Arsenal vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium.
This upcoming match-up seems to have all the settings in place to become a classic. The Gunnners are on a tear the last several match-days, as they have begun to make reparations for their slow start to the season.
As of now, they remain one of the very few teams in the entire competition to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days, and impressively they have been scoring in plenty in the process as well.
Mikel Arteta seems to be more trusting of his youth, and incidentally the departure of the outspoken Mesut Ozil appears to be a good charm for the team.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are upset as they messed up at the top of the table. They had rose to the top spot of the table after a gap of years, and sadly they could not sustain it.
It’s noteworthy that they were overtaken by arch-rivals and title-hopefuls Manchester City, and it was due to a loss against the dead-last placed Sheffield United.
By all means, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are seething with anger – and the case of the fans is even worse. They need amends right now.
Moreover, the Citizens next take on the Blades, and they are expected to deliver an easy win. Should the Devils drop points this weekend, the gap at the top would widen, and it’s simply unacceptable.
By the looks of things, expect a goal-fest between these two titans.

Arsenal vs Manchester United Prediction
The Gunners recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Southampton. In the meantime, the Devils lost 1-2 at home against Sheffield United.
Going on, Arteta’s men were unbeaten in seven of their previous eight overall matches, and they had won six of these fixtures as well. And note that they had scored three or more goals in four of these games.
On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in 12 of their past 14 match-ups, and they had won 12 of their last 16 games on the road.
On top of that, most of the previous h2h clashes also had goals in huge numbers, and especially the ones at this ground.
For the reasons, expect a high-scoring affair this weekend.
