Manchester United and Arsenal contested one of the most intense rivalries in the Premier League era when Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger locked horns, but the days of Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira nearly coming to blows in the Highbury tunnel had faded into the background recent times. Until now. Both clubs are on a roll, with Mikel Arteta's Gunners the only top-flight side with 100 per cent record and Erik ten Hag's resurgent Red Devils winning their last three games. Here's how to watch a Manchester United vs Arsenal live stream.
US soccer fans can tune in on USA Network. You can pick the channel up on streaming services such as Sling (opens in new tab) and on the FuboTV free trial (opens in new tab).

The teams are in and Manchester United make one change as new signing Antony comes in for his Premier League debut, replacing Anthony Elanga on the right wing. That means Marcus Rashford continues up front, with Bruno Fernandes just behind and Jadon Sancho on the left. Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez continue at centre-back. Cristiano Ronaldo is again on the bench.
It's also one change for Mikel Arteta as Oleksandr Zinchenko returns at left-back in place of Kieran Tierney for Arsenal. The front four of Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Jesus returns again, with Granit Xhaka and Albert Sami Lokonga in defensive midfield. Tierney, Fabio Vieira and Eddie Nketiah are all on the bench.
Manchester United are back. Sure, 1-0 wins against Southampton and a troubled Leicester don't unduly quicken the pulse, but the Erik ten Hag revolution had to start somewhere. Jadon Sancho's winner on Thursday night is a sign of the youngster's improving form as United's counterattacking props return. Just don't ask Cristiano Ronaldo (or Harry Maguire, for that matter) what they think of it all.
The buzz around Arsenal is frightening. Mikel Arteta has the whole club singing from the same hymn sheet and the way which his Gunners side have started 2022/23 is proof of the Spaniard's tactics smarts. Gabriels Jesus and Martinelli scored in the midweek defeat of Aston Villa and, though they're missing Thomas Partey and Mo Elneny in midfield, the vibrancy of Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and earworm chant subject William Saliba doesn't look like going away any time soon.
The match kicks off at 4.30pm BST today, Sunday 4th September 2022. Follow our guide on how to watch a Manchester United vs Arsenal live stream from wherever you are in the world.
