Manchester United vs Arsenal Preview


Premier League

Man Utd v Arsenal Preview - Wed 5th Dec, 8pm (BT Sport)

The game of the week in the Premier League sees Arsenal head to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United. While United are struggling to get things going so far, the same cannot be said about Arsenal, who have been nothing short of fantastic in recent weeks. They have not lost a game since their first two of the season, and come here on the back of a huge derby day victory over their near rivals Tottenham on Sunday.

Going into the games on Wednesday night, thanks to their victory over Spurs on Sunday, Arsenal are in the top four on goal difference. They are just one point behind Chelsea in third, and a positive result here could see them move up into that place, if Chelsea slip up at Wolves. Arsenal are now 12 unbeaten in the league, with nine wins and three draws and they come here on the back of two wins in a row.

Manchester United are down in 8th position, though Bournemouth have leapfrogged them by winning on Tuesday night and they have this game in hand to make that position back. Just 6 wins from 14 games tells the story so far for them, they simply haven’t been good enough and that has led to many fans calling for the head of boss Jose Mourinho. United come here on the back of two draws and they have not won any of their last three games, a run that is well below the standards required at this club.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Head to Head Stats

Both meetings between these two teams last season were won by Manchester United, with a 2-1 win at Old Trafford and a 3-1 win at The Emirates. While Arsenal have won at home in recent years, you need to go back to 2015 to find an Arsenal win at Old Trafford, that was in the FA Cup and you have to go back further to 2006 to find an Arsenal Premier League win at Old Trafford.

One thing to remember about the stats though, especially the meetings last year is how different these two teams are this season. Arsenal have gone for youth, they are building for the future and they appear to have found the right formula for that under new boss Unai Emery. Manchester United on the other hand are stuck in a rut, with fractions at the club pulling in different ways, and that is not helping things on the field right now.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Betting Tips

With Arsenal playing so well at the moment, even though they are travelling to a ground they don’t do too well at historically, they offer great value for the game. If ever there was a good time for them to go to Old Trafford to play Manchester United, now is that time, and with that I am backing Arsenal for the win here.

Manchester United are showing nothing at the moment to convince me that backing them is the right thing to do, regardless of who they are playing against and where they are playing. Arsenal on the other hand are like a breath of fresh air, they were fantastic when beating Tottenham on Sunday and if they approach the game with the same attacking manner, I believe they have enough to beat United on Wednesday night.
