Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Arsenal FC



What’s got to be the New Year’s resolution for Manchester United? Finding some semblance of consistency! United  have lost to some of the worst teams in the Premier League in: Crystal Palace, West Ham United, Newcastle United, Watford FC and AFC Bournemouth.

In addition to getting beat by low table and relegation fodder sides, they’ve also beaten the big boys. United are still the only team to take points from Liverpool this season, and they’ve defeated the other three teams in front of them in the standings/the rest of the top four.

Un next for United is a trip to Arsenal, a side they split the points with in the reverse fixture earlier this season. Will this be the first start for Paul Pogba since September? Will Eric Bailly get his first action this season, and if so, how much?

Let’s take a look at who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could select for his first team in this one.
