Man United signed Hojlund from Atalanta in August but due to the youngster’s back injury, he hasn’t made his debut yet but Erik ten Hag confirmed on Friday that the Danish forward is ready to start matches.
Sergio Reguilon made a deadline day move to Old Trafford from Tottenham on loan and started training with his new team-mates in no time. Ten Hag also confirmed he’s blended in well with the team but with Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia out injured, it’s likely the Spanish full-back will start against the Gunners.
Raphael Varane will miss the game with an injury he sustained against Nottingham Forest last weekend, and in his absence, Victor Lindelof is likely to start beside Lisandro Martinez.
Anthony Martial is fit to start games and is likely to lead United’s line against Mikel Arteta’s men despite the Dutchman claiming Hojlund is ready to start games.

Erik ten Hag is likely to start with this midfield trio after they scored a goal each as Manchester United came from 2-0 down to beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 last weekend.
Speaking of his midfield, the former Ajax manager said: “When we play with Casemiro and Eriksen and Bruno, we are very successful.”
