However, after coming off the bench in their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and 2-2 tie with Fulham, Zinchenko could start against Erik ten Hag’s side.
Meanwhile, Takehiro Tomiyasu is back from his suspension for receiving a red card in the win over Palace, so he is another option on the left flank.
Leksandr Zinchenko is poised to return to Arsenal’s starting lineup against Manchester United on Sunday.
After missing pre-season, the Ukrainian was left out of Arsenal’s squad for the Community Shield and their Premier League opener against Nottingham Forest.
Mikel Arteta believes Gabriel Jesus is fit enough to start after a 91st-minute cameo against Fulham, but Eddie Nketiah’s maiden England call-up following two goals in three games may keep the Brazilian on the bench for a little longer.
When asked about the rivalry between the two strikers, Arteta responded on Friday, “I don’t see it that way.” I just see pride, and [Nketiah’s England call-up] was meant to be. He shoved everyone. He pushes himself every day to be the best he can be.”
Meanwhile, Ten Hag may regard Sunday’s game at Emirates Stadium as an acceptable opportunity to start new signing Rasmus Hojlund for Manchester United for the first time since joining from Atalanta.
