Manchester United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford tonight for what could be another epic Premier League encounter between the pair.
The two titans have thrown up some brilliant games in the past, with United leading the head-to-head by 24 wins to 14, along with 16 draws in the league.
This clash used to be draped in rivalry at the top of the table when Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger went toe-to-toe.
But the fortunes of both clubs have slipped in recent years, with the pair both finishing outside the top four last term.
One man who knows just how much this fixture means though is United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And the Red Devils legend, who scored twice in 10 appearances against the Gunners, is expecting plenty of goals tonight.
“For us, the games against Arsenal have always been great for the spectators, and for us. We’ve got a good record against them. For us it’s about focusing on ourselves, doing our bit, and seeing if we can solve the problems they give us,” Solskjaer said.
“I think it will be an open game, two teams that want to attack, and the next game is always the perfect occasion to prove yourselves. Every game here is a game you want to win, and have to win.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Unai Emery is expecting the “world” to tune in to see his side play, insisting he is targeting all three points.
