Manchester United Form

Manchester United have had a difficult week yet again, and while they have recorded three wins out of four, it is the performance levels that have been way below par.

In their last league game against West Ham United, they were ripped apart at the London Stadium. They were inept in the final third, and suspect at the back.

The Hammers didn’t have to work very hard to get the win, and that was the most disappointing aspect for the Red Devils.

They got back to winning ways in the League Cup on Wednesday evening, but it was a close call against minnow opposition. Rochdale came to Old Trafford hoping for a positive display. They would never have imagined of taking the Red Devils to a penalty shootout.

Mason Greenwood had put United ahead with his second goal in three games, while Rochdale equalised in the final ten minutes.

Fortunately, United were able to scrape through with a penalty shootout win, but the questions over the quality of this United side were overpowering.

Arsenal Form

The Gunners meanwhile have also been guilty of just doing enough to get by. Their poor run of form has stemmed from their loss at Liverpool on the third weekend of the season, with the notable 2-2 draw against Watford a recent example of the troubles they have.

They led through two Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goals before being pegged back in the final ten minutes. They then hosted Aston Villa in the league, and narrowly scraped by with a last-minute winner.

But, in truth that defeat was all down to mistakes by the Villa rather than an excellent performance by the Gunners.

They did produce a commanding win at home in the League Cup last time out against Nottingham Forest, but it will be fascinating to see which of these massive clubs can control this fixture.

Manchester United vs. Arsenal head-to-head

Manchester United hold the advantage in this fixture having won on 99 occasions compared to the Gunners’ 83 wins. There have also been 48 draws.

The last meeting between the sides ended in a comfortable 2-0 win for the Gunners, while United fought back for a 2-2 draw in the earlier game in the season at Old Trafford.

Manchester United Team News

Mason Greenwood will likely lead the line for United as Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford are both missing. Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly also remain out.

Arsenal Team News

Ainsley Maitland-Niles will miss out through suspension, while Alexandre Lacazette isn’t expected to be fit.

Manchester United vs. Arsenal EPL Predictions

This match has been billed as ‘El Sacko’ due to the pressure on both managers, and there is a sense that both sides can’t really afford to lose this game.

Defensive issues are overwhelming for both sides, and that’s why the preference would be for a draw.
