Wenger’s side have a six-point advantage over the Red Devils but the Gunners have been rocked by injuries ahead of the much-anticipated match at Old Trafford.

Hector Bellerin and Santi Cazorla have been ruled out for several weeks and Alexis Sanchez, who suffered a low grade tear in his hamstring while away with Chile, is a doubt for Saturday.

On the all-important clash, Merson predicted: ‘I think this will be a draw.

‘Arsenal thought they could turn up in February and win, and ended up getting beaten 3-2.’

Merson, who made 327 appearances for Arsenal from 1985 to 1997, believes Wenger is using his row with the Chilean FA over Sanchez as an excuse before the all-important league tie.

He added: ‘Wenger is moaning about Alexis Sanchez and Chile, I think he’s just starting to make excuses already.

‘Really, Arsenal should win this game on form but with Jose Mourinho’s record against Arsenal, I think he has a hold over him.’
