Five wins out of five has been a remarkable return on a busy summer in north London but Arteta’s side are yet to face a big-hitter, with a potential win at Old Trafford the kind of statement that would seriously underline their title credentials.
United, meanwhile, appear to have somewhat turned a corner in recent weeks. While the Erik ten Hag era is yet to wholly convince, they are coming off the back of three consecutive wins, making this a fascinating clash.
Any meeting of the two giants is a big game, though this particular game would go some way into proving any winner could seriously compete at the top of the league.

United look to have turned a corner of late and will likely try to use Old Trafford to their advantage, much as they did against Liverpool.
While Arsenal have been in excellent form, a draw away at United would have to be seen as another positive result.
