Man Utd vs Arsenal: Line-ups
Man Utd to Maintain Consistency
Since the late flurry of goals at Newcastle United, United have collected maximum points from their two Champions League games, as well as earning a share of the spoils at home to Chelsea on the domestic scene. United have scored 11 times for the loss of just two goals since the middle of the month, leaving them high in belief ahead of a fixture which will be regarded as a must-win if they are to make quick headway up the standings.
Arteta may be prepared to drop one of Aubameyang or Lacazette now that Willian is back in contention after injury.With Bukayo Saka having also shaken off a recent knock, the youngster could feature down the left, allowing Aubameyang to play down the middle.
Anthony Martial remains absent for United as he serves the final game of his three-match ban, while Alex Telles will miss a number of fixtures after a positive coronavirus test.Solskjaer is expected to stick with the diamond formation which worked so well against Leipzig, leaving Mason Greenwood in line to partner Rashford in attack.
Sunday’s encounter represents the 233rd competitive meeting between these two sides, with United bidding to record their 100th victory over the Gunners.The Gunners are not too far behind with 84 wins to their name, while only 49 draws have been played out between two of English football’s most decorated clubs.
A week ago, we would have predicted that the Gunners were in good shape to claim a hard-fought point at Old Trafford. However, United’s performance against RB Leipzig means that the pendulum is now swinging in their favour, and we expect the home side to sweep past opposition who are struggling for consistency.
