Manchester United can make a major statement on Sunday, as the Premier League leaders going into Week 8 head to Arsenal for a mouthwatering clash at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners were in scintillating form in their last Premier League outing, with an Alexis Sanchez hat-trick inspiring Arsene Wenger’s side to a 5-2 win away at Leicester City. Here’s the XI named by Arsenal for this crunch clash, per their Twitter account:

United can really flex their muscles in this one and manager Louis van Gaal will be desperate for his side to finish the weekend on a high. Here’s the team named by the Dutchman, per the club’s Twitter feed:

These two have been involved in some fiery meetings in years gone by and given the Gunners can move level on points with United should they win, there is a lot at stake. After a strong start against some decent teams, all eyes will be on the Red Devils to see how they cope going up against one of the division’s elite outfits for the first time this season.
