Manchester United vs. Arsenal Tips
The hosts started off the season in the worst way possible, losing 2-1 to Brighton at home and then 4-0 at Brentford. Since these 2 losses, ten Hag’s men have picked themselves up and won 3 consecutive Premier League games, including a 2-1 win over Klopp’s Liverpool. They have looked defensively solid with the centre back pairing of Varane and Martinez producing impressive performances and helping them keep 2 clean sheets in a row against Southampton and Leicester City. Full-backs Diogo Dalot and Tyrell Malacia have also been rock-solid at the back contributing to their team’s recent success. However, this will still be a tough challenge for United as league-leaders Arsenal visit Old Trafford after winning their first five games of the season. They are the only team in the league yet to drop a single point and will be heading into this clash full of confidence. They will be missing key player Thomas Partey here and their captain Odegaard is also doubtful. In a game of very small margins, these key absences could make a difference. This fixture ended 3-2 in favour of Manchester United last season in an entertaining clash, and we could be in for another cracking Sunday main event.
An exciting clash awaits us this Sunday at Old Trafford and as usual, I have you covered with 2 of my best betting angles for this game included in the preview below:
Anthony Martial, Facundo Pellistri & Brandon Williams are out for Man United while Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw & Aaron Wan-Bissaka are doubtful.
Thomas Partey, Zinchenko, Reiss Nelson & Elneny are out for Arsenal while Aaron Ramsdale & Odegaard are doubtful.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen; Sancho, Fernandes, Ronaldo; Rashford
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Lokonga; Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Jesus
- Over 0 cards in the match for Man United
- Over 0 cards in the match for Arsenal
- Over 0 goals in the match for Man United
- Over 9.5 shots in the match for Man United
We have a card-happy referee Paul Tierney in charge of this huge fixture who is averaging 5 cards per game so far this season. I expect both teams to play with a high level of intensity which should result in mistimed tackles, in turn comfortably producing a card each for either side.
Manchester United have bounced back brilliantly after 2 losses to win 3 consecutive Premier League games including a massive 2-1 win over Liverpool at home. Arsenal are missing some key players including influential midfielder Thomas Partey. They have conceded a goal in both of their last 2 games against Aston Villa & Fulham and should concede here again.
Finally, Manchester United are averaging 13 shots per game so far in the Premier League and have cleared the “Over 9.5 shots” line in their first 4 games so far this season, missing out by just 1 at Leicester on Thursday. They managed 14 shots on goal in this fixture last season so this final selection is a solid addition to our betbuilder. Combining these 4 selections give us a solid betbuilder and I am happy to stake 1pt on that as our main bet.
Diogo Dalot averages the most tackles for Manchester United (2.8) per game and has already picked up 3 yellow cards in 5 appearances this season. He will be up against the quick Martinelli and I can see him picking up a booking on the counter. The average price with other bookmakers is 23/10 so 5/1 with bet365 presents us with huge value and I will take that as our 2nd bet with a small 0.25pt stake.
Best of luck if you follow these selections. Please always gamble responsibly.
