Arsenal legend Campbell: Arteta learning on the job; Man Utd favourites

Arsenal hero Sol Campbell thinks Manchester United are favourites to beat his former side on the weekend.

Campbell believes Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is still 'learning on the job', which puts United as frontrunners to take all three points when the teams meet at Old Trafford.

He told Gentingbet: "I think the upset will be if Arsenal win, and deny Manchester United – it will mean they haven't won a Premier League game at home all season.

"Manchester United beating Arsenal wouldn't be an upset, but if Arsenal beat Manchester United then it would be. I wouldn't mind an upset but it's going to be a very difficult game.

"Everyone must understand that Arteta is learning on the job so he will make mistakes, that's for sure.

"I think the team he picked was a good team and they were strong enough to win the game against Leicester. I just don't think Arsenal are playing well enough right now.

"So, it's not really exposing his inexperience, I just think, it's a situation that Arsenal have to get through and that's all."
