Ahead of the match at the Emirates Stadium, we take a look at how the sides' forwards Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud compare.
Arsenal will be hosting the first clash this season with Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United this Saturday. A win for United means they will overtake Arsenal on the table and a win for Arsenal could mean they break into the top four again. United’s list of injuries only adds more misery to their terrible start of the season having only collected 16 points out of 11 games and currently holding seventh place. Arsenal’s Oliver Giroud and Mikel Arteta announced their comeback today and look fit to return to the squad in Saturdays game. Mesut Özil is still recovering from a serious knee injury.
