One of the oldest English Premier League rivalries comes to life as Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal travel to Manchester, hoping to upset United.

Anthony Martial remains absent for United as he serves the final game of his three-match ban and Alex Telles will also be absent for a while after a positive coronavirus test.

Marcus Rashford, fresh from scoring a UEFA Champions League hat-trick, is expected to lead the attacking line alongside Mason Greenwood.

Despite being out of favor for the past few games, the experience of Paul Pogba will be required in the center of the pack alongside Bruno Fernandes.
