Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta may well elect to stick with the starting XI that eased to a 2-0 win at Tottenham in their most recent outing.

The Gunners have now kept three clean sheets in a row in all competitions and centre back partnership Gabriel and William Saliba will be tasked with keeping out what has been an impressive Man Utd attack in recent weeks.

Fringe player Mohamed Elneny will be assessed after missing the north London derby with a knee problem, while Arsenal are yet to announce imminent new signing Leandro Trossard – he could feature if registration papers were submitted by 12:00pm on Friday.
