Man Utd vs Arsenal: Predictions

Manchester United officially begin life under Ralf Rangnick on Thursday night with Arsenal being the visitors to Old Trafford. The German boss is known for his love of high-pressing, high-energy football, something which had perhaps been lacking at United in the final throes of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer era so far this season.

Since the Norwegian was sacked, United have picked up a vital away win in the Champions League over Villarreal and were able to take a hard-earned, if slightly fortunate draw from league leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Rangnick will see this match as an opportunity to endear himself to the Red Devils’ faithful at the earliest opportunity.

Arsenal have certainly improved from their dreadful start to the season and now find themselves in fifth place having lost just one of their last 12 matches. However, that defeat came in the shape of a 4-0 mauling from title contenders Liverpool and tells a story in itself, with the Gunners struggling to compete with teams of better quality than themselves of late.

Mikel Arteta is starting to win the faith of the Emirates Stadium fanbase again though and after his side bounced back to winning form after that defeat at Anfield by beating Newcastle United at home last weekend, they can make this trip north in higher spirits. The Londoners have a decent record in this fixture of late too, having not lost in any of the last five meetings between these two clubs.

Man Utd vs Arsenal: Match Stats

Aaron Wan Bissaka is a fine defender, but his proficiency in possession leaves a little to be desired at times. In 13 matches so far, the right-back has averaged just 47.85 passes per 90 minutes – the 10th lowest in the Manchester United squad. In possession, United will look to their more talented attacking players and an unders bet on the money line for Wan Bissaka passes looks good to us, with under 55.5 the market on offer.

Both goals in Manchester United’s draw with Chelsea over the weekend were scored after the half-time whistle, as were both of their goals in the 0-2 win over Villarreal previous. Arsenal meanwhile have conceded just one first-half goal in their last ten Premier League games, but they’ve also failed to score in the first-half in any of their last three.
