The Red Devils are in need of victory to ease pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but our tipster thinks the Gunners will make life difficult for them
Manchester United are looking to claim their third Premier League victory of the season when they host Arsenal on Monday night.
The Red Devils have struggled for consistency in the top-flight, winning just four and losing seven of their last 15 games in the division dating back to March, and currently sit 11th in the table.
Arsenal will be in good spirits after coming from behind to beat Aston Villa 3-2 last weekend and three points at Old Trafford will see them move back into the top four.
Manchester United vs Arsenal Latest Odds
Arsenal have not won a Premier League game at Old Trafford since September 2006 – a match which Solskjaer played in – and the Gunners are 19/10 (2.90) to arrest that unwanted streak here.
Manchester United vs Arsenal Team News
Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, Diogo Dalot, Angel Gomes, Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah are all injured, whilst Paul Pogba faces a late fitness test. Mason Greenwood could start in attack.
Kieran Tierney could make his Premier League debut after starting in the Carabao Cup last week, whilst Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding could also feature. Alexandre Lacazette and Emile Smith Rowe are both out.
Manchester United vs Arsenal Preview
After needing penalties to see off League One Rochdale last week despite taking a 1-0 lead at home, United will surely be determined to bounce back here and take some of the ever-mounting pressure off Solskjaer.
However, whilst Arsenal’s away troubles appear yet to be solved after taking four points from three such games this season, the Gunners have been in fine goalscoring form recently.
Indeed, Unai Emery’s men are one of just four teams to have found the net in every league match this season and have scored seven across their most recent three Premier League games, whilst also plundering five against Nottingham Forest last Tuesday.
Manchester United vs Arsenal Tips and Predictions
It is difficult to get onside with Arsenal to win considering they have won just four of their 12 away league games this calendar year, and instead the 5/4 (2.25) price from bet365 on them to score more than once looks excellent value.
This bet would have landed in four of the Gunners’ six games this season, as well as in the corresponding fixture last season which ended 2-2 at Old Trafford.
