriksen instead of Fred.

Arsenal face a dilemma over whether to start Takehiro Tomiyasu or Ben White at right-back.

Meanwhile Oleksandr Zinchenko will have a late fitness test before Arteta decides on whether to play the Ukrainian or Kieran Tierney.

    Better than six

    It was the sixth game of the 2003 Premier League season when these two sides met for one of the best 0-0 draws you have ever seen.

    Ruud van Nistelrooy hit the crossbar with a last-minute penalty and United, then the champions, would concede the title to Arsenal who finished the match unbeaten.

    The iconic image of the game was Martin Keown jumping all over Van Nistelrooy to gloat about his miss.

    It was an ill-tempered afternoon and it did not change much over the next few years.

    Gunning for a joint record

    If the North London side clinch victory it will be their finest start to a season since 1947-48 – when they went on to win the First Division title.

    Only Chelsea (twice), Newcastle, Manchester City and Liverpool have won their opening six Premier League games.

    Arsenal have won their opening five before, last doing so in 2004-05 which continued their invincible run, before they drew with Bolton.

    Manchester United team news – midfield dilemma

    United's midfield is peppered with options for Erik ten Hag, but it may finally be time to start Casemiro.

    Who plays alongside him is also up in the air, with Christian Eriksen, Fred and Scott McTominay all options, while Bruno Fernandes is almost a dead cert to start.

    Whether the Dutchman pics record signing Antony in the squad is up in the air, with Anthony Elanga likely to start on the right wing.

    Team news – what can we expect?

    The Gunners are sweating on the fitness of Oleksandr Zinchenko, but need not worry about his potential replacement, the ever-reliable Kieran Tierney.

    And there may be a selection head-scratcher for Mikel Arteta over whether to pick Ben White or Takehiro Tomiyasu at right-back.

    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.
