Wherever in the world you are, stop for a moment. It's Manchester United vs Arsenal, folks! And it's also super Saturday in the English Premier League. Miss the game at your own risk. LIVE UPDATES HERE!

We may not have a name for the derby, but trust us, it is nothing less than an El Clasico or maybe a Kolkata derby in Indian football. Over the decades, the importance of an Arsenal-Manchester United showdown has steadily picked up, thanks to some star footballers, legendary coaches and some unforgettable legacy.

This time around, two managers who do not enjoy a great friendship but share a rivalry that even gets physical at times, take charge of the clubs on Saturday. Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho – two bigwigs of world football -- are out to inspire their respective teams once more to get the bragging rights.

Not just in the ground or on the sidelines, whenever there is a battle between Arsenal and Manchester United, it moves down to every local pub around the world screening the game. Breaking of beer bottles whenever a goal is conceded or expletives thrown to opposition fans whenever a goal is scored is a common thing. 

This time around, well, expect the same. With Mourinho in charge of Manchester United, things have gone to a different level altogether. One thing we have missed in football over the years, every fan has, is the wonderful rivalry between Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger during an Arsenal-Manchester United duel, be it in the English Premier League or in any other competition. David Moyes and Louis van Gaal came later and even they couldn't revive the rivalry.

However, fans and critics now feel that with the already heated-up relationship that Wenger and Mourinho share, it is likely that Red Devils fans will get a glimpse of that same rivalry shared by Ferguson and Wenger in the past. 

So here are all the details you need to catch up with the game. This is the first match of the EPL 2016-17 gameweek 12 and trust us, the weekend could begin on a cracking note.


Arsenal vs Manchester United is set to kick off from the Old Trafford at 6 pm IST [12:30 pm GMT, 7:30 am EST] on November 19, 2016.
