Manchester United v Arsenal Preview And Predictions - Premier League Week 14

Manchester United and Arsenal bring the curtain down on the midweek Premier League action when they clash at Old Trafford on Thursday night. The hosts will still have Michael Carrick in the dugout while new interim manager Ralf Rangnick waits for clearance on his work permit and one expects to see far more commitment from the United players as they bid to impress the new boss. Check out our preview and predictions below, and if playing online casino is your choice of entertainment, head over to Genting Casino and enjoy our premium experience with over 3000 of your favourite online slots and live casino table games available on any device.


Recent Form

Ralf Rangnick has been appointed as the interim manager of the Red Devils, the hailed king of German management has inspired other German managers such as Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel and Julian Nagelsmann who are all some of the hottest products in the managerial game at the moment. 

Michael Carrick was the caretaker manager for the game against Chelsea where we saw Jadon Sancho get his first Premier League goal just after the stroke of half-time. A Jorginho penalty in the 69th minute meant that Manchester United had to make do with one point, though they’ll be after more when hosting the Gunners.

Arsenal sit five points clear of their historic rivals after a comfortable victory over Newcastle United on the weekend. The Gunners struggled to create chances and freely move the ball in the first half, but it was a different team that came out for the second with Arsenal playing the passing football that we became so accustomed to seeing under Arsene Wenger. 

A goal from Gabriel Martinelli after only being on the pitch for a minute was the highlight of the game, and if the young Brazilian can stay fit for an extended period of time he could be a real force for the London side later on in the season. 

Double Chance Arsenal-Draw

In the last ten league fixtures these two have played against each other, Arsenal come out on top, with a record of W4-D4-L2. 

Mikel Arteta is unbeaten and hasn’t conceded a goal in the three games he has played against Manchester United, both teams failed to score in the latest bout between the two, but two wins-to-nil will give Arsenal fans some confidence going into this one. 

Before Ole Gunnar-Solskjaer’s sacking, he only managed to beat Arsenal once in the six games he played against them, which was a 3-1 victory in the FA Cup fourth round. 

It has been a rather low scoring affair in the last ten encounters, with 70% of the fixtures having less than 2.5 match goals. 

In addition to this, half of the games have had exactly two goals scored in them, so there could be some value to be had in backing the exact match goals here.

Manchester United are easily favourites to win this game and we think that the bookies have made a mistake in that. 

The Red Devils will come out with a bit more confidence than under Ole but there is only so much that a new manager can do in three days of being at the club. 

Considering Arsenal have only lost once (to Liverpool 4-0) in the last 12 fixtures and Manchester United have only managed to win once (3-0 Tottenham) out of their last eight games, not to mention that the result has either been Arsenal or draw on eight out of the last ten matches between the two sides, the double chance looks the smart play.
