Arsenal vs Manchester United Match Preview
It will be a clash of old rivals when Arsenal take on Manchester United in the Premier League as both sides look to retain their toe-hold in the race to the title currently hijacked by Manchester City. This Arsenal vs Manchester United match would be played at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, December 2, so read the betting preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
Arsenal have warmed up to this important clash by thrashing Huddersfield 5-0 at the Emirates in the midweek. Mind you, the Terriers have been a tough side to beat this season and the scale of victory should be seen as a warning from the Gunners to the United side waiting for its turn to come to the Emirates. However, the fans would be hoping that this is not another false dawn in their season that has seen ups and downs very regularly. Arsenal find themselves fourth in the table (28 pts, W9, D1, L4) and are 12-points off the pace-setters Manchester City. A loss would be catastrophic for the hosts while a win will help them keep pace with the top-three at least. Can the Gunners continue their momentum?
Manchester United put up a commendable performance themselves in the midweek when they defeated Watford 4-2 away from home. Again, the Hornets have proven to be a tough nut to crack at home which makes the Red Devils’ win very significant. However, manager Jose Mourinho will be wary of how fickle his defence looked when Watford came back from 3-0 down to make things interesting at 3-2. United lost last week 1-0 at Basel in a Champions League group encounter which means that the Red Devils side have vulnerabilities at the back, although they have shipped the least number of goals in the Premier League so far. Can Mourinho get one past his old foe Arsene Wenger on his stomping ground?
