Former Gunner Paul Merson tells Unai Emery how he can get the better of Manchester United, when speaking to the Daily Star.

Arsenal travel to Old Trafford this coming Monday, knowing the Red Devils are suffering at the moment, making a terrible start to the season.

Historically the Gunners have struggled at Old Trafford, picking up their last win at Old Trafford way back in 2006 with a solitary goal from striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Former Arsenal player Paul Merson, knows how important this game is for his old team, with a real chance of victory against their old foes.

When speaking to the Daily Star, he said: “Who knows who Emery will pick to play? If you sat down and tried to pick Arsenal’s best team for the game you’d probably get four wrong. That’s not good.

“It’s difficult for Arsenal because do you go there and attack? If you have a go and United score first it’s a different game, they get their tails up and the confidence comes flooding back.

“But if you keep it tight the crowd gets restless and United get frustrated. Arsenal can win there if they approach it in the right way.

“Trouble is, how many times have they been in this position before, going to Old Trafford in a good place while United are struggling, and still lost?”
