Manchester United
Manchester United were boosted by the return to training of a few critical stars like Marcus Rashford, Lisandro Martinez, Bruno Fernandes, and Scott McTominay ahead of the game against Arsenal. Even Anthony Martial has taken part in full training after recovering from a groin operation.

Erik ten Hag has a few notable absentees to contend with, as defenders Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof, and Raphael Varane still need to be in contention. Meanwhile, ten Hag also ruled out the possibility of Martinez playing this clash as he has only returned this week after a long period out of the game.

He also ruled out Mason Mount from the Arsenal clash after a problem picked up in training. With the many defensive injuries, ten Hag might have to name Casemiro and Jonny Evans as his starting central defenders. Still, Fernandes’s inclusion could spark a turnaround in the attacking third.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Onana; Dalot, Casemiro, Evans, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund

Ahead of the trip to Old Trafford, there were some minor doubts within the Arsenal camp, with Bukayo Saka and Takehiro Tomiyasu not being spotted during training ahead of the trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United. Mikel Arteta did not rule them out, which is probably an indication that they might have sat out due to load management.

Hence, the duo is expected to start as they have done in Arteta’s strongest-looking team in recent weeks. That means the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus might have to settle for a place on the bench, with the latter likely a bit disappointed after not making the cut for the Brazilian national side for the Copa America.

Arteta will unlikely change anything with his lineup, which has started the last three games in a row. Hence, Jorginho, who signed a new deal this week, will be used from the bench, as Thomas Partey will start at the base of Arsenal’s midfield alongside Declan Rice and Martin Odegaard. Gabriel Martinelli must also stay content with a place on the bench, as Leandro Trossard will take the left wing.

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Partey, Rice; Saka, Havertz, Trossard

Prediction: Manchester United 1-3 Arsenal
Manchester United have surprised Arsenal many times at Old Trafford when they have been abject before an encounter in the past. However, this time, the depleted defensive ranks will play a big part in their downfall and probably a sad end to their season. Arsenal are purring with confidence ahead of this challenging trip, but they will be aware of the dangers of a sloppy performance at this venue. However, Mikel Arteta seems to have a well-drilled side and a big plan to overcome adversity and take a big win out of Old Trafford on Sunday.
