Arsenal v Manchester United

"When the FA Cup comes around, a lot of people want to talk about the goal".

Defensively, Luke Shaw should return after illness and Ashley Young should continue on the right.

UK residents can watch Arsenal's clash with Manchester United live on BBC 1, channel 101 for both Sky and Virgin Media users.

Manchester United are "making progress" on contract extensions for David de Gea and Anthony Martial, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, midfielder Marouane Fellaini and defenders Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo all remain sidelined with injury.

Rossi, 31, has undergone a number of knee operations, and the former Villarreal and Fiorentina player said he was pleased that United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Sir Alex Ferguson had been impressed with his contribution in training.

"I'm here, I'm ready for any challenge and I'm training with the best players in the world, with the best team in the world".

Solskjaer has insisted he will get the chance to impress, but as part of his intention to rotate his front line with United still involved in three competitions.

"I'm not surprised if they do, put it that way", Solskjaer told a news conference on Thursday.

Solskjaer has named a consistent starting XI when taking charge, although there have been suggestions he could deploy Alexis Sanchez here, perhaps hoping that playing against his old club will help the Chilean find some form.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have not been playing very well of late.

Arsenal will be without former Man United stars Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (foot), while Hector Bellerin's knee injury has effectively ended his season. Here's everything you need to know about a game which, for both Arsenal and United, could have a major bearing on the season. But, that is unlikely to be the case going up against a top-six opposition, with the preferred midfield trio of Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba all set to feature from the kick off.

Arsenal: The Gunners already saw United this season in early December, and that game finished in a 2-2 draw.

"You don't really have to prioritise [anything] when I have a big squad anyway so, of course, there will be one or two changes [at the Emirates Stadium], but it's not like you prioritise one ahead of the other".
