Anthony Martial has been unable to recover from a hamstring problem in time for Manchester United's game against Arsenal, so teenage striker Marcus Rashford starts for the home side in attack.

He is supported by Juan Mata, Memphis and Jesse Lingard behind him, with Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera at the base of the midfield.

In defence, United are theoretically bolstered by the return of Marcos Rojo at left back, and Michael Carrick partners Daley Blind in central defence as Chris Smalling is out injured. Guillermo Varela completes the back four, with David de Gea able to replace Sergio Romero in goal.

The bench is made up of the standard waifs and strays, and United will not be looking forward to this match.
