Jose Mourinho rests Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba as Axel Tuanzebe starts

Jose Mourinho has decided to rest Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba for Manchester United’s Premier League trip to Arsenal on Sunday.

Rashford is on the bench after limping following his vital goal in the Europa League semi-final first leg at Celta Vigo, while Ashley Young misses with an apparent hamstring complaint shortly after coming on.

Highly-rated youth defender Axel Tuanzebe starts at right-back given Mourinho’s defensive injury concerns, while Wayne Rooney, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Juan Mata all start.

United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is banned from domestic action, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Tim Fosu-Mensah are sidelined.

Man Utd XI: De Gea, Tuanzebe, Jones, Smalling, Darmian, Carrick, Herrera, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Martial, Rooney
Subs: Romero, Bailly, Blind, Lingard, McTominay, Pogba, Rashford

Arsenal XI: Cech, Holding, Koscielny, Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xhaka, Ramsey, Gibbs, Ozil, Sanchez, Welbeck
Subs: Subs: Gabriel, Giroud, Ospina, Walcott, Iwobi, Bellerin, Coquelin
