Key match stats (supplied by Opta)

Manchester United have lost just one of their last 10 Premier League matches against Arsenal, a 3-0 loss at the Emirates in October 2015 (W6 D3).

Arsenal have gone over 10 years without a league victory at Old Trafford, last beating the Red Devils in September 2006 thanks to an Emmanuel Adebayor winner (D2 L7).

Manchester United have drawn their last two league games at Old Trafford – the last drew three successively at home in April 1992.

Arsenal have lost 22 times against Manchester United in the Premier League - more than they have against any other team, with 15 of those losses coming at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho has never lost a Premier League game against Arsenal, winning five and drawing six of his 11 previous meetings with the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger’s only win in 15 previous encounters as a manager in any competition against Jose Mourinho came in the 2015 Community Shield (W1 D6 L8).

Wenger has lost on each previous occasion that he has faced a Manchester United manager for the first time in the Premier League (Ferguson in November 1996, Moyes in November 2013 and Van Gaal in November 2014).

Arsene Wenger has collected 1.58 points per Premier League game in November, his lowest rate in a month as a manager.

Wayne Rooney has scored 14 times in all competitions versus Arsenal during his career; only against Aston Villa (15) has he scored more often (also 14 vs Newcastle United).

Rooney scored his first ever Premier League goal (Oct 2002), his first Premier League goal for Man United (Oct 2004) and his 100th Premier League goal (Jan 2010) against the Gunners. He needs two goals to go level with Sir Bobby Charlton (249) as Manchester United’s all-time top scorer (all comps).

Arsenal are one of two Premier League sides yet to concede in the opening 15 minutes this season, along with West Bromwich Albion.

There have been six penalties missed (from 10 taken) in this fixture at Old Trafford in the Premier League; more than any other game at a single venue in the competition.
