Manchester United have been hard hit by injuries and are facing the possibility of being without nine players ahead of the mammoth clash against Arsenal. 

The Red Devils take on the Gunners on Wednesday, November 5 in an 8:00 PM kick off at Old Trafford.

In United's last game against Southampton Jose Mourinho was forced to deploy Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay in defence alongside Phil Jones due to injuries to Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof who have been regulars.

The nine who are doubtful for the Arsenal clash are Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Luke Shaw, Alexis Sanchez, Marcus Rashford and Ashely Young.

Young is suspended after accumulating five yellow cards this season in the 2-2 draw against Southampton over the weekend.
