Arsenal vs Manchester United predictions

Arsenal vs Manchester United predictions- Arsenal turned on the style in midweek as an inspired second half performance saw them thrash Huddersfield 5-0 at The Emirates, following on from their last ditch victory away to Burnley last weekend.

There was still a tinge of disappointment about though, because star striker Alexandre Lacazette was forced off injured against The Terriers and faces a few weeks on the sidelines now. He will be sorely missed, but in Olivier Giroud they have a more than adequate replacement up front.

That thrashing of Huddersfield made it three league wins in a row for The Gunners, but it’s at home where they really come to life. They have won every single home league game this season, and looking back into last season they have won 12 on the bounce now. This includes wins over Spurs and Manchester United as well, so Arsene Wenger will be feeling quietly confident about his chances on Saturday.

Manchester United did put in a stellar attacking performance in midweek as they beat Watford 4-2 away from home, but it did little to mask their emerging problems on the road. They conceded two silly goals and nearly let their 3-0 lead slip at Vicarage Road, and it was just last week that they lost 1-0 in Basel.

In fact, away from home they have lost three of their last five in all competitions, failing to score against both Chelsea and Basel. They also failed to find the net against Liverpool earlier in the season, and considering Arsenal have kept a clean sheet in five of their last six at home we’re not fancying Manchester United’s chances on Saturday.

Arsenal know that a win on Saturday would take them to within a point of 2nd placed Manchester United, and Wenger has the more recent history on his side in this old rivalry. Arsenal have only lost one of their last five Premier League home games against Manchester United and have won their last two without conceding. Mourinho has failed to win each of his last 11 trips to big six opposition too, so backing Arsenal to Win on Saturday looks a good value bet along with a narrow 1-0 correct score Arsenal vs Manchester United predictions.
