Wenger To Make 2 Changes: Predicted Arsenal Starting XI To Face Man Utd

By on February 27, 2016

Arsenal will be looking to give their title challenge a major boost when they take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech is certain to keep his place in goal ahead of David Ospina and Wenger will be looking for another top display from the Czech international.

Defence: Gabriel will be handed a late fitness test after returning to full training following a hamstring injury but Per Mertesacker could keep his place alongside Laurent Koscielny at the back.

Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal are the established first choice full-backs so they’re expected to keep their places ahead of Calum Chambers and Kieran Gibbs.


Midfield: Wenger is unlikely to make any changes to his midfield so I think we’ll see Francis Coquelin and Aaron Ramsey line-up in the middle of the park. Mathieu Flamini came under huge criticism after giving away a needless penalty during the defeat to Barcelona so Mohamed Elneny may be recalled to the squad in place of the Frenchman.

Attack: Danny Welbeck continued his comeback from injury with another lively display off the bench in midweek and many feel the 25-year-old could be set to start against his former club tomorrow. Olivier Giroud’s form has dipped in recent weeks and he’s suffering something of a goal drought so we could see Welbeck leading the line on Sunday.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been ruled out with a knee injury so Theo Walcott is favourite to come in to the side and join Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in attack.

Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:


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

    Wenger is a stupid coach he refuse to sign experience players apart from sanches and ozil other players ar inexperience.to sign a good striker is a problem.if arsenal would have sanches type of player in different position like 6 or 7 arsenal would have won champions league long ago.so problem of arsenal is wenger.cant all arsenal fans see d difference between quality players and in experience player u see d way messi score d first goal and u see how chambalin and geroud scuandard those chances.wenga must leave.

    I would rather Elneny replaces Ramsey. Ramsey is very off form is one of those players that has killed the fluidity of arsenal team. He has failed to cover for Santiago Carzola. That’s y we can’t score. He has no or less vision for a midfielder.

      Ramsey has been so inconsistent lately. elneny woud be an ideal replacement.

      Iwobi is even proving to be productive as well. He has pace and great vision.

    If we dont beat united today, we may as well kiss the title goodbye. We have allowed leicester too much room to stretch way ahead

    whatever happened to the 4-4-2 systems of yore? i’d pay to watch a sanchez, coquelin, oezil & elneny midfield and giroud pair up welbeck up front.
