Arsenal vs Man Utd: TV channel, live stream, teams and kick-off time – Cristiano Ronaldo STARTS Premier League game

CRISTIANO RONALDO is starting for Man Utd only days after the loss of his baby boy.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner sat out United's defeat at Liverpool but was applauded by the entire stadium at Anfield in the seventh minute.

What should have been an exciting week for United following the appointment of Eric ten Hag, has been a traumatic one not just for Ronaldo.

Club captain Harry Maguire was sent a sick bomb threat, with a crazed fan telling him to leave the club in 72 hours.

Maguire starts on the bench for this one.

Meanwhile Arsenal are looking to build on a fantastic 4-2 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

    Young gunners to lead way

    With Arsenal's huge victory at Chelsea during the week a few of the club's academy stars really stood out.

    The performances of Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka particularly stood out for Arteta's side.

    Saka even banished his Euro 2020 penalty woes with a confidently taken spot kick right at the death.

    United need to address failings

    The Red Devils could lose four successive top-flight away games for the first time since a run of six away defeats from December 1980 to March 1981.

    They could equal an unenviable club record today also.

    They failed to score in the three successive away fixtures from March to April 2005.

    Home advantage paying dividends

    Arsenal have recorded 32 points at The Emirates this season.

    Only Liverpool (42) and Man City (38) have better home records.

    The Gunners have lost three of their seven home games in 2022.

    Rotating the squad necessary

    The Arsenal coach spoke about the importance of needing to freshen things:

    It is hard, but fortunately that’s been the case in many weeks when had to pick others that have to step in and they’ve done well for the team because they always prepare well. That’s what we expect, that doesn’t mean we are always going to repeat the same line up. We have options to change and we have options to change again and play in different ways.

    May the fourth be with you

    When it comes to recruitment in the summer, being in Europe’s elite tournament is key.

    To attract big name players to the club, they will want to see progress on the pitch.

    If you are not able to offer Champions League football, immediately you have issues in attracting the best players to the club.

    Fortune favours the brave

    Arsenal are unbeaten in their last three Premier League home games against Man Utd, winning two and drawing one.

    The Gunners could keep four clean sheets in four consecutive home league meetings for the first time.

    Mikel Arteta will feel that in their current form, Man Utd are here for the taking today.

    Welcome to Arsenal vs Man Utd

    The battle for fourth-place continues today at The Emirates with all clubs chasing the coveted Champions League spot currently faltering all too often.

    With results of late, it has seemed almost that the four teams competing for the position seem to not want to finish in fourth but today is chance for both to make a big statement with regards to their credentials for European football.

    Alexandre Lacazette may start after he featured as a late substitute in the win over Chelsea following his recovery from covid although with the performance of Eddie Nketiah at Stamford Bridge, the young striker still may take some dislodging.

    Takehiro Tomiyasu is in contention to make his first appearance since January after returning to training for The Gunners.

    Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba could miss the rest of the season with the calf injury sustained in the defeat at Liverpool on Tuesday.

    Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Scott McTominay are all available for Ralf Rangnick, with the latter being a timely return from injury given Paul Pogba’s calf issue.

    Mohamed Elneny performed well at Stamford Bridge and is expected to partner Granit Xhaka in the centre of Arsenal’s midfield again.
