Manchester United take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. United failed to win a 10th consecutive game in all competitions against Crystal Palace in midweek and Erik ten Hag is keen to remind supporters the Reds defeated Mikel Arteta’s side without Casemiro in September. It’s possible United could be without Anthony Martial and Diogo Dalot again at the Emirates. Regarding the early team news, it’s possible United could be without Anthony Martial and Diogo Dalot again at the Emirates. It is not remotely ideal and should be a one-off, but Fred’s energy is needed and United also need some grit. McTominay has had an identity crisis in recent months but should be used in a defensive capacity. Antony is too fitful and unreliable for this afternoon. Tyrone Marshall suggested to go for the dual protection of Fred and McTominay, offer United a bit more dynamism and energy in the absence of the brilliant Casemiro. Steven Railston suggested to start 18-year-old Garnacho on the right wing instead but there is a feeling he could be something special.
