Confirmed Team Lineups: Arsenal vs Man United

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United: De Gea; Young, Smalling, Blind, Darmian; Carrick, Schweinsteiger; Mata, Rooney, Memphis; Martial

Sub: Romero, Jones, McNair, Schneiderlin, Valencia, Fellaini, Wilson

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has made two changes to the side that beat Wolfsburg on Wednesday night, with Ashley Young and Michael Carrick coming in for Antonio Valencia and Morgan Schneiderlin.

The inclusion of Young is an interesting decision as it is not immediately clear where he will play. The Englishman played at right-back against Wolfsburg after coming off the bench but both him and Matteo Darmian are capable of playing on either side.

Elsewhere, Bastian Schweinsteiger keeps his place in the starting XI. The German was superb against Wolfsburg and will be a crucial figure at the Emirates.

Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Memphis Depay line up behind Anthony Martial, who will be confident of maintaining his good form. United will stay on top of the Premier League with a victory but Arsenal will be no pushovers and they will be looking to bounce back from their defeat in Europe this week.
