Arsenal and Manchester United are the two most in-form Premier League sides heading into their weekend meeting at the Emirates Stadium.
Both teams have 13 points from their past five league matches, either side of the World Cup, with United reigniting their chances of a possible title push.
Derby wins against Tottenham and Manchester City respectively last weekend has boosted confidence even further for Mikel Arteta and Erik ten Hag despite the potential of a late surge of form from defending champions City.
Below are the projected starting lineups for both teams based on the latest news heading into this key Premier League match.
Arsenal vs Manchester United lineups
Arteta has kept faith with a consistent group of players this season and his squad have coped superbly following the World Cup injury to Brazil star Gabriel Jesus.
Ten Hag appears to be edging closer to knowing his strongest XI at United with January signing Wout Weghorst competing to keep his place after starting the draw with Crystal Palace.
Below are the projected starting lineups for both teams ahead of their match at the Emirates Stadium on January 22.
Arsenal starting 11
(4-3-1-2): Ramsdale (GK) — White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko — Odegaard, Partey, Xhaka — Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli
- Injured: Jesus, Nelson
- Suspended: None
With Arsenal in such a hot streak of form, Arteta is ready to name an unchanged team for the fourth Premier League game in a row. New signing Leandro Trossard is likely to be among the substitutes.
Manchester United starting 11
(4-2-3-1): De Gea (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw — McTominay, Eriksen — Antony, Fernandes, Rashford — Weghorst
- Injured: Martial, Van de Beek, Dalot, Sancho, Tuanzebe
- Suspended: Casemiro
The majority of Ten Hag’s injury picture remains the same ahead of this match, with Anthony Martial still struggling and Diogo Dalot not yet fully fit. Midfield lynchpin Casemiro is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace, but there is a chance that Jadon Sancho could be back in the squad after resuming team training this week.
