Manchester United’s overall outlook has drastically improved since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge.
The Baby Faced Assassin has won seven from seven, including one huge victory in North London already; away at Tottenham Hotspur. This FA Cup game against Arsenal at The Emirates is going to be immensely difficult.
With a place in the fifth round at sake, you’d expect United to go full strength, as the FA Cup is likely to be our best chance at silverware this season. Let’s take a look at the full predicted line-up here:
David de Gea will start in goal. He has been nothing short of immense recently and you’d expect a similar display on Friday night.
Victor Lindelof has improved hugely this term, with the Ice Man looking far more confident with each passing match. Alongside him, Phil Jones is still the best available option. Luke Shaw should have recovered from an illness to be fit to play, while Ashley Young makes up the defence at right-back.
Nemanja Matic will sit at the base of the defence and protect the back four, with Ander Herrera bringing some energy and guile to the team. Paul Pogba’s job will be to create chances and get himself forward.
Marcus Rashford leads the line again and his pace coupled with the ability to stretch the defence is the key to this game. Jesse Lingard starts on the right, with Alexis Sanchez coming into the line-up and trying to get one over on his former employers.
