Arsenal will be without club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette when they welcome Premier League rivals Manchester United to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The France international was forced off at half-time in Wednesday's 5-0 victory over Huddersfield due to a groin injury and manager Arsene Wenger has ruled him out of the game against the Red Devils.

A hamstring problem also saw Alexis Sanchez substituted in the Huddersfield win but Wenger is more optimistic over his availability while Alex Iwobi (leg) could also be back in contention. Santi Cazorla (Achilles) is a long-term absentee.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has escaped Football Association sanction for his alleged kick at Brighton's Gaetan Bong.

Images appeared to show the 24-year-old kicking out twice at the Albion defender just before Ashley Young's strike deflected in off Lewis Dunk to secure Jose Mourinho's men a 1-0 win.

Lukaku was left sweating on FA action as retrospective punishment for violent conduct would incur a three-match ban, ruling him out of the derby clash with Manchester City.

However, Press Association Sport understands the striker will face no action from the governing body over the incident.
