Arsenal vs Manchester United – Betting Preview
Arsenal will be licking their chops at the potential to snare not just another huge three points in the championship push, but also to exact retribution for the 3-1 setback they suffered back in September, which was their sole league loss so far this season!
Despite the fact that both of these clubs are in the thick of the championship race, Arsenal is slightly the favourite on the moneyline as a result of United’s recent blunder against Crystal Palace and the absence of Casemiro due to suspension.
Goals are anticipated, as is frequently the case in games featuring two of the best club clubs. Despite only allowing 14 goals overall in their 18 Premier League games this season, Arsenal has the second-best defensive record in the Premier League.
For this crucial game, Arsenal’s roster is almost entirely healthy. Gabriel Jesus, who is still recovering from a knee injury sustained at the World Cup, is the only noticeable absence.
Eddie Nketiah has completed the task in his place by acting out his part and allowing others take centre stage around him. Mikel Arteta’s only further concerns are Mohamed Elneny and Reiss Nelson, whose recent injuries are still being evaluated.
Man United Preview
Since they would be playing the league leaders on the road with a chance to enter the title race, Manchester United had this game highlighted on their calendar for weeks.
Up until the last obstacle, everything appeared to be headed for a top-tier showdown, but they faltered. After a dismal stalemate and the loss of their most important midfielder in the process, the Red Devils will now have to play the Gunners with their prospects of winning the league on the line.
On Wednesday, a last-second equaliser by Crystal Palace forced United to split the points, and Casemiro received a yellow card as a result.
Although the Brazilian midfielder’s absence will be felt, manager Erik ten Hag remained upbeat following the game and predicted that the Red Devils will steal a second victory over Arsenal this year.
1×2 Betting Odds
If not for the heroics of David de Gea and Aaron Wan-Bissaka at crucial moments, Manchester United may have lost against Crystal Palace. The team’s offence against the Eagles was sporadic at best.
Arsenal could try to stretch the game out early before seizing any opportunities later in the game because the Red Devils were particularly inferior after the interval.
Arsenal play Man United and the title race is on the line?! We have heard that before!
Such is the importance of this clash at the Emirates in 2023 as it was 20 years ago!
And in this crucial clash of the giants, it is the home side, Arsenal, the market favourite to win @ 1.91.
Manchester United dropped points against Palace, and they will travel to the Emirates without having Casemiro in their line up! They are the underdogs in this @ 4.30.
The possibility of stalemate and points dropped, which is something that both teams would not want, stands @ 4.10.
Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.74.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.26.
