Premier League

Predicted Starting XI: Arsenal vs Manchester United

Manchester United take on Arsenal tomorrow hoping to bounce back from their shock defeat to bottom club Sheffield United.

Manchester United will be hoping to bounce back from their shock defeat to the Premier League's bottom club Sheffield United when they take on Arsenal at the Emirates tomorrow evening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said in the aftermath of the FA Cup win over Liverpool last weekend that he wanted to see a champions mentality in the midweek fixture, but was left disappointed as United slumped to a 2-1 defeat.

It was a lacklustre showing from the Red Devils and there is expected to be some casualties from the squad as the manager rings the changes. In this prediction, Jamie Ward indicated thatD DavidDe Gea will continue in goal ahead of Dean Henderson whilst Victor Lindelof will likely return to the side in place of Axel Tuanzebe to partner Harry Maguire in the centre of defence. Luke Shaw will replace Alex Telles at left-back with Aaron Wan-Bissaka keeping his place on the right.

Paul Pogba is likely to retain his central midfield role after recently rediscovering some of his best form, although Nemanja Matic will drop out of the team and will be replaced by either Fred or Scott McTominay. Bruno Fernandes will continue to spearhead the midfield.

Mason Greenwood will have been disappointed to have been substituted so early in the defeat against The Blades but will be hoping to start a fourth successive game. Marcus Rashford is another who was largely disappointing on Wednesday night but will be preferred on the left hand side.

Anthony Martial could find himself named amongst the substitutes, with Edinson Cavani tasked with leading the line
