What is it?

Two giants of the Premier League who have lost their way in recent years, Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Arsenal have played six, won three, lost three. United have played five, won two, drawn one, lost two.

When is it?

Sunday, November 1.

What time is kick-off?

4.30pm.

What TV channel is it on?

Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Ultra HD from 4pm.

What is the team news?

Alex Telles will be absent for United's clash with Arsenal as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to cap his 100th match at the helm with a victory.

After beating RB Leipzig 5-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday, the Norwegian revealed the left-back had tested positive for Covid-19.

Asked if he would be available to face Arsenal, Solskjaer said: "Alex won't be ready, no, so apart from that I would think everyone else at the moment looks like they could be involved."

There are no other fresh concerns for the Norwegian to contend with.

What's our prediction?

Although still a huge game - purely because of the history of these two teams - gone are the days when Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger would go toe to toe on the touchline and Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira spat fury at each other in the tunnel.

Arsenal have lost their last two Premier League games so form is not on their side, and they're up against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United who bore us into a stupor domestically but have us on the edge of our seats in Europe. If United can transfer their European form to the Premier League, the Gunners' defence is in for a long 90 minutes.

Predicted score: Manchester United 1 Arsenal 1
