Arsenal fan throws coin at Jesse Lingard during FA Cup clash

Share

Stephan Lichsteiner boasts plenty of experience but very little pace - and Arsenal will need speed here against United's quick attackers.

They faced each other several times in the FA Cup during that period, with United winning two semi-finals, in 1999 and 2004, and Arsenal victorious in both a 2003 fifth-round tie and the 2005 final.

Solskjaer fielded a much-changed side for Manchester United's 2-0 triumph over Reading in the third round of the FA Cup, but is expected to go in with a full-strength starting lineup against Unai Emery's Gunners. Aaron Ramsey did a fine man-marking job on Jorginho, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Lacazette ran the channels well.

Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Ashley Young are three players whose contracts expire at the end of the current campaign, with the club hoping to resolve their futures this month.

Meanwhile, Arsenal were dealt a big blow earlier in the week when it was confirmed that Hector Bellerin will be out of action for the rest of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in last Saturday's 2-0 victory over Chelsea.

And United can get the win.

"For this competition, it's the best match to play".

Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku are set to start at the Emirates but Solskjaer hinted he will refrain from making many alterations. It would be a shame for him to displace Martial or Rashford, however, although he could tuck into a deeper position, as a number 10, if Solskjaer is sticking with the diamond.

Manchester United were looking to make it eight wins in a row in all competitions, and they did so in style at the Emirates.

Sanchez left the club on rather acrimonious terms, having been linked with both United and their rivals Manchester City.

Whatever Arsenal feel about it, United can't see the FA Cup as an annoyance. The confidence is back and this team is not the same as the team I saw five or six weeks ago.

United doubled their lead minutes later, as Jesse Lingard found time and space to give the visitors a two-goal lead in the space of two minutes. The 21-year-old was brilliant all evening and showed no signs of inexperience on a big night, as he put in a solid performance for the Gunners. "I think we are going to have tough moments and tough games, so let's see how the team reacts and how we fight against those circumstances".
