Strongest Manchester United Line-up To Face Arsenal: Young Out Januzaj In

Manchester United strongest line up against Arsenal

Manchester United’s season has now gone from bad to worse. As a shell shocked Old Trafford witnessed Darren Bent’s header which gave Fulham a remarkable two all draw against the Red Devils, the Theater of Dreams suddenly looked like an epitome of utter shock and despair. United had some resurgence in the course of the counter when they battled from a goal down to score two in as many minutes to go ahead but all of that went in vain. The result meant United are now nine points off a Champions League place and in serious danger of missing out on Europe’s elite competition. The Red Devils now face herculean task in midweek as they travel to the Emirates to take on an Arsenal side who were thrashed 5-1 by Liverpool at Anfield. Can Moyes provide the spark which could invigorate a win against the Gunners or will they return empty handed. What should be the line up for David Moyes? We here at Soccersouls have the answer for our readers.

Goalkeeping and Defense

David De Gea wasn’t surely not to be blamed for Fulham’s both goals on Sunday. The Spanish International had very little to do throughout the entire game however stats would say he let a dead and buried Fulham side to score two past his net. De Gea now faces an even bigger challenge at the Emirates to take on an Arsenal side, who have simply been sensational at home this season.

While Rafael must start in the right back role, expect Patrice Evra filling up the other wing back role. Both the full backs will have a very hard time dealing with Cazorla and Chamberlain, thus they need to be ready for the challenge right from the start. While Arsenal will look to create space in the middle, it will be very important for both of Rafael and Evra to put pressure on Arsenal’s wide players by barging forward as retreating in a shell would simply not help. Talking of the center back partnership, Nemanja Vidic and Chris Smalling (even though his form is bit of a concern) should start in the middle as the Serbian-English pair will face a tough time to control Arsenal’s strong midfield.
