Radamel Falcao leads the line for Manchester United against Arsenal with Wayne Rooney out injured. The Gunners remain unchanged for the sixth straight Premier League match as Aaron Ramsey starts for the Gunners.

The Gunners had been unchanged for their previous five Premier League games, the first time they had done that since 1994 under George Graham.

In total, Louis van Gaal has made two changes to his United team who defeated Crystal Palce last weekend. Rooney and Luke Shaw drop out of the squad with injury as Marcos Rojo and Falcao starting. The Colombian will lead the line and Chris Smalling will be handed the captain's armband.

Danny Welbeck has not made it back from injury so Wenger's bench is also unchanged. The Gunners will have plenty of attacking options on the bench, with Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott all available.

Man Utd: De Gea; Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Mata, Blind, Herrera, Young, Fellaini, Falcao.

Subs: Valdes, Blackett, McNair, Di Maria, Januzaj, van Persie, Wilson.


Arsenal: Ospina, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Ramsey, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud.

Subs: Szczesny, Gibbs, Gabriel, Flamini, Rosicky, Wilshere, Walcott.
