Starting XI: Arsenal v Manchester United – Barclays Premier League

Manchester United face Arsenal at the Emirates in the Barclays Premier League this evening in what will be seen as another match they need to earn three points in to better their league position. Both sides are struggling through injuries to key players, with United in a worse position, but when you are down, you fight back stronger. Louis van Gaal has done well so far this season to rebuild his side and bring his philosophy to the club, which is starting to take shape. This season only six or seven players have not yet been injured with the manager utilising 37 players so far. Before today, United have only played twelve matches in all competitions, which considering the number of players utilised, just shows how injuries have affected the squad. When United are fully fit, which will hopefully happen this season, they will be more of a team to contend with.

Here are the starting eleven and list of substitutes for both teams this evening:

Manchester United:

1. De Gea;

33. McNair, 12. Smalling, 42. Blackett;

25. Valencia, 16. Carrick, 31. Fellaini, 7. Di Maria, 3. Shaw;

10. Rooney, 20. Van Persie


13. Lindegaard; 8. Mata, 11. Januzaj, 18. Young, 21. Herrera, 24. Fletcher; 49. Wilson



1. Szczęsny;

21. Chambers, 4. Mertesacker, 18. Monreal, 3. Gibbs;

16. Ramsey, 8. Arteta, 10. Wilshere;

15. Oxlade-Chamberlain, 23. Welbeck, 17. Sánchez


26. Martinez; 39. Bellerín; 7. Rosicky, 19. Cazorla, 20. Flamini; 9. Podolski, 12. Giroud
