Fernandes, alongside Alejandro Garnacho and England’s own Luke Shaw, will debut their talents this preseason in the United starting XI, sending waves of expectation across their global fan base.

While key changes are afoot in the United camp, Ten Hag wisely retains a safety net. A galaxy of experienced stalwarts, including the likes of Casemiro, Christian Eriksen and Marcus Rashford, might be unleashed from the bench, depending on the game’s flow. One thing is certain: the Red Devils are not here for a friendly kickabout.

Across the field, the Gunners are in equally high spirits. The head coach, Mikel Arteta, fresh from a staggering 5-0 victory over the MLS All Stars, has named a side packed with dynamism and vigour.

Five stalwarts from that victorious campaign – Aaron Ramsdale, Gabriel, William Saliba, Bukayo Saka, and Eddie Nketiah – retain their spots, reiterating the old adage: “never change a winning team.”

Nonetheless, change is part of football, and the North London side’s summer acquisitions, Jurien Timber, Declan Rice and Kai Havertz, will be on the pitch tonight. The newcomers’ integration into the squad will be closely watched, adding another layer of intrigue to this transatlantic confrontation.

The game kicks off at 5:00 p.m. ET, with both squads locked and loaded. This is more than a preseason friendly. This is a chance to assert dominance, to establish momentum, to signal intent.

The battleground is set, the warriors are ready. United or Arsenal – which titan will emerge victorious? All eyes on the MetLife Stadium. The world awaits.
