Betting prediction: Manchester United 2 – 1 Arsenal

The Red Devils welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday for this Premier League match.

 

United have the strong upper hand in the head-to-head in the Premier League, with 24 wins to Arsenal’s 15, from their 56 encounters. When you look only at home matches, United’s record is even more dominant. At Old Trafford, they have 16 wins to Arsenal’s 3 from 28 matches.

 

However, United come into this match without a win in the last 4 Premier League matches against the Gunners. The pattern over the last two seasons has been a score draw at home, before losing 2-0 at the Emirates.

Manchester United vs Arsenal: What are the betting odds?

United’s 5-0 thrashing of Leipzig in midweek was their first home win of the 2020/21 season in 4 matches. They are still searching for their first league win at Old Trafford this campaign. They are the strong favourites at evens to get that win against Arsenal.

 

The previous two matches at Old Trafford in this head-to-head have both ended in a score draw. Odds of 13/5 are available if you see Manchester United and Arsenal cancelling each other out on Sunday once again.

 

Arsenal haven’t taken home all 3 points from Old Trafford in the Premier League since Emmanuel Adebayor scored a late winner here back in 2006. They have also lost each of their last two Premier League away-days. This explains why they come into this one as heavy underdogs at 13/5 despite being above United in the table.

Manchester United vs Arsenal: Recommended bets

United’s last home victory over Arsenal came during the José Mourinho era. They won 2-1 thanks to a Marouane Fellaini injury-time header in April 2018. 101 Great Goals’ prediction of Manchester United 2-1 Arsenal is available at odds of 17/2.

 

Arsenal’s last win at Old Trafford was in the FA Cup 6th Round back in 2015 when Danny Welbeck scored against his former club to give Arsenal a rare win at Old Trafford. You can back Arsenal at 12/1 for the same 1-2 scoreline here on Sunday.

 

These sides played out a 1-1 draw when they met here last season. Odds of 13/2 are available if you see the teams sharing the points with another 1-1 draw on Sunday.

 

Recently Manchester United vs Arsenal has been a low scoring game with each of the last 3 matches in this head-to-head seeing only 2 goals scored in total. You can back another low scoring game here on Sunday with odds of 11/2 for another under 2.5 goals game.

 

Edinson Cavani (pictured above) has only managed two substitute appearances for United since his deadline-day move to Old Trafford. Regardless of this, the Uruguayan international is the favourite among United players at 5/1 to score the game’s opener on Sunday. Or 7/5 to bag his first goal for the club at any time during the game against Arsenal.

 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (pictured below) has been Arsenal’s top scorer in each of the last two seasons, with 22 goals in each. However, this season he is playing catchup to Alexandre Lacazette having only found the net once in his first 6 league appearances this season. Auba is the favourite to get on the scoresheet at 11/10 on. You can back him at 4/1 to end his run of 5 league games without a goal by scoring the game’s opening goal on Sunday.

Manchester United vs Arsenal: Match preview

For almost a decade, during the peak of the Wenger v Ferguson years, this fixture was the main attraction of every Premier League season. It was often seen as an indicator of where the title would end up that season in the media.

 

If you followed the Premier League during that era, it must be surreal seeing these two sides face each other with both in the lower half of the table. Both sides hoping for a win to raise them into the top half of the Premier League.

 

There are certainly extenuating circumstances. United have played 1 game fewer than almost every other side. Plus, any Premier League table at this stage of the season with only 16% of the games played isn’t really worth much. Still, it just feels strange to see the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, City and United in 10th and below in the table considering all but 2 of the titles of the Premier League era have been won by those 4 clubs.

 

While many neutrals would welcome some new faces in the top 4 and title challenge, it is unlikely any of the sides in the top half, bar Liverpool and Spurs, will be involved in the battle for the title or Champions League football.

 

The question though is whether these two sides will be. In recent years they have both struggled, and often failed, to keep a hold of their place in the Champions League which was pretty much guaranteed for most of the Premier League era.

 

And, while both teams seem to have finally found the manager they believe will lead them back to those better times, the longer they take to put together a string of good results in the league, the louder the voices will become questioning their positions at the club.

 

It is ludicrous to say this having watched Arsenal win the FA Cup last season, and witnessed United win back-to-back Champions League matches against PSG and Leipzig. But, it seems today managers are solely judged by pundits and the media on their league position.

 

The value of qualification for the Champions League is so huge, that top clubs simply cannot afford to be outside of UEFA’s top competition for too long. The massive loss of revenue due to the pandemic will likely only increase this feeling.

Manchester United team news vs Arsenal

Eric Bailly, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones remain on United’s long-term injury list.

 

Anthony Martial is also ruled out. He will serve the final match of his suspension following a red card against Spurs earlier this month.

 

Alex Telles (pictured above) is also unavailable for selection due to coronavirus, as confirmed by Ole earlier this week.

“He’s been out now for a little while. He’s tested positive for the coronavirus. But he has no symptoms. He’s fine and we can’t wait to get him back.”
– Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United manager

 

After impressing in midweek against Leipzig, Mason Greenwood, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek will all hope they showed enough to keep their place in the starting XI against Arsenal.

Arsenal team news vs Manchester United

Mesut Özil is ruled out for the Gunners. He has been struggling for quite some time due to a back problem. Additionally, even if fit, he hasn’t been registered in their squad for the Premier League.

 

Gabriel Martinelli is the only player on the long-term injury list for Arsenal. While his rehab is progressing well, we likely won’t see him in an Arsenal shirt again until 2021.

“Will step up his rehab with the aim of a return to full training by the end of the calendar year.”
– Mikel Arteta, Arsenal Manager

 

Pablo Mari hasn’t featured for the Gunners yet this season due to an ankle injury. Arteta (pictured above) is hoping to have him back in full training after the November international break.

 

Rob Holding has missed the last 3 Premier League games due to a hamstring injury. He should make it back sooner than Pablo Mari, and could be involved in full training as early as next week.

 

Calum Chambers is now back in full training. However, having played no competitive football for a while, he could need some time and possibly even reserve matches to get back to full match fitness.

 

David Luiz didn’t feature in midweek against Dundalk due to a thigh problem. He is also a big doubt for this match too. Shkodran Mustafi would be expected to start in his place if he isn’t fit in time.

 

Willian missed Arsenal’s 0-1 defeat against Leicester last weekend due to an injury. He made a 30-minute appearance in midweek and is expected to return to the starting lineup here. The question is who from Lacazette, Saka and Pépé makes way for the Brazilian.
