A derby which once decided about the title in England is now nothing more than an interesting match between two sides fighting to reach the Champions League spot. The decline of the Red Devils and the Gunners is more than apparent, but still, their head-to-head clash always draws massive attention. Things haven’t been good recently for either of the sides, especially Manchester, and this is a chance to improve the overall impression. And it is a great way to start the new week by having one massive clash on Monday.

United received a major slap in the face against West Ham in the previous round. A routine 2-0 defeat at the London Stadium heated up all the rumours about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future at the Old Trafford. It seems that despite having a fresh contract, the Norwegian manager might be looking for a new job pretty soon. The result of this game could have a great influence on United’s board, which is why it is a small Waterloo for Ole. The Red Devils are currently 8th in the standings with 8 points in 6 contests, scoring 8 and conceding 6 goals. When they play, you won’t see interesting results and some high efficiency. In 7 competitive games, this crew played since the start of the campaign five ended with under 2.5 goals. The latest three saw only one side scoring.

Arsenal didn’t lose since facing Liverpool. After that defeat, Emery’s team had two draws in a row, followed by three wins. In all these events, the Gunners netted at least twice, and it seems that the offence is working correctly at the moment. But what isn’t that good is the backline, as it often breaks down under pressure. You see, in eight games, Arsenal allowed 10 goals, keeping clean sheets only twice. And that is not very good for a team aiming to finish among top 4 in the English Premier League. Currently, the Gunners are fourth in the standings with 11 points in 6 games and 11-10 goal difference. They are playing exciting and attractive football, with an accent on offence, as they have one of the most potent attacks in the division.

Team News

Paul Pogba should be ready for this match, and that is a major boost for United. Anthony Martial too, while Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are all doubtful. Eric Bailly is out for this match.

Arsenal is coming to Manchester without Alexander Lacazette, but Emery has enough options in the attack. Ainsley Maitland-Niles is serving a two-game suspension because of the red card.

Prediction

Our first pick here is the win of the guests. Yes, you’ve read it right, we are picking Arsenal to win. Even though they have problems in the defence, they are still looking much better than United, who is struggling in various areas on the field. The odds on their win are superb, as all the bookies see Manchester as the favourite. But despite that, we are going with the Gunners. Odds on their triumph are 19/10 at William Hill.

We will go with both teams to score in this one. We already explained that Arsenal has a fragile defence, and United should take advantage of that. Meanwhile, it is highly unlikely not to see the guests beating De Gea at least once in this match. Betway gives us 1/2 odds for this.
