Arsenal take on Manchester United in the FA Cup on Friday evening and we think Unai Emery will name a pretty similar side to the one which beat Chelsea last weekend.
Team News – Player Ratings – Match Highlights
Match: Arsenal v Manchester United
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick-Off (UK Time): 19:55 25/01/2019
Here’s how we think the Gunners will line up:
Arsenal’s cup goalkeeper should come in for Bernd Leno on Friday night.
- Reports: Arsenal Identify Bayer Leverkusen Midfielder As A Replacement Mesut Ozil
- Loanee David Ospina Expects Arsenal Return But His Napoli Manager Disagrees
- Cech Admits Arsenal Have Made It Difficult For Themselves In Europa League
The injury to Hector Bellerin will offer a chance for Ainsley Maitland-Niles to grab a starting spot.
He’ll start after an impressive performance last weekend.
Arsenal’s club captain will play.
Sead Kolasinac will probably hold onto his starting spot but it wouldn’t be a major shock to see Nacho Monreal’s name on the team sheet.
He’ll play in midfield.
Lucas Torreira will play in what we believe to be a similar role to the one he operated in last weekend.
Unai Emery hasn’t been scared to start Matteo Guendouzi in big matches this season.
He should start.
Arsenal’s top goalscorer will surely play from the off.
Alexandre Lacazette has scored in most of Arsenal’s big matches this season and we think he’ll start yet again.
