How Man Utd could line up at Arsenal with Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof all returning for Solskjaer

MANCHESTER UNITED could welcome back three defenders for their trip to Arsenal this weekend.

Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw all missed the Red Devils' 2-1 defeat at home to Sheffield United on Wednesday night.

But the trio are hoping they will return against the Gunners on Saturday as they look to get their Premier League title challenge back on track.

Speaking about Bailly ahead of the Sheffield United game, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said; "Eric was down to play this game but he got a bang yesterday and is sore and bruised. It’s unfortunate for him."

Meanwhile, Shaw made a brief substitute appearance against the Blades and is expected to come back into the fold this weekend.

But Lindelof could still miss out as United continue to monitor the back problem which saw him rested in their defeat at Old Trafford.

Another selection headache for Solskjaer involves who he will choose to the lead the line for his side.

Anthony Martial was selected on Wednesday but Edinson Cavani came on mid-way through the second half as the Frenchman was pushed into a role out wide.

It remains unclear whether Solskjaer will opt to stick or twist with the front line which was misfiring in midweek.

But one man who definitely will not feature is Jesse Lingard as he is preparing to move out on loan to West Ham.

The 28-year-old revealed he was on his way down to London last night to secure the temporary switch to the London Stadium.

Man Utd were knocked off top spot by rivals Manchester City on Tuesday night after Pep Guardiola's side made a statement with a 5-0 win over West Brom.
