The Manchester United midfielder can't wait to play in the 'prestigious match'

Bastian Schweinsteiger says he is ready to feature in one of the Premier League’s most-prestigious matches ahead of Manchester United’s clash against Arsenal.

Louis van Gaal’s side can move back to the top of the Premier League table if the Red Devils beat their bitter rivals at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The 20-time English champions have won their last five games in all competitions, including victories over Liverpool, Sunderland and Southampton.

And Schweinsteiger, who moved to United from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window, took to Twitter to preview Sunday’s clash.

Schweinsteiger helped United secure their first Champions League win of the season after a 2-1 victory over Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg at Old Trafford.

The World Cup winner has been a mainstay of Van Gaal’s side following his £6.7m move, forming a midfield partnership with fellow summer signing Morgan Schneiderlin.
