Manchester United, struggling with injuries and poor form, host an Arsenal side two points off the Premier League summit and unbeaten since the opening day of the season.The animosity surrounding the sides' tussles early in the last decade perhaps had its roots in a fixture at Old Trafford when the result was largely forgotten following a mass brawl that resulted in both teams having points deducted by the FA. Arsenal, who went on to win the title, scored the only goal, but Anders Limpar's effort was largely irrelevant after all but one of the 22 players on the pitch were involved in an unseemly second-half melee.It was perhaps fitting that Arsenal's stunning unbeaten run was ended after 49 games by United the following season at Old Trafford, with Van Nistelrooy gaining revenge by scoring from the spot in the 73rd minute.The teams' rivalry under managers Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger had been typified by tight, edgy and sometimes explosive encounters, but their meeting early the 2011-12 season was anything but as Arsenal suffered their worst defeat since 1927 .
