Ronaldo surely cannot fathom being benched for such a crucial game again and could take the place of Marcus Rashford in the first XI, that is if the United boss sticks with the midfield-heavy 4-3-1-2 formation.

Analysis

Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire returns from suspension in time to face the Gunners and is sure to slot straight back into the defence, in spite of his shaky performances this term, with Eric Bailly perhaps being unfairly dropped.

The Gunners recovered from their huge 4-0 loss at Anfield by sealing a 2-0 win against Newcastle at home, while United were able to hold Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in their first league match since the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

Individual performances have saved the club in terms of the Champions League as they have qualified for the knockouts with a game to spare. They are top of Group F with 10 points, 3 points ahead of Villa Real.

The Red Devils on the other hand started the season fairly well with 4 wins in their opening 5 league games in which they were undefeated. Things have gone sour for the team since as they have further registered just 1 win. They are currently 8th in the table 5 points behind their opponents for Thursday.

Arsenal are also enjoying life under the care of a former midfielder, although Mikel Arteta’s project is yielding much more satisfying results and performances.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction

Michael Carrick maintained his unbeaten start as interim manager of Manchester United and the former-midfielder will remain in charge against Arsenal as the Red Devils await the arrival of Ralf Rangnick.

Arsenal are undoubtedly benefitting from the rare absence of European football this season, and they had kept three consecutive clean sheets on the road before losing at Liverpool, although a paltry three goals away from home is the second-fewest in the league behind Norwich City.

Apart from their losses at Etihad and Anfield all of Arsenal’s fixtures on the road have seen a score line of 3 or fewer goals while the hosts have not scored more than a goal in 4 of their preceding 5 league matches.
