Arsenal vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: 3 September 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
Both Manchester United and Arsenal have started the season with an inconsistent record, and they will be looking to redeem themselves when the two meet at the Emirates.
Mikel Arteta is expecting his team to show the kind of authority they need to put a serious dent in Manchester United’s title hopes. A victory would give the locals confidence, and even strong superlatives will not do justice to the significance of the occasion.
Although not needed, this match-up is a real test for the character of the Gunners, who started the season with a couple of losses. Arteta is aware that his team is favored to win, but the fans are calling for the manager to stop experimenting with his lineup.
After falling behind early, the Gunners fought back and took the lead against Fulham before giving up a late goal. Although the result halted their title hopes, Arteta is not worried about it. He is focused on getting three points against Manchester United on Sunday.
