was not having any of ’s suggestion that have climbed above as the pair pondered which of the clubs is the biggest.

Walcott did actually admit that his former side is not the bigger of the two giants, but he did his best to put a case forward for them.

Asked by Micah Richards on which is the bigger club, the former England winger initially said: ‘That’s a stupid question.’

However, he did suggest that Arsenal’s recent success, which saw them finish second in the Premier League last season, ahead of the Red Devils, may have given them an edge.

‘ finished above United so if you go right now, for me, I would have to say them,’ continued Walcott. ‘I feel like they’re bit more organised, especially behind the scenes as well.’

Keane was not having it, grinning and patting Walcott on the back as he said: ‘You’re so naive and young. So naive and young.’

Walcott quickly relented, saying: ‘If you’re talking overall, then United definitely top that.’

Somewhat pointlessly Richards confirmed with Keane that his former club is the bigger of the two and the Irishman replied: ‘Of course.’

While Arsenal cannot bridge that gap with one result on Sunday, they will look to secure the bragging rights and continue their current superiority over United at the Emirates.

The Gunners host the Red Devils in the 4.30pm kick-off on Sunday, with both trying not to fall too far behind early pace-setters Manchester City who have won all four of their league games so far.
