Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Arsenal travel to face Wolves on Tuesday in their next Premier League outing. Manchester United play Southampton in their next game on the same day at Old Trafford.
Arsenal and Manchester United play out a goalless draw in their Premier League clash. Both teams had good chances in the second half to win the game as Alexandre Lacazette struck the bar, while Nicolas Pepe placed a strike wide of the target. At the other end, Edinson Cavani saw a close-range effort saved by Bernd Leno and fired wide of the post late on. Neither side deserved the win and share the spoils at the Emirates Stadium.
90' + 6' Fernandes angles a cross into the box from the left flank, but he overhits his delivery and it travels out for a goal-kick.
90' + 5' WIDE! Cavani works an offload back to Fred on the edge of the box, but he pulls his left-footed strike wide of the target.
E. Nketiah
A. Lacazette
90' + 4' Lacazette is withdrawn for the closing stages due to an apparent head injury. He is replaced by Nketiah.
90' + 1' Maguire and Lacazette collide in the centre circle leaving both players on the deck. The Frenchman requires more treatment than the defender and may have to make way.
90' There will be three minutes of added time.
89' CHANCE! Cavani has to score. Wan-Bissaka whips a dangerous ball towards the near post and the Uruguayan scoops a strike on the volley at goal. However, he places his effort past the post, while Martial running in behind him was arguably in a better position to convert.
87' OVER! Cedric takes the free-kick for the hosts and powers an effort over the wall, but he lifts his strike into the stand behind the net.
86' Willian is brought down on the left flank by Wan-Bissaka, handing the Gunners a free-kick in a dangerous position.
84' Greenwood raids down the right flank and he cuts a low ball into the box. However, it evades both Cavani and Martial before the Gunners clear.
M. Ødegaard
E. Smith Rowe
83' Odegaard makes his Arsenal bow as he replaces Smith Rowe.
81' WIDE! Pepe is inches away from putting Arsenal ahead. Bellerin feeds the winger in the right inside channel and he tries to place a strike into the bottom-left corner. It travels between the legs of Maguire, but lacks the curl to find the back of the net.
M. Greenwood
M. Rashford
80' Rashford's final act is to miss the target with his strike. Greenwood replaces the England man on the right flank.
80' WIDE! Wan-Bissaka wins the ball from Partey and he feeds Rashford. The forward goes for a drive at goal from 20 yards, but he crashes his strike into the side-netting.
78' The game remains in the balance heading into the closing stages of the contest. Both teams are in need of a moment of magic to try to earn the three points.
76' David Luiz lines up a strike from distance from the resulting free-kick, but his effort deflects off the wall and travels over the bar.
H. Maguire
Yellow Card
76' Maguire catches Lacazette with a loose challenge and goes into the book.
74' Willian cuts a pass back to Pepe in the left inside channel, but Fred and Wan-Bissaka converge to prevent the forward from gaining possession.
P. Pogba
Yellow Card
73' Pogba trips Willian on the charge and goes into the book.
72' Shaw has created more chances than any other Man Utd player today (3).
70' United are beginning to exert pressure on the Gunners in the final third, but are lacking in a clinical edge.
68' Pogba winds up and launches a strike at goal from distance. It takes a deflection off Xhaka and loops up comfortably for Leno to save.
67' United break with pace down the left. Rashford works an offload back to Cavani, but he slices his effort. The visitors keep the attack alive as the Uruguayan feeds Shaw and David Luiz has to react in the middle to steer his cross behind for a corner.
66' SAVE! Smith Rowe latches on to a knockdown in the box and creates space for a drive at goal. He sends his effort with power towards the target, but De Gea parries it past the post.
65' OFF THE BAR! Lacazette takes the United defence by suprise and he launches a strike towards goal. It clatters off the underside of the bar and bounces clear of danger for the visitors.
64' Holding knocks a long ball over the top for Lacazette and he goes down under pressure from Maguire. The referee awards Arsenal a free-kick on the edge of the box.
62' OVER! Arsenal put the pressure on and Pepe rolls an offload back to David Luiz in an advanced position. However, the defender floats his strike well over the bar.
59' Wan-Bissaka has to act to steer a long ball forward from Smith Rowe away from Pepe and back for De Gea to clear.
58' CLOSE! Leno has to act with a reaction save to deny Cavani from close range after neat interplay between Shaw and Martial created an opening. The Uruguayan connected with a low effort that the keeper just turned past the post with his boot.
57' Willian appears to be okay to continue for the home side.
56' Willian is down after halting Rashford's run and requires treatment on the field.
55' Rashford runs at Willian and Xhaka down the right flank, but the two players combine to block off his run before Leno clears downfield.
53' The United defence holds firm to clear their lines from deliveries from Pepe and Willian. The Gunners did not make the most of those crossing opportunities.
A. Wan-Bissaka
Yellow Card
51' Wan-Bissaka brings down Cedric on the charge after a one-two with Willian. The United full-back heads into the book.
50' SHOT! Maguire puts his body on the line to deny Pepe on the edge of the box after the Frenchman is teed up Willian.
49' BLOCK! Willian latches on to a cross from Bellerin at the back post. However, he fails to get the ball out of his feet and his eventual strike is diverted behind by Wan-Bissaka.
46' We're back underway at the Emirates Stadium.
46' Martinelli makes way at the break for Willian.
United did end the half on the front foot and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will perhaps be the happier of the two managers. However, it may take something special for a team to take all three points this evening.
It's goalless at the break between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium. It has an even first half as both teams have had decent openings. Nicolas Pepe put an effort narrowly wide of the target, while both Bruno Fernandes and Aaron Wan-Bissaka had similar attempts at the other end. The game remains evenly poised at the interval.
45' There will be one minute of added time.
45' BLOCK! Fernandes angles his strike towards goal, but it strikes the head of David Luiz and travels over the bar. Solid work from the Brazilian in the wall.
43' Rashford should pull the trigger after latching onto a cross from Shaw. Arsenal flood men back on the line to prevent the strike. He offloads to Fernandes, who sees his effort blocked. However, the Portuguese is felled by Partey and gives away a free-kick in the d.
41' Maguire rises highest in the box from a corner from Shaw, but he sends a tame header straight at Leno.
40' Pepe makes an important interception at the back to prevent Shaw's offload from reaching Martial in the left inside channel. Both teams have been committed at the back.
38' Arsenal are attempting to contain United at the back, but the Red Devils now have dangerous pace on both flanks with Martial and Rashford.
A. Martial
S. McTominay
37' McTominay is forced off with his stomach complaint and is replaced by Martial. It results in Pogba dropping back alongside Fred.
34' CHANCE! Pogba sends Fernandes into the final third and the Portuguese is allowed to check back on his right foot. He launches a right-footed strike across Leno, but the ball drifts agonisingly wide of the post.
33' WIDE! Wan-Bissaka coasts in unmarked at the back post from Shaw's cross from the left flank. He has time, but can only direct his effort wide of the right post.
32' Rashford and Fernandes combine in the final third, and the England man goes for a snapshot from 20 yards, but he sends his effort wide of the target.
30' CHANCE! Smith Rowe runs into the United half and releases the run of Pepe. He performs a couple of stepovers to create room for a strike, but he places his left-footed strike just wide of the left post.
29' Martinelli performs his defensive duties at the back, clearing away Pogba's clever cross towards Rashford behind for a corner. He had to make that intervention for the Gunners.
28' Arsenal continue to threaten as Martinelli angles a cross into the box from the left flank. It interests Lacazette, but just evades his run and travels behind for a goal-kick.
27' Cedric angles the cross from the resulting free-kick towards the back post. David Luiz wheels off the back of his man and heads across goal, but United scramble away the danger before the Gunners can pounce.
26' Pepe runs at Shaw down the right flank and he draws a foul from the United left-back within shooting distance.
25' SAVE! Pepe bends a corner in from the right flank for Xhaka to attack. The midfielder powers a header towards the net, but he sends his strike straight at De Gea.
23' Partey runs at the United defence and goes for goal from 25 yards, but he sends his effort well wide of the target.
22' McTominay is struggling with an apparent injury for the visitors. He has taken a tablet provided by the physio, which might allow him to tough out his issue.
21' Smith Rowe works an offload down the right inside channel for Pepe. He strikes first time from a tight angle, but sends his attempt wide of the target.
20' SAVE! United with a corner on the right flank that is cleared as far as Fred. He lines up a curling strike on his left foot that Leno has to turn past the post at full stretch. 
18' Rashford wins possession from Smith Rowe and surges forward. He has options in the box with Fernandes and Cavani. Rashford offloads to Fernandes on his right, but the cross from the Portuguese is intercepted by Partey.
17' SAVE! Martinelli works the ball to Lacazette, who launches a powerful strike from 20 yards. However, he blasts his effort straight at De Gea and the Spaniard makes a comfortable save.
15' Fernandes catches Xhaka on the ankle with a late challenge. He avoids a booking, but gives away a free-kick.
Cédric Soares
Yellow Card
13' Cedric collides with Fernandes, who hits the deck. The Arsenal man is booked for his challenge and a melee with his compatriot after the fact.
11' Martinelli runs at Wan-Bissaka down the left flank, but loses out to the full-back. David Luiz seizes on the clearance and lines up an ambitious strike on the volley that travels well wide of the target.
9' Both teams are trying to feel their way into the contest. Neither side are taking many risks in their approach at the moment.
7' Xhaka blocks off Rashford down the right flank and inadvertently catches the forward in the face. The England man goes down for a second, but gets to his feet.
5' Arsenal work the ball down the left between Martinelli and Cedric. The latter sends a cross to the back post, but Lacazette cannot direct his header towards a team-mate.
3' Wan-Bissaka surges down the right flank and cuts a cross towards Rashford in the box, but Partey is there to clear the danger.
1' We're underway at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal have won their last two Premier League matches against Manchester United, last winning three in a row in September 1998 under Arsene Wenger.
United have made five changes to their side in response to their defeat against the Blades. Shaw and Lindelof are restored to the back four as Tuanzebe and Telles drop to the bench. Fred and McTominay return to the middle of the park as Pogba pushes forward. Cavani spearheads the attack in front of Pogba, Rashford and Fernandes. Greenwood, Matic and Martial make way and start on the bench.
Arsenal have made one change to their side from their win over Southampton last time out. Bukayo Saka misses out due to a hip problem and is replaced in the final third by Martinelli. Cedric continues at left-back in the absence of Kieran Tierney, who is out with a calf problem. Odegaard starts from the bench following his arrival from Real Madrid on loan.
MANCHESTER UNITED SUBS: Eric Bailly, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Daniel James, Dean Henderson, Alex Telles, Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek, Axel Tuanzebe.
MANCHESTER UNITED (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred; Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba; Edinson Cavani.
ARSENAL SUBS: Gabriel Magalhaes, Martin Odegaard, Willian, Runar Alex Runarsson, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Calum Chambers, Mohamed Elneny, Joe Willock, Eddie Nketiah. 
ARSENAL (4-2-3-1): Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, David Luiz, Cedric Soares; Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka; Gabriel Martinelli, Emile Smith Rowe, Nicolas Pepe; Alexandre Lacazette.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men suffered their worst result of the season, losing 2-1 to Sheffield United at Old Trafford. Just when it seemed that United were rounding into form to compete for the title, they took a huge step back. The Red Devils need to respond against Arsenal tonight with three points. They begin the evening four points off the pace of Manchester City and need to reduce the deficit to put pressure back on their rivals.
Arsenal have been resurgent of late and are meandering their way up the Premier League table. Mikel Arteta was under huge pressure during the Christmas period, but his side have responded over the last month. They earned revenge against Southampton last time out after losing to the Saints in the FA Cup, beating them 3-1 on the road in the league. The Gunners have won five out of their last six matches, conceding only two goals in the process. However, they will be challenged by the Red Devils tonight.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.
