The rivalry between Arsenal and Manchester United was prevalent during the era of the Premier League, and now the two clubs face each other, but this time the battle is for a place in the top four instead of the title. After United’s terrible start to the season not many people thought that they are a serious contender for the Champions League qualification spots, but after Solskjaer took over the Red Devils look like a different team. During midweek they Eliminated PSG in the Champions League 1/8 finals after a dramatic 1-3 win in France. The morale in the dressing room is high, and a win here for United would mean a serious step towards securing a top four finish.

Arsenal seem to be on the other end of the spectrum at the moment. The Gunners missed an opportunity to overtake Manchester United after Aubameyang missed a last minute penalty against Tottenham. In addition, Arsenal suffered a 3-1 defeat against Rennes on Thursday, and their chances of progressing further in the Europa League don’t look so good. The Gunners can’t afford to lose at home to United because that would mean a four-point difference between the two teams with eight games to go.

Team News

Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding, and Hector Bellerin are still out with long-term injuries for the Gunners. The other right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner is also a doubt, but Ainsley Maitland-Niles seems to be fit, seeing as he was on the bench for Arsenal’s previous games. However, Emery has to decide between starting him or using Mustafi as a full-back again. Lacazette was suspended for the Europa League clash, so he is rested and will likely start. However, that means that Aubameyang will probably be on the bench, seeing as the Arsenal manager doesn’t like to play them together. Lucas Torreira received a red card for his tackle on Danny Rose last week and is suspended for the game.

United’s injury list looks really worrying, but that didn’t stop them from eliminating PSG in the Champions League. Paul Pogba was suspended for that match, but he will be back at the Emirates to give his side a boost. United’s injury list for this game includes Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, and Alexis Sanchez. Phil Jones and Anthony Martial are doubts, and they probably won’t feature.

Prediction

A must win game for both teams, which makes it difficult to predict. United are clearly the side in better form, having won ten from their last twelve league matches. However, Arsenal still have an impressive home record in the league, winning their last eight fixtures at the Emirates. United won 1-3 the previous time these two sides met here, but that was a cup match. The stakes are much higher now for both sides. One thing which seems to be consistent is that both teams score a lot of goals.

Arsenal have scored two or more in their previous six home games, and there have been more than 2.5 goals in the previous four meetings between these two sides. Those of you who like to risk could go for a Manchester United win at 2/1, but our prediction for this game is Over 2.5 goals which has decent odds at Unibet.
