With Michael Carrick set to be in charge for the 3rd consecutive game, Manchester United take on old rivals Arsenal at Old Trafford tonight.15-20 years ago, matches between the Gunners and the Red Devils were highly anticipated and played a significant part in the title race. This, however, has changed over the years. Currently, United are 10th on the premier league table whereas Arsenal are 5th.
In their last premier league games, Arsenal comfortably defeated a struggling Newcastle side 2-0 whereas United may have been contented with a 1-1 draw against table leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge given their current situation. Historically, Old Trafford has not been kind to the Gunners as they have not won 2 consecutive games there since 1979.
So without much ado, here are the confirmed starting lineups for United Vs Arsenal clash.
Manchester United: De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles, Mc Tominay, Fred, Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford, and Ronaldo.
Arsenal: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tavares, Partey, Elneny, Martinelli, Odegard, Smith Rowe and Aubameyang.
