Manchester United vs Arsenal: Betting Preview

Manchester United vs Arsenal Match Preview

Manchester United and Arsenal meet in the penultimate matchweek of the Premier League 2023/24 season. The Gunners have no room for error in the title fight, while the Red Devils still need points to secure a European spot next season.

Manchester United’s humiliating 4-0 defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend seriously compromised their chances of European football next season. Currently tied with Chelsea on points, but behind due to goal difference they are out of the top seven. Two extremely difficult home games against Arsenal and Newcastle come before travelling to face Brighton, which seems to be too big of an ask for this team.

It is a professional sport, and Manchester United needs the points for a top seven finish. However, how would the fans feel knowing a win on Sunday would practically give their city rivals, Manchester City, their fourth consecutive Premier League title, a feat they could never achieve themselves even during their most glorious periods?

This Arsenal team has been an improved version of last season’s title contender. The Gunners are already on 83 points with two remaining games, whereas last season they finished on 84, could be the type of margins that make them end up on top this season. The biggest improvement has come in the last couple of games. After a loss at home against Aston Villa that seemed reminiscent of last year’s fallout, the team got back to its best and this time will go on to fight until the last day of the season.

The Gunners may temporarily lose the lead of the Premier League this Saturday if Manchester City manages to beat Fulham. Mikel Arteta’s side know there is no point in thinking about other results. They can only focus on themselves, win their final two games, and hope the juggernaut Pep Guardiola created at City drops at least a point in one of their three remaining games.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction

Arsenal win at 1.40

The last run of games suggests this Arsenal team will not drop any points and will force Manchester City to do the same if they want to beat them. However, Old Trafford has been a nightmare for Arsenal in the last couple of years. They have only managed to get one win in their last 16 Premier League visits, 1-0 in November 2020 with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring the winner.

The Red Devils have opened the scoring in four of their last five games against the Gunners. If that were to repeat itself, it would provide even more to the spectacle with Arsenal needing to overcome a deficit to keep their title charge alive.
