Cape Town - Manchester United's injury-wrecked side will travel to the Emirates in search of their first away win of the season.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is counting the cost of the recent batch of international games, with goalkeeper David de Gea (dislocated finger), defender Luke Shaw (unspecified) and midfielders Angel Di Maria (ankle), Daley Blind (knee) and Michael Carrick (groin) joining an already-lengthy injury list at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal has been unfortunate with injuries since taking over in the offseason, with his defense regularly short of its best players and Colombia striker Radamel Falcao starting just three times following his expensive loan move from Monaco.

United said on Thursday that 12 members of it' s squad are carrying injuries.

Van Gaal's side hasn't won any of its five away matches in the Premier League this season.

David de Gea faces a race against time in order to be fit for Saturday's clash while Luke Shaw and Angel Di Maria should take their place in the starting lineup despite suffering blows while on international duty for England and Argentina respectively.
