Wenger To Make 2 Changes In 4-2-3-1: Predicted Arsenal XI To Face Man Utd

Arsenal get back to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime.
Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech is almost certain to keep his place between the sticks with David Ospina once again on the bench.
Defence: Hector Bellerin has been ruled out for four weeks with ankle ligament damage which he sustained against Tottenham before the international break so Wenger has a big decision to make at right-back.
The boss could opt to play a centre-back like Shkodran Mustafi, Gabriel or Rob Holding out of position but I think we’ll see Carl Jenkinson come in as he’s more of a specialist full-back. Otherwise, we should see a familiar back line with Mustafi alongside Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal at left-back.
Midfield: Santi Cazorla is once again ruled out as the Spaniard is not even able to train as he continue to nurse a niggling Achilles injury so Granit Xhaka should keep his place in the middle of the park alongside Francis Coquelin.
Attack: With Jenkinson likely to start at right-back I think we might see Wenger play Aaron Ramsey out on the right in order to offer more protection to the young full-back. This would mean Theo Walcott being deployed as an impact substitute.
Mesut Ozil will be well rested after being given a breather during the international break while Alex Iwobi could keep his place on the left wing but Wenger has a huge call to make over the inclusion of Alexis Sanchez.
The attacker played – and scored two – in Chile’s World Cup qualifying win over Uruguay on Tuesday night despite carrying a hamstring injury and Arsene says he’ll have to assess the player at training on Friday. However, I have a feeling we’ll take a risk and start Sanchez at Old Trafford.
Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:
