Rojo clears a dangerous Iwobi cross. United have been very disciplined at the back.
SUB: A very slow moving Young is replaced by Rashford.
Ozil volleys a cross into the area and finds Ramsey, who volleys high above the goal.
De Gea has made 14 saves today. What a performance.
Lukaku receives a long ball in the area but his control is poor and it trickles out of touch.
Wenger is furious on the touchline. United are seeing this one out with an 8-0-1 formation.
Lacazette also wants a penalty after a sliding tackle from Smalling in the area. The claim is not as strong as the previous one.
Alexis and Herrera are both booked for some light shoving and arguing on the edge of the area.
Welbeck is tripped in the area by Darmian. It looks like a clear penalty, but nothing is given!
Lukaku has a chance to break but is fouled by Koscielny around 40 yards out. The Arsenal man sees yellow. If it was closer to goal, it surely would have been red.
Just seen a replay of De Gea's double save from earlier in the half. It truly is sensational.
Ramsey lofts in a ball to Welbeck, but the former United striker heads over the bar.
Monreal crosses into the area but Rojo clears. It's all in the United defensive third now.
CHANCE: Welbeck's shot from 20 yards is deflected off Herrera and De Gea has to tip it over the bar.
Monreal's cross into the area is blocked by Young. The crowd shout for handball but nothing is given.
Ramsey shoots from the edge of the area but the bus is in place in front of the United goal. This is a training ground attack vs. defence exercise now.
Ozil finds Ramsey on the edge of the area. He swings it to the back post but Lindelof clears the danger.
SUB: Giroud replaces Kolasinac.
SUB: Darmian replaces Lingard.
Pogba will now miss the Manchester derby next weekend.
Pogba went stud-up on the back of Bellerin's quad. Marriner's decision to send Pogba off seems justified.
Pogba is in trouble for fouling Bellerin on his way into the area. And it's a straight red!
BOOKING: Bellerin sees yellow for bringing down Young on the left flank.
Rojo clears a Koscileny cross for a corner. Young clears it when Sanchez swings it in.
So, United have made a defensive sub and Arsenal an attacking one. Let's see how this pans out.
SUB: Danny Welbeck replaces Xhaka.
Ozil scythes down an advancing Herrera around 30 yards from Arsenal's goal, and avoids a booking.
CHANCE: A powerful Ozil shot from distance is blocked by Lindelof.
SUB: Martial is replaced by Herrera. Martial doesn't look too happy about it.
Ozil swings it in but Lacazette is rightly called offside.
CHANCE: Alexis shoots from 20 yards and De Gea saves brilliantly. Corner.
Arsenal had so much momentum and looked most likely to score next. Now they start again with a two-goal deficit. This game still has goals in it, though.
Arsenal fall foul to another United break! Lingard breaks and finds Pogba on the right. Pogba does brilliantly to beat two men on the right side of the area, then picks out Lingard for a tap-in to an open goal.
Xhaka concedes a free kick to Lingard. For such a thrilling game, there's been surprisingly few disciplinary issues.
United break with Lingard, who finds Lukaku on the left. The Belgian is dispossessed and Arsenal launch a counter of their own.
Matic is okay and will play on.
Ozil swings in a free kick from the edge of the area. Smalling clears to Monreal, who picks out Lacazette in a dangerous position. However, play stops due to a Matic head injury. The Serbian clashed nastily with Koscielny.
Rojo sees yellow for a stamp on Alexis' ankle.
De Gea is having the game of his life today. Outstanding stuff.
CHANCE! Iwobi finds Lacazette in the middle of the area, he beats his man and his shot is saved! Alexis' rebound effort is also saved by De Gea's foot. That's absolutely world-class 'keeping from De Gea.
An Iwobi long shot is deflected for a corner. Pogba heads Ozil's dead ball clear.
More on that Lingard chance: Cech's great save forced the shot onto the post and Martial had a follow-up blocked by Monreal. The ball was at the other end in seconds.
This is easily the game of the season so far. Breathless.
CHANCE! At the other end! Iwobi's shot is saved by De Gea. This is incredible end-to-end stuff!
CHANCE! At the other end, Lingard has a chance to get United's third but his shot is deflected into the post!
That was excellent play from Ramsey. Most players would have tried to blast it in when one-on-one, the Welshman did well to pick out Lacazette instead.
Alexis picks our Ramsey with a superb cross into the area. The Welshman beats the offside trap and chests down to Lacazette. The Frenchman expects to see a flag up but he rifles it into the roof of the net!
Alexis puts a cross in towards Iwobi, which is cleared by a sliding Rojo clearance.
Mick Jagger would be jealous of those moves...
We go again! United, in their black strip, start the second half.
Marriner blows up for half time of a breathless affair. Arsenal will be very disappointed to go in two goals down, having squandered numerous chances to shorten the deficit. United, on the other hand, are constantly looking dangerous on the break.
At the other end, Lukaku and Lingard link up on the edge of the area, but Lingard is unable to pull off a meaningful shot.
Lukaku could have very easily had a goal against a top six side there... not in the right goal, though.
Alexis floats in a free kick and Lukaku's clearance has to be saved by De Gea! Lacazette has a few chances to get a shot off in the scramble in the area, but United escape the danger!
Matic somehow escapes a booking for a cynical trip on Lacazette.
De Gea has already made six saves today. Arsenal have had seven shots on target, while United scored both their on-target efforts.
CHANCE: Bellerin launches a rocket from distance which is saved well by De Gea. Xhaka gets a second bite of the cherry from distance but it is saved once again. Great work from the Spaniard.
Pogba breaks and finds Martial on the left. His cross to Lukaku in the mixer is cleared by Monreal.
CHANCE: Ramsey has a golden chance to pull one back with a shot from eight yards but it deflects for yet another corner!
Lacazette breaks on the left and puts a ball to the feet of Ramsay. Lingard comes back and recovers the ball, but Arsenal win their millionth corner of the half.
Bellerin cuts a dangerous ball into the United area, but is penalised for fouling Young in the process.
Pogba concedes possession near his own corner flag and Ozil picks out Iwobi, who shoots high over the bar. Arsenal's response to going two down has been excellent.
Alexis swings in a corner and De Gea fails to collect after clashing with Smalling. Lacazette scoops a ball towards Ozil on the edge of the area - his low volley is collected by De Gea.
Arsenal immediately respond at the other end and win a corner! We have a game on our hands.
At the other end, it's three on three as Pogba, Martial and Lukaku break. Kolasinac intercepts and nearly steers in an own goal.
Alexis finds Lacazette in the six yard box. The Frenchman's shot is deflected onto the bar by De Gea and falls to Xhaka, whose subsequent shot clips the outside of the post! A massive chance to half the deficit there!
If Young hadn't snuck back to the line to clear, Ozil's free kick would have been in the backof the net.
Ozil lines up the free kick, just right of centre, around 20 yards out. His curling shot is headed clear by Young, who did well to drop back to the near post.
Alexis is fouled by Rojo right on the edge of the area. The Chilean barrel rolls several times and has won a free kick in a very dangerous position.
United break with and look very dangerous with Pogba finding Martial on the left. Arsenal are outnumbered, but United take enough time for the home side to get numbers back.
A nice shot of Lingard's goal...
Arsenal are pressing high looking to get back into this one, which might leave them exposed to another counter.
Ramsey pushes forward on the right, but Ashley Young anticipates the move and deals with it well.
Play continues; Lingard will live to fight another day.
Lingard is getting some physio attention. Mourinho uses the break to bring Pogba a drink and have a little chat.
Young slips near the touchline and is forced to conceded a corner as he clears the ball. The corner falls to Ramsey on the edge of the area, whose shot is deflected and lands on the roof of the net.
Ramsey has a poke from 30 yards but it rolls into De Gea's arms, possibly with the help of a little deflection.
This is end-to-end stuff right now. Arsenal easily could have pulled one back in that movement.
Iwobi and Alexis counter at lightning pace! Iwobi delivers a ball into the box that's fumbled away for yet another corner. Matic clears as far as Lacazette, whose toe-poked effort roles inches wide!
Every time Manchester United counter they look very dangerous.
Bellerin's drilled cross is deflected for another Arsenal corner. Alexis swings it in and Smalling is able to head it clear twice, without much hindrance.
Martial's subtle flicked pass to Lingard for the second United goal was sublime. Look that up on MOTD.
Iwobi replaces the injured Mustafi.
Rojo blocks a Lacazette cross for a corner.
Arsenal are still dominating possession. Ozil finds Alexis 25 yards out, but his chipped pass into the area is cleared.
Mustafi will play no further part, as he limps off the field.
Another goal from another defensive mistake. Mustafi gives up possession to Lingard, who picks out Lukaku. The striker passes to Martial on the edge of the area, and he puts the ball in Lingard's path. Lingard sidefoots it past Cech.
Ozil cuts in a ball to Kolasinac in the area, but he is unable to find Lacazette with his subsequent first-time pass. Arsenal are staying positive and knocking on the door.
Alexis shoots into the wall and Ozil recovers the ball, but the danger is extinguished.
Arsenal pass around the edge of United's box looking for an equaliser. Marriner calls a foul as Smalling brings down Alexis. This is shooting territory.
Cech was nutmegged by Valencia's shot, too.
Kolasinac was dispossessed as a result of a poor cross-field pass by Koscielny. He'll be very disappointed with that.
That came from nowhere! Antonio Valencia dispossesses Kolasinac, plays a one-two with Pogba on the edge of the area and drills a low shot past Petr Cech.
Xhaka fouls Marcos Rojo in a Batlle Of People You Wouldn't Mess With.
Pogba, with several shades of red in his hair tonight, heads the corner wide. Goal kick.
Ashley Young darts down the left flank and sees his cross deflected for a corner by Koscielny.
Alexis attempts a charge down the left flank but the ball goes out of play.
The kick-off had to be retaken for an infringement and there were two Arsenal players in the centre circle. How fun.
Andre Marriner starts proceedings and Arsenal kick off!
The teams are out, Wenger and Mou have shaken each other's hands, mascots are doing mascot things and the action will start very shortly.
United have 11 points more than they had at this stage last season. A win would put them five points behind Man City, whom they face next weekend.
Arsenal have won their last four Saturday teatime kick-offs. Their last loss in this timeslot was at the hands of United in November 2014.
Romelu Lukaku has only scored once in five Premier League visits to the Emirates: a consolation penalty in Everton's 3-1 defeat last term.
Wenger and Mourinho have met 18 times. Le Professeur has won only two of those encounters, while the Special One has claimed eight victories.
Ten minutes until the party gets started.
Arsenal have won 12 home games in a row. With three points today, it will equal the winning streak they set at Highbury between February and November 2005.
Mourinho will not need to be reminded that he's failed to win any of his last 11 away games against top six opposition (D5, L6). Most bookies are putting Arsenal as favourites in this one.
The triumvirate of Ozil, Lacazette and Alexis have started together four times this season. In those games, they've managed seven goals and seven assists.
When asked about his interest in purchasing Mesut Ozil earlier this week, Mourinho said "no comment," with a wry Wenger-esque smile. It might be a shop window opportunity for the German, whose contract expires in 2018.
Jose Mourinho has suggested the United bus will remain parked outside the stadium: "When we have the ball, we are going to attack with 11 players. Even the goalkeeper needs to know what to do when we have the ball.
Arsene Wenger has said some words: "Manchester United is a strong team and I expect us just to cope with the problems they will give us. They will attack as well. They will not only defend.
"Manchester United is doing well at the moment, we are doing well at the moment, so it looks to be a promising game."
Arsenal are in magnificent home form and have beaten United without conceding on their last two visits.
However, only Liverpool have won as many away games at Arsenal as the Red Devils (seven).
The Mighty Zlatan Ibrahimovic is conspicuous by his absence from United's squad this evening.
Perhaps the Swede is taking some much-needed time to hone his comedy routines...
ARSENAL: Cech, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Kolasinac, Ozil, Sanchez, Lacazette. Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Coquelin, Wilshere, Iwobi, Welbeck, Giroud. /// MANCHESTER UTD: De Gea, Valencia, Lindelof, Smalling, Rojo, Young, Matic, Pogba, Lingard, Martial, Lukaku. Subs: Romero, Darmian, Blind, McTominay, Herrera, Mata, Rashford.
It's good news for the Arsenal too, as Alexandre Lacazette is also passed fit to start. The French forward will form a part of the Gunners' holy forward trinity alongside Alexis and Ozil.
Manchester United stick with the same XI that beat Watford midweek. Red Devils fans will no doubt be delighted to learn that Nemanja Matic is fit enough to start.
