4-2-3-1: Manchester United XI vs Arsenal – midfield maestro returns

Manchester United head South this weekend, with a tough game against Arsenal on the agenda. Louis van Gaal’s side sit top of the Premier League and they’ll be looking to reinforce their spot with a good result away at one of the premier sides in the league.

Team selection is key, and Louis van Gaal has certainly been a believer in the ‘if its not broke, don’t fix it’ metaphor this term. The back five has been solid all season-long, and that is certainly not going to change much here – although Ashley Young will probably have to come in.

The midfield two of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Michael Carrick is arguably one of the best in the league, and with a front four of Memphis Depay, Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial leading the way, United will be able to cause problems for any defence.
