Arsenal vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions. In the most interesting match in Premier League this weekend, in the big derby, Arsenal take on Manchester United at Emirates.
Arsenal stand at the 6th position with three points less than their opponent, so in the case of win, home team could move up at the second position. They suffered the second defeat in the UEFA Champions League when Olympiakos Piraeus beat them in London 2-3. Home side lost three of their last five matches in all competitions and they desperately need three points. In the previous round they smashed Leicester away 5-2, but today they will have big test against more stronger team.
“You have to compare it to Leicester – we got a fantastic result as they had not lost a game. We want to continue our run in the Premier League against a big opponent. It is very tight up there and we have a good opportunity.” – said Arsène Wenger for the official Arsenal website.
Manchester United stand at the second position with only two points less than their city rivals, Manchester City, so if they manage to take all three points against Arsenal they could take the first place. Team from Manchester is in the great run with four consecutive wins in all competitions. In the last three Premier League matches they scored on each game three goals, but their recent away performance is not on the high level. United conceded two goals on each of their last three away matches in all competitions, so they have to improve their defence for this game in order to make good result.
Arsenal vs Manchester United injuries and suspensions
Home team will be without Laurent Koscielny, Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta, while Olivier Giroud is back after his Champions League suspension, but he will probably start from the bench. Visitors have full squad available, except Ander Herrera who is doubtful.

Arsenal is under pressure and they have to go for a win in this game. Both teams have very good attacks, while on the other side their defences are very shaky. I expect both teams to score and that’s my betting prediction for the match between Arsenal vs Manchester.
