Last season, the match at Old Trafford ended in a 1-1 draw. Scott McTominay scored for the “Red Devils” and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored for the “Gunners.” Then, at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal won 2-0 thanks to Nicolas Pepe and Sokratis Papastathopoulos goals. Arsenal’s last victory at Old Trafford was in the 2006-2007 season. They won 1-0 with a goal from Emmanuel Adebayor.
The “Gunners” have gone four consecutive matches without losing to Manchester United (2-2-0).
Moneyline: Manchester United +105 | Arsenal +240| Draw +275
Neither Manchester United nor Arsenal are sitting at the top of the league. Arsenal sits in 11th with 9 points (five less than first place) and Manchester United sits 15th with 7 points. Nevertheless, games against one of the “Big Six” (Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United) are a totally different competition and a victory here can boost the winner up.
Manchester United comes off a huge victory (5-0) against RB Leipzig in the Champions League. Marcus Rashford scored a hat trick. In the Premier League, they come from a 2-2 draw against Chelsea. The “Red Devils”’ defense has allowed two goals in their last four matches (all competitions).
Arsenal played Dundalk at home for the Europa League. They won 3-0 with goals from Eddie Nlketiah, Joe Willowck and Nicolas Pepe.
In the Premier League, they come from two consecutive losses. First against Manchester City (1-0) on the road and then against Leicester City (0-1) at home.
The “Gunners” have scored one goal in their last three domestic games.
Regarding the English Premier League, Manchester United has a 2-1-2 record. They have scored 9 goals and allowed 12. Surprisingly, they haven’t won at Old Trafford. They lost 3-1 against Crystal Palace and 6-1 against Tottenham. Bruno Fernandes is Manchester United’s top scorer with three goals.
Arsenal owns a 3-0-3 record. They have scored 8 goals and allowed 7. The “Gunners” have a 1-0-2 record on the road. They beat Fulham (0-3) and lost to Liverpool (3-1) and Manchester City (1-0). Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Arsenal’s top scorer with three goals. A fun fact not so fun is that Hector Bellerin has accumulated three yellow cards (most in the league).
Discarded Players and Projected Line-ups
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United’s coach, can’t count on Anthony Martial due to suspension. Martial was sent off for violent conduct in the defeat to Tottenham earlier this month. Eric Bailly, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones are all injured. They already missed the game against Chelsea and remain questionable for next Sunday. Their projected lineup is David De Gea, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Fred, Juan Mata, Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford.
Arsenal’s best players got some rest because Mikel Arteta (coach) placed a ‘side B’ squad against Dundalk. Some of the discarded players are Calum Chambers, Rob Holding and Gabriel Martinelli due to injury; Pablo Mari is suspended. The “Gunners” predicted lineup is Bernd Leno, Kieran Tierney, Gabriel Magalhaes, Shkodran Mustafi, Hector Bellerin, Granit Xhaka, Dani Ceballos, Thomas Partey, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and William.
Pick: Manchester United to win.
Over/Under 2½ goals: Manchester United (2-1-2) | Arsenal (3-0-3)
Pick: Over 2½ goals
Final Score: Manchester United 2 – Arsenal 1
