4-3-3: Man United Strongest Lineup That Could Defeat Arsenal To Win Their 4th EPL Match In A Row

Manchester United vs Arsenal

A genuine test of Arsenal’s mettle begins on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford when an improved Manchester United team welcomes the Gunners to the Premier League’s Theatre of Dreams.

Erik ten Hag’s team defeated Leicester City 1-0 on Thursday evening, while the Gunners extended their winning run with a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa.

Manchester United and Leicester City grabbed centre stage on transfer deadline day, as the Red Devils’ comeback continued.

Man United’s third Premier League victory in a row was clinched by Jadon Sancho’s 23rd-minute goal. The Red Devils’ defensive prowess was a welcome sight for the travelling supporters.

Three successive victories against Liverpool, Southampton, and Leicester have moved Man United to fifth in the standings with nine points from the first 15 available, but their five goals are the fewest of any top-half club.

Ten Hag may have spent Thursday preparing his players for Leicester, but the Red Devils’ leadership welcomed Antony and Martin Dubravka to Old Trafford before Arsenal’s visit.

Man United should ignore the fact that they’ve lost three straight Sunday top-flight games, even if Arsenal has been a different beast so far.

Douglas Luiz scored from a corner against Arsenal and was engaged in a deadline-day transfer controversy, but the Gunners failed to sign him.

Mikel Arteta’s summer business has already paid off in the Premier League. Gabriel Martinelli scored the goal 151 seconds after Luiz had cancelled out Gabriel Jesus’ opening.

The Gunners could have had four or five goals in the first half, but by rebounding promptly after conceding, Arteta’s side remains the only team with a 100% record.

Arsenal are now two points ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League, but they will return to Europe next week when they play in Zurich in the Europa League.

Arsenal haven’t begun a Premier League season with six straight victories since 1947-48 when they won the championship. However, Old Trafford hasn’t been a pleasant hunting ground for the North London club, as they’ve won just one of their past 15 away games against Man United.
