Manchester United Match Betting News

Considering the hype had surrounded Manchester United at the start of the season, it has to be said that the Red Devils have been extremely disappointing so far.

Jose Mourinho’s men are currently occupying a lowly 6th place in the Premier League table and the Premier League giants certainly need to improve soon in order to stand a chance of challenging for the title.

United did manage a morale boosting 3-1 victory over Swansea City before the international break but if the Red Devils are to put forward their title credentials, they will certainly need to win the clash against Arsenal at Old Trafford this weekend.

Marouane Fellaini, Wayne Rooney, Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Antonio Valencia are all injury concerns ahead of the clash while Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be unavailable due to suspension.

Arsenal Match Betting News

Arsenal continued their long unbeaten run with a 1-1 draw against rivals Tottenham Hotspur a fortnight ago but the Gunners would have been left a bit disappointed at the fact that they were unable to claim all three points from the encounter.

Nonetheless, Arsenal remain in touching distance to leaders Liverpool despite their current 4th position in the table and manager Arsene Wenger will surely want his players to continue with their fine momentum.

Doing so this weekend will not be straightforward though as Arsenal prepare for an encounter against Manchester United at Old Trafford and the Gunners will have to do extremely well in order to claim all three points on the day.

Santi Cazorla, Hector Bellerin, Per Mertesacker, Danny Welbeck and Chuba Akpom are the players ruled out of the clash due to injuries.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Match Prediction

Arsenal are clearly the team in form heading into the clash and they should be considered favourites on the basis of recent results.

However, Jose Mourinho seems to be Arsene Wenger’s kryptonite, with the Frenchman having failed to ever record a league win over his adversary, and there is a possibility that the run might continue on Saturday as well.
