Arsenal vs Man Utd

This will be the final test of whether or not Man United under OGS is a rejuvenated team, or just experiencing the new-manager bounce. Prediction: Manchester United 3, Arsenal 2.

Asked whether Solskjaer should stay beyond the current campaign, Scholes replied: "I think we look at it at the end of the season".

Level on points in the Premier League and with just three goals separating the two, an Arsenal vs Manchester United cup tie on a Friday night could barely be any more tantalising. On Thursday, Solskjaer announced the team will have a player boost ahead of Friday's FA Cup clash. He knows what Manchester United means and he wants the players to know that as well.

Rossi said Solskjaer had "been amazing" since his return to United, winning all seven games of which he has taken charge.

United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won seven out of seven across all competitions after becoming interim manager in December, but Arsenal manager Unai Emery will be full of confidence after out-coaching Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri and leading his squad to a dominant 2-0 victory over the Blues last Saturday. "We have [seven] wins in a row so we can not ask for more, but we have to be prudent as we are in the middle of the season with a lot of games to play and we have a really tough schedule in February".

Alexis Sanchez has struggled to make an impression at Manchester United (Martin Rickett/PA).

And United can get the win.

Pogba captained United nine times under Mourinho and in the absence of Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young was named skipper for the first game of the season against Leicester. "I think we are going to have tough moments and tough games, so let's see how the team reacts and how we fight against those circumstances".

All Solskjaer has to do is keep the players happy and keep them playing the way they have been, sustain that momentum.

Bellerin's presence takes a huge amount of attacking stress off Sead Kolasinac at left-back as the Spaniard has the requisite pace to bomb up and down the right-hand side at will.

For years, games between these two would often decide the destination of the Premier League title and other major trophies. "I think he'll love it if the crowd turn against him".

United have lost only five games in just under 11 years against Arsenal in all competitions.
