Manchester United return to Premier League action on Monday night, as they welcome Unai Emery’s Arsenal to Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men have hardly been convincing in recent weeks, and will be looking to bounce back from the 2-0 humiliation they suffered away at West Ham in their last league fixture.
The good news is that while United now seem to be in perennial crisis, Arsenal are only ever days away from entering into one. Emery’s ever-inconsistent Gunners are only three points above United in the table, and if any of the traditional ‘big sides’ were there for the taking, it’s them.
Paul Pogba should return to play his first Premier League fixture in a while, but United are still hampered by injury problems. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Diogo Dalot and Eric Bailly are the biggest absences; Luke Shaw might join them on the sidelines. Arsenal are missing two familiar faces: Alexandre Lacazette and Héctor Bellerín.
