Manchester United and Arsenal used to be title rivals but are both languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League heading into their latest Old Trafford showdown.
United have lost two of their first five games while Arsenal have lost half of their six matches so both will be determined to use this game to start climbing the table.
The Gunners will presumably look to keep it tight again after back-to-back 1-0 defeats and under 2.5 goals at 21/20 is our opening Man Utd vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United will be on a high heading into this game after the 5-0 thrashing of RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
A week on from their deserved triumph at finalists Paris Saint-Germain, United continued their 100 per cent start to Group H by securing a first home win of the season in some style.
Marcus Rashford was again the hero, netting a treble off the bench as Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood also scored against the Bundesliga leaders.
As impressive as United were in the closing stages, the scoreline flattered them and it’s important not to forget how they struggled to create clear-cut chances in last weekend’s dour stalemate with Chelsea.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may again need to turn to his bench for a breakthrough, with United yet to be leading at half-time in the Premier League this season.
With that in mind, a goalless first half appeals at 21/10 in the Man Utd vs Arsenal odds.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Pogba, Fred, Matic, Van de Beek, Martial, Greenwood.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Old Trafford has not been a happy hunting ground for Arsenal in recent years and they have failed to win a league game here since September 2006.
Their record against the top teams does not make good reading either. They only picked up two points on their travels against any of the top six last season and they have lost three matches against those teams already this season by an aggregate score of 5-1.
In those three games they have had an average of only 43.9 per cent possession and are averaging 3.3 shots on target compared to five for their opponents.
Creating chances could again be a problem at Old Trafford. Since their 6-1 demolition by Tottenham, United have been much improved defensively and conceded just two goals in four matches in all competitions.
Given that they have come up against PSG, Chelsea and Leipzig in that time, there is reason to think United are starting to click into gear so a home win and under 2.5 goals at 4/1 is our final Man Utd vs Arsenal prediction.
Last Arsenal EPL line-up: Leno, Bellerin, Tierney, Gabriel, Luiz, Saka, Ceballos, Partey, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
