  • Team news from Old Trafford. Despite strong internet rumours to the contrary, Manchester United striker Robin van Persie does start against his former club this afternoon, but there is no place in the Arsenal team for either Tomas Rosicky or Per Mertesacker. In comes Mathieu Flamini and Thomas Vermaelen.

    Subs: Giggs, Lindegaard, Hernández, Nani, Cleverley, Fellaini, Januzaj

  • Robin van Persie's eventual confirmation as a starter at Old Trafford may be a blow to Arsenal supporters, but there is some good news for the Gunners. Referee Michael Oliver will be taking charge of on-pitch matters and not Mike Riley.

  • Sunderland 1 Manchester City 0: It's approaching the final ten minutes of normal time at the Stadium of Light and still the away side press for the equaliser. Manuel Pellegrini has thrown Edin Dzeko on in place of Alvaro Negrado, but City just cannot find their way past a stubborn Sunderland defence that has been brilliantly marshalled by Wes Brown on his return.

  • Sunderland 1 Manchester City 0: Sunderland are three minutes of injury time away from a fourth consecutive 1-0 home win against Manchester City. Every player bar Pantilimon is camped in the Sunderland half, but the home side are standing up to everything that the visitors throw at them.

  • Full-time - Sunderland 1 Manchester City 0: The manager may have changed but it's the same fate for Manchester City at the Stadium of Light. A fourth consecutive 1-0 defeat at Sunderland comes courtesy of Phil Bardsley's 21st minute goal and, like Newcastle earlier, the credit must go to Gus Poyet's back-line that stood up to everything that City threw at them. Sunderland stay 19th, but this will be a huge confidence boost to the Wearside club for the weeks ahead.

  • To Old Trafford for one of English football's greatest fixtures! Manchester United going head-to-head with Arsenal can conjure a whole host of memories from down the years. Think Sylvain Wiltord winning the title. Think Wayne Rooney’s tumble slaying Arsenal’s Invincibles. Think Ruud van Nistelrooy and Martin Keown. Think Mark Overmars and that Arsenal fan with the beard going postal. Think wonder goals from Ryan Giggs, Thierry Henry and…erm…John O’Shea. Think 8-2 and Arsene Wenger’s meltdown. There's always something to remember when these two meet. What will it be today?

  • Manchester United 0 Arsenal 0: The players have appeared from the Old Trafford tunnel. We've had two upsets today. Considering the circumstances, would a Manchester United home victory constitute a third? I can't even believe I typed that.

  • Manchester United 0 Arsenal 0: Games against Arsenal have played an integral part in the Wayne Rooney story, and the Manchester United man is showing glimpses of being on top of his game again this afternoon. His low strike from outside the box registers the day's first attempt on goal, but it is comfortably dealt with by Wojciech Szczesny.

  • But will it be five, eight or 11 points comes 6pm this evening?

    11/10/2013 4:29:29 PM
  • Manchester United 0 Arsenal 0: It's been a relatively even opening 20 minutes at Old Trafford with neither side able to get in behind their opposing defences. I'm told it's finely poised rather than boring.

  • GOAL! Swansea 0 Stoke 2: Stoke have doubled their lead at the Liberty Stadium courtesy of a quite fantastic, free-flowing team move. Walters and Crouch are both involved and it ends with Stephen Ireland cooly finishing. Stoke have completely reinvented themselves.

  • GOAL! Manchester United 1 Arsenal 0: It had to be Robin van Persie who broke the deadlock and, unsurprisingly, it has come from a set-piece. Wayne Rooney swung over a corner, and the former Arsenal striker got in ahead of Olivier Giroud at the near post and looped his header over Kieran Gibbs, and into the far corner.

  • We really shouldn't have expected anything else...
