Man Utd & Arsenal combined XI with Gunners DOMINATING ahead of crunch game

[ad_1]

ARSENAL host Manchester United on Saturday in a crunch game for a top four finish.

Following a disastrous first three games, after which they sat bottom of the league, Mikel Arteta‘s men managed to recover and are in a shootout with the Red Devils and rivals Tottenham to finish in the Champions League places.

The Gunners returned to winning ways against Chelsea – ending a three-game losing streak.

Eddie Nketiah was the hero with a brace in a 4-2 win at Stamford Bridge.

Arteta and Co sit fifth in the Premier League table, only separated from the Champions League spots by goal difference.

And a statement victory over Ralf Rangnick’s side could take them six points clear, with United playing a game more and having just four more remaining.

In a current combined XI compiled by SunSport, just FOUR Man United players feature, despite their squad brimming with expensive talent.

After a few months under Rangnick it may look different, but for now underperforming stars like Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw miss out.

David de Gea does edge it between the sticks for us, however, despite Aaron Ramsdale gaining plaudits this term.

The Spaniard has been in fine form, often keeping scorelines even remotely respectable as United found themselves battered in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s final days.

Takehiro Tomiyasu and Kieran Tierney are easy picks as full-backs, having performed excellently when called upon this season.

While Gabriel Magalhaes partners Raphael Varane in our defence – with the former Real Madrid star not tainted enough by recent bad United games to miss out.

Thomas Partey is a lock for a place in central midfield, while SunSport, perhaps unfairly, just about clings on to belief in Paul Pogba’s talents ahead of the up and coming Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Homegrown heroes Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe have been revelations for the Gunners, and we’re selecting them along with Martin Odegaard – who has been pulling the strings for the club.

Cristiano Ronaldo leads the line, ahead of Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, and Marcus Rashford

Jadon Sancho is also unlucky to miss out given his recent red-hot form.
