The former Chelsea striker expects the Manchester United manager to stick with the diamond formation that worked wonders against Red Bull Leipzig in a 5-0 Champions League win in midweek.
Sutton thinks Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are the best options for Solskjaer to deploy in attack but with Martial suspended either Cavani or Greenwood could be called upon.
And Sutton believes Solskjaer would be best served by going for youth over experience against Mikel Arteta’s side.
‘Solskjaer’s rotation has worked well these past few matches. But when those three were together on the pitch against Leipzig on Wednesday, United’s game went up a level.
‘Fernandes excels at the tip of the diamond behind those split strikers. His first-time through ball for the first of Rashford’s three goals was evidence of his ability to see the bigger picture.
‘But Martial is not available on Sunday, so if Solskjaer sticks with his 4-1-2-1-2 set-up he has a choice to make between Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani alongside Rashford.
‘I’m sure when putting pen to paper, Cavani received assurances that he would not merely be a substitute for United, like Odion Ighalo has become.
‘Someone of Cavani’s stature surely would not sign up to warm the bench. But Greenwood and Rashford as two willing runners could work well against an Arsenal back line which will be missing a key figure in David Luiz.
‘Arteta has shown he is prepared to switch between a back three and four. But his defence was exposed against Leicester last weekend when Luiz was replaced by Shkodran Mustafi, with Jamie Vardy left unmarked to head home the winner.
‘There can be no falling asleep on the job on Sunday, otherwise someone like Rashford can make you pay. Just ask the Government…’
