What Trueform says for Man Utd vs Arsenal
Arsenal put in an outstanding display when beating Tottenham on Sunday and will now face Manchester United on the back of a 19-match unbeaten run.
The Red Devils have laboured through their last few fixtures and the Gunners must surely be eyeing a first Premier League win at Old Trafford since 2006.
Spurs have already come out on top here this term and 39/20 for their north London neighbours to follow suit is our initial Man Utd vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United looked to have turned the corner when a 2-1 Champions League triumph at Juventus completed a trio of hard-fought victories, but it has been back to square one since then.
After being outplayed in a 3-1 derby defeat, Jose Mourinho’s men were lucky to pick up a point at home to Crystal Palace and needed a stoppage-time strike to edge out Young Boys.
The Red Devils then had to recover from an incredibly sloppy start when drawing 2-2 at struggling Southampton, where Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera hit the target.
Mourinho criticised United’s often lethargic approach at St Mary’s Stadium, stating: “We don’t have many mad dogs; the ones that bite the ball all the time and press all the time.
“That’s the people who are aggressive on the ball, fight hard to recover the ball. It’s about that appetite, that fire that you have, you need that to recover the ball faster, and higher on the pitch.”
Arsenal, meanwhile, have been showing that hunger and desire since being rejuvenated by the arrival of Unai Emery and could well overrun United on recent evidence.
Looking at the Man Utd vs Arsenal odds, we’re expecting a high-tempo effort from the visitors, so 3/1 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game is good value.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Jones, Young, Shaw, Pogba, Herrera, Fellaini, Matic, McTominay, Lukaku, Rashford.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal trailed at the break against arch-rivals Tottenham, with Eric Dier and Harry Kane replying to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s early penalty.
However, the Gunners have made a habit of coming on strong in the second half of matches this season and did so again at Emirates Stadium.
Aubameyang fired in a fine second before goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira gave Emery the winning feeling in his first north London derby – and further strengthened Arsenal’s top-four credentials.
“It is a very big victory, we showed our supporters and we gave them the victory because it is a very special match against Tottenham, for us it is special also,” said Emery.
“But above all it is three points, like against Bournemouth. We are happy, we are enjoying and now I am thinking of the match on Wednesday in Manchester.
“We need to continue our process, creating our way. For our confidence, this was a very good match.”
Aubameyang heads the Premier League Golden Boot table on 10 and half of those goals have come on the road.
The former Borussia Dortmund striker has the pace and movement to trouble a static Red Devils defence and 5/1 for him to open the scoring is added to our Man Utd vs Arsenal betting tips.
Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Bellerin, Papastathopoulos, Holding, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Mkhitaryan, Torreira, Iwobi, Xhaka, Aubameyang.
Southampton 2-2 MAN UTD – Romelu Lukaku, Ander Herrera
ARSENAL 4-2 Tottenham – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2), Alexandre Lacazette, Lucas Torreira
