The match will see Michael Carrick once again take charge in the dugout with newly-appointed United boss Ralf Rangnick yet to have his visa situation sorted.

This will be Carrick's third match as the Red Devils' caretaker boss, with the former midfielder managing to register encouraging results in the previous two.

The most recent outing saw United hold rivals, Chelsea, to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, with the vital point helping them climb to eighth on the log.

Thursday clash against Arsenal will see Carrick miss the services of up to four key players including Raphael Varane, Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, and Luke Shaw who is a major doubt.

David de Gea is sure to retain his place between the sticks, with Maguire and Victor Lindelof taking charge at the heart of defence.

There is an outside chance Carrick could stick with the 4-3-1-2 formation, with Nemanja Matic, Fred, and Scott McTominay commanding the midfield.

Bruno Fernandes would then act as the creative hub up the pitch, with Jadon Sancho forming part of the attack.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who was dropped to the bench against Chelsea could return to the starting lineup in place of Marcus Rashford to lead the goal hunt.

Possible Man United line up vs Arsenal:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea

Defenders: Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles

Midfielders: Matic, Fred, McTominay

Attack: Fernandes, Ronaldo, Sancho

Earlier, Sir Alex Ferguson named Bryan Robson as easily his best ever Man United captain.

Fergie had the privilege of coaching some of the finest players whom modern managers can only dream of having.

His 26-year tenure as United boss also saw the club get the most effective captains who showed leadership on and off the pitch.

While Nemanja Vidic, Gary Neville, Eric Cantona, and Roy Keane are some of the standout names, Fergie believes Bryan Robson was the best ever.
