Preview

After trashing them in the FA Cup and this winnining record of 9 straight wins will continue and we'll make it 10.

I think the Smalling Linderlof partnership is paying dividends. I wonder if Martial will be fit or fit for the bench.

Pogba comes back so the team that beat PSG is stronger. We got our Man Utd back and Ole is proving he is a Tactical genius.

Lukaku is bang on form give him a chance and he'll score. If the FA Cup game is anything to go by then there is only one winner.

Arsenal will try and win but they travel to the Europa League. The team basically picks its self now.

I think with Pogba back we will have more control of the ball. Shaw has been outstanding at left back.

Ole has taken this team and players on another level. The team is on another level now.

So now we have 2 cup competitions and to try and finish as high as possible in the league. I think. We'll extent our lead over Arsenal on Sunday.

Player to watch. Paul Pogba. After missing the UCL classic he will be raring to go.

DDG
Young. Smalling. Lindelof. Shaw
Pierra. Mctom. Fred
Pogba
Lukaku. Rashford

Subs: Romero, Chong, Martial, Lingaard, Bailey, some kids.

Pridiction: Away win. 0-3. Man Utd to continue their surge up the table.

I don’t really know who, if anyone, will be available for the Arsenal game. What we do know is that whoever gets to play will give their absolute maximum effort and they will be given a game plan that will give them the best chance of winning.

DeGea
Young Smalling Lindelöf Shaw
McTominay
Dalot Pereira
Pogba
Lukaku Rashford

I think we will start with a diamond with very few changes from Wednesday.

Heres what the physion room is saying
E Bailly Knock No Return Date Major Doubt

A Sanchez MCL Knee Ligament Injury April 21, 2019 "It looks like he might be out for a bit. It was a bad knee injury - it could be four or six weeks [on the sidelines]. Hopefully he'll recover quickly." No

A Herrera Hamstring Injury No Return Date No

J Lingard Hamstring Injury No Return Date No

J Mata Hamstring Injury No Return Date No

N Matic Muscle Injury March 10, 2019 "He will probably be out for a couple of weeks, but we will manage without him." No

P Jones Illness March 10, 2019 Slight Doubt

A Martial Groin Strain March 10, 2019 "Maybe Anthony, but it might just be a few more days before he's ready." Slight Doubt

M Darmian Knock March 10, 2019 Major Doubt

A Valencia Calf Muscle Strain March 16, 2019 "He did his calf again, so he's still a few weeks off. He's started running." No

So yes we are down to the squad that played against PSG, Aresenal will be the ones who are worrying, they are not on good form in the league, and one days less rest too.

The players I see are maybe's for the match, with two out of three playing, are Pereira, Fred and Dalot depending on how we want to set up.
Fred gives more solidity to the midfield, whilst Pereira and Dalot can provide more attacking options.

So I think who we play out of those three depends on how Ole evaluates the threat from Arsenal.
I would expect all three to likely appear at some stage of the game.

It depends on which Arsenal turn up, but I think we have a very good chance here despite the injuries.

The injuries are actually giving some players the chance to step up, and everyone seems to be grasping that opportunity.

Given the form of the two teams and the momentum we carrying I can only see one winner.

We ripped them to shreds in the FA Cup, did the same to Chelsea.

The last team anyone will want to face is us. To go to Paris and do what we did is no mean feet.

From Ole's press conference;
Manchester Evening News wrote: Anthony Martial, who hasn't played since the first leg against PSG at Old Trafford over three weeks ago after suffering a groin strain, is available for the trip to the Emirates whereas Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera are both in contention to return.

Serbian midfielder Matic was ruled out of action in the build-up to the Premier League clash with Liverpool on February 24 whereas Herrera was substituted in first half of the 0-0 draw with a hamstring injury.

Solskjaer said on the trio: "Anthony will be available and hopefully we’ll have Nemanja and/or Ander ready as well."

It will be one hell of lift for the bench but unfortunately it will mean fewer teenagers on the bench,.

Mixed news on the injury front.

The good news is that Martial, Herera and Matic are available.

The bad news is that Bailley is available.... :cry:

Win here and beat wolves then it will be a perfect month yet again. Just shows how this club has been transformed.

I think that negative vibe that Jose had in the beginning of the season had evaporated. I think this team is confident and will beat the gunners again.

Gannar guns down gunners.

Talk about a curve ball. The wind was a major factor in there goal. We need to step it up

Hitting the bar twice and we need to step it up. Poor goal to Cocede we created the better chances.

Need to be more clinical.

Well I mean we only have ourselves to blame. We created a lot of chances and didn't take it.

The ref knocked the stuffing out of us coz it looked like only one team were going to score before they were gifted a penalty.

Time for VAR to come into the prem. As for Rom his finishing against the top 6 has been appalling.

Well still a good week given that we still in the UCL and the FA Cup. I think first goals in this big games are important and we really look mentally drained from that eyphoria.

We not going to win the prem so Arsenal will definetly drop points they were a bit lucky today.

Well let's see how the team reacts to this defeat. FA Cup next.

But saying that I'd rather lose in that manner playing on the front foot then defending for dear life and getting whipped.

The team needs to bounce back and that's all that matters.

I suppose we could say that we can't out-arsenal Arsenal.
This used to be typically how Arsenal lost. They will play and press well and ended up losing and their fans will be soothed by the fact they were pushing for the win.

This team appears not to be used to pressure to be honest. I hope they continue to push for UCL places but every time they have had pressure on them they stumble. PSG first leg and this Arsenal game and it's by identical scorelines.
This is purely my examination of the team and a pattern I have observed. Mind it was more or less the same during Mourinho's time so it's more a critique of the individuals than the manager. Any thoughts?
