Sunday’s Premier League action concludes at the Emirates Stadium where Arsenal take on Manchester United.

The Gunners go in to the game on the back of Thursday’s defeat to Rennes in the first leg of their Europa League last sixteen tie, while last time out in the league the held rivals Tottenham Hotspur to a 1-1 draw at Wembley.

Victory here will see them leapfrog their opponents into fourth place, with just eight games left to play.

Lucas Torriera will miss the game through suspension after an appeal to have the red card he was shown at Spurs overturned was lost, though Alexandre Lacazette could return after he was banned for that defeat at Rennes.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is widely available at 5.0 (4/1) to open the scoring, ahead of Aaron Ramsey who can be backed at a price of 12/1 (11/1).

The home win is 2.42 (17/12) with Unibet, with the visitors as highly priced as the 3.1 (21/10) on offer from Betfair. The draw is 3.60 (13/5) with several firms.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had very different emotions in France midweek, after defying the odds to overturn their Champions League last sixteen tie against Paris Saint Germain – one of the greatest nights in their illustrious history.

They also remain unbeaten in the league under Solskjaer, and a win here will tighten their grip on a top four spot and keep them on the coattails of third place Tottenham Hotspur.

Anthony Martial was one of a number of players who missed out in Paris through injury but could be fit enough to feature here, as is the case for Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera.

Eric Bailly has recovered from a heavy challenge in that game, with Paul Pogba is available after his European suspension.

Romelu Lukaku has scored a brace in each of his last three games and can be backed at 7.0 (6/1) to get the first goal of the game here, with Marcus Rashford a 6.4 (27/5) shot with Unibet.

These two sides have already met twice this season, with four goals in each of those games and you can back over 3.5 this time around at 2.65 (28/17) with Unibet.
