What channel is Man United vs. Arsenal? Start time, TV schedule for Premier League game | Sporting News United Kingdom

In a pivotal clash, Manchester United aim to halt Arsenal’s march towards the Premier League title, knowing that even avoiding defeat could thwart the Gunners’ aspirations. However, recent performances suggest a daunting task for the Red Devils.

Erik ten Hag’s side stumbled to a frustrating 1-1 draw against relegation-threatened Burnley before enduring a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace last time out. These setbacks highlight United’s struggles in recent outings.

In stark contrast, Arsenal have been a force to reckon with this calendar year, amassing an impressive 42 points out of 46 and sealing convincing victories, including a commanding 3-0 win over an in-form Bournemouth side most recently.

With the title race hanging in the balance and Manchester City lurking closely, any misstep from Arsenal could prove costly. United understands the stakes and will be motivated to put up a formidable challenge against their arch-rivals.

Man United vs Arsenal lineups, team news

Manchester United’s starting lineup could see Andre Onana retaining his place in goal despite recent criticism. The back four remains unsettled due to ongoing injuries, with Jonny Evans and Casemiro likely to start despite fitness concerns.

Harry Maguire, Lisandro Martinez, Victor Lindelof, Raphael Varane, and Willy Kambwala remain sidelined. Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will feature in defense, with Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia unavailable.

In midfield, Kobbie Mainoo and Christian Eriksen are expected to continue, with Bruno Fernandes returning to bolster the team after a brief injury absence.

Marcus Rashford’s fitness issues mean Alejandro Garnacho and Antony will start on the wings, while Rasmus Hojlund leads the line for the Red Devils.
 

Man United predicted XI (4-2-3-1, right to left): Onana (GK) — Dalot, Casemiro, Evans, Wan-Bissaka — Mainoo, Eriksen — Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho — Hojlund.

Arsenal will stick with David Raya in goal. The backline could be yet again unchanged for the fourth consecutive game, featuring Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel, and Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Jurrien Timber is back in training but won’t rush into match action. Thomas Partey anchors the midfield, with Martin Odegaard and Declan Rice ahead of him.

Leandro Trossard could likely retain the left-wing spot, but Gabriel Martinelli provides a pacey option so he could start this game. Bukayo Saka continues on the right, while Kai Havertz leads the line in a false-nine role, potentially challenged by Gabriel Jesus.

Arsenal predicted XI (4-3-3 right to left): Raya (GK) — White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu— Odegaard, Partey, Rice — Saka, Havertz, Martinelli.
