Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Arsenal FC

Share

Manchester United host Arsenal FC on Sunday in the Premier League weekend’s headliner fixture. There is some team news for the hosts as Alex Telles, the left back acquired from FC Porto at the tail end of the summer transfer window, has tested positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, he’s showing no symptoms and should be back before too long.

Go here for more on that. Obviously won’t be available this weekend versus Arsenal, and neither will Phil Jones, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that the much maligned central defender still has a future with the club.

“Phil has been injured and had an operation,” Solskjaer said at his press conference on Friday. “He’s working really hard to be back and hopefully he’ll get fit in December.

“When you’re injured you can’t get into the squad. He’s working really diligently to get back in the squad now.”

So with that in mind (also remembering that Anthony Martial is suspended, let’s look at how United might set ’em up in the first team on Sunday.
