Manchester United v Arsenal Betting Tips and Preview
After mixed fortunes at the weekend, Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Winless in 3 games, Jose Mourinho will be looking for a result to ensure his job is safe in Manchester. As it stands, Man United are closer to bottom of the league than top, a worrying stat for a side that should be challenging for the top 4. Arsenal on the other hand, look closer to challenging for the Champions League spots than they have done for a couple of years. Unai Emery has got Arsenal winning again and the Gunners are now 19 games unbeaten.

Manchester United Premier League Form
Last Time Out In The Premier League
Romelu Lukaku ended his horrid goalscoring duck with a goal in Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Southampton. United found themselves 2-0 down after just 20 minutes at St Mary’s, after Jose Mourinho selected a strange starting XI. With 5 defenders, including 2 natural midfielders, it’s no surprise that Stuart Armstrong was left completely open in the area to grab his 3rd goal in 2 games. Cedric Soares added a second just seven minutes later with a free kick that gave David De Gea no chance. In a hectic first half, Marcus Rashford inspired a comeback, setting both Lukaku and Ander Herrera to draw Man United level. It was a quiet second half as both sides were reduced to efforts from long range.
Arsenal Premier League Form
Last Time Out In The Premier League
An incredible North London Derby saw Arsenal come from behind to beat Tottenham 4-2 at the Emirates Stadium. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang’s electric form continued with an early penalty, before they fell behind. Eric Dier’s glanced header was followed by Harry Kane’s penalty to send the Gunners in 2-1 down. It would be Unai Emery’s men who would have the better of the second half. Aubameyang scored the pick of the goals, with a curling effort from outside the area. Alexandre Lacazette scored his 6th goal of the season, before Lucas Torreira put the final nail in Spurs’ coffin. After some questionable displays in North London Derbies under Arsene Wenger, this was a true sign that Unai Emery’s reign has begun.
