  • Thursday, December 2, 2020 - 20:30: Manchester United v Arsenal

Manchester United v Arsenal Betting Preview 

Manchester United have won just one of their last eight Premier League games and are without a victory in each of their last three. They sit eighth with 18 points to their name - three places and five points worse off than their upcoming opponents. Anyway, the Red Devils were able to held league leaders Chelsea to a 1-1 draw on Sunday. Michael Carrick will stay in charge for the Arsenal clash as newly-appointed interim manager Ralf Rangnick’s arrival has been slightly delayed because his work permit has not been sorted in time for him to take the reins on Thursday. As to direct encounters, Manchester UTD are winless in their last six Premier League meetings with Arsenal and lost 1-0 this corresponding fixture last season.

Despite a slow start to the campaign, Arsenal moved into fifth on points after their 2-0 win over Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium. The Gunners bounced back quickly from the hammering that they had received from Liverpool a week before and have won four of its last five league matches. Furthermore, Mikel Arteta's men have kept four clean sheets in their previous five matches in all competitions. The Gunners are unbeaten in six against the Red Devils and have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three meetings with Manchester United in all competitions.

Probable Line-ups

Manchester United (4-3-1-2): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Telles; Matic, Fred, McTominay; Fernandes; Sancho, Ronaldo

Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani and Raphael Varane make up a trio of absentees for the hosts, while Luke Shaw is a major doubt due to a head injury. Centre-back Harry Maguire returns from suspension and will replace Eric Bailly at the heart of the backline alongside Victor Lindelof. After being benched at Stamford Bridge last time out, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to lead the line. Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho are in contention to partner the Portuguese up front, with Bruno Fernandes finally playing as number ten. The likes of Nemanja Matic, Fred and Scott McTominay will start in the middle of the park, with Donny Van De Beek providing a further option.

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Partey, Lokonga; Martinelli, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang

Granit Xhaka and Sead Kolasinac are the only two Arsenal players definitely ruled out of the trip to Old Trafford. Bukayo Saka may also miss Thursday's game, with Nicolas Pepe and goalscoring substitute Gabriel Martinelli may tussle for the vacated right-wing spot. Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith-Rowe will complete the offensive trio behind Pierre Emerick Aubameyan, with Thomas Partey and Sambi Lokonga anchoring the midfield as usual. No changes are expected at the back, where Nuno Tavares and Takehiro Tomiyasu will flank the centre back duo Ben White and Gabriel.

Best Odds

Manchester are favourites at 11/10 with Betfred despite a poor run of form. The draw is backable at 11/4 with Bet365 while Arsenal to win is priced a 11/4 with Betfair.

Our Manchester United v Arsenal Predictions  

Midweek contests are difficult to handicap due to lineup shuffling and the lack of rest between fixtures. Anyway, our tipsters have recorded many big wins in midwee in recent times.

Man UTD have failed to keep a clean sheet in their previous 14 home games in all competitions but we do not expect an high scoring affair on Thursday. A low scoring draw (0-0 or 1-1) is the most likely outcome. The most recent meeting between the pair finished goalless in January and history could repeat itself. Hence, we would avoid to bet on goalscorers. Better to have a punt on carded players, where McTominay and Lokonga's odds can't be ignored.
