Man Utd projected lineup against Arsenal
United have been on an upswing in form this past month with three wins from four in the league, but a disappointing draw with Real Sociedad in the UEFA Champions League sees David Moyes charges need a quick turnaround in attitude.
Former Liverpool defender and famous Manchester United rival Jamie Carragher commented on Moyes and the Red Devils in midweek for Sky Sports and believes that the time is now for the club to win a big game:
"You could probably say Man United were struggling a few weeks ago.
I wouldn't say they were at their best in midweek in the Champions League either, but they've been on an impressive unbeaten run.
They were decent at Fulham and they had a good win against Stoke, coming from behind, but it's a big test for United against Arsenal on Sunday.
They lost at Man City and Liverpool and it's vital they go out and win a big game now."
United have several injury concerns as Rafael, Darren Fletcher and Johnny Evans are all out while Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverly and Michael Carrick are all late tests.
However, knowing the level of importance of the match, Carrick is highly likely to push through and start.
Predicted lineup: De Gea, Smalling, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra, Carrick, Fellaini, Valencia, Rooney, Januzaj and Van Persie.
