Daley Blind is out for the foreseeable future with a ligament problem. Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Radamel Falcao have all been ruled out, and they’ll be late fitness tests for David de Gea, Luke Shaw and Angel di Maria.

Last meeting: Arsenal 0-0 Manchester United

Last time these sides met was a drab affair, United were the better team comfortably, but a lot has changed since then.

A score draw looks on the cards here, and it wouldn’t be all that surprising if Danny Welbeck scored their goal. Hopefully Van Persie can once again find the net against his former team, too.
