Both Arsenal and Manchester United have been giving injury updates ahead of the Premier League clash between the pair at Old Trafford on Monday evening.
Starting off with Arsenal, the news is not so bad, there are just four players unavailable, three through injury and one because of suspension.
Alex Lacazette is under rehabilitation on his injured left ankle and will be out until October.
Emile Smith Rowe is under assessment following his head injury which occurred Tuesday evening against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.
Dinos Mavropanos is actually back in full training and according to the Arsenal website is available for selection.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is suspended due to his red card against Aston Villa.
As for Manchester United, it is a different story altogether, they have some really key men unavailable.
According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the United website the following players are sidelined.
Paul Pogba is a doubt for the Arsenal game
Phil Jones out
Anthony Martial out
Marcus Rashford out
Luke Shaw out
Diogo Dalot out
Angel Gomes out
Eric Bailly out
Tim Fosu-Mensah out
That is the sort of injured list that Arsenal had a few months back and must have some sort of impact on Monday evening, especially, Pogba, Rashford and Martial all absent.
United still have a squad of good players and it would be a mistake to assume that Arsenal have the upper hand because of injuries but I would rather be in Arsenal’s position than United’s.
It should also be noted that Pogba is just a doubt, do not be surprised if he makes a miraculous recovery.
