Despite being in 15th, the Red Devils have impressed of late, with a four match unbeaten run since their 6-1 hammering against Spurs and will be looking to extend that to five and climb the Premier League table.
Below you’ll find our top picks and predictions for Sunday’s fixture in what should be a great start to November for the English top flight...
When is Manchester United v Arsenal?Arsenal travel to Old Trafford on November 1, with the game kicking off at 4.30pm. As is normal currently, the game will be played behind closed doors with it being shown live on Sky Sports.
- Sunday, November 1, 2020 - 16:30: Manchester United v Arsenal
Who is the Manchester United v Arsenal Favourite?After thumping RB Leipzig, the side top of the Bundesliga currently, Manchester United go into this game as favourites at 21/20 with BetVictor.
The goals have been flowing of late, beating Newcastle 4-1 and PSG 2-1 in an excellent encounter before a drab draw with Chelsea, but they’ll be keen to expose the Arsenal defence and inflict a third straight defeat for the Gunners.
Arsenal can be backed at 5/2 in this game with the bookmaker, with the draw at 13/5.
Probable Line-upsManchester United (4-3-1-2): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay, Pogba; Fernandes; Greenwood, Rashford
Arsenal (4-3-3): Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Gabriel, Tierney; Ceballos, Thomas, Xhaka; Willian, Aubameyang, Saka
Head To HeadThis game has always been a fairly even one and recent fixtures suggest it’ll be similar here. At Old Trafford last season, the clubs played out a 1-1 draw before Arsenal were victorious at the Emirates. United haven’t won in their last three games against Arsenal, with their last win coming in the FA Cup with a 3-1 win in January of last year.
At Old Trafford, you have to go back to April 2018 for the home side’s last win, but you get the impression with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood a real threat in front of goal, this game could be an entirely different prospect.
Our Manchester United v Arsenal PredictionsOf course, that depends entirely on how both teams set up. Against Chelsea, United were very negative, with Solskjaer getting a large portion of criticism from fans. If he does that again, then we could well see a 0-0 draw once more.
That’s priced at 10/1 but we do expect United to try and get on the front foot and a win with BTTS is a much better bet at 11/4 with BetVictor.
Rashford to score anytime is priced at 9/5 which could be a worthwhile bet, while we’d also look to the winning margin market, with Manchester United to win by one goal with Paddy Power pricing that at 11/4.
Arsenal have lost by a single goal to both Leicester and Manchester City of late and we can see a similar outcome here in what should be a thrilling encounter.
