Manchester United v Arsenal - Preview

Alex Telles out following positive Covid test as Manchester United face Arsenal

Manchester United left-back Alex Telles will miss Sunday’s match against Arsenal following his positive test for Covid-19.

The deadline-day signing made his debut in the Champions League win at Paris St Germain but did not make the squad against Chelsea or RB Leipzig after contracting coronavirus.

The Gunners clash looks set to come too soon for Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly, while forward Anthony Martial completes a three-match domestic ban.

Arsenal will welcome back a host of regular names who were rested for the Europa League win over Dundalk on Thursday.

The likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bernd Leno, Thomas Partey and Alexandre Lacazette are in line for recalls, while Willian is fit following an ankle injury.

Mikel Arteta is without a number of defenders with David Luiz (thigh), Rob Holding (hamstring), Pablo Mari (ankle) and Calum Chambers (knee) all missing through injury, although William Saliba is available to make his debut if called upon.

Manchester United provisional squad: De Gea, Henderson, Grant, Wan-Bissaka, Fosu-Mensah, Maguire, Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Shaw, Williams, Pogba, McTominay, Fernandes, Fred, Matic, Van De Beek, James, Pellistri, Mata, Greenwood, Rashford, Cavani, Ighalo.

Arsenal provisional squad: Leno, Runarsson, Bellerin, Maitland-Niles, Gabriel, Mustafi, Saliba, Kolasinac, Tierney, Saka, Ceballos, Elneny, Partey, Willock, Xhaka, Nelson, Pepe, Smith Rowe, Willian, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Nketiah.

    Paul Pogba vows to learn from ‘stupid mistake’ after gifting Arsenal penalty

    The Frenchman acknowledged he must improve defensively after his needless challenge on Hector Bellerin handed the Gunners the decisive spot-kick.

    Paul Pogba held his hands up for the “stupid mistake” that cost Manchester United and saw Arsenal end their 29-match winless Premier League run away to big-six sides.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 100th match at the wheel ended in a galling loss, with the Red Devils failing to win in their opening four top-flight home matches for the first time since 1972-73.

    United were a shell of the side that hammered RB Leipzig in the Champions League and Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal punished them, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s spot-kick sealing a 1-0 win.

    It was the Gunners’ first league win at Old Trafford since 2006 – and first at a big-six rival since January 2015 – and gifted to them by Pogba’s needless penalty-box challenge on Hector Bellerin.

    “We know it’s a poor performance,” the midfielder told the BBC. “Myself, I cannot give a foul away like this.

    “I thought I would touch the ball but I didn’t. (I) cost us the goal today with the penalty.

    “Like I say, details. We have to do better, the team, myself, it starts with me.

    “I felt like I touched him a bit, I knew I was in the box, I shouldn’t have given a penalty away like that.

    “Maybe I was a bit out of breath, it made me do this stupid mistake. I will learn from that, I’m not the best defensively in the box, I can work on that.”

    Match Highlights

    Solskjaer echoed Pogba’s view after a match that looked set for a 0-0 draw, just like last weekend’s clash with Chelsea.

    “Paul knows if he stays on his feet and he shuffles the boy… because he was on his way out of the box, it’s a soft pen to give away,” he said. “Those things happen.

    “I know he touched him enough to give away a pen and that went against us. Paul held his hand up and he knows he could and should have done better in that instance.

    “That was the difference between the teams today. It always looked like a 0-0 to me.”

    Roy Keane was watching from the stands as part of his role as a Sky Sports pundit and was far from impressed by his former club’s performance, saying he did not “see guys you want to be in the trenches with, guys you trust”.

    When those comments were put to Solskjaer, the United boss said: “Well, in the first half there were no tackles, no fighting, you have got to create atmosphere yourself.

    “These games against Arsenal were always fierce, tackles flying.

    “We didn’t have the tempo or intensity for that, absolutely, and I was disappointed with the first-half performance.

    “In the second half we were better. Unfortunately, they got the penalty and we just couldn’t produce the response.”

    While United were left ruing what could have been, Arsenal were celebrating what manager Arteta believes is a key moment in their progression.

    “Obviously there is many factors for us and it’s not a coincidence,” he said after the Gunners ended their 29-match wait for a league win at a big-six rival.

    “We have to change that (record) dramatically and very quickly if we want to be fighting to be a top team because if not we’re never going to gain the consistency required at that level.

    “It’s great, big belief for the players and belief when we go somewhere else.

    “To be fair, this season we went to Anfield and played them face-to-face, we went to the Etihad and we did not deserve to lose the game.

    “We come here again and did the same, but this time we win.”

    Arteta was full of praise for Aubameyang, who kept his nerve to score his first goal since the opening day of the season.

    “He probably had added pressure because he knew how crucial it was for us to win here today and how important that moment was,” the Gunners boss added.

    “But I think he took it really well. I’m really happy for him because he might not be scoring but he’s working really hard and bringing many other things to the team.”
