Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
One of the biggest games this weekend in the premier league is the clash between Manchester United and Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Both sides have been impressive recently in the English top flight, winning their respective last three league games.
Arsenal are now set to host Jose Mourinho’s side on Saturday evening, after thrashing Huddersfield on Wednesday night.
Manchester United are still eight points behind league leaders Manchester City and they really need all three points from the game against Arsenal, as Pep Guardiola’s side are very much likely to win their next premier league game this weekend.
Summer signing Nemanja Matic suffered an injury during the 4-2 win over Watford at Vicarage Road on Tuesday, and he won’t participate in the Saturday game.
But in his absence, Ander Herrera should return to the starting XI and partner Paul Pogba in the center of the park.
We also expect the likes of Mata, Rashford and Ibrahimovic to replace Martial, Lingard and Lukaku upfront.
At the backside, the trio of Rojo, Lindelof and Smalling should take care of the defense, in the absence of Bailly and Jones.
With De Gea in-between the sticks, here is Manchester United’s strongest possible 3-4-2-1 XI vs Arsenal.
GK – De Gea
DC – Rojo
DC – Lindelof
DC – Smalling
ML – Young
MC – Herrera
MC – Pogba
MR – Valencia
AC – Rashford
AC – Mata
FC – Ibrahimovic
