CONFIRMED: Arsenal vs Manchester United lineups – Ozil and Mata start
Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates this evening, with both sides eager to get back to winning ways after a disastrous weekend of results.
Arsenal were taken apart by a vibrant Liverpool side at Anfield on Saturday, with Brendan Rodgers’ side coming out 5-1 winners.
Arsene Wenger will be hoping for a quick and impressive response from his side, who could return to the top of the Premier League with a win against their eternal rivals, following Chelsea’s draw with West Brom yesterday, and with Manchester City’s match against Sunderland tonight being called off.
Manchester United’s league struggles continued with a limp 2-2 draw against Fulham at Old Trafford on Sunday, and a defeat today could see them fall 12 points behind Liverpool in the race for fourth before the week is out.
Confirmed Team Lineups:
Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Arteta, Wilshere; Rosicky, Ozil, Cazorla; Giroud
Subs: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Sanogo, Bendtner
Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Smalling, Vidic, Evra; Valencia, Cleverley, Carrick, Mata; Rooney, van Persie
Subs: Lindegaard, Büttner, Ferdinand, Fellaini, Young, Hernandez, Januzaj
