Arsenal vs Man Utd: Predictions
This was once the clash for the Premier League title but while both teams aren’t enjoying the success they once used to, it’s still one of the biggest matches of any fixture list. Arsenal go into this particular meeting down in ninth, some 10 points behind Man Utd, but in good form and on their way up the table.
The Gunners have won five of their past six Premier League games, drawing once, to move themselves comfortably away from the relegation zone and back in contention for the European spots. The poor run of November and December, which started after a win over Man Utd, has been put in the back of the mind and Arsenal are reaping the rewards for sticking with Mikel Arteta.
It wasn’t too long ago that Man Utd found themselves in a similar position. They also stuck with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and it paid off, with the Red Devils just one point off top spot and very much in the Premier League title race.
However, they do go into this game off the back of a defeat, and a shock one at that. Hosting basement club Sheffield United at Old Trafford in midweek, Man Utd were expected to win and return top of the Premier League, after Man City had overtaken them. But goals from Kean Bryan and Oliver Burke, either side of a Harry Maguire header, handed Man Utd their first league defeat since Arsenal beat them in November and put them in the chasing pack for the title.

Arsenal vs Man Utd: Match Stats
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s involvement uncertain at the moment due to personal reasons, Arsenal will be relying on Alexandre Lacazette to help them cause Man Utd’s defence problems as Sheffield United did. The Frenchman goes into this game in decent form, scoring five goals in his past six Premier League matches including the final strike in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Southampton in midweek.
This is a game neither team can afford to lose in their respective challenges for the season, and it could just be the case that they’ll cancel each other out in an exciting match, particularly as Man Utd look to recover from their defeat.
