The 29-year-old has 10 league goals against the Gunners, equal with Robbie Fowler’s total against the North London club.

His most memorable occasions against Arsene Wenger’s side have come for both Everton and United. He announced his arrival with two goals against the North Londoners in a 2-1 victory for the Toffees in 2002, while he also bagged a hat trick for the Red Devils in their 8-2 drubbing of them in 2011.

The forward has scored 12 times in all competitions against the Gunners, but hasn’t netted since his hat trick in 2011.

The next players in the list are Didier Drogba and Teddy Sheringham, with eight goals each.

The England skipper will hope to carry his international form in to his club, having scored three in his last two matches for the Three Lions. He’s grabbed a very impressive eight in 13 for Roy Hodgson’s side over the whole year. However, he has only managed three so far for Man United.
