Arsenal Team News

Hector Bellerin will be out of action for the rest of the season after sustaining a serious knee injury, which means Stephan Lichsteiner or Ainsley Maitland-Niles will be filling in.

Henrikh Mkitaryan is expected to be back in training this week, but Fridayโ€™s clash against former side Manchester United may come too soon for the Armenian.

Emery has had Ozil in and out of the team all season, but the German will be hoping to feature on Friday night.

Possible Line up

Cech; Lichsteiner, Mustafi, Sokratis, Monreal; Guendouzi, Xhaka; Willock, Ozil, Iwobi; Lacazette

 

Manchester United Team News

Ole Gunnar Soskjaer will be looking to maintain the Reds unbeaten run when they go up against Arsenal on Friday night. It is yet to be confirmed if Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo will be available for selection. Shaw fell ill following up to their victory over Brighton.

Last week Solskjaer announced that Marouane Fellaini is expected to be out for three weeks due to a calf injury but he expects former Arsenalโ€™s forward Alexis Sanchez to return against his former club after missing the last two games through injury.

Possible Lineup

De Gea; Young, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; Herrera, Matic, Pogba; Mata, Lukaku, Alexis
