REVEALED: Full Arsenal team news and Expected XI to face Manchester United

Manchester United hosts Arsenal on Thursday evening under the lights at Old Trafford.

Arsenal are coming off a comfortable victory over Newcastle at the weekend and can climb up to fourth in the table with a win away at their old rivals.

The Gunners will be looking to maintain their good run of form, while Manchester United will be hoping to continue a positive start to a post-Ole era.

Ralf Rangnick has arrived in Manchester and will take over as interim manager after this contest, leading the club until the end of the season.

But for now it will be Carrick in charge again as he looks to end his spell in control unbeaten, following a win at Villarreal and a draw at Chelsea.

Arsenal will have to take on this test with two key players missing the tie.

Sead Kolasinac has been out since suffering a terrible injury on international duty. The club reported previously that they hoped he would be able to return to full training in the new year, but the club currently have good cover at left-back.

Granit Xhaka also remains sidelined from his knee injury he suffered against Tottenham back in September, while Bukayo Saka is unconfirmed also.

Here’s our expected Arsenal lineup to face Manchester United: Ramsdale; Tavares, White, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Lokonga, Party; Pepe, Lacazette, Smith-Rowe; Aubameyang.
