United are currently gearing up for Sunday afternoon’s home clash with Arsenal, the first meeting between the two sides since Arsene Wenger announced he would be stepping down as Gunners boss at the end of the season.
Wenger and former Sir Alex Ferguson held a long-standing rivalry around the early 2000s when Arsenal and United were consistently competing for league titles.

And Wenger will come up against another familiar adversary in Jose Mourinho on Sunday, in what will be the final meeting between the rival managers.
Sanchez, who joined United from Arsenal in the January transfer window, spoke ahead of Sunday’s match about the differences between the two clubs.
‘It is very different here,’ Alexis told MUTV as he prepared to face the Gunners for the first time since leaving. ‘I think United is a club with more history and we want to win trophies next year.

‘We need to keep progressing; United is a big club, to which I am still adapting, and I am looking forward to giving everything I’ve got next year and aiming to win everything there is to win.’
United then face Premier League matches against Brighton, West Ham and Watford before the FA Cup final clash with Chelsea to round off the campaign.
Mourinho’s men conceded the Premier League title to rivals Manchester City this month with a shock 1-0 home defeat by West Brom.
