Manchester United will face their biggest test of the season so far this weekend as they make the trip to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Mikel Arteta’s men are top of the league and the current favourites to win the Premier League title, which would end a 19-year wait for the London club.
Arsenal have lost just one game this season and that defeat came at Old Trafford, with two goals from Marcus Rashford earning the Reds all three points after Antony scored the opening goal on his debut.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s game, Arteta has become the latest figure to praise Ten Hag for his revolution at Old Trafford, hailing his impact as ‘really impressive’.
🗣 "He's turned things around pretty quickly."

“Really impressive,” Arteta told Football Daily when quizzed on what he made of Ten Hag’s performance thus far.
“I think he’s turned things around pretty quickly. I think he has implemented a very clear way of playing. I think the team has bought into it, they have a really good energy around the place.
“A lot of things have changed in a really short period of time so credit to him and the coaching staff for what they have done.”
Victory over Arsenal would put United within touching distance of the Gunners and a title challenge could become a realistic prospect for the Old Trafford club.
All of that is, however, reliant on United claiming all three points on Sunday. Anything less almost certainly rules out a 21st title in 2023.
