Old rivalries are renewed when Manchester United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford in a heavyweight Premier League clash this evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been boosted by the news that Paul Pogba has been passed fit to start after recovering from an ankle knock while Marcus Rashford is also fit to make his return from a groin injury.
Axel Tuanzebe keeps his place in the Man Utd defence as he starts at right-back with Aaron Wan-Bissaka missing out with a knock. Jesse Lingard starts along with Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira while Daniel James lines-up in the attack.
Unai Emery has left Mesut Ozil back in north London so the German playmaker won’t be involved tonight while Kieran Tierney also hasn’t travelled to Manchester with Sead Kolasinac starting at left-back.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is supported by Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka in the Arsenal attack while Granit Xhaka captains the side in midfield with Matteo Guendouzi among those recalled after being rested in the Carabao Cup.
Lucas Torreira is preferred ahead of Dani Ceballos and Joe Willock while Calum Chambers starts at right-back ahead of Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Rob Holding drops to the bench despite his excellent performance in midweek.
