Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview

Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Southampton on Tuesday night moved the ‘Gunners’ to within striking distance of the top six and marked a sixth straight league game without defeat (W5, D1). Impressively, four of those victories saw Arsenal beat the -1 handicap in at least one half and/or win both halves – they memorably did the former in last season’s corresponding fixture (W 2-0).


Aiming for a first league double over Manchester United since 2006/07, Arsenal swept Newcastle aside 3-0 in their last home league game, despite failing to score before HT for a third competitive home outing in succession. They are unbeaten in four Premier League (PL) outings here (W2, D2), with both wins seeing their first and third goals separated by less than 30 minutes of play.


Manchester United require only a clean sheet to surpass their now equal-best club run of 17 top-flight away games unbeaten (W13, D4). Despite a shock midweek loss at home to Sheffield United, the second-placed visitors should still be in a confident mood here as they’ve won all seven away league fixtures this term in which they’ve conceded first, on top of averaging 2.40 goals per PL away game (W8, D2) so far this campaign.


Despite losing the reverse H2H, United’s all-time top-flight record against Arsenal is strong (W75, D45, L63 – GF 272, GA 248), with an average of 2.84 total goals per match (either way) across that entire 114-year old record. A good start is important, as a 72.22% majority (13) of their last 18 PL H2Hs won/lost vs Arsenal have seen the victor on the day lead at HT.

Players to watch: Bukayo Saka has scored Arsenal’s second goal of the day in all three of their league victories attained so far this calendar year. The visitors’ danger man, Portuguese penalty powerhouse Bruno Fernandes, has seen 75% (six) of his previous eight converted spot kicks for Man United act as decisive openers.


Hot stat: A win here will see Arsenal complete a run of three successive top-flight home H2H victories for the first time since May 1991.
