Don’t Bet Against Arsenal at Home
Arsenal dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with 10-man Fulham and, no doubt, the Gunners are eager to return to winning ways as soon as possible. The Gunners almost lost at home to Fulham for the first time in over a decade. Manager Mikel Arteta’s tinkering almost cost them the game so he will be wary not to make too many random changes to his starting lineup when the Red Devils come knocking.
Speaking after the draw with Fulham, the Spanish manager said that his side was 10 times better than they were at this stage last season. He was unhappy with the draw but also confident that changes could occur in the team’s game as the league progresses.
Important striker Eddie Nketiah should be recalled to the starting lineup while Jurrien Timber, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Folarin Balogun and Mohamed Elneny all remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Despite the additions of David Raya, Declan Rice, Kai Havertz and Timber, the squad still looks like they could use a few more signings. Folarin Balogun and Kieran Tierney have been moved on to AS Monaco and Real Sociedad, respectively, giving Arsenal space for additions.
Arteta’s defensive tactics will have to be top-notch here in order not to give many chances to the Red Devils. The Gunners will have the talents of Gabriel Jesus to work with, which also increases the goal threat that the Gunners will bring to the game, so we will definitely include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Injuries Dim Win Chances of Man U
The Red Devils, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Tottenham. Ten Hag praised his team for overcoming a horror start to beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 in an Old Trafford thriller in the Premier League last weekend.
Defender Raphael Varane will be out for several weeks with an unspecified injury so he will probably return after the international break. Ten Hag is playing with a severely depleted squad and is making the most with what he has, so if you’re betting online, you shouldn’t back Man United here.
Luke Shaw is out for a couple of months thanks to an unfortunate injury on Matchday 2 and the club is believed to be lining up a move for Marc Cucurella to cover for the English left back whose return date is unknown.
Anthony Martial will keep his place as the starting striker while Marcus Rashford will return to his favored role on the left side of the attack while Diogo Dalot will fill in at left back once again.
Home Venue Key in Head-to-Head Series
Last season the two teams shared the points with both winning in front of their fans. The hosts managed to win each of the previous four head-to-heads between the two sides and both teams found the back of the net on each occasion. We’ve seen at least four goals on the scoresheet in each of the last four mutual encounters.
The Gunners were the third-best home team last season, winning 14 in 19 home EPL fixtures, while the Red Devils underperformed on the road by conceding 33 goals in 19 games.

The hosts enter this clash as favorites being priced at -130 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Premier League odds while the goal line is set at three.
Marcus Rashford is yet to score this season, making the threat even bigger for the Gunners. Arteta will have Jesus back from injury and he loves finding the back of the net against Man United.
