Moyes' team selection will be interesting, though. I don't think he has the midfielders to start Januzaj or Kagawa on the left; I'm guessing he'll start Young there for his defensive abilities. Will Moyes go 4-3-3, with Jones and Fellaini as two of three in midfield, the former ordered to mark Ramsey out of the match, the latter expected to be owned by Cazorla, Arteta, and anyone else who comes inside? Kicking lumps out of Arsenal looks to be just about the only option United has.

This could be another hiding like City gave us but I'm sure DM will play for the draw. This is what it has come to now.

He has to go for the win though as a point isn't enough. And at least we had RVP to count on last season but even he seems to be out of sorts now.

But he can't get it by trying to put out a 'ball-possession' side, so he will have to do as Sir Alex did in the days when Arsenal was a viable threat: rough them up and hit on the counter. Thing is, United isn't solid enough in the center or at the back to soak up the pressure and break out with speed when Arsenal turn the ball over. Moyes will have to set up in a 4-3-3 to have any hope of containing Arsenal. Playing for a draw looks to be the best strategy for not losing.
