Arsenal News and Form – Will Arsenal beat Man Utd?

The Gunners failed to hold onto a lead against Chelsea on Sunday. Despite holding a 1-0 halftime advantage, a collapse at the end by Arsenal gave the Blues a victory. But the positive from the display at least, was that Arsenal looked energetically more competitive. They weren’t as laboured with Mikel Arteta taking charge for the first time at home. The home record of Arsenal this season is W3 D4 L3. That’s nowhere near good enough by the standards of a club who expect to be playing in the Champions League. Arsenal are eleven points outside of the top four heading into the new year. It has been one win in their last dozen league fixtures only.

Anthony Martial First Goalscorer


There has been no clean sheet from Arsenal in their last six home games in the top flight. They have shipped at least two goals in each of their last there four there. Each of the three home wins that Arsenal have taken this season have been by one goal margin only. There has only been one home clean sheet for the Gunners in this campaign, with both teams scoring in 8 of their 10 home fixtures. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has scored each of Arsenal’s last three league goals. In 12 of their 20 league games this season, Arsenal have conceded the opening goal of fixtures.

Manchester United News and Form – Can Man Utd beat Arsenal?

Manchester United earned a 2-0 win at Burnley on Saturday. That built on their big away win at Newcastle on Boxing Day. So they are back into some kind of form, having suffered just one loss in their last nine top flight fixtures. Away from Old Trafford it has been a low-par season by the Red Devils. Their road record is at W3 D3 L4 only. But the positive out of that lacklustre form is that two of their three away victories have come in their last three road games. So there been recent improvement from them.

Considering that one of those wins happened at Manchester City, then it clearly has been better stuff from them. Manchester United have scored at least two goals in seven of their last nine league outings. So there isn’t anything wrong with their goal scoring output at the moment. If you look at the defensive department, then things are not so good there. Manchester United have secured one clean sheet since a home win over Leicester in the middle of September. Just three of United’s away games this season have made it over 2.5 goals, with United only netting 2 goals in 10 away games. They will kick off the new year four points outside of the top four.

Arsenal vs Manchester United Predictions

Man Utd to win: Not the big high-profile clash that games between Arsenal and Man Utd used to be. Because the Gunners will need more time to gel together under their new boss, and with Man Utd having shown a winning touch recently, the away win is worth a look.
