Manchester United vs Arsenal Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

A disappointing performance at the St Mary’s Stadium witnessed Manchester United only managing a 2-2 draw with Southampton. Stuart Armstrong and Cedric scored inside the 20th minute to send shockwaves, but Manchester United managed to recover and equalise through Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera. However, there was not to be a winner in the match. Arsenal were involved in an epic North London derby that finished with a 4-2 score. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 10th-minute penalty was cancelled out by two quick goals – through Eric Dier and Harry Kane. Unai Emery made several tactical changes at half-time and this paid off in great fashion with second-half goals from Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, and Torreira. Jan Vertonghen was sent off late in the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Arsenal are going through an unbeaten run that stretches to an incredible 19 matches in all competitions. United were quite poor against Southampton but Mourinho’s team are expected to raise their game against Arsenal. Still, it may not be enough to take on a Gunners outfit that has confidence and momentum on their side. Arsenal’s last league victory at Old Trafford was in 2006 but I would go with a win for the Gunners.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has pace and power to threaten any defence. He may especially enjoy playing against a United defence that is missing a number of defenders. Mourinho named a makeshift defence against Southampton and it is likely to continue against the Gunners. I would back Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score anytime.

Arsenal win – 2/1

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score anytime – 10/11

Manchester United Preview

Manchester United have been going through an injury crisis, but Jose Mourinho has been worried more about the lack of a commitment and professionalism from players. Some of the United stars gave their worst displays in the first half against Southampton. Mourinho was quite distraught in the pre-match press conference leading up to a game against team like Arsenal. After having displayed a lot of fighting spirit to overcome rumours about the potential sack, Mourinho is having to do the same all over again.

Manchester United Team News

Chris Smalling (foot), Marcus Rashford (knock), Eric Bailly (back), Luke Shaw (knock), Matteo Darmian (knock), Victor Lindelof (hamstring), and Alexis Sanchez (hamstring) provide a huge injury headache for Jose Mourinho, who will also be without Ashley Young due to suspension.

Arsenal Preview

Unai Emery has been able to bring back the joy to Arsenal supporters and the victory over Tottenham during the weekend is a huge step forward in the right direction for the Gunners in this new era. Even though Arsenal have been through an extended unbeaten sequence, Emery’s tactics have been questioned in certain quarters after failing to beat the top teams. However, the manager showed a sense of bravery and tactical superiority to gain a huge amount of respect amongst his peers.

Arsenal Team News

Danny Welbeck (broken ankle), Mesut Ozil (back), Nacho Monreal (hamstring), and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are unavailable due to injuries. Granit Xhaka is suspended for the match.
