Manchester United vs Arsenal Preview

Manchester United vs Arsenal

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 5th December 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Arsenal will be looking to become the latest team to exploit Manchester United’s poor home form as they head to Old Trafford for this game.

The Red Devils have struggled to get results at home this season with some of the highlights of their home form including a 3-0 loss against Tottenham, a Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Derby County and going more than 200 minutes without scoring a goal in the Champions League at home.

United have started changing things a little with back to back clean sheets for De Gea, but they failed to beat struggling Southampton in their last league game as they played out a 2-2 draw against the Saints.

Arsenal are a team in form and their 4-2 win over Tottenham at the weekend highlights just how good they have become under Unai Emery.

The Gunners haven’t lost an away game since August when Marcos Alonso scored a late winner for Chelsea.

The last time Arsenal played here, they were beaten 2-1 however this Unai Emery team are playing with so much confidence and they will believe that they can get the points against Jose Mourinho’s men here.

Arsenal have won one and lost two of their last four meetings with Manchester United and it has been more than 11 games since they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in a Premier League game.

Despite Manchester United’s struggles, bookmakers have priced them up as favourites to get the job done at home however the odds are extremely close and Arsenal will undoubtedly have their supporters.

Goal markets suggest this will be a lively affair as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is favourite with bookies to score the first goal closely followed by Alexandre Lacazette and Romelu Lukaku.
