Meanwhile, Arsenal also named the same team that squeezed out a 1-0 victory over QPR last week, which means that England attacker Theo Walcott, despite his outstanding performance against Reading in the Capital One Cup comeback, starts on the bench again.

Amongst the starters are Jack Wilshere, who made an impressive return to first team football last, following a long layoff because of injuries and defender Bacary Sagna, who was also impressive against QPR.

Arsenal will certainly look to avoid another result like the last one at Old Trafford when they were hammered 8-2 last season.
