Cape Town - Manchester United have been plagued by injuries ahead of their clash against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Arsenal face Manchester United on Saturday, November 22 at home and this is quite possibly the best time to play the Red Devils...Ever!

With the once mighty Manchester side still coming to grips with Sir Alex Ferguson's departure, David Moyes' reign of pain and the introduction of several new formations under Louis van Gaal, Arsenal will have United at their mercy when the match kicks off at 19:30.

Added to the tactical uncertainty, Saturday's fixture comes at a time when United are without 10 (TEN!) first team players including goalkeeper David De Gea, defenders Rafael, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones.

Key midfielders Michael Carrick and Daley Blind will also sit out the match while loan-signing Falcao will be unable to take any part in the fixture. (And there is still a few international friendlies to come so the injury could get worse!)

Manchester United are missing the following players for the Arsenal clash (image via the Independent): 

Place your bets accordingly...
