12’ Martinelli’s goal ruled out by VAR
Martinelli makes a run with the ball along the left flank on the other end and beats David De Gea to score the opening goal. However, in the build-up, Odegaard looks to have fouled Eriksen and after a VAR check the referee rules the goal out.

Arsenal, on the other hand, is the only club with a 100 percent win rate in the Premier League and sits on top of the table with 15 points after five matches.

Gabriel Jesus – who left Manchester City after the arrival of Erling Haaland – has been in red-hot form and will be leading the attack against United.

He has been directly involved in six goals in his first five Premier League appearances for the Gunners, a club record in the competition, overtaking Mesut Özil (five).

For the Red Devils, their recent signing Antony might just be the attacking solution for Erik Ten Hag along the wings.
