Matchday: Team News – Player Ratings – Match Highlights
Match: Arsenal v Manchester United
Stadium: St. Mary’s Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): Sun 10 Dec 12:00
It’s a big match for the Gunners who can gain ground on their rivals with the fixtures on Sunday. Here’s how we think they’ll line up:
GK) Petr Cech
Most of this side picks itself these days meaning Petr Cech will start.
RCB) Laurent Koscielny
- Dusan Vlahovic urged to complete ‘perfect’ transfer – not Arsenal
- ‘Break club record spend or look elsewhere’ Arsenal told
- Arsenal eye player Lionel Messi claimed to be ‘similar to Xavi’
CB) Per Mertesacker
With Shkodran Mustafi out injured, Per Mertesacker is expected to fill in at centre-back for the Gunners.
LCB) Nacho Monreal
RWB) Hector Bellerin
Hector Bellerin will undoubtedly play.
CM) Granit Xhaka
Granit Xhaka will start.
CM) Aaron Ramsey
Aaron Ramsey has been one of the outstanding players for Arsenal in the last month and will surely start.
LWB) Sead Kolasinac
Sead Kolasinac will play.
RAM) Mesut Ozil
The German will surely start alongside the rest of this exciting Arsenal front three.
LAM) Alexis Sanchez
ST) Alexandre Lacazette
It was a surprise to see Alexandre Lacazette’s name on the starting lineup last weekend but it won’t be today.
