Confirmed lineups: Man Utd vs Arsenal

Manchester United are set to host Arsenal in the Premier League this afternoon with both teams in need of a win to keep in touch with the top four.

We were clear and convincing 5-0 winners over RB Leipzig in the Champions League midweek and need to start replicating our European form domestically.

Mikel Arteta was able to rotate his side on Thursday night as the Gunners were only involved in the Europa League, beating Dundalk 3-0 in North London. They can expect to have the fresher of the two squads today.

The two teams are confirmed as:

Manchester United

David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes; Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford

Substitutes: Dean Henderson, Brandon Williams, Axel Tuanzebe, Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek, Juan Mata, Edinson Cavani

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to have gone with a 4-4-2 diamond once again, with Mason Greenwood supporting Marcus Rashford in attack as Anthony Martial completes his domestic suspension.

Donny van de Beek drops back to the bench after starting versus RB Leipzig.


Bernd Leno; Rob Holding, Gabriel, Kieran Tierney; Hector Bellerin, Mohamed Elneny, Thomas Partey, Bukayo Saka; Willian, Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Substitutes: Alex Runarsson, Shkodran Mustafi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Granit Xhaka, Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe, Eddie Nketiah

The visitors come to Old Trafford today in a 3-4-3 formation. Kieran Tierney likes to get forward from his left centre-back role whilst Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been largely ineffective for Arsenal in recent weeks, but we know what he’s capable of.

Mohamed Elneny partners new signing Thomas Partey in central midfield as both Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos are among the substitutes. Unfortunately for us today, there is no David Luiz.
