Man United vs. Arsenal prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for Premier League match | Sporting News

Must read

Arsenal will hope to keep pace at the top of the Premier League table as they travel north to visit Old Trafford for a meeting with Manchester United on Sunday.

The Gunners came into the weekend a point ahead of Man City in the standings, but the defending champions hold a game in hand and thus have one hand on the trophy. Arsenal have just two more games with which to leap their rivals, as time is running out, and the pressure is on as City’s victory over Fulham has given them the outright lead for now, with Arsenal needing a response.

Their slip against Aston Villa in mid-April may prove costly, but to Arsenal’s credit they have recovered well and done their best to nip at Man City’s heels down the stretch. They have won three straight since that defeat by a combined 7-2 score, including an impressive 3-0 win over an in-form Bournemouth last time out.


The opposite is the case for Man United, whose season is spiraling out of control at the end, seeing a European place slip away and leaving them eighth in the standings. They have just one win in their last seven league games since the March international break, and the 4-0 pasting by Crystal Palace last time out left Erik ten Hag out of ideas on how to drag this patchwork Red Devils squad to the finish line.

Man United vs Arsenal prediction, odds

  • Moneyline lean: Arsenal (-250)
  • Score prediction: Man United 0-3 Arsenal

Manchester United have never been more vulnerable, disorganised, and off course than they are right now, having already confirmed their worst-ever Premier League finish with two matches still to go. The Red Devils are laden with injuries in defence, and completely out of form in the attack.

Arsenal are in a complete opposite position, laser-focused on their slim odds in the title race. The Gunners may not be destined for the top spot at the end of the season, but they are giving themselves the best possible chance to pounce if Man City slip.

Man United vs Arsenal best bet

  • Pick: Arsenal to win 1H & over 1.5 goals
  • Odds: +200 (BetMGM)

Manchester United haven’t just been poor over the past few weeks, they’ve been poor across the entirety of the 90 minutes, including right from the start of games.

Prior to the Crystal Palace whooping, the Red Devils gave up significant first half chances to Burnley, plus goal concessions to Sheffield United, Bournemouth, Liverpool, and Chelsea all since the start of April. Arsenal should be well positioned to bang in goals and put this match away early.

Man United vs Arsenal prop bet

  • Pick: Martin Odegaard to score or assist a goal
  • Odds: -105 (FanDuel)

With Arsenal expected to score at will against a defensively victimised opponent, goal scoring and goal creation numbers present very little value, especially for a Gunners squad which seems to rotate goal scorers each and every game with no true No. 9 up front.

Martin Odegaard, however, has been a consistent presence, largely in the creative department but also cropping up to score on occasion. After a wacky eight-match run of league games without an assist despite 19 key passes worth 1.66 xA, Odegaard finally got back on the sheet with a pair of setups against Chelsea in late April.

Last time they met, Odegaard found a goal while ripping off a season-high five shots, his second career strike in six games against Man United. He has never assisted a goal against Man United, despite 11 key passes worth just over 1.0 xA, so he’s due in that sense as well.
