Prediction

Mikel Arteta has to prepare for whatever Ralf Rangnick is ready to throw his way, and that factor of relative unpredictability plus United’s clever attackers might make it hard for Arsenal to deliver another clean sheet. But United’s defense without Varane and Maguire is a problem. Manchester United 1-1 Arsenal.
