Man United v Arsenal build-up and score prediction

Arsenal will make the trip to Manchester today to take on United at Old Trafford, with neither carrying the best form into the tie.

The hosts are yet to secure a win in any of their three Premier League home matches this term, losing twice and drawing the third, but have enjoyed two crucial wins in the Champions League against RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks.

Arsenal also have a 100% record in Europe so far this season, with wins over Dundalk and Rapid Vienna, but arrive at Old Trafford on the back of consecutive league losses.

You could argue that we didn’t deserve to lose to either Man City or Leicester, but that doesn’t change the fact that we picked up zero points, but all of this counts for very little once we step foot on the field.

Mikel Arteta will be well aware of the threat that they are up against today, and could well become the first manager since Herbert Chapman in 1926 to win his first two encounters with Manchester United today.

It will be interesting to see how the Spaniard lines up the team after switching to a 4-3-3 formation last weekend.

As much as I try to be confident of our side’s chances of a win, I’m struggling to see either side fully commit to chase a win, and I can see both sides cancelling each other out.

Both teams appear to have pressure on them to get a result, and while I hope I’m wrong and Arsenal can leave with all three points, I feel like a 0-0 stalemate is on the cards.

What are your predictions for today’s clash?

    I believe in the 4-3-3 formation used the last premier league match against Leicester.the Middle three of ceballos xhaka and Party is great but they still have a lot to do in understanding each other and helping out the attack.I think Arteta will still go for the same formation and I hope this time will be a different result.I’m expecting an entertaining game and I believe could get all three points.go gunners go

      ….👍🏽. Leno may not be that horrible, afterall.

        Martinez conceding 7 goals in 2 games.

          Phenom you still don’t get it, it’s not about how many goals a keeper concede, it’s about how many the keeper should have stopped or how many mistakes the keeper makes, I looked at all those 4 goals and I even Neur won’t stop any especially those 2 beautiful free kicks. De Gea is arguably the best keeper in the league and he can call concede 4 or 5 in a match

          1. Maxis says:

            Can we use that same logic for strikers?

  6. RW1 says:

    optimistically 2 2 … but if xhaka`s name is in the starting 11 a win to them by a couple of goals ..

    I just do not see Uniteds plethora of attcking talents failing to score and I think IF WE ARE TO WIN WE WILL NEED TO SCORE THREE.

    I do see a more open game than some expect but after a cautious start. This is not an easy game to predict, so I will not be betting on it, save on the long term change in Prem markets, where the REAL profits are made.
