Two of English football’s biggest clubs meeting in the latest instalment of one of the Premier League’s greatest rivalries.
This fixture is not what it once was though as both sides are massively underperforming just now.
Both Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Unai Emery will be hoping that a win here can kick start the season of their respective sides.
Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League home matches against Arsenal, winning eight and drawing four.
Manchester United won the last 3 out of 5 fixtures against Arsenal. Historically they do not have trouble defeating them. Manchester United is in a poor form this season. They have only 8 points from the 6 games they played in the Premier League with a 8:6 goal difference. They are scoring and conceding in every game they play. They will need a lot from Marcus Rashford in this game in order for them to win the vital 3 points.
Their manager Solskjaer might get sacked if they lose this game. Arsenal have kept their most important player Aubameyang this summer. They have 10 points after some solid victories in these first few games. My opinion is that we can expect a very tight game in this one. Both teams are looking to secure as good as possible results in this game hoping to achieve their season goals.
Manchester United: De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Pogba, James, Mata, Lingard; Greenwood.
Arsenal: Leno; Tierney, Luiz, Sokratis, Chambers; Xhaka, Guendouzi, Torreira; Saka, Aubameyang, Pepe.
Manchester United 7/5
Manchester United vs. Arsenal prediction
Arsenal are undoubtedly the form team coming into the match and will hope Nicolas Pepe can catch alight after scoring his first goal for the club during their rout of Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup. However, on home soil, and even without a number of key players, United’s players should rise to the occasion in a wide-open and ultimately even game.
