Mustafi and Welbeck start, 3-4-2-1: Strongest Predicted Arsenal XI vs Manchester United


Arsenal will look to continue their three-man winning in the Premier League when they host Manchester United at the Emirates. The Gunners have won back-to-back games against the Red Devils at home, and they are now aiming for a hat-trick of wins for the first time in 16 years.

Formation: 3-4-2-1


Petr Cech has been ever-present for Premier League duties this term, and he is certain to start in goal this afternoon. The backline is unlikely to see any changes with Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi and Nacho Monreal maintaining their positions in central defence. Likewise, Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac have commanded the right and left wing-back positions respectively since September, and they can be fancied to keep their positions.

Onto the midfield, Aaron Ramsey had a stormer of a game versus Huddersfield with two assists. The Welshman is likely to partner Granit Xhaka in midfield, although the Swiss had an off-day against Huddersfield, where his passing was not up to the mark.

Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are certainties to start in the support attacking roles with the Chilean having recovered from a minor hamstring injury sustained during the latter stages of the 5-0 win over Huddersfield.

With Alexandre Lacazette sidelined with a groin injury, Arsene Wenger has a pick between Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud, and he may go with the former, who offers the added pace in the attack.The Englishman loves scoring against his ex-club with three goals in four previous meetings.
