Today's free OddsDigger Manchester United vs Arsenal preview examines a Premier League clash between two of the competition's most successful teams. Neither side has lifted the league trophy for quite some time, however, with the home side last winning the title in 2013 and the visitors back in 2004. Nevertheless, next week's battle at Old Trafford promises to be an exciting one.
Ahead of this week's Manchester United vs Arsenal betting tips, the Red Devils have been in good form, winning six of their last seven Premiership matches. Mourinho's men triumphed over Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City during that run, though they were left embarrassed after a 0-1 loss at home to bottom club West Brom. Manchester United have only lost two of their seventeen league games this season at Old Trafford.
Arsenal look on course to have their worst league campaign under the management of Arsene Wenger. The Gunners are likely to finish in 6th place and it's their performances on the road that have scuppered their dreams of finishing in the top four. The Londoners have lost nine of their sixteen Premier League away matches, a sequence that includes five defeats from five on the road in 2018.
The Red Devils have been largely brilliant at Old Trafford this season, and we shouldn't let their recent setback against West Brom overshadow that. Their home record against teams from the top six in the Premier League is strong and it had a sizeable impact on today's Manchester United vs Arsenal bets. Man City are the only team from the current top six to win at the Theatre of Dreams in 2017/18.
The Gunners haven't won on any of their last ten league visits to play Utd. They have brought much better teams to Manchester and lost, so it stands to reason that this poor Arsenal incarnation will struggle next week. The Red Devils have tended to start their games fast at Old Trafford of late and they scored early in both of their most recent two wins there against Swansea and Liverpool.
Utd led at half time and full time in those contests and they are sure to come flying out of the traps against Arsene Wenger's strugglers again next weekend. With that considered, the first of our Premier League football tips recommends you put a stake on the home side to be winning at half time and full time again. Betway Sports have some wonderfully priced odds for that outcome that are well worth your consideration.
While our Manchester United vs Arsenal predictions suggest that the away team have little chance of securing a positive result in a week's time, they do have a great chance to at least get their names on the scoresheet. As poor as they have been in general terms, the Gunners are still a formidable attacking outfit. For example they have now scored in 100% of their last nine fixtures.
In the Premier League, they have only failed to scored twice in their last sixteen outings. They have scored more goals in total than fifteen of the other teams in the league. In Mezut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, they have forwards who always offer a threat. Utd have been winning, but they have kept just two clean sheets in their most recent eight.
Their failure to hit the net in their last home game against West Brom was only the second time in seventeen league home fixtures in 2017/18 that they were unable to score. The stats hint that both teams are capable of scoring next week and that's why we have included that betting pick in today's English football betting odds. You can find the most valuable odds for that market at William Hill.
