Man Utd Team News: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Arsenal

Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at Emirates Stadium on Sunday

After a sensational late triumph over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, Manchester United will look to continue their wonderful momentum under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with another victory against Arsenal on Sunday.

With the race for Champions League qualification becoming tighter by the week, the result at the Emirates could have a big bearing on both teams’ top-four ambitions.

United could welcome back a number of their 10 missing players as their injury crisis eases off.

Anthony Martial returns to duty after missing five games with a groin injury and Eric Bailly is available despite limping off before half-time against PSG on Wednesday.

Solskjaer says he hopes to call upon at least one of Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera, meaning that he could pick his first-choice midfield thanks to the return from suspension of Paul Pogba.

However, Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez all remain out of action.

Lucas Torreira has seen his three-match ban for his sending-off in the north London derby upheld, while United have Pogba back after his European ban. Luke Shaw will miss the forthcoming fixtures with Wolves and Watford if he receives his 10th domestic booking of the season on Sunday.

With injuries clearing up, Solskjaer could call upon his first-choice midfield and the majority of his favoured forward line.

Despite the excellent performances turned in by Scott McTominay, Fred and Andreas Pereira in Paris, all three could miss out if Matic and Herrera both join Pogba in becoming available in time for Sunday.

Up front, Martial should start after returning to full fitness.

Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin are all out for the rest of the season through injury, while Lucas Torreira misses out due to suspension.

Unai Emery can call upon Sokratis Papastathopoulos despite the Greek defender’s red card in the Europa League against Rennes on Thursday, with his ban due to be served in the second leg next week.

Kick-off is 4:30pm GMT (11:30am ET) on Sunday, and will be shown live in the United Kingdom on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event. It will be shown on NBCSN in the United States, and on various channels around the world.
