Arsenal legend Patrick Viera believes the Gunners have nothing to fear as they prepare to take on Manchester United this weekend, reports talkSPORT.
Arsene Wenger's side currently sit top of the Premier League and hold an eight point advantage over their rivals.
David Moyes has struggled with life at Old Trafford so far this season as he's watched his side slump to eighth place in the league table and Viera believes the Gunners can take advantage of that this weekend.
When asked if the Red Devils should be feared, Viera told talkSPORT: “No I don’t think so. Arsenal will go to United and believe that they can win, more so than a few years ago."
However, the former Gunners captain believes United will still be there or thereabouts come the end of the season and believes the side are currently going through a transitional phase under their new manager.
Viera continued by saying:“United are going through a transition, it’s a difficult period for them, it’s not going to be easy. I still believe though that United will be there at the end of the season challenging for the title.
“When a new manager comes in, after Sir Alex Ferguson has been there for so long, he needs time to set up the team to play the style he wants to play. United will always be United though and, when you look at the past history of the club, it’s impressive.”
The two sides will go head-to-head this Sunday in what is one of the most anticipated matches of the season so far.
