Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is hoping to end the club’s 14-year run of failing to win a Premier League game at Old Trafford when theyface Manchester United on Sunday.

After losing 1-0 to Leicester City last weekend, Arteta saw his side claim a 3-0 win against Dundalk in the Europa League on Thursday as they continued their perfect start in that competition.

Arsenal have however now lost consecutive games in the Premier League and Arteta has welcomed the chanceto get back to winning ways by ending their Old Trafford hoodoo.

“I think it’s been 14 years since Arsenal have won a Premier League game at United and, after the defeat like we had against Leicester last week, I think it’s the perfect scenario to go there and try to do that,” Arteta said on Friday.

“I’m not concerned about performances because you can see the trend and how we are evolving. It’s just those margins, how we manage the margins within the games and those game moments when we try to get wins and not lose those games.

“It was againstLiverpoolin a 3-1 defeat, we had two or three chances to do what they did, the same with Manchester City and the one against Leicester which was a different game because they approached the game in a really different way.

“But again, we will go to Old Trafford with the same mindset to go there and try to win the football match and improve, every three or four days. We are in a process and hopefully we will be a more solid and ruthless team week in and week out.”

In Arsenal’s favour ahead of Sunday’s clash is the fact Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have failed to win any of their three home games in the league this season. The Gunners have also won two of their last three Premier League games against the Red Devils with their most recentmatch ending in a 2-0victory at the Emirates.
