Confirmed Arsenal team to take on Man United - Ozil in

Nacho Monreal wants Arsenal to take the first step towards their target of finishing in the Premier League top four by beating Manchester United on Sunday.

Arsenal returned to the top four by ending Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's unbeaten Premier League run as Manchester United manager with a hard-fought victory over their rivals.

Granit Xhaka scored with a long-range effort that swerved past David De Gea after 12 minutes before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled the lead in the second half with a penalty after referee Jon Moss decided Fred had brought down Alexandre Lacazette.

But for Emery it is all about emphasising the idea of positive energy.

"We knew Manchester United could use different tactics but we wanted to impose our gameplan and I think we did that".

The goal sparked plenty of debate among the football commentariat as to whether or not De Gea's positioning/reading of the shot constituted a goalkeeping error. We had more chances. "They pushed us a lot and helped us a lot".

"Today we worked very well with the emotion during the 90 minutes because they had some chances". Tottenham's awful form has dragged them back into a race, while United's upturn under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has put them right in the mix.

Aubameyang had missed a late penalty in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Tottenham but sent De Gea the wrong way to score his 17th league goal of the season.

Even Gunners boss Unai Emery admitted the decision was "soft", and Solskjaer said: "I don't think it's a penalty but that's a decision he's made".

United came back strongly but were unable to take their chances, thwarted by Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal. Emery has had three-quarters of a season to work with his players on the training pitch at Arsenal's London Colney base and the defensive drills have clearly had a positive effect; his side looked well-organised and determined against United and were prepared to throw their bodies in the way when it mattered. "That was really good and I liked it". But United fans will be happy that Anthony Martial will most likely start in a front three with Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.
