Manchester United vs Arsenal

, KO: 16:30 May 12, 2024, Old Trafford

ARSENAL will be aiming to extend their winning run to five matches in the Premier League when they meet Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Mikel Arteta's men are pushing champions Man City all the way in their pursuit of a first top-flight crown since 2004.

Last weekend, the Gunners threw down the gauntlet to their title rivals by brushing aside Bournemouth 3-0 at the Emirates.

With Pep Guardiola's side getting the Premier League action underway this weekend when they face Fulham on Saturday lunchtime, Arsenal will look to fulfil their end of the bargain by banking three points at Old Trafford.

Things reached a new low on Monday night for the Red Devils, as they were ruthlessly cut apart in a 4-0 pasting from Crystal Palace, much to the delight of our man Mark Walker.

As such, Erik ten Hag may feel like a dead man walking as he leads his eighth-placed side into their penultimate home game of the Premier League season.

How the bookies view it: Man United set for more misery

Despite avoiding defeat in seven of their last eight Premier League games, Manchester United are massive 6/1 underdogs (Bet 365) while the draw is also deemed unlikely at 9/2 (Bet 365).

Arsenal are the shortest price they have ever been to triumph at Old Trafford, with an away win trading at just 2/5 (Bet 365).

Head to head: Theatre of Broken Dreams for Arsenal?

Arsenal have taken top honours at Old Trafford just once since 2006, with that solitary success coming back in 2020 in front of no supporters. It's been a different story at the Emirates though, where the Gunners have won the last two meetings, running out 3-2 victors in this season's reverse fixture.

Man United claimed a 3-1 victory in last season's corresponding fixture thanks to a second-half brace from Marcus Rashford.

Players to watch: Rice to rise to the occasion

Declan Rice has been a standout performer for Arsenal this season. After making the net bulge against Bournemouth last weekend, the England international is as big as 4/1 on Bet 365 to repeat the trick at Old Trafford.

Man United hope to have Bruno Fernandes back in the starting line-up on Sunday and the Portuguese playmaker holds plenty of appeal to register a shot on target at even-money on Bet 365.

Predicted lineups

Along with the aforementioned Bruno Fernandes, the likes of Lisandro Martinez, Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay are all back in contention for Manchester United this weekend.

Arsenal should have a clean bill of health for the trip north, with the only slight doubt being Jurrien Timber.

Man United Onana; Dalot, Casemiro, Evans, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund

Arsenal:Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Partey, Rice; Saka, Havertz, Trossard

Anything else catch the eye? United backed into a corner

Man United's travails have been well documented this term but they still look worth backing to earn at least four corners on Sunday at 10/11 on Bet 365.

The Red Devils are averaging 5.91 corners per-game in the Premier League this season, a tally that increases to a noteworthy 7.94 when operating at their Manchester base.

Erik ten Hag's side comfortably cleared the 4+ flag-kick line in both of their top-flight home fixtures with Man City and Liverpool earlier this season, suggesting they capable of following suit this weekend.

What's more, if the match plays out to the bookmakers' expectations, then United should find themselves chasing the game, which would only increase the likelihood of them racking up a few corners.

This match between Manchester United and Arsenal will be played on May 12, 2024 and kick off at 16:30. Check below for our tipsters best Manchester United vs Arsenal prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
