  • Manchester United have lost just one of their last 10 Premier League matches against Arsenal, a 3-0 loss at the Emirates in October 2015 (W6 D3).
  • There have been six penalties missed (from 10 taken) in this fixture at Old Trafford in the Premier League; more than any other game at a single venue in the competition.
