Manchester United take on Arsenal this afternoon where a win will see us hold on to our third position in the league.

De Gea; Shaw, Lindelof, Smalling, Young; Pogba, Matic, Fred, Dalot; Rashford, Lukaku.

Subs: Romero, Bailly, Rojo, Pereira, McTominay, Martial, Greenwood.

We beat Arsenal 3-1 in this fixture last season, following a masterclass from David de Gea. We repeated that scoreline earlier this season when knocking them out of the FA Cup, thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. All three of those players are, at least, out of the starting XI through injury, despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believing that this would be the game that Martial returned. Ander Herrera is still unavailable but Nemanja Matic returns, replacing Scott McTominay in the starting line-up.

However, we do have Paul Pogba back in the team, who has had a week off after being suspended for our victory over PSG during the week.

Arsenal: Leno; Sokratis, Koscielny, Mustafi; Maitland-Niles, Ramsey, Xhala, Kolasinac; Özil, Lacazette, Aubmeyang.
