Manchester United Rocked By Huge Injury Blow Ahead Of Arsenal Game

Of course, Mourinho has more options in the middle of the park than he did a few weeks ago, with Paul Pogba set to start and play a key role in the game - not to mention the possibility of Marouane Fellaini playing.

"I play a game at a time and that is the way to do it", Mourinho told reporters on Friday.

Possibly the match which provides one of the most unforgettable moments and scenes in Premier League history.

Wenger's record against Mourinho is a dismal one.

The Red Devils are also on a three-game winning streak in the Premier League as they beat Watford 4:2 at Vicarage Road in the mid-week.

The 24-year-old recently returned to the United side and his comeback has coincided with an upturn in form for Jose Mourinho's side. The Hornets responded with a couple of quick goals in the period between the 77th and 84th minute, but Jesse Lingard's excellent solo effort secured the win for the visitors with four minutes to go. The magpies have lost four of their last five, overturning a two-goal deficit to snatch a point against West Brom in midweek to seal their sole point from the last 15 available.

Victory over Arsenal - unbeaten at home in the Premier League since losing to Watford in January - would not only be another humiliation for Wenger but for Mourinho it would be United's first away win in eight attempts against top-six opposition.

Expect to see a United starting lineup without Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford on Saturday, with Ashley Young up front alone in a false nine position... Phil Jones is doubtful to play with a hamstring injury, so in case he is not ready to perform, the "Special One" could go with Lindelof, Smalling, and Rojo at the back again.

The bad blood runs deep between Mourinho and Wenger, with the latter yet to forgive the Portuguese for labelling him a "specialist in failure" in 2014 when he coached Chelsea.
