Arsenal vs. Manchester United value odds – 2019/20 EPL betting

  • When: Wednesday, January 1 – 8:00p.m Local time
  • Where: Emirates Stadium, London, United Kingdom

Manchester United will be hoping to cross over into the new decade in style when they make the trip to London for a bout against Arsenal in the English Premier League. Arguably the fiercest rivals at the dawn of the previous decade, both sides will be determined to get a result out of the encounter, especially now that both teams are managed by Ole Gunner Solskjaer and Mikel Arteta—legends at their respective clubs.

Having put up a stellar performance on Boxing Day against visiting Newcastle United, the Red Devils continued with their fine run of form by beating Burnley 2-0 at the Turf Moor two days later. The result saw United momentarily trim their gap with fourth-placed Chelsea to a single point, only for the Blues to restore their four-point lead following a thrilling win in a London derby.

Arsenal on the other hand blew away a lead to lose 2-1 to Chelsea in a thrilling cross-city rivalry that took place on Sunday evening in English Premier League betting. The defeat, the first of Mikel Arteta’s managerial reign, saw the Gunners drop to twelfth on the table on 24 points—seven points behind Manchester United in fifth.

The pressure will certainly be on the home side which has suffered four consecutive home defeats for the first time in six decades.

Plenty of injury concerns linger for Arteta ahead of United’s visit. Calum Chambers hobbled off in the defeat against Chelsea, with the defender expected to be sidelined for a while with a knee problem. Under-fire Granit Xhaka may be in contention for a return on Wednesday having missed the Chelsea defeat with illness. Dani Ceballos, Hector Bellerin and Gabriel Martinelli are all closing in on a return having missed in recent weeks due to hamstring injuries. Sead Kolasinac and Kieran Tierney are set to continue with their prolonged spells on the sidelines due to ankle and shoulder injuries respectively, while Sokratis Papastathopoulos is a huge doubt having sustained a concussion barely a week ago.

A number of first team players are closing in on returns ahead of United’s trip to the Emirates Stadium this Wednesday. Marcos Rojo (muscle), Eric Bailly (knee), Timothy Fosu-Mensah (knee) are close to full recovery, although the game against Arsenal may come too soon for the defensive trio. Paul Pogba, whose season has been hampered with an ankle injury, may waltz back into the starting eleven having missed the win over Burnley. Scott McTominay and Axel Tuanzebe however remain sidelined with knee and hamstring injuries respectively.

Manchester United’s wins over the last couple of games can be attributed to the red-hot form of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. The attacking duo has played an intricate role in United’s campaign this season, with both players scoring a joint total of 26 goals in all competitions. Rashford, who has played a part in 21 goals for United thus far, is currently enjoying a purple patch which could see him strike the back of the net against Arsenal.

Arsenal v Manchester United EPL Match Prediction

Although Mikel Arteta has yet to register a win since taking over the managerial role at Arsenal a few weeks ago, there were plenty of positives to draw from his side’s performance against Chelsea. Despite the congested Christmas fixture, Manchester United has won their last two EPL games. Currently beaming with confidence with four victories in their last four trips to the Emirates, United could very well emerge with a win against an Arsenal side that has won just one of their last 15 games across the board.
