Here’s a completely pointless fact for you: After Monday’s game, Arsenal will have played in their yellow kit in three competitive matches, all away to teams with “United” in their name.

The first game against Newcastle United went well, with the Gunners keeping a clean sheet and finding a winning goal through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s first of many already this season.

That was followed by a draw against Manchester United, which wasn’t such a good result, though it was also the best Arsenal have been able to hope for at Old Trafford for the last decade of Premier League football.

Next up, Sheffield United. After a win and a draw, let’s hope this isn’t a case of completing the set of results.

West Ham United are the final “United” Premier League team Arsenal could play against, and it’s pretty likely they’d wear yellow for that one too.

Unfortunately, it’s not until December, and Arsenal have away games against Vitoria, Leicester City and Norwich City before then. They won’t wear yellow against Norwich, but could well in the other two matches.

You never know, maybe they’ll choose blue in Portugal and red in Leicester to keep this useless stat alive. For now, Arsenal need to focus on maintaining their unbeaten record in the shirt with a win.
