Red Devils V The Gunners
Manchester United take on Arsenal in the next game of the Premier League. We return this week, following another international break and jump straight back into the action. The Premier League picks up right where it left off. This game between the Gunners and the Red Devils, is round 12 of the season and takes place in Old Trafford. At present, 6 points separate these teams. Arsenal, who are in 4th place, have 24 points from 11 games. United are 2 spots below them in 6th place and a 6 point cushion sits between United and Arsenal. Arsenal have won 7 of their 11 games, drawing 3 and losing only 1 game so far, to Liverpool in the 1st game of the season. United have won 5 of their 11 games, drawing 3 and losing 3. United have left a lot to be desired. They started strong as expected, but what was not expected was a downward spiral in which they found themselves in. Following their loss to City in the Manchester Derby, everything just went down hill. Each week we predict a win for United which is supposed to then set them up for a string of victories landing them back in the top 2, but each week they make liars of us. They have taken inconsistency to a new level. Sure, they have world class players and all the money in the world but it won’t win them anything if they don’t start putting wins on the board. Their last 3 league games resulted in a win, a loss and a draw. And it’s not just here, they are also having difficulties in European football. They were beaten by Fenerbahce 3-1 not long ago in the Europa League.
Arsenal were actively competing with City at the top of the table but a drawn result against Tottenham has thrown a spanner in the works. They were consistently putting points on the board and keeping up with City. We believe Arsenal will keep up the performances. Arsenal to win 7/4 with Bet365.
Arsenal have drawn 2 of their last 3 league games and a total of 3 in the entire competition. United also have 3 drawn games. Between the 2 teams, the majority of the games were 0-0 at half time. We believe this will pay out this weekend. 0-0 Half time, 7/4 with Bet365.
Arsenal rarely win games 1-0. If they win a game without conceding they usually score 2,3 or even 4 goals. If they concede but still win they tend to score between 2 and 3 goals while conceding 1. Because of this trend we reckon over 1.5 goals will be scored in this game. Total goals over 1.5, 3/10 with Bet365.
Arsenal have very good for the entirety of the season. Apart from their opening game where they were unluckily beaten 4-3 by Liverpool, they have been flawless. The draw with Tottenham halted their progress a little bit but nothing they can’t make up. Their performance as a whole is on another level in comparison to Manchester United therefore we predict a win for Arsenal here.
