Arsenal need to come away with a positive result when we take on Manchester United at Old Trafford this afternoon.

As expected, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has made a number of changes from the side that beat Dundalk in the Europa League. Bernd Leno returns in goal with Alex Runarsson dropping out while Gabriel is recalled to line-up alongside the fit again Rob Holding in defence. Shkodran Mustafi misses out.

Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney also come back into the Arsenal side while Thomas Partey starts in midfield after being rested on Thursday night. The Ghanaian international lines-up alongside Mo Elneny with Granit Xhaka surprisingly named on the bench alongside Dani Ceballos.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is obviously given a recall after being rested last time out and Alexandre Lacazette also comes back into the attack along with Willian. Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Nicolas Pepe make way after starting against Dundalk.

Here are the teams for the game:
