Twitter round-up

Tony: Surprised to see Mesut Ozil starting even with Henrikh Mkhitaryan back injury. Unai Emery obviously has a plan to win this game and not simply grind a result. Looking forward to a good game.

Funky: Chelsea dropping points makes an already huge game even bigger betweenArsenal and Manchester United. Have to get the three points today and continue the good away run. Hope the boys are sharp after the night in Paris!

Jason: Given Chelsea dropping points, like I’ve said before, THIS is MUST WIN! Draw not good enough. When rivals drop points, You MUST WIN REGARDLESS!

Calm down with the CAPS, Jason. Giving me a headache.

Will Ole’s United front roll on?

16:10: After their amazing Champions League exploits in Paris on Wednesday night, Manchester United look to continue their domestic revival.

The impact of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff has been remarkable – the rediscovered togetherness all too evident on and off the pitch.

However, the Gunners will be seeking a response after a Europa League defeat at Rennes on Thursday night – and there will be no VAR to aid either side.
