Manchester United vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 30 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
Manchester United is still finding it hard to rely on any options in the forefront, with the likes of Rashford, Greenwood, etc failing to take the mantle. They have marked in all possible outcomes twice in their form on the Premier League table.
The Red devil is one point behind the Gunners in the league table. The host has lost one in the three ties at home in the league schedule. However, their previous home match was won in a narrow 1-0 score against Leicester City. Their defensive line has become stronger with the arrival of Van Bissaka into the squad.
Arsenal is on the front runner but has encountered trouble in their away fixtures in the league. The Gunners have registered only one win in three league outings. Their previous away game was drawn at the end with Watford. With Aubameyang scoring consistently in his appearances, the Gunners will have a fighting chance at Old Trafford.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction
The teams have been well known for their attack in the middle of the field. The presence of Anthony Martial and Aubameyang at either side will give hopes for a fierce fight in the Old Trafford turf. The Red Devils have scored goals in all their previous seven home ties. Alongside that, the Gunners have also slotted in at least one despite the results. Hence, there will be action on both sides yielding a couple of goals in the process.
Their rivalry has been extending since the 1990s as both teams parted with a point each in the 1999 Premier League. Besides that, the host has managed to stay unbeaten with two wins in the last five encounters with the Gunners at home. Also, Unai Emery’s side has won previously against the host four years back in their visits. Since Arsenal has been winless in the last two away games in the league, the host is preferred as the better favorites in the game.
Henceforth, it can be judged that the match will probably be in favor of the Red Devils in a high scoring game. It is safer to employ a double chance in case of a turn in the tables in the ninety minutes.
