Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview
Manchester United's honeymoon under manager Ole Solskjaer continued when they staged a stunning turnaround in Paris reversing a first leg 0-2 deficit to beat the home team PSG 3-1 and storm into the Champions League Round of 8. What made the win even more remarkable was that the Red Devils were without most of their key players out owing to reasons ranging from injuries to red-card bans.
A buoyant United now head to the Emirates during the weekend where they face Arsenal who exactly aren't in the best of morales. A humiliating 1-3 Europa League defeat to Rennes away in France marked their mood going into Sunday's crucial Premier league clash.
The Gunners especially need to fear a resurgent Romelu Lukaku who has managed six goals from his last three games, that includes a famous double strike in Paris.
The 25-year old Belgian striker has five career assists against Arsenal, more than against any other opponent.
The Red Devils will be further boosted by the return of Paul Pogba, red-carded in the first-leg encounter against PSG at Old Trafford. But folks like Antonio Valencia, Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard are still on the injury list and look likely to miss the Emirates clash.
Anthony Martial is racing towards recovery but whether he will be able to feature on Sunday remains to be seen. Mid-field stalwarts Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic are still in doubt and so is defender Phil Jones. In such a scenario the starting XI for Solskjaer going into the March 10th game could look like this.
Predicted Man Utd XI: De Gea; Shaw, Lindelof, Smalling, Young; Fred, McTominay, Pogba; Pereira, Lukaku, Rashford.
Arsenal are still lions at home despite their frequent setbacks on the road. When it comes to the Premier League, the Gunners are on an eight-game winning streak, dating back to their 4-2 win over Spurs in December.
Arsenal’s last game in the Premier League was against Tottenham away at the Wembley where the game ended in a 1-1 draw. It was an impressive performance by Arsenal as they played very well to stop a very strong Spurs side from winning at home. In fact, Unai Emery's men would have come away with a win, had it not been for a late penalty missed by Pierre Aubemeyang.
As for team news, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding with knee injuries and Danny Welbeck with an injured ankle will remain out of contention while Lucas Torreira is under suspension after his red card in last week’s North London Derby.
Predicted Arsenal XI: Leno; Monreal, Koscielny, Sokratis, Mustafi; Xhaka, Guendouzi; Iwobi, Ramsey, Mkhitaryan; Lacazette.
In United, though, the Gunners will be facing away-game specialists. The Red Devils have won all six of their away games under Solskjaer, including their 3-1 FA Cup win over Arsenal in January. A win for United will keep them firmly entrenched inside the Top Four where they presently are with 58 points and in the 4th spot. A win for hosts who are just a point behind United and in the 5th place will throw the race for entry into the Top Four wide open with three teams vying for the space – United, Arsenal and Chelsea. Chelsea are in the 6th place with 56 points but have the advantage of having played a game less than the others so far.
