Arsenal v Manchester United is definitely the biggest match of this weekend and all eyes are on both teams to show the early team to take advantage of the loosing Manchester City. Sunday’s contest at the Emirates Stadium once again has a top-of-the-table edge to it with Arsenal sitting only three points behind league leaders United, and Wenger believes that means this weekend’s meeting takes on extra importance.
I think Man United are good value with the game odds. Man United won their last 4 games in all competitions, and got a good win in the midweek against Wolfsburg. Arsenal on the other hand though sitting 4th with just 3 points behind Man United have had 2 losses at the Champions league stage and that doesn’t look good. However, there is a upside, They are the only team to have beaten Leicester and with a convincing win at that so Morale is high to face Louis Van gaal
Manchester United are unbeaten in four away matches against Arsenal. They have never gone five without a loss away to the Gunners in the Barclays Premier League era.
Arsenal’s win rate of 24% against Manchester United in the BPL is their lowest versus any team in the competition.
Wayne Rooney scored his first Barclays Premier League goal (October 2002), his first league goal for Man Utd (October 2004) and his 100th BPL goal (January 2010) against Arsenal.
Louis van Gaal has lost just one of his five meetings with Arsene Wenger (all competitions).
