Predicted XI: Arsenal vs Man Utd – Rooney and Van Persie start

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea – Not even a dislocated finger can keep De Gea out. Will need him to have a strong game against an Arsenal side who are likely to create lots of chances.

Antonio Valencia – Rafael is still out and United have nowhere else to turn in the senior side.

Paddy McNair – United’s current in-form centre-back.

Chris Smalling A lot of making up to do after his howler against Manchester City.

Luke Shaw – Louis van Gaal won’t risk him if he isn’t ready but hopefully he will be.

Michael Carrick – With Daley Blind out, Carrick should assume his old role.

Angel di Maria – The Argentinian is going to be United’s focal point going forward.

Marouane Fellaini – The diamond formation opens United up to attacks, so Fellaini balances that somewhat.

Juan Mata – With Rooney playing up top, the No.10 role is there for Mata.

Wayne Rooney – On a goalscoring run from England duty

Robin van Persie – Up against his old side, can Van Persie find some much needed form?
