The big Premier League game this week is taking place Monday evening at Old Trafford when Manchester United welcome Arsenal and the pundits are already giving their predictions.
BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson is taking on former Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas and is predicting that honours will even with the scoreline being 1-1.
Former Man Utd forward Michael Owen, who never gives a scoreline, agrees with former Liverpool defender Lawrenson that the game will end up as a draw.
Former Gunner Charlie Nicholas is going for an Arsenal win with 2-1 his predicted score and that takes us to the most unreliable supercomputer in history.
The lovable BT Sports so-called Super Computer, fresh from predicting an Arsenal 6-1 win over Aston Villa, has gone with the more reasonable 2-1 win for Arsenal
So, we have two going for a draw and two going for an Arsenal win, in better words, none of them believes that United will beat the Gunners on their own turf.
I wonder what the opinion would have been if Arsenal had tripped up against Nottingham Forest midweek or not managed the comeback against Aston Villa last weekend. Football really is small margins.
I have to admit that I do agree with the predictions above, that United will not win the game and that Arsenal will leave Manchester with some form of a positive result, be it a draw or win.
The difference could well come down to which defence has the better game and the advantage has to be with Arsenal following the return from injury of Rob Holding, Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin.
And of course, United hardly have a strike force.
