Manchester United vs. Arsenal: Gunners favourites to win “Elsackio”



Comically nicknamed “Elsackio” on social media this week, Monday Night football sees a wounded Manchester United side host Arsenal.

Both Solskjaer and Emery are under increasing pressure following poor starts to the new campaign, and it would be no surprise to see either leave their job before the season’s out.

Things are going from bad to worse for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who saw his side completely outplayed by West Ham last weekend before needing penalties to see off League One Rochdale in the Carabao Cup. Humiliating.

United are already 13 points adrift of league leaders Liverpool and currently sit level on points with Sheffield United and Burnley in mid table. For a team of United’s stature, that’s nowhere near good enough.

As for Arsenal they ended a run of three league games without a win with a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa last weekend. The Gunners came from behind twice with ten men to secure a much needed three points to keep them within touching distance of the top four.

Pierre Aubameyang is a man in form, he’s bagged six goals so far this season and is 9/2 to open the scoring at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are set to be without a number of key players, particularly in attacking positions. Tony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba could all miss the game.

Jesse Lingard, yet to score this season, has a habit of bagging against Arsenal. The attacking midfielder scored in season’s 2-2 draw at Old Trafford and he’s 3/1 to score anytime Monday night.

Over 2.5 goals has copped in four of the last five meetings between the two sides and it’s 4/6 for three or more goals at Old Trafford. Which looks a banker considering the vulnerability of both defences.

Low in confidence and desperate for a win Manchester United are 7/5 to pick up all three points, the draw is 5/2 and Arsenal are slight favourites at 7/4.
