‘Gunners to punish Man Utd’ – Arsenal price shortens on Old Trafford victory

Published

on

Two teams in complete disarray but with vastly differing fortunes meet at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Eight-placed Manchester United host fourth Arsenal, with both side lacking in on-pitch identity and direction from their two respective managers.

United scraped past Rochdale on penalties in the League Cup in midweek but are nonetheless slight favourites at 11/8 to take all three points here.

With an injury crisis upfront, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could hand seventeen-year-old Mason Greenwood his first league start. He is 13/8 to bag anytime.

United were comfortably beaten 2-0 by West Ham last weekend. The Hammers had six shots on David De Gea’s goal in that one and it is evens for Arsenal to have over 4.5 on target this weekend.

Lacklustre performances with no clear plan so far this season is the reason Solksjaer finds himself 4/1 to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked.

Arsenal have given away three penalties in the seven league games played up to now. It is 2/1 for a penalty to be conceded in this one and 7/2 for a red card in what is usually a feisty encounter.

Unai Emery’s Gunners may be third but they have become a completely chaotic team out on the pitch.

There is no clear structure between the players, the cannot defend, but they most certainly can attack. Both teams to score at 8/15 seems a given then.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been without his partner Alexandre Lacazette for a few weeks due to injury, but he is showing no signs of ending his phenomenal form in front of goal anytime soon.

Aubameyang is 6/5 to score anytime, and Nicholas Pepe, the tricky winger who scored his first for the club against Aston Villa last week, is 13/8.

United have not lost to Arsenal at home in the league since September 2006. They are rightly the favourites for this one but a game with little quality but lots of goals should be expected.
