Top four the target Gunners ahead of United visit
Arsenal entertain Manchester United in the early Premier League kick off on Saturday and a win would see them move ahead of Spurs in fourth.
The Gunners ended a three-game losing streak with an impressive 4-2 win at Chelsea on Wednesday, and as Tottenham are involved in the late game on Saturday Arsenal have a chance to leapfrog them for at least a few hours.
The hosts remain without injured pair Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney, while Paul Pogba has been added to the United injury list after sustaining a calf injury in the 4-0 midweek loss to Liverpool and it remains to be seen as to whether or not Cristiano Ronaldo will return.
Gunners good value for victory
Arsenal’s win over Chelsea should have provided them with a much-needed confidence boost and now looks a good time to play a United outfit who will still be licking their wounds after a humbling at the hands of Liverpool.
The Gunners may have lost three games prior to their win at Stamford Bridge but they created plenty of chances in those defeats, and were arguably unlucky not to get anything out of their games against Brighton and Southampton.
United have just one win in their last five (D1, L3) and that success came in the shape of a 3-2 win over bottom club Norwich. The Old Trafford side have lost each of their last three away from home, conceding seven goals and scoring just once themselves. United have just confirmed the appointment of Erik ten Hag as their new manager from the end of this season and that does add an element of uncertainty to proceedings as we may see a reaction from their players, but going on current form and performances a win for Arsenal still looks the best option.
Arsenal have won three of their last five at home, and can boost their Champions League bid with a win on Saturday.
Goals on the cards at the Emirates
United won the reverse fixture 3-2 and we could be in line for a few goals when these sides renew their rivalry on Saturday, with a 3-1 win for Arsenal my correct score selection.
United have conceded eight goals across their last four games and Arsenal’s attack clicked into gear against Chelsea. The Gunners have only managed one clean sheet in their last five at home though so the visitors can at least get on the scoresheet.
Arsenal predicted lineup: Ramsdale, White, Holding, Gabriel, Tavares, Xhaka, Elneny, Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Nketiah
Manchester United predicted lineup: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Telles, Matic, McTominay, Elanga, Fernandes, Sancho, Ronaldo
