Share post:

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from their Champions League defeat when they face Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday.

Here is the predicted starting Eleven

Goalkeeper – Peter Cech

Wenger received a barrage of criticism for starting David Ospina against Olympiakos F.C. Peter Cech will surely return to the start eleven.

Right Back – Hector Bellerin

Bellerin is expected to get the nod ahead of Mathieu Debuchy. Arsenal needs him to stop pacey United attack and in counter attacks. With Ramsey likely to move out to the right-wing, Spanish defender will provide much-needed speed when going forward.

Left Back – Nacho Monreal

Kieran Gibbs did okay against Olympiakos, but he is likely to be replaced with Monreal. Gunners fans and Players will surely feel better if they see Monreal instead of an inconsistent Kieran Gibbs.

Centre Back – Gabriel Paulista

With Koscielny out injured, Arsene Wenger will have no option but to call-up Gabriel to pair with Per Mertesacker in the heart of Gunners defence.

Centre Back – Per Mertesacker

Former German international is likely to get a start ahead of unimpressive Callum Chambers. It will be interesting to see how he copes with United’s pace.

Central Midfield – Francis Coquelin

Coquelin returned from injury against Olympiakos. He will add more defensive strength to the team.

Central Midfield – Santi Cazorla

The Spanish magician will be starting alongside Coquelin. He will be looking to open his account in the League against United.

Left Wing – Alexis Sanchez

He is getting better and better with each game. His header against the Greek side was his 4th goal in 2 games. He has now scored 8 times this season in all competition. The hardworking Chilean international will be crucial to Arsenal’s attack.

Right Wing – Aaron Ramsey

Ramsey is likely to replace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right-wing.

Central Attacking Midfielder – Mesut Ozil

The Germen midfield maestro will be playing the role behind the striker, a position he love to cherish. His vision and passing ability will be crucial for the Gunners against their fierce rivals.

Striker – Theo Walcott

Walcott is likely to start against the Red Devils. His speed will be crucial against United. His formidable partnership with Sanchez will give headaches to Red Devils defence.
