Can you name the starting line-ups from Man Utd’s 8-2 win over Arsenal?

Over the years, Manchester United and Arsenal have played out some thrilling encounters in the Premier League. The rivalry between two of the greatest managers to have graced the planet, Sir Alex Ferguson & Arsene Wenger will forever be remembered for its passion and intensity, while some of the divisions best players have lit up the occasion, creating memories that will stick with us for life. Usually a fairly tight affair, it’s Manchester United who currently lead the way in terms of victory, winning 95 of the 227 duals.

Arsenal have came out on top 82 times, while there have been 50 draws between the two teams. Former United front man Wayne Rooney is the fixtures top scorer with 12 goals, while Welsh wide man Ryan Giggs has made the most appearances to date, turning out 50 times for his beloved Man United side against the Gunners. The most memorable match between these two sides has got to be the 8-2 drubbing Arsenal suffered at the hands of United back in 2011.

That result at Old Trafford shocked everybody and will go down in Premier League history as one of the highest scoring games since its inception back in 1992.
