Manchester United face Arsenal in a cracking encounter at Old Trafford, with Jose Mourinho's second placed side needing just a point to secure the top four finish. Arsenal sixth in the table in the Premier League will be seeking to win 3 points. So who are the players you would draft in for your Fantasy XI? We guide you with the same.
We go ahead with a 4-2-3-1 formation
Keeping the team balance and value in mind, we feel the best bet would be a 4-2-3-1 formation, with the players settling in well in this shape. Players could create a lot using the width from the flanks with plenty of attacking display expected
David de Gea the custodian and the 4-man defense
David de Gea is definitely the ideal choice as the goalkeeper. He was excellent in the previous tie at the Emirates when these two sides met. Hector Bellerin has given a good account of himself and takes that right-back berth. Chris Smalling and Laurent Koscielny make up the central defense with experience in their bag. Versatile Ashley Young comes in as the left-back.
The two-man midfield have work up their sleeves
Matic comes in straight away as the defensive midfielder. The United player has been one of Jose Mourinho's trusted assets in the team and has been rock solid. His presence of mind could give a cushion. Along side him there were many names to go with but our choice is Aaron Ramsey. The in-form Gunner's clever passes and positioning will be key.
Three-man attacking quartet with Lingard as vice-captain
Jesse Lingard scored a double when the sides met last time and has been one of United's most stand out players. He is the vice-captain. The right-winger will give the side productivity and his ability to cut in is crucial. Mesut Ozil is our choice as the number 10. His vision and assists are classy. Alexis Sanchez has found form and is the left-winger.
Lukaku the lone striker and captain
The big Belgian Lukaku pips Alexandre Lacazette as the lone striker upfront. His 16 goals in the League and ability to hold up play, besides making assists, make him the best choice to lead the line. Lukaku is also our choice as the captain.
