The international break has not been kind to Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal with three players joining an already huge list of casualties.

Michael Carrick pulled out of the England squad with a groin injury, David De Gea dislocated a finger in Spain training and Daley Blind suffered suspected knee ligament damage during the Netherlands' win over Latvia.

That leaves Louis van Gaal with a massive 10 first team players potentially missing for the crunch Premier League clash against Arsenal,

Jesse Lingard remains sidelined, as do defenders Jonny Evans, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Rafael.

Van Gaal will have to rely on his young defenders again to keep out the likes off Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck.

Ashley Young is also out, as is Radamel Falcao.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have four players missing, though two of those are defenders. Olivier Giroud looks set to return, at least to the bench.
