Manchester United vs Arsenal LIVE: Players to watch out for
Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United):
The Portuguese icon has not been in the best of form in the Premier League, but he is still their brightest beacon. Ronaldo has scored 4 goals and provided 2 assists in 10 Premier League games. The 36-year old would be the go-to man for the Red Devils in the game.
Emile Smith-Rowe (Arsenal):
The English midfielder has been instrumental for the Gunners this season. Smith-Rowe has 4 goals and 2 assists in the Premier League this season. He is the clubs’ top scorer alongside Aubameyang and would be the favourite to find the back of the net against the Red Devils.

The Twelfth Man Times Prediction: Manchester United 1-1 Arsenal
Manchester United are on a horrendous run of form. Plus they have not beaten the Gunners in their last five Premier League encounters. Arsenal, on the other hand, have failed to dominate the game against Premier League heavyweights. Hence we expect this game to end as a draw between the rivals.
