Arsenal: Back to Winning Ways
After three defeats in a row, Arsenal bounced back in style pulling off the upset in the 4-2 victory against third-placed Chelsea. Finally, rediscovering their magic touch against a Chelsea side who were very poor at the back, means that the fourth spot is still in Arsenal’s hands with six games remaining until the end of the season.
Considering the lack of new additions in the January transfer window, and the huge injury issues, – this made it seem to prove costly for the Gunners in their quest for a top-four finish. The defeats to Crystal Palace, Southampton, and Brighton affected them mentally but somehow produced their best performance against Chelsea and they have all the motivation needed to take advantage of United’s struggles and continue their direct fight with Tottenham for the last UCL spot.
Arsenal and Tottenham are spot on 57 points with the two North London rivals facing each other on May 12. Before then, they both play three times. The clash against the Red Devils comes at the right moment for the Gunners. There is one club with some real momentum behind them, and another that was embarrassed by Liverpool in the latest league fixtures of a long line of horrendous performances.
Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney remain sidelined for the long-term, but Arteta has no fresh concerns to contend with following Wednesday’s victory. Arsenal could leapfrog Spurs in fourth, adding pressure on them, with their city rivals playing later that evening. There’s huge value on the host so we will add them to our soccer picks and parlays.
Man United: New Manager
Humiliated at Anfield with a performance that has been widely referred to as shameful, the Red Devils look like they don’t want to be on the pitch. Paul Pogba was forced off after only 10 minutes at Anfield, where United was beaten 4-0 by rivals, Liverpool. Pogba joins a growing list of injured players with Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Fred, and Edinson Cavani all not fit to play against Arsenal.
Cristiano Ronaldo missed the match due to compassionate leave but he is back in the squad and will probably start against the Gunners. Scott McTominay, who has missed the last few games with a foot problem, will hopefully also make the squad but United’s lack of confidence, quality, spirit, and even guidance makes them a team of individuals stumbling their way to the final day of the season.
A defeat at the Emirates would leave them six points adrift of their North London rivals having played a game more. Rangnick’s side is still waiting for its first Premier League clean sheet on the road in 2022. That’s how bad they are and we don’t expect them to improve soon so if you’re betting online it’s time to jump on United’s fading train.
The expected return of Ronaldo to the frontline should at least give Man United that extra attacking value, so they will probably find the back of the net but their defensive issues will once again be the key to this fixture. The Red Devils’ chances of ending such a miserable away losing streak are seemingly rather slim at the Emirates.
Manchester United on Thursday announced the appointment of Erik ten Hag as its new full-time manager. The Dutchman, who has been the manager at Ajax Amsterdam since 2017, will take over from interim manager Ralph Rangnick at the end of the season.
Arsenal vs Man United Head-to-Head
Despite suffering back-to-back home defeats to Liverpool and Brighton, Arsenal’s tally of 32 points on home soil is the third-best record in the top-flight league. The Red Devils managed to win the reverse fixture beating Arsenal 3-2 on home soil but the Gunners have a strong home record against United. They are unbeaten in their previous three mutual encounters against their opponents winning twice in the process and they kept a clean sheet in each of the three fixtures. United lost their last three away games conceding nine and scoring just one goal in the process.
