Louis Van Gaal will be out to avoid last minute dramas this weekend. The Red Devils are currently five points clear of fifth place Liverpool in the race for the final Champions league spot and a win over Arsenal would confirm their return to the top tier next season. A defeat however would make for a nervy final day. Van Gaal is set to be without Luke Shaw and Wayne Rooney for the clash however their absence is set to be covered by the return of Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria and Robin van Persie with all three expected to start. United beat Crystal Palace 2-1 last time out to end a run of three successive defeats and they will hope to build on that strength and move into contention for a top three finish, avoiding a lengthy qualification process for the Champions league in the process.

Gunners forward Danny Welbeck misses out on a return to his former club. The 24-year-old has missed the last two games with a knee problem and he has not yet recovered to take his place in the squad. Aaron Ramsey is also unlikely to feature even though he has resumed training following a knock.  Arsene Wenger’s men were surprise 1-0 losers to Swansea in their last outing and having lost already to their league rivals earlier in the season will be out to avoid an unwanted double.

Pizza and tunnel showdowns have, in the past, played key roles in this fixture however both sides faithful to mount a significant title challenge means this clash lacks the edge of previous seasons.  All the aces appear to be on the side of the Red Devils. Van Gaal’s men are unbeaten in seven Premier League meetings between these sides and have lost just one in 12.Arsenal’s last league victory at Old Trafford was in September 2006 although they did win there in the FA Cup earlier this season.
