JOSE MOURINHO HAS opted to start Marcus Rashford up front for Manchester United as they play host to Arsenal in the huge Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended for the big lunchtime kick-off, Mourinho has opted to go with young striker, who memorably scored twice against Arsene Wenger’s side last season, ahead of the England captain.

Arsenal arrive at Old Trafford in fourth place but only two points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, while United are in two places and six points behind Wenger’s side heading into the game.
