Man Utd  will look to continue their excellent form when they take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.  Here is the side I think Louis van Gaal will pick:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea is certain to keep his place in goal with Sergio Romero once again on the bench.

Defence: Ashley Young struggled badly at left-back during United’s 3-0 defeat to Arsenal before the international break so van Gaal is likely to make a change with Matteo Darmian possibly moving across and Antonio Valencia starting at right-back.

Chris Smalling has been in excellent form so far this season and he should continue his impressive partnership alongside Daley Blind at centre-back.

Paddy McNair and Marcos Rojo are expected to join Luke Shaw on the sidelines.

Midfield: Morgan Schneiderlin could be set for a recall in midfield with Bastian Schweinsteiger favourite to keep his place meaning Michael Carrick could be the man to drop out.

Ander Herrera is pushing for a start but he’s likely to take his place alongside the likes of Marouane Fellaini on the substitutes bench once again.

Attack: Wayne Rooney is in terrible form right now and many fans are calling for him to be dropped. The striker was left out of the England squad for their Euro qualifiers with a minor foot injury but he’s expected to be fit to face his former side this weekend and I don’t see van Gaal leaving him out.

Anthony Martial should continue to lead the line up front with Juan Mata and Memphis Depay in support.

Here is how we think United will line-up:

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?

    Young is nt supposed to play at left or right back he should go to his normal position to be helping the striker, mata to no: 10 roll Rojo to left back and valencia at right back, rooney should be a substitution and the match fit fellani.
