The Gunners will be looking for an instant response to Monday night’s disappointing defeat against Swansea City, as they take on Manchester United at Old Trafford. They’ve won once there already this season so should be confident of getting the job done.
Arsenal transfer news
Victory will ensure automatic qualification to the Champions League group stage and condemn United to facing an awkward qualifier. Here’s how we think the Gunners will line-up…
GK) David Ospina
The man who made the costly mistake against Swansea, he’ll be looking to redeem himself with a strong performance here.
RB) Hector Bellerin
With Mathieu Debuchy still a doubt, the youngster should keep his place ahead of Calum Chambers.
CB) Per Mertesacker
Gabriel Paulista will be eyeing a place in the team but it’s hard to see the stand-in captain being dropped for such an important game.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
The Frenchman is very much the leader of this defence, as well as its stand-out player all season. One of the first names on the team-sheet.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Has been very good this season and will likely keep his place ahead of Kieran Gibbs once again.
