Confirmed Arsenal team to take on Man United – Welbeck starts!

Arsenal have announced their side to take on Manchester United today, and Danny Welbeck is a surprise inclusion against his former side.

Granit Xhaka was ruled out of today’s game when Arsene Wenger held his pre-match press conference on Thursday, but returned to training yesterday and has managed to recover in time to play today.

Shkodran Mustafi has been in training this week but has been left out of the squad, with Holding and Monreal lining up alongside Koscielny.

I’m not quite sure of Wenger’s thinking with Danny Welbeck, as I would much prefer to have seen Theo Walcott or Alexis Sanchez playing centrally to add to their impressive tallies this term.

Will this team be strong enough to win today?

  1. Muffdiver wants change...not for arsenal...for.the vending machine, I'm thirsty as f###

    Good to see holding back
    Welbz stretches defences more than giroud

    Hopeful of a win
    Nothing more

    Come on Arsene beat mourinho once just once

    It’s still 0-0 at Anfield (89th minute) and they missed a pen.
    I haven’t anything to say about our lineup lol 😂👉 I’m just praying for the unlikely 3 points.

    Prefer Welbeck there than Walcott or Giroud. Otherwise we’d have two players doing allot of ball watching. I hope Danny switches around with Ozil if our wing-back starts getting isolated.

      Yes, but Welbeck hasn’t been good enough in recent weeks, am gutted for Lucas he could have gotten his chance

      I bet you feel like a twat now. Arsenal have been all over United today. Mourinho’s first defeat against Wenger in the league. So much for your faith in “the special one”. Mourinho hasn’t got a clue. United bottled it and tried to get a 0-0.

    Monreal should be wingback. Gibbs not good enough to start, and Monreal links up way better with Alexis.

      Exactly my thought, Gibbs doesn’t cut it for me, Bellerin can do well in that position imo…
      Strong line-up from ManU but we can win this!

    easy win. Never sure about Ramsey starting and not happy about the left flank being ruled by two left backs with Monreal and Gibbs, last time that didn’t generate much forward pressure. Guess Wenger is afraid of Man U.

    How sweet a win would be!!!!

    I think that the right choice playing Welbeck instead of giroud, cos Welbeck a bee always buzzing around and can unlock defences’ better
    Good to see holding back a player of the future

    When I said Iwobi is far better than Ramsey I always get thumbs down. Ever since Wenger dropped Iwobi to the bench how many time have Arsenal won a game? Tell me.

      neither are that good. Iwobi played for several months after his form took a massive dip. I don’t know why you’re hyping him up when he wouldn’t really make much of a difference.

    Okay first half. At least we looks capable of creating chances. Better decision making in final third is needed though. Ox is making poor choices today in good positions. Holding has been great so far, Xhaka decent too… As usual, Ozil keeps you wanting. Don’t get it.

    Arsene Wenger should learn from Mou. The moment we got the second goal Mou quickly made substitutions. Arsene can’t do that.
