Arsenal v Manchester United Preview

Ten points and seven places separate the two sides as once-great rivals Arsenal and Manchester United brace themselves for a showdown at the Emirates stadium on Saturday evening, January 30th. Ole Soksjaer's Red Devils will look to erase the humiliation of having gone down to bottom-scrapers Sheffield 1-2 at home while preserving their impressive record on the road.

The Gunners on the other hand were emphatic in their 1-3 away win over Southampton at St Mary's, registering their fifth win from six Premier League outings. Mikel Arteta's Gunners are currently up to ninth in the standings from a struggling 15th not very long ago as they continue with their new-found resurgence.

Arsenal Premier League form: W/W/W/D/W/W

Manchester United Premier League form: W/W/W/D/W/L

Arteta is hoping that 2018-19 Golden Boot winner Pierre Aubameyang could return for the important home fixture having missed the last two games owing to his mother's illness. The 31-year old Gabonese has a phenomenal history against United having scored in four of his five previous appearances against them. Emile Smith Rowe and Thomas Partey both came off with minor muscle issues against Southampton but both will be assessed before kickoff, while new signing Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid may not be handed a start right away having only just arrived. Kieran Tierney's leg injury leaves the defender's start in doubt while Dani Ceballos and Pablo Mari are both likely to remain out.

Eric Bailly who took a knock in training before the Sheffield loss may not be fit in time for the Emirates clash and may give way to Victor Lindelof, who was an unused substitute in midweek.

Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay and Fred will all be pushing for inclusion while Edinson Cavani will hope to lead the charge after Anthony Martial's poor show against Sheffield. Much will be expected of the normally reliable Bruno Fernandes who has now gone through four League games without a goal or an assist.

Arsenal possible starting XI:

Leno (goal); Bellerin, Holding, Luiz, Cedric; Thomas, Xhaka; Saka, Smith Rowe, Pepe; Lacazette

Manchester United possible starting XI:

De Gea (goal); Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani

Manchester United do not have a good recent track record against Arsenal with Solskjaer not having won a single of his four games with the Gunners since April 2018. But it's their stupendous record of straight 17 unbeaten outings in away fixtures that may weigh in on Saturday. Aubameyang's potential absence may not be such of a hindrance for the hosts since Alexander Lacazette’s been getting goals at wanton in his side's revival post-Christmas. January 30th's clash is evenly balanced with a slight bias for United.
