Joe Cole makes Arsenal v Man Utd prediction claiming one side is “punching above their weight”

Joe Cole has predicted that Arsenal will beat Manchester United when both teams meet in the Premier League this evening.

The Gunners have been eliminated from the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup. They have to win the Europa League or finish in the top six if they want to play European football next season.

This second half of the season is an important one for them as they look to get back in the European places, but United is on top form right now.

The Red Devils were top of the Premier League table before they were beaten by Sheffield United in their last league game.

That was a home game, and they have lost several of those this season. However, their away form has been solid with eight wins and two draws from 10 matches.

They will want to improve on that against the Gunners, but Cole thinks they have overachieved, and he backs Arsenal to be the victorious side when both teams meet.

Cole told as reported by Metro Sports: ‘I’m going to go with Arsenal. 

‘I love what Ole’s done at Manchester United, I think he’s doing a good job but I do think they’re slightly punching above their weight for where they are. 

‘A game like this will suit Arsenal. It will be a little bit more open so I’m going to back Arsenal. 

‘I don’t think United will win.’

    I am beginning to be scared now because this confidence is becoming too much for me. I prefer to be underdog

      Adega, What any pundit thinks will make zerr difference to how the game will pan out. Whay you are outlining is merely you own personal superstition, sadly!

      I too have supperstitions about football but the trick is to recognise that mere superstitions are ALL they are and that all of them have absolutely NO bearing on the game whatsoever.


      That is using your head properly and not letting yourself be ruled by irrelevant nonsense.

    I think the last two matches before today’s, is revealing that Man Utd is always sitting on their back foot(feet) whenever they play Gunners.
    They play with fear and too much caution. But to be honest, the two teams performance fall short of what is expected.
