Manchester United vs Arsenal

ARSENAL will be aiming to extend their winning run to five matches in the Premier League when they meet Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Mikel Arteta’s men are pushing champions Man City all the way in their pursuit of a first top-flight crown since 2004.

Last weekend, the Gunners threw down the gauntlet to their title rivals by brushing aside Bournemouth 3-0 at the Emirates.

Head to head: Theatre of Broken Dreams for Arsenal?

Arsenal have taken top honours at Old Trafford just once since 2006. With that solitary success coming back in 2020 in front of no supporters. It’s been a different story at the Emirates though. Where the Gunners have won the last two meetings, running out 3-2 victors in this season’s reverse fixture.

Man United claimed a 3-1 victory in last season’s corresponding fixture thanks to a second-half brace from Marcus Rashford.

Players to watch: Rice to rise to the occasion

Declan Rice has been a standout performer for Arsenal this season. After making the net bulge against Bournemouth last weekend. The England international is as big as 4/1 on JILIACE to repeat the trick at Old Trafford.

Man United hope to have Bruno Fernandes back in the starting line-up on Sunday. And the Portuguese playmaker holds plenty of appeal to register a shot on target at even-money on JILI ACE.

Predicted lineups

Along with the aforementioned Bruno Fernandes, the likes of Lisandro Martinez. Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay are all back in contention for Manchester United this weekend.

Arsenal should have a clean bill of health for the trip north, with the only slight doubt being Jurrien Timber.

Man United Onana; Dalot, Casemiro, Evans, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund

Arsenal:Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Partey, Rice; Saka, Havertz, Trossard

Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction

Manchester United are unbeaten in five straight home affairs across competitions. But we should really not look much into it ahead of the clash against title hopefuls Arsenal. Maguire is still sidelined, alongside pretty much the entire Manchester United back line.

The fact that Casemiro and Johnny Evans were forced to form a centre-back partnership on Monday at Selhurst Park speaks volumes. This is not the kind of condition you want to be in ahead of the clash with the flying-high Arsenal side.

The visitors are on a four-win thread in the Premier League. They scored eleven goals in the last three league victories. The main bet is Arsenal to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 2.05 odds.

Knowing how poor Manchester United have been defensively of late. We see plenty of room for Arsenal’s stars to shine in the final third on Sunday. Bukayo Saka is the highest-scoring Gunner with 16 goals to his name this season. He also takes penalties and we see the value in backing him to score anytime at Old Trafford at the 2.20 odds.
