Arsenal vs Manchester United
English Premier League

Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).

Arsenal host Manchester United in the derby of Matchday No 21 on Sunday afternoon at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners are marching towards their first league title since the 2003/04 season. They are currently five points clear off reigning champions Manchester City with a game in hand on the Citizens.

Nevertheless, their potential defeat here would make the league much more exciting given the third-placed Manchester United are currently eight points behind Arsenal.

Both teams will go into this tie in high spirits after celebrating wins over bitter local rivals last weekend.

Manchester United showed an excellent team spirit to fight back against Manchester Cit despite conceding the first goal of the game around the hour-mark.

Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford completed the Red Devils’ comeback on the occasion.

Erik ten Hg’s men were also in action on Wednesday evening when they got super unlucky to concede a free-kick screamer in the stoppage time that secured Crystal Palace a point in a 1-1 draw.

Manchester United still have seven wins and a draw in the last eight outings across competitions. Can they stay unbeaten here against the best team in the league this season?

Arsenal continued their dominance with an easy 0-2 victory on the road in the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur seven days ago.

The Gunners have four wins and a draw in five matches in all competitions after the World Cup break. They have kept their net untouched in each of the previous three matches across competitions.

Arsenal vs Manchester United Head-to-head

  • The teams have two wins each in the last five head to head meetings.
  • Manchester United celebrated a 3-1 victory in the first half of the season back in September last year.
  • The Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score option landed in each of the last three head to head encounters.

Arsenal vs Manchester United Prediction

Arsenal have been unstoppable this season with 15 wins in 18 games. Manchester United have been in a good rhythm after the World Cup break themselves and we should not forget that the Gunners’ lone loss of the season came just at the hands of Man United in September last year.

We don’t expect a goal fest here considering both teams’ recent defensive showings. The Under 2.5 goals FT pick looks like a decent betting option at the 2.10 odds. The braver tipsters can shoot for the 1-1 correct score bet at the 8.00 odds.

Arsenal vs Manchester United Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.10 (11/10
  • Correct Score: Draw 1-1 @ 8.00 (7/1) odd.
