Manchester United vs Arsenal Betting Tip and Prediction. In the first leg in the quarter-finals of FA Cup Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford.
Manchester United stand at the 4th position in Premier League and they have only one point less than their today’s opponent Arsenal. Both teams have small chances to win the title, so their main goal is to finish the season at the top 4 and qualify in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Wayne Rooney said for the official website that they haven’t been to a final for a few years, and they want to try to win that game and they are looking forward to that.
Man Utd have very good records against Arsenal – in the last 6 matches between these two days which have been played at Old Trafford United beat them 6 times.
For this match home team will be without Jonny Evans (13/0 d) and top scorer Robin van Persie (24/10 f).
Arsenal is in the great run with four wins in a row and in each game they scored two goals. Their very good performance in the recent period wasn’t enough to make a good result in the first leg of 1/8 finals against Monaco (1-3) in the UEFA Champions League.
“It’s not just another game because it’s the quarter-final of the FA Cup. We fought until now to be in there – now we want to stay in it and go to the semi-final.” – said Arsène Wenger.
Arsenal will be without Gabriel Paulista (3/0 d), Mathieu Flamini (19/0 m), Jack Wilshere (9/1 m), Mikel Arteta (7/0 m), Mathieu Debuchy (10/1 d) and Abou Diaby (0/0 m), while goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny (17/0 gk) and Nacho Monreal (20/0 d) are both doubtful.
Both teams want to win this trophy and the team who go through in the semi-finals will be the main candidate to win this competition. I expect an open match between Manchester United vs Arsenal and at least three goals.
