Arsenal v Manchester UTD Tips

Arsenal take on Manchester UTD in the live Super Sunday clash in the EPL this week, looking to bounce back from a thrilling 3:2 defeat to Swansea, while Manchester UTD go into the game full of confidence following a 3:0 stroll v Bolton.

Arsenal v Manchester UTD key stats / info
With 60% of Arsenal home games in the Premier League this season and 60% of Manchester UTD's games on the road having both seen under 2.5 goals, this is a case of the stats being misleading. Manchester UTD have scored 15 goals in their last 5 EPL games with Arsenal averaging almost 2 goals a game in total. Arsenal have scored in 9/10 home games while UTD have scored in 6 on the road.

Arsenal v Manchester UTD potential lineup / game pattern

As mentioned, the stats look a bit misleading in this one. I'm expecting both teams to play with only one holding midfielder and with plenty of attacking players on show, the game looks set to be end to end. Paul Scholes will add an extra creative dimension in the Man UTD midfield and look for Wayne Rooney to benefit from his passing abilities and vision and exploit the lack of pace of Mertesacker in the potential absence of Vermaelen for Arsenal. Rooney is coming off a brace in his last away game vs Man City and I fancy him to get chances in this one. Thierry Henry will undergo a fitness test before it's known if he will renew acquaintances against the old enemy for Arsenal.
