Picking the Best Potential Manchester United Lineup to Face Arsenal on Saturday

After an unconvincing victory over Watford, Manchester United will face Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday. United have already fallen eight points off league leaders Manchester City, and the Red Devils will need to get all three points to stay in the title race.


Here's United's best potential lineup for the vital away fixture.

Goalkeeper

Perhaps the best goalkeeper in the Premier League, David de Gea is sure to start between the sticks for Manchester United.

Defence

  • Valencia

Antonio Valencia has continued his fine form from last season, and his pace will be necessary to exploit Arsenal's backline. Young's double against Watford will likely earn him a place on the left-hand side of United's defence.


After impressing in United's 4-2 win over Watford, Victor Lindelof could start alongside Englishman Chris Smalling in the centre of defence.

Midfield

  • Ander

Expect Ander Herrera to come in for the Nemanja Matic who has been sidelined by a muscular injury. France international Paul Pogba will provide the attacking impetus from midfield.


Jose Mourinho may call upon the service of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial on the wings in order to provide pace and a goalscoring threat. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has gotten significant time under his belt since his return, and Mourinho might be tempted to rely upon the Swede against Arsenal.

Forwards

  • Lukaku

It seems the goals have dried up for Romelu Lukaku as of late, but Mourinho has continued to persist with the Belgian. Still, Lukaku has proven himself as a prolific goalscorer, and it is only a matter of time before he finds the net again.


United will be hoping Lukaku recaptures goalscoring form at the Emirates.
