Man Utd build-up, Gabriel fights off masked ROBBER, Sterling ‘extremel…


Arsenal could make just one change to their team for tomorrow’s clash with Manchester United.

The Gunners moved into Champions League contention with their 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

But victory came at a cost as Bukayo Saka limped off injured at the Emirates.

Despite his setback not being serious, the England ace is not expected to be fit to confront Ralf Rangnick’s Red Devils.

And that could see Gabriel Martinelli earn a place in the starting XI after his goalscoring heroics against the Magpies.

The Brazilian is likely to slot straight in on Mikel Arteta’s right flank.

But a reshuffle could also see Martinelli moved to his preferred left side, forcing Emile Smith Rowe into the No10 slot and Martin Odegaard to the right.

Aside from injury doubt Saka, Granit Xhaka and Sead Kolasinac are Arsenal’s only other absentees.

And that method the likes of Nuno Tavares and Albert Sambi Lokonga are set to line up against United on Thursday.

However, Arteta may however decide to deploy a more experienced XI after their opponents’ battling draw at Chelsea.

Kieran Tierney and Mohamed Elneny could be called upon in place of Tavares and Lokonga.

Up top, Nicolas Pepe may however be preferred to Martinelli as Saka’s substitute.

And despite stating he is set to leave on a free move at the end of the season, Alexandre Lacazette may also get the nod up top.

That could see Aubameyang moved to the left, with Odegaard dropping out thoroughly.
