Team and Selection News

Arsenal continue to struggle rather unfortunately with injuries. Aaron Ramsey will definitely miss this match, as will England midfielder Jack Wilshere, Kim Kallstrom is still out, while Theo Walcott won’t feature again this season. Abou Diaby is a long-term absentee, although this fixture should see Thomas Vermaelen and Mikel Arteta available for selection again. Manchester United will probably select fit again Rooney and van Persie to lead their forward line, but Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Nani are all likely to miss this fixture with knocks.
