Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction Prediction Match Details

On Sunday, Manchester United will host Arsenal at Old Trafford for round 37 of the Premier League. Arsenal faces significant pressure to maintain their pace for the title, while Red Devils boss Erik Ten Hag is under mounting pressure.

Manchester United Preview & Form

Manchester United has had poor form in the Premier League this season. They suffered their 13th league defeat in their last match against Crystal Palace, resulting in a 4-0 loss. This is the highest total defeat the Red Devils have experienced in any one campaign since 1989/90. Consequently, there is mounting pressure on Manchester United head coach Erik Ten Hag. The team has moved to eighth place on the table with 54 points earned, and they are three points off the European competition race. United have won only one of their last seven EPL games.

Although United is considered an underdog against the Gunners, their home form has not been bad, as they have only lost one Premier League match in their last five games, playing two draws and winning the other two. The Red Devil’s biggest issue is keeping clean sheets, as they have only kept one clean sheet at home during the run. However, their attack has scored in each of their last five matches.

Arsenal Preview & Form

Arsenal are entering this match on the back of an impressive recovery from their surprise 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa a few weeks ago. They have won all four of their Premier League games since the defeat, scoring 13 goals and conceding just two. Last weekend, they comfortably beat Bournemouth 3-0 at the Emirates and will be looking to take all three points again in their upcoming trip to Old Trafford. Mikel Arteta’s team is keen to maintain their winning streak with only two games left in their bid for the title with Manchester City.

Arsenal has been performing exceptionally well away from home. They have gone unbeaten in the Premier League in their last eight away games, recording seven wins and a draw. The Gunners will be confident in continuing their unbeaten run against Manchester United after defeating Tottenham in their last away match.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Team News

Manchester United have received a boost as some of their key players, including Marcus Rashford, Lisandro Martinez, Bruno Fernandes, and Scott McTominay, returned to training ahead of their match against Arsenal. Anthony Martial has also been taking part in full training after recovering from a groin operation. However, Erik ten Hag, the United manager, has several notable absentees to contend with. Defenders Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof, and Raphael Varane are still not fit enough to be in contention. Additionally, ten Hag has ruled out Martinez from playing in the Arsenal match, as he has only returned to training this week after a long period out of the game. Mason Mount has also been ruled out after picking up an injury in training. 

On the other hand, Arsenal’s only injury concern is Jurrien Timber. The former Ajax defender has been out for the entire season with an ACL injury sustained during pre-season. Although he is close to a return, it is unlikely that he will be immediately thrust into the first team at this crucial point of the season.
