Manchester United vs Arsenal Match PreviewManchester United and Arsenal will face off on Saturday with a place in the FA Cup final four on the line.
Both teams come into this game in need of the morale boost an FA Cup Quarter-Final victory can bring. Premier League leaders Manchester United have suffered back to back league defeats against Chelsea and Liverpool. In the last couple of weeks Arsenal have also suffered, having lost the Carling Cup Final to Birmingham City, and been dumped out of the Champions League by Barcelona.
Defender Nemanja Vidic will return from suspension for United, while Rio Ferdinand remains doubtful with a calf injury. Midfield pair Nani and Anderson are sidelined with injury for the Red Devils.
Striker Robin van Persie is fit to start for Arsenal, while captain Cesc Fabregas is ruled out with a hamstring injury. Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is ruled out for the Gunners, while Alex Song, Theo Walcott and Thomas Vermaelen are all sidelined for the Gunners.
