History of the Arsenal v Manchester United fixture

Arsenal prepare to entertain Manchester United at Highbury on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Gunners are clearly on top, winning 58.89% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Highbury was less than a year ago, in April 2003, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Premiership match.
