      Manchester United vs Arsenal Predictions

      Manchester United managed to overcome a first leg deficit in the Europa League in style as they hammered Midtjylland 5-1 at Old Trafford to seal their place in the next round. Now they have a European tie with Liverpool to look forward to, as well as a hosting of West Ham in the FA Cup, so all is not lost for their faltering season yet. But the Old Trafford outfits’ future in next seasons Champions League is looking bleak with them in 5th position in the Premier League, six points behind 4th placed Manchester City. This makes this meeting with their old foes even more crucial, because if they win they can slash the gap between them and Man City to three points.

      Arsenal know that this is a crucial fixture as well though, as a win for them could see them move to the top of the Premier League ahead of Leicester and Spurs. Doing so would be a huge boost to their confidence, especially after a 2-0 defeat to Barcelona at the Emirates all but sealed their exit from the Champions League. It would take a miracle to overturn that deficit at the Nou Camp.

      Reasons for Betting Tips

      Both Manchester United and Arsenal will be gunning for the win on Sunday, as they both know that a draw isn’t much use to them. Manchester United fans saw their team perform exceptionally well against Midtjylland on Thursday as Memphis and debutant Marcus Rashford stole the limelight in a 5-1 win. This took their goals tally to 17 goals in their last seven outings in all competitions, so despite their injury list they should be confident in their ability to score for the first time this season.

      Arsenal will be hoping for a repeat performance of their 3-0 win over Man United earlier in the season. It was one of the best performances of the season from Arsenal and showed just how good they can be when it goes their way. Their 2-0 defeat to Barcelona is a disappointment, but it won’t have been wholly unexpected for them, and they actually managed to hold their own for the majority of the match. The visitors have won three of their last six games in all competitions and blew the Premier League title race wide open when they beat Leicester last time out in the league.

      Both teams’ impressive attacking record and desire to win this match makes odds of 19/20 for Both Teams to Score look very good value, and I think the confidence the thrashing of Midtjylland will have brought Manchester United will help them to a much needed victory.
