Manchester United know that they need a victory at the Emirates this evening if they want to have a realistic chance of catching Arsenal at the top of the table.
Erik ten Hag’s side could fall eleven points behind the Gunners, having played a game more, if they lose tonight, and that would surely end any hopes of a title challenge.
In terms of the team that ten Hag will select, David De Gea will be in goal, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw expected to line up as the two fullbacks. Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez are likely to be the centre-back pairing.
With Casemiro suspended, his fellow countryman Fred may take his place, with Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes making up the rest of the midfield.
Up front, Anthony Martial is unlikely to be fit enough to start, so Wout Weghorst could lead the line, with Antony and Marcus Rashford playing either side of him.
Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Play Arsenal:
De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw, Eriksen, Fernandes, Fred, Antony, Weghorst, Rashford
