Preview

Away from home FA Cup tie against a top 6 rival. Arsenal showed that they can be a dangerous team against Chelsea.

Will Arsenal pick the same team or will we pick the same team. I think that both teams will pick there FA Cup teams.

Both defences are fragile but under Ole we been creating more chances and playing more aggressive football.

I don't think either team wants a replay but I think we have Arsenal's number and a better squad all round and that could be the decisive factor.

Player to watch: Lakuku

Romeo

Dalot. Bailly. Jones. Shaw

Fred. Pierra. Mctomanny

Mata. Lukaku. Sanchez

Pridiction: Man Utd to sneak a 1-2 away win.

Sorry but that is a team that you would pick to play Northampto, not Arsenal away, unless you are looking for a mauling.

I think we will get pretty much what has turned out the last few games, Ole seems to have a preferred eleven already, an eleven that is flexible in attack and can (hopefully) defend, a lot of the selection will depend on fitness levels.
He seems to prefer Young at RB.
De Gea, Young , Jones , Lindelof, Shaw , Matic , Herrera , Lingard, Pogba , Martial , Rashford

Shaw may be a doubt the Physio room is reporting he has an 'illness'. Long term outs are still Rojo ( Early Feb return), Smalling ( early Feb return) Fellaini (Late Feb return)

Not sure where Mata fits in Ole's united tbh. He seems lost in open play - both defensively (pressing high) and offensively due to his lack of pace and power. He couldn't get close to anyone vs Brighton, and once he came on, any little control we had of the game was lost.
IMO he'd be best served as a Pogba backup, rather than on any of the wide forward areas.

It looks to me that Ole has his starting eleven and basically the way he wants them playing nailed down, there may be a tweak or two in the style of play but overall it looks like Ole want the team moving from defense to offense with little or no dithering about in midfield. When we do turn the ball over the front players are pressing to get the ball back and/or delay the opposition so that defenders can get back and setup.

We have seen that when Mata or Lukaku come on as substitutes this game plan starts to fall apart a little. I think that Mata is a great talent and really wants to be a United player, however he just doesn’t have the pace to work in Ole’s game plan. Used in the correct way I think that Lukaku could score 25+ goals a year, however he is asked to hold up a long out ball, wait for reinforcements and play inciteful passes to get others involved in the attack he just doesn’t have the skillset to accomplish those tasks. He is much more suited to playing the fox-in-the-box role, admittedly a big fox, but that’s not the way we are playing at present.

Reports have Darmian going to Juventus on loan for the remainder of the season, barring an emergency I just don’t see Valencia getting another start, that leaves; Shaw, Young and Dalot as defensive backs. As much for their ball handling as their defense Lindelöf & Jones appear to be the starters of choice; Bailly could fits into Jones’s role but a rush of blood at any time could see us playing with 10 men. Rojo and Smalling I don’t see getting game time as anything other than a late sub or part of a three-man back line.

Barring injuries or total fatigue I do not see the midfield (or the forwards) changing that much, maybe getting Sanchez a game or two to determine if he can be a better Lindgard, maybe get Fred some minutes but apart from that I do not foresee too many changes game to game.
deGea
Dalot Bailly Lindelöf Shaw

Herrera
Fred Pogba
Mata

Rashford Martial
Sanchez if fir could start instead of Mata.

I don't think. ARSENAL will pick there strongest team either. Depending on their team I think. Ole will strengthen his him more.

Mind you that team I picked has a lot of talent in there as well. Jose picked a strange team against Liverpool.

Ole knows his best 11 but there is a lot of. Talent in the squad.

Arsenal (possible 4-2-3-1) Cech; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Koscielny, Kolasinac; Torreira, Xhaka; Iwobi, Ramsey, Aubameyang; Lacazette.
Substitutes: Leno, Mustafi, Monreal, Lichtsteiner, Elneny, Guendouzi, Ozil.

Manchester United (4-3-3) Romero; Young, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; Herrera, Matic, Pogba; Lingard, Lukaku, Alexis.
Substitutes: Grant, Dalot, Jones, Fred, Mata, Martial, Rashford.

No De Gea is a gamble, and the defence sounds hilarious but the rest is a strong side. They just need to turn up.

Sokratis twists his ankle, tries to carry on and gets booed by his own fans. Absolute plastics.

Lindgard goal - wonderful fastbreak cuts Arsenal apart. Good work from Shaw in the clearance and getting the ball to Lukaku.

Lukaku has been outstanding so far! 2 great assists! Cool finishes from Alexis and Jesse too. We always seem to score great counter-attacking goals at Arsenal!!

That goal proved without a shadow of a doubt that Woodward was right not to buy a centre back.

It's like Ramsey had the mange and no one wanted to get near him.
