Andrey Arshavin believes Arsenal's return to home comforts this weekend will see them return to winning ways.

Arsène Wenger's side have lost two consecutive away games in the Premier League - taking their tally to six this season - but they have turned Emirates Stadium into something of a fortress after winning seven and drawing two of their last nine on home soil.

Arshavin expects Manchester United to try and disrupt Arsenal's passing game on Sunday but he expects his team to find a way through.

"If we play well we don't mind what form they are in," he told Arsenal Player.

"I don't think we play differently at home, we just try to play in our own style. Of course at the Emirates you feel the supporters more and teams are more frightened and scared. I think it's easier to play at home.

"Man United started the season very well and seemed so far away from everybody else but at the moment they are not. Manchester City are above them. They are very strong but at home we are very strong too and I hope we can do it."
