Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Arsenal FC


Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t worried at all about an emotional let down from Wednesday night. United made Champions League history and overcame 16/1 odds to overturn a 2-0 deficit, and win at Paris Saint-Germain, and in the process advance through to the UCL quarterfinals.

“There will be no problem whatsoever,” Solskjaer said of getting his team amped for Sunday’s visit to Arsenal for a Premier League fixture. “We’ve gone through to the quarterfinals, which is what we expect from Man United.”


“It was the way that it happened. The celebrations at the end are just what happens when you win like that. Arsenal is a fantastic game to get yourselves ready for.”

Let’s take a look at who the Norwegian may select for his first team on the pitch this weekend. On a side note, here is a link to a list of three United players who may be out the Old Trafford exit door this summer.

We believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will get it done here, just like we believe he should get the managerial job beyond this season. We doubted him before the PSG match, and don’t want to make the same mistake again. Solskjaer, Victor Lindelof, and company believed they could make UCL history and pull off the upset in Paris, and they did.

The Norwegian really has something special going on with this team.
