Arsenal face Manchester United on away turf as the visitors look to get a result against a booming side in the Premier League.
Arsenal will face Manchester United on Sunday evening as Mikel Arteta‘s side are back on away grounds for in the Premier League. The Gunners are back from a 3-0 win over Dundalk in their Europa League fixture at home.
The North Londoners will be travelling to the Old Trafford for their game against the Red Devils and will be focused on winning all three points against a formidable United side. Coach Mikel Arteta will be looking to field his best players in the starting lineup for this feisty clash.
Arsenal will be looking to make a comeback in the league as last week they were defeated by Leicester City at home as striker Jamie Vardy scored a late goal in the 80th minute to hand the Gunners their second defeat in the Premier League. They will be looking to inject life into their league campaign having been stationed 12th in the standings since last week.
Ahead of his clash against Solskjaer’s side, Mikel Arteta was wary of their attack.
I think that since the lockdown, Ole has managed to improve that a lot and you can see that at the end of the season, the amount of goals and types of goals they were scoring. They are a threat.
The North London will field an eleven which will see Bernd Leno keep his place between the sticks. Their defence will probably consist of a back three of Gabriel Magalhaes, David Luiz and Granit Xhaka. Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi will likely miss out on a starting spot in this crunch battle.
Their midfield will likely consist double pivot of Thomas Partey and Dani Ceballos with the Ghanaian international operating as defensive midfield, hence giving the Spaniard the freedom to contribute more in the final third. Kieran Tierney will play as the attacking wingback on the left with Hecton Bellerin providing his presence on the right.
The front three will feature Pierre Emerick Aubameyang on the right-wing whereas Bukayo Saka will be provided with the room to start from the left-wing and Alexander Lacazette will be expected to operate as the central striker in the forward line. Nicolas Pepe may continue to be omitted as will Willian. All eyes will be on the captain Auba to deliver as he just has one goal in the league so far this season.
