Arsenal v Man United: Can Gunners end Red Devils’ unbeaten run?
49 Premier League games Arsenal went without defeat between 2003-2004 before bitter rivals Manchester United prevented them from reaching half a century. And while the Red Devils are some way off that number, the Gunners have the chance to exact revenge this weekend.
Jose Mourinho’s men haven’t tasted defeat in the league since 23 October – 25 games ago, and yet still they’re struggling to break into the top four.
They’ll head into Sunday afternoon’s clash at the Emirates as 10/3 outsiders, and United fans will see that as great value given that Arsene Wenger has never got the better of a team managed by Mourinho.
The hosts are 17/20 to win this clash and close the gap between themselves and United to just two points with a game in hand.
The last time this pair met in North London, it was the home side who came out victorious, breezing past their opponents 3-0.
We’d be amazed if we see a repeat of that scoreline, and clearly so would our traders, who make it a 16/1 shot.
A draw would be something of a nothing result for both teams. It’d all but end Arsenal’s chances of achieving a top four finish, while United could potentially find themselves four points off the leading quartet with three games remaining.
But we’re talking about a club in Arsenal who’ve struggled o find any real consistency in recent months and one in United who’ve drawn a staggering 14 games in the league this season.
With that in mind, there could be plenty of value in the 13/5 on offer for the points to be shared. If you’re looking for a correct score, it’s worth noting that two of the last four meetings between United and Arsenal have finished 1-1 (11/2).
As for the first goalscorer market, it’s largely dominated by Arsenal forwards. Unsurprisingly, Alexis Sanchez is the 4/1 favourite to net first, while Olivier Giroud (9/2), Danny Welbeck (5/1) and Lucas Perez (6/1) are ahead of Marcus Rashford (13/2) in this market.
