Rangnick told the press (via Manchester Evening News): “Scott McTominay will be back and fit to play, he has been training with us and he will train today, he will be available for the game, the same is true with Raphael Varane. Cristiano Ronaldo is available again, he’s been training with us.”

Supporters will be buzzing

This game against Arsenal is one of Man United’s last chances to put themselves in a position to secure Champions League football next season by securing a spot inside the top four, so supporters will be buzzing that three key players are returning.

Ronaldo’s return will be warmly welcomed by supporters, with the Portuguese striker the current top goalscorer for the club and an inevitable force within the struggling side. His impact this season, scoring 21 goals and contributing three assists, has been crucial.

Varane has struggled with fitness throughout his first season at Old Trafford, making 18 appearances in the Premier League so far, but there is no doubt his influence in the back-line alongside Harry Maguire will be valued against Arsenal today. And, with his experience, he could cause all sorts of problems for their attackers.

Finally, McTominay will return to action today following a foot injury which will be a relief to Rangnick following Pogba’s injury sustained at Anfield leaving him sidelined indefinitely, it will be highly likely due to the injury problems in midfield that he will be instantly reinstated into the starting eleven today.

If Man United can secure all three points at The Emirates, they can match Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur for points in the Premier League table before Spurs kick-off against Brentford this evening. And, if Antonio Conte’s side do go on to fall to defeat away from home, it would put Rangnick and his team in a great position to snatch the top-four spot.
