Arsenal centre-back David Luiz could be out for a few more weeks with a thigh injury he sustained in the defeat to Leicester last weekend. Manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that the Brazilian is one of four centre-backs who are currently on the sidelines.
Pablo Mari has had to delay his comeback from an ankle injury he picked up back in June. The Spaniard has not played this season and is now expected to be back in action after the international break next month.
Rob Holding is closing in on a return from a hamstring issue he sustained in the warm-up before the defeat to Manchester City, while Calum Chambers is back in training, but he lacks match fitness after missing the last ten months with an ACL injury.
Gabriel Martinelli is the only other player currently unavailable, with the Brazilian expected to be back before the end of the year following knee surgery over the summer.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be without new signing Alex Telles, who has tested positive for COVID-19. Jesse Lingard, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are also out of contention due to injury, while Anthony Martial is suspended.
The bookmakers have made United the slight favourites with 888 Sport pricing them at 21/20 for the win. A draw is 11/4 with Unibet while a victory for Arsenal is currently 13/5 at Betfred.
Predicted Score – 1-1
