Manchester United v Arsenal: Premier League match preview & predicted line ups

Arsene Wenger’s team chased shadows for much of their 2-0 first leg home defeat to Barcelona on Tuesday and having won the FA Cup for the past two seasons, Gooners are desperate to see their side finally bring home the Premier League trophy.

To keep up the pace with Leicester and Spurs, Arsenal simply have to win at Old Trafford. With only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla missing through injury, they certainly have the players available to secure victory.

Manchester United are likely to play a lot of youngsters again, but with the instant impact supplied by Marcus Rashford, perhaps it isn’t the worst policy.
