Arsenal host Manchester United in the English Premier League at their Emirates Stadium on Sunday in a match that could have huge implications for both the sides. The Gunners need a win to get back into the top-four places. The Red Devils have been in great form under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and will look to continue their good run.
Unai Emery’s side lost at Rennes in the Europa League on Thursday, while United were brilliant in their Champions League win over PSG.
Arsenal have a strong home record at the Emirates this season, where they have won their last eight Premier League matches. In 11 of their 15 league matches played at this venue, Arsenal have scored at least two goals.
Midfielder Lucas Torreira will be suspended for Sunday, while Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding are out with injuries. The fact that their last home defeat was to United in the FA Cup weighs heavy over the Gunners. A loss on Sunday will leave their top-four hopes hanging by the thread.
Manchester United Preview
United will be full of confidence after earning a miraculous Champions League quarter-finals place with a win over PSG. Solksjaer has a 100% record away from home as United manager, winning nine out of nine.
A clutch of players is missing for United with injuries, as Alexis Sanchez misses his homecoming match. Anthony Martial will be available, while midfielders Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic could also be back. The positivity around the club and the confidence among the players is helping the Red Devils.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Alexandre Lacazette has five goals in his last seven Premier League games and is the man in form for the home side. Keep him in your fantasy side as the Frenchman looks set to excel.
Marcus Rashford showed great nerves in converting the winning penalty in Paris. The young forward has nine goals and six assists this Premier League season.
Romelu Lukaku has stormed back to life under Solksjaer, with the player injuries giving him a good chance to impress. Six goals in his last three matches show that the hunger in the belly has gone up a notch.
