Arsenal vs Manchester United: Potential 4-4-2 diamond including Falcao and Van Persie

Arsenal away is always a big game for Manchester United. They might no long be the rivals they once were back in the heady days of Keane and Viera but there is still a palpable animosity between the clubs that makes all the games a real occasion.

Currently, Arsenal are in a mess thanks to their inability to hold onto a lead and fans are baying for questions to be answered and results to improve.

As for United, we could go into fourth place with a win over Arsenal if other results go our way, which is the best scenario we have been in since 2012/13 (thanks David Moyes).

Big games call for big players and if players are ready to return from injury, Louis van Gaal could put out such a strong side against Arsenal who are looking very weak in defence currently.

United are looking equally as fragile but away from home, United need to attack Arsenal and put them under pressure so reverting to the 4-4-2 diamond to gain more attacking influence is crucial.

As would be the return of Radamel Falcao to the side. He might not have been firing on all cylinders this season but few can question his ability.
