Goals from Ashley Young, Anthony Martial and a wonderful solo effort to settle it by Jesse Lingard gave Manchester United a deserved win over Watford on Tuesday.
But Saturday brings a test of a very different type for Jose Mourinho’s side as they travel to Arsenal.
For the Red Devils, defenders Eric Bailly and Phil Jones missed the trip to Watford in midweek, but the Ivorian at least should be back in contention for the trip to Arsenal and there is significant hope that Jones could also return.
Veteran striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has now made four substitute appearances since returning from an injury and ought to be in line for a first start, but Belgian midfielder, Marouane Fellaini is a doubt after missing the 4-2 win in Hertfordshire due to a knee injury.
Nemanja Matic limped out of the midweek victory shortly after half-time but it is hoped that he asked to leave the field as a precautionary measure and that he will be fit again in time for Saturday.
Michael Carrick has stepped up his training in recent weeks following a procedure to deal with an irregular heart rhythm but is not expected to return to play for the time being at least.
MAN UTD POTENTIAL STARTING LINE-UP:
De Gea, Jones Smalling, Bailly, Matic, Pogba, Young, Valencia, Martial, Lukaku, Ibrahimovic.
For Arsenal, their last outing was the 5-0 thrashing of Huddersfield Town which follows a run of five win in six league games.
