However, with Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi said to be rested, Calum Chambers and Rob Holding are sure to start as the Gunners’ central defensive pairing.

The big news is that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is fit and will travel to face his old side at Old Trafford.

The Armenian has settled into life at the Emirates and has scored two goals and provided five assists too.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s game, Wenger said, “We have no new problems. Mkhitaryan is available. Elneny is out, Cazorla too of course.

“Everyone else is OK.”

Regulars, Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Danny Welbeck are also rumoured to be a part of the squad.

However, there are questions regarding the participation of key men such as Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey as the Gunners face Atletico Madrid on Thursday and they could be rested.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to lead the line for the Gunners.
