Man Utd expected line-up vs Arsenal as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer considers changes

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces some big decisions over how to line-up his side for Sunday's clash with Arsenal after an impressive win over RB Leipzig in the midweek.

United have bounced back impressively from the 6-1 defeat to Tottenham before the international break and on Wednesday they gave a clear demonstration of their attacking power as they beat Leipzig 5-0 in the Champions League.

Solskjaer opted to play a diamond in midfield with two strikers and it helped under-fire midfielder Paul Pogba produce his best performance of the season.

Mason Greenwood got his second goal of the season, Marcus Rashford scored a hat-trick and Fred continued his strong start to the campaign by bossing the midfield.

The competition for places means Solskjaer has a number of options to pick from and ahead of the match he chose to hail Pogba's qualities in particular.

"Paul can do everything on the football pitch, more or less," he said.

"He can play long passes, he can get into the box, he can make combinations outside the box. He played really well.

"He did impact the game. We love to see when he’s driving forward and affecting the game. What has been the case with Paul after being injured for so long and then ill, it’s about getting fitness.

"It’s about getting his fitness back and his sharpness back. The fitter he is, the more he can do.”

United will be without the suspended Anthony Martial, who is serving the final match of a three-game ban.

Alex Telles is missing after testing positive for coronavirus while Jesse Lingard, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones remain injured.
