Arsenal face the toughest test of their season so far when they take on Manchester United on Sunday.
The Gunners have made a lightning start to the campaign, winning all five matches to sit top of the Premier League, but face an improving United side at a ground where they do not have a good record.
A draw at Old Trafford at 3.50 is our first Man Utd vs Arsenal prediction.
Manchester United Odds
After back-to-back defeats to Brighton and Brentford, United are on a roll with three consecutive wins.
The victory over Liverpool sparked their upturn of fortunes and 1-0 successes at Southampton and Leicester have lifted them to fifth in the table.
The feelgood factor seems to be returning after Cristiano Ronaldo stayed at Old Trafford and Caesmiro and Antony arrived in big-money deals.
Jadon Sancho has found form and his winner secured three points at the King Power Stadium.
Boss Erik ten Hag said: “Maybe that is too quick to say that (we have turned a corner). We are happy with it, that is sure.
“You can see there is raising a team, a squad raising, they are sticking together.
“They are supporting each other, they fight for each other, they cooperate – that is important – and if you do that, you get the right scores and we did that the last three games.
“Now we have to step up further, we have to improve further. Sunday, a really good game, a really good test, so we are looking forward.”
A 1-1 draw is Man Utd vs Arsenal betting tips.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Dalot, Martinez, Varane, Malacia, Fernandes, Eriksen, McTominay, Rashford, Sancho. Elanga.
Mikel Arteta bolstered his squad with the eye-catching signings of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City this summer and that shrewd business has propelled the Gunners to another level.
Arsenal are the pace-setters in the top flight this season so far following wins over Crystal Palace, Leicester, Bournemouth, Fulham and Aston Villa.
Gabriel Martinelli netted a 77th-minute winner in the 2-1 success over Villa on Wednesday night after Jesus’ opener was cancelled out by Douglas Luiz’s leveller.
Arteta said: “That’s the mentality we want to show as a team and the character we want to show, to react immediately.
“The disappointment (of) conceding goals is part of the game, like giving the ball away or having a bad action is.
“It’s about the next action, the next phase and again, when you play in front of this crowd that helps. The energy they generate is just amazing.”
Injuries are creeping in, though, while Arsenal have won only once at Old Trafford – November 2020 – in their last 15 Premier League visits, losing nine and drawing five.
They have scored last in all five games this season and same again is Man Utd vs Arsenal odds.
Last Arsenal line-up: Ramsdale, Tierney, White, Gabriel, Saliba, Saka, Odegaard, Lokonga, Xhaka, Jesus, Martinelli.
