By Richard Clarke at Old Trafford

Arsène Wenger opted to make two changes for the Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

Nicklas Bendtner and Eduardo dropped out from side that beat Celtic in midweek. Robin van Persie and Andrey Arshavin came in.

With Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) injured, Abou Diaby, Denilson and Alex Song formed the midfield three while Willam Gallas and Thomas Vermaelen were paired at centre back.
