Manchester United already suffered a major blow to their title aspirations in their midweek clash with Crystal Palace when they were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw.

An even bigger blow was the loss of midfield general Casemiro, who picked up his fifth yellow card of the season and was automatically disqualified for a potential six points against Arsenal on Sunday.

The Brazilian’s absence means Erik ten Hag will have to change his squad to make up for the loss and try to find a response against the league leaders.

Martial, do you want to skip Dalota?

There may be even worse news for Dutch manager with two key players not pictured in the traveling squad.

According to The Manchester Evening News, “Anthony Martial and Diogo Dalot will miss Manchester United’s visit to Arsenal on Sunday.

“The pair were not seen among members of the squad traveling by train to London on Saturday afternoon.”

The French striker, who missed the Palace game, was expected to be available for the game against the Gunners but was not seen among the squad that left by train for London on Saturday afternoon.

Dalot had to withdraw during the FA Cup tie with Charlton Athletic and he missed both the Manchester derby and the trip to Selhurst Park.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has proven himself well since joining the team and Dalot’s absence should not be felt that much.

Weghorst to get another chance

But Martial’s absence could be a huge blow as it means on-loan striker Wut Weghorst will play his second game in a row.

Although the Dutch striker performed well enough against eagles, he still hasn’t fully grasped the Ten Hag’s style and hasn’t picked up speed in the Premier League.

Just because they’re both not traveling doesn’t necessarily mean they haven’t traveled to London, so fans will be hoping to see the duo warm up at the Emirates on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Jaden Sancho didn’t go to London either. He returned to training with the first team this week, but is still a long way from a competitive return.
