Arsenal, still the favorites as we look at the predicted lineup and key details for the Arsenal vs Manchester United FC match of EPL 2023.
Arsenal are the favourites to win the season this year, and are in incredible form despite missing Jesus due to his World Cup injury. They will be looking to win this game at home against Manchester United after losing the only game this season at Old Trafford in September 2022.
Manchester United, on the other hand, are in good form since the return from the World Cup with both Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandez scoring consistently. However, they will miss Casemiro in this away clash against Arsenal which will be a big loss for the team.
Arsenal are unbeaten at home this season, while Manchester United have won just 50% of their away games, so it seems like Arsenal should be the winning team. However Manchester United are in great form and not a team you can just write off since they can upset the table toppers this Sunday.
Manchester United’s record against Arsenal is better overall. Even in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in the Premier League, both teams have won twice each with 1 draw between them.

Predicting Starting 11 for both Teams
EPL 2023: Arsenal vs Manchester United Predicted Lineup for Arsenal

Goalkeeper: Aaron Ramsdale
Defence: Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes, William Saliba, Oleksandra Zinchenko
Midfield: Bukayo Saka, Thomas Partey, Martin Odegaard, Granit Xhaka, Gabriel Martinelli
Attack: Eddie Nketiah
EPL 2023: Arsenal vs Manchester United Predicted Lineup for Manchester United
With the team in great form manager, Erik ten Hag will want to stick to the same squad, however, suspensions and injuries will force him to play without Casemiro and possibly Martial. However, Manchester United has a decent squad to choose from and we will possibly see Garnacho / Sancho starting in place of Martial and Fred starting in place of Casemiro
Goalkeeper: David de Gea
Defence: Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw
Midfield: Antony, Fred, Bruno Fernandez, Christian Eriksen, Jadon Sancho
