Arsenal Likely XI Against Manchester United – Gibbs And Rosicky To Start?

The Premier League action resumes after a two day hiatus as game week 26 brings us what promises to be an absolute cracker of a contest between arch rivals Arsenal and Manchester United. Both these teams come into this highly anticipated clash after a massive let down in the past weekend. While Arsenal were thrashed by Liverpool in a whopping 5-1 margin, a remarkable turn of events in the last minute at Old Trafford left David Moyes and his Manchester United side absolutely shell shocked as Darren Bent’s last gasp header gave Fulham a remarkable two all draw against the Red Devils.

Robin Van Persie’s looping header at Old Trafford gave United the win when these two sides met previously in the current season but things have gradually changed to a great extent. While Arsenal simply cannot afford to drop any further points given their title charge, any let off again for David Moyes means United would be perilously close to missing out on a Champions League berth. So what should be Wenger’s strongest line up against the Red Devils? We here at Soccersouls have the answer.

Goalkeeping:

Wojciech Szczesny needs rest too

Wojciech Szczesny will man the Arsenal goal and the Polish International knows that even if Manchester United aren’t playing well currently, they carry a significant goal threat. Arsene Wenger had a disastrous afternoon at Anfield on Saturday when Liverpool put five past his team but will hope his goalkeeper can at least muster up a clean sheet or make some crucial saves if the Gunners are to be on the right end of the score line after the entire course of ninety minutes.
