After dominating Liverpool down the left flank in last Sunday’s FA Cup win, they will once again be able to do that against Arsenal this weekend.

Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw have been two of the best attacking options for United all season. They have pace in abundance and there also seems to be an understanding between the two players and it was on full display against Jurgen Klopp’s side, and will hopefully be on display again at the Emirates Stadium

United will look to focus on the right-back area, which has been a point of weakness for Arsenal this season as they are vulnerable there. Hector Bellerin, while a better player than most give him credit for, is more comfortable when he is attacking and not when he is on the back foot.

Arsenal will have to provide extra protection against counter-attacks so Bellerin is not left alone on an island all night against the likes of Rashford and Shaw.

The United left flank duo should once again click and be able to produce for them in what could be a big win if they can hit the Gunners on the counter.
