Danny Welbeck will not have the chance to help Arsenal to another FA cup win over his former club Manchester United tonight, as the England international striker is ruled out of the cup clash due to injury. The Gunners also have to do without Hector Bellerin and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but can the Arsenal players who are available stop the new United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from making it eight wins from eight since replacing our old pal Jose ‘Maureen’ Mourinho.
Unai Emery must know that this cup competition is now a very important opportunity to add some much needed gloss to his season, as it often was for Arsene Wenger, because the likelihood of a top four finish is slipping further away. Because of these circumstances and the opposition, you would have to admit that a win tonight would do wonders for the Gunners, so what Arsenal team will Emery select?
Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Koscielny, Kolasinac
Torreira, Xhaka, Ramsey,
Aubameyang, Iwobi, Lacazette
Subs: Leno, Mustafi, Monreal, Lichtsteiner, Elneny, Guendouzi, Ozil
With No Gea in the United team or squad and Arsenal playing with home advantage I think we have to go for it tonight and we do have the players to create chances and score goals. COYG!
