• Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Manchester United at the Emirates last season is their only win in 11 Premier League games against them (D4 L6).
  • Manchester United haven’t lost consecutive away Premier League games against Arsenal since November 2001.
  • Arsenal were 3-0 up against Manchester United in this exact fixture last season, with Alexis Sanchez scoring twice. This is the only time that the Red Devils have conceded three goals in the opening 20 minutes of a Premier League game.
  • Sanchez is two goals away from scoring his 50th Premier League goal for Arsenal, becoming the 8th player to do this for the Gunners.
  • Wayne Rooney has scored more Premier League goals against Arsenal than any other player in Premier League history (11).
  • Rooney is now just three goals shy of reaching 200 Premier League goals and needs two more goals this season to avoid it becoming his lowest total in a campaign (6 in 2002/03 for Everton).
  • Alexis Sanchez needs just one goal to register his best-ever return from a single campaign in Europe’s big five leagues (currently on 19, tied with 2013/14 for Barcelona).
  • However, just six of Alexis Sanchez’s league goals have come at home this season in the Premier League (32%) despite playing at the Emirates on 16 occasions in 2016-17.
  • This will be Arsene Wenger’s 58th match as Arsenal manager against Manchester United in all competitions. It’s the side the Frenchman has faced most often with the Gunners, but also the side he’s got the lowest win rate against (29% - minimum of 15 games).
  • Wenger’s only previous win as Arsenal manager against Jose Mourinho came in the 2015 Community Shield – he’s never previously beaten him in the Premier League before (W0 D7 L5).
  • Indeed, Jose Mourinho has faced Arsenal without losing more times in the Premier League than the has any other side (12 - W5 D7 L0).
  • Manchester United have won their last two Premier League games in the capital – they last won three in a row in London in November 2014, with the third win in that run coming at the Emirates.
  • Manchester United are now unbeaten in 25 successive Premier League matches (W13 D12) – a club record within a single top-flight season. Only seven teams have gone longer unbeaten in a single top-flight campaign, with Nottingham Forest’s 26-game unbeaten run in 1977-78 their next target.
