Arsenal vs Manchester United Lineups and Last Match

Arsenal

The Gunners through away 2pts last time out at home to Fulham. Despite going behind in the very first minute, Arsenal scored twice in the second half through a Saka penalty and a goal from Nketiah to move 2-1 up with just 18-minutes left on the clock. However, Arteta's men failed to see out the victory, conceding a late equaliser much to the disappointment of the home faithful. Nketiah is a slight doubt with a knee injury, while Timber and Elneny have been ruled out once again this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Ramsdale (GK), White, Kiwior, Saliba, Partey, Ødegaard, Rice, Havertz, Saka, Jesus  & Martinelli

Man Utd

Man Utd made hard work of their home game against Nottingham Forest last weekend but did eventually do enough to win the game with the help of VAR. Forest scored twice inside the opening 4-minutes to stun everyone inside Old Trafford but Eriksen pulled a goal back in the 17th minute and in the second half Casemiro made it 2-2 before Fernandes converted a controversial penalty to complete the comeback. Mainoo, Shaw, Mount, Varane, Malacia, Hojlund, Diallo and Heaton could all miss the trip to the capital this weekend due to injury.

Predicted Lineup – Onana (GK), Lindelöf, Dalot, Wan-Bissaka, Martínez, Eriksen, Casemiro, Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford & Antony

Player to Watch: Martain Odegaard

Arsenal's 24-year-old playmaker, Odegaard, impressed for the Gunners last season and has started the new campaign in equally impressive and consistent form.

The Norwegian international scored 15 goals in the Premier League last season and already has one goal and one assist to his name in the 2023/24 campaign.

In a game where we are expecting goals for both teams and plenty of attacking play, Odegaard could make all the difference between a win and a defeat for the home side this weekend as we expect the battle in midfielder to decide the destination of all 3pts.
