Premier League: Manchester United vs Arsenal

Manchester United vs Arsenal Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening derby match of Round 12 in Premier League, Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester United vs Arsenal.


Manchester United started this season in Premier League very poor and after 11 rounds they are standing at the 6th position, with 8 points less than leader Liverpool. After four league games without win, home side had finally managed to take all three points in the previous round when they beat Swansea 1-3. Good news for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is that Zlatan Ibrahimovic woke up and after long time scored two goals in the last round. Last season the match between Manchester United vs Arsenal at Old Trafford was finished 3-2, when Rashford hit the net two times and became one of the most important players for home side. Manchester United made many changes in team, they brought new manager and three important players, but their results are not great. There are many matches left until the end of the season and home team still have a chance to become one of the favorites to win the title, but they have to improve their performance and start collecting points. The match against Arsenal is very important for them and they have to stay unbeaten and try to take all three points.

Arsenal started this season in Premier League very good and they are currently standing at the 4th position with only two points less than leader. They lost only once this season in all competitions and it was the defeat against Liverpool in the first round. After that visitors started to play much better and they are unbeaten in the last 16 games in all competitions. Arsenal have very good attack, but their defence is not on the high level – they conceded 11 goals on 11 league matches this season (average 1 goal per match). Their records against Manchester United away is very poor. Arsenal failed to beat home side at Old Trafford since 2006 and they will be fully motivated to break that unpleasant tradition.

Team News

Home side miss Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Fellaini and Rooney due to injury, while Ibrahimovic is suspended. On the other side, visitors will be without Bellerin, Mertesacker,Cazorla, Welback and Lucas Perez.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Predicted Lineups

Manchester United: de Gea, Darmian, Blind, Rojo, Shaw, Pogba, Carrick, Herrera, Mata, Rashford, Lingard.
Arsenal: Cech, Jenkinson, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Coquelin, Walcott, Ozil, Iwobi, Sanchez.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction

Both teams will be fully motivated to win this game, so I expect more than interesting match between Manchester United vs Arsenal. Visitors are playing much better this season than their opponent, but home side have to start winning, so I believe that they can take at least one point upfront their supporters.
