Manchester United vs Arsenal: Predicted XI

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea His performance at the Emirates allowed Manchester United to come away with three points. Will be busy again.

Antonio Valencia Will have to be on his toes with Arsenal’s tippy tappy passing that could expose him.

Phil Jones We’ve chosen Jones ahead of Chris Smalling but it was a tight call.

Marcos Rojo Man United’s best centre-back this season simply has to start.

Luke Shaw Big call but Shaw looks ready to come straight back into the starting XI.

Daley Blind Unlike Shaw, we don’t think Michael Carrick should start because midfield will be so congested and energetic which isn’t suited to Carrick’s style of play.

Ander Herrera Arguably United’s most important midfielder now.

Angel di Maria – Was taken off against Newcastle but in a game like this, you need your big players. Step forward Di Maria.

Ashley Young In red hot form and loves scoring against Arsenal. More of the same please Ashley.

Marouane Fellaini – Likely to start as he adds a physical presence.

Wayne Rooney United’s most in-form striker and he’ll need to be on top form tonight.
