United reinforced their bid to land a top-four finish in the Premier League with an action-packed 3-2 home win over Tottenham Hotspur last time out.
However, Ralf Rangnick’s men still have some ground to make up if they are to overcome Arsenal in a fierce battle to ensure Champions League qualification.
They currently languish four points adrift of the Gunners, who also have a game in hand, hence complete control of their fate.
Rangnick, who will step down as a Man United boss at the end of the season, is keen to navigate his side to a third successive top-four finish before waving goodbye to the managerial post.
According to The Sun, Ajax manager Erik ten Hag is the front-runner to replace the German strategist in the summer.
Mikel Arteta’s men eked out a 1-0 victory at Aston Villa on the eve of March’s international break, making it six wins from seven Premier League matches (L1).
After a troublesome start to the season, the Gunners have thrived under the Spanish manager to fashion a genuine top-four bid that looked out of reach in September.
Back at the Emirates, where they were unbeaten in four straight league games (W3, D1) before losing to Liverpool last time out, Arsenal will hope to inflict revenge on Man United for a 3-2 defeat in the reverse fixture.
The Londoners have the recent H2H home record firmly on their side here, having kept the Red Devils goalless in their last three top-flight meetings in the nation’s capital (W2, D1).
Man United’s three-game Premier League form does not look promising (W1, D1, L1), neither does the fact they have alternated between winning and not winning across their last five league travels (W2, D2, L1).
It is also worth noting that the Red Devils have mustered just one win from their five top-flight matches against current top-four sides this season (D1, L3), courtesy of the abovementioned triumph over Arsenal.
However, Rangnick’s men have flourished in London this term, racking up as many as three victories from their four Premier League visits to the nation’s capital (D1).
Their impressive league form in London should boost Man United’s hopes of posting their first Premier League win at the Emirates since December 2017.
United will be buoyed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent showing against Antonio Conte’s Tottenham.
The veteran forward notched up a hat-trick to give his team a victory over fellow top-four rivals last time out, as he seems to be hitting his stride with perfect timing. Ronaldo’s stunning deadlock-breaker against Spurs has earned him the nomination for Premier League’s March Goal of the Month award, per Man United’s website.
