ARS vs MUN Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The race for the top four heats up and Manchester United now find themselves in a must-win situation as they host their long-standing rivals Arsenal in a crunch Premier League match at Old Trafford, in Manchester, tomorrow, on Wednesday night (IST).
The era of Sir Alex Ferguson is long gone and went with it their grip at the Premier League. Not since their celebrated manager retired back in 2013 that the Red Devils won the league title, or even come close to winning it.
These are totally different times as highlighted by Jose Mourinho in various press conferences that the huge money generated by Premier League is the reason why the other forces have woken up in the league. The former Inter Milan and Chelsea manager pointed towards the past transfer dealings where United could knock at any club’s door and used to buy their best talent.
The 13-time Premier League champions are now finding it hard to find the right talent and purchase it. They wanted to sign both Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld from Spurs, but the deals couldn’t materialize despite United willing to pay some insane money.
But the current apathy of Manchester United is not only down to the poor transfer window in the summer, but the emergence of factions at Old Trafford, with the impasse between Paul Pogba and Mourinho, dividing the group in every conceivable manner.
As things stand, United are now a huge 8 points adrift of top-4. While the gap could be trimmed down in the cominh weeks as the season is long but Mourinho’s comments, where he was quoted as saying that ‘it would be a miracle to achieve the Champions League qualification through the league standing’, are negative enough to derail those ambitions.
Arsenal have taken on the transition period as a fish pierces through the currents in the water of some unchartered water bodies. So natural, so smooth, it looks as if this is the team’s true potential and only Arsene Wenger was hindering the growth of this club. Not that his tactics were wrong but perhaps the time was a factor, the longevity of it bringing a sense of comfort and complacency, engulfing the light itself.
The season started with two losses against Manchester City in the season-opening match and Chelsea in the second. The battle at the Stamford Bridge could have been all different had the Gunners not missed some sitters.
Now the start is a distant result as Arsenal haven’t lost since coming away empty-handed from SW6, making it 19 games unbeaten run in all competitions.
Gunners are absolutely on fire at the moment, scoring goals for fun and now boats a striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is the first to score 10 league goals this season.
The Gunners sit at fourth in the table and could end this round at 3rd if Chelsea fail to beat Wolves in their match.

ARS vs MUN Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Manchester United vs Arsenal Team News:
Injured – Alexis Sanchez’s career at Old Trafford couldn’t reach the heights he was hoping for and the injuries aren’t helping either. In the latest setback, the Chilean star will be spending few weeks on the operation table.
Victor Lindelof has been ruled out as well with a hamstring injury.
Suspended – Ashley Young will be serving a one-game suspension in this match and won’t be available for selection.
Questionable – Jose Mourinho will be fretting over the fitness of his centre-backs once again. He was forced to play both Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay at the back after being left with only Phil Jones as the only fit centre-half. Jones, however, is a doubt for this match.
Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian all missed the trip to St Mary’s and remain questionable ahead of this match.

Key Players – Lukaku, Martial, Pogba
Injured – For Arsenal, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Danny Welbeck and Nacho Monreal all have been ruled out for the trip to Manchester with respective injuries.
Suspended – This will be a big loss for Arsenal as Granit Xhaka will be serving a one-game ban for accumulating five yellow cards. The Swiss international has been phenomenal for the Gunners.

Shkodran Mustafi suffered a knock in the last match and will be assessed ahead of the match.
While playmaker Mesut Ozil missed the North London derby with a back spasm. His situation remains questionable.

ARS vs MUN Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
United could be without as many as 8 defenders in this match. Diago Dalot is expected to start and considering how Arsenal are playing, the 19-year-old could find himself in the firing line.
The midfield is which could help United if they turn up at first place. Pogba and Martial hold the key, while Matic is somebody who reads the game well.
Bellerin and Holding were brilliant against Arsenal.
Fred and Lingard have come into the midfield, joining Mkhitaryan and Ramsey.
Lukaku and Aubameyang are captain and vice-captain respectively.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Manchester United are struggling even at home this season. Arsenal are in full confidence and look well-prepared to end their away blues against United, having not won at Old Trafford in the Premier League since 2006.
However, this could be the game which could spark Red Devils into playing at their full potential.
The home team to win.
Prediction 2-0 (at least)
