Jose Mourinho was at his fiery best earlier today when asked about his team ahead of the big game against Arsenal tomorrow. One player in question was Chris Smalling, who has attracted a lot of media attention in recent weeks.
According to the British sources, Smalling is supposed to be ruled out for a month but Mourinho clearly felt otherwise as he did not comment on defender’s injury and burst out on the reporters for trusting their phoney sources.
On the back of those claims, I do believe, Smalling is fit to take on Arsenal and we may also see Luke Shaw get a start as Mourinho also claimed that the left back is fit and ready to start the match.
Predicted Man United lineup vs Arsenal
De Gea, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Pogba, Herrera, Martial, Mata, Rashford
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is suspended for this game which will see Rashford get a game in his favored central striker role with Wayne Rooney expected to start from the bench.
