It’s a match-up of traditional powers and it’s just time for lunch on the East Coast, as Manchester United visits the Emirates to take on Arsenal in a good measuring stick for both clubs (Watch live on NBC at 1230pm ET and online via Live Extra).
Arsenal is in sixth place, one point ahead of Manchester United.
It’s a 3-5-2 for United, with a dicey Chris Smalling, Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair. Michael Carrick will give cover.
The Red Devils have dominated the series over the past 11 meetings, winning eight, but now Danny Welbeck has switched sides and has played pretty well for Arsenal.
