Predicted Manchester United and Arsenal line-ups

Old Trafford 2

Here is how we predict Manchester United and Arsenal will line up this weekend:

To be played on Sunday 17th May 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Odds: Man Utd 11/8, Draw 5/2, Arsenal 9/5

Manchester United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Sunday in what is a huge match for both sides.

The Gunners’ shock home defeat to Swansea City on Monday evening means the race for a third-place finish is still on and a win for United on Sunday will ensure Arsenal have a tough end to the campaign.

United got back to winning ways last time out when they defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park and the vast majority of players on display there should start this fixture.

Two points currently separate the two sides, but Arsenal’s game in hand against Sunderland next week could yet prove vital.

In early team news, United are without Rafael and Michael Carrick for the rest of the season while there are doubts regarding Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria, Luke Shaw, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

That said, all but Rojo are rated at 75 per cent to recover in time for the game.

As for Arsenal, they will be without Mathieu Debuchy, Danny Welbeck, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mikel Arteta.
