Buoyed by their midweek heroics against Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United will look to get one over on Arsenal in Sunday’s Premier League encounter at the Emirates. Ole Gunnar Solskjær has yet to lose a league game since replacing José Mourinho, and his side head into the match a point and a place clear of the Gunners in the table. A win would move them level with third-placed Tottenham.
Arsenal have been in pretty good form themselves, having dropped just a couple of points in their last four matches. They’re well in the race for Champions League qualification, though their Europa League defeat to Rennes on Thursday is indicative of the fact that manager Unai Emery still has work to do. The Gunners held United to a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture in December; Mourinho was sacked a fortnight later.
United will still be without Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Alexis Sánchez, Phil Jones and Ander Herrera; Nemanja Matić and Anthony Martial should both play after making Solskjær’s travelling squad. For Arsenal, Rob Holding, Danny Welbeck, Héctor Bellerín and Lucas Torreira are suspended; Stephan Lichtsteiner faces a late fitness test.
