Arsenal will look to become the first team to beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Friday.
Man United have won seven games out of seven since their former striker came into replace Jose Mourinho in December, including their last visit to north London when they beat Tottenham nine days ago.
That run has seen the Manchester club move level on points with Arsenal in the Premier League and back within reach of the Top Four.
But focus now shifts to the FA Cup with the Gunners, the competition’s most successful side, looking to ensure a brutal end to the Solskjaer honeymoon period.
Preview: Arsenal vs. Manchester United – prediction, team news, lineups
The FA Cup’s two most successful sides collide at the Emirates Stadium on Friday evening as Arsenal take on Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.
Only Arsenal (13) have lifted the famous cup on more occasions than United (12), with at least one of the sides reaching the final in each of the last five seasons.
With seven wins from the last seven games, Manchester United will look to continue our unbeaten run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, against Arsenal in the Emirates FA Cup fourth-round tie on Friday night.
The Reds and the Gunners have a rich history in the famous competition, having met on 15 previous occasions. However, this will be our first trip to the Emirates Stadium in the FA Cup.
As we approach five years since the last goalless draw between the two sides, an exciting encounter is in prospect and a place in the fifth-round draw, which will take place on Monday night, is up for grabs.
This will be the 229th edition of this famous old fixture. United have 89 wins to their name over the years with Arsenal coming out on top 82 times.
United have won two of the last three with the last meeting ending in a 2-2 draw in that helter-skelter meeting at Old Trafford in early December.
Hector Bellerin is facing an extended period on the sidelines as the result of a knee ligament injury suffered in the win over Chelsea on Saturday.
With Unai Emery not planning on bringing in a direct replacement; that could mean a start for Stephan Lichtsteiner at right-back.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan could return to action against his former club; the Armenia international is back in full training this week after his recent ankle injury.
Mesut Ozil is fit; whether Unai Emery fancies calling upon the Germany international is an entirely different matter, however,
United are waiting to learn if Marcus Rashford will be fit to start against the Gunners.
The 21-year-old has four goals in his last four games, thriving under Solskjaer’s guidance, but was taken off against Brighton on Saturday with a suspected knee issue.
Marouane Fellaini and Marcos Rojo remain unavailable while Chris Smalling remains a doubt due to his recent foot problem.
