It’s Arsenal that will next face up against Manchester United, who will be looking to keep their incredible away game record under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer intact. Unai Emery could be in for an awful week if the Emirates tastes defeat.

Let us have a look at how both teams are likely to lineup for the Sunday game:


The Gunners have been undefeated at the Emirates for quite a while now, but all of that could change once the Red Devils get their mojo going.

In terms of injuries, the London side will still be without Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, and perhaps Stephan Lichtsteiner too. To add to that, Lucas Torreira will remain suspended for the game.

It will be crucial for Emery to use Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey in an apt manner, else risk facing the wrath of a United side that has been fiercely attacking over the recent games.


Goalkeeper: Cech
Defenders: Mustafi, Papastathopoulos, Koscielny, Monreal
Midfielders: Xhaka, Ramsey, Guendouzi
Forwards: Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang, Iwobi

Formation: 4-3-3

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has good news regarding his lengthy injury list with Eric Bailly, who picked up an injury early during the scintillating second leg against PSG in Paris, fit to start.

On a more important note, Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and Anthony Martial are also fit to start. This leaves only Phil Jones, Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, and Matteo Darmian injured and effectively out of action for the game.

Despite the brilliant display that McTominay and Fred put up in the absence of the regular starters, this change in the injury situation may spur Solskjaer to go start them itself although some experimentation may occur late into the game.


Goalkeeper: De Gea
Defenders: Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw
Midfielders: Herrera, Matic, Pogba
Forwards: Rashford, Lukaku, Martial

Formation: 4-3-3
