That classic chant of “One-Nil to the Arsenal” – made famous by George Graham’s side of the early 90s – will be ringing around the away end at Old Trafford at the final whistle as the league leaders look perfectly equipped to beat Manchester United by the aforementioned scoreline at 10/1.
Punters are advised to snap up that juicy price, taking advantage of bwin’s fantastic offer of returned stakes if United striker Wayne Rooney scores.
If the England forward does find the back of the onion bag bwin will refund all losing bets on correct score, first goalscorer, player to score two or more and player to score three or more markets.
That offer has every chance of being triggered given that Rooney has a habit of scoring against Arsenal having notched 10 Premier League goals against them.
All of Arsenal’s last five victories at Old Trafford have been achieved by a 1-0 scoreline.
The Gunners showed in their determined 1-0 Champions League victory in Dortmund that their Premier League title challenge is as genuine as a champion racehorse.
When possessing such tools to beat United on their own patch, like this year, history tells us that a 1-0 correct score should be backed with huge confidence.
No Premier League side have won more games 1-0 than Arsenal in the last three seasons.
Arsene Wenger’s men have certainly given their travelling support plenty of encouragement to let rip that renowned Arsenal chant in recent years, having won by one goal to nil 13 times since the beginning of the 2011/2012 season.
Furthermore, backers of an outright Arsenal clean sheet at 7/2 should take solace from their outstanding defensive record on the road, which has seen only 18 goals shipped in their last 24 away days.
United boss David Moyes has only ever coached a team to beat Arsenal twice in 17 attempts, losing 10.
During a tenure that stretched 11 years at Everton, Moyes regularly failed to tactically outwit managers of the top-four clubs.
The Merseysiders’ comparative lack of resources to United was no doubt a factor yet in three games against the big boys this term, Moyes’ record reads: lost two, drawn one, won zero.
