Manchester United travel to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon hoping to blow the Premier League title race open with a victory.

The Red Devils are in terrific form but were held to a draw at Crystal palace in midweek after Michael Olise scored a late free kick. They face an Arsenal side currently leading the title race, most recently recording an easy 2-0 win at Tottenham.

Here's the side manager Erik ten Hag may deploy as United seek a first league win at Arsenal since 2017.

Man Utd predicted lineup vs Arsenal (4-2-3-1)

GK: David de Gea - Spoke of his disappointment at Casemiro's suspension but urged his side to move on from that and the 1-1 draw at Palace.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka - Diogo Dalot's recent absence has opened the door for Wan-Bissaka, who has repaid Ten Hag's faith with some impressive performances.

CB: Raphael Varane - Has been physically dominant in aerial duels during United's excellent recent run.

CB: Lisandro Martinez - Came back into central defence against Palace and started some flowing attacks with quick passing from the back.

LB: Luke Shaw - Has had a spell at centre back and Ten Hag has hinted he will be used there again in the future. Should come up against England teammate Bukayo Saka.

CM: Christian Eriksen - Has been United's most diligent supplier of assists this season with seven while operating in a deeper role.

CM: Fred - Casemiro made eight tackles in total against Palace. That's the size of the task awaiting Fred, who is expected to come into central midfield for his suspended compatriot.

RW: Antony - Has scored twice this month in cup competitions, though the former Ajax winger's Premier League outings have been far quieter.

AM: Bruno Fernandes - Was awake when City were sleeping to score that heavily debated goal last weekend. Looking to score at the Emirates for the first time.

LW: Marcus Rashford - Man Utd's main goal threat and somehow shook off an injury to score the winner in the Manchester derby.

ST: Wout Weghorst - Made his debut in midweek against Palace and played a key role in opening up space for Bruno Fernandes' goal.
