English FA Cup
Date: Friday, 25 January 2019
Kick-Off at 19:55 UK / 20:55 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s impeccable streak will be on a serious test on Friday evening when Manchester United travel to the capital for the mouth-watering 4th round of the FA Cup tie with Arsenal. A real buzz is expected in and around Emirates Stadium as both teams will come into the match high on confidence after last weekend wins.
The Gunners rebounded from a disappointing 1-0 loss to West Ham United in some style. They kept a clean sheet for the first time in seven Premier League games against nobody else but Chelsea in the derby between North and West London.
Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny made the difference scoring goals at the opposite end. The Gunners thus returned into the battle for the top-four finish in the Premier League being just three points behind the Blues at 4th place.
Manchester United are also in the same battle following a phenomenal thread of six consecutive Premier League wins. Such glorious form moved them lock on points with Arsenal.
Arsenal vs Manchester United: Head-to-head
Teams shared spoils in a super interesting tie at Old Trafford in early-December (2-2 draw).
Arsenal thus ended the streak of two straight defeats to the Red Devils.
Five of past six H2H games saw goals scored at both ends.
Arsenal vs Manchester United: Prediction
Backing goals at both ends seems to be just the way to go here based on teams’ form and playing style. Arsenal scored two or more goals in three of last four matches in all competitions. Manchester United did the same in six of past seven games with the Norwegian manager in charge.
Looking at the head to head tradition, BTTS is a must-take bet at 1.53. As for the outcome, we’ll go with Arsenal who rarely dropped points in front of the home crowd this season. Unai Emery’s men have a fantastic record of 9 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat in 12 home matches in this term of Premier League.
You can have Arsenal not to lose at the odds of 1.50.
