Roy Keane predicts Manchester United v Arsenal result as he reacts to Theo Walcott’s claim that Gunners are bigger

Manchester United face Arsenal at Emirates Stadium today and will be looking to grab a win at the home of their bitter rivals.

The Red Devils lost 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur the last time they visited London and will be expected to respond in their second away game of the campaign.

Man United have won both of their home Premier League games this season – against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Nottingham Forest – and they need to show that they can also win on the road.

Arsenal will be a tough nut to crack at home and it will be interesting to see what manager Erik ten Hag and his players come up with.

Man United legend Roy Keane does not see them leaving Emirates with all three points, predicting a 2-2 scoreline when asked who he thinks would win the game on Sky Sports.

He had earlier reacted to Theo Walcott’s claim that the Gunners are the bigger club right now, and the Red Devils will need to prove him wrong.

Man United last won a Premier League game at the Emirates in December 2017, and Ten Hag will be looking to end that this evening.

With France international centre-back Raphael Varane unavailable for selection due to an injury, the Dutchman has gone with Victor Lindelof alongside Lisandro Martinez in central defence.

Summer signing Rasmus Hojlund is available to make his debut, but Man United are sticking with Anthony Martial as their striker, with only one change made to the starting XI that played against Forest last time out.

Not many people have tipped them to challenge for the title this term, with Arsenal widely regarded as the closest challengers to Manchester City.

However, the Red Devils can make a statement of intent with a victory at Emirates.
