Giuseppe Rossi 'humbled and grateful' for training with Manchester United

According to the Spaniard, the new boss want the players to show the urge to chase the ball even in the hard moments in games.

However, Man United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn't seem to have been caught out at all.

"There are the three who play the most but then you've got Romelu (Lukaku), you've got Juan (Mata), you've got Alexis, so I've got a front six I can rotate with", he said.

Solskjaer dropped a huge hint that Alexis Sanchez is set to start in attack against Arsenal at his former stomping ground on Friday.

Manchester United have been a different side under the Norwegian.

Barcelona have made contact with the representatives of Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata as they weigh up a move for the Spain worldwide.

"Those are the kind of spaces Sanchez will be looking to exploit to destroy Arsenal's FA Cup dream".

Meanwhile, Arsenal were dealt a big blow earlier in the week when it was confirmed that Hector Bellerin will be out of action for the rest of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in last Saturday's 2-0 victory over Chelsea.

"There will be one or two changes definitely", added the manager, who took over from the sacked Jose Mourinho in December.

A bit part role is not what United had in mind when they presented Sanchez to much fanfare 12 months ago having beaten rivals Manchester City to his signature.

Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini will miss Friday's match through injury, but Chris Smalling has returned to training and Luke Shaw has overcome the illness which forced him out of last weekend's win against Brighton just before kick-off.

The midfielder played three of his four seasons at Valencia under Emery, where he scored 37 goals and supplied 50 assists in 141 games.

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. And a major talking point has been the way Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba are leading the attacks and scoring goals.

"We all know that if you don't enjoy what you are doing you will probably face big frustration on the pitch, disillusions and Manchester United had to change on the pitch", he said.
