A mouth-watering clash on Sunday sees Manchester United face Arsenal at Old Trafford. (16.10 kick off GMT)

This is David Moyes toughest test at Old Trafford so far and the pressure is on to get a result. If they lose they could be 11 points behind Arsenal at the end of the weekend.

United Team News: Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick should start while Danny Welbeck is carrying a knock.

Arsenal Team News: Jack Wilshere is a huge doubt with an ankle injury which caused him to miss Wednesday's win over Dortmund. Mathieu Flamini should be fit after a groin injury and Theo Walcott may play a part in the game as a sub.

Stat: Arsenal have scored in all of their 10 PL games this season.

How many people would have tipped Arsenal to beat both Liverpool and Dortmund, yet alone keep clean sheets in both? Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny have made Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, Robert Lewandowski and Marco Reus look ordinary but can they maintain their concentration and keep quiet United’s duo of Robin van Persie and Wayen Rooney?

"Hopefully now we can go to Old Trafford and finish the job off.” - Ramsey

If Arsenal manage to contain the pair, they will strongly fancy their chances were Stoke and West Brom have both scored twice. As Tyrrell Meertins pointed out, Arsenal's win against Dortmund was about the battle in midfield.  United's midfield will have a difficult time of keeping Arsenal’s midfield quiet as is filled with exceptional talent who are all in great form. Whereas, United’s problem for the last few years is that there midfield has not been the strongest, hence a bid for Cesc Fabregas in the summer.

Stat: This time last season Arsenal were 6th with 15 points
