Predicted Arsenal XI, latest team and injury news vs Man Utd

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has plenty to think about ahead of his side’s trip to Manchester United this evening.

The Gunners bounced back from their defeat to Liverpool with a win over rock-bottom Newcastle United on Saturday, meaning they have lost just one of their last 11 matches across all competitions.

And now they face an out-of-sorts Red Devils outfit with a place inside the top four on the line.

What is your prediction for Arsenal's trip to Manchester United?

Gunners win!

Gunners win!

Draw...

Draw...

United win!

United win!

United’s new interim boss Ralf Rangnick isn’t likely to be in the dugout, so it’ll be Michael Carrick taking the team once again but what sort of lineup will the Spaniard select to try and defeat him?

Here’s what we are predicting ahead of kick-off…

There could be just two changes from the win at the Emirates over the weekend.

One major call facing Arteta is at left-back, does he stick or twist with Nuno Tavares after a pretty impressive display against the Magpies? Kieran Tierney has been pushing for a return and that could come in this fixture.

His experience in big-game ties should see him given the nod over the young Portuguese. He will go into an otherwise unchanged backline alongside Gabriel, Ben White and Takehiro Tomiyasu, in front of shot-stopper Aaron Ramsdale.

The engine room should remain the same with Granit Xhaka still on the sidelines, so Albert Sambi Lokonga keeps his spot next to Thomas Partey.

Starting off with an easy one...

However, further up the pitch, there could be an enforced switch with Bukayo Saka a big injury doubt. He could be replaced by Gabriel Martinelli, as he was when substituted on Saturday, with Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe there to provide further support.

The 20-year-old Brazilian, who was dubbed “very special” by former caretaker boss Freddie Ljungberg has found game time hard to come by, being restricted to 185 top-flight minutes, so this is a huge chance to impress.

Pierre-Emerick Aubamyang has a case to be dropped but it’s likely that Arteta sticks with his skipper.
