Old Trafford is not a happy hunting ground for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal.

The Gunners haven’t won there in the league since September 2006, when a late Emmanuel Adebayor goal got the better of Sir Alex Ferguson’s United 1-0, although it didn’t prevent United winning a ninth Premier League title that season.

Since then, they’ve drawn twice and lost seven of their meetings at Old Trafford, with perhaps the most infamous their 8-2 drubbing back in 2011, which saw Wenger sent to the stands, and Arsenal battered by a team consisting of Jonny Evans, Anderson, and Tom Cleverley.

Arsenal did record an FA Cup victory in Manchester last year en route to winning the trophy but, all in all, it’s not looking good for the Gunners on Saturday.

United may not be in great form, but they can take a lot of confidence from Arsenal’s poor record, and apparent mental block they’ve got at Old Trafford.
