Solskjaer: Pogba back in line for Manchester United captaincy

They faced each other several times in the FA Cup during that period, with United winning two semi-finals, in 1999 and 2004, and Arsenal victorious in both a 2003 fifth-round tie and the 2005 final.

The report adds that United bid £50million (h/t Metro) for the World Cup star but could not see a deal through for the 29-year-old.

'When we looked at the whole season Sergio is the FA Cup goalkeeper, to keep players like him at the club he needs to play big games as well.

"For us, it's good because it's a very big test for us in this competition".

Stephan Lichtsteiner is experienced but nowhere near as mobile as Bellerin, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles is definitely not a natural right-back option.

"As a player, pride kicks in and you think, "I'll show all of you", Solskjaer told MUTV.

Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku are set to start at the Emirates but Solskjaer hinted he will refrain from making many alterations.

As Sanchez makes his first return to the Emirates Stadium, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinting a man displaced from the Premier League side will be granted just his second start for him, it is a move that benefited no one - except, perhaps, Manchester City who sense missing out on the Chilean amounted to a lucky escape.

"I don't really think about it that way", said Solskjaer, who won the FA Cup twice as a player in 1999 and 2004.

"He'll be involved. I think he'll love it if the crowd turn against him".

"He's been fantastic in training, his attitude has been spot on so hopefully he'll enjoy the game".

Two old foes meet on Friday night.

It's not happened for him since he left Arsenal and it would be odd if he used this game to get things moving for him again. Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka line up in midfield, while Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey play. And a major talking point has been the way Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba are leading the attacks and scoring goals.

Considering Arsenal's win over Chelsea and Man United's form since Solskjaer's appointment, both sides will go into this clash fancying their chances.

The Gunners are slight favourites but United won't fear playing Arsenal, they have only lost five games in just under 11 years against them in all competitions and the away side have won eight Premier League games when visiting Arsenal.
