Arsenal vs Man United

Arsenal take on Manchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday night.

Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer extend his winning run at Old Trafford to eight matches?

Alexis Sanchez update

On Thursday at Carrington, Solskjaer met the press before the Arsenal game.

In his pre-match briefing, the issue of whether Alexis Sanchez will play against Arsenal was raised.

Sanchez has missed large chunks of the season at Old Trafford through injury.

However Solskjaer suggested that Alexis will be involved against his former employers:

He’ll (Alexis Sanchez) be involved. I think he’ll love it if the crowd turn against him. As a player, pride kicks in and you think ‘I’ll show all of you’.

He’s been fantastic in training, his attitude has been spot on so hopefully he’ll enjoy the game.

Man United injury updates

Two players have been ruled out of the Arsenal game.

Neither defender Marcos Rojo and midfielder Marouane Fellaini will play in the FA Cup due to injury.

However Luke Shaw should return to action after a bout of illness.

David De Gea & Anthony Martial

The subject of David De Gea and Anthony Martial agreeing new Man United contracts was also raised.

Solskjaer gave the following updates.
