Comments:

League position: 4th Manchester United had now lost just one of the last 13 Premier League meetings with Arsenal (eight wins). United had gained 44 points at home in this season. With one game to play, only champions Chelsea had won more (46). The Red Devils had now gone eight Premier League games without a clean sheet for the first time since September 2001. They had now drawn just two of their last 24 Premier League games at Old Trafford (won 17).

Comments:

League position: 3rd Arsenal’s last Premier League victory at Old Trafford was on September 2006, although they did win there in the FA Cup earlier in this season. The Gunners had now conceded a first-half goal in the Premier League for the first time since New Year's Day against Southampton. They had now picked up no yellow or red cards in five of their last seven Premier League games. There had been a red card in three of the last four meetings between Arsenal and United at Old Trafford in all competitions. Arsenal had now named the same starting XI in six successive Premier League matches for the first time since January 1994, then selected by manager George Graham. The Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Panel ruled on the following: - Arsenal’s goal against Manchester United on Sunday 17th May 2015 was in fact an own goal (Tyler Blackett) and has therefore not been credited to Theo Walcott.
