Manchester United vs Arsenal

, KO: 16:30 Nov 1, 2020, Old Trafford

MANCHESTER UNITED will be hoping to carry their Champions League form into domestic battle as they face Arsenal in a crunch clash for their Premier League aspirations.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men romped to a 5-0 win over RB Leipzig in midweek as they followed up their impressive 2-1 win at PSG in the European opener.

But while the Red Devils haven't put a foot wrong in continental action the same can't be said of their form domestically, picking up only seven points from their first five matches.

Two were spilled in their last home game against Chelsea, with a dreary 0-0 stalemate ruining my tips in a fixture that looked set to deliver a few goals.

It seemed like Solskjaer wanted to avoid defeat rather than win but he can't take the same approach when Arsenal come calling for his 100th game in charge.

Fans got their wish of seeing Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek start in midfield against Leipzig and he must surely have to stick with those forward-thinking players here.

After starting with back-to-back wins, Arsenal have suffered a slump in the league, collecting just three points from their last four games.

But Mikel Arteta's men have generally performed well against the bigger teams in the league and will be confident of getting back on track at Old Trafford.

How the bookies view it

Manchester United are 27/25 favourites off the back of their midweek heroics with the Gunners as big as 30/11 at VBet. The draw pays 11/4 at Unibet and that shouldn't be ruled out as three of their last four meetings in Manchester have ended level.

Recent head to head

Arsenal had the edge in this fixture last term, winning 2-0 at the Emirates after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford (below). But their record at the Theatre of Dreams hasn't been great and you have to go back to 2015 for their last win there.

Players to watch

With Anthony Martial serving the final game of a three-match domestic ban, I'm going to stick with Marcus Rashford (below) for a United goal after he came off the bench to grab a hat-trick against Leipzig.

The England man's confidence will be soaring and he's a generous 9/5 with 888Sport for anytime scorer.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbed Arsenal's leveller at Old Trafford last season and is 8/5 with 888Sport to grab another goal here.

Anything else catch the eye?

I've backed both teams to score in United's last two games only to end up with a bloody nose each time but that bet has come up in the last seven meetings of these sides at Old Trafford. That probably explains why the best price for both teams to score in this one is a measly 13/20 at Betway. If you double it with both sides winning over two corners the odds increase to 17/20 at William Hill.

These games can be a bit heated at times so I like the look of the evens on offer at William Hill for each side to collect over one card. That has come up in four of the last five meetings. Granit Xhaka is always worth backing for a card and that pays 19/10 with Unibet here.

The same firm are offering 6/5 on Rashford and Bruno Fernandes having over 3.5 shots on target combined and that could be worth a punt as both players like to have a pop at goal.

Betfred price a goal from outside the area at 11/8 and that's another good option with so many talented players on show.
