United look in very good shape ahead of tomorrow’s clash at the Emirates with Carrick, Saha and Evra all back in the squad.

Carrick suffered an elbow injury against Roma on October 2 and did not feature since. However, he’s been training with the first team during the whole week and will probably make the bench.

Evra, left out of the squad against Boro as a precautionary measure, has recovered from his calf injury sustained in Kyiv and is ready to take back his place on the left side of the defence.

Louis Saha, most frustrating of all players, is also back after a knee injury sustained during the warm-up before the Wigan game. He might make the bench therefore we could finally have three strikers in a matchday squad.

Owen Hargreaves worries about his knee but is definitely fit for tomorrow’s game and expected to start and play the whole 90 minutes. His job will be very important: he will have to close down the space in which Fabregas likes to operate.

No fresh injuries, fortunately, though Gary is not included in tomorrow’s squad but that’s not surprising. Arsenal are in a good shape as well with only Robin van Persie and Philippe Senderos out – and the latter is not a big loss.

Almost full-strength sides, both in good form, at the top of the table – everything is prepared for a great game. 0-0 draw anyone?
