What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Man Utd
Manchester United have picked up nine straight away victories after Wednesday’s amazing 3-1 Champions League win at PSG and recently beat Arsenal at Emirates Stadium in the FA Cup.
However, the Gunners are unbeaten in 14 Premier League home fixtures, winning 12 of those games, so it will be tough for the Red Devils to repeat that result.
These teams are closely matched on our Trueform ratings and we prefer to sit on the fence by taking 5/2 for a draw this time as our opening Arsenal vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal surrendered fourth place in the table to United when drawing 1-1 with Tottenham at Wembley in the last round of league fixtures, but that was another strong showing from the Gunners.
Aaron Ramsey’s breakaway goal on 16 minutes was cancelled out by a Harry Kane penalty in the second half and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then had a stoppage-time spot-kick saved.
The performance was marred by Lucas Torreira receiving a late red card after catching Danny Rose with his studs in a sliding challenge and he will now serve a three-match ban.
However, fellow combative midfielder Granit Xhaka is still eyeing a place in the leading quartet at the end of the campaign.
He said: “After Arsene Wenger left, a lot of things changed at this club. We are happy with the coach and we have improved a lot, and we work a lot.
“It will be a big step if we return to the Champions League. We want to. It’s not easy, but we will keep working.”
The Gunners are going in the right direction, but do still look vulnerable at the back at times, so 31/10 for a score draw appeals from the Arsenal vs Man Utd odds.
Last Arsenal EPL line-up: Leno, Papastathopoulos, Koscielny, Monreal, Mustafi, Mkhitaryan, Ramsey, Iwobi, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Lacazette.
Alexandre Lacazette is available having missed Thursday’s 3-1 Europa League defeat in Rennes through suspension.
Long-term injury absentees Danny Welbeck (ankle), Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin (both knee) are still missing.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United also missed a penalty last weekend, but still managed to see off Southampton 3-2 at Old Trafford in an entertaining encounter featuring some fantastic goals.
Andreas Pereira fired in a superb long-range strike for the Red Devils, while Romelu Lukaku bagged a powerful double.
Getting the Belgium forward back to top form is a huge boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who had previously preferred Marcus Rashford down the middle.
Lukaku continued his resurgence with another brace in Paris to make it six goals in three games!
“He is a quality goalscorer,” beamed Solskjaer. “We need to have him more in front of the goal, but he has done fantastic in his work-rate and attitude.
“He loves scoring goals, he smiles every day, he does extra shooting in training. He has the quality with his right foot and left foot.”
United do still have a lengthy injury list, but they have shown great spirit under Solskjaer and 23/2 for a repeat of December’s 2-2 draw at Old Trafford between these teams is added to our Arsenal vs Man Utd betting tips.
Last Man Utd EPL line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Young, Shaw, Pogba, Pereira, McTominay, Sanchez, Lukaku, Rashford.
Anthony Martial will return from a groin injury for United this weekend, with Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera also on the brink of comebacks.
Paul Pogba is available after serving a European suspension in midweek, but Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian remain unavailable.
