Manchester United vs Arsenal Preview - Premier League Preview and Odds

April 29th 2018 16:30 – Old Trafford

Premier League

Arsene Wenger will visit Old Trafford as Arsenal manager for the last time on Sunday as his farewell tour continues. Meanwhile, FA Cup finalists Manchester United will be looking to move a step closer to securing a second place finish in the league.

The home side have not enamoured many people (including many if their own fans) with their style of play this year yet their approach has proved to have been effective. In any other season, they would have been in a title race but Manchester City’s incredible performance put pay to that.

The Red Devils are in good form having won six of their last seven league matches and beaten Tottenham at their temporary home in the FA Cup semi-final. A date with Chelsea await Mourinho`s men.

There has long been a keen rivalry between these two teams, dating back to the days when the teams of Wenger and Alex Ferguson dominated the Premier League. In recent years, the club rivalry may have subsided somewhat but on a personal level, Wenger and Mourinho have not always seen eye to eye.

The Portuguese Coach has enjoyed a good record against his opposite number, remaining unbeaten in their first 13 encounters. Since then, Wenger has won two of their last five meetings but has yet to beat Mourinho away from home.

Arsenal`s last chance of qualifying for the Champions League was put in jeopardy on Thursday night when they were held at home by 10-man Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-final first leg. They now need a positive result in Spain to keep their hopes alive.

The Gunners have been poor on the road this term and have lost their last five in a row away from the Emirates. If they lose on Sunday, they tally of away defeats will reach 10 for the first time since 1990. With all their eggs in the Europa League basket, some key players could be rested for this clash.

Betting odds and tips

The Gunners have been poor on the road and will have one eye on next week`s game so their prospects don`t look good here.

As a result, the home win looks like a good bet with prices of 4/9 available.
