Alexandre Lacazette says the future of all Arsenal players are on the line as the club continue to search for Arsene Wenger's replacement.

The Gunners go up against old rivals Manchester United on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, with Wenger heading to Old Trafford for the final time as manager after 22 years at the helm.

Arsene Wenger recalls some lively encounters between Man Utd and Arsenal

"Of course I knew about the rivalry. I remember Sylvain Wiltord's goal in the gold shirt [in 2002 to win the title]. I was a real fan. But now it is for me to play and have a good performance as well.

"It will be hard because I have never been to Old Trafford but I know every time you go there it is hard.

"When you play for Arsenal these kind of games come every three days - we're having a lot of big games and little recovery but we just want to keep going and put on a good performance."
