The Race for the top four is getting tougher and tighter as we approach the end of the season. The Gunners have already displaced Manchester United from the fourth position after beating Watford 3-2 on Sunday. On the other hand, Manchester United lost 4-1League leaders Manchester City. The Gunners have an added advantage over The Red Devils because they have three games in hand meaning Arsenal has 13 matches remaining while Manchester United only has 10 matches remaining.

In this piece am going to share with you the venue, kick-off time, date, and possible lineups for the second leg fixtures.

Gabriel will partner up with Ben White in the center back positions while Tomiyasu and Tierney will start as the full-backs. Xhaka, Thomas Partry and Martin Ondeegard will control the midfield. The attack will comprise Lacazette, Saka, and Smith Rowe.
Manchester United's possible lineup
Ralf Rangnick might line up in a 4-3-3 formation after abandoning his favorite 4-2-2-2 formation. David De Gea will start in between the sticks. The defense will comprise Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Arron Wan Bissaka, and Luke Shaw. Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, and Bruno Fernandes will control the midfield. Ronald will lead the attack and will be supported by Marcus Rashford and Jodan Sancho.
