Arsenal have drifted out to a price of 8/11 for a top four finish in the Premier League this season, after they suffered their first home defeat of the season. Arsene Wenger’s men lost more ground on Saturday as they came unstuck at the Emirates against old rivals Manchester United. Both sides had gone into the match with just four league wins under their respective belts, and it was Arsenal who were left to wait in picking up their fifth, as they were suckerpunched in a 2-1 defeat.

The Gunners, who had problems defensively and mentally seeing out games this season, had controlled the bulk of the 90 minutes, but they ultimately came undone in the second half of the game through a clinical counter attack and a defensive mistake. Arsenal had been in control against a United line up which had been limited by injuries, but with Kieran Gibbs turning the ball into his own net, Arsenal’s issues were  compounded by Wayne Rooney finishing off a brilliant counter attack.

Olivier Giroud, on his first game back after his long layoff through injury, managed to pull back a late consolation goal deep into stoppage time. The brilliant finish confirmed just how much the Gunners have missed his presence up front, however, on top of the defeat, Arsenal saw midfielder Jack Wilshere and goalkeeper Wojciech Tomasz Szczesny hobbled off injured in the second half.

United deserve credit for the away win, considering that they were on the road at a top four side, with young defenders Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair starting in the back three. The win was also the first three points on the road for Louis van Gaal in his tenure at Manchester United, and the three points propelled them up into the top four at the expense of Arsenal, and the Red Devils are now available at 2/5 to finish in the top four with Coral.

Arsenal v Manchester United Betting Preview 

Huge clash in North London, as both really need to pick up maximum points to get themselves back in the hunt for a top four finish this season. Both have failed to live up to expectations and both managers are facing some stiff criticism. United have the head to head form going against the Gunners, but the Red Devils are yet to win on the road this season. Will the fragile Arsenal be able to put something on the board?

It’s a full weekend of Premier League action again and a good chance to build an acca.

Arsenal v Manchester United Betting Tips

The Red Devils are yet to get things right on the road this season and face a tough challenge on Saturday as Premier League betting returns. Louis van Gaal has led the Red Devils to just four wins across the season, and all of them have come at Old Trafford. Form isn’t with them as they have won just one of hteir last four and that was a narrow 1-0 at OT against Crytsal Palace. United are top heavy and while they have the forward power, from the defensive midfield back, they look very poor. Their record on the road this season stands at (D3 L2) and are yet to nail a balanced performance.

They have posted just the one clean sheet on the road this season (0-0 at Burnley) so you would expect them to ship a goal. Going forward the Red Devils have Robin van Persie, who has scored three goals in his last four Premier League matches against his former club) at 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market with William Hill, the same quote as can be taken on Wayne Rooney and Radamel Faclao. The last three meetings between Arsenal and United in the top flight have gone under 2.5 goals, but this will probably buck that trend.

It is worth looking towards goals in this one, as United’s away games have averaged 3 goals per game in them this term, while Arsenal have scored in each of their home games this season and have conceded in 80% of them too. The Gunners are struggling for form as well, having won just two of their last six in the Premier League (W2 D2 L2). Will the international break have done them good? In the week before the break, they draw 3-3 in the Champions League against Anderlecht after being 3-0 up, and then lost 2-1 at Swansea in their last Premier League match a few days later. That was after opening the scoring at the Liberty Stadium.

So the Gunners have won just the four Premier League matches this season, and former Manchester United man striker Danny Welbeck has been producing for England, there is more value in backing Alexis Sanchez to score for Arsenal. Sanchez, priced at 5/4 in the anytime goal scorer (the same quote as Welbeck) has scored six Premier League goals in his last four appearances and is carrying the weight of the goal scoring load on his shoulders.

The Gunners are unbeaten at home this season, but they have been so fragile this season, unable to close out matches, they have they have drawn three of their five at the Emirates. Just the one clean sheet has been posted. It does look as if Both Teams To Score for a price of 4/7 will produce value. In the recent head to head between the two, Arsenal haven’t posted a win in their last six against United (D2 L4). They have drawn their last two home matches at home against the Red Devils as well, and a 1-1 Correct Score bet is going to be attractive.

Arsenal v Manchester United Betting Odds

Arsenal 6/5, Man Utd 11/5, Draw 5/2

Arsenal v Manchester United Predictions

It is the unbeaten home form of the Gunners going up against the winless away form of United. What is going to give? What is going to be the telling factor? United look very likley to give up chances but you do question how fragile the Arsenal back line is when they come under pressure to try and close out games. Worth shooting for both teams to score and perhaps considering the draw option in the match outright.

Paddy Power

On each of the last two occasions that Arsenal v Manchester United betting has raised its head for a clash at the Emirates, the game has ended in a tie. The two played out a 0-0 there last season and it was a 1-1 in North London the season before that.

So two of the last three meetings have finished as a draw between these two, who are both looking to find the form to really mount a serious challenge for a top four finish this season. Both have only managed to win four league matches this season, with Arsenal drawing five of their eleven and the Red Devils picking up four draws of their own (two in their last four).

What a ninety minutes of Manchester derby betting action it is promising to be at the Etihad on Sunday. The visiting Red Devils are still looking for their first away win of the new league season and how much would they enjoy it coming at the home of their bitter rivals? Quite a bit you would imagine. With City’s form stuttering and Manuel Pellegrini’s tactics coming under scrutiny, will the Red Devils be able to pounce?

But City have won five of the last six league matches against United and so the form is with them. They also have home advantage and won’t want their foes rolling in and storming the castle. The reigning English champions also really need a massive response after a difficult run of form from there, including a home defeat against Newcastle in the League Cup during the week.

Will the Citizens be able to deliver something close their 4-1 win in this corresponding fixture from last season?

Premier League Betting

The first big Manchester derby of the new Premier League season and both will desperately be eying up three points in this one. It is going to be a costly afternoon for anyone who comes out on the losing end of this Sunday lunchtime clash in the English top flight.

Manchester City need points to get their title challenge going again after winning just three of their last seven played in the Premier League. Manchester United meanwhile, for whom keeper David de Gea is the only man to have played every minute of action this season, they are looking to get past the fact that this is their worst start ever to a Premier League season.

Manchester derby 2014 odds & prediction

In the recent head to heads for the Manchester derby, it is the blue side of the city who are running hot. Five of the last six Manchester derbies have been won by the Citizens, including a massive 4-1 home victory in last season’s corresponding fixture. A repeat of that kind of result for the reigning champions would give them a huge fillip in confidence after a difficult week for them, including a defeat at West Ham in the league last weekend.

There is a wealth of high quality striking power which could be on display in the Manchester derby 2014. On the blue side of things there is Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, and both have scored four goals in five league appearances against the Red Devils. On the red side of things, Wayne Rooney is back from suspension, and he is the all time leading goalscorer in Manchester derbies will eleven goals. Along with Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie, United have the strike force to do damage too.

But new United boss Louis van Gaal is still looking for his first away win of the season and getting one at the Etihad is not going to be an easy thing, not with their defence looking very vulnerable at the moment. Will City’s more settled defence be able to keep the Red Devils at bay? There are mounting questions over Manuel Pellegrini’s tactical rigidness which has cost the reigning champions points this season. Both sides have been conceding goals and there is likely to be plenty of chances.

Manchester Derby 2014 Prediction

Seven of the last eight meetings between the two teams in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals. It makes sense to expect another high scoring clash between the two rivals. As for picking out a winner, it is City at home with the form in Manchester derbies and they have to take some initiative in this match so as to not lose more ground on Champions-elect Chelsea. City to edge a high scoring game would probably be the way to go.

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Tips

Louis van Gaal has so far led Manchester United to their worst ever start to a Premier League season. Yes, worse than David Moyes’s efforts last season. To put that into context, United played a team who finished in the top four of last season’s table for the first time last weekend when they faced Chelsea. They  have taken just thirteen points from their opening nine games of the season. Robin van Persie saved them at Old Trafford last weekend with an injury time strike, and he, Radamel Falcao and Wayne Rooney can all be taken around the 6/1 mark in the first goalscorer market. Wayne Rooney, who is back from suspension, is the top goalscorer in Manchester derbies having netted 11 goals, and he has scored four goals in his last five Premier League appearances at the Etihad (3 in his last two).

United have now drawn their last two matches, taking a point against West Brom and Chelsea. They have lost just one of their last eight league matches, but only won three of those eight. While United have scored in three of their four away games in the top flight this season, they are still waiting for their first away win of the new term. Having just faced Chelsea, they now go against Man City and Arsenal in two of their next three league matches, so a really testing time for them. Are they ready for the test of Manchester City? Probably not, especially on the road, and with their shaky defence, there should be value in backing both teams to score and in backing the game to go over 2.5 goals.

City head into Sunday’s derby with a four point lead over United in the league. With Chelsea at home against QPR on the weekend, it’s likely that City can’t afford a defeat here. They blew a costly three points on the road at West Ham last weekend, and after struggles in the Champions League too, they really need a response. They do have the stats on their side to suggest that they can get an important three points here. Last season in this corresponding fixture, the Citizens ran out convincing 4-1 winners and momentum is fully with them in the recent Manchester derbies. City have won five and lost just one of the last six meetings in Premier League Manchester derbies. So the price of 5/6 favourites looks decent value at online bookmaker Paddy Power.

Both Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero have scored four goals in five Premier League appearances against the red Devils, and it is Aguero who is 3/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market for the game, with Dzeko at 6/1. Another key component in City’s quest for three points here could be Yaya Toure who has also scored in three of his last four against the Red Devils in the Premier League. City are looking to win four league matches in a row over Manchester United for the first time since 1970. Already trailing Chelsea by six points and with just three wins in their last seven league matches, can they get an injection of confidence from a derby win?

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester City v Manchester United Predictions

The likelihood is that Man City won’t lose this one. They are stronger in defence and have the power and creativity going forward to keep United on the back foot. Hard to see United’s first away win of the season coming at such a tough place. It is just worth backing the Citizens to put the win on the board and get their title challenge going again.

Well it has been three Premier League appearances from Radamel Falcao for Manchester United and just the one goal. Even with Wayne Rooney out suspended, he couldn’t even get into the starting lineup last Monday when the Red Devils went to the Hawthorns to face West Brom, a game which ended in a 2-2 draw, thanks to the United midfield.

But he may getting his chance to start against Chelsea on Sunday.

His goalscoring record, after all, does speak for itself. He is one of the great goalscorers of world football and during his career he has netted 139 goals in 208 starts in league matches. He has the track record, and the United fans are waiting to see him justify the price paid out by boss Louis van Gaal in a whopping loan deal for the Colombian.

But with Rooney still out and Robin van Persie looking like a shadow of his former self, there is a huge chance for Falcao to shine on Sunday. He is trading at 5/1 in the first goalscorer market, and 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. Can he make his impact? His lone strike in the Premier League this season came in a home win over Everton.

If Radamel Falcao scores against Chelsea on Sunday, then online betting site Skybet will refund losing bets on the correct score, scorecast, first goalscorer and last goalscorer markets.

Fantastic promotion and new customers registering an account with Skybet can get a risk free £20 bet as a welcome bonus.

William Hill

They are the league leaders for goals scored this season, and Chelsea head north to Manchester on Sunday in the search for more to try and extend their unbeaten start to the new season. In just one of their eight games so far this season have Chelsea failed to score more than one goal, and that came in a 1-1 draw against title rivals Manchester City.

Will the Manchester United defence looking all over the place at the moment, the Blues are favourites to win the match at Old Trafford, but who will be the hero of the day for them? Jose Mourinho’s men have been prolific this season, largely thanks to Diego Costa, who is probably going to miss this game with his hamstring problem. But they played two games over the last week without him and still scored eight goals.

That is the power of the Chelsea set up at the moment, and they have quality all over the pitch from Cesc Fabregas to Oscar to Eden Hazard who can find a way through what has been a very open Red Devils defence.

So the likelihood of Chelsea scoring in the match on Sunday is pretty high, which is great news for new William Hill customers.

New customers registering an account with William Hill can get a huge price boost when registering a new account.

Register an account with William Hill and use the special bonus code GOAL3 and place a £10 maximum bet on Chelsea To Score against Manchester United and you will receive the enhanced price of 3/1, which is an improvement from the regular 1/4 odds.
