Arsenal Line up vs Manchester United: The Gunners prepare to take on the Red Devils at Old Trafford on Monday night.
Arsenal will travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United on Monday night. The Gunners are currently placed eighth in the league table and could jump five positions to third with a victory over the Red Devils.
It has been a regular pattern as the Gunners fail in the defensive department of the game, while their attacking philosophy has been enthralling, to say the least. The likes of Nicolas Pepe and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang are finding their feet to cause disruption to opponent’s defence and could have their say in front of the goal during the last clash of the Premier League game week 7.
In the previous game which saw Unai Emery’s side edging Aston Villa 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium, they were defensively all over the place. Ainsley Maitland-Niles received a red card in the first half – potentially handing over a mountain to climb in the second half after Wesley scored in the 60th minute. However, Callum Chambers and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang bagged a couple after the 80-minute mark to register a comeback victory.
They will be hoping to leave those fatalities back as they go head-to-head against the injury-plagued Manchester United squad. Should their centre-backs manage to shut down their opponents, the visitors can have joy in their attack. Unai Emery and his side will not have a fantastic opportunity than this to claim all three points.
There are no real favourites heading into this game because of the unpredictability of Arsenal and Manchester United.
We look at Arsenal’s injury news, suspension and predicted lineup for Old Trafford clash.
Alexandre Lacazette will sit out due to an ankle issue. Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney, who were involved in the league cup duty, are most likely to warm the bench.
There are no suspensions for Unai Emery and Arsenal.
Arsenal: Bernd Leno, Ainsley Maitland Niles, Sokratis, David Luiz, Sead Kolasinac, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi, Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe, Bukayo Saka, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
