Confirmed: Manchester United v Arsenal line-ups

Old Trafford 2

Here are the confirmed teams for Manchester United against Arsenal in the FA Cup.

Manchester United will be confident they can make the most of their home advantage in the FA Cup game against Arsenal this evening. United have the edge over Arsenal in recent meetings between the clubs and Louis van Gaal will see this as another chance to beat a big rival and work some confidence into his team. United have been nowhere near their best in the league this season, but this is an opportunity for the side to thrive without the pressure and need to hold a top four spot hanging over them.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will see this as another chance to wear down an opponent with his team’s pure and high pressure brand of attacking football. If the Gunners can defend effectively, there’s no reason they can’t press on and work a victory out of this game. Arsenal showed how well they can play away from home against Manchester City and should be determined to repeat that performance on the red half of the city. Arsenal are of course the current holders of the trophy which gives them the extra incentive to defend it.
