When Manchester United hosts Arsenal at Old Trafford this afternoon, they’ll be looking to get back to winning ways.

The Red Devils are presently three points behind Newcastle United and Chelsea, who are ranked seventh and sixth in the league, respectively.

Additionally, both of those teams have a better goal differential. For United to have any hope of making it to Europe the following season, they must defeat the Gunners.

With just one loss over the course of 16 seasons, the Red Devils enjoy an outstanding home league record versus Arsenal.

A win tonight would take a bite out of the Gunners’ already low chances of winning the league.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Throughout the league season, Andre Onana has started every minute in goal. Despite a patchy performance history, the Cameroonian standout is still the manager Erik ten Hag’s first choice.

That defense from the 4-0 loss to Crystal Palace might be in front of him. Given that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is more at ease playing at right back than left, Diogo Dalot may start at left back.

After a temporary knee injury, Scott McTominay is back in the lineup, but Ten Hag might stick with Casemiro and Jonny Evans in center defense because they had more training sessions together.

Alternatively, McTominay might start with Kobbie Mainoo in a defensive midfield role. Following a string of poor performances, Christian Eriksen is anticipated to be benched.

In the future, there might be a few adjustments. Despite being sidelined for his first senior match on Monday due to injury, Bruno Fernandes has been cleared to play against the Gunners.

Mason Mount, who is hurt again, will be replaced by him at position ten.

Alejandro Garnacho ought to go to the right wing now that Marcus Rashford is back in the mix following his personal injury. Antony will drop to the bench and Rashford will take his place on the left wing again.

The 26-year-old has had a fine spell against Arsenal with four goals in his last three games.

Rasmus Hojlund is guaranteed to lead the line with Anthony Martial yet to make his comeback. His physical presence could be key to unsettling Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba.
