Manchester United vs Arsenal Match Preview
Gone are the days when the result of Manchester United vs Arsenal fixture used to decide the title destination. The glamour may be gone, the context may be gone, but the contest is still a top draw fixture in the Premier League. With Arsene Wenger set to retire at the end of this season, the Gunners would like to gift a win to their departing gaffer by defeating United at Old Trafford on Sunday, April 29, so check out our Manchester United vs Arsenal prediction and betting tips.
It won’t be easy though, as United have been doing many things right, even if critics say that they have not been aesthetic. United are second in the table after 34 games (74 pts, W23, D5, L6) which is three points more than arch rivals Liverpool, who have played a game extra. Just like what Jose Mourinho keeps reiterating, United deserve to finish second and anything lower will not be a true reflection of what they have done this season. The Portuguese tactician will have an added incentive to win this Manchester United vs Arsenal fixture, as it pits him against old nemesis Wenger. Having won six of their last seven league games, the hosts should be in high spirits. However, like they have shown in that shocking loss to West Brom, United can frustrate their fans with inept performances as well!
United’s inconsistencies should give a ray of hope to Arsenal in this Manchester United vs Arsenal fixture. They start this round of fixtures sixth in the table (57 pts, W17, D6, L11). The Gunners are still a whopping 11 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, which means their chances of qualifying for the Champions League are next to nothing. With his side in the middle of an interesting tussle with Atletico Madrid for a place in the finals of the Europa League, Arsenal couldn’t be blamed for putting all their attention on the upcoming trip to Madrid than this fixture. Arsenal have lost their last five league games away from home and have won only three times all season on the road. They may also field a shuffled side, but Arsenal will hope to catch the inconsistent United side at Old Trafford!

Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction
On current form and context, it is easy to rule Arsenal out of this fixture. However, United haven’t shown the consistency to be relied upon and therein lies the chance for the visitors. With old Manchester United Academy product Danny Welbeck within their ranks, the Gunners may pinch the Red Devils just like West Brom did. There should be enough opportunities for both sides to find the net and we are backing goals at both ends for this fixture.
