The great rivalry between Manchester United and Arsenal is slotted to take place on 1st October. The Red Devils are currently placed on 8th position in the Premier League table.
They have 8 points from 6 matches so far. On the other hand, The Gunners are ahead as they are currently on 4th position with 11 points from 6 games.
United’s disability of getting a proper attacking unit has cost them heavily. Their defensive unit was good, but constant pressure on them opened the doors. This happened in their recent game against West Ham United.
West Ham won the game on their home turf by a margin of 2-0. Goals from AndriyYarmolenko and a late strike from Aaron Cresswell cemented the victory. An injury to Marcus Rashford will also be a huge concern for the Red Devils.
On the other hand Arsenal fought valiantly, despite being one man down, against Aston Villa. They came back from behind and won the game 3-2. For Arsenal, their goalscorers were Nicolas Pepe, Calum Chambers and Pierre-EmerickAubameyang.
Last Meeting betweenthe Two Sides
Both the teams last met in the previous Premier League season. The game was played at the Emirates Stadium, which is the home ground of the Gunners.
Arsenal were clearly on top of the game winning it by 2-0. Granit Xhaka and Pierre-EmerickAubameyang were the scorers in the game.
The Red Devils would be eager to get a revenge this season and win the first encounter. They will have an added advantage as the game will be played on their home turf, the Old Trafford Stadium.
According to BigPesa, the Premier League betting odds in this match is revealed. While United have chances of 2.32 while Arsenal have chances of 3.05. A draw is staked at 3.7.
Revenge and Comeback On The Cards?
A break from the away games will give United some breathing space. They haven’t won any away games so far this season. They will try to attempt a comeback and also stage a revenge against Arsenal.
Before the Aston Villa game, Arsenal had blown two games despite being two goals ahead. A win while coming back from behind against Aston Villa will give them added motivation. They would try to keep their winning streak alive and consolidate their position in the top four of the league table.
