Manchester United vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Thursday, 2 December 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK / 21:15 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
Arsenal takes on Manchester United at Old Trafford tonight, with Michael Carrick in command.
As interim Ralf Rangnick awaits his visa, the caretaker has had great successes against Villarreal and Chelsea thus far. Now he faces a Gunners club storming towards the top four.
Mikel Arteta has asked for his team to be more ruthless after only scoring two goals against a poor Newcastle side on Saturday. Mikel Arteta’s side may be without goal scorer Bukayo Saka.
Arsenal has gone undefeated in their past six league encounters with United, including three straight clean sheets, but has never gone seven games without losing.
Manchester United vs Arsenal Head to head :
- United have failed to get the better of this side in their previous 7 meetings.
- 2 or fewer goals were scored in the preceding 5 duels.
- Man United has failed to score in 4 of their last 5 meetings.
- The visitors have 1 win and 2 draws in their last 3 visits to this venue.
Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction :
Arsenal has struggled on the road, with only Norwich having a poorer attacking approach, but the 2-0 win at Leicester last month demonstrated what this bunch is capable of against susceptible opponents, and few teams are more vulnerable at home than United at the moment.
The Gunners, on the other hand, have conceded 11 goals on the road this season, the joint-most of any team in the top ten, so United should be able to produce opportunities even if their own offensive method has flaws.
Given this, as well as United’s failure to maintain a clean sheet at home, the ideal strategy to bet on this game is to support both teams to score, which, when paired with over 2.5 goals, gives us an equal money chance.
