The Red Devils head into a clash with their buoyant rivals under pressure after a poor weekend draw against Southampton. Manchester United’s top-four aspirations already hang in the balance ahead of a crucial Premier League fixture against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Jose Mourinho’s side were held 2-2 by Southampton on Saturday – and it could have been worse as they trailed 2-0 – leaving them eight points off the Champions League qualification positions. While the Red Devils fade, the Gunners continue to enjoy a stunning new lease of life under manager Unai Emery, whose latest success was a 4-2 derby victory over Tottenham at the Emirates.
Ashley Young is suspended for the visit of the Gunners and could be replaced by Diogo Dalot who made his PL debut as a substitute against Southampton on Saturday. Alexis Sanchez and Victor Lindelof (both thigh) are out, while Luke Shaw (knock) is to be assessed.
There are also defensive doubts over Phil Jones (knock), Chris Smalling (ankle), Eric Bailly (back) and Antonio Valencia (knock). For Arsenal, midfielder Granit Xhaka is suspended, while Mesut Ozil (back), Nacho Monreal (hamstring) and Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) are being assessed. Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Dinos Mavropanos (groin) are out.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Stats:
- Man Utd are unbeaten in their last 11 PL home matches against Arsenal, since a 1-0 loss in September 2006.
- United, who won both of their PL meetings with Arsenal last season, can now secure a third consecutive victory over them for the first time since November 2012.
- This is the first time United have hosted Arsenal in a midweek PL match since 8 May 2002, when the Gunners won 1-0 to clinch the title thanks to a Sylvain Wiltord strike.
- Arsenal have lost their last three midweek PL matches played on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and conceded three goals in each defeat against Swansea City, Manchester City and Leicester City last season.
We’ll now stick our necks out for Arsenal to snatch all three points in Manchester and further shake things up at Old Trafford, building on their top 4 status in a win currently priced at 3.20. We’ve seen them in great shape against Spurs and this does feel like great value too!
We have been used to thriller clashes between the sides and we’ve seen goals on both ends in four of the last five matchups, which does promise more of the same here. With that in mind, we’ll now also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.66 and hope to see Arsenal more motivated in the final third.
