Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal could give Marcus Rashford a start against Arsenal. Wayne Rooney won't be back any time soon, and Anthony Martial is a doubt after injuring his hamstring before Thursday's game. You can read about that in the Mirror.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is back in training for United, so might only be a week or two from first team action. With Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo also back to fitness, or near it, there's a sign that the injury crisis might be steadily abating. Obviously, paramount to this is that Marouane Fellaini is not anywhere close to a return. This story is in the Manchester Evening News.

In ESPNFC, Van Gaal is talking rubbish!

Van Gaal is talking yet more rubbish here in the Telegraph, where he claims that United's season isn't as bad as others have been claiming. No, it's been much, much worse, a complete failure and a total waste of an excellent opportunity this season.

And in a hat-trick of guff, here's the manager in the Daily Mail, complaining that completely reasonable speculation over Jose Mourinho is outrageous. No, it's not. Ta-ra!
