Bukayo Saka, Arsenal’s talisman, has enjoyed fruitful times against United in recent years, with only Thierry Henry (12) having had more goal involvement for Arsenal against the Red Devils than Saka (5).

With United and Arsenal facing off at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, Saka has admitted that Old Trafford is his favourite stadium to play in away from the Emirates, which is a big claim to make considering the quality of stadiums that the Premier League has on offer.

“When you start from outside, growing up watching football because I love football and have been watching football for years, the special nights you’ve seen in the Premier League and Champions League at Old Trafford, it was nice to be on the pitch and to play,” Saka told Sky Sports.

“I have played there a few times now and I think it is definitely my favourite stadium to play in… As I said, I love playing at Old Trafford. It’s my favourite stadium to play at.”

Continuing, Saka explained that he is aware of the rich history between the two teams, recalling times in school when United and Arsenal fans would go “at each other”.

“The two teams are so big in English history. They’ve had rivalries for many, many years, and every time I play against them, I understand as well. Arsenal fans and Manchester United fans were always going at each other, especially when I was at school. So I understand it—it’s deeper.

“It’s always a big, big game, and it will be on Sunday. I am looking forward to it, I always enjoy playing games at this stadium.”
