Although this is not the title decider it often once was during the 1990s and early 2000s, it still has some importance at the top end of the table.
United will be looking for a strong reaction to their shock defeat to the Blades in midweek, where they were knocked off the summit by City. United are the only team to remain unbeaten away from home this campaign, winning eight of their 10 matches, and will be keen to keep pace with Guardiola’s men – who play at 3pm.
For Arsenal, it is a good measure of their progress as they come into the game on the back of a six-match unbeaten run. Mikel Arteta’s side are heading in the right direction after a dismal start and will be looking for a double over United, after winning 1-0 at Old Trafford in November’s reverse fixture.
