Man United v Arsenal confirmed line-up – Mhki out for revenge?

Although Wenger has given many of Arsenal’s top players the weekend off to have a rest ahead of our Europa League semifinal showdown against Atletico Madrid on Thursday, I still think he can field a reasonably strong side this afternoon.

this is the line-up I predicted earlier….

Cech,
Bellerin, Chambers, Holding, Kolasinac,
Willock, Maitland-Niles, Iwobi,
Mkhitaryan, Welbeck,
Aubameyang.

And here is the confirmed line-up picked by Wenger…

    Be good to see Mavropanos…. oh please Arsenal!!! COYG!!! ?

    1. Neil says:

      Sadly I think will be a normal recent years ending with both Fergie and Mourinho there. So another loss… but Man Utd did same at Emirates when they were in semi finals and last year.. makes sense to ensure players are fit for 2nd leg in Madrid.

  2. Sean says:

    Yes Mavropanos is playing, been looking forward to seeing this kid play! Niles aswel has a good energy about him, solid young player.

  3. Muff diver says:

    Mavropanos making his first team debut against man united at old Trafford
    Iwobi aswell lol

    I’m about to use 3d glasses on a 2d tv
    An use a snorkel to assist my breathing

    Not nervous 🙁

    Good to see Mavropanos is playing but admin got the lineup wrong.

    1. Admin says:

      No one could have predicted that team!

      1. #MAGA says:

        So very sorry @admin, I misread this post and thought you had typed it in wrong but it was your prediction. Sorry for MY error.

  5. RSH says:

    im fine with the lineup. I’d just change Nketiah and Iwobi around. Iwobi has gotten his chance, so let someone else get theirs. Hopefully Nketiah get’s some solid game time before the season ends. And heard good things about Mavropanos and hope he does well today.

  6. Tatgooner says:

    Dont expect to win.
    If we play too well we might just be able to nick a draw.
    But please no thumpings

  7. Adega Olatunji says:

    Hope this is not another 8-2

  8. Ronny says:

    Wtf just checked in to see the team and oh shoot…!

  9. Ronny says:

    Ah I see wengers thinking we can’t win a game away so if he makes lots of changes when we lose and possibly get humiliated the confidence of the players we need for Thursday won’t be affected.

    No honestly don’t really get this line up, they put a lot in to the el game but still!!

  10. #MAGA says:

    I think we will win!
    If I’m correct, applause please.
    If I’m wrong, please shoot me.

      @ #MAGA
      Well I count myself as luckiest gunners because I am sitting right behind your skull with my pistol inside my jacket.
      Just pray for mother luck to smile on you and your prediction today. Otherwise, I have a letter for you to deliver to Nelson Mandela about sit-tight African Leaders.

  11. Ronny says:

    I predict defend defend defend today with xhaka and MN in mf.
    Xhaka long balls over the top for aubameyang.
    Counter attacking obviously but do we have the players to break fast and to hold out at the other end? I hope yes but fear no.

  12. Rkw says:

    Just happy wenger is leaving …. There is nothing left to preserve … Just a fresh start … With bellerin Iwobi xhaka chambers mustafi welbeck as a minimum out … Some of these youngsters may turn out ok if they are taught the basics by a serious coach … But it will take a good two years to recover a seriously competitive team

  13. Guns blazing says:

    I have lost count on how many times an arsenal player has gotten fouled this season, we not getting anything from the ref and the other side has scored just after the foul. Pisses me off majorly!

    1. Me says:

      You sound like Wenger himself.
      Finding excuses to detract from the real issue of Arsenal being terrible…

      1. Guns blazing says:

        First of all, i’m in no way a wengerite, but you can’t say i’m lying when i say we have been conceding goals after fouls all season. Yes Arsenal have been terrible this season, and this match doesn’t look any better. Pass pass pass with no penetration, lose the ball, back to square one. I am sick and tired, can’t wait for next season!

  14. Me says:

    Arsenal are simply the worst managed big team in Europe.
    The sooner this god awful season is over and the “manager” is gone the better.
    No coaching.
    No tactics.
    No effort.
    Just people turning up and getting paid for nothing…

  15. Avenger says:

    almost 20 minutes first half 1-0 and not a shoot from Arsenal to the
    M. United goalkeeper and the M. United fans SINGING OHH Wenger we want you to stay !!!!

  16. sanmi.marvellous says:

    ALAVES 0-1 ATL. MADRID
    22nd clean sheet of the season for the team.

    Do we have up to 10 ??
    Just asking.

    1. E Anderson says:

      ATM will not be keeping a clean sheet on Thursday, I am sure of it.

  17. Footballistrivial says:

    Xhaka is really funny to watch. What was that slide tackle he tried on Pogba before the goal went in????

    1. E Anderson says:

      That was not a slide tackle but a slide block anticipating a Paul Pogba shot… but as you know Pogba faked the shot….

      1. A shot from THAT far off? Pfft! Xhaka should follow Wenger out.

  18. RSH says:

    scoreline would be the same with our first XI. Pretty pedestrian game, some chances created. Fully expect united to finish us off 2nd half though. Miki looking pretty good and hope he’s ready for Thursday.

    1. E Anderson says:

      Oh! worry not…he’ll be there!

  19. #MAGA says:

    Man U are there for the taking and we are not taking our chances. Nothing new there then! The young ones playing well, Kalasinac won’t cross, Chambers playing well, Bellerin not in right position for the goal, again, and Xhaka, get the fukc out!

    1. Sue says:

      Come on Arsenal… would love to see just one goal scored!!!

  20. mickmematethemasterfarter says:

    xhaka captain of the arsenal football club shameful,ospina in goal lol..

    1. Lexynal says:

      So in your own opinion, this is Arsnal’s first team? Or what pointless point are you out to make. Why dont you get busy with something else if you are jobless.

  21. Elliot says:

    Im not getting worked up about this. Wenger is leaving, season is finish and for once in a long time im looking forward to next season. I actually think the youngsters are playing ok. Xhaka though…. LOL.

    1. Elliot says:

      Xhaka redeemed

      1. John0711 says:

        How is that redeemed he’s been fing up all season and is an awful midfielder

        1. Elliot says:

          Relax. Fing up all season isnt exactly correct either. Hes had some good games. Obviously hes not redeemed for the season but he done well for our goal.

          1. Elliot says:

            PS… I dont rate xhaka at all but ill give credit where its due.

  22. Footballistrivial says:

    Yay what a goal. Damn. In your face sanchez. Kill the Reds for Wenger. Goooooo

  23. jon fox says:

    Souness and Henry on TV rightfully slaughtering that clown , Xhaka. Most of us have been saying for all his two seasons with us he is not the quality we need. But WENGER “DID NOT SEE IT.” I LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEW MAN TURFING HIM OUT THE DOOR ASAP! Him apart , we are playing entertaining football and should be level, had Xhaka been serious about his duties instead of ridiculously sliding on his arse!

    1. Footballistrivial says:

      I laughed my arse off when xhaka slid like that. He was so far away from Pogba, wtf was he thinking sliding in like that. You only see little kids do that kind of sliding; those kids who were introduced to slide tackle for the first time. Lol.

    2. Rkw says:

      To be followed by bellerin who is also utterly useless … should be able to russle up 50m for the pair of em to increase the transfer pot

  24. Lexynal says:

    Point made..Mikhi scores…it couldnt be better. Let’s finish the job.

  25. Gily says:

    We utterly missed Mkhitaryan for the UEL match. ManU should better not break his leg for our Thursday match.

    1. sanmi.marvellous says:

      Micki for Thursday EUL Semi final ?
      Have I missed some breaking news ???

  26. Ackshay says:

    Mkhi is out for blood. Not even passing to BFF aubameyang. The way mourinho treated him, it’s normal.

  27. Ackshay says:

    Mavropanos looks good. Big, tall,strong and has good recovery pace. Haven’t got a defender like him in a while, maybe a new sol campbell

    1. Me says:

      A rare positive there.
      I would be happy to see the whole squad apart from Aubameyang, Lacazette, Ainsley Miles and Ozil leave.
      They are just there for the silly wages that fool Wenger decided to pay them…

      1. Admin says:

        Can you stop with the Wenger hatred for a while. He’s leaving for Christ’s sake, give it a rest!

    2. jon fox says:

      Steady on Ackshay, but he has distinct promise. Looks a player for sure. But Campbell was very special and he should not be burdened with that expectation. Not yet awhile anyway.

      1. Ackshay says:

        Using Campbell style of play as an example not his ability which would be unfair to compare right now.

  28. Rkw says:

    Let the clear out begin … just too many badly coached and below average players

  29. Footballistrivial says:

    Ospina should’ve saved that, and then he’d be world class.

  30. mickmematethemasterfarter says:

    thank god next season there b no more ospina iwobi hes transgender ffs

  31. Arsene is Out says:

    All I can say is Arsene is leaving, and that makes me extremely happy. I dont know what’s next for Arsenal, it might be better or it might be worse but all I know is that we were going nowhere and now at least we have a chance of going somewhere again.

    1. Me says:

      How can it be worse than this????

  32. Me says:

    Wenger’s FANTASTIC record of zero away points in 2018 continues.
    Roll on the end of the season.
    At least we don’t have to listen to his f**king excuses anymore.
    And he can take his sh*t signings with him…

  33. Avenger says:

    I am listening the M,United fans singing all along
    Ohhhh Arsene Wenger we want you to stay ohhhhhh Arsene Wenger we want you to stay…………….. thats his legacy….
