Van Gaal gives latest Man United injury update ahead of Arsenal test

Louis van Gaal confirms that Manchester United have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the trip to Arsenal

Michael Carrick has been passed fit for Manchester United’s Premier League trip to Arsenal on Sunday, Louis van Gaal has confirmed.

The England midfielder missed Wednesday night’s 2-1 win over Wolfsburg in the Champions League with a minor injury but is in contention to feature when the Red Devils travel to north London on Sunday afternoon.

Van Gaal, whose side head to Emirates Stadium one point clear at the top of the table, also confirmed that United have no fresh injuries from Wednesday’s European victory at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal told MUTV on Thursday afternoon: “Carrick can play so I have a choice.

“I am happy to say there are no injuries from last night.”

United head into the game on the back of their 3-0 win over Southampton at Old Trafford in their most recent top-flight outing.

Arsenal, meanwhile, beat Leicester City 5-2 at the King Power Stadium last weekend to move up to fourth place in the table.

Victory for the Gunners would move them level on points with United heading into the forthcoming international break.
