25' Save- Eddie Nketiah's thunderous shot is saved well by De Gea. The shot was straight and at a comfortable height for the Spaniard.

24' Off the crossbar- Diogo Dalot with a tremendous strike from outside the box. The shot had wonderful dip but the ball hits the crossbar and comes back into play. Unlucky for the Portuguese fullback.

United's wretched display in Tuesday's 4-0 defeat at Liverpool underlined just how far its has fallen since Alex Ferguson led it to its last Premier League title in 2013.

Languishing in sixth place -- 23 points behind Manchester City -- United has been reduced to scrapping for a top four finish and even that goal could well be beyond them.

United heads to Arsenal on Saturday trailing both the fifth placed Gunners and fourth placed Tottenham by three points.

Defeat against a direct rival for the Champions League places would be a fatal blow for interim boss Ralf Rangnick and his side, which was rocked by the bomb threat received by out-of-form captain Harry Maguire on Thursday.

Arsenal, behind Tottenham on goal difference, goes into the clash boosted by Wednesday's 4-2 win at Chelsea, a vital success that ended its run of three consecutive defeats.

"I said to the players, if you want to be playing Champions League football, you have to beat the top teams," Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said.
