Fulltime Draw

Arsenal vs Manchester United prediction

The pick of this weekend’s Premier League matches takes place on Sunday as last season’s runners-up Arsenal welcome perennial rivals Manchester United to London. The Gunners were left licking their wounds at the weekend after they were forced to share the spoils in a pulsating 2-2 draw at home against fellow Londoners Fulham. The points appeared to have been in the bag after they took control of the game with two quick-fire goals from Saka and substitute Nketiah to overturn a 0-1 halftime deficit. They however were caught napping by the battling 10-man Fulham as  João Palhinha swept in an 87th-minute equalizer from a corner. A visibly upset Arteta will be looking for his charges to respond here in a game that has all the makings of a thriller.

Manchester United have had a rather lukewarm start to the season. After a fortuitous win over Wolves in their opener, they were quickly brought down to earth with a 2-0 loss to Tottenham on matchday 2. Things seemed to get from bad to worse when they went 2-0 down at home to Nottingham in the opening 5 minutes of their weekend match. That seemed to be the jolt they needed to get back to their senses, as they embarked on a wave of attacks, pulling a goal back by halftime and adding two more in the second half to complete a 3-2 comeback win. Their overall performances still leave a lot to be desired and are dealing with a number of injuries to key players. This trip to their old foes’ backyard will certainly be a litmus test for their credentials.

This is a massive game for both of these teams. Arsenal will be keen to get their campaign back on after the little hiccup they had against Fulham. The Red Devils on their part will also be looking to retrace their steps after a less than ideal start to this season. For our Arsenal v Man United predictions, we expect Arsenal to dominate possession with United happy to sit back and hit them on counters. This will no doubt be an intense game but we feel when the dust settles, these two English giants will battle to a stalemate

Main tip: Fulltime Draw

Our Arsenal vs Man United predictions

According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:

Prediction 1: Fulltime Draw

There is pressure on both teams to deliver a win here. The hosts will look to move past their deflating draw at the weekend. The visitors though have struggled to impose themselves this season and will be keen to do a quick reset to their default settings. Despite the injuries they face, United still have enough quality within their rank and file to cause the Gunners some trouble. Having said that, we expect a closely contested game here and we fancy this game to end in a draw with exciting prices for this from Bet365

Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score

This fixture has been a goal-fest in recent seasons. As a matter of fact, each of the last 4 straight Premier League encounters has not only witnessed both teams scoring but also a bucketload of goals with least 4 goals scored in these matches. Both defences have key personnel missing coming into this match which underlines why we are backing the trend for these last couple of years to continue here. Similarly, both teams again have potent forward lines pitting the likes of Saka, Martinelli and Odegaard for the hosts and Rashford, Martial and Fernandes for the visitors. For our next Arsenal vs Manchester United prediction, we feel there is value in backing both teams to score here with pretty good odds at Betway

Prediction 3: Over 3.5 Bookings

It goes without saying that there is no love lost between these two teams. Their rivalry transcends generations and they always go at each other regardless of their positions on the table. This match, despite being only matchday 4 offers both teams a chance to set the tone for the season. We expect these teams to throw everything including the kitchen sink at each other. 5 of their last 6 encounters have had at least 4 cards dished out. The centre referee assigned for this is Anthony Taylor and we fancy him to have a busy time here. We are backing this clash to have at least 4 bookings.
