    Like us, they dont have much quality outside their first XI. Unfortunately, their first XI are very good and all fit, while we're missing probably our most important player for a tough away like this. It's a big ask.

    I feel this is kind of a free hit. The teams behind us losing points yesterday (bar Spurs) means we aren’t really under that much pressure going into this, Arsenal are. More so if City win.

    Id be more than happy with a draw, but honestly it’s not the end of the world if we lose.

    I agree with the shared notion that I feel more relaxed watching Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea and even Newcastle not winning in the past few days. I feel Arsenal have more to lose from this than we do. A draw would suit us fine and would make them nervous, with City breathing down their neck and knowing they have to play them twice in the league.

    The last time we beat them at the Emirates was when De Gea had his best ever game in 2017.
    And it will take similar heroics today from one of our players or the Arsenal players. I don't fancy the Arsenal under pressure, as the favourites.

    Can't see United getting anything from this match. Not a draw either. That's not playing down United, but rather aknowleding how good Arsenal currently are. They are brilliant.

    to be fair, with jesus one of their best attacking players is injured. you have to give arteta credit for developing this team. but eth did wonders for where we stand now - future looks good

    We all love United
    I would take a point now to be honest. Don’t see us beating them at their place without Casemiro unless McT turns into prime Darren Fletcher today

    I think what a lot of is are looking at is the strength of our team when we counter. Arsenal will bring the game to us. We look strong defensively and can hurt them on the break. Scotty is no casemiro but he can become a nuisance to that Arsenal midfield. All he has to do is win the ball and pass to Eriksen/Bruno.

    Right now I feel more worried about Man City than this lot.
    Not sure what to expect this match though, as long as we are not given a beating but of course I'd take any kind of win right now.

    They're missing Jesus. Doesn't get any bigger than that.

    I doubt McT gets thrown into a starting 11 so abruptly and that too against league leaders.. I have a strong feeling Licha starts as DM next to Fred.. Malacia although shambolic against Arsenal last time around, has improved lately and might start again.. I think the city game was a test for him and he did fairly well.. and Shaw will continue as LCB as Licha is needed at DM..

    I hope my predictions are right because the sight of McT at DM would be a huge risk specially if we concede first.. not saying he hasn’t been good the few games he did play as DM this season but the theme should be to disrupt arsenals midfield dynamic and McT just isn’t the one to do that in my opinion..

    I doubt. Licha has never played in the dm position in the premier league. He won't make a debit in that position against the league leaders. Scot has played there before, he was not bad. We just got a better player

    Fletcher at his peak was in the EPL team of the year, and a huge miss for that season's CL final. If we had him in this team we definitely stand a chance

    The champions league final that we won!. I am not underrating him but Fletcher was never our most important DM.

    I’m sorry but not playing Fred after he put MoTM performance against City? We’ll get overrun completely. McTomminay ffs. Genuinely put a real dumper on the game already.

    No Fred today??

    Would've hoped he could do a man marking job against Odegaard today the same way he did against KDB

    Terrible lineup, we'll get run over quite easily in this game.

    4-1 Arsenal.

    Probably the best lineup we could have hoped for although I still fear it will be a long long afternoon for us.
