United are also inspired by the great form of former Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has been on a scoring spree since joining the team.

The Red Devils lost to Southampton in January but since then have gone 11 matches unbeaten in both the league and cup matches. Last season, United were tight at the back in their home matches where they conceded just nine goals.

The Gunners were beaten 4-3 by Liverpool while the English Champions were surprise 2-1 losers to promoted side Hull City.
