Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the Premier League today, but the stadium has been far from a happy hunting ground for Arsene Wenger's side.

1)  Arsenal last won in the league at Old Trafford back nine years ago in September 2006, when Emmanuel Adebayor scored in the 86th-minute from a cutting Cesc Fabregas pass. Of the Arsenal squad that day, three players remain at the club - Tomas Rosicky, Mathieu Flamini and Theo Walcott.

2) Arsenal have never won at Old Trafford twice in the same season. The Gunners defeated United 2-1 in the FA Cup back in March. Can they create history today?

3) Home and away, Manchester United are unbeaten in the seven Premier League meetings between these sides (W5, D2) and they have lost just one in 12 ties.


Should United win this afternoon, they will leapfrog Arsenal up to third place.
