Arsenal will be aiming to continue their unbeaten Premier League streak when they entertain Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium tonight.
The Gunners have made a mini-revival with five wins and one draw from the last six league games and that sees them ninth on the table.
They registered a 1-0 triumph over the Red Devils on the road in November and have the chance to do the double over them for the first time since 2007.
Bernd Leno remains the Gunners’ automatic choice in goal and has played every minute of their Premier League campaign. He is expected to start against the Red Devils.
In the backline, there may be the solitary change with Kieran Tierney replacing Cedric Soares at left-back. There is the temptation to play Cedric ahead of Hector Bellerin at right-back, but the latter should get the nod as he is quicker tracking back.
Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey have recently formed a solid partnership in the centre of the park. Xhaka has impressed with his tackling and distribution in the final third since his return from suspension. Partey has recently started picking form after a series of thigh injuries.
Further forward, no changes are likely. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has returned home after taking care of his ill mother, but has been ruled out for the game. Hence, it should be the same combination from the Southampton win with Emile Smith Rowe having overcome his knock.
