Team News

Manchester United

Injuries have plagued Manchester United in recent time, and it is not getting any better as just yet. They will be without Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly, and Diego Dalot as they haven’t recovered from their injury problems.

Also, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are unlikely to be fit soon enough to feature in the match. Solksjaer could be forced to count on Mason Greenwood to lead the attack.

Arsenal

There has been some improvement from Arsenal lately despite losing some players to injuries. They will travel to Old Trafford without Lacazette and Smith Rowe who are still sidelined because of injuries.

Pierre Aubameyang will still lead the attack for Arsenal with support from Pepe and Ceballos. Bellerin and Tierney started in midweek so that they might make the bench again for the Monday game.

Head to Head Records

Man United had the better over their rival in their last five meetings, with three wins, one draw and one defeat. Arsenal won the previous meeting 2-0 early this year.

Match Prediction

United will be hoping to continue their recent positive home run against Arsenal. Playing at Old Trafford can provide that extra spirit, but can also offer pressure if United can’t get things right. Meanwhile, Arsenal will like to maintain their impressive recent run and grab the win at Old Trafford.

Final Score: 2-2
