Ralf Rangnick is GRANTED his Man United work permit, allowing him to start as interim boss – but he WON’T take charge against Arsenal tonight, leaving Michael Carrick in control

Right, let’s get the admin sorted out. Ralf Rangnick is confirmed as Manchester United’s interim manager until the end of the season.

But with Michael Carrick having helped prepare the team this week, it only makes sense he takes charge for the final time as caretaker. After all he didn’t do a bad job in the 1-1 draw at Chelsea did he?

So it’s Carrick in the dugout, with Rangnick watching events like a hawk.

Rangnick is FINALLY granted his work permit as Man United interim boss
Rangnick was confirmed as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s replacement on Monday, signing a temporary deal until the end of the season before then taking on a consultancy role at Old Trafford.

Results from Premier League matchday 14

To get you up to speed here are the results from the Premier League mid-week matches so far. Just two to go of course, with this fixture at Old Trafford as well as the 7.30pm encounter between Antonio Conte’s rather curious Tottenham side against a plucky Brentford outfit.


Two relative sleeping giants…

But still one massive fixture. For now, gone are the days when this was about the title, but a top four place is still up for grabs for these two clubs as Ralf Rangnick prepares to see just what work he has cut out for him to get Manchester United firing again.

Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of the clash between United and Arsenal.

Marcus Rashford will be hoping to lead Manchester United's attack against Arsenal
