What are the Latest Odds?
The bookmakers have Arsenal as slight favourites for this one at 7/5. Manchester United have been priced around the 2/1 mark, with the draw at 5/2. Let’s not forget that United came here in the FA Cup and won 3-1 in January, so the 2/1 on offer looks appealing. Especially when you consider the confidence in the camp at the moment.
Not only did they beat Arsenal 3-1 in the FA Cup recently, this exact fixture last season also ended 3-1 to the away side. Fancy the same again? 22/1. You’re welcome.
It’s hard to choose a winner as you never know which Arsenal are going to turn up. They could completely fold on Sunday and lose two or three nil. On the other hand, Ozil could turn into Messi and they could thump United.
You have to go way back to February 2014 to find the last goalless draw between these two sides. There are always goals in this fixture. Since that 0-0 draw, they’ve met 11 times and there have been 35 goals scored. That’s an average of just over three per game. Over 2.5 goals, as a result of this, is understandably on the short side at odds of 4/6. If you’re feeling brave, consider over 3.5 goals at 13/8.
It’s nine away wins in a row for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his Manchester United side. Ten is possible, but only Manchester City have won more points at home this season than Arsenal. If you think United can make it 10, rather than back them in the Match Result market, the 11/10 on them in the Draw No Bet market looks a safer bet. If it ends in a draw, you’ll get your stake refunded.
This fixture is known for goals, so it’s only fair that we let you know the odds in the goalscorer markets. Here are the first goalscorer and anytime goalscorer odds for the popular picks this weekend. First goalscorer odds first.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 10/3 & 13/10
Alexandre Lacazette – 5/1 & 8/5
Aaron Ramsey – 9/1 & 16/5
Romelu Lukaku – 7/1 & 2/1
Marcus Rashford – 13/2 & 21/10
Paul Pogba – 7/1 & 12/5
Team News – Injuries and Suspensions
Lucas Torreira's three-match ban was upheld in midweek after an appeal, so he'll definitely be missing for the Gunners. Matteo Guendouzi may get the nod alongside Xhaka, but a lot of Arsenal fans were fuming with him against Rennes after he failed to track back quick enough for their third.
Pace needs to be considered by Unai Emery too, which could see Shkodran Mustafi dropped for Ainsley Maitland-Niles at right-back.
Manchester United will have, more or less, the same set of players available for the Arsenal game as they did in Paris, with only one minor change. Paul Pogba can play, whereas Eric Bailly is a major doubt with a knock. One other player that might squeeze his way into the squad is Anthony Martial. He didn’t travel to France in midweek to give himself the best possibility of getting back fit for Sunday’s match.
Arsenal Predicted XI: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokrates, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Ramsey, Iwobi, Aubameyang, Lacazette
Manchester United Predicted XI: De Gea, Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Pogba, Pereira, Rashford, Lukaku
1-1. I think it’ll be an entertaining game with plenty of chances. It will need something special to beat Leno and De Gea, but both sides are capable of producing the goods on their day. Arsenal have only ever lost twice at home in a season to the same opponents – Forest in 1988 and Villa in 1994. The fans will expect a reaction after the Rennes defeat, so I can’t see anything but a decent performance from Arsenal. Unai Emery won’t allow it. However, the performance won’t be enough to beat United.
Both teams to score looks the obvious bet at 8/15, but that’s too short for my liking. The draw at 5/2 looks the one to go for at decent odds of 5/2.
*existing customers can enjoy 5/1, but new customers' bets will be enhanced to 10/1
