Confirmed Starting XI: Rashford, Pogba return against Arsenal; Greenwood on the bench

Manchester United will come up against Unai Emery’s Arsenal at Old Trafford in the Premier League this evening. This is a much-awaited clash but one which surely has a lack of confidence with United in poor form this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will need to have fight, desire, determination and a way of finding goals.

Since the opening match of the season where United beat Chelsea 4-0, Solskjaer’s side has not looked like scoring a second goal in any match they have played since. In the Premier League, they have kept clean sheets in the Chelsea match and a match against Leicester City a fortnight ago. This is not going to be great reading.

Solskjaer’s side has lost twice in the league, once against Crystal Palace and last week against West Ham. Then there are two 1-1 draws against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton. United recently beat Astana 1-0 in the UEFA Europa League, drawing 1-1 with Rochdale in the Carabao Cup, winning 5-3 on penalties.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Maguire, Young;

McTominay, Pogba;

United and Arsenal have played 230 times in the history of both clubs. United has won 99 times, drawn 48 times and lost 83 times. The last defeat came in the last match played, the reverse fixture last season. Arsenal won 2-0. United did beat Arsenal 3-1 in the FA Cup last season, drawing 2-2 in the Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.
