Manchester United travel to North London to face Arsenal in their final Premier League clash ahead of the international break.

The Reds have won two games and lost one in their opening three and will be going up against a strong Arsenal team despite them also looking off the levels they were showing under Mikel Arteta last term.

Last term at The Emirates, United suffered a 3-2 defeat after a last-minute winner from Eddie Nketiah.

In this encounter, Erik ten Hag’s side has been strengthened through various additions to the squad.

The manager confirmed that Rasmus Hojlund is back fit and he has been spotted traveling with the squad to the capital.

Meanwhile, emergency loanee Sergio Reguilon has also been included in the squad after signing on a year-long loan on deadline day. He comes into the fold following injuries to both Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia.

New backup goalkeeper Altay Bayindir has also been included in the matchday squad after his deadline day signing. The Turkish shot-stopper has replaced the departed Dean Henderson in the squad after his move to Crystal Palace.

Jonny Evans has also been included in the squad after signing a one-year deal at the club following his short-term contract during pre-season. He replaces the injured Raphael Varane but Victor Lindelof is expected to start.

Despite securing the signature of Sofyan Amrabat on deadline day too, he is not going to be involved against Arsenal.

Scott McTominay and Jadon Sancho were not spotted with the squad, although United haven’t given any indication whether they have travelled separately or not at all.

Youngsters Dan Gore and Hannibal Mejbri enter the fold and are included in the squad. It was unsure whether Hannibal would leave the club permenently or on loan on deadline day, but with him staying it is expected he has a larger role to play under Ten Hag.

The full squad, as reported by the Manchester Evening News, can be read below.
