When Arsenal plays rival Manchester United on Sunday, September 4, at Old Trafford, their chances of winning the Premier League will be put to the test. With 15 points, the Gunners are leading the rankings after a thrilling start to the new campaign.
The only team without a loss this season is Mikel Arteta’s squad, who have won their last five Premier League games.
United, on the other hand, has been successful in turning around their season, winning their last three games. When they host Arsenal in what looks to be a thrilling Premier League match, the Red Devils will be eager to capitalize on their recent success.
When they face Arsenal, Erik ten Hag will have a virtually fully fit roster to choose from, including Antony’s summer addition. However, it is improbable that the Brazilian winger will be given a start and will likely only be given a spot on the bench. The sole injury concern for Ten Hag is that of his namesake, Anthony Martial, who is presently dealing with a hamstring problem. Cristiano Ronaldo might therefore start in attack despite missing the most of United’s most recent games.
In the meantime, Arteta is dealing with serious injury problems that have affected his team, and several important players are expected to miss the trip to Old Trafford. Reiss Nelson is a regular absence, and the midfielders Mohamed Elney and Thomas Partey are still out with thigh ailments. Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsedale must also undergo evaluations after suffering injuries against Aston Villa.
