This Sunday sees Arsene Wenger’s final meeting with Manchester United as Arsenal manager. It’s a fixture that is seen as one of English football’s most famous, especially when Sir Alex Ferguson was in the Red Devils’ technical area.
This game is known worldwide as one of the greats and it often produces fireworks. Both sides have won two of the last five league meetings and it was Man United who took the points earlier in the season in North London. A Jesse Lingard brace inspired them to a 3-1 win in December. Both teams have scored in six of the last eight fixtures in all competitions with just two draws in that time.
A win for the hosts would make it hard for Liverpool or Tottenham to catch them in 2nd and it would also help to stop Man City from breaking even more records. Antonio Valencia has returned from a knock he sustained last week so there are no injury problems for United. Latest matches: Manchester United

There’s nothing left for Arsenal to fight for in the league so a whole host of changes are expected ahead of their second leg on Thursday. Mohamed Elneny and Santi Cazorla are out while Henrikh Mkhitaryan might not be risked. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied in Europe meaning he will definitely feature on Sunday.

Although Arsene Wenger will be desperate to silence the Old Trafford crowd in his final fixture there, it is Man United who are big favourites. Arsenal’s involvement in the Europa League makes it hard to prioritise this match and the Red Devils will be hoping to send Wenger home with no points for the last time.
