Arsenal vs. Manchester United: Key players

We take a look at the players who will play a key role in this high intensity game.

As an in-form Arsenal take on current champions Manchester United at Old Trafford, we take a look at the players who will play a key role in this high intensity game.


Aaron Ramsey
The in-form Welsh midfielder is on a goal scoring spree at the moment. With the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool on his goal scoring list, Aaron Ramsey will like to add Manchester United too to his list this Sunday.

Olivier Giroud
Replacing the departing Robin van Persie was never an easy task and French striker Olivier Giroud found that out last season. This year, Giroud looks a changed player as he is providing goals (5) as well as (4) assists. With Manchester United upfront, he will like to show ex-Gunner RvP, what the former is made of!

Laurent Koscielny
Defender Laurent Koscielny was part of the team that lost 8-2 at Old Trafford, two seasons ago but the French defender would like to put that past behind him and help his side keep a clean sheet.

Mesut Ozil
The German midfielder has boosted the team since his 42.5 million euros move from Real Madrid. It is said that big players announce themselves on the biggest stage and for Ozil it is none better than to show his talent at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ – Old Trafford.

Manchester United

Wayne Rooney
English forward Wayne Rooney played down Arsenal’s chances last week, proclaiming that the Gunners melt down after February and March. ‘Roo’ has always loved to score against the Gunners (2 hattricks against them) and this Sunday, he would love to add another feat to his cap.

Adnan Januzaj
The Belgian starlet has been the talk of the town ever since his 2 goal heroics against Sunderland. Januzaj has kept the likes of Nani, Shinji Kagawa warming the benches.

Robin van Persie
He scored against his former employees last season (2) and would like to repeat that feat again. The Arsenal fans might hate him but Arsene still considers him as a Gunner by heart.

Nemanja Vidic
If the Red Devils are to win this big contest, Serbian Nemanja Vidic has to be at his prime. Once considered as the rock at the heart of Manchester United defence, Vidic has been plagued by injuries and bad form. With Arsenal visiting this Sunday, Vidic like to show his manager that he is still the best around.
