Arsenal will be eager to get back on the winning track when they host Manchester United at the Emirates this Sunday. After kicking off their Premier League campaign with decent wins against Nottingham Forest and Fulham, the Gunners hit a bump last weekend with a 2-2 draw against Fulham.
Mikel Arteta is looking for a strong rebound from his squad when the Red Devils roll into town. Manchester United, meanwhile, is riding high after a dramatic 3-2 comeback win against Nottingham Forest at Old Trafford. A win for Erik ten Hag’s crew would push them ahead of Arsenal in the Premier League standings.
Odds and Betting
Despite their recent hiccup, Arsenal is still the favorite in the upcoming match, with Bet 365 setting odds of 4/5 for a home win. Manchester United, who’ve already suffered a defeat in North London this season, are considered the underdogs at 3/1.
If you’re placing bets, goals seem likely in this matchup, given the early season form of both teams. Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals could be a solid bet at 5/6 (Bet 365). While Arsenal boasts a potent attack, they’ve struggled to keep clean sheets, especially at home. The team has failed to keep the opponent scoreless in 17 of their last 21 Premier League home games—a concerning stat ahead of a clash against a Manchester United side brimming with attacking options.
On the flip side, Manchester United’s defense hasn’t exactly been rock-solid either. They’ve conceded two goals in each of their last two games, making this fixture a potentially high-scoring affair.
