Arsenal vs Manchester United
Date: 2nd December 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
Both Arsenal and Manchester United produced impressive attacking displays in mid-week announcing their head to head clash on Saturday evening at Emirates in the best possible fashion.
The Gunners will be hoping to close the gap on their Manchester rivals by extending the fine run of form at home in this term.
Arsene Wenger’s men have been impeccable at Emirates so far in the season winning each of previous seven league outings in North London.
Nonetheless, apart from their city rivals Spurs, Arsenal did not face a top-half opposition at home in this term.
All of the wins, including the 5-0 thumping of Huddersfield Town on Wednesday, will thus count for little when the Gunners come face to face with the second-placed side in the competition this Saturday.
United lost ground on the runaway leaders Manchester City after some unexpected slip-ups (primarily the one against Huddersfield Town on the road).
Jose Mourinho, however, managed to raise the spirits in mid-week when his men notched an impressive tally of four goals away at Vicarage Road against an in-form Watford side.
Ashley Young and Nemanja Matic played their best games of the season, while the likes of Anthony Martian and Jesse Lingard also got their names on the scoresheet later on.
Nevertheless, we have to mention that the Red Devils have been struggling with their form on the road where they lost three of last five matches in all competitions.
Arsenal vs Manchester United: Head to head
The huge rivalry will see its 185th episode this Saturday. Manchester United have been more successful over the history and they’ll come into this with a 15-win lead in the overall H2H stats.
However, it’s Arsenal who’ve come on top when the two sides last met each other, back in early-May this year when the Gunners snatched a 2-0 win at Emirates.
Arsenal vs Manchester United: Prediction
Since Arsenal are yet to drop points at The Emirates in this term of Premier League, we can’t think of the away win picks at all here.
Additionally, Man Utd have lost three of last five on their travels and backing Arsenal DNB might seem to be the best of the betting calls here.
