Sanchez And Lacazette Out, Giroud And Welbeck In – Predicted 3-4-3 Arsenal Line-up To Face Man Utd

Predicted Arsenal Line-up To Face Manchester United In The Premier League

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal put on a show in the mid-week as they destroyed the Terriers 5-0, moving to 4th spot in the Premier League points table. The manager decided not to rest any of his star players on Wednesday and that could come back to haunt them, as they are now without French ace Alexandre Lacazette for the blockbuster this weekend.

Jose Mourinho will resume his rivalry with Arsene Wenger as his side travel to the Emirates, in one of the biggest games of the season. Arsenal have recently tamed local rivals Spurs and will hope to put in a similar performance in this clash.

Team News

Along with Lacazette and Santi Cazorla, Alex Iwobi is also expected to miss this game but the pair of Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott are expected to be back in action.

Formation: 3-4-3

Manager: Arsene Wenger

GK – Petr Cech

Having kept a clean sheet earlier in the week, Cech will hope to have a similar night and will have to have to come out with his A-game.

CB – Laurent Koscielny

The skipper of the side, Koscielny has been excellent at the back in the last few games and will hope to keep the likes of Martial quiet in this game.

CB – Shkodran Mustafi

The German international has been effective, playing at the heart of the defence, and will have to play a major role in marking Romelu Lukaku.

Nacho Monreal

CB – Nacho Monreal

Completing the backline should be Monreal, who has been brilliant for the Gunners since time unknown. One of the most underrated players in the league.

RWB – Hector Bellerin

The Spaniard had a decent night earlier in the week but will have to do a lot more defensive work against the Red Devils.

CM – Granit Xhaka

The Swiss international will have to play a major role against the likes of Pogba and company, giving no time for them to settle in. He could be the weak link that United might want to exploit.

CM – Aaron Ramsey

Ramsey played one his best games of the season against the Terriers and will hope to put on a similar show against Manchester United in this clash.

LWB – Sead Kolasinac

The Bosnian has been at his consistent best this season but this is a game he just cannot afford to go hiding and should continue his good work.

RW – Mesut Ozil

The best player for Arsenal against Huddersfield Town, Ozil is a transfer target for Manchester United and he should be at his best to showcase his quality in front of his prospective buyers.

LW – Danny Welbeck

Welbeck has always been a menace against Manchester United and with Sanchez a doubt, he could be given a chance on the left wing.

ST – Olivier Giroud

With Lacazette out injured, Giroud, who picked up a brace earlier in the week, is expected to start for Arsenal.

Here is how the Gunners might line up:
