Arsenal vs Manchester United 30.01.2021
This, without a doubt, is the biggest game this weekend and the eyes of football fans from across the globe will be glued on their screens as these two rivals lock horns at the Emirates on Saturday evening.
Arsenal look to have shaken off the terrible form they were in for long stretches of the first half of the season and they look to be making a strong push to get back into contention for European football qualification slots if their recent form in the league is anything to go by.
Man United will be looking for redemption on two fronts. First, they suffered an embarrassing 2-1 home loss to the basement club Sheffield United to put their title challenge in serious jeopardy and hand the momentum right into their neighbor’s hands. Secondly, they also lost at Old Trafford to Arsenal in the reverse game earlier on in the season and they will therefore be looking for their pound of flesh here.
We expect a tighly contested fixture given it’s significance to both teams. We nevertheless feel that Arsenal have a bit of momentum coming into this game and we fancy them to win with a +1 handicap.
