Arsenal vs Manchester United – Saturday 2nd December 2017 – 17:30 - BT Sport 

Arsenal are 6/4 with Alexis Sanchez at 9/2 to score first.

Arsenal face Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening, in another huge Premier League fixture.

Arsene Wenger's side come into this match on the back of a comfortable 5-0 win against Huddersfield, a fantastic result for Arsenal.

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring for the Gunners in the opening five minutes (3), the Frenchman will miss this match with a hamstring injury though.

Olivier Giroud continued his excellent knack of scoring goals from the bench with a second-half double (68 and 87).

That double came either side of goals from out of contract duo Alexis Sanchez (69) and Mesut Ozil (72).

Ultimately, it is an excellent result for Wenger's men, who were at their fluent best.
For Huddersfield it was a damaging result, their defence completely fell apart in the last 20 minutes despite being solid for the first 70.
