Arsenal winning against Manchester United isn’t that rare but facing them is never a walk in the park… well almost never.

Since Woolwich Arsenal and Newton Heath first played each other in October 1894, we’ve won 82 games to the Red Devils’ 96. We’ve only drawn 47.

When Arsene Wenger came to north London in 1996, the Frenchman found it hard to beat our Premier League rivals and has gone on to lose 25 out of 56 clashes, winning only 18. They’re definitely been an Achilles heel, which was only made weaker when Jose Mourinho moved up north.

The former Chelsea coach has only lost twice to Wenger. Although one of those was last time we faced each other in May at the Emirates. We won that match comfortably with goals from Granit Xhaka and former Red Devil, Danny Welbeck.

Let’s hope for a repeat performance on Saturday.

Here, in no particular order, are some more of Arsenal’s other best wins against United.

2. April 1978: 3-1

A superb goal from Liam Brady and a brace from Malcolm MacDonald saw the Gunners cruise to a 3-1 victory at Highbury. Although the rivalry between the two clubs was yet to reach it’s peak, Brady’s goal was something else.
