Manchester United have been simply brilliant since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge.
The Red Devils are playing the way United should and it’s stunning to see. After beating Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, confidence is high going into another crucial game – this time against Arsenal.
With the race for a spot in the top four hotting up, this is a super opportunity to start building a gap on Sunday’s opponents – and with players returning from injury while Arsenal are on a low from their Europa League defeat, the timing is looking good…
Anyway, let’s delve right into our predicted starting line-up.
When David de Gea’s fit, he plays in these sort of matches. It’s as simple as that. However, he could well have a back five in front of him – this has worked in tricky away games this season.
Diogo Dalot has earned his start. His sheer willingness to win has powered United to victory over the last two fixtures, so we need to see that again. Opposite him, Luke Shaw plays. He’s in the form of his life.
The back three is led by a Chris Smalling who was truly sensational against PSG. Victor Lindelof starts on his left while Eric Bailly plays on the right.
Paul Pogba will be feeling mighty fresh, while both Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera are ready to return from injury. Having this trio fit and ready to play could be key if we want to scoop all three points.
Romelu Lukaku is playing some wonderful stuff right now. His pace and power could cause that Arsenal back line nightmares. Marcus Rashford will do what he does. This pairing has the potential to hurt any defence.
