Top four hopefuls Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium in matchday 34 of the Premier League 2021-22 season on Saturday, April 23. The match will start at 5:00 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
The home team does not really have much to worry about in terms of injury. Striker Alexandre Lacazette made it to the bench against Chelsea after recovering from COVID-19 and will mostly be available for Saturday’s match as well. The only absentees they have are Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey.
For Man United, the likes of Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani are certain to miss the trip. On the other hand, Fred is likely to make it to the matchday squad while Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to return too.

Arsenal vs Manchester United prediction and tips for Premier League 2021-22
Arsenal are the odds on favourites to win on Saturday. Although they did lose the return fixture 2-3 in December, they have been in better form than Manchester United in the second half of the season.
Manchester United, who last kept a Premier League clean sheet on February 26 against Watford, have not only struggled at the back but have also been one of the most lacklustre teams in terms of offence.
