Manchester United icon Patrice Evra has claimed Arsenal are ‘scared’ of the Red Devils ahead of Sunday’s blockbuster Premier League clash. The Gunners could make a big statement within the title race by pushing their famous foes to at least one side in north London.

Arsenal could head into the sport just two points ahead of Manchester City on the Premier League summit, albeit with two games in hand.

The second half of the season will provide the final word test of character for Mikel Arteta’s squad, a test they ultimately failed of their top-four pursuit last term.

But they looked a level above Tottenham Hotspur on the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, winning their fifteenth of 18 league games in the present campaign.

And having watched the derby, Evra has backed Arsenal to turn into Premier League champions for the primary time because the ‘Invincibles” success in 2004.

He told Betfair: “Arsenal are complete. The fans don’t think they’ll win the league because they’re scared. I do not see why they will not win the league.

“In that Spurs match, I saw a team playing like champions, and that was in a derby. After all, United are United, and Arsenal have an issue with United.

“Tottenham are afraid of Arsenal, [and] Arsenal are afraid of United. That is all the time how it has been with the way in which we used to beat them. Now, this can be a big game. I need United to go there and put pressure on them.

“Every match, we’re saying, ‘this can be a recent challenge for Arsenal… in the event that they win this game… in the event that they win that game,’ and what do they do? They win the games.

“Finally, it’ll be like a match from back within the day. We will have a correct Arsenal vs United game.”

United have not won on the Emirates Stadium of their last 4 visits, losing in three of them, they usually might be the underdogs again this weekend.

Casemiro’s suspension has opened the door for Arsenal to dominate the midfield battle and flaunt their attacking threat to breach the resolute defence Erik ten Hag has built.

Arteta’s side won’t fear United or their 10-game unbeaten run. They’ll arrive on the Emirates with a job to do, and there’s a growing belief they’ll proceed to amass such results to finish their surprise title sweep.
