THERE are two good-looking games in the Premier League today but neither are easy to call.
Man United-Arsenal has plenty at stake with third place qualifying automatically for the Champions League rather than facing a play-off while Man City will be looking to wrap up second spot at on-form Swansea.
Arsenal’s record at Old Trafford is poor and they haven’t won a league match there since 2006. But United, despite clinching a return to the Champions League, haven’t been playing well lately and are without Wayne Rooney so I wouldn’t have them as short as 13-8 with BetVictor.
The Gunners did win at Old Trafford in the FA Cup last March so maybe they’ve broken the jinx. But they were poor in losing at home to Swansea on Monday so possibly draw could be the shout at 5-2 with boylesports. Arsenal are a biggest 19-10 with 888sport and William Hill.
Danny Welbeck netted in that 2-1 success and the former United star could be fit to return to the line-up tonight. If he does consider him at 13-5 with Paddy Power to net.
There are usually goals when the pair clash and over 2.5 could be the best bet at 20-23 at boylesports.
Swansea have done the double over Man United and Arsenal this season so there’s no reason why they can’t make life difficult for Man City at home.
Win for Southampton and Spurs yesterday have dented the Swans’ chances of Europa League football but finishing eighth would still be a major success for young boss Garry Monk.
City have won their last four and Swansea their last three so it should be a good game and one I believe the home men can avoid defeat in. They are as big as 4-1 to win with Betfred so we can have them not to lose at 16-13 with 888sport.
The big danger to the Swans’ chances will lie with Sergio Aguero who has netted in his last five games. He is 5-6 at Stan James to score and 10-3 at William Hill to break the deadlock.
I expect both teams to score but it pays no bigger than 8-13 at bet365 and William Hill.
Man Utd v Arsenal draw (4pm)
Swansea not to lose (1.30pm)
Aguero to score
(5-6, Stan James)
