Manchester United will entertain Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday looking to earn the three points which will help them consolidate their position in the league standings. The Red Devils have enjoyed a rich vein of form of late after securing back to back victories in domestic competitions. They will now take on a makeshift Arsenal team, who are likely to make a whole host of changes while keeping an eye on their crucial second leg, semi-final match versus Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Europa League next week.

Mourinho is expected to stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and might name an unchanged side for this encounter. However, the Special One will be without the services of Sergio Romero as the Argentine keeper will miss out due to a knee injury.

4-3-3 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Arsenal

Defence

David De Gea is expected to start in goal for the home team while Joel Castro Pereira has to be content with a place on the bench. The Spanish shot-stopper might be protected by a back four of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in central defence while Ashley Young operates as the left-back and Antonio Valencia is deployed on the right-hand side of the backline.

Matteo Darmian might be named on the bench for this encounter and come on during the contest if required. Jose Mourinho will be hoping that his defenders can keep it tidy at the back versus the Gunners on Sunday so that they have a good chance of securing the three points at Old Trafford which will help them consolidate their second position in the league table.

Midfield

The trio of Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera could be deployed at the centre of the park and the performance of these players will be extremely important if the Manchester outfit are to break down the Arsenal defence on Sunday.

Marouane Fellaini could be available for a place on the bench for this encounter against Arsene Wenger’s side.

Attack

The front three would consist of Romelu Lukaku spearheading the Red Devils attack while Alexis Sanchez looks to use his pace and guile down the left-hand side of the United frontline. Jesse Lingard will start on the right flank and will hope to get his name on the scoresheet as he continues to impress for United this season.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford could be available on the bench and might come on during the contest if required.
