Manchester United have pulled off a couple of nice results since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left but their performances remain unconvincing.

The Red Devils now take on an Arsenal side which has lost just one of their last 10 Premier League matches – and that was away to Liverpool.

We’re snapping up 1.87 for the Gunners to avoid defeat as our first Man Utd vs Arsenal prediction.

They won at Old Trafford last season and are unbeaten in three visits to this venue.

Manchester United Odds

With Michael Carrick as caretaker boss, United followed up a 2-0 Champions League win at Villarreal by holding Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The improving Jadon Sancho pounced on a Jorginho error to open the scoring but the Blues midfielder made amends by levelling from the penalty spot.

Ralf Rangnick has since been confirmed as United’s interim head coach until the end of the season and the experienced German is up for the challenge.

“I am excited to be joining and focused on making this a successful season for the club,” the 63-year-old told the club website.

“The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience.

“All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.”

A delay in approving Rangnick’s work visa will limit how much input he has on this fixture, though, and it was not hard to pick holes in United’s display at Chelsea.

The Blues had 66 per cent of the possession, led 24-3 in attempts on goal and 15-2 in corners, while Antonio Rudiger should have snatched a last-gasp winner.

Looking at the Man Utd vs Arsenal odds, we reckon 3.1 for the Gunners to have most corners is a value bet.

Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Bailly, Telles, Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Fernandes, Matic, McTominay, Rashford, Sancho.

Arsenal Odds

Arsenal still have a long way to go before getting back amongst the Premier League elite, judged on the recent 4-0 drubbing at Anfield.

However, Mikel Arteta clearly has the Gunners going in the right direction, with a settled squad now fully adjusted to his style of play.

Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Newcastle made it four victories in five top-flight fixtures and left them only outside the top four on goal difference, with United five points back.

Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli did the damage against the Magpies in a stylish second-half display.

Praising the response to that Anfield thrashing, Arteta said: “You have to try to give the players confidence after difficult moments – if not, it’s not real trust.

“I thought they deserved another chance and they’ve done it. They showed in the week how much they were hurting after that defeat and how much they wanted to put it right.”

We think 6.5 for an away win and both teams to score is worth adding to our Man Utd vs Arsenal betting tips.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has a good record in this fixture, netting in four of his last five encounters with United, including the last two meetings in Manchester.

He is a tasty 6.0 to break the deadlock in this contest.

Last Arsenal line-up: Ramsdale, White, Gabriel, Tomiyasu, Tavares, Partey, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Sambi Lokonga, Saka, Aubameyang.
