Confirmed Starting XI: Lukaku, Rashford and Pogba lead the line; Matic returns in 3-4-1-2 formation against Arsenal

Manchester United will travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. Last time in North London, United beat Arsenal 3-1 with Jesse Lingard doing the moonwalk during a 3-1 victory, which saw the side knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup this season. Lingard has form for turning the pitch of the Emirates into his dance floor. Hopefully, he will be fit to play a part in this match, but who knows.

United will still be on cloud nine following their 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes in Paris, drawing 3-3 on aggregate in the UEFA Champions League, winning on away goals. Angel Di Maria’s face was a picture, and it will forever warm my heart knowing that he was just another failure to play at United for that season of obscurity for him, before he found his true calling, playing in a poor league to ensure he remains a star.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Young, Smalling, Lindelof;

Dalot, Fred, Matic, Shaw;

Pogba;

Lukaku, Rashford

Substitutes:

Romero; Bailly, Rojo; Pereira, McTominay; Martial, Greenwood

United and Arsenal have played 229 competitive matches in the history of both clubs, dating back to the first match which was played on the 13 October 1894, a 3-3 draw between Newton Heath and Woolwich Arsenal. United have won 99 times, drawn 48 times and lost 82 times. United are unbeaten in their last four matches, winning both matches at the Emirates in the Premier League and the Emirates FA Cup, and winning and drawing at Old Trafford, both in the Premier League. Arsenal last won on the 7 May 2017.

United are currently in magical form, especially after that magnificent 3-1 win in Paris which saw them reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League this season. In their last six matches, United have won four times, drawn once and lost once. Solskjaer’s side has scored 11 goals, conceded six goals, kept two clean sheets and saw themselves rise back into the top four in the Premier League.

Arsenal might not be in the best of form but what do you expect from the team that seems to be stuck in the same bubble at this stage of the season. The manager has changed but in terms of football, the same problems are there. The defence is awful the majority of the time, players go missing in big matches and their results are just too mixed to suggest that are going to get the better of this confident United side. Three wins, two losses and one draw in the last six, scoring 12 goals, conceding six and keeping two clean sheets.
