Predicted Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1) vs Manchester United, Aubameyang and Pepe start

Predicted Arsenal XI to face Man United

Arsenal make the trip to Old Trafford for Monday's Premier League clash against Manchester United. The Gunners are winless in the past 12 league meetings at Old Trafford and they have an opportunity to break the unwanted streak against a United side, who are struggling with injuries to key players.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Gunners boss Unai Emery has gone with an unchanged backline in the past three league matches and changes are highly unlikely. Bernd Leno should feature in goal ahead of Emiliano Martinez with Ainsley Maitland-Niles, David Luiz, Sokratis and Sead Kolasinac making up the defence.

Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney made their first appearances of the season after their injury absence in midweek but they may make the bench at best. Elsewhere, Hector Bellerin and Dinos Mavropanos are definitely out after featuring for 90 minutes with the development squad on Saturday.

In the midfield, Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi have been the common picks under Unai Emery and the duo are expected to start. Xhaka was recently been handed with the permanent captaincy and Emery has since given his support to the Swiss amid the recent fan criticism over his performances.

Alongside the duo, Dani Ceballos probably gets the nod ahead of Mesut Ozil and Joe Willock in the attacking midfield role as he is capable of striking the balance between attack and defence.

Reiss Nelson is likely to feature on the left wing after bagging his maiden goal for the club in the midweek League Cup tie.Elsewhere, Nicolas Pepe will definitely feature on right side of the attack with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leading the line.

Predicted Lineup: Bernd Leno, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, David Luiz, Sokratis, Sead Kolasinac, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi, Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe, Reiss Nelson, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
