United are now unbeaten under caretaker manager Solskjaer since he took over from sacked Jose Mourinho last month.
Unai Emery side have bounced back with a 2-0 victory over Chelsea following a London derby defeat at West Ham United.
Both the Gunners and Red Devils are fighting for a Champions League qualification place along with Chelsea.
The North London club are level with the 20-time Premier League champions on 44 points with just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
However, former goalkeeper Seaman says Solskjaer’s current performance at Old Trafford is causing him sleepless nights in the race for a top-four place.
After the victory against Chelsea, Arsenal will be looking to claim a win and bragging rights in the upcoming FA Cup fixture against United. Will Unai Emery or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer take the honors?

“I want to say I’m hopeful, I want to say yeah [Arsenal can benefit from Tottenham’s injuries],” Seaman told talkSPORT.
“Arsenal and Manchester United are playing really well.”
“Tottenham have got these injuries but they’re still playing well and they’re still in with a shout, a slim shout, with the league.”
“It’s really hard to recover from losing players of that quality, and that many players. So I hope it’s Arsenal that do catch them.”
“But, I’m still really afraid of Manchester United because of the confidence they’ve got under Solskjaer.”
Arsenal are also said to be on the lookout for a new technical director and reports suggest that Unai Emery eager to reunite with his former Sevilla director Monchi, currently working at Roma.

And Emery has refused to rule out the reports: “I can only say to you that he’s working in Roma.”
“I worked very well with him in Sevilla for three and a half years, and very well too.”
“My relationship with him is good but this work is for the club and the issue is the club’s responsibility.”
“I can say to you only that he is a good person and a good professional.”
